A fascinating Chelsea article

This was in the Guardian on the Sunday edition and was referenced tonight on Fox Football Fone in which in the firat 13 minutes has been more interesting than ever. The person who wrote this was interviewed and stands by every word thanks to 'well placed club sources' - if this or even half of this is true it makes you wonder who in their right mind would work there??? Is money really everything?


  • According to Terry, perhaps money is everything. His demand for an escalating parity clause so that he'd be the highest or equal highest earner may be what sends Drogba looking elsewhere. And Chelsea really look pretty blunt without Didier barging around up front. And the cheek! Maybe if he stops letting nameless Swedes ghost in to score from two consecutive corners, he'd be in a stronger bargaining position. But Terry's quite flawed in his footballing fundamentals.

    That's funny enough, but how naive must he be to imagine that he could negotiate option rights to the manager's job when he finishes playing? The boys on the Guardian's podcast called it arrogant, but brainless might be closer to the mark.

    Least his shoes always match his belt, eh?

  • Wow. That article is some read. This is like Hearts all over again eh? Good luck to the next Russian or Eastern European trying to buy an English club. And we thought the yanks would be bad :-)

  • That is a great read. If anything, I have more respect for Mourinho and even less than before for Kenyon. For Abromovich, Chelsea is just a plaything and his attitude is natural for something with that amount of dosh. What is revolting though is the coterie of bootlickers who are trying to make a few boob whilst destroying a formidable footballing club.

    I wouldn't mind taking a shot at Terry. He reckons he is a 'ard man but he bottles it and at 120K a week, is soft as shite.

  • I think you'd take him Chris.

  • This is very much Hearts - a club of muppets to be sure.
    I read once that if you cut John Terry in half you'd find an English flag running through him but now I think you'd find a nothing. Spineless, slow - a defender who uses his hands as much as his feet and a man who gets in the ref's face for every decision against. If Chris hit him I'd dive in.

  • Give me Vidic anyday. Now I know for a fact that Vidic would hammer Chris and Simon at the same time.

    Nemanja ohhh, Nemanja ohhh, He comes from Serbia... He'll Fuckn Murder Ya!

  • Sky Blues 1, United 0 (City win); Sky Blues 2, United 0 (Coventry win). Trend? Currently watching the WWC match with Brazil and the USA...Julie Foudy is a GENIUS on the stick. Her commentary is insightful and motivating. Best ever! Oops - own goal on the near post off the header - way to go, chicks! Foudy: "In steamy weather like this, the ball is going to skip like that." WHAT??????????

  • I suddenly want to watch women's soccer. And dont lie Johnno, you watch women's footy all the time - didnt you all play a bunch of women against Coventry?

    By Blogger Simon Burke, at 12:01 PM  

  • Ah the Schadenfreude of watching our women's team fail on the big stage. I suppose I should be somehow disappointed, but it all ended for me with some painfully stupid comments from Julie Foudy a couple of years ago. The rest of the world is either catching up with our women's program - or has already - and now we'll be treated to much wringing of hands and worrying by people who should just leave it alone. Best name on the team remains Shannon Boxx.

  • Ah, "Julie Foudy", as documented in the "challenging wank material" post of yester-year.

  • "didnt you all play a bunch of women against Coventry?"

    Sorry, you must have been thinking of when Parlour and Merson played for Arsenal.

    Another 1-0. We are the new Arsenal but without the synchronised raised arms at the back.
