The better team, dominant indeed for extended periods. Friedel has a quiet afternoon. That superiority isn't converted into goals. Sure we come close, hit the woodwork maybe, but all the flowing football means little if the chances aren't taken. Time passes, we fade, our opponents take full advantage of rare but significant errors and we are punished, albeit with at least one excellent strike.

Just Arsenal at related • 4 views
The Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he may prefer to buy Samir Nasri from Arsenal rather than the Tottenham midfielder Luka Modric. It has become common knowledge that Arsenal are preparing to sell the Frenchman and Man City are expecting to sign Nasri at £22m although Wenger doesn't really want to sell him.

Chelsea

The Di Matteo effect

Arsenal Insider at related • 0 views

Roberto Di Matteo has taken Chelsea back to basics. With his only previous Premier League management experience being his time as the manager of West Brom, he knows what it means to be in the results business.

When you get a team promoted from the Championship to the top flight, it's often all about getting the best out of limited players, or playing to the strengths of the players you have; you can't go out and get the best players in the country.

What have Chelsea lost?

What have Chelsea lost? Their minds? Yes. The respect of the footballing world? Absolutely. Their place among Europe's elite for next season? Quite possibly, but that's not what I mean.

How good is their now former manager Andre Villas-Boas? It feels like his time at the highly dysfunctional Chelsea will not serve as a good representation of his skills.

Comparing the problems at Arsenal and Chelsea

It says a lot that after only two first legs in the last 16 of the Champions League, it looks likely that for the first time since 1996, there will be no English teams in the quarter-finals of Europe's top club competition. It says even more that no one is really that surprised.

Chelsea's task might not be as mountainous as Arsenal's, but there is a glaring lack of confidence in Andre Villas-Boas' side.

Why Chelsea Need To End Reign Of Player Power - originally posted on Soccerlens.com

When Andre Villas-Boas took over as Chelsea Manager in June 2011, he probably didn't envisage the club's dressing room being his biggest problem during his first season in English football. A dressing room filled with international footballers and seasoned professionals would surely have been an attraction for any potential Chelsea manager following the ruthless sacking of Carlo Ancelotti.

Chelsea look more like Arsenal every day

When Arsenal collapse in comical style, such as from 4-0 up to draw 4-4 with Newcastle last season, or conceding a goal seconds after equalising in the 3-2 defeat to Swansea, it feels fashionable to say "only Arsenal could have lost a game like that".

And there's something to it, to be fair, our defence has generally been the worst in the top four over the years, and we have a poor record in points lost from winning positions.

Expect more ups and downs

Consider this a 'half season review', but with one game added on. After a terrible start, followed by an excellent run, followed by a topsy turvy Christmas period, I feel we now have a good idea of how the season is going to go.

When we beat QPR and Chelsea lost at home to Villa, we leapfrogged them into 4th place.
