The Slow Fade to Black of Diego Costa: Football’s Shameless Villain

The Slow Fade to Black of Diego Costa: Football’s Shameless Villain

Diego Costa is a bad man. And he looks the part. He is simply one of the dirtiest, most disgraceful, at times brilliantly skillful, talented footballers who ever slithered into the English Premier League. But he may be making a return to La Liga much sooner than planned. Here are some of the reasons. Costa completed his £32M move from Athletico Madrid to Chelsea in July 2014. He wasted little time starting his EPL tenure by burning up the league …
Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

Romelu Lukaku - Why He'd Make Any Premier League Team

It's almost hard to believe that Romelu Lukaku was once an unwanted outcast with Chelsea back in 2012 when he was shipped away on loan to West Brom after making just 15 appearances in all competitions for the Blues. An impressive record of 17 goals in 38 games during his season with West Brom prompted interest from Everton and after another successful loan spell, he signed for the Merseyside club permanently in the summer of 2014.

Diego's Dramatic Decline

Diego's Dramatic Decline

This time last year Chelsea were running away with the league.  They didn't lose their first league match until December sixth and set the tone for an utterly dominant season atop the Premier League.  A lot of this dominance were due to the contributions of their two big Spanish signings in Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa.  Fabregas was putting chances on a plate and Costa was putting them away with scary efficiency.  12 months on and the Chelsea machine is well and truly …
Spurs 0 Chelsea 0: Battle at the Lane

Spurs 0 Chelsea 0: Battle at the Lane

A nil nil draw at White Hart Lane, would suggest that Chelsea are still on the recovery trail. Mourinho’s wards have now gone three games unbeaten and currently sit fourteenth in the league. In what some would say was a fairly pulsating game of football the final result didn’t necessarily convey the full frantic drama this London derby delivered to viewers of the affair.
