Frank Lampard Still Important For Chelsea
Frank Lampard Still Important For Chelsea

  Even after many years as a football fan, the sensationalism of the English media is still surprising. Although at times frustrating, I guess it’s good that football gets most of its breathtaking drama from how the media constructs the narrative of the season. For the past two weeks, the […]

Man United 3-1 Chelsea: A Closely Fought Game, Despite The Scoreline
Man United 3-1 Chelsea: A Closely Fought Game, Despite The Scoreline

So this is what the English Premier League is all about: fantastic goals, shocking tackles, even more shocking misses, incredible speed, electric atmosphere and pure headline drama. Even as a supporter of the losing team, this was the most excitement I’ve had watching a Manchester United-Chelsea match since Moscow 2008 […]

Fernando Torres’s Poor Form Is A Sign Of Other Problems at Chelsea
Fernando Torres’s Poor Form Is A Sign Of Other Problems at Chelsea

Fernando Torres has undoubtedly hit the nadir of his career. This week, he was dropped all together from Spain’s 18-man squad and was subsequently demoted to the bench for Chelsea’s Premier League match against Sunderland. He also appeared to lose his cool for the first time in an interview when […]

Why Luka Modric is a Perfect Fit For Chelsea
Why Luka Modric is a Perfect Fit For Chelsea

Last summer was very different for Chelsea Football Club. The club had just won the double and Carlo Ancelotti appeared to be the man who would finally deliver stability to Abramovich’s era. I remember posing with “The Double” mural outside Stamford Bridge, my face full of joy. Ah, the good […]

Are You Excited For The FA Cup Final?
Are You Excited For The FA Cup Final?

For the second time in four years, we are presented with an FA Cup devoid of a big four team (you can thank Yaya Toure for that, or perhaps Michael Carrick). Let me preempt any comments about a “new big four” by saying that I’m going to oblige King Kenny’s […]

The First Title Clash: Chelsea vs. Liverpool

On Sunday at 11:00 AM, the Premier League will be treated to its first significant title clash when Liverpool take on Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Indulge me while I set the scene for the match. Chelsea and Liverpool have met 4 times or more for the past five years and […]

The Tale of Two Chelseas
The Tale of Two Chelseas

That is, one with Didier Drogba and one without Didier Drogba. I, like many others have stated before, have always had this sort-of idea that Chelsea were a completely different team when Drogba wasn’t playing. During tonight’s match versus Porto, this idea culminated into a thesis that was entirely tangible […]

Transfer Ban for United?
Transfer Ban for United?

It seems like this is all coming out of nowhere. Any fan of the game knows that the “tapping-up” allegations have always been prominent but rarely has it been so harshly punished. From United’s perspective, they were accused of tapping up Dimitar Berbatov and Wayne Rooney in the recent past […]

UEFA, You’ve Lost Your Touch

“Giggs looking to pick out Rooney… who’s got there, is that a penalty kick?! What does Mike Dean say?! He says penalty!” This whole routine is getting a little old, isn’t it? Screw diamonds, refereeing mistakes are forever. It’s like the referees all convene and decide whose turn it is […]
