Chelsea 4-1 Norwich

It looked dyer from the outset, but the Blues quickly turned it around and dominated the end result, beating Norwich 4-1 courtesy of Torres, Lampard, Hazard, and Ivanovich, respectively. Mata proved crucial in distribution.

Go Blues!

Chelsea 4-2 Reading

CFC Match Report | WAGNH Opinion

Chelsea won another 3 points in yesterday’s match at home against Reading.

Things looked great at first, but half way through the first half, things looked bleak.

We took the lead thanks again to some close quarter dribbling by Hazard, or what I like to call “magic,” which led to Lampard’s second goal of the season when he pounded home his second PK. But then Cech got beat on a very well placed Pog header and then flubbed on a basic and routine free kick. We were losing 1-2 at the half. But the champions that we are saw to it that we came out with a vengeance, punishing Reading three times to keep the spoils to ourselves. We really turned it around.

Things are looking good, but we definitely have some work to do. It’s early in the season, so I am excited about what is to come!

Chelsea 2-0 Wigan

Chelsea FC Match Report | We Aint Got No History Game Thread

Five thirty in the freaking morning came way too early, not least for entertainment purposes. To watch football this early is more like letting one eyelid rest while the other works to remain open, one eye fixed on the TV while the other wearily relaxes. It’s times like this I wish I lived in Europe or even the East Coast for that matter. But I digress.

Two goals in the first 6 minutes of the game–defining. Ivanovich both started and finished the counter with some direction from Hazard. The latter drove into the box minutes later and earned a spot kick that Lampard converted. Game over. Chelsea took their foot off the gas at this point and coasted through the end of the game. Torres had a good opportunity around the 60th minute, but Wigan cleared it off the line at the last possible second. Still, Torres had a decent shift despite having nothing to show for it.

The whole team looked quite solid. Patient, reserved, calm, cool, and collective, from defense to offense, it was a good away result, fulfilling the ideal start to the new BPL season.

Chelsea 5-1 Tottenham

Chelsea beat Tottenham today 5-1 in the FA Cup Semifinal at Wembley.

Drogba scored first with a delightful first touch and a powerful strike. The first half ended 1-nil.

Mata or Terry “scored” the second goal. Admittedly, the ball never crossed the line, so it was a goal that wasn’t. It was a dubious goal, and it may have been credited to Mata, but it touched Terry last, changing direction, before approaching the goal line.

Ramires scored the third goal while Lampard scored the fourth and Malouda the fifth. Lampard’s goal was a wonderful strike from about 30 yards out on a free kick.

It will be Chelsea vs Liverpool in the FA Cup Final.

Let’s go, Blues!

We didn’t win, so we dropped 2 points, but we didn’t lose. Well, it’s not good enough, as we are in 6th place. Congrats to Lampard who’s penalty kick goal gave him his 150th Premier League goal, which is all the more brilliant as he is a midfielder and not a striker. It is his 15th goal of the season in all competitions. Keep it up, Super Frank!

Chelsea 2-1 Benfica

Chelsea won 2-1 (3-1 aggregate) against Benfica to move into the semifinals in the Champions League.

Lampard scored a PK and Meireles, after Benfica scored a free corner-header (what happened, Cech?), counter attacked in the last minutes of the game and scored a blistering outside of the boot curler. Exceptional goal. Fitting that it would come from him–a Portuguese finish to put the Portuguese team out of the Champions League.

KTBFFH!

Chelsea 3-0 Bolton Wanderers

Chelsea beat Bolton 3-nil at The Bridge today. The first half was rather dull and disheartening. But the Blues came out in the second half with high spirits, and David Luiz scored within the first 2 minutes with a nicely placed far post shot from within the 18. Not much later, Lampard’s corner found Drogba’s head, who placed it down to the ground and into the back of the net. Nearing the end of the game, Lampard controlled a volley into the back of the net to clinch the win.

I want to mention a few things.
1. Torres is not the “Torres of old”; he is the “Current Torres,” that is, a team contributor and not a goal scorer. Let’s utilize him for what he can do currently and not dwell on the past. I’ll take a Torres who can get assists and apply pressure even if he doesn’t score. We need to find a way to get our money’s worth out of him. I think he looked good and valuable during the 14 minutes he was in the game, not £50mil worth, but valuable nonetheless.
2. We are very much a second-half team, which worries me.
3. It was nice to see both Lampard and Drogba get on the score sheet.
4. A clean sheet. Wonderful. And at The Bridge no less.
5. Lampard emerges, again, as the top scorer of the team in all competitions.

Chelsea 1-0 Sunderland

Chelsea vs Sunderland Live Streaming and TV Listings, Live Scores, News, Videos :: January 14, 2012 :: England Premier League :: Live Soccer TV.

Well, Chelsea earned 1 goal, maintained a clean sheet, and walked away with 3 points against Sunderland at The Bridge. Torres was lively. He earned a should-have-been penalty kick and debatably one before that. His agility is improving as our only goal came from an acrobatic strike in the air that struck off the crossbar and subsequently ricocheted off of Lampard (now our leading goal scorer in all competitions) and into the goal. There was definitely some fine-tuning for him, but he looked good. Essien made his return, and he looked good too. Sunderland looked like they had the best chances, but fortunately for us they simply did not capitalize.

Way to go, Blues! KTBFFH!
