Chelsea Are Artificial

Chelsea Are Artificial

Arsenal stopper, Jens Lehmann claims that Chelsea are an 'artificial' club.

Arsenal have had a series of of resounding victories over the past few weeks and are back playing some blinding football.

Chelsea have the ability to throw as much money as possible at any problem that comes their way.

However Lehmann believe's the current Champions way of doing things works, but isn't as attractive as our own style of play.

'Our way of working is clearly more attractive,' claims Lehmann. 'Fans struggle to identify with Chelsea. They are a sort of artificial product.

'Their way of doing things works but they don't play such attractive football. At Arsenal, in that sense, we are a step ahead of them.'

Cue the Chelsea invasion.

I agree with the great Jens, Arsenal know how to play great passing football that surpases any club, if we get far we deserve it. Chelsea forget football is a sport to entertain people, people go to be entertained but Chelsea forget that and just want to win.

I think most football fans would agree with Jens on this one. Chelsea fans say 'oh your just jealous we got lots of money'. trust us we are not! they will have no real respect from any body unlike Arsenal, Liverpool, Man Utd etc.

To be fair to Chelsea we as a club and as a fan base are still getting used to being a top team and as I’m not yet used to winning titles I more than happy to be a winner with unattractive football. Just like Arsenal fans were under Graham. Although saying that I would like to see us put on more entertaining fair but am willing to give it another season before it becomes a demand.

Chelsea are having trouble hitting the back of the net. The solution: spend a ridiculous amount of money on a striker in the summer. Money may buy you the Premiership, but it won't buy you the Champions League or Love.

Not worried about the love but would say that the CL can be bought, despite the recent luck of 'Pool/Porto.
