4. Chelsea Daft @chelseadaft

Website Bio: A Chelsea Fans Blog for was created at the beginning of March 2009. The Blog is about all I see in the world of Chelsea and quite simply report about it based on my “Rose-Tinted” glass wearing opinions.
As you all know by now there are loads and loads of blog’s or sites out there that do the same but hopefully I am trying to do it a little bit different. I am not a team of people writing different articles each day, backed as part of a network!. This blog isn’t about a team of different people writing articles about every single article that appears in the press or the media.
5. Chelsea in America @CFCInAmerica
Twitter following: 7k
Website Bio: Chelsea In America, or as we lovingly, and cheekily describe ourselves, the CIA, is an official supporters club of Chelsea Football Club. From Seattle to Florida, from Boston to San Diego, and even stretching to Alaska, we are a band of passionate, loyal and fun loving Chelsea supporters right here in the United States of America.
Someone once suggested that supporters reflect the true nature of the club they support, and that couldn’t be truer. After 30 years of following The Blues, I have found that Chelsea has fervor, a passion, and a loyalty that is tempered with a good natured sense of humor, wit, and self-effacing charm. And we here at the CIA bring that to all we do, a bit tongue in cheek, like our name, but loyal and passionate to our blue-blooded heart.
6. The Chelsea Blog @TheChelseaBlog
Twitter following: 5k
Website Bio: TheChelseaBlog is the ramblings of a lifelong, die-hard Chelsea fan, newly established following one of my more disillusioned years – and trust me, there’s been a few of them. From the high of my first game as a youngster until the appointment of Grant, there’s been a lot of highs and lows following Chelsea. It’s not always been the easiest job in the world and I usually find a sense of both irony and humour helps.
The blog is a frequently updated collection of articles relating to all things Chelsea. A sometimes cynical, although I’d like to think usually realistic perspective, with maybe even the odd bit of praise where it’s due.
Whether you agree or disagree, feel free to leave comments but more importantly, enjoy!
7. The Shed Ender @theshedender

Website Bio: Lifelong Chelsea fan and editor of The Shed Ender since November 2010. My favourite Chelsea player ever is Gianfranco Zola, who gave us so many great memories, including his winner against Stuttgart in the Cup Winners’ Cup, his hat-trick against Derby County and that glorious back-heeled goal against Norwich in the FA Cup…. Anthony Williams, Editor.

Website Bio: Why did I start this blog? I love football, I love Chelsea, I love internet and I love writing. Add up all this, you get a chelsea blog. There were/are not too many Chelsea blogs around. I don’t think I’m better at football or writing. But what I think that I bring through this blog, is just my personal views and opinions on the game and on Chelsea. I’m no expert but I’m just one of you. This blog is not meant to be the voice of the fans – this is just the voice of me as a Chelsea fan.
