Does Chelsea have a Frank Lampard problem?

After 10 games, one might think that Frank Lampard, the engine and inspiration behind most of Chelsea’s offensive production over the past 5 seasons, has run into a torrid patch of form.  This is mostly due to his low goal return – one in the Premiership and one in the […]

Ancelotti’s Honesty Is So Refreshing

Well, I had to check a couple of times that I’d read the paper right on Sunday morning such was the surprise that I viewed Carlo Ancelotti’s comments about Chelsea’s shock defeat at the D.W Stadium. Perhaps it was  the shock at playing at one of the worst named grounds […]

Diamonds Are Back In Fashion At Stamford Bridge

Carlo Ancelotti has certainly stamped his mark on Chelsea early in the season so far. A Community Shield victory, coupled with 3 Premiership wins on the bounce has seen Chelsea rise to the top end of the table. So far, so what then? Nothing surprising in that in itself, would […]

Is John Terry Really Going To Join Manchester City?

The rumours first started in January that Manchester City were interested in landing John Terry, but nothing seemed too concrete and I, perhaps along with a lot of people, just dismissed it as paper talk.  Why on earth would Terry leave the Blues to take a risk on Manchester City. […]

Chelsea Confirm Ancelotti As New Blues Boss

Well, the most unsurprising managerial appointment of the summer has thankfully been completed this morning, with Carlo Ancelotti taking over as the new manager of Chelsea on July 1st. It was no real surprise at all really and a couple of weeks ago, I posted my thoughts that Ancelotti was […]

Frank Lampard…Meet Carlo Ancelloti?

Before todays mixed signals coming from the Giussepi Mezza, we were 90% sure that Carlo Ancelotti was coming to Chelsea. However, there is still a strong possibility of this and we expect to find out this week.  Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani confirmed last week that the club will make a statement on […]

AC Milan’s Prodigal Son Returns

Serie A Talk readers have probably noticed the headline change but I’ve changed more than that. After some deliberation I trashed the first post on ‘Shevchenko’s Triumphant Return’ as Andriy hasn’t been triumphant since leaving Milan and it looked likely he wasn’t going to find an opening to return or showed […]

What's Rising

Raúl Eyes Retirement

After equalling Real Madrid legend Alfredo DiStefano this past weekend, Raúl is starting to focus on the eventual end of his career.  According to an interview with Spanish sports daily As, he said he believed he has “two or three years” left in his career. “Yes, every game it comes […]

The Bundesliga XI 2009

Goalkeeper Jaroslav Drobny (Hertha Berlin) Make no mistake about it, Berlin’s rise from bottom half side to title contenders was based on defense. They were a hard side to break down and on the off-chance that a team did, there was Drobny to get by. His performance against Bayern was […]

Don’t Be Fooled By The Damned United

Well this may come as some surprise, but a film about a manager that only had one season in the Premiership may not garner the most interest outside of the United Kingdom but Brian Clough is a legend in European football. Today sees the film version of David Peace’s tome […]
