How the hell do you know that? Do you even know what happened?Sulph said:Thirdly, John Obi Mikel wants to join Chelsea, it was Manchester United that forced him to put pen to paper.
C'mon. No one knew Collina was gonna ref the match. If everyone did, UEFA wouldnt have made such a big deal of Mourinho's comments. And there have been bigger games this season where Collina wasnt used so why have him in the Barca game? Its not like there was any heat between the two teams.Sulph said:Lastly, EVEN I KNEW that Collina was going to be reffing that game. Biggest game of the season, top of England v top of Spain, i thought that with all the contraversy after the first leg, UEFA are going to have to straighten it out with Collina.
Sulph said:Im sick of this, i hope they do not approach the FA with a formal complaint. And technically this would not be Chelsea at it again, as they must have done this before the Ashley Cole saga. Its just that they might be in hot water with the FA AGAIN. Which is pissing off. I hate seeing news on websites and in the paper relating to drugs, tapping ups, and other bullshit, i like seeing things such as transfer speculation or confirmed signings or brilliant results, this is seriously getting on my nerves and is ruining the image of Chelsea Football Club.
Sulph said:Not that worried, confident that that the title can be won by a 7-9 point difference next season. .
RuneEdge said:You know whats funny about the Cole saga? When they asked where Mourinho was at the time, he said "On that day at that time I was in Milan speaking with Adriano."
WTF?!? Inter at that point said that they werent in talks with Chelsea.
Mourinho might as well have said "I cant have been tapping him up, I was tapping up someone else at that time."
IceMan_Bergkamp said:The reason Ch£l$ki need a Sporting Director is because they can't do what Madrid have been doing for years - buying the best every year - and with an eye on future UEFA rules on limiting the number of foreigners in teams, Chelsea need to sort out their youth academy and nurture some home grown talent as well as tapping up every years Ballon D'Or winner.
In Arnesen, they have bought a man with a key eye on talent as seen in PSV - though these players didn't come to their peak some years after they were first bought, which is again, why Chelsea have approached Arnesen. Chelsea are at the moment spending a "loan" from Abramovich which he accepts back in kind - hence Kenyon saying "we need to become self efficient"... i.e., not having to fall back on sugar daddy's money. We'll probably see less of that Russian clapping seal in the future, but he'll still be around to see his investment return him his roubles. Ultimately, Chelsea want to garner the best youth of Europe as well as grass roots and then try to get the both worlds in future.
However, the apparent email to Tottenham's hierarchy in trying to ask about Arnesen's availability, while copying him into the original email is not a mistake, but a sly attempt to unsettle someone who they know will bring profit to their "business". Money talks i'm afraid - as you can see from "Glass Ankles" Cole. There is little loyalty nowadays due to the inflated wages paid to players. You only have to see the inept captain of our national football team and his wages to realise the world they live in is just so far detatched from reality it is comical.
If they are found guilty of approaching Tottenham, I hope the FA throw the book at them. But as all you UK resident forum members know - the FA stands for the notion of what they tend to do in these high profile situations - F*CK ALL.
