Ron wiggles his hips and BOOM! Unlike so many speculative wonder strikes from distance, Ronaldinho’s goal at the Bridge required daring, cheek, pure instinct and vision – as Clive Tyldesley said, “You didn’t see it coming”. No other player could have scored it, and that’s why I love this goal. Shame about Barcelona’s sickly away […]
Athletic power v pure skill. Who ya got? Chelsea parked the bus at the Camp Nou and just about got away with it. Cue moans about negative football from the Barcelona camp. Fair enough, but there was no way Guus Hiddink was going to engage Barca in an open game of football. And 0-0 looks […]
Rumours abound that Roman Abramovich (pictured above, jumping off one of his yachts) lost a $500,000 yacht in a game of poker. Abramovich’s people have denied the rumour: “The story is absolutely, completely, entirely false,” said John Mann, a spokesman for Chelsea’s owner.
This is Chelsea’s new home kit for the 2009/10 season. It’s made by Adidas, it’s sponsored by Samsung, and it’s still blue (with white stockings) – in other words, it’s pretty damn similar to the kit Chelsea have been wearing this season.

Chelsea must break British transfer record to buy Robinho According to The Guardian, Real Madrid have told Robinho that he will be allowed to leave the Bernabeu, but only if Chelsea offer Â£32m for the Brazil international.

Who’s going where, and who’s not going anywhere… Baked-bean head Mikael Silvestre was reportedly undergoing a medical at Man City when he was informed that Arsene Wenger wished to sign him. ‘Silvestre immediately abandoned the medical and hurtled down the M1 to meet Gunners boss Wenger and discuss terms,’ The Sun claims. Hope he stuck […]
Old-new England captain John Terry looks like he has got a chance of competing in the Olympics even if a Great Britain side do not enter the football tournament. The Chelsea man’s post-Moscow penalty shootout trauma does make him look uncannily like a synchronised diver. For all his flaws on the field, we never thought JT could be accused of being a diver.
Chelsea’s Brazilian star goes over the top Online Videos by Veoh.com Seventy seconds into this clip, Deco makes his first ever tackle in the Premier League. It was the sort of reckless “over-the-top” challenge that earned several players a straight red card last season – but the Brazilian didn’t even see yellow! I don’t think […]

Special One prefers Stevie G to Lamps That’s right folks – when asked by the Daily Telegraph to choose his Fantasy Football XI, Jose Mourinho picked Stevie G in midfield ahead of Frank Lampard. Jose’s other favourite Englishman, John Terry, didn’t make the cut either. Mourinho did select two Chelsea players: Ricardo Carvalho and Michael […]

Nicolas Anelka fills his boots against sluggish Italians Some clownish goalkeeping by Milan’s giant Aussie, Zeljko Kalac, helped Chelsea rack up five goals against the Serie A team in Moscow at the weekend. Nicolas Anelka helped himself to four, with Frank Lampard also on the scoresheet. A great result for Chelsea’s self-confidence, but you can’t […]

Fergie thinks so…Â do you agree with him? Alex Ferguson thinks Chelsea have too many thirtysomethings to challenge his squad of young bucks this season. The Man Utd boss said of Big Phil Scolari’s team: “How can they accelerate beyond what they’ve done? I don’t see outstanding progress in a team that is in their 30s.” […]
