What happens next for Chelsea?

Chelsea will have another chance at silverware this year, after reaching their third successive F.A Cup final in a row. It’s a strange time for everyone involved with the club right now; players, staff and fans. The restrictions of the licence the club is currently operating under mean that player contracts cannot be renewed. New… Continue reading What happens next for Chelsea?

Mercedes are far off the pace so far. Is their F1 domination officially over?

Suffice to say, it has not been the best start to the new era of Formula One for the Mercedes team that has dominated the sport since 2014. The opening three races have seen the usual suspects sharing out the podium positions among themselves. But while Ferrari and Red Bull have both taken wins with… Continue reading Mercedes are far off the pace so far. Is their F1 domination officially over?

Some thoughts on Chelsea’s situation.

This is certainly a difficult time for Chelsea Football Club. The owner sanctioned, the club restricted in how it can operate, desperately looking for a new owner. And while more than 30 parties have apparently made a bid to buy the club, fans will worry over the suitability of anyone coming in. Will they simply… Continue reading Some thoughts on Chelsea’s situation.

Do we have a title race on again?

Maybe. It will be a two-horse race once again, but it’s a far cry from where we were two weeks ago. Chelsea are out of this now; there’s no way they can overturn a 13 point gap to Manchester City. I think it’s unlikely that they will overturn the seven-point gap between themselves and Liverpool.… Continue reading Do we have a title race on again?

Some thoughts on the Club World Cup.

While some pundits like Craig Burley may sneer at it, Chelsea completed the set on Saturday. And like many fans, I was very happy with that achievement. Having failed to win it the previous time the club were involved in the competition, everyone in and around the club really seemed to be taking the Club… Continue reading Some thoughts on the Club World Cup.

Does it matter that Chelsea didn’t sign anyone in January?

So, it’s been a few days since the January transfer window closed and Chelsea had a very, very quiet window. It consisted of the usual group of youth team players going on loan, one leaving permanently and one player returning to the first team squad to provide cover. There were no big-name arrivals or departures.… Continue reading Does it matter that Chelsea didn’t sign anyone in January?

The gap between City and the chasing pack is widening, and the fallout from Lukaku’s interview is going to be quite a mess to clean up.

As entertaining as Sunday’s game was, it has now opened up a gap between Manchester City and Chelsea and Liverpool that the two chasing teams will not be able to claw back. Both sides showed great quality, especially in the attacking third, and Chelsea mounted a great comeback to go in at half time level… Continue reading The gap between City and the chasing pack is widening, and the fallout from Lukaku’s interview is going to be quite a mess to clean up.

The Premier League: What’s going wrong this time?

Omicron surge puts Premier League in dangerous territory The Premier League seems like it will continue for now. And I don’t think that is the right decision. While the Omicron variant starts to take over from Delta for the general public, cases are starting to rise again for football clubs as well. Over half of… Continue reading The Premier League: What’s going wrong this time?

Please don’t crash into each other!!

While this Formula One season has been immensely watchable, last week’s Saudi Arabian Grand Prix highlighted something else that has been brewing all season. And that is Max Verstappen’s driving standards. Be in no doubt, Max Verstappen is an immensely talented driver who is rightly at one of the best teams in the sports and… Continue reading Please don’t crash into each other!!
