Chelsea’s Summer Transactions (by Gary Watton)

CHELSEA’S SUMMER TRANSACTIONS Here is a reminder of the revolving door of the last few months in which various players have arrived and others have departed from Stamford Bridge. Someone stated on social media almost smugly in mid-summer that Chelsea’s policy was merely to replace any departed players. It was apparent to me at least […]

Falcao? Good Grief. Seriously?

FALCAO? GOOD GRIEF. SERIOUSLY? Excuse me if I don’t dance with delight at the latest weird piece of business conducted by Mourinho and Chelsea Football Club. Hot on the heels of our charitable donation to Arsenic of one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the Premiership, we now proceed to take on a […]

Demba Departs, Filipe Joins, Schurrle Shines [by Gary Watton]

Demba Departs, Filipe Joins, Schurrle Shines I guess that I should spew out some reaction to Chelsea’s involvement, so to speak, in the recent World Cup shindig, and also comment on recent comings and goings at Stamford Bridge.

Every manager at Chelsea is an interim appointment as far as trigger-happy Abramovich is […]

In The Clear Light Of Day ……

…… after the dust has settled …… Ouch! bloody hell that was embarrassing. On a Rotten Tomatoes scale I’d give it a full 10/10. On the odd occasion you get a player going missing in a game, even the best do it. Sometimes you can be very unlucky that 2 players go missing and put […]

Hiddink Return To Chelsea? – Will He Or Won’t He?

So, a month on and still no one to replace Carlo Ancelotti as Chelsea manager. The ‘closed season’ always turns out to be one of speculation, disappointment and sometimes, excitement when we either sign players or lose them to our rivals, but, in most cases we have a manager in charge to advise Roman on […]
