    Monday 18 August 2014 - Burnley 1 Chelsea 3

    And we’re back….finally!

    The home side held the lead for just 3 minutes before Chelsea took hold of the first half with a sublime display of free flowing passing football. Our opening goal of the campaign came from new boy Diego Costa with a rebounded shot.

    The second goal was sheer class, patient build up passing culminating in a superb pass from Cesc Fabregas into the path of the approaching Schurrle. And just after the half hour a perfectly weighted corner from Fabregas gratefully converted by Ivanovich.

    An almost perfect first half, only spoiled by a contentious yellow card shown to Costa for simulation when he went over in the box, seemingly tripped by the approaching keeper. A tough one to call, possibly a soft penalty to give, but I don’t think a card was warranted either.

    The second half was very quiet in comparison, and Burnley could have gained some confidence by our readiness to consolidate the lead, but with returning keeper Courtois picking up everything, we never looked in danger of conceding. And good to see Chelsea legend Didier Drogba come on towards the end of the game.

    A solid start to the season, and the superb Cesc Fabregas rightly man of the match.

    NB Photo not from this game, sadly the TV fixture change meant I wasn’t able to go.

    Last pre-season game saw us run out 2-0 winners against Real Sociedad, both goals from the impressive new boy Diego Costa.

    In fact, it was a good all round team performance and all is looking good for the start of the season with our trip to newly promoted Burnley in a few days.

    The boys did a lap of the Stamford Bridge pitch after they were each introduced to the fans before the game. (at Stamford Bridge)

    Return of The Drog

    Captain. Leader. Legend. JT. @johnterry.26 #cfc

    A great day at AFC Wimbledon today as we ran out 3-2 winners with goals from Mo Salah and two from captain John Terry. And following our 5-0 win against Wycombe Wanderers during the week, a positive start to our preseason before heading off for a short tour of Europe.

    Wishing @dembabafoot all the best in his new footballing venture at Besiktas.

    I will never forget his game defining goals against PSG and Liverpool.

    Always a blue!

    Chelsea have a agreed a deal with Atletico Madrid to bring Philipe Luis to the Bridge.

    I thought he was very impressive when he played against us in the Champions League.

    Whose next in?

    Referee Mike Dean takes a moment to give a practical @check_onetwo #feelingnuts demo to @chelseafc captain @johnterry.26!


    I’m supporting the amazing @check_onetwo movement because too many men’s lives are lost to testicular cancer, a cancer that can easily be treated if discovered early enough. West Ham footballer Dylan Tombides recently lost his battle. He was just 19.

    Please take a moment to show your support by posting an appropriate image on @instagram that gives your own interpretation of the movement’s hashtag #feelingnuts

    Let’s spread the word and say bollocks to testicular cancer!

    Go to www. checkonetwo.co.uk to find out more about the campaign, lots of fun content, and how you can get involved.

    Thank you.

    Our import of Atletico Madrid players looks to continue with reports that the signing of Filipe Luis has been completed for £20m. Yet to be confirmed by @chelseafc, or news of Courtois and Chelsea old boy Tiago.

    Saying farewell today to two Chelsea legends
