Cech proves yet again why he’s Chelsea’s Number One!

After 120 minutes of drama in Prague on Friday, the European Super Cup eventually ended in agonising defeat, but in the fullness of time the result will be more of an irritant than anything else and so should not be of much concern. The Cup, ultimately, means very little; it is the European version of

Why Chelsea should NOT be after Ruddy from Norwich

The Guardian are reporting that Chelsea are ready to make a second offer for Norwich keeper John Ruddy after The Canaries turned down our initial bid worth a total of £5 million pounds. Ruddy, 26, is being sought as no. 2 to Petr Cech after the departures of Ross Turnbull and Hilario at the end

Whose place is guaranteed in Chelsea’s First XI next season?

There is so much speculation over how Jose Mourinho is going to line up this Chelsea team, and much of it is guesswork. However, with our pre-season games still a bit away, I thought I would have a look at the team and try and work out who would Mourinho see as absolutely nailed on

Are Chelsea taking a risk allowing Thibaut Courtois to stay at Atletico Madrid?

Following the release of back-up goalkeepers Ross Turnbull and Henrique Hilario, there were rumours that Jose Mourinho might look to keep Belgian starlet Thibaut Courtois in London as second choice keeper behind Petr Cech. However, it seems that short-term reliability has been sacrificed for long-term gain, and Courtois has been allowed to return to Atletico

Petr Cech – Chelsea players need to relax between crucial games

Petr Cech was very disappointed to concede the equalising goal to Liverpool on Sunday, especially as we were leading until the 97th minute, but he says that now the Chelsea players need to relieve the ongoing pressure ahead of every game by taking a relaxing break in between matches. Cech said: “‘We are in a

Chelsea spank Fulham to go favourites for top four (with highlights)

Because Chelsea were playing their third big game in six days and the fact that it was a local derby against Fulham, it was expected to be a tough test for Rafa Benitez and the Blues at Craven Cottage last night. It turned out to be anything but, as we eased to a 3-0 win

Cech rubbishes rumour of transfer from Chelsea to Arsenal

The story that hit the papers this week about Chelsea possibly listening to offers for the Czech international keeper Petr Cech always seemed hard to believe. Arsenal were reportedly interested and have been keeping an eye on the situation with Courtois at Atletice, but Cech has spoken about the story and it is clear that

Should Chelsea let Courtois stay with Atletico?

Chelsea have a fantastic keeper in Petr Cech, and the Czech international does not miss many games. 30 years old is not much for a keeper either, so the decision to let Thibaut Courtois go out on loan has made perfect sense. The young Belgian keeper has gained valuable experience playing for Atletico Madrid, and

Poor performance and soft Penalty spell defeat for Chelsea in Europa League

There is no getting around the fact that Chelsea were well below par against Steaua Bucharest in Romania last night. Having said that, the home team needed the help of a generous refereeing decision to give them the win. The result was disappointing, but it was only 1-0, and Chelsea should easily be able to

Cech wants Mourinho back at Chelsea

Chelsea will definitely have a new manager next season. Rafa Benitez even admitted as much in his much publicisedrant last week. The fact that his job title was interim manager was a bit of a clue as well. The question is, who will it be. Earlier in the season it was widely thought that Roman
