Who was Chelsea’s most improved player over the 2013-14 Premier League season?

Saturday afternoon sees the Blues make their shortest northerly trip to Loftus Road to face Harry Redknapp’s QPR. As QPR were in the Championship last season, our regular Beat Your Manager! column doesn’t have a lineup list from last season to talk about and instead has come up with a novel topic that last season’s stats can usefully answer. Beat Your Manager! Fantasy Football is a game similar to “Football (continued…)

Sunday afternoon sees the big matchup of the weekend, with Manchester United taking on Chelsea at Old Trafford and Juan Mata lining up against his old Chelsea team-mates.

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

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…)
