  1. I just noticed this....

    Wikipedia have conflicting info.... Page of Chelsea record scorers says Frank has 200 goals while his personal wiki page says 199. The difference? The one saying 200 goals also includes a goal in the CS. As it is an official game, shouldn't that goal count towards his total?

    Kerry Dixon has 13 goals in the column named "other". Tambling has none and Frank has one. The same goes for Drogba. He has 157 goals for us and 3 of those goals were scored in "other"...

    What number should we go after?

    Maybe I'm reading the tables wrong, but don't they both say 199?

  2. I have been following this thread fairly closely (although I admit losing it a bit with the company law, articles, etc) and forgive me if I've missed it being said before, but are shares back on sale after the suspension?

    If they are is anyone keeping tabs on how many have been sold since the EGM?

    If they are not back on sale, are there plans to put them back on sale, and what's to stop 20 more mystery punters snapping up 100 each?

  3. Other way round for me. I never expected a 61% yes vote. Hardly spoken to anyone voting yes. If the total votes cast was 6000, then only just over 2000 voted no. Not starting any conspiracy theories but that sounds low to me?

    Maybe not exact, but The Telegraph have reported that there were 5796 votes cast.

    I make that 3570 votes for Yes, 2226 votes for No.

    If you take into account the (alleged) near 2000 Yes votes which were purchased in the last week of sales, it may give the whole thing a bit more perspective?

  4. There are many Liverpool Fans, on RAWK and elsewhere, who perfectly understood Torres' apparent frustration at not being able to play Champions League, and who were ready to let him go on to another team, Chelsea included, without resentment. They had remained supportive although he had not been playing particularly well for LFC for many months. When he handed in his transfer request while being in Spain, three days before the closing of the winter window, without any previous indication that he was planning to leave this winter, without any explanation or farewell note to the fans, and after many (needless) statements how much he loved LFC and how he was not going to sign up for any rival and the like, it understandably caused shock / anger / hate. He was very much loved - or idolised - at Liverpool as a footballer and as a person, and could easily have handled this in a less offensive way - no reason for all the ridicule posted here. Torres seems to have changed into a different personality during the last year. Either he was exceptionally clever at pretending before, or more probable, he decided to act on impulse two weeks ago because of some personal / professional low. It will be interesting to see in what way he will perform for Chelsea - expectations must be oppressively high for a man with a 50 million tag. I am no Liverpool supporter, btw.

    If you read the actual words he said (and not the tabloid version), I don't think he has been too offensive to Liverpool fans.

    Torres said:

    "It is like the destiny. It is not perfect for me but we will see what happens and I only have good words about Liverpool. They made me a top player and gave me the chance to play at the top level. I will never say anything bad about Liverpool, I have been very happy there, but now the history is different and I am playing for Chelsea. If I have the chance to play I will do my best for Chelsea and hopefully I can score."

  5. Shaun Custis, a supposed journalist on the Super Soakaway Scum, did the press report on SSN this morning and he made a great deal of the fact that Dalgliesh was there when they signed Carrol and Ancelotti was not when Torres was signed which, according to his 3 brain cells, meant that Ancelotti wanted nothing to do with having Torres at Chelsea and that it was a sure sign that he was off in the summer. Now I would expect a (irony alert) a leading journalist on a leading paper to acyually realise that the team and Management were 3090 miles away in Sunderland and could not really be in two places at once.

    This surely isn't the same Super Soakaway Sun whose 'Chief Sports Writer' penned this piece of made-up twattery just six weeks ago?

  6. I was mad too when Drogba kept stopping time (at the Barca game) when he went down and had a 'injury'. All those stoppage times went into extra minutes...which caused Barca to score!?

    I hate when people keep bringing this up - If Drogba didn't roll around so much, the ref wouldn't have added any time on. Ironically, I think you'll find the longest stoppage (and the one which caused most of the time added on) was Abidal (and team mates) complaining and taking his time to leave the pitch.

  7. We're building for the long term. We can't just buy success like certain teams. We will go about things the right way and eventually we'll get there. In the meantime you can go on buying silverware, although your not even the best at that anymore are you?

    Go about things the right way??? You shouldn't even be in this division after your seedy Tevez/Mascherano deals.

    You're just another mug who pretends to believe the 'we-play-lovely-football-but-we're-always-shite-academy-of-football' theory fed to them by the media.

    At the root of it all, you're full of jealousy and know that Zola said in the summer that he wasn't ready for a big club yet because he's still learning.

    When he's ready, he'll come home.

  8. This kit is only advertised as 08/09, does this mean we'll be getting another new one next season? Isn't it enough that they change the away kit every year?

    Yes, this new home kit (and all future home kits) will be used for just one season.

    They mention it about half way down the article
