Fulham - Chelsea
Saw the highlights on the "EPL Review Show" on FSC and wish I had watched it. This match had everything - a shock Fulham early goal, several pathetic Chelsea misses, a disallowed goal, an irate "special one", a scuffle at the sideline followed by a sending off, and finally a pitch invasion! Excellent, well done Fulham. Jose had some insightful comments post-game: 'I cannot speak about the referee. I have to control myself. ' - Jose is clearly a disciple of the Roman philospher Seneca who said, "Most powerful is he who has himself in his own power." Jose clears up the result: 'A defeat is a defeat even if you don't deserve the defeat. We don't deserve the defeat but it's a defeat.' Jose the existentialist: 'If it's a Chelsea player, the Chelsea manager or Chelsea football club, there's no doubt about it. At West Brom I have the final proof about that. Bryan Robson is Bryan Robson and Jose Mourinho is Jose Mourinho. We are not the same.' The gracious side of Jose: 'I also hope Fulham know how to win. I know this is not something that happens a lot for them but I hope they can interpret the big victory in a good way and respect Chelsea people.' My favorite quote however comes from Chris Coleman: [re disallowed goal] - 'It was given and then taken away and the same thing happened to us at Arsenal last year when we were given a penalty and it was taken away. So I understand Chelsea's frustration. But to be honest I don't care.' Well said Chris! Chris P. - what is that big brown house-like structure at one corner of the stadium? Is that "Craven Cottage"?? Just curious, I wonder every time I see it.
