From The Opposition Corner…… Arsenal

Today, we face Arsenal in a mouthwatering lunch-time clash, with both teams still unbeaten in the league this season.

With the likes of Cazorla, Arteta, Podolski, and Ramsey in the team, they have the flair and fight to match Chelsea, although it is an area Chelsea will hope that the likes of Mata and Hazard can exploit, especially the latter, who has took the league by storm so far.

Arsenal kept it tight last year as the teams shared a scoreless draw, whilst the game at the Bridge was a 5-3 thriller, which unfortunately we came on the wrong end of. Although one shining light from that, is summer departure Robin Van Persie score a hat-trick in that game, but both Gervinho and Podolski seemed to have step into the role well so far.

FA Score Massive Own Goal Over Terry Incident

When it came to his retirement on Sunday evening, it definitely seems like Terry was jumping overboard before being pushed.

Despite being cleared in a court of law over the Ferdinand incident, the FA decided they were going to go ahead with pressing charges on the England captain, who won a massive 78 caps for the Three Lions between 2003 and 2012.

From The Opposition Corner….. Wolves

Its likely to be Chelsea ‘B’ vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers ‘B’ when the teams are announced at Stamford Bridge tonight, but don’t let that fool you into thinking Chelsea won’t be at the races.

New boys Marko Marin, Victor Moses, and Cesar Azpilicueta will hopefully get game-time, and it’s a chance to show the Chelsea faithful that the goals have not dried up in the team, despite just Ashley Cole scoring in the last 180 minutes of football.

Can Victor Moses be the game changer?

Victor Moses’ move from Wigan to Chelsea was seen as one of the stranger moves of the Summer Transfer Window, supposedly to be back up to the likes of Eden Hazard and Oscar who had already signed on at the club. However, considering his impact (albeit off the bench) so far this season, he could be one of Chelsea’s most dangerous weapons throughout the season.

Can Di Matteo Find The Midfield Balance?

Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Júnior (no idea why nobody calls him this) stole the headlines with his incredible introduction to the Chelsea faithful against Juventus, but I hope this doesn’t hide an underlying problem, why is there not enough quality central midfielders to support this obvious attacking flair?

While I disagree with the media’s insistence that Andre Villas Boas was forcing the likes of Frank Lampard out of the team, the need for rotation, considering Lampard’s advancing years, seems necessary

Remembering The Drog.

Tonight, we look back at one of the finest talents to ever grace the Stamford Bridge turf. After leaving the Bridge at the start of this season, we look back at 10 of his more memorable moments (not all of them good)! But now, its time for a new King of the Bridge.

10. Champions League 2009 vs Barcelona

Chelsea stood on the brink of knocking Barcelona out of the Champions League semi-final in 2009, but Andres Iniesta scored a priceless away goal that ended the Blues’ hopes for another year

Torres should take a long look in the mirror

Saturday was a frustrating day all around for Chelsea, after storming to three straight wins, the attack looked devoid of ideas, against a resilient QPR defence.

This was highlighted no more than by Mr.Torres, who after scoring in two games in a row, drew a blank, and was dominated all game by the impressive Ryan Nelson. Everyone had been irritated by the proceedings, but when Fernando Torres’ was substituted, his decision to storm off down the tunnel after 81 minutes was a poor spur of the moment decision, and one that he should regret and apologise for, quickly.

Terry falls victim again but Chelsea remain unbeaten.

As I sat down to watch a high-octane West London derby, I was expecting an exciting, end-to-end game, but yet again, the spotlight was taken for different reasons.

Despite captain John Terry being cleared of charges relating to a ‘racially aggrevated assault’ on Anton Ferdinand, the QPR centre-half decided yet again to try and grab the headlines, by refusing the handshake to both him and Ashley Cole in front of the TV cameras.
