Chelsea didn’t want it anyway..

April 13, 2011 by


Chelsea suffered their annual Champions League heart-ache last night, although by Chelsea standards it wasn’t their usual dramatic exit. No “ghost-goal” from Luis Garcia this time, or a John Terry slip which sent Chelsea packing. We didn’t even have the pleasure of Didier Drogba screaming at the camera after refusing to accept defeat. Last night […]

You Couldn’t Make It Up!

March 3, 2011 by


The Premier League season so far has been remarkably unpredictable. With 10 games to go, only 6 points separate 10th to 20th place in the league. You would be hard pushed to predict the relegated trio come May. West Ham who have looked woeful all season are finally starting to play, smashing 5 past Burnley in the […]

Bad Weekend for the Czechs (and Torres)

February 6, 2011 by


Tomas Rosicky and Petr Cech had absolute stinkers this weekend. The Arsenal midfielder probably thought he wouldn’t see much action on Saturday, named on the bench, but was introduced on 70 minutes. Arsenal were still leading 4-1 at the time at St James Park. A few minutes after coming on Tomas gave away possession in his own […]

Does this mean that the recession is finally over? No, of course it doesn’t. To coin a phrase from Richard Keys “The game has gone mad!”. We all knew that Fernando Torres was on his way to Chelsea, it was a case of how much? £50m seemed the asking price, so Chelsea duly obliged. As a […]

One Step Forward, Three Steps Back?

January 28, 2011 by


The marquee signing of Luis Suarez should be making me smile, yet being a fan of Liverpool FC is never straight forward. News had surfaced early this morning, that Liverpool had rebuffed Chelsea’s offer of £35m for Fernando Torres. On hearing that, I just shrugged it off.. “Ah, Torres isn’t leaving, we have new owners, […]

Roy and Torres shine

November 7, 2010 by


Liverpool took on Chelsea on the obligatory Sky Sports Super Sunday. The game before saw a shock in Arsenal rolling over for Newcastle to tickle their bellies and snatch a one nil win at the Emirates, a shock if ever I saw one. Maybe it was going to be a day of shocks? Liverpool were […]

The Joy of Six

August 23, 2010 by


Another weekend passes in the Premier League and another 6 goals for Chelsea, fantasy football indeed. Mind you, it does help when the opposition is as inept as Wigan – even Blackpool put four past them last weekend. Carlo Ancelotti is remaining grounded despite Chelsea smashing in 12 goals in the opening two matches  “It is impossible to […]
