About This Blog


On these pages are the thoughts and musings of myself and myself only. As a lifelong Chelsea fan and season ticket holder, the vast majority of pieces are on the 2012 European Cup winners though occasionally I veer off onto some other subject.

I hope you enjoy what I write  but even if you don’t – in fact, especially if you don’t – please feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments section so that I know exactly where I should stick my opinions and what to do with my day job.

  1. Dear Phil,

    I’m emailing from Don’t Panic, and was just wondering if you could help me out. I was hoping to put a piece of seeded hyperlink up on your website/Facebook page for a competition we’re running for Chelsea FC. We’ve got the new kit to send to you if you help. Plus other stuff depending on the impressions. – I also wondered if you are friendly with other sites who might be interested?

    The grand prize is a once in a lifetime fan experience at Stamford Bridge

    Posting this on your blog, possibly as an advertorial kind of piece(?), would be a fantastic help for us.

    Does that sound like something you might be interested in? Also, how many impressions do you get in a week? We need to get this approved by the club by next week so it would be great if you can get back to me over the coming days.

    Please do let me know what you think – I hope to hear from you soon,




  2. hello Phillie,
    I guess you need a reality check and an appointment with a shrink… seems like you have lost your brains and definitely need some time in a mental asylum.


  3. Hello Phil,

    Big fan of your work and a massive Blue’s fan from America. It’s great being able to read your work every week and feel like a true part of the club from afar! I was fortunate enough to make it over to London for the week and am hoping to make my dream of going to Stamford Bridge for a match a reality. I know they’re playing Arsenal which should be a great match, but I’m finding it hard to find an avenue for tickets. Unfortunately, I’m not a member of the club and it seems like that’s the only way to acquire tickets for a match of this magnitude. I was hoping you might be able to shed any sort of light on how to get a pair of tickets for this match. If all else fails, I was planning on looking for touts at the stadium the day of the match and just paying over face value if necessary. Any words of advice would be most appreciated and once again, great writing, keep it up!




    1. Hi Peter,

      Unfortunately trying to get a ticket foir this match will be extremely difficult given the proximity of the game. As ever there will be touts around hawking tickets near the ground but they will be charging a massive mark up and there is no guarantee that they will be genuine. Social media and chelsea forums might be an avenue.

      https://twitter.com/CFCTickets used to be a good information source for tickets.

      Good luck in your quest and hopefully we aill all be celbrating at the final whistle.
