  1. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Brendon Rodgers winning the league manager award is a joke. He was seriously responsible for Liverpool not winning the title this year with his mad tactics. It's embarrassing how he played into Jose's hand at Anfield when he just needed a draw to secure Liverpool's first title in god knows how many years. Hearing his post match conference you just knew that he has lost it and that Liverpool are just going to implode. And that capitulation against crystal palace - I just couldn't believe they were trying to make up the goal difference on City. Absolutely Hilarious. Over the years we have all laughed at the annual implode festival at Emirates, but this one, with three games to go, has to be the all time favorite.

    But the article says Inter want a top striker.
  3. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Two big horses. One small horse and a chihuahua. It's really a jungle out there.
  4. Media / Press

    "Outside he remains the villain; inside, within the ramparts of Chelsea, he revels in the love he craves, the love of the fans and of the team’s old soldiers such as Lampard and Terry, who may know that he is a son of a bitch, but they don’t care, because he is their son of a bitch." Just imagining how much he must hate Mourinho made me laugh actually.
  5. Transfer Talk Topic

    I will be surprised if submitting a transfer request does not mean that the player will receive a signing on fee by default from the new club. One of those things that exists but never acknowledged.
  6. Eden Hazard

    I have finally derived an exact number using my complex algorithm which only 3 living people in this world can understand. My number is this : Hazard will get 28.4591% better. Mind you, my algorithm only gives correct number up to 4 decimal places. Make of it what you want.
  7. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Anyone knows for sure if it's live on youtube? I read somewhere it will be delayed by 15 minutes due to restrictions by Chelsea.
  8. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    Exactly. I just wonder if he has toned down a little bit. It would be a shame if he has. Well will find out in a couple of months I guess.
  9. Jose Mourinho (Leaves For The Second Time)

    I was just watching Mourinho's first classico (the 5-0 loss) and the game reinforced my notion that what a dirty club Barcelona are and how that aspect of their 'philosophy' is never written about in the press. Guardiola tying to provoke Ronaldo, Pique showing 5 fingers to the Madrid bench, the players constantly pressuring the referee etc. But I guess Madrid succumbing to the pro Barca press turned out to be great for us.
  10. Non Chelsea: Champions League

    I just read wenger's interview where he expressed his unhappiness over Chelsea's Europa league success. He may have meant that as a thinly veiled snipe at us but I agree with him. I have never been able to wrap my head around this rule. Why should anyone get a shot at glory after failure to get past even the group stage of CL. The EL winners automatic qualification for CL will certainly make the dynamics more interesting. It will raise the stakes and teams will start to take this competition seriously. It will give more qualification options to teams like Spurs and Everton and on rare occasions to big clubs who might be under performing in their leagues.

  15. Official: Torres Makes Milan Move Permanent

    I agree with Bert19's post and hope you too realize that he wouldn't have been a better choice than mata. He was absolutely correctly not included in the list of penalty takers for that shootout. The penalty shootout was to decide whether we win the final or not so yeah it mattered and it mattered even more who would take the fifth kick if it ever came down to that. He just needed to STFU and not put his team mates under more pressure by acting like he did at that time. Ofcourse I am angry at RDM's sacking and yeah in my head torres shoulders some part of the blame for that. But do I dislike torres because of what happened to RDM now? Nah it started way back. I wouldn't even have disliked him if it was just his poor play. We have had so many players before him who haven't clicked at Chelsea. Kalou, Bsingwa, Sheva etc. Sometimes they work sometimes they don't, but it's his pathetic attitude and his 24x7 non stop sulk that makes him so pungent. As I said, I don't give a tiny rat's a** about him and I just wish him gone.
