Can't Buy The Title?

Can't Buy The Title?



So the papers are awash with Salomon Kalou declaring City can't buy the title. He's probably right for this season, but he's carefully omitted the fact that his present employers have achieved precisely that over periods of time and only really won it last year because Stretford's finest ran out of steam because they hadn't bought enough players and that the lads they had coming through might just not have been ready.

When you think of Chelsea Kalou's name doesn't exactly spring to mind does it? At best a bit part player, coming on to be ineffective or going off because he is ineffective and he's telling us what the season holds.

Well Salomon, I did not see you contribute much to a 2-1 defeat at Eastlands and you were lucky to lose 4-2 at Stamford Bridge, where if not for fat Frank you would have been totally embarrassed. And did Adebayor not score in his own net at Eastlands? Oh yes you couldn't create anything for your strikers or even get one yourself. Marvellous!! It's one thing the bitter Red Chopper Scholes putting his oar in, the guy's been around a while and won a lot but you? Listen, Salomon, when you quit Chelsea you'll be switching on Christmas lights in Hatch End (no disrespect to the inhabitants of Hatch End), or playing your football in the backwaters of Turkey or Donetsk. Get used to the fact that you play the King, we play the Ace. End of.

No Chelsea player has any right whatsoever to make such comments. I remember one window where Chelsea bought 6 or 7 players. They suddenly are on their high horse because they have found the success they bought and become a European powerhouse. We still beat them home and away, how many other teams can boast that?

Obsessed with your team? Don't hear any media interviews from City players slating your chances do you LLB? Seems everyone from Manure, Chelsea, Everton and Spurs seems unable to keep their gobs shut when it comes to City. So who's obsessed?

I love rival players having a go, it just gives City's players more motivation to prove the doubters wrong. Bring it on!

THe only time you hear Citeh is when Bellamy or Tevez start chatting utter ballacks after a game. What wonders it did last year eh? Still can't believe SPuds beat you to fourth lol
