  1. You still on planet Earth Ove?

  2. Michael Essien

    I remember reading a story about Essien and his father in the Guardian a while back. I googled for it and it's called The rise and rise of Michael Essien, in which there's mentioned something about his relationship with his father: Lots of people have problematic relationships with their parents, so Essien certainly wouldn't be the first one. It's a terribly one-sided story about a difficult family situation that the Sunday Mirror really shouldn't have run with. Credit to the radio journalist in Ghana that refused to take advantage of the situation.
  3. Didier Drogba

    Drogba has just signed a new contract while Frank Lampard hasn't. Lampard already has a contract that's worth more than our PL top scorer and I'm sure the club would be perfectly happy to extend his contract on the same terms. These players are clearly trying to get the most out of their playing careers financially. But thinking that Lampard is "desperate to stay and commit his future to Chelsea" when he's not put pen to paper, while slating Drogba for not being loyal enough when he already has signed a contract, frankly doesn't make much sense.
  4. Michael Essien

    Please get back on topic.
  5. Michael Essien

    Perhaps that is taking it a little too far. Even if he's not playing tomorrow, then he's still available against Bolton this week-end, isn't he? Staying up until five in the morning can't be good. I wonder if he'd got permission for that. I remember the case with Eidur that sambo referred to, at that time it was mentioned that the players were under instruction to get to bed at reasonable hours so they'd get enough rest and be ready for training and matches. This is a crucial part of the season for us after all.
  6. John Terry

    When Ballack was signed, there were reports that Terry and Lampard would be given better contracts. Even before that there were reports of them already making 80-90k per week. However, according to information in this new article from The Times: That contradicts previous information. For instance, this Times article dated July 27, 2006, says: These articles have been written by different journalists, but still. Obviously, we've either been misinformed before or the journalists are getting it wrong now. Last alternative I can think of is that the 80-90k figures mentioned originally include bonuses, while the 67k per week for Terry is only his basic salary.
  7. New Kits

    Just like the Swedish national football team then.
  8. I play hardly any football at all nowadays, same for the running. I've become a regular couch potato! :)

  9. Nice to someone who`s left a comment...You play fotball? wich club?(since we live in the same town)

  10. You're one of the most knowledgeable, analytical and witty writers on the entire board! You should post more often! :)

  11. Running? People enjoy running?!

    Sigh. At least you like Sting, Chelsea and history, which works for me.

  12. "I don't think Shevchenko's selfish. He gives the ball quite kindly to the opposition alot." - Good one! :)

  13. Thanks for the comment Ove. It is much appreciated. Enjoy a Rum & Coke on me at some point ;)

  14. You're one of the modders extraordinaire on the site Pete, keep up all the good work! :)

  15. You're a night owl, aren't you, Harry? Only a chronic insomniac like myself could ever spot it! ;)
