Michael Essien in The Chelsea Forum Posted December 7, 2005 · Report reply As usual, the press has made a big issue of it. Yes it was a bad tackle and I am not denying it. But Patrick Vieira and Roy Keane have done them many times and did not have their name in the back pages! Essien will need to spoken to by Jose as I am sure we all do not want to see that again, but it's good to have someone with a bit of steel. He just need to be a little less agressive, only just a little less.
