  1. Favourite Chelsea Matches

    Brown was one of the dirtiest players in Premier league history.
  2. Favourite Chelsea Matches

    Watched the 30-min BT Sport version last night. The highlights did not do justice to our defensive efforts, and Mikel and Bosingwa, who were instrumental in the win, barely featured at all, and Bertrand was barely ever in shot. For me the defensive highlight was Cahill throwing himself at a cross that was on a plate for Gomez to convert. He barely got there but did just enough to prevent what would have been the winning goal for Bayern. And Cech was utterly fantastic. The BBC website columnist Phil McNulty reckons Drogba's Munich performance was one of the best individual displays he's ever witnessed. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/52689386

    Andy Carroll had probably the best 15 minutes of his career.

    I'm pretty sure Manure have walked away with the VAR title. They certainly jumped ahead with their VAR -victory at the Bridge, with about 6 decisions in their favour that night.

    Talking of which: https://www.theguardian.com/football/video/2020/may/06/andres-iniesta-calls-children-born-because-of-his-goal-against-chelsea-in-2009-video Strangely, the paper omits to call them Ovrebo babies.
  7. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    Worth watching Aldridge at the end. Maybe I'm being unfair, but I remember thinking at that time he'd have had some perspective, just a few weeks after Hillsborough.
  8. Media / Press

    The article should have done far more to highlight the way Terry was ruthlessly singled out and victimised by the tabloids. Having stated both at the beginning and end of the piece that there was no basis for the whole Terry-Bridge story, it mentions that his father was the victim of a sting but fails to make clear that the tour-of-Cobham story was itself a sting, in which the NotW did its utmost to entrap Terry into pocketing the cash they were offering. But Terry himself took no money, and the Make a Wish charity confirmed the middle man passed on the cash, and that Terry had worked with them previously. Talk about a pattern of disgraceful press conduct. And of course the rest of the media all joined in, ruining his reputation for ever, wrecking his England career, and doing everything in their power to wreck his Chelsea career - and of course to undermine the club's on field success by going after its captain. That is the real story here, but reading this article you would barely notice. Edit: The NotW story is here: https://forum.insidesport.com.au/Topic619395.aspx They stated they had been 'investigating' Terry for two months prior to that, which shows the lengths they were prepared to go to entrap him as they had done his father. Note at the end how the 'middle man' who arranged the Cobham tour offered to do the same at Liverpool, Arsenal, Man U and Tottenham. But of course nothing ever came of that as they were only interested in nailing Terry.

    The Guardian did a minute-by-minute of the game last month. Well worth reading: https://www.theguardian.com/football/live/2020/mar/21/chelsea-v-leeds-united-1970-fa-cup-final-replay-live
  10. Taking The Pee Out Of Liverpool (For Khobar)

    I've heard a rumour that the FA and BT Sport are planning to lobby UEFA to get the match erased from the record books as it should never have been played.

    To be fair, 4-0 wins against Spuds weren't exactly rare.

    I definitely remember him being linked with Liverpool that season. And I've got a vague memory of him saying Liverpool were his favourite English team growing up.

    So if we can't play our away leg in Munich before then...

    Couldn't stand him. Was speechless when we appointed him and the fact he made zero effort to get the fans behind him told me everything about his motivation for taking the job. It was never about what he could do for us, but all about using the club to further his career.

    No arguments from me there.
