Meet the Team

Here’s our incredible team of admins and writers who work their socks off every day! Feel free to contact us or any of the writers.

Paree

Owner

Hi, I’m Paree, the guy on the left of the picture! I have been supporting the club for over 10 years and ever since just fallen in love with the Blues. I started supporting Chelsea because my friend told me to do so, and I couldn’t have made a better choice! You can find me writing articles, editing and producing podcasts, and tweeting some waffle on The Chelsea Spot! I also like to do some data analysis here and there, as well as a few edits.

I’m a passionate football fan who loves to play, watch, analyse and discuss the game, with a particular interest in youth football and development. I’m also a grassroots referee and budding coach. Been supporting Chelsea since I can remember and I’m regularly in attendance at Stamford Bridge with the odd away game when I can get tickets! You can usually find me hosting The Chelsea Spot Podcast, tweeting about Chelsea academy graduates scoring in the Dutch second division or on a football pitch in some capacity.

I’m a coach currently working my way through grassroots football with the aim of making it professionally. I co-founded and helped launch The Chelsea Spot and you’ll find me mainly on the podcast where I feature regularly, usually arguing with Orlando.

Tomas Black

Admin

Hi, I’m Tom and I’m one of the admins at The Chelsea Spot. I began supporting Chelsea through my dad, but also through some of the “old guard” like Terry, Drogba and of course Frank Lampard. I’m currently studying football and hoping to study sports performance analysis from next year onwards!

Danny New

Writer

Hi, I’m Danny New and I’m Manchester’s biggest Chelsea fan. I began supporting Chelsea in the wake of the 2006 World Cup after being inspired by my idol, Didier Drogba. I’m currently studying Mechanical Engineering at Uni of Nottingham, but my main passions are backing the mighty Chels and watching Giroud goal compilations on loop. When I’m not writing for The Chelsea Spot or dreaming about Oli’s scorpion kick, I’m in the swimming pool training 7 times a week. I love covering all things Chelsea and hopefully every now and then I write something everyone (except Sarri disciples) enjoys.

Michael Nazarian

Writer

My name is Michael Nazarian and I’m a university graduate who studied Finance and Information Systems. I started supporting Chelsea when I was 10 years old. My eldest brother used to live in London and during my first trip in visiting him there I bought a Chelsea kit and backpack in the airport because I loved the design and colors. Ever since then I’ve been watching Chelsea and football in general. My love for the sport has pushed me to learn about its complexities everyday. I hope to further my understanding in tactical systems and data analytics to apply these concepts in my work for The Chelsea Spot and Breaking the Lines.

Chris O’Flynn

I was born at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital just down the road from Stamford Bridge but moved to Australia when I was 2 years old. In 2011 when I got into football though mates at school I chose Chelsea as my team because of where I was born. I’m currently studying media at university with Sports Journalism as my favourite class so getting to write about my favourite team is perfect. I also do some graphic design work for Soccerscene which u can find @soccersceneau.

Rob Lawman

Writer

Grew up supporting Chelsea due to unhealthy obessession with Gianfranco Zola before falling in love with the team of 1998 and have been a regular at as many first team and youth team games that I could get to ever since. I spend most of my time inbetween matches delving into football analytics and discussing Chelsea with anyone who will listen so could not pass up the opportunity to join this amazing team and share my views on all things Chelsea. As an analyst in my day to day role (although not yet in football!), I always try and bring a balanced mix of opinions and facts to my articles. Slight bias towards vertical football and the academy and I’m still not quite over Gael Kakuta failing to make it here.

Jerry Mancini

Writer

Currently living in Toronto, I graduated from the University of Guelph Humber with a degree in Business Administration. Living in Canada my true passion has always been hockey but in recent years has shifted towards European Football. After my experience at a live match between Southampton and Chelsea at St. Mary’s Stadium, I realized how exciting the game was and the passion fans showed for the game. It grew on me over the course of the match and when I arrived back from my trip I decided to develop my knowledge for the game. This was the moment Chelsea became my club in the Premier League. Since then, I have read numerous books and articles to help grow my understanding that surrounds the game of football.
