A Message To Chelsea Fans

A Message To Chelsea Fans

Manchester City lost against Chelsea. Well done Chelsea fans, you all seem to think you`re back on top of the world, and nothing can stop you.

Think again. The game itself was very good, both teams had chances to score, and I admit Chelsea had the majority. However I must have spoken to several Chelsea fans since the game and they seem to think Abramovich has managed to get something over on "that guy from the desert".

Can I remind you, Man City is still owned by Thaksin Shinawatra, even though the takeover is set to be completed by early next week? Furthermore Chelsea has spent around 300 million pounds, more than Man City on players. So to compare Chelsea to Manchester City, at this stage is absolutely ridiculous. Chelsea may have won "This battle of the cash", but Manchester City has the financial backing to overtake them.

"Money doesn`t buy you everything" another Chelsea fan stated. Well that`s a tad hypocritical don`t you think? I had nothing against Chelsea, or their fans until the day jealousy began to poison their minds. I apologise to any half decent Chelsea fan, because this message does only go out to those who can`t see that Chelsea should have beaten us.

To all Chelsea fans, I ask you to watch Manchester City over the next years. You may have won the battle, but City will win the war!

Right on Aaron. City are not trying to "outspend" Chelsea. In fact they are the most profligate club in history. Also their yout development is a sham. Almost none of their FA Youth Cup Final team were English, let alone local lads. We won the FA Youth Cup with an Academy side. In the senior side our first team has an average age of about 23. Chelsea's is about 28. How many Academy players played for Chelsea today? None. How many played for City? SWP, Richards, Ireland, Sturridge. And Johnson would have played if fit. Chelsea is yesterday's team. City is the future.

Sinbad....complete b*ll*cks. Terry is a Chelsea academy player. Chelsea have 5 current England u21 and u19 internationals . There are 12 professional teams in London vying for the same pool of local lads....There are two in Manchester. Chelsea qualified for champions league and had won 5 trophies in 7 years prior to Abramovich taking over. I have not heard one Chelsea fan bemoan Citehs new found wealth, we have all welocomed it. You are a complete t*t on the other hand.

Robinho voted by you lot MOTM?! What about SWP?! Pathetic citeh fans..the fans who dress like Arab are even more pathetic..Obviously you enjoy the money and want your team built just as strong as Chelsea, admit that, nothing to shame of...
14/09/2008 01:11:00
Wow, the old adage - modest in victory, humble in defeat seems to have been forgotten by a couple here. It is true that Chelsea have spent more than you but what you have to remember is, that even though only one (?) of your signings was made based on the understanding of the Arab deal, you did spend over £50 million on just two players this Summer. I've nothing against City at all - nor to any team spending money. Chelsea were the better team today but I don't mind admitting being more worried about this game than any other so far this season in the build up (I know we've only had 4!).

Please could you confirm the average age of the team which played at Eastlands yesterday? Perhaps you could then lecture me on how important youth is to the future of Chelsea football?
14/09/2008 05:09:00
The_Legend_Of_Zola. Could you confirm you are a West Ham united fan?

Whitewall the poplation of London is 7.1 million the population of manchester is 439000, you have far more prople to choose from but can name only one academy player, theothers you stole from west ham

Whitewall is clearly an expert on the history of football Academies. He says Chelsea had one player from their "Academy" on display yesterday at Eastlands. I will research further. It may be that Chelsea are a Paragon of youth development. It may be that London youth know exactly where to go to carve out a career in football -- at Chelsea. Whitewall, how many London youth were in your team which got beaten by Man City in the last FA Youth Cup?
14/09/2008 05:27:00
Votings not over yet LeeF. I agree with you SWP was my MOM and yes we do want a team as strong and with as much quality as yours, but it will take time and hopefully a lot less money than Roman has spent on Chelsea and also around the young home grown players we have in the squad.

The_Legend_Of_Zola, of course Chelsea were the better team today and I admit that Robinho would have fitted into your team very well and would have been a star along side your others. I also suspect that both JO and Robinho our £50m buys in the summer were not Sparkys choices, but have been bought for him. That is the best Chelsea have played for a long time, most teams are quite content to hold out for a draw, we went for a win and it didn't come off, but the signs are there for us, we can only get better especially when our key players are fit. I hope you win the Premier, but City will win more games than they lose.
