Well, I am not sure that Antonio Conte was ever the right pick for Tottenham. Spurs are a club who make a big deal out of playing football that is exciting to watch, that has flair and passion at it’s heart, that takes risks. Well, that is not who Antonio Conte is as a manager… Continue reading Will Conte be Tottenham manager for much longer?
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.
Should the January transfer window still be a thing?
The January transfer market can often be a time of intense activity as teams look to fine-tune their squads for the remainder of the season. It can also look on the outside like clubs are panicking and frantically trying to reinforce an underperforming squad to improve results. But, every now and then the question is… Continue reading Should the January transfer window still be a thing?

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.
I’m not excited about the World Cup.
Well, the England squad for the World Cup has been announced. I’m not surprised by Gareth Southgate’s selections. I’m also really not bothered. I’m just not excited for this World Cup at all.

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.
