Loss against Spurs could spark a revival

26 Nov 2018 | Posted by: admin | Categories: news

Chelsea played on/ e of their worst matches under Sarri when they faced arch rivals Spurs at Wembley on Saturday losing 3-1. If we won the match it would have been 12 games unbeaten under Sarri, sadly it was not to be. The warning signs have been there for a while, and Everton showed every other team playing against us, that if you prevent Jorginho from playing Chelsea would be ripe for the picking.

On Saturday, it came to fruition and the tide could not be stopped (barring if the referee pitched up for the match) as he missed two blatant penalties for Hazard. With Jorginho under pressure, Chelsea looked ordinary. It has been clear for a while, we need Kante in his favoured position – the Makalele position with Jorginho in a little more advanced position. Judging from the fans backlash here and abroad, it looked like we have lost every game this season and the anger and abuse was long overdue/ Football under any new manager will take time. Learning Sarri’s methods will take time and like Pep’s first season in the Premier – he lost several games before his team could play his kind of game.

It’s Europa League on Thursday at the Bridge and we can put the Spurs loss behind us. A top four in the league is still on and finishing higher than 3rd at this moment would be bonus. Remember Conte’s first season in charge when we loss 3-0 to Arsenal. Anything is still possible.

Should Kante play his old position? Should Giroud start or should Odoi play in the striker role? Should Barkley start the big matches? Should we use Moses on the right flank/wing again? Let us know…rumour has it Fabregas, Christensen and Cahill might leave for AC Milan in the January window – what do you think? Share your thoughts with us.

Former Captain John Terry retires from club football

13 Oct 2018 | Posted by: admin | Categories: news

John Terry finally retired from competitive football this week as he thanked his family, coaches, teammates, and fans for their support over the last two decades. He was truly one of us…we shall miss him on the field, our captain fantastic.

terry farewell

 

 

John Terry will be remembered for his bravery on and off the field. As a captain, a fearless defender alongside so many greats at Chelsea, he was perhaps the greatest of them all. His awareness of danger in his own penalty box was unparalleled where he put his body (and head) on the line. Who can forget the cup final against Arsenal when he was knocked out cold for a few minutes, yet he first made sure the ball never went in his goal. And his love for scoring goals in the opposite end. He had a knack for scoring goals from set pieces. He was a fierce competitor, a leader, a giant and someone the team could depend on.  From winning 15 titles in 22 years to slipping and failing to score in a penalty shoot-out in the 2008 Champions League final against Man Utd in Moscow to lifting the same trophy alongside Frankie Lampard four years later against Bayern Munich in 2012.

He led our beloved Chelsea to five Premier League titles, five FA Cups, three League Cups, and both the Champions League and Europa League. During this time he played 78 times for England and 34 of those as the captain during a nine-year spell. He has played for Aston Villa in the English Championship during the 2017/2018 season and is now also their newly appointed assistant Manager.
