Chelsea Daft - Tue Aug 21 4:00 PM
Good afternoon everyone! We are two wins from two after beating the Arsenal at the weekend and ahead of our trip to Newcastle this Sunday, I will continue to focus on the Chelsea news that has caught my eye over the past 48 hours. In today's episode: What do you think of N'Golo Kante's new attack...
Chelsea Daft - Mon Aug 20 9:34 AM
Us : Sarri reckons it will take four weeks to get the players up to speed on the way he wants to play. With that in mind he went for the same line up as last week, but we all hoped that Hazard would be fit for more than the 15/20 minutes he played at Huddersfield. Nice sub to bring...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Aug 16 1:57 PM
Maurizio Sarri and his Chelsea players face their first real test against one of our top four rivals this season when we face Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Ahead of the game, I am asking you the Chelsea/Football fan what you believe to be genuine expectations this season? Granted we hav...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Mar 7 11:45 AM
Olivier Giroud has been speaking to the media since our defeat against Manchester City to re-iterate that the players remain focused on finishing in the top four and are behind the manager. Now I have to say that my last post may have seemed to be way over the top and a complete change of approa...
Chelsea Daft - Sat Feb 17 12:14 PM
Chelsea beat Hull City with four first-half goals from Willian (2), Pedro and the first goal of his Chelsea career for Olivier Giroud. Chelsea started the game with plenty of changes from the side that faced West Brom on Monday night. We started with Willy Caballero in goal, a back three of Gary...
Chelsea Daft - Mon Feb 5 10:40 AM
Under-fire Chelsea and Antonio Conte head to Watford on the Sky Sports Monday Night Football this evening with Olivier Giroud expected to start. Could the Frenchman literally save our season? It’s a big statement to make but think about it for a second before you judge and let me explain how I be...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Jan 31 9:59 AM
It’s transfer deadline day and Michy Batshuayi will sign on loan for Borussia Dortmund with Olivier Giroud joining Chelsea for a deal worth a reported £18m. Antonio Conte had confirmed in his pre-match press conference ahead of our Premier League game against Bournemouth tonight that Edin Dzeko...
Chelsea Daft - Tue Jan 30 9:23 AM
The transfer deadline closes tomorrow evening and Chelsea have a decision to make, should they pay a fee of around £25-30m for Edin Dzeko or Olivier Giroud for half that figure with both players aged 31 or stick with Michy Batshuayi? Looking from the outside in, I would imagine that a deal for Ol...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 25 9:56 AM
With Chelsea crashing out of the Carabao Cup semi-final against Arsenal last night , Antonio Conte faced a barrage of questions from the media and once again re-iterated the major issue he has that could force him out the door in the summer. To this point I have taken all talk of Antonio Conte l...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 25 9:11 AM
Us : Still no Cesc, and no Morata either. Big Willy would always have started I think tonight, and in front of him Conte had heeded Hazard's cry and gone all out. The Belgian started up front with Willian and Pesto (yawn, autospell) , and behind them was much as we would have anticipated. Someon...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 25 1:24 AM
Another Jekyll and Hyde performance from Chelsea has cost us the chance to go to Wembley and face Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final. It’s beginning to wind me up now, how many more times are we going to sit here and talk about the same thing with Chelsea this season? How many more times a...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Jan 24 11:40 AM
Antonio Conte faces a tactical dilemma heading to The Emirates tonight to take on Arsenal in the Carabao Cup semi-final second leg. This is not a post to focus on Arsenal and how they will approach the game because we all know they are going to line up with a back-three and wing-backs. This post...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 11 4:45 PM
Alvaro Morata is having a testing time at the moment having drawn another blank against The Arsenal last night. It's important to stick with him and not turn against him. It sounds ridiculous to say it really considering the start he has had to his Chelsea career but if anything, it's because he...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 11 4:45 PM
Having had to miss the game due to work commitments last night I was more than surprised to see the wave of negativity towards Antonio Conte after the game and call for some perspective as we are only half-way through the semi-final tie. Let me start by saying that I have called for Antonio Cont...

Chelsea 0 Arsenal 0 1st Leg Semi-Final Carabao Cup - Wednesday 10th January 2018 - Match report by Alex Churchill - Her Blog - A Girl Who Likes Balls. In the News: Everything is about racism so far this week. Oh dear Peter Beardsley. Oh. Dear. The Newcastle youth coach appears to be Britain's so...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Jan 10 10:48 AM
Chelsea take on Arsenal this evening in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg at Stamford Bridge and Antonio Conte's team selection may not be as expected with Leicester City at home in the Premier League this weekend. Ten days after the classic at The Emirates and in light of Arsenal's shocking...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Jan 4 11:45 AM
Chelsea drew 2-2 with Arsenal at The Emirates last night in a pulsating game of football and arguably one of the games of the season. It was a massive night for Chelsea with the pressure on to keep up with the pace being set by league leaders Manchester City, and to keep the pressure on Manchest...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Jan 3 11:46 AM
Antonio Conte takes his Chelsea team to The Emirates tonight to take on an Arsenal side ravaged by injuries. I expect Chelsea to stick with the same 3-4-3 formation with Danny Drinkwater and N'Golo Kante starting in midfield. It's a massive game for Chelsea once again knowing that Manchester Cit...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Dec 21 7:51 AM
Chelsea beat Bournemouth 2-1 to reach the Carabao Cup Semi-Finals with goals from Willian and Alvaro Morata. The match report below has been written by Alex Churchill, CFC Fanzine seller, Gin connoisseur and the owner of the fantastic Blog = A Girl Who likes balls . Our Game : The press have be...
Chelsea Daft - Thu Nov 2 12:46 PM
According to various press reports, Charly Musonda has requested to leave Chelsea in January and Arsene Wenger is preparing to make a firm offer for the young Belgian. Once again the press in this country have jumped on what they perceive to be a crisis at Chelsea and have rekindled the situatio...
Chelsea Daft - Sun Sep 17 8:13 PM
Chelsea and Arsenal shared the spoils at Stamford Bridge on Sunday in what turned out to be a disappointing performance compounded by David Luiz being sent off late in the game. Ahead of the game it seemed as though Chelsea had more than enough to put Arsenal away and impose a similar defeat to...
Chelsea Daft - Sun Sep 17 12:24 PM
Chelsea take on Arsenal at Stamford Bridge this afternoon and this early in the season both teams cannot afford to drop points. It's imperative that Chelsea keep up with the pace of Manchester City. Chelsea head into the game with just new signing Danny Drinkwater ruled out with a muscular probl...
Chelsea Daft - Wed Aug 30 11:38 AM
According to various newspaper reports and various media outlets, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has turned down a move to Chelsea despite a fee being agreed between both clubs and favours a move to Liverpool. It sounds ridiculous really doesn't it. Liverpool are no-where near winning the Premier Leagu...
Chelsea Daft - Tue Aug 29 3:45 PM
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has turned down a massive £180, 000 per week from Arsenal and will seal a move to Chelsea for LESS money ahead of the transfer deadline which is a massive kick in the teeth for Arsene Wenger. Having reportedly met with Wenger, The-Ox has made it clear that he has had enou...
Chelsea Daft - Fri Aug 11 1:56 PM
Following the defeat by Arsenal in the community shield on Sunday, a lot of questions are being asked. It's good to note that since the arrival of Roman Abramovich Chelsea have had the upper hand against Arsenal for the most part. However, in their last two competitive games, Chelsea simply haven...
Chelsea Daft - Mon Aug 7 3:46 PM
As you can see we learned nothing at all from the FA Cup Final. Us : It was a predictable Chelsea line up, with Michy replacing Costa . Obviously Matic and Chequebook Pulis have hooked up again like a couple of exes ignoring all the reasons they broke up in the first place, so Cesc started alongs...
Chelsea Daft - Fri Jul 28 4:45 PM
According to various reports, Antonio Conte is looking to Arsenal and Everton to bolster our ranks of home-grown talent in the squad with eyes on Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Ross Barkley. With Gary Cahill being the only British born player left in our starting eleven, in addition to the sale of...
Chelsea Daft - Wed May 31 7:45 AM
Diego Costa scored his twenty-first goal of the season in our FA Cup Final defeat to Arsenal and then issued Chelsea with an ultimatum if they wanted to sell him. The publicised interest from China has died down as reported on here last week and it looked as though Diego Costa was about to re-neg...
Chelsea Daft - Fri May 26 7:45 AM
Antonio Conte will field his strongest eleven against Arsenal in the FA Cup Final at Wembley tomorrow as he looks to win the double in his first season. It's my intention to not focus on anything to do with Arsenal in the build up to the game but to focus on Chelsea as Antonio Conte prepares the...
Chelsea Daft - Mon Apr 24 8:24 AM
Chelsea beat Tottenham with goals from Willian (2), Eden Hazard and a stunning strike from Nemanja Matic to set up the FA Cup Final against Arsenal on 27th May. I have to be honest, heading into the game after a poor performance against Manchester United last week and with the reported illnesses...
