    What a pity Clattenburg didn't take "the good of the game" into account when he was sending off Ivanovic and Torres for much lesser offences against the Mancs at the Bridge in 2012. Truth is he was a mediocre ref in the tradition of Graham Poll, more interested in preening for the cameras and fluffing up his own ego than the good of the game.
  2. Media / Press

    Ridiculously over the top coverage of West Ham leaving Upton Park (when did it become the "Boleyn Ground"?), a middling also ran club that most people don't give a damn about. Martin Tyler's commentary was cringeworthy ("the last substitution at the Boleyn Ground..."). Still it was quite appropriate that their biggest claim to fame, their hooligans, are what everyone will remember about their last game at Upton Park.

    Or when Spackman slapped him and he collapsed like he'd been hit by Mike Tyson. What credibility can he have when talking about diving, cheating or thuggery (other than it takes one to know one)?

    Remember near the end of the Slippy Me game when the camera panned across the crowd showing Carragher, Rush and all the gang looking like they were sucking on lemons? Loved it.
  5. Chelsea Finances Thread

    The entire Eurobond wasn't due. It was a £9m installment which we were struggling to pay off. While it wasn't a great situation, it wasn't doomsday either. The fact that we'd just qualified for the Champions League would certainly have helped.

    Napoli finished 2nd the season before he arrived and they were in the Champions League. He's left them in 5th and in the Europa League after spending the better part of €150m in the last two years. Another great job well done. Madrid are welcome to him.

    Even worse is constantly hearing what a great job he did here... grrrr.
  8. Transfer Talk Topic

    And the less said about the following season the better. Failed to score in 17 out of 20 games, wasn't it?

    What else would you expect from the bloke who tried to replace Xabi Alonso with Gareth Barry.... Before these Madrid rumours started the biggest club to show an interest in him was West Ham.

    I think it was more by accident than design. Years back we went mad for Belgians, Lukaku, De Bruyne and so on. It just so happened that the biggest success turned out to be in a position where we least needed improvement. I'm also in the Cech camp, though I admit I can understand the club's rationale, going for the guy who has 15 years left over the one who probably has 5. I'm just worried Cech will do a Pat Jennings on us.
  11. Frank Lampard: Legend.

    They do have a thing about signing other clubs' legends: Lampard, Schmeichel, Vieira, Fowler. Odds on a Gerrard loan move there next season? Back to the topic, that Lampard send off should have been at the Bridge. I wonder if he felt a pang of regret when he saw the send off for Drogba. It could have been him too.

    Apparently it dates back to an away game in the 80s, against Watford iirc. En route to the ground the fans took a detour through some allotments laden with celery, a food fight inevitably ensued, and the tradition grew from there.

    Liverpool were languishing in Division 2 when John Moores, owner of Littlewoods Pools, took an interest and started investing his millions. Currently, they're owned by a consortium of billionaire American hedge fund managers and investment bankers who have given Rodgers £200m to spend (waste) in the last 3 years.

    Diego looked like he was having fun with the celery!

    Collymore played for a number of clubs in the Premier League over a number of years. He reached 15 league goals in a season once. Delusional? Rose-tinted memory? He played for the right club. There's a good reason why Collymore is primarily remembered as 'the footballer who punched Ulrika', 'the footballer who got caught dogging' and more recently as a Twitter and radio troll. He doesn't exactly have a huge list of on-pitch accomplishments to brag about.
