A weekend of crowning the expected kings

One more big game left before the World Cup. In the meantime, much was decided atop the major European leagues this weekend. Barca looked the most dominant of the title-winners, smashing Valladolid 4-0 while never having to rev above 2nd gear to do it. Sure, Messi whiffed on an easy…

FA Cup Final – Chelsea 1-0 Portsmouth

As they did in the Premier League, Chelsea underachieved but still managed to bring home the hardware. This was a sloppy, nervy game from both sides. I can understand why underdog Pompey was anxious, but Chelsea — league champs, world class players up and down the pitch, elite manager —…

FA Cup – Halftime

0-0, and I have to say one of the most exciting 0-0s I’ve seen. Chelsea’s smacked the frame 5 times — 5 times! One of those went halfway across the line before bouncing out. Kalou missed point blank from a yard out with an empty goal in front of him.…

Bad day at the office

Saturday’s match against Wigan was an embarrassment for Chelsea, but Ancelotti was right when he said they deserved to lose. I’m not going to waste any time protesting Cech’s red card – I think the ref made the correct decision. Rodallega was brought down in the penalty area, and Cech…

Which managers are truly elite (and can be hired)?

This is interesting: Guus Hiddink has opened the door to a possible return to the Premier League after revealing that he retains a strong appetite and passion for English football following his successful caretaker spell at Chelsea. The Russia manager plans to take a break after next year’s World Cup…

Soccer has nothing to do with objectivity; why does everyone keep acting like it does?

Eduardo’s flop. Rooney’s pseudo-flop. Arshavin’s non-flop no-call. Chelsea’s transfer ban. Man U’s potential transfer ban. Bolton’s red card vs. Liverpool. Old Trafford’s record of convenient calls. The ejection of Arsene Wenger. The FA charges against Rafa Benitez. Clock management and injury time. The transfer value of any player. Pretty much…

Chelsea given transfer death penalty by FIFA

Breaking: Chelsea have been banned from signing any new players until 2011, after Fifa accused them of illegally inducing a French youth-team player to join the club in 2007. Fifa’s dispute resolution chamber today released a statement fining Gaël Kakuta €780,000 following a complaint from FC Lens and finding Chelsea…

Fulham 0 – 2 Chelsea

Good win for us today! Another beauty from Drogba, and Anelka scored his first goal of the season. Also, it was our first clean sheet, which is something we need every match if we are to win the Prem this year. That, plus LOTS more goals, and for Joe Cole…

Masochism – supporting Chelsea for another season

So, what chance Chelsea this year? Just more Masochism, right? Do we just want to be disappointed? You can pretty much replace the name Chelsea in the title for any but a few clubs in the EPL, because investing heart and soul, as we true fans stupidly do, is a…
