About

Hi there, I'm Alan and from September 2008-December 2009 I was the Co-Leader of the Chelsea community alongside Salomon Gonzales. I am now a Chelsea Featured Columnist.

I'm a 20-year-old die-hard Chelsea fan and season ticket holder (I sit in the West Lower) from London.

I'm currently studying Journalism at the University of Kent, and loving student life.

My ambition is to become a journalist and writing on this site combines two of my passions: football and writing. I discovered this site via an advertisement on Facebook in the summer of 2008 and I'm glad I took the time to sign up.

I mainly write articles about Chelsea, but also occasionally on other Premier League teams. At the moment I'm finding my time to write articles cut short by University commitments, but I'll try to contribute when I can.

My first Chelsea game was on 28th October 1998 against Aston Villa, a game which Chelsea won 4-1 and John Terry made his first team debut. My favourite Chelsea memory is seeing the club win the Premiership in 2005, something which I never thought I'd see the club do.

Its hard to pick my favourite game I've been to, but three stand out: the 4-4 draw with Liverpool in the Champions League Quarter Finals last season, the 3-2 Semi Final Second Leg the season before, and the 2-1 victory over Valencia at the Mestalla in 2007.

My worst nights as a Chelsea fan were at Anfield when we lost on penalties in 2007 and the Champions League final in Moscow.

I have my own website and blog where I post my work: http://alanmcguinness.com.

    Our Unbeaten home record was ended by Liverpool a few years ago. But can anyone keep a home record for 86-premier League games.

    Hey Alan,

    The inevitable has happened... the UWCC title has gone to a team I have trouble spelling the name of in a league I know nothing about... at least I've heard of the team though, and they're well known throughout the world...

    Roma lost the title to Panathinaikos last night in the Europa League, but it's not all bad news! The match was a thriller with three goals and a penalty in the last ten minutes, as well as a last minute winner from a familiar face!

    It also contained a wonderful goal from Vucinic (see that highlights included for that screamer) and a substitue scoring with their first touch on two different occasions!

    Also included in the article are Roma title reign stats, which stand up against the very best there has ever been!

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/348577-roma-conquered-as-panathinaikos-become-the-new-best-side-in-the-world

    The UWCC needs YOU!

    Cheers,
    Barney
