Tom Overend – Website Owner/Editor – @tovers98
I am Tom, and I have been a Chelsea addict for as long as I remember. From talking nothing but Chelsea in the playground, to wearing royal blue everywhere, I breathe blue! I have been a regular matchgoer since around 2013, and talking Chelsea on Twitter and various podcasts since 2018. I have just graduated from the University of St Andrews (Economics and International Relations), and I am currently looking for my first job – not too far from SW6 of course!
If it’s Chelsea related – I am your man!
Dan – Editor – @scratchknudsen
My name is Dan and I am 33 years old. I am from Charlotte, North Carolina, USA and football has been my favorite sport since 2002. As an American, “soccer” wasn’t at the forefront of my sports enthusiasm growing up. We cling to glimpses of World Cup hope and then spend the next 3 years trying to forget disappointment; rinse, and repeat. American stars rise and fall, but Pulisic is the real deal. Thankfully, because of Pulisic, I was able to discover an impassioned Chelsea fan base that is like no other. I am a brand-new Blue, and it’s not going to change anytime soon. Oh, and I went to law school and I love editing.
Martell Dublin – Editor – @martelldublin
Keeping it short and simple, the name is Martell. Chelsea fan since 2010. Reading and music are my two greatest passions. Harry Potter is my life, I will literally die without it. Professional gambler on horses. That’s it really (:
James Smith – Graphic Designer – @FtblJames_
I’m 19 years old, and a huge fan of Chelsea. I actually only began getting into football at the age of 9, and decided to support Chelsea through family and friends. I’ve lived just outside London all my life so I’ve been lucky enough to be able to attend games quite regularly with my first game at the Bridge coming in 2011 against Ipswich Town in the FA Cup. That’s probably when my passion for Chelsea became what it is today, with my all time favourite player, Frank Lampard, scoring twice that day. I’m currently doing a degree in Graphic Design at UCA Farmhands, and feature on the occasional football podcast within the Chelsea community. I created All Things Chelsea in February 2019 before handing it on to Matisse in January 2020.
Dakota Williams – Systems Admin/ SEO – @_kotawilliams
Hi, I’m Dakota, but most people call me Kota. I work at a legal marketing agency in Columbus, OH and joined the All Things Chelsea team to help out with some of the technical and on-page aspects of the site. I’ve played soccer since I was 5, so I’ve always loved the game, but I really started liking Chelsea from using them in FIFA in the mid-2000s, and then totally fell in love with them watching the 2008 Champions League Final. My favorite Chelsea memory has to be the 2012 Champions League Final.
I’m Enoch, the video editor, and I believe that visual representation of the beautiful game is just as important as the literal representation – which is why I make videos in collaboration with the skilled writers of All Things Chelsea. I started to support Chelsea from when I was six and I saw Drogba, Lampard and Terry on the television. I was hooked for life. And at 17, this obsession shows no sign of slowing down. I also upload everyday to a YouTube Channel called The Football Hourly. You’ll see me credited frequently in articles with my videos!
Shayan Ali – Contributor – @FinallyChels
My name is Shayan Ali. I’m currently 21 years old. I am from Pakistan. I have lived in Dubai my whole life. Recently I have moved to the U.K for my education. I’m studying business management (marketing). My passion for football started when I was 4 years old. I would watch and play football with my brother who is an Arsenal fan. However, I started to support Chelsea because I felt like I belong here and I loved watching Frank Lampard. He was my idol when I was growing up. There have been many ups and downs since I started to support Chelsea but I will always be proud of Chelsea Football Club.

Ameya Gorkhe – Contributor – @LampardsLegacy
I’m 18 years old and from Bangalore, India. Born in a cricket loving country, football sparked my interest in 2010, during the FIFA World Cup. I started watching football matches and haven’t missed a single Chelsea game since. Lampard was my favourite Chelsea hero growing up. Staying up till 4am on a school night became a regular instance and I haven’t regretted one second. I’ve always wanted to share my opinions and write articles and this a perfect platform for it.
Justin Shain – Contributor – @jusshain
Hi, I’m Justin. In addition to writing articles for All Things Chelsea, I host my own Chelsea podcast called Chelsea Till I Die! I would call myself a true Chelsea supporter and a big Pulisic cultist. I have been supporting Chelsea for a very long time now and also have been playing football for quite some time now. My favorite player is definitely Azpilicueta. The 2012 Champions league final is for sure my favorite Chelsea moment of all time, still buzzing to be the only London club with a Champions League trophy. I’m excited to start contributing to All Things Chelsea and voice my opinions about the club I love. KTBFFH.
George Priestman – Contributor – @gpriestman1998
Hi guys, I’m 21 years old and of course, I’m a huge fan of Chelsea and have been since a very early age! Despite being from the North, I follow the team week in week out and I just love the club and the team. I’m currently in my final year at the University of Bath doing Sports Performance and I’m looking to go on and do extra studies in Sports Journalism. This website as well as the Chelsea Echo/90 min and Last Word on Football have helped me to express my work and I hope to continue doing so on here.

Hi, my name is Sam, and I’m an aspiring sports journalist from South West London. I have a photographic memory for nothing else besides football, and of course, my team is Chelsea. As I live locally I have been attending games both home and away since 2010 and as of 2014, I’ve been combining my passion for both football and literature through various different blogs and work placements. I’m currently studying Sports Journalism at University, and I hope that my work here will be both insightful and interesting.

Greetings, My name is Steven Aguilar, or my Alias, Rey Stevinho. I’m a die hard Chelsea fan from New York City. I grew up watching the beautiful game of football around the age of 6 and would watch the Premier League on weekend mornings with my pops.

Alexander Huyberechts – Contributor – @cfcalex98
I am a 21-year-old American and Belgian national, born in London. I have lived in other countries, such as the UAE (2010-12), Belgium (2012-14), and Switzerland (2014-16), before coming back to London (2016) for university. I’m currently doing a degree in Electronic Engineering with Management, at KCL London. I started supporting Chelsea since I was 5 (2003) as I lived almost 1 mile away from Stamford Bridge. My first ever game at the stadium was on the 9th April 2006, when Chelsea played West Ham and won 4-1. I’m also a football YouTuber (CFCAlex), and have been uploading Chelsea content (news, vlogs, etc.) since June 2018.
CFCBleedBlue – Contributor – @cfcbleedblue
Hey, the name is Sunny and I’m an Indian who doesn’t watch cricket but still bleeds blue! I’ve been in love with football since the day I scored a stoppage time winner for my school team against our biggest rivals. All my mates were either Man United or Arsenal fans but I felt a connection with Chelsea. Grew up idolizing Drogba, Lampard, Terry and have been supporting the club through all the highs and lows for 14 beautiful years now. From staying up till 4am as a kid to watch our Champions League games and then sleeping in school to now forcing my favourite pub to only play Chelsea’s matches every weekend in a cricket obsessed nation, I have loved every second of my life as a Chelsea fan.

I love sciency, philosophical rants but also enjoy a good drama or thriller. I swear by Tolkien, Rowling, Ballack and Homer Simpson.

Iram – Contributor – @IramCFC22
Hi, my name’s Iram and I’m one of the new writers for All Things Chelsea. I live in America but I am Canadian over anything else. I’ve been a Chelsea fan since I was very young mostly because I had older relatives who were die-hard Chelsea fans. I live in Virginia and have been to London once or twice but I’ve never had the chance to actually go to the Bridge. Since Jose Mourinho’s second period as a manager for this club, I followed the club almost religiously and looked up to players like Hazard, Frank Lampard, and John Terry. I’m currently in high school and plan on going to university for engineering once I graduate. Lastly, I’m really glad to be part of this team and hope that everyone enjoys our content!
Konark Antani – Contributor – @cfckonark
I’m Konark Antani, a 23 year old Chelsea fan from India. I was born and brought up in India, and nobody around me used to watch football growing up. My liking for football came while watching the 2006 FIFA World Cup, and later I started watching bits of club football. My connection to Chelsea grew gradually after that and my love for the club strengthened through the years, idolising players like Lampard and Drogba. I was a writer for ChelseaFC360 back in the 2012/13 season, and this is my first venture into writing about Chelsea since. My dream is to visit Stamford Bridge one day.
Gauruv Krishnan – Admin/Author – @gaurav_krishnan
My Journey with Chelsea started after my Dad brought me a Chelsea jersey when I was 10, despite him having no clue about the club or football in general. It was Bombay, India in 2000. I used to train for school in that blue jersey which I loved and Chelsea became my team. I started watching and supporting Chelsea when I was 13 after watching Gianfranco Zola win Chelsea a place in the Champions League against Liverpool in 2003 and later watching Eidur Gudjohnsen, Frank Lampard, Jesper Gronkjaer and co. go all the way to the Champions League semis only to lose against Monaco in the end in 2004. Away from Football I’ve released my debut Electronica EP called ‘Transit.‘ When I’m not making music, I write about football. I still firmly believe Luis Garcia’s goal didn’t cross the line.
