Nightrider i can tell you about Bruce Buck,Ade madu,Britos and the people you do not know at the Bridge with looking at www.chelseafc.com.So peter Kenyon is just too popular for me not to know him.Back to what is giving you headach.Robben was signed with injury.boy-u have the opportunity of signing him,but they were afraid because of the injury he was nursing at the time.So they did not sign him and the blues did.Mikel trained with boy-u with the hope that they are will sign him,later they told him to leave that they can not sign him now[then]so he went to chelsea where he trained and the Special One promised to sign him when he clock 18,So later,Mikel lost hope if man-u,sorry boy-u will sign him because they did not give him any hope.Essien;peter Kenyon or anderson did not tell him not to train with lyon again,the guy decided not to train because he already wanted to leave the club.And i guess he his man enough to make his decisions.If ashley cole never wanted to leave arsenal,why did he attended the meeting?

never he has done enough to make me proud. I have never denied chelsea have great players and a very good coach. i'm a realistic person not blinded by my devotion to arsenal. So when i tell yu chelsea has a problem somewher don't doubt me cuz yu know it's not out of beef.

Drogba is not a striker, he should be converted to a midfielder. he is not good on the ground and yu know definately not in the class of king henry the great. Chelsea is a complete counter attacking side. when yu guys go 2 barca i'll see how yu'll dare to try n counter attack

Thank God you confirm that we have fantastic players.

I like Drogba because he's an African and soon we will be holding the same ECOWAS passport.

Akolawole don't make me laugh!!!!

chelsea doesn't outclass other clubs you just use to much cunny cunny!! Abeg please if you want to wear a respectable chelsea jersey get cole or lampard or terry or robben. Those are fantastic footballers and i would be proud to be associated with them. DROGBA is a two left legged misfiring striker. . He is the only striker in the premiership that his midfielder finishes above him on the goal scorers chart every season. See the goal he missed against Barcelona

Thierry Henry wearing wrapper and Gele would have scored that goal and you know it.

It's obvious this topic is heading no where, since you still can't seem to decipher my words. Is Chelsea arrogant? No, but unfortunately for them they have an arrogant coach and so are branded arrogant. I'm really tired of this. You win, put it in the papers make i rest.

I never complained about the high fees chelsea pays for players, because then i would have to complain about real madrid and Ac milan and all other great clubs. Rather i complained about the sneaky way Chelsea does it.

Alex ferguson said recently that when buying players he has to hide now, because he wouldn't want to alert Chelsea to talent he has uncovered because they have a way of going through the back door.Can you blame him?

Robben, duff, Obi taken from Man U , Essien from arsenal, have all been taken through the back door. Chelsea's tapping of Ashley Cole etc. [/quote]

Robben, Duffy, Obi, Essien. You dropped these names as if they were obscure players before Man and Arsenal "discovered" them.

Jose has won 7 (8 if you count this year's premiership) titles in 6 years so what's so special about 17 in 20 years?

Jose won Champions League, UEFA Cup, 2 Portugese League and 1 Portugese Cup in 2 and half years with Porto

Jose won UEFA and Champions league back to back before anyone called Rafa

Jose has won titles with different clubs

Tinkerman was sacked because Chelsea wanted the best.  Why should Chelsea be ashamed of losing to Barca? You keep screaming Barca as if Jose didn't oust them last year without a striker.

I think i am neutral here cos i dont support any English team. I am a madridista. Personally, i dont think chelsea are arrogant. it's just that they shook up the status quo so much and left the likes of man u and arsenal in the lurch that other teams can't help but hate them and besides the have have a manager who really is a master at mind games. it will take some time for people to see chelsea beyond the money, but it will happen.

I do not hate Mourinho, if you have read any of my earlier posts you will see that i've said in many places that he is a fantastic coach with loads of self confidence. As a matter of fact i'm a fan.

I'm an Arsenal fan not Man- U

Apart from Rio ferdinand and wayne rooney who's signings where high, Man u's other recruitments where relatively very low.

Cantona was bought from leeds for 1.2million and was considered a steal for such a player at the time. Ferguson moulded him into a great player. Roy keane was a nobody when he was bought by ferguson.

The great Man-u side of 90's all came from the youth squad. Scholes, beckham,giggs, the neville brothers.

As a matter of fact Ferguson said he turned down signing Zidane from Marseille because he wanted to stick with an emerging youngster called Beckham.

My dear JIO, understanding is the key to Unlock the mystery of my words.

whats pompousity? Exaggerated dignity, Full of high sounding praises for oneself,excessive self esteem.

Please tell me which of them doesn't sound like Mourinho. i can't waste space typing the things Mourinho has said about himself we all know them.

I listed achievments of other great coaches and as i can see yu and akolawole have failed to look at those lists or have looked at them and shuddered and shied away from commenting, because Jose Mourinho is not in that league. I didn't say he can never be, but for now he is not.

For the benfit of all i have pasted it again.

Alex Ferguson has won 17titles in a 20 year reign at united,

Arrigo saatchi won the european cup and four titles in Five seasons with milan

del bosque won two champions league titles and two european cups in four seasons

Benitez has won the uefa cup and champons league back to back

Fagbio Capello has won four champions league titles with various teams and apart from winning several scudetto's took Milan to an unbeaten run in serie A.

Del bosque won 2champions league titles, two spanish league titles, i spanish super cup, i european supercup,1 intercontinental super cup in "ONLY FOUR YEARS OF COACHING" FOUR YEARS OF COACHING. 1999-2003

Mourinho has been coaching six years SIX YEARS.

mourinho's mouth reminds me of an NBA situation some time ago, where in a 76ers vs BUlls game, allen iverson dribbles past michael Jordan and scores, in the corresponding interview he says to the press he is as great Jordan. I laugh.

question please, no beef here? If ranieri was sacked for losing in champions league semi final and coming 2nd in the league, would Mourinho be sacked for getting kicked out by Barcelona in only the second round?

I'm out of this topic, Akolawole please think up sumthin else.

As a die hard Mourhino fan, I can't help but reply night rider.

Mourhino has only been a coach for 6 years and for 5 of those years he has won titles. not moi moi titles o, he couldn't have won more than there was to win within the short time he has been a coach.

Obviously Nightrider is a Man U fan and before you throw any stone, dig into your club's history and look at the use of money in the recruitment of Steve Bruce, Bryan Robson, Gordon Strachan, Eric Cantona, Roy Keane, Andy Cole, Teddy Sheringham, Rio Ferdinand and Wayne Rooney to name a few.

Have you ever asked yourself why Man U has not been able to produce another set of players like the class of 91 (Beckham and co youth FA cup winning side)?

Instead of hating Jose, why not look at the wider picture?? Pay close attention to the influence of Jose, Rafa and Jol. Very soon, Wenger and SAF will belong to the record books.

all the players they muscle from other clubs through the back door:robben, obi, essien, duff

heh slimnike don't make me laugh, ferguson arrogance towards beckham was in house, Ferguson never in his 20 year reign at old trafford portrayed the picture of a big mouth, he was always humble and thankful for his achievments.

Alex Ferguson has won 17titles in a 20 year reign at united,

Arrigo saatchi won the european cup and four titles in five seasons with milan

del bosque won two champions league titles and two european cups in four seasons

Benitez has won the uefa cup and champons league back to back

Fagbio Capello has won four chapions league titles with various teams

Mourinho is a good coach, he hasn't reached the level of great. with all the russian money he still can't win the champions league. The great chelsea is already hanging out of the Champions league in the 2nd Round. How terrible. Money don't buy titles.

If Ferguson leaves Man U and capello takes over. Mourinho is going to learn a bigger lesson than he learned during the Barca match. Apart from better teams than Chelsea, there are better coaches

Lets talk facts

Why is Arjen Robben in chelsea and not Manchester United

He had accepted to join united, chelsea comes along and blinds him with money Man u can't afford and he jumps ship

What about John Mikel obi

I watched his interview after joining Man U , he was happy< he says he was forced to sign that interview shows nothing of the sort. Chelsea comes along and blinds him with money, now he is crying foul.

what about Micheal essien whom arsenal wanted, They couldn't even attempt it because of Chelsea's interest in the player

I support what Sepp Blatter said about Chelsea , It's financial Doping

O and i remember damien duff being chased by Man U , only for him to turn around and sign for Chelsea

ryan Giggs said we can't match them cash for cash

No doubt Mourinho is a great coach and he has a fantastic team, but He is arrogant and arrogance buys you no love. People want to see you eat your words even if you really are good.

Mourinho blows his trumpet to much, he is like the proverbial agama lizard that nods his head after climbing the tree.

There are greater coaches, Fabio Capello , four chamions league titles , he took Ac milan to an unbeaten run in serie A minus the other serie a titles. He has won back to back titles with juventus and real madrid in the spanish league.

vincente del bosque has done much more than mourinho, the year he was caretaker manager , he won the champions league, even mourinho couldn't manage that. He won two champions league and two spanish league titles in 4 years.

what about ferguson, benitez, sir bill shankly.

Thats why Chelsea is hated , because your coach represents your team and your coach is mouthy.

@ababoy1:

Which year was Chelsea playing in front of 3000 fans? Hope you're not talking of the Bentley era of the 50s? What tradition are you talking about?

First year of RA, Chelsea placed 2nd and the shout was "Money Can't Buy Success" but when Jose came and we won the league it's now "Buying Success with Dodgy Russian Money".

If money can buy success, how come Inter Milan has not won serie A title with all the money Moretti has pumped into Inter or the Galaticcos are without a trophy for 3 years?

When you hear Blues haters talk, you'll think Chelsea was struggling in the bottom half of the league before RA came.

I think the way we won the league in style last season breaking almost all premiership records was too much for some to take.

Is Mourihno really a nobody??

Google Jose Mourihno and see his profile. He became a first team coach in 2000 and has won all there is to win in club football. What else do you need to become the "Special One".

Before you say it's because of RA's money, check out what he did in Portugal with a budget comparable to a Championship side.

These are word for word quotations from Mourinho, the link Akolawole gave above.

Chelsea chief Mourinho called for Messi to be banned after he accused the Argentine of conning Norwegian ref Terje Hauge into giving a red card to Asier Del Horno for a 37th-minute foul.[/b]The Blues boss said: “

(M) Is it even worth going to Barcelona for the second leg? “If it is not I will send my B team to the Nou Camp and keep my main players here to concentrate on the Premiership and FA Cup.

thats because he knows he can never beat Barca there, he is looking for a smart way out of the humiliatiion.

(M) How do you say cheating in Catalan? Barcelona is a cultural city with many great theatres and this boy has learned very well. He’s learned play-acting.

Yeah of course he learned play acting, he learned from the best, days of consistently watching robben dive to get reina of liverpool booked, perfectly honed his acting skills.

(M)“The kid jumps and provokes contact with Del Horno and because of that the referee gives a red card.

If he hadn't jumped, Del horno would have destroyed the poor boys leg. Its called reflex action, save yourself at all cost.

(M) But is TV going to show the incident 200 times a week and try to persuade UEFA to replay the game?Michael Essien was given a yellow card against Liverpool but that was correctly changed after the game and he was given a ban. But that did not change the result.

TV is not going to waste valuable airtime showing del horno's callousness, rather i'm sure they'll show the beauty of ETO'Os header and the resultant anti-special look on Mourinho's face. That will get high ratings,.

Arrogant, mouthy, pompous - I really dont care. I just dont think they are good for football. A few years ago, Chelsea were nothing short of a Sunday Morning side playing in front of 3000 fans. All all of a sudden they now think they are a big club because of some dodgy money from Russia. Football is all about tradition and building (not buying) success,

For me Chelski are simply the Blackburn of the South,
