Chelsea’s transfer business has been out of the top drawer, but I don’t think they will win the Premier League

That doesn’t mean I don’t think the season will be a successful one. I think it could well be one of the most exciting non-title winning seasons Chelsea have had in a long time. This season could be the precursor to Chelsea returning to being a major force in the league for a long time… Continue reading Chelsea’s transfer business has been out of the top drawer, but I don’t think they will win the Premier League

Frank Lampard has worked wonders at Chelsea this season. He is the man to lead the club into the future.

So Chelsea and Arsenal will go head-to-head for a third time in the F.A. Cup final. Frank Lampard and his players pulled off a masterclass to nullify the attacking threat of Manchester United and seize upon individual errors to take Frank Lampard to a first major final as a manager. One major complaint among Chelsea… Continue reading Frank Lampard has worked wonders at Chelsea this season. He is the man to lead the club into the future.

What will Chelsea need to do in the summer?

Well, the first thing to do from my perspective would be to not sack Frank Lampard. For a manager to not be able to make any signings during their first transfer window in charge, with the most important player leaving, having to rely rather heavily on players who were not proven at Premier League level,… Continue reading What will Chelsea need to do in the summer?

Lampard was never going to get who he wanted in January. The transfer focus needs to shift to the summer.

With only a day until the January transfer window closes, Chelsea’s lack of activity has a number of fans voicing their anger. Why did the club go to such lengths to get the ban they were saddled with overturned if they weren’t going to do any business in January? Lampard has also been very vocal… Continue reading Lampard was never going to get who he wanted in January. The transfer focus needs to shift to the summer.

What we learnt from Chelsea’s win over Burnley.

Chelsea's 3-0 win over Burnley on Saturday arrested their rather indifferent home form and gave Chelsea fans a great home performance to cheer for the first time in far too long. The weekend's win meant that Chelsea had completed the league double over Burnley for the first time since the 2009/10 season and finally beat… Continue reading What we learnt from Chelsea’s win over Burnley.

The honeymoon is over for Frank Lampard. The hard work begins now.

After Thursday’s general election results I would normally write something about it, but most everyone who reads this blog knows my opinion of Boris Johnson and of Britain's withdrawal from the EU, so I won't waste your or my time rehashing old pieces. And I promise not to write anything about The Rise of Skywalker… Continue reading The honeymoon is over for Frank Lampard. The hard work begins now.

How on earth do Chelsea fit all their players in?

I know I write about Chelsea a lot on this blog, but if you read the homepage it does say that Chelsea is one of my favourite things to discuss and write about, so do please indulge me.

For the first time in many seasons, there is real optimism at Chelsea.

What I mean by that is that for the first time, Chelsea fans feel that there is a genuine plan beyond the end of this season. That's been clear from the moment Frank Lampard was appointed as Head Coach. We knew that the transfer ban woud necessitate bringing some of the younger players through to… Continue reading For the first time in many seasons, there is real optimism at Chelsea.

Will Chelsea be comfortable enough to play the waiting game?

It's fair to say that Chelsea haven't quite found their feet under Frank Lampard's management yet, but there are some encouraging signs. Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham have taken the opportunity given to them and turned in some great early performances to really stake a claim for regular first team football. Mateo Kovacic and Jorginho… Continue reading Will Chelsea be comfortable enough to play the waiting game?

Chelsea really don’t need to worry.

Well, the first two games of the Premier League season have been played and Frank Lampard has a single point for his efforts. And while Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester City all have maximum points, I really don't think Chelsea have a huge amount to worry about. The results haven't been what was wanted but there… Continue reading Chelsea really don’t need to worry.
