So Chelsea look like they are going to go for Mauricio Pochettino as the next permanent manager. Given that results really haven’t picked up under Frank Lampard, there was never a real chance that Frank would be returning on a permanent basis. And I wouldn’t have put him in place as permanent manager anyway. Not… Continue reading Mauricio Pochettino could be exactly who Chelsea are looking for.
Frank’s back for now, but Chelsea need to get their next move right.
Well, I did not expect to see Frank Lampard back at the helm at Chelsea so soon, even if it is only until the end of the season. I said at the time that Lampard was sacked that I hoped he would return someday, and be able to make a material success of the job.… Continue reading Frank’s back for now, but Chelsea need to get their next move right.
Do Chelsea fans want Mourinho back?
Well, from what I have seen and what I feel about the subject; no, not really. Jose Mourinho is one of the most important figures in Chelsea history. Across his two spells in charge of the team, he won six trophies, and helped assemble a group of players that would write their own names in… Continue reading Do Chelsea fans want Mourinho back?
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.
Yay!! The Premier League is back!!
It is now less than a week until the Premier League makes it return and I cannot wait. The World Cup was entertaining as a spectacle and the final was truly one for the ages. A truly wonderful game of football that saw possibly the greatest player ever to play the game finally secure the… Continue reading Yay!! The Premier League is back!!
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.
VAR still isn’t perfected yet.
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.
