Chelsea set to really annoy West Brom by targeting Berahino

I think it is safe to say that Chelsea Football Club, and especially the manager Jose Mourinho, are not too well liked by West Brom and their fans at the minute. Denied a historic win at Stamford Bridge by an admittedly fortunate penalty decision by the referee last week, the Baggies were already fuming when

Lukaku ready to come of age at Chelsea next season

There is a reason why players like John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba are rightly considered Chelsea legends, and it’s not solely because of their performances on the pitch. During their time at the club, these players have always expressed their love for the club and their absolute desire to succeed and prosper at

Mourinho’s coming to Chelsea…and Lukaku wants to join him!

Real Madrid and Jose Mourinho have agreed to part company by mutual consent. Real president Florentino Perez made the announcement this evening at a press conference to hordes of completely unsurprised journalists in Madrid. Contrary to reports that he would be officially sacked, Perez has confirmed that the split was a mutual decision. “We’ve decided

West Brom confident of Romelu Lukaku’s return on second season long loan

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke is confident of capturing Romelu Lukaku on a second season-long loan. Lukaku has been in stand-out form for West Brom this season, finding the back of the net 13 times so far this campaign, and has recently come into interest from Swansea City, who are rumoured to be looking

Rafa may have uneasy truce with Chelsea fans

After Chelsea beat Middlesborough in midweek, and Rafa Benitez launched into his tirade about the Chelsea fans’ continuing protests about his management, the media turned up at Stamford Bridge yesterday like vultures hoping for a corpse to feed on, but you could sense their disappointment, especially as the soccer betting was predicting that the Spaniard

West Brom want to keep Chelsea loanee another season

It is fair to say that Chelsea have been missing Didier Drogba this season. Fernando Torres has been better for the Blues this year, scoring 15 goals in all competitions so far, and Demba Ba has added some physical presence up front since signing from Newcastle in January, but has only scored once in his

Chelsea dragged into fight with Arsenal and Tottenham

It was the worst possible result for Chelsea against Manchester City yesterday, as it put Roberto Mancini’s men seven points ahead in second place. The worry now for Chelsea is that Arsenal are just two points behind in fifth place, while Tottenham are just one point behind and play their game in hand away to

Rafa on Chelsea’s Lukaku: it “may be best for him to stay” at West Brom for now

Rafa Benitez has all but confirmed Romelu Lukaku will stay at the Hawthorns until the end of the season. Romelu Lukaku has been in fine form for West Brom, scoring 5 goals in his 12 Premier League appearances this season, most of which he started on the bench. That is one more goal than Torres

Should Chelsea have left Lukaku in Belgium last season?

Romelu Lukaku arrived at Chelsea last summer with a big reputation as a prolific goalscorer with Anderlecht at just 18 years of age, but since his arrival for a massive £18 million he has languished in the reserves. With Drogba, Torres, Anelka and Stuuridge at the club last season, Lukaku was hardly going to get

West Brom join race for Daniel Sturridge

After his fantastic loan period at Bolton at the end of last season, Daniel Sturridge is certainly in demand this summer. Stoke City made a (useless) £6m bid for the 21 year-old hitman and Newcastle have been linked as well, but I would have thought that a return to Bolton would have been the best
