Chelsea Title Challenge Continues To Cool With Draw Against Newcastle

The problems at Chelsea continue to mount as a draw in the North East allowed Manchester United to overhaul the champions at the top of the table for the first time this season.

With an important month in the title race about to begin injuries, backroom drama and poor performances have left confidence shattered at a club that has only collected four points from a possible fifteen.

Ballacks Pain Of Missing The World Cup

  You have to feel for a player of the calibre of Michael Ballack and for fans of Germany. Things haven’t always gone swimmingly for Ballack at Stamford Bridge since he joined in 2006, but there is no doubt he is Germany’s most accomplished player of his generation. Be it […]

Chelsea Should Sign Bastian Schweinsteiger This Summer

With another FA Cup final, three games remaining on the Premier League fixture list and one point between Chelsea and second placed Manchester United, it may be a little premature for the Blue’s management and players to think about summer transfers.  Mercifully, as pundits and fans, we do not have […]

Ballack Symbolizes All of Chelsea's Troubles

Michael Ballack’s Saturday performance has been heretofore overshadowed by the traumatic injury suffered by Aaron Ramsey, but while there has been a debate as to the fairness of Ryan Shawcross’s tackle on the Welsh protégé, there can be no doubt about Ballack’s embarrassing attack on Carlos Tévez. The score was […]

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 […]

Chelsea’s Punishment Shows UEFA Is Toothless

Now I’m certainly not going to start defending Chelsea’s players or the reactions of certain fans after the final whistle back on May 6th. Yes, the referee had a nightmare, yes Chelsea should have had two penalties at least and yes to some people it was easy to understand the […]

Chelsea’s UEFA Conspiracy Claims Are Laughable

With their typical class, Chelsea players and staff asserted their belief, following their 1-1 agg defeat to Barcelona, that UEFA conspired against them to prevent an all-English final in the Champions League. Players, such as Didier Drogba, displayed their sentiment by all but physically assaulting the referee as he left […]

Fabregas and Horton Prepare For Round Two

So, the FA have finally come out and asked Arsenal to respond within 7 days to Hull City and their Assistant Manger, Brian Horton’s, accusations that Cesc Fabregas spat at him in the tunnel. I’m amazed on several fronts, firstly the FA have managed to start an enquiry in the […]

Chelsea Players Star In New Adidas Video

Chelsea players Frank Lampard and Michael Ballack star in a new viral video from Adidas to promote the brand’s new range of football boots. Rather than playing like an advertisement, Adidas has done a decent job putting a story together of football fans who descend on Chelsea’s Cobham training ground […]

Scolari Is God, Benitez Is The Devil

It’s so rare these days that a football manager says anything new or remotely intelligent other than the rehearsed lines he memorizes from media training. Other than Joe Kinnear, of course. But Chelsea manager Luiz Felipe Scolari said so many refreshing things on Friday that I felt compelled to write […]

New Years Eve Odds and Sods

Berbatov pads stats Against weaker opponents Bad news for Reading West Ham shocked Manchester United 2-1 at Upton Park.  It was West Ham’s third consecutive victory over United in the League.  The result was a bit unfair to Man U, who controlled much of the match.  They had a chance […]

Return of the Setanta Puppets

In the latest episode of “I’m On Setanta Sports,” Wayne speaks, Arsene and Jose get into a spat, Sven plays guitar and didgeridoo, and Rooney gives us the word of the day. I don’t know about you, but I’m still enjoying each episode. They’ve made Jose Mourinho more popular than […]

Villa Ups With Valencia

Villa Ups Contract With Valencia by Juan Arango for Mad About Fútbol    August 27, 2008 Spanish international David Villa signed an extension with Valencia that will have him under contract with the club until 2014.   This thwarted any chance of Real Madrid obtaining him for the €40 million that […]

Worst Premier League Team of the 2012-13 Season So Far

Since we’re almost halfway through the 2012-13 Premier League season, I wanted to share my worst Premier League team for the season thus far. While there have been some incredible footballers this season, there have also been a lot of very mediocre performances. This was a lot harder to put […]
