Should Samuel Eto'o Get A New Contract At Chelsea?

Should Samuel Eto'o Get A New Contract At Chelsea?

Chelsea have a much maligned strike force, but Samuel Eto'o has been a key player for them, scoring crucial goals against Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool. There have been doubts cast about the Eto'o's age, most prominently from manager Jose Mourinho, but surely he has the ability to carry on for two or three years yet? Chelsea are likely to buy a big name striker in the summer, which will increase competition in the current squad as none of the …

Sunderland Vs Chelsea Preview | Stats, Key Men & Team News

The month ahead is the busiest of the season and it will prove to be crucial for both of these sides.

Azpilicueta v Ivanovic: Who Should Start for Chelsea? | Stats Compared

Azpilicueta v Ivanovic: Who Should Start for Chelsea? | Stats Compared

Cesar “we’ll just call you Dave” Azpilicueta came to Chelsea in the summer transfer window of 2012 as a rather unknown entity. Having just released Bosingwa, and with Paulo Ferreira seemingly present for emergencies only, it seemed as if Ivanovic would be the number one Chelsea right-back at that time; however, Azpilicueta made more of an impact than expected. In fact he was one of the revelations of the season not just at Chelsea but in the Premier League and …
Victor Moses | Solution to LFC's lack of attacking depth? Stats Vs Downing

Victor Moses | Solution to LFC's lack of attacking depth? Stats Vs Downing

Chelsea’s latest attacking midfield acquisitions, in the shape of Brazilian Willian and German André Schürrle, highlights the fact that they have an abundance of offensive talent at their disposal. Consequently, players such as the frighteningly talented Juan Mata have been pushed to the periphery of the squad in favor of these new additions, which appears ludicrous for someone with 25 assists in the past two years, and he's been the clubs Player of the Year twice in the process. However …

Super Frank | Man or God? | A Look At Future Successors

Super Frank Lampard. The very player whose awesomeness made me become a Chelsea fan. Not just me, almost every other Chelsea fan of my age became a Chelsea devotee because of Lampard. Ah, what were those days when we used to have Lampard, Ballack, Makelele and The Bison Michael Essien. Easily the best midfield in the world. I'd dare say a few notches above the current UEFAlona Barcelona. Maka was the interceptor, who broke opponent attacks, Ballack the enforcer, and with …

Cavani To Chelsea | Van Persie Vs Cavani Stats Comparison

If one listens to the Twitter loudmouth Tancredi Palmeri, which one should, you would have heard him shouting out of your monitors and mobile screens that Edinson Cavani to Chelsea is very much done! What is expected is that Chelsea would have to pay his complete release clause, widely reported to be amounting to the astronomical sum of 63 million Euros, plus some Mars bars as a personal deal-sweetener for Antonio De Laurentiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis to make Cavani de-Partenopei (nice pun, eh?). …

Courtois to be loaned back to Atletico Madrid | Courtois vs Cech Stats and Analysis

It has been confirmed by Atletico Madrid that Thibaut Courtois will play with them for the third season in a row next year. Having signed for Chelsea in the summer of 2011, he has yet to make a single appearance for the club despite impressing hugely in La Liga and being touted as perhaps the best young goalkeeping talent in the world. Courtois played a significant role in both of his seasons with Atletico, winning the Europa League in 2012 …

Gooner Rooney? In depth analysis of stats from the last 5 years

Wayne Rooney has been regarded as England's best player and one of the best forwards in the world by many. It is not surprising then that Rooney is the third highest-paid footballer in the world after Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, with an annual income of  £18 million, including sponsorship deals. After his arrival from Arsenal in the summer of 2012, Robin van Persie eclipsed Rooney as Manchester United's main man upfront.
