Chelsea 1-0 Stoke City

An 85th minute winner gave Chelsea the three points but we played well and  had some decent chances. A more attacking style as well with Michael Owen again coming on as a sub late on and another impressive showing from new boys Geoff Cameron and Stephen N’Zonzi. Red card tackle by David Luiz who was lucky to only get a red and Oscar tried out for the diving medals at Rio 2016 – good to see him booked though. Swansea up next at home…

Andy Wilkinson will serve a three match ban for his elbow incident; Danny Higginbotham has joined Ipswich Town on a month’s loan; Ricardo Fuller scored again for Charlton.


Davies to Bradford and Fuller next?

Andrew Davies has signed a one year contract with Bradford City, where he had been on loan. Davies joined from Southampton in our first season on the Premiership but has hardly played for us and seemed to be one of the bulk squad buys we made upon promotion a la Soares and Tonge.

Another out of contract player Ricardo Fuller is supposedly in talks with Ipswich Town as he has been rumoured to have only been offered a one year deal by Stoke.

Danny Higginbotham in today’s Sentinel states he wants to play more in his remaining year of his contract and if this doesn’t happen this may mean a move away from Stoke. Would depend a lot on the futures of Woodgate, Danny Collins and Matthew Upson plus any new players coming into the club over the summer.


Stoke City 0-0 Aston Villa

It’s a point and that’s the highlight of a dire game 😦

No Fuller on the bench so only presume he’s being saved for the weekend game against Wigan?

Transfer rumours have both Pennant and Jerome supposedly wanting away but of more concrete fact is that Danny Pugh will sign for Leeds Utd where he has been on loan, provided the two clubs can do a deal. Danny Collins could be staying at Ipswich Town and if we are really lucky Bradford will take on Andrew Davies 🙂
