  1. Chelsea went into yesterday’s game against Newcastle knowing that winning was extremely important. They now face a punishing run of fixtures that will see them face many of their rivals for the top 4, and they had a final chance to pick up points against a weaker side before the tough stretch. They failed to get anything […]View the full article
  2. Chelsea fans woke up with a major headache yesterday morning, as a result of their team going down to a late Newcastle winner in Saturday evening’s Premier League match up. Blues boss Frank Lampard, the coaching team, and the players will be suffering similar aches as they totally threw away a game that looked a […]View the full article
  3. Olivier Giroud’s departure to Inter Milan is all but agreed, with Frank Lampard not even denying in his press conference ahead of this week’s game with Newcastle that there were discussions taking place to move the striker on. It’s a move that makes sense, on the surface at least. Giroud isn’t playing, at all, not […]View the full article
  4. There has been very little to be critical of Frank Lampard for in terms of team selection this season. He’s played young players, changed things up when necessary and worked injured stars back into the side slowly. Generally it’s been impressive how quickly his vision of the club lined up with that of the fans […]View the full article
  5. John Terry, Chelsea’s best ever player in the clubs history and greatest ever captain, accepted 1-year contract extensions at the club once he reached 30, because that was the club’s policy. David Luiz, the journeyman player who left Chelsea and then returned, got granted a 2-year contract extension, breaking the clubs own policy. Then, he […] View the full article
  6. Sky Sports’ “Transfer Talk” podcast is becoming a valuable source of information for fans, even when their club isn’t the one in focus that day. Their episode today focuses on Manchester United and Tottenham, but towards the end they give an update on Chelsea’s situation. Self-proclaimed “Transfer Expert” Ian McGarry says that Chelsea are still […]View the full article
  7. We’re more than halfway through the season now, and one can really start to look at team statistics and draw some reasonable conclusions about the styles they play, and who is over and under-performing. The most simple stats are often the most useful, and they are certainly the clearest. Looking just at home many shots […]View the full article
  8. Chelsea managed to beat Burnley at home today, ending a bad run of home games where they have really struggled to pick up points against smaller sides. Burnley were well beaten in the end, but it was a real uphill struggle. Chelsea were pretty dire in the first half, and the second period saw Burnley […]View the full article
  9. It’s been coming, we’re just surprised it took this long for this particular connection to be made. Thomas Lemar’s time at Atletico Madrid is coming to an end, and the Spanish club are winding up the hype machine to try and find a taker for the winger. It’s not a shock then, to see the […]View the full article
  10. We’re a week into January now, and the sports pages are brimming with transfer news, especially regarding Chelsea’s potential activity this month. The fact that we were unable to sign anyone this summer, combined with the obvious gaps in our squad and Frank Lampard’s strong hints that he wants additions sooner rather than later, is […]View the full article
  11. I’ll start this by saying – I know Callum Hudson-Odoi is more comfortable and probably a better fit playing on the left wing and cutting inside. However, yesterday gave us another element to his game, and another option that Chelsea can use in what has been a problematic area for some years. Willian has been […]View the full article
  12. There is no doubt that Frank Lampard needs to sign attackers, especially if some of them leave this window as is reported. But for me, there is a much more important area that needs one major addition and that is at centre back. Lampard has spent the season so far floating between his four centre […]View the full article
  13. Chelsea’s run of poor results towards the end of 2019 had a number of causes. The young players that make up the bulk of Frank Lampard’s squad appeared to lose the energy that made them such a threat earlier in the summer, and as they slowed down they lost the ability to break teams down. […]View the full article
  14. Chelsea lined up to face Brighton today with Cesar Azpilicueta playing at left back and Reece James returning to the team on the right. This isn’t the first time Frank Lampard has used this combination, and he’s shown willing to play Azpilicueta on the left whenever it proves advantageous during games, including against Arsenal last […]View the full article
  15. Tomorrow see’s the turn of a new year, and more importantly the turn of a new decade. Chelsea will start the new decade away at Brighton tomorrow, and to show how much things have changed, Frank Lampard started the last decade as a key Chelsea player, now he is leading them as a manager in […]View the full article
