    I heard this today and I didn't want to break this news...

    quote:Originally posted by True Blue Garyquote:Originally posted by talalkcExactly... and the fact Gudjohnson and Gallas are there before him is weird. His name will sell more. Even Tiagos is still up there!!!!! id="quote"> id="quote"> What! Tiago! That's criminal! :-D id="quote"> id="quote">TBG, I am the reason Tiago is still up there! Hahaha... I am pulling my strings behind the scenes...
  4. Didier Drogba

    LMAO from Chris three times in one day is questionable. Gronks! please pass the gun as I need to use the remaning bullets in Hong Kong tomorrow...
  5. Didier Drogba

    I don't really know whether to believe this and we have a game tomorrow. In fact, I don't!
  6. Didier Drogba

    I'm a bit reluctant here but I feel those threats are rather empty and said in anger. I don't for one believe that they could harm him after all he has done for them. He scored 2 goals and the defence let them down...
  7. New Kits

    You made me almost pour my drink! OK... I bought my home shirt yesterday and the football shorts as well from the megastore where prices hardly come down to earth. Don't ask me the price coz it's almost £57 in total. I have seen the stripes and it must be some odd design but I love the shirt. Maybe that is why Robben is playing this way. Maybe the stripes are confusing Lampard too...
  8. Michael Essien

    quote:Originally posted by cyrusOld new. This was false rumors that circluated around the time Essien went for trials at Man United. Essien did not sign for Man United because of work permit issues. At the time, he was 17 coming off the World Under 17 championship in New Zealand 99 and could not secure the relevant work permit document. id="quote"> id="quote">Cyrus! Cyrus!! Cyrus!!! How many times was that? THREE. You have come again with this age thingy about Essien which you know that I do not believe it a million times. That notwithstanding, you promised me that you will find time and write something about other Chelsea players and till date, I ONLY read/see your views on Essien. Can I please discuss Hernan Crespo with you? Hahaha...!

    quote:Originally posted by ChrisChelseaI'm sure that was not the reason Manure did not sign Essien. They don't have our resources or manager. Or fans. id="quote"> id="quote">Ah Chris, long time? Anyway, ManYoo do not have fans? I disagree mate in as much as I don't like them, they have a massive fan base even in Asia...
  10. Didier Drogba

    quote:Originally posted by KristinaHmmh, that does not fit into this place of the discussion... But as I'm here anyway, I will 'throw' it in between. The reason why I like Didier Drogba - just apart from his abilities as a striker - is, that he's such a nice soul. The way he talks to his opponents before and after the games and the way he treats them, makes you feel that he is a good guy. When Chelsea was over here for their return match, the team had a saunter in the heart of Munich. Drogba gave €5 to a city vagrant. You might say, that this is not really a big thing and unnecessary to mention, because he is 'not really on the breadline', but my view is slightly different. He perceived this person. The scene was reported by a serious newspaper and I don't doubt it at all, because there were plenty of other people around them. They described it in every detail. It is nice to see that a highly paid football star, like Didier, shows respect for an individual who is not on the sunny side of life. O.K., O.K., that was anything but exciting, I know. But I like these little stories. They show the true nature of a person. You may now carry on with the thread. I'm very generous today. (...do I have to add anything now, to avoid that anybody gets me wrong again...?? ...:&%(!$~§+?/*€@)... that should be enough!!) Bye. id="quote"> id="quote">That was really nice and sweet to read...
  11. Frank Arnesen

    Welcome Frank Arnesen!!! Just like you rightfully spotted Ronaldo, RVN, Arjen Robben and many others, please work with me and basole to ensure that we get the best talents out there. I am eager to stop this frivolous and ridiculous cash spending exercise for average players. See you at Stamford Bridge on Sept 10th. Robin, Why don't let some people just be? Everyone cannot always agree or be the same. basole says his mind and I respect him for that. If you think he is always critising like me, then I feel that you are always eager to criticise him too...

I suggest title "Essien begins". id="quote"> id="quote"> It's gotta be "Taking the Michael." id="quote"> id="quote"> I would call it (wait for it Basole and Hernan) 'Mike and the Mechanics!' Lookin' back, over my shoulder, I can see, Tiago behind........... id="quote"> id="quote"> Ha ha ha ha ha ah!!!!!!!!!!! you are trully creative, and Newcastle could use your services. hernancrespo did you hear whatSouness said? That his team was punished for being sloppy at the back and not being creative. Now where does he expect creativity to come from? He has a midfield of mechanics only. The only non mechanic (Emre)in the team got injured in the 1st half and creativity was put on the shoulders of mechanics like Parker,Bowyer,Carr etc. id="quote"> id="quote">Sure basole I did and how some rated Parker as man of the match baffled me. Yes! some shrewd tackles but offensively nothing to offer barring one long pass that came to nothing. When you have less creative falir players in the middle, the whole team suffers! Poor Luque...
  13. Michael Essien

    quote:Originally posted by kc_blueI thought he played really well. I don't see how him playing well translates into having a go at Tiago though. When he was here Tiago gave his all for the team and put in solid performances. He did what he was asked to do, not playing to his strengths though, and didn't complain. I think he has a great future and wish him the best. And I hope Essien will be a big success for us. id="quote"> id="quote">Nice one and I may have to agree with you here mate! I hope he turns out great but still very early days in my eyes while some see him as the saviour...

Now guys what do you think? This gentleman is good at his trade that is why Chelsea paid that much for him. In my opinion he had an excellent game today. Luck was not on his side, he would have scored a couple of goals. What's your opinion? id="quote"> id="quote"> Welcome to the site! I hope you will posts some more comments. Our friend Basole has been slating off Lampard and Essien lately, so it is nice to see Basole proven wrong once again! Who needs Tiago, aye? I forgotten who he is. id="quote"> id="quote"> Who's Tiago? id="quote"> id="quote">...the sardine that got thrown back in the sea...... id="quote"> id="quote">Absolute nonsense!
  18. Michael Essien

    quote:Originally posted by KalToo early to make a judgement. id="quote"> id="quote">Absolutely... I cannot understand what all the noise is about as if he scored a hat-trick yesterday or did the spectacular. I repeat, power, strength and force never is a replacement for lack of skill. Compare that with Tiago and see the difference and not some stocky player who plays like a bull-dozer!
  19. Michael Essien

    quote:Originally posted by Bazzabluequote:Originally posted by TeRiYaKiquote:Originally posted by basolequote:Originally posted by Adam HargraveHe did play very well. But, does everyone buy that 'dummy'? He was blatantly going for that flashy Cruyff-turn-style finish but missed and nearly fell over... id="quote"> id="quote"> Exactly! Only TBG saw it as a dummy! The only dummy in that move was was YOUR VISION. id="quote"> id="quote"> It looked more like he was trying to flick it on towards them, didn't really look like he was trying to shoot. As he didn't make very much contact with the ball you could sort of call that a dummy... Either way I think he was trying to pass it to the open men. id="quote"> id="quote">Absolute rubbish. I've seen the replay a few times and it clearly WAS a dummy. And a brilliant one at that. At last we seem to have found a worthy player to fill that third midfield spot. Essien looked strong, fit and skilful. What a refreshing change from the plodding Guddy or the headless chicken displays of Tiago. id="quote"> id="quote">Dummy and so what? Tiago a headless chicken? Typical of the same fella who never ceases to amaze with his rants of disgrace!

  21. Didier Drogba

    quote:Originally posted by Tony BurkeThere is a lot of criticism of DD, but let's face it, if he hadn't have come on yesterday it is unlikely we would have won. He caused immediate concern in the Aresenal defence, and scored the goal. as for the moron in the MH stand, I am with Drogba. It doesn't matter who it is coming from, or why. Abuse is abuse. To have to suffer the indignity of some brain dead idiot slinging that kind of abuse at you should not have to be tolerated by anyone. I hope the stewards usee CCTV to find and ban the cretin. id="quote"> id="quote">I think we easily forget one thing here and that is, amongst 42,800 fans in SB, there will be some who render such abuse even at their own players! It happens everywhere and Rio Ferdinand suffered such until he signed his contract. I do not support abuse but I do not support the Drogba silly reaction either...

    quote:Originally posted by EstacheI think Crespo should continue being upfront than Drogba id="quote"> id="quote">Same here!
  23. Michael Essien

    All this Essien praise, it's ONLY 30 mins! I have seen players like Mido be a handful in their first performances and struggle there after. Like I said, Time will tell...
  24. Michael Essien

    quote:Originally posted by TeRiYaKiquote:Originally posted by dublueAgreed thought he looked a very good prospect. What happens to Tiago? id="quote"> id="quote"> He can rotate from the bench to the stands =) id="quote"> id="quote">Cruel talk there. Who says Tiago couldn't have done better if he was given a CHANCE yesterday???
  25. Didier Drogba

    quote:Originally posted by Khobarquote:Originally posted by hernancrespoquote:Originally posted by Gary StoneAnyone know what happened to him after he blazed over before his goal? He reacted to someone in the crowd and went back to them after he scored. id="quote"> id="quote"> Gary, I sat in row K in the MHL stand which is a few rows from where he was abused. After he kicked the shot wild into the stands, some bloke swore at him and Drogba foolishly went over to have a word with the fella instead of walking away. After being told to go back and play football, he walked away and SPAT in the process. Eidur then signalled to him not to spit in that manner. Curiously, when he scored, he went back to the SAME fella and showed off the lucky goal. JT was rejoicing but never understood that Drogba was trying to have a last laugh. I think the stewards stepped in and it seems to be history... id="quote"> id="quote"> HC - I think with the amount of abuse the guy gets, spitting on the ground whilst walking away is pretty mild. Also, it was only a lucky goal in that, yes, it bounced onto his shin and in. What wasn't lucky was the fact that he had got into the situation where his shin was in a position to be hit by the ball by once again outbattling Senderos. I don't give a damn if it goes in off his arse - as is always pointed out,the sign of a class striker is the ability to be in the right place at the right time.Even when top strikers are going 5 or 6 games without a goal, it's only a real worry when they stop getting in the right positions to have a shot. Drogba is getting in the right place and, at the moment, the goals are going in. Fortune favours the brave and for me Drogba has shown he has the balls to front up and be a valuable member of the first team squad. id="quote"> id="quote">I agree Khobar that he gets a lot of stick but at least he should have the grace to walk away from it. For £24m and the chances he misses, he should expect some of it but he does not do himself any good by running to the crowd to argue his case. It could spark an unnecessary row that would be more embarrassing that the naked guy who got on the pitch. I think it's just a manifestation of the biblical phrase that says "To whom much is given, much is expected". Not all fans have the wisdom of not getting on their players back. But because they pay their money, you cannot control their emotions...
