Chelsea’s January transfer activity is startling to watch.

You would have to be an idiot to deny that Chelsea are spending an absurd amount of money on players at the moment. Especially for a January transfer window. And some pundits have labelled the recruitment approach as ‘scattergun’. I really don’t agree with that. From what is being reported, Chelsea had been scouting all… Continue reading Chelsea’s January transfer activity is startling to watch.

Chelsea need to play the longer game with Graham Potter.

Graham Potter is a good manager. Anyone who tries to tell you otherwise is talking nonsense. No one was talking about his shortcomings and not knowing what his best line-up is when he went nine games unbeaten from taking over. That run included two deeply impressive wins over AC Milan with a 5-0 aggregate score… Continue reading Chelsea need to play the longer game with Graham Potter.

Covid still matters and first impressons are good for Graham Potter.

Covid is still around people! Well after a wait of two-and-a-half years, it finally arrived. The dreaded c-word. No, not that one! Yep, I got Covid. Not the best experience of my life, I admit. Fortunately, I have been triple-jabbed, so the symptoms were extremely mild for me. My age may also have played a… Continue reading Covid still matters and first impressons are good for Graham Potter.

The Tuchel era is over at Chelsea. Something new begins.

It’s a wise thing to never become too attached to managers as a football fan. They are the ones with the biggest likelihood of losing their jobs. As has happened with Thomas Tuchel. I am sad to see him go. He had done so much for the club from the moment he took over. In… Continue reading The Tuchel era is over at Chelsea. Something new begins.

Since last Sunday, we have seen a lot of talk about the refereeing team’s performance in the Chelsea vs Tottenham game. Because the long and the short of it is this. At least one of the two Tottenham goals should not have stood. I have made my support of Chelsea Football Club no secret over… Continue reading VAR still isn’t perfected yet.

Don’t be too quick to judge Chelsea.

Pre-season is never the time to be trying to judge a football team. Teams have had troubled pre-seasons and gone on to achieve great success by the end of the campaign. And that is something that I think Chelsea fans need to keep in mind right now. This is a strange time for the club.… Continue reading Don’t be too quick to judge Chelsea.

Why I think Chelsea shouldn’t sign either Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar Jr.

As attractive as the idea may be. I think it is one the new owners at Chelsea should avoid. Yes, it would be a massive statement to sign either player, would attract headlines and open up all sorts of commercial opportunities, but I just don’t think it would work. For one thing, Cristiano Ronaldo is… Continue reading Why I think Chelsea shouldn’t sign either Cristiano Ronaldo or Neymar Jr.

Well, the transfer window is now open and one of the many storylines that will unfold across the next two months is just how much of a splash Chelsea are going to make this year. With new owners in place with access to major resources, all the talk has been that they are ready to… Continue reading Chelsea’s transfer strategy has to be spot on this year.

Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest managers in the history of football.

The modern football world may have moved past Jose Mourinho, but we simply wouldn’t be where we are today without him. Mourinho continued his unbeaten streak in European finals on Wednesday, claiming the inaugural Europa Conference League with Roma. It may not be the most prestigious trophy that Mourinho has competed for in his managerial… Continue reading Jose Mourinho is one of the greatest managers in the history of football.
