‘Weak foot rocket’, ‘sensational’ – How some fans reacted to Chelsea loan stars international goal

Chelsea’s production line of young stars is already at an impressive level. Mason Mount, Tammy Abraham, Fikayo Tomori, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Reece James have already broken into the starting XI at Stamford Bridge.

Marc Guehi, and Billy Gilmour have also made appearances as they stake a claim for more senior action.… Read More

‘Immense talent’, Remember the name’ – How some Chelsea fans have reacted to Reece James’ Champions League performance

Chelsea fans were out in force to praise the youngster who salvaged a point, in what was a dramatic night at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues trailed 3-1 at half-time, when the 19-year-old entered the action in place of Marcos Alonso. Little did fans know that half an hour later, James would prove the hero with The Blues coming back from 4-1 down to draw 4-4, thanks to an equaliser from the Chelsea prodigy.… Read More

‘Emotional rollercoaster’ – How some Chelsea fans reacted to night of high drama at Stamford Bridge

A crazy night at Stamford Bridge that nobody could have predicted. An early own goal followed by an early penalty set the tone to what will go down as one of The Blues most memorable nights in recent history.

Ajax looked in control during the first-half, going in at the break with a 3-1 lead.… Read More

CHELSEA 3-2 Arsenal: Sarri’s Subs the Difference

As first home games of a season go, yesterdays didn’t disappoint in the edge-of-your-seat stakes, although for a 15-minute spell under-your-seat might have been a preferable place to watch it from. With both Chelsea and Arsenal in the very early stages of adapting to new managers with new ideas, and both with defences akin to a boxer with a glass jaw, it was always going to be an interesting game and you’d have to say it lived up to that expectation.Read More

Huddersfield 0-3 CHELSEA: Solid Start for Sarri

 

Plenty will tell you the scoreline doesn’t tell the whole story, here at TheChelseaBlog, what I’ll say is 3-0 didn’t exactly flatter us either.

Chelsea ended the game with 3 goals away from home and a clean sheet, so a pretty good start to welcome Maurizio Sarri to life in the Premier League (or maybe a season or two given the club’s track record).Read More

CHELSEA 2-3 Burnley: False Start for Chelsea

You know when the gun goes off at the start of a race and there’s someone with their foot trapped in the starting blocks and they try to free it but their shoe comes off? No me neither, but if Chelsea were Olympic sprinters………..you get the picture.
It’s fair to say it took us a while to get out of the starting blocks yesterday and yet another red card thrown into the mix, this time for Gary Cahill, didn’t help much either.… Read More

Arsenal 1-1 CHELSEA (4-1 pens): No ABBA fans here

As Community Shields go, it was more of a curtain twitcher than a curtain raiser but it gave the neurotic section of support a trial run to the supermarket for their pampers, so all was not lost. … Read More

CHELSEA 2-2 Spurs: Finally Some Fight

The 2015/16 season is all over now bar the shouting (and a few FA charges) although in reality, ours was over a lot sooner than most. That’s not to write us off completely though because whilst the football and the attitude of our players have stank for most of the season, Monday night’s second half might just leave us with the faintest glimmer of hope for better days ahead again.… Read More

CHELSEA 4-0 Maccabi: Normal service resumed?

So finally we get a win again, albeit against Europe’s equivalent of Accrington Stanley but as the cliché goes – you can only beat what’s in front of you – and to be fair, 4-0 was a convincing win.

Jose rang the changes, dropping Ivanovic, JT, Matic and Costa to the bench and whether that was intended as chastisement for poor performances or with an eye on Arsenal at the weekend, it was effective.… Read More

QPR v CHELSEA: Preview

I’m sure there are plenty out there well up up for this today. Me? I hate this sort of game.
