Friendly rivalry

In his latest blog for the official Chelsea website, Stephen Rea explains what it's like watching the Blues in America alongside rival fans...

Super eight

An ode to N'Golo Kante!

In her latest blog for the official Chelsea website, season ticket holder Hannah Kurzawski pays tribute to our midfield maestro N'Golo Kante... While Monday’s brilliant win over West Ham at Stamford Bridge was all about Eden Hazard, which is not surprising after that superb first goal, an unsung hero amongst the Chelsea ranks reached a big milestone recently. The occasion passed by quietly, with no fuss, mere business as usual – just like the man in question himself.

A Bridge too far, just!

In his latest blog for the Chelsea website, Stephen Rea explains why tiredness got the better of him for our clash with Cardiff but was back fresh and alert to watch our victory over Brighton. I returned home from the pub happy after watching Chelsea defeat Brighton. But I have a confession to make. The first half of the Cardiff game was a (Stamford) Bridge too far for me.

How times have changed

In his latest USA blog for the official Chelsea website, Stephen Rea discusses how football stadia has changed and why he prefers sitting close to the dugouts... I’ve been watching professional football for 42 years. The best seat I’ve ever had at a game was for Chelsea’s visit to Chicago in 2006.

They were superb, about five rows from the front near the halfway line, although we lost 1-0 to the MLS All-Stars.
