  1. The Sun report today that AC Milan are keen to make Tiemoue Bakayoko’s loan deal from Chelsea permanent, for the fixed fee in the deal of £30m. Some Chelsea fans are keen to see Baka return to the club, given the transfer ban we could be facing this summer. That’s despite the disastrous time the […]View the full article
  2. Maurizio Sarri was strikingly reluctant to put Callum Hudson-Odoi into this Chelsea team, and we feel he’s like to try and dump him now he has a chance. The Italian coach could no longer resist the pressure from the fans and the media to give the kid some games, and he played so well that […]View the full article
  3. Chelsea take on Burnley at Stamford Bridge tonight, and after a hectic period of games, Maurizio Sarri has the chance to pick his favoured XI, with a 6 day gap before our next match. That means changes all over, but the question will be what happens at left back. Emerson has been the first choice […]View the full article
  4. Chelsea appear reluctant to let go of a loanee who has impressed at every opportunity this season – Reece James. James won our academy player of the year at the end of last season, ahead of now first-teamer Callum Hudson-Odoi. The natural next step for the Englishman was a loan stint away from the Bridge, […]View the full article
  5. Chelsea have been through such a busy patch, with games coming thick and fast in the midweeks, that even the impressively stubborn Maurizio Sarri has been forced into some serious changes. The XIs he’s picked in the league has varied game to game, and without knowing whether the coach is really putting the Europa League […]View the full article
  6. Emerson has finally had the run in the team that fans were crying out for all season, and he hasn’t really impressed. As we’ve seen in his year here, he can show flashes in games and do some things that Marcos Alonso can’t. But he can never really turn that into whole games of being […]View the full article
  7. Chelsea have the second leg of their Europa League quarter final against Slavia Prague tonight, but plenty of fans are looking at the other side of the draw and wondering who we might get in the final. We shouldn’t get ahead of ourselves however. We will play the winner of Benfica and Frankfurt, and those […]View the full article
  8. With Maurizio Sarri having undergone a “minor dental surgery”, according to reports in The Sun, Gianfranco Zola took yesterday’s press conference ahead of the game with Slavia Prague. The Chelsea legend has done this a few times before this season, usually when the pressers are coming thick and fast like they are now. As always, […]View the full article
  9. WhoScored were today linking Zenit St Petersburg with potentially making a move for Mateo Kovacic. That would mean them signing him permanently from Real Madrid once his loan at Chelsea ends. It’s an interesting prospect, given he’s divided opinions at Chelsea. Maurizio Sarri clearly likes him as a tidy, technical player, and he’s even used […]View the full article
  10. Nicolas Pepe is the man who Chelsea should sign to replace Eden Hazard this summer. He’s super fast, he’s a deadly finisher on the evidence of this season. He’s a dribbler who can attack space without the ball or defenders when he’s got it. With better teammates around him, there’s no limit to how impressive […]View the full article
  11. For a long time, Chelsea fans have been watching every one of Maurizio Sarri’s starting XIs hoping to see one (well, three) names on the team sheet: Callum Hudson-Odoi. Now, in games like the fixture against Slavia Prague tomorrow, many will be hoping that they don’t see the 18 year old’s name feature. Why? Because anyone who […]View the full article
  12. Gary Cahill has suddenly found himself frozen out at Chelsea this season, after years as a dependable regular. He arrived at the club with little fanfare, and it looks like he will go that way too, with West Ham the latest club to be linked with a move for the defender once his contract expires […]View the full article
  13. Aleksandr Golovin came very close to joining Chelsea last summer. The deal was so close that some journalists were reporting it as done. In the end, that turned out not to be the case, and in fact the Russia midfielder, fresh from starring at the World Cup, moved to Monaco. They have had a disastrous […]View the full article
  14. Mason Mount’s return to the Derby County team has sparked a massive revival for the Rams, who are shooting up the table after a rather tepid start to 2019. They’ve been banging them in recently, with Mason alone grabbing a hattrick against Bolton at the weekend. The turnaround has been noted by the Derby Telegraph, […]View the full article
  15. Watford coach Javi Gracia has been linked with the Chelsea job in the last few days, leading to plenty of idle speculation about what changes might be made should the Spanish coach take over at Stamford Bridge. Squawka posted the following piece which noted that Andreas Christensen has played far fewer minutes this season under […]View the full article
