Need to get something off your chest? Perhaps you’re tired of reading the journos and what they think of our beloved CFC. Here are some Chelsea that have a LOT to say*, about, well, the Chelsea!

  • luiz Season in Review: Pt. 1 – Welcome to the New Age? (5/28/2014)
    Ben Mehlan here again!  Through a few technical difficulties, a busier time than expected, and a lack of motivation to go with it, I found myself only writing one article upon becoming a new writer for the site.  But rest assured, I am back for real – and starting off with a four-part season in review.  Here’s part one! ———————- As we sat down at our TV’s (or more likely (continued...)
  • Scheduled loss? (11/3/2013)
    Oliver Kay posted something on Twitter today that got me thinking… he wrote, “@OliverKayTimes: Only caught final half-hour of Newcastle 2 Chelsea 0. Best I’ve seen #nufc look for a long time. Familiar November performance from #CFC.” Immediately, I was reminded of a very specific match from a few years back.  During the Holiday season, I was able to sneak out of work a little early, pour a stiff drink (continued...)
  • Lukaku’s Loan and the Road to Brazil (9/5/2013)
    Again? As Transfer Deadline Day drew toward its always ridiculous conclusion, the news of Romelu Lukaku going on loan gained steam.  As I read the news, I just kept thinking, “we’re sending him out again?” When it became officially official (a tough standard in the world of BPL news) I knew I wanted write about the loan, but I wasn’t sure how I wanted to approach it.  Like most Blues, (continued...)
  • Our Geezer (9/1/2013)
    “Sometimes we need to lose, to win in the future! You are fantastic my friend @romelulukaku9 !” -David Luiz There was a constant theme running throughout this summer’s silly season and I didn’t know how I felt about it.  Nearly every day, I would check my Twitter feed (@MrBrendan23) to get the latest rumor about our squad.  I would go on Star, Mirror, Fox Soccer, and ESPN to see if (continued...)
  • So, Rooney? (8/27/2013)
    So, Rooney? Man he was good yesterday.  I mean really, really, good.  Even as a True Blue supporter, I can say without hesitation that he was the best player on the pitch last night.  Sure, I liked what I saw from Chelsea’s back four, and, in particular, Ashley Cole was quite good at both ends.  But, from the bench I sat on at the Pizza/Grub shop, the player who jumped (continued...)
  • The No. 1 Problem (8/23/2013)
    This column was supposed to be about Čech.  It really was. After watching our beloved Blues hang on to beat AVFC on Wednesday, it was obvious the Čech was the clear difference in securing 3 points.  He was magnificent.  I wanted to fill these pages with a simple thesis, “Courtois is good, but we need Čech to be elite.”  I was going write about his saves, his positioning, his composure, and all the (continued...)
  • Oscar An appreciation of Oscar (8/20/2013)
    Last summer, I spent an inordinate amount of time Googling “Oscar” in an attempt to learn about the player Chelsea was going to sign.  Sadly, with a common name, it always took longer than Drogba (who comes up within a few key strokes) and his birth year (1991) became key to finding him.  After enough clicks, I learned his full name was Oscar dos Santos Emboaba Júnior and was able to (continued...)
  • The Road to Happiness….My CFC Journey (7/23/2013)
    My story of becoming a Chelsea supporter is not an exciting one. I wasn’t raised on football, I am not a legacy, but I can honestly say I am blue through and through. Growing up I enjoyed watching sports and going to live sporting events. I played “footy” in high school, but to say I was a professional football fan would not be an accurate statement. 2 years ago my (continued...)
  • Screen shot 2013-07-23 at 12.40.09 PM What Do You Want? Really? (7/23/2013)
    A quick hello to all of you readers!  I am Ben Mehlan, a new writer for the site out of central Illinois.  I am 23 years old, and a current business administration student, focusing in on sports management.  I have the slightest of connections in the footballing world with staff at Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City, and Bolton, thanks to a conference trip I took to England in April.  A devout (continued...)
  • conor hunte The Departure of Connor Hunte (7/12/2013)
    So when Chelsea announced that they had released 16 year old starlet Connor Hunte, I was left in a state of confusion and disappointment.  Hunte had been slated as being one of the most promising youngsters to come through our academy and ranks, and had even helped our NextGen Series team last year in making the final.  So why had the club parted ways with such a talent, and where (continued...)
  • Marko-Marin MARKO MARIN ON SEASON LONG LOAN TO SEVILLA (6/28/2013)
    Chelsea and Sevilla have reached an agreement for the season long loan of Marko Marin.  Marin, who featured a total of 16 times for Chelsea last season, had trouble breaking into regular action after suffering a hamstring injury.  With Andre Schurrle’s arrival at Stamford Bridge, Marin’s departure was imminent with most thinking he would be sold off rather than loaned.  The former Werder Bremen midfielder will likely get a fresh (continued...)
  • CFC. Believe. I Believe…Do You? (2/5/2013)
    Sometimes all it takes to be a Blue is a bit of patience, passion, and understanding of where your club has been in order to appreciate where it’s headed.  Sure we’ve had what you would call a season of successful turmoil. How can those two words be used in a synonymous way you ask?  As it is in many aspects of life, the disappointments in life can only lead to greatness.  They (continued...)
  • chelsea-v-newcastle-mb Troubling Times for Chelsea as We Take on the Toon (2/1/2013)
    These certainly have been hard times for Chelsea lately. We’ve suffered more than a few losses and draws since the “tactical genius” of the Fat Spanish Waiter took over our beloved club.  We have seen Chelsea completely not show up to these matches and also capitulate to lesser opposition late in games. Tomorrow Chelsea travels to Newcastle to play a match that in my opinion could define the rest of (continued...)
  • cahill_luiz Chelsea CBs – Which is the best pair? (1/21/2013)
    Chelsea have had an array of injuries at the CB position this season and have fielded SIX (yes, six) central defender pairings this season. So how has the team fared with the different pairings?   Cahill + Luiz Cahill + Terry Luiz + Ivanovic Luiz + Terry Ivanovic + Terry Ivanovic + Cahill Games 16 2 4 6 1 8 Goal Difference 11 8 8 5 0 10 Goal Diff (continued...)
