Stamford Bridge atmosphere needs to improve

What do you make of the atmosphere at Stamford Bridge this season? Whilst not exactly in the realms of ‘the library’, it’s not really conducive to Champions of Europe style performances either is it?

One person who sounds as if he thinks both of the above apply though is TheChelseaBlog reader Josh Holmes.… Read More

Sacking our Champions League-winning coach makes perfect sense

Let’s be under no illusion here. Roman Abramovich was spot on in sacking Roberto Di Matteo. No question. Di Matteo wasn’t delivering the results Roman craved, and he had to go, it’s really very simple.

Chelsea’s performance in Turin was embarrassingly bad. Not only have we conceded 3 goals away from home in a vital game, but we are now on the brink of Champions League exit, and with only one game to save ourselves, we might not go through.… Read More

Reaction: We’ve got the Substance to go with the Style

What a game that was against Spurs last weekend. It had goals, an exciting twist, and sweetest

Reaction: Turns out we don’t need to Use the Force…

I’m not going to say it. I’m not even going to think it, or write it. However we are already seeing very encouraging signs that we can, and will build on last season’s 6th place league finish. With the attacking promise shown against Norwich yesterday, only time will tell how high that could be.… Read More

Why Oriol Romeu can fill the half-full glass

Ok, you’re getting a break from me today courtesy of a debut piece on here from a new addition.  James is Chelsea through and through and he’s not bad at this writing lark, so here’s his take on our midfield right now….


When I think back to the Chelsea side that Jose Mourinho assembled in his first season as manager, I have a great feeling of longing for what once was.… Read More

Di Matteo heaps praise on Oscar as Mikel apologises

It was a mixed night for Chelsea in the Champions League last night as they threw away a 2-0 lead to draw with Juventus at Stamford Bridge.… Read More

Chelsea’s Hidden Talent

With Meireles gone and Essien returning back to his “Daddy” it seems that we have left ourselves fairly short in the central midfield area this season, or rather the 2 in the 4-2-3-1. … Read More

Chelsea Transfers: A Look At What We’ve Got

So, the transfer window is closed and there was no last minute signing from Chelsea. I’m not too worried since some key signings came in earlier in the transfer window but there are still a couple questions and positions that will still need to be figured out based on the squad now available.… Read More
