Chelsea’s Away Kit – As Bad As Any Newcastle Jersey

15 07 2010

Well, we discussed how bad ass Chelsea’s new home kit (seen to the right) is a while back.  The red pop in the collar, and the Batman-tight fit will be flying around the Bridge and scoring goals like never before.

Our away kit, which was just released, is the complete opposite.  Black and orange? Are you kidding me?  Are Chelsea going to be playing in AYSO this season?  I hate, hate black as a jersey color.  It’s meant to look tough, but it just looks dumb instead.  And orange?  Where exactly is that coming from – are we trying to recruit Wesley Sneijder or something?  Hopefully the third kit will be a step up from this.  Last years 3rd kit was f***ing sweet – (hint for any Thugs looking for a last minute Christmas gift for Markie).

Hull City here we come!


In Fashionable Style

9 05 2010

Chelsea won the Barclay’s Premier League in strong fashion today, with an 8-0 drubbing against Wigan.  What else did we accomplish?

  1. Record 103 goals scored in the campaign – 17 better than Man U
  2. Drogba wins the Golden Boot over Rooney with 29 goals on the season, thanks to a hat-trick today (would definitely have been better without the sulking Drogs)
  3. Cech and the back line kept 17 clean sheets this season, for the “Golden Glove”.
  4. 4 times this season that the club has gone for 7 or more goals… and the third time in the last 2 months!

Way to go Blues… thanks for the memorable first season of fandom.  Many more to come.

And a huge thanks to Sean and Jacob who introduced me to the EPL and are now wishing they hadn’t.  You guys are the best… I love the Thugs.

Chelsea’s New Kit

Or as I affectionately call it… “What we will be wearing when we beat you next year!”

Aston Villa Changes Ownership

10 04 2010

Breaking News!!!  Aston Villa has had a change in the owners box, which now belongs to… Chelsea.  After a 3-0 victory at Wembley Stadium to advance to the FA Cup Finals it is clear that Chelsea FC is in charge against the Villains.  Aggregate score for the last 2 weeks?  10-1 Chelsea.

If we don’t own them, I don’t know who does.

Jesus Was Raised, But Not the Lineman’s Flag!

3 04 2010

While we folk who embrace the meaning behind Easter celebrate the raising of our Lord this Sunday in defeat of The Devil, many of us are also inclined to celebrate the non-raising of the flag at Old Trafford for Didier Drogba’s offside goal score to defeat The Red Devils.

Chelsea took down the Mighty Man U for the 3rd time this season (wowie kazowie!) 2-1, to go top of table with a two point lead over the Rooney-less Reds.  Not only that, but Dave (soon to be Arsenal correspondent for the Thugs) gave me a Chelsea jersey from a couple seasons ago as a sacrifice to be let into the group.  Thank you Dave… I look awesome in it.  But how can you not in a Chelsea jersey!

Just imagine a 6'2" chiseled Adonis in this, and you'll get the mental picture of what I look like

5 games left… let’s do this Blues!!!

Cech This Out

7 01 2010

So I know I have personally been frustrated with Chelsea’s defense, and Petr Cech’s goal-tending specifically… all as Chelsea has flopped around this last month and failed to make any headway in the League.  I am not alone in this sentiment, as many posts on the web, and fans have made clear.  That said, I feel I must step back a little from this attitude as I look at the statistics for this season.

Which goalkeeper is it that has the lowest Goals Against Average? Is it Joe Hart?  No, he has the most overall saves… but it is Cech, with a .84 GAA over the season.  Which team has the lowest amount of goals scored against them? Man U?  No… it is Chelsea with only 16 goals allowed.  Who has the most clean sheets this season? Certainly not Andy Brown (seriously, his bed is disgusting)… No, it is Petr Cech and Chelsea FC with 10 shutouts so far.

Is he the same player he was before his head injury and subsequent unfortunate wardrobe choices?  I don’t know, I never watched him back in the day.  So I think it may be in my best interest to hold my tongue till the end of the season (my very first, for crying out loud) before I protest anymore about my keeper.  As the saying goes… he may be a son-of-a-bitch, but he’s my son-of-a-bitch!
