  1. Frank Lampard: Legend.

    I too am moved. SFL our greatest ever IMO. A model pro of the highest highest quality. A footballer supreme. Up there with best, which he was at one point during his career. Also a thoroughly decent, intelligent and amusing human being. Loved him.
  2. Frank Lampard Breaks Chelsea's All Time Scoring Record (#210)

    SFL. Not only our top goalscorer, but our greatest ever player. Truly a superb professional, in every aspect. Doesn't he also hold the record for (outfield player) games on the bounce? About 168 I think . I bow to him and like MT above urge the board to resign him. He brings so much more than "just" goals.
  3. John Terry

    To those who question why I think JT is a role model. Lads, John is a very lucky and priveleged lad.He blessed with a talent for playing footballer. he's not the worlds greatest footballer, unlike George Best was of his time. He not even the worlds greatest defender. He is though a very fine centre back who has done very well with the ability he has been given. he's been very wel rewarded for those abilities, through his wages and through endorsements, sponsorships etc. I do not begrudge him a single penny. In the end though the ultimate people who pay his wages are us, the paying punters, Be it through season tickets, match day tickets, sky subscriptions, shirt purchases, mugs whatever. Our children look up to him. They do, footballers are the modern day Gods. That may not be fair, and perhaps we expect to much of them. I would except all that. But and its a big but, if footballers take the rewards, then they also have to shoulder the responsibilities that go with it. You cannot have one without the other. The responsibilities are to behave reasonably. In fact we are charged with that, but footballers are in the spotlight. John is serial shagger. He been caught with his trousers down bollock deep up his mates bird. He then trys to buy her off and use his wealth to supress the storey. he's behaved like a numpty in opinion. It also raises question in my mind as to why JT didn't go to City last Autumn. Was it because of his love of Chelsea- I hope it was- or was it because he couldn`t face the thought of looking Wayne in the eye everyday.
  4. John Terry

    JT is a role model to many, despite claims to the contrary. he's England and Chelsea`s captain. Iconic roles. Because of his position he attracts sponsorship and publicity, from which he does very nicely. Just like with Tiger, those sponsors will be reconsidering their positions this morning. John has let himself down and brought bad publicity on himself, our club and the England captain. Even if most the criticism is hypocritical, which all in all fairness it is, it still reflects poorly on John and his self control. He has young children and a wife. I feel very sad for them this morning,.They must be feeling their world has collapsed around them.For that, there is only one person to blame.
  5. John Terry

    If he wasn`t guilty of shagging a mates wife, why would he try to ban it. Nothing despicable about the NOTW outing him, he's Chelsea`s and Englands captain, he a role model, does very nicely because of his position and just like Tiger he cannot have it both way. John is has been rules but his dick, like many before and many after, shouldn`t have done it with Bridgers bird though should.Not good..
  6. Chelsea Finances Thread

    Well I think the press are onto something, even if they are only sniffing at the momenmt. I love the British Press, they are disrespectful and pitbullish. Without doubt, Romans wealth has decreased in the credit crunch, to what extent, I don`t know. Russia as a country has seen many of it assests go down the plughole, oil & gas have halfed in price and have further to go. Its recent bullying of the Ukraine is a sign of weakness and not strength. Is Roman a seller of CFC. Yes at the right price imo.
  7. John Terry

    Good goal and we got the result, but I'm afraid he was at fault for their goal. That there was indecision between Carson & JT there can be no doubt- whose is to blame for that indecision I'm not so sure about. But as there was indecision and doubt, then JT should made a decision taken responsibilty and belted it into row Z. So, yeah, it was his fault.
  8. Happy Birthday, Paul!

    Best of luck!

  9. John Terry

    Gaunty is a marvel, the second coming and the saviour of England. If you see him, kiss his feet.
  10. Didier Drogba

    Top Drog The indisputable leader of the gang He's the boss He's the best He's a championship He's the most tip top - Top Drog With apologies to Hannah & Barbera.
  11. Didier Drogba

    I love the big fella (the Drogs that is, not Droy, just to clear up any possible confusion) Haven`t always, but he's grown on me. Yes he has faults, yes he's a prima donna. But aren`t top stars supposed to be flighty and emotional and unreasonable at times. You have to take the rough with the smooth, the sweet & sour of life. The combination that goes behind any good meal. And Drogs without doubt is a la carte. A Raymond Blanc recipe of exquisite fine dining and well worth the price and the occasional frustration, that is all part of the make up of top draw. Top Drog.
  12. Didier Drogba

    I think this thread should be re named "Stand up for the Drogs. I am phissed off with the criticism he receives about him allegedly diving. What a lot of nonsense. I did not see the big man dive once last night. I did see him though get pushed and pulled around.I did see him fight for the ball with back to goal and try to be the spear point at the front of our attack. I did see him him making himself available as an out ball to his colleagues all game long. I did see him back defending and rallying the troops. I did see him being a superb sportsman, without a hint of malice in him. I refuse to criticise the man. I refuse to do the oppositions fans job for them, I refuse to dance their tune. "Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone" Well miss him when he's gone.
  13. Didier Drogba

    Course he is selfish and hallelujah for that. All top strikers need the arrogance and belief , the ego to believe they are capable of scoring-they need to keep trying. Alright , he didn`t score last night, but I'm not going to start pointing finger at him and moaning because it didn`t come off. Anyway, have you ever seen a top striker work as hard as the big man does in defense for us. At one point last night in the second half he tackled back deep within our half, on East stand side. Playing wise he's doing nothing wrong imo.
  14. Didier Drogba

    As everyone else, he has to play for numerous reasons. 1/ His line leading 2/ He`s a targetman/out ball 3/ He, more than anyone, keeps the scouse defence honest 4/ Goal scoring threat (one goal up there, means they have to score three to go through...very tough) 5/ Liverpool are not able to fully handle him 6/ he's one of the leaders within the team. 7/ Last, but by no means least...his defensive capabilities. he's vital to our set piece/corner kick defending. Not only is he vital, he`s bloody excellent at it. I'm afraid no player at this stage can be wrapped in cotton wool. Every game is vital.Bill Blood and his team are now probably the busiest people at the club.....its a team game.
  15. Michael Essien

    Whilst sympathising for your loss, on what basis do you come to the judgement that Michael is a Moron. Also while agreeing the drink driving is unacceptable, one also hopes you never speed or run a red light. Those in glass houses. I will be disappointed with him, IF & when he is found guilty. It is worth noting that the police are not the prosecuting authorities in the UK, neither are they Juries, Judges or even Magistrates. Lets just pass over a fundamental right that finds it origins in the Magna Carta just because of ones own prejudices.
