OZIL MotM yet again Ratings v Palace
The first half was a perfect response to our rubbish start to the year as we went 4-0 up in 22 minutes, but normal service was resumed in the second half where we started sloppily and seemed almost determined to give Palace a way back into the game.

A Fine Little Scoring Spree
Both Arsenic and Chelsea warmed up for their midweek cup decider with four goals in their emphatic wins over Eagles and Seagulls. Chelsea managed to record a winter double over hapless Brighton to the tune of a six-nil aggregate. This match on the south coast was a little peculiar in that it didn't feel like a four-nil. The English champions stormed into a two-nil lead within the first eight minutes, courtesy of fine strikes by the in-form Hazard and Willian. Then for much of the remainder of this encounter, the visitors soaked up a fair degree of pressing from the hosts who frequently prevented Chelsea from passing the ball out from the back and from stringing about four passes together.

Away We Go
Our unbeaten home record went and now we have to travel in the quarter final of the Challenge Cup. However, there can be no complaints that Pau did not deserve their 34-24 win which kept them at the top of the pool.
Player Survey: La Rochelle vs Harlequins
A gallant attempt by the team. At one time it looked like we might actually snatch victory. In the end it was too much to ask of a scratch team. So, how did the players do?
Well that was one way of progressing to the fourth round. Impotent Chelsea contrived to deliver only one goal in two hours at home to mediocre Norwich City and consequently were subjected to the ordeal of penalty kicks, when they ought to have put the contest to bed long before. It's not that the hosts were woeful, because they were not. However, the visitors produced another well-marshalled display of packing their defence and proving troublesome on the counter. In fact, the home team were receiving a dose of their own medicine. Frankly speaking, Norwich deserved that last-gasp equaliser, because they made a big contribution to a compelling contest.

Williams Martini 2017 Season Review
Well it's that time to look back at the Williams Martini teams 2017 season, a difficult and ultimately disappointing one. The team would finish in fifth place in the Constructors having dropped from third. It was a year that saw not only the 2017 FW40 fail to deliver but overall neither team driver, Felipe Massa and Lance Stroll, would have a season that really would be remembered. The only real highlight was the third placed finish from Stroll in Azerbaijan combined with his second place qualifying in Italy. Apart from that the Williams team really failed to deliver and this showed in that their main midfield rival Force India would finish their 2017 well ahead.
Abu Dhabi GP: Single point for Massa in his last race
The 2017 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix would see the Williams Martini team come away with a single point courtesy of a 10th places finish from Felipe Massa. A great result for Felipe was his Formula One career comes to an end. For team-mate Lance Stroll his race was far more difficult not been able to get the best from his car and been forced to pit three times. Williams would be able to finish their season in fifth in the Constructors championship after what was overall a difficult season. Felipe would come on his radio and thank his team and would complete some donuts in his FW40 to celebrate his career in Formula One.
Abu Dhabi GP: Massa 10th for Williams Martini in qualifying
Qualifying for the 2017 Abu Dahbi GP would see the Williams Martini team achieve a 10th place from Felipe Massa. Team-mate Lance Stroll would only manage 15th in what was a difficult session for the rookie. But for Felipe this result was a fantastic way for the Brazilian to see out his last Formula One qualifying. For the Williams team to get one car into the final period of qualifying was a great result but it will now come down to Sunday's race looking to finish 2017 in 5th position.
Abu Dhabi GP: Mixed FP3 for Williams Martini
The final practice session for the Williams Martini team would again see neither driver make it into the top ten. Felipe would be in 11th while team-mate Lance Stroll was well down the order in 17th. Lance was a massive 1.2 seconds off Felipe's time as he continued to make basic mistakes. If he had not have run wide on his simulation lap he would have finished much higher. For Fellipe his time was the smallest fraction outside a top ten time so the final period of qualifying is a possibility.
