  • View From Stamford Bridge: New And Old Realities

    Five games have now been played this season but it’s funny how little has changed. Like last season, I’m instinctively looking at the dotted line around 4th place before casually looking up the table. Winning the title last season only became an actual target, in my mind, late in the day. At the start of last season, like this one, every Chelsea supporter knew the deal. Man Utd, Man City, Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and ourselves- 6 teams, 4-5 Champions League places. Nothing’s changed, all these clubs still spending big money and under big pressure in the expectation of getting one of those places. And still at least one will miss out from “Big Cup”, even with a Europa League win amongst that pool. ...

  • View From Stamford Bridge: Chelsea’s Transfer-Window Review

    I wondered which Chelsea the players would deliver after the Burnley crisis klaxon was blown. The 3-2 defeat had a lot of ills in it but these were compounded by headlines hungry for the first storyline of the season's soap opera. ...

This was a process that you had to be interested in especially when its consequences were so extraordinary ...

  • View From Stamford Bridge: Talk Of Wembley Hoodoos Is A Wilful Distraction

    Put the ball in the net more times than your opponent, football is a simple game but I don't always think it's just fools that complicate it. Football relies on the mind with all the brilliance, wackiness and sensitivity that comes from our feelings and thoughts. The psychology that makes a winger fool a defender, a defender execute a last ditch challenge or a manager scream and holler like a Saturday night drunk. The feeling from these events that then escapes onto the terraces and is the recycled back into the stadium through song and chant. And then the 24/7 cycle of discussion that then extends that passion from the pitch to the street. These are emotionally driven and what make football the world's game. ...

  • Chelsea Must Not Get Swept Up In Other People’s Drama

    Karl Marx once said “history repeats itself, first as tragedy and then as farce” but I don’t think he realised his quote would be pilfered for a discussion about the 2017/18 season. I’ve borrowed a bit of the former Soho resident’s thinking because of a seemingly endless problem with the analysis of English football. Progression into a world where I can watch the French, Italian, German and Spanish leagues all at the tap of my touchscreen phone is still not enough to stop history repeating. ...
