I thought you were supposed to be good now that you've got all that money?

Now that has to be the w*nkiest post we've had for a while! Class! The takeover was only last week you know. Now we know what we have to aim for and should remember the years it took Chelski to get to this compact outfit. If we can keep mixing our Academy lads with the right international stars, we'll be well set for the future. Showed great promise. But what was the Terry Cech square off about?

LOL..Chelsea ended up second in the first season after the take-over and became champions in the subsequent season..but - on compassionate grounds - i'll try to not rub it in too hard: you will neither be champions, nor second (actually i don't even rate you as capable of ending up in the top 6)..you were soo poor today, and the only reason for the comparetively low defeat was this embarrassment of a referee! And, to be honest, I don't expect the arabs to stay in manchester for too long..I guess they lack football competence to figure out that a team of your calibre is not capable of penetrating the mighty top 4! Reason? Because top football players won't join you no matter which financial seduction you will offer..They'd rather play for Barca, Man Utd, Chelsea, Milan etc enjoying instant success..Btw: Robinho sucked!

Nonsense, of course. Chelsea were already a top four side before the oligarchs money came in. Check your history. I'll repeat my post for you from yesterday as you obviously never read it: "I cannot get over this unbelivably arrogant attitude from some Chelsea fans. I don't ever recall hearing it at the Bridge on our trips down there in the 80's or the 90's. All this my wallets bigger than your wallet. Embarrassing. Chelsey, you have to be reading too many tabloids. We want a team built around our Academy lads. Something the modern Chelsea fan has no concept of. Even the rags can say their European Champions sides were built around homegrown players. Loadsamoney etc...."

The stats show very clearly that a 1-3 result flatters Chelsea. This game could have gone either way and next time we meet I expect we will beat Chelsea.

"The stats show very clearly that a 1-3 result flatters Chelsea." - 18 goal attempts for an away team. We deserved the win. Accept it.
