  1. Michael Essien

    Surprised that because of one great season in France, he has become some people's saviour. That's how we got Mutu after one great season in Itlay and after a couple of good performances for Chelsea, became useless. Before you know it, someone is going to list Bastia as his previous club as if he led them to win the French Ligue. I personally don't want him!
  2. Didier Drogba

    The next news we might read is that Jose Mourinho is will be a part-time coach at Barnet FC. As for Drogba, he better prove himself next season and rest enough during his holidays. No more excuses...

    quote:Originally posted by Nerazzuriquote:Originally posted by Michael Tucker1. Jose also initially said that he wasn't at any meeting with Cole. Jose says lots of things, doesn't he?

The reason is simple and goes thusly: being innocent, and being found innocent are two completely different things. If we are completely innocent, yet believe that the FA will find us guilty, then we must proceed with negotiations just as we would if we were in fact guilty. It's not fair, but that's life. id="quote"> id="quote">I will response to question 1 due to the ladies football currently on TV. Jose said he was in Milan speaking to Adriano and then later admitted he was joking but he OPENLY said on Sky Sports that he was NEVER at the meeting and has only met the player on the pitch. This is a fact.

  5. Didier Drogba

    Interesting piece no doubt and Simon Jordan should mind his business but if we didn't want to sign Ashley Cole, why attend the meeting? Doesn't copying Arnesen in an email tantamount to inducement as the U10 rules clearly state? Just wondering...

    quote:Originally posted by basolequote:Originally posted by helen elseBasole you are right I would prefer SWP, to Essien, but Jose likes tall players and he is more interested in having another lump in the middle. SWP probably too small and too exciting for Jose. Essien is a good player, better than Tiago and Jarosik, so will be an improvement. Your comments on younger strikers is right, Adriano is too expensive. id="quote"> id="quote"> Nice to agree with Helen, but not quite. African player usually carry alot of promise when young but fade before their 26th birthday. European players usually dont look the real deals when young but go on improving. Thats one of the reasons why Afrcan youth teams win youth world cups but fail to get to a semifinal of the senior world cup. Lampard Vs Nii Lamptey - Lamps was called fat while Lamptey was voted better than Ronaldo in the youth tournaments.Where is Lamptey now? Vicente wasnt known at 19 while players like Pius Ikedia had the world at their feet. Players like Pirlo were not known when they were 20 by the world while players like Wilson Oruma were the real deals, but who knows Oruma now? The examples are many, but I will use these for now. I can bet that by his 27th birthday Essien will be playing for teams like Portsmouth while Tiago will be in Chelsea or Barca. id="quote"> id="quote">basole, well said and your examples are very germane. The list of African players who in most cases HARDLY ever declare their correct ages is embarassing compared to their European counterparts. The truth is that they do not last enough probably with exception to Osei Kuffour who has just signed for AS Roma. I agree with your submission...

Tiago has scored 4 League goals same as Vieira so it is fair to say that we give players a chance and so far, Essien has been a one season wonder!

  11. Chelsea Finances Thread

    Some of these stories will never end and the truth surrounding them will never be known. Not surprisingly, most are utter nonsense just like the article by Evening Standard. Anybody bored yet as there is no football and I scramble now to watch the ladies play? Sure... This is an article CLEARLY out of boredom, pettiness and a depressed footballing market. Yes! depressed because there is just no Premiership, Scudetto, La Liga or French Ligue on TV to occupy such prosaic elements as Chris Blackhurst. Personally, I do not believe any of these stories and I would love to confront him to name names. I mean anybody can just come up with a load of baloney for public consumption or attention. OK! If we give him any benefit of doubt and questionable credence, don't people bargain? Isn't part of business submiting a quotation for an item one likes? Isn't Irina Abramovich entitled to try her luck? Can't Chelsea's entourage to Old Sadford be privileged to use their mobile phones during half time or full time? For crying out loud, I use mine during half and full times to communicate and need not to take permission from the likes of Chris. Be it in the bar or toilet. It's not arrogance but human freedom at one's own expense and this should not be any headache for any redundant observer. I chose not to buy Evening Standard anymore and read it via the net when home instead. This saves me 40p from reading random musings of self-righteous men like Chris. We live in a bargaining world while the author lives in an ideal world. That's the reason reality supercedes fantasy. Poor poor Chris...

  13. Frank Arnesen

    The signs don't really look good. I mentioned Spurs throwing us over to the other side of the river. Is £5m to much to pay and get ourselves out of this trouble? I really don't know anymore and may comment later. Please read http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/4616169.stm
  14. Frank Arnesen

    Well, I had said yesterday that Spurs are bound to take advantage of us just like we want to take advantage of them. It was not far-fetched but we need to pray that after all the hanky-panky from them which we cannot say is undeserved, they do not throw us over the other bank of the river where those with brandishing knives will be waiting to slaughter us. I personally do not know much of Daniel Levy but I cannot describe him as vindictive or parochial. I only see him fighting on behalf of the oppressed with a lot of support from the opposition, haters and even the neutrals. They have surely gathered and ganged up against us in unison with strong idiosyncrasies against Chelsea. To them, this is a good chance of putting to end our lovely dreams of English & European domination. They want to force our knees to bend and then rip us apart. No no no... that will not succeed and instead it will be counter productive. We shall overcome these days of gloom and keep embracing the days of boom. But at what expense? It will have to be at the expense of behaving properly and avoiding all this commotion. We should be thinking of signing players and not engaging or negotiating legal entanglements. Frank Arnensen is on his way to Chelsea but before that takes place, we have to keep our eyes on the News and sleep with one eye open. A fall-out of mistaken judgements and ill-advice. A product of pushing our luck too far. A thinking emanating from we can invade and then escape any serious wrath before daylight. Now the price is getting heavy and we are breathing deeply. Tottenham are now in control for the next few days or hours. A surrender made possible by Chelsea Limited. As if this would help, please read http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/4616169.stm. The waiting game continues...

    quote:Originally posted by HamerKenn you're completely misrepresenting the transfer of Arnesen between PSV and Tottenham. Quite frankly comparing that transfer to this one is a carnard as you're making up history. Firsly Frank Arnesen's role at PSV was being eliminated at PSV Summer 2004 in which a sole manager covering all aspects of the club was replacing the existing 'continental' system. This was well known by Christmas 2003 and Arnesen made it known he was considering retirement. Spurs secured Arnesen's services 18th/19th of June 2004: http://www.spurs.co.uk/article.asp?hlid=20...f+Frank+Arnesen PSV weren't unhappy, the deal wasn't 'messy'- it was perfectly amicable given that Arnesen was due to depart PSV that summer anyway given he was effectivly being made redundant. You're making things up in order to draw a false parallel to what is going on now. You're right, the sale of Kezman was the last thing Arnesen did for PSV before he started work for Tottenham but the only thing it's proof of is that in your haste to justify Chelsea's actions you haven't bothered to research properly. id="quote"> id="quote">I think Kenn is right! If you read the link that you have attached, it states that Frank Arnesen would commence as the Director of Football at Tottenham from July 1st, 2004. The date of the announcement was made on the 19th of May, 2004. Therefore, the transfer date of Kezman on June 30th does not appear to be contradicted.

    quote:Originally posted by Blue JockFrank Arnesen is a director of Tottenham Hotspur plc, just as Peter Kenyon was a director of Manchester United plc. Recruitment of plc directors happens and, when itdoes, if the current employer is concerned about confidentiality etc, they put them on garden leave, as, indeed MU did with Kenyon. Had Spuds wanted to keep Arnesen immune from the market for plc directors, it shouldn't have put him on the board, but should have kept him on the football management team. Then, their claim under FA rules may have had some validity. But he was put on the Board and that makes him subject to another set of rules entirely. They are called Companies Law and Stock Exchange rules. This is a storm in a teacup (the only kind of cup that Spuds could find at WHL). id="quote"> id="quote">Could you please review this link again and shed more light?

    Andy1, Your choice of words in calling the Chelsea management crooks is pathetic and insulting. I find it repulsive and offensive as well and would advice you to stop making silly comments like that and sensibly address your grievance. I do not know what dreams your club has in winning the premiership, but it must be a ten year dream at least. By then, we may have won it 7-8 times and you will discover how hollow you are. Hope this has nothing to do with Holloway being close to 3 points lane?

This is one trouble too many and either way you look at it objectively, we are burning bridges and fast winning enemies than friends. A pauper's delight! id="quote"> id="quote"> You may indeed be right, Hernan Crespo, but the fact remains that Chelsea are in a no win situation. You are damned if you do and damned if you don’t. Let’s be clear here, we are not tapping up players; we are accused of illegally approaching a staff of another club via copying him in on a letter to his Board about our intentions to approach him. We were asking the Board’s permission and we were copying Arnesen in on it. The question is how you interpret our action of copying in Arnesen and how these relate to Rule U10. Is there any intention on Chelsea’s part, in the way and manner they’ve conducted themselves in this affair to suggest that they intended or did indeed induce Arnesen in the language of Rule U10? When you’re at the top, they’d all want a piece of you; what can you do? Chelsea is blazing trails within this industry that would only earn its respects in retrospect. The nature of our ambition as a club is not nihilist, but freedom-oriented. Take the Ashley Cole issue for instance. Rule change is on the agenda because of it. Chelsea are championing that on one hand and they have the support of other clubs. The real story in that whole affair is that Mourinho killed the deal with Cole immediately and it remained dead, until the News of the World and Arsenal saw a worthy carcass within. We have been fined, Mourinho has been fined; but we will appeal. Cole has his own show with the restriction of trade issue, but apart from saying first off that the punishments do not fit the breach, we are going to question the trailer-load of conjectures in that judgment – conjectures huge enough to build a thousand castles in the air! Well, that’s another matter… id="quote"> id="quote">I agree to large extent that being the big fish, most people filled with jealousy, envy and myopia want a piece of you. But that means that you have to be more careful and in this case, the timimg just ain't right. Our season has been prolonged with too many ......gates! It is absorbing and takes a way a lot of mental and even positive energy from you. It makes the joy temporary and the sadness seemingly unending especially when one sees the fact that most of these could have been avoided!But making one's self vulnerable is no justification for self pity. George Clooney and Brad Pitt may be every ladies dream but these stars are not silly enough to place themselves in any or every susceptible situation. They know they are targets and live cautiously while still making the money and being happy. Roman Abramovich has a vision that we all admire and look forward to but, the Generals are starting too many conflicts that is distracting the smooth actualisation of the dream. Frank Arnesen may be all we need but getting him will need more tact, caution and wisdom. Chelsea Football Club is becoming a Hollywood movie where in different scenes, there is endless anxiety that even the fans are unhappy. Remember, Mourinho was in Milan while the tapping of Cole took place. Kenyon invited Sven Eriksson for coffee out of boredom. Daniel Levy is still angry about Roman Abramovich walking out of Spurs in preference for Chelsea. Eugene Tenebaum is a poet at best via emails. These are just some of the idle scripts to conclude a bad film. Our future depends on the lessons quickly learnt from yesterday!

If we are hated for our on-field achievements, then I can understand but to be viewed as arrogant, bullish and blatantly disrespectful leaves me with pain. Our records are blemished. Our successes overwhelmed. Our trust diluted and our faith shaken. To be objective, you need to ignore the subjective meanings to a situation and the truth is that, we are to blame. Signing Frank Arnesen is not the same as signing Adriano. Engaging his services is not like wwinning the Champions League. To every ambition, there will be limitations but looking beyond the glory is always the hardest part. This is our bane!

    Kenn, That was the longest piece that I have ever read here! Gosh! Anyway, very good points made though but the end will justify the means in all this unending and expensive jokes. Take a minute to think about this. Why is Wayne Rooney always in trouble and Joe Cole is never in trouble? Why are the activities of Ronaldo, Robben, Huth and many other youngsters not highlighted as Rooney? Is he a soft target or does he make himself vulnerable to these accusations? Could the antecedents be unfairly used to judge his future? This could just be hypothetical but theories defy this logic. Just wondering...

    quote:Originally posted by THFCforeverRules are rules. Whether Kenyon etc agree with them or not, they are in place and as with the rest of the PL, Chelsea have to adhere to them. When Chelsea sent the first letter to Spurs about Arnesen and copied it to Arnesen, they knew full well that they were breaking the rules. They complete disrespect to the league and arrogance which your club are showing is astounding. After the whole Rio thing, then the Frisk thing, then Cole and now this, is it your clubs aim to become the most hated team in the Premier League? If your team aren't going to abide by the rules then you should be thrown out of the league. The Guardian says that Chelsea have offered £5m compensation although Spurs are asking for more. However this issue is bigger than this. Kenyon can't be allowed to flagrently break the rules and then think he can just write a cheque to put things right. What will the PL do? 3, 5, 10 points deduction? This probably isn't enough. Swindon were relegated 2 divisions a few years ago for breaking rules so gven the deliberate and repeated way you have abused the system this time, Chelsea playing against Plymouth etc in teh Championship next season on Saturdays has to be a possibility. You guys should be ashamed at your club. The whole Premier League hates you and your clubs management are ruining a club which, a few years ago, had a decent name. id="quote"> id="quote">I should ashamed of my club?
