I hope he can stay on as well, I hope he stays. I hope he’s going to be the long-term manager at the club.So I think it’s the way forward. But I don’t know really, this is just my opinion.” Continue reading

ESPN Pundit Slams Alvaro Morata After Poor Debut Season With Chelsea

ESPN Pundit Alejandro Moreno admitted that he was wrong to suggest that Alvaro Morata would turn out to be a success with Chelsea during the ongoing season. The Spain international was brought in as a straight replacement for compatriot Diego Costa from Real Madrid, and he made an instant impact with the Blues, scoring seven goals in his first eight appearances.

However, he has since struggled to find the scoresheet regularly, owing to injuries, fitness and a loss of form, and he is currently on 13 goals across 39 games through the season. Speaking on the ESPN FC show, Moreno admitted that Morata has underperformed during his maiden English campaign, and believes his struggles have been due to Conte’s management as well as his average showing in the frontline, he said:  “I have to say I was wrong on Morata. I thought he would be better than he has been. Now, Conte hasn’t exactly done him any favours. But Morata himself his performances individually have not been good.”

Chelsea have been given the permission to build a £500 million 60,000-seat stadium by the mayor of London, according to reports.


This means the club can demolish or rework the current state of the stadium to increase the capacity from the current 41,600 to 60,000.

Hammersmith and Fulham Council approved the plans earlier in the year but the mayor – who makes the final decision – has given the go-ahead.

“Having taken a balanced view of the application, I’m satisfied this is a high-quality and spectacular design which will significantly increase capacity within the existing site, as well as ensuring fans can have easy access from nearby transport connections.

“I’m confident this new stadium will be a jewel in London’s sporting crown and will attract visitors and football fans from around the world,” the mayor Sadiq Khan said.

The Premier League side was elated at the permission to proceed. Continue reading

Antonio Conte Disappointed to See Mark Clattenburg’s Exit

Antonio Conte says that he is disappointed to see the referee Mark Clattenburg leave the Premier league.


One of the best referees in England, Clattenburg has been given the opportunity to take charge of some of the biggest games like the English FA Cup final. He was regarded as the next big thing in English football refereeing aside from Howard Webb, who retired from refereeing a few years ago. Clattenburg was recently rumoured to be considering offers from China and Saudi Arabia. These were far more lucrative than the £ 100,000 per year contract he currently receives as the Premier League referee.

In addition to this contract, Clattenburg is understood to be receiving around £5,000 per match. Now, the referee will be receiving a whopping £ 500,000 per year. More importantly, this will be money that does not attract any taxes since Saudi Arabia is a tax haven. It is also understood that China offered him around £ 1 million per year in order to be the head of refereeing. Continue reading

José Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that John Terry is no longer the first team choices

Chelsea boss José Mourinho has dismissed suggestions that John Terry is no longer the first team choices that he has been for more than a decade.

Terry was recently dropped to the bench for the Champions League game againstMaccabi Tel Aviv. Chelsea’s disastrous form at the start of the season was thought to be the reason behind this decision from Mourinho. After securing a comfortable 4-0 win with Kurt Zouma and Gary Cahill at the back, Mourinho went on to keep Terry on the bench for the crucial league encounter against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

His decision to keep Terry on the bench was viewed with surprise at the start of the game, but not many questioned it after the 2-0 win that was achieved with Zouma and Eden Hazard on the scoresheet. Now, many believe that the time of Terry has come to an end, but Mourinho says that it is not the case and that the 34-year-old is still his important player. Terry signed a 12 month extension to his contract only in the summer. He will consider his future in the next few months with speculation that the former England captain made decide to join the MLS for one final hurrah. Continue reading
