Chelsea Players comparison to Euro Leagues

Ever wonder if the Premier League is as good as it is popular? In another special article contribution below, you’ll find that Hazard and Fabregas on top of Europe in their respective positions and how Italy’s Serie A has the dirtiest football.

Do Wednesday Games Have An Effect on Chelsea’s Performance

By Lou Uhler, Chicago Blues I was going to post this Wednesday before the game vs Everton, but I thought that if I did and CFC did not win, I would be given more vitriol than Rafa Benitez.   This still does have importance, as it appears Chelsea will play at least two, with a good chance for three, more games during the midweek.   Before Wednesday, it always seemed (continued…)

CFC + Hazard = 4ever

…or at least for five more years! Love is in the air and Eden Hazard has agreed to a (lucrative) five-year deal with our beloved club. Is his hefty 200k quid a week (about $307,970!) worth it for us? I say yes. Is it fair that he and Cesc get paid more than our leader JT? That’s for another discussion. One thing’s for sure (as expounded by the infographic and article below, courtesy (continued…)

There are two different kinds of release clauses: 1) The release clause. (continued…)

Capital One Conundrum

              The 88th Minute is here and I’d like to immediately call the Capital One Cup into question. This competition for years has attracted controversy as to its importance, significance, and necessity, certainly with the already-loaded fixture list, the loaded winter period, and the complete lack of a winter break (which is another debate entirely). I will be candid in saying, first and foremost, (continued…)

Chelsea Hull vs. City 2013-14 Premier League season – what did CFC fans think?

Saturday afternoon sees Chelsea host relegation battlers Hull City, a game that ended well for the hosts on the opening day of last season, when first-half goals from Oscar and Frank Lampard gave the Blues a deserved 2-0 victory in the sunshine over Steve Bruce’s newly-promoted side. To see how Chelsea fans may be thinking about this game, we looked at the Beat Your Manager! Fantasy Football data from this (continued…)
