Newcastle 1-1 CHELSEA: What’s Being Said?

Don’t really know what to say about yet another game where we didn’t get what we deserved but there’s been plenty said anyway, so here’s a selection:

EPLtalk think our title challenge has cooled

Whilst The Guardian see it as a slip-up just about avoided

And The Independent agree our blushes were spared

The Daily Mail reckon Ancelotti’’s feeling the heat

Although The Telegraph reckon he’s just desperate to get his key players back

And finally, bring us the Chelsea manager’s thoughts

As for TheChelseaBlog view, how Newcastle got a point out of that is beyond me but Chris Hughton must’ve squeaked from his rear end for most of it whilst his side worked theirs off defensively. Alex’s lack of fitness was the key to Newcastle’s opener and he never looked himself at all. Collectively, we looked frustrated and whilst it’s fair to say we battered the Geordies, desperation probably got in the way – as Kalou’s horrible miss demonstrated.

For all the Geordie’s embarrassing defending off the pitch – with ‘their Cheryl’ obviously vital to the proceedings – it certainly didn’t do our Cole any harm and served only to see him have a bit of a blinder. Sadly he was the only player to really stand out for us on the day, shame the rest of our lads haven’t got on the wrong side of an X Factor judge really.

A point was better than nothing I suppose but with both United and Arsenal winning and our goal difference gone, it’s another game that’s done us no favours and with one win in five and Everton, Spurs, United and Arsenal all coming in the weeks ahead, it has to be said we’re more desperate than ever to see the return of Lampard, Essien and John Terry.



Blue is the colour is an honest insight to the World of Chelsea FC. Not always pretty, sometimes rather cynical, but always realistic.
