Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Derby County v Chelsea

Derby County away Tuesday 16 December 2015 League Cup The north of England was, in the late 18th and 19th centuries, the equivalent of today’s Silicon Valley for cutting edge technological and scientific innovation. Derby was at its heart, both geographically and intellectually. The North fulfilled this role because, in those days before motorways, airports […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Hull City

Hull City at home Saturday13 December 2014 Well what a week we are about to have. Next Tuesday we play Derby County, the team that boasts the shortest supporters in football and this Saturday we play Hull City, the team that comes from the fattest town in Britain. Now there is some debate as to […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Sporting Lisbon

Sporting Lisbon at home Wednesday 10 December 2014 We are frequently told that London is the sixth largest French city in the world with somewhere in the region of 300,000 of our Gallic chums residing here as our neighbours. Some of these are tax exiles fleeing the perceived egregiousness of Hollande’s regime. Others are simply […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Newcastle v Chelsea

Newcastle away Saturday 6 December 2014. In the centre of Newcastle stands a plinth or, as some may term it, a column and on top of it, carved in local stone, is the statue of Charles Grey, the Second Earl Grey. I remember in the early 1980s, while being ushered by the local police along […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v Tottenham

Tottenham at home Wednesday 3 December 2014 I live, for my sins, in Islington all too close to the Emirates. It does have its compensations. One of them is that I have but a quick cycle ride to and from work which allows me the time, when I arrive at my destination, to enjoy the […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Sunderland v Chelsea

Sunderland away – Saturday 29 November 2014 – 5:30pm kick off There is a sadness to Sunderland; a sadness that even the optimistically named Stadium of Light cannot dispel. Sunderland has been an important location for many centuries. Traces of sizeable and affluent Iron Age settlements have been found close to the city and the […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for FC Schalke v Chelsea

Schalke 04 away Champions League 25 November 2014 Not being an island or defined by geographic features such as mountains or rivers, Germany’s geography is often confusing. Its federal system and the fairly recent coming together of Germany as a united country in 1871 from a collection of a few dozen states of various sizes, […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Chelsea v West Brom

West Bromwich Albion at home 22 November 2014 There is much to discuss this week but, sadly, finding things to discuss about West Brom is a difficult task. We’ve already explored the strange fixation that this particular breed of Brummie has with not being Brummie despite their ground being on a few miles from the […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Liverpool v Chelsea

Liverpool v Chelsea Saturday 8 November 2014 Liverpool, we are told every time they play a match in any UEFA competition and indeed, as is more frequently the case these recent years, when they don’t, are European Royalty. This was a term first coined by some Liverpool supporters and greedily adopted by pundits and journalists […]

Driver on the Wing’s Weather for Maribor v Chelsea

Maribor away – Weds 5th November 7.45pm kick off Maribor is the second largest city in Slovenia. While that may seem impressive, one has to remember that Slovenia itself is slightly smaller than the American state of New Jersey, where the Sopranos and widespread industrial pollution come from and Israel and its population of under […]
