The last two games at Stamford Bridge has now produced fourteen goals. There was the scintillating last day 8-0 thrashing of Wigan Athletic, the day we became champions and at the start of the 2010/11 season, a wonderful 6-0 win over West Bromwich Albion sees us top the Premiership table already. A double strike from Florent Malouda, a hat-trick by Didier Drogba and Frank Lampard made it a true blue day at Stamford Bridge. For the official report on the game, click on the Chelsea 6-0 West Bromwich Albion link.
After four consecutive pre-season defeats, the mood was far more upbeat after the thrashing of West Brom. Carlo Ancelotti explained “Didier did a fantastic job, not just because he scored but he worked for the team very hard, as did Anelka and Malouda. They all worked very hard defensively.” Full post-match reaction can be found by clicking the link We Did Our Job

On another note, it was excellent to see Roberto Di Matteo and Eddie Newton back at Stamford Bridge yesterday with West Bromwich Albion. Good luck to them for the rest of the season. Another familiar face at Stamford Bridge yesterday was Ruud Gullit, who was half time guest of Neil Barnett.
