Gilberto: Chelsea Have No Respect

Gilberto: Chelsea Have No Respect

After Arsenal hard earned point at the Bridge on Sunday, stand in captain, Gilberto has slammed the Blues for their lack of respect for the match officials.

As Tim Stillman reported after the game, for each and every decision in the match, the Chelsea captain and his buddies would be in the ref's ear, obviously a ploy forged by Josie considering the post-match pictures of him whinging at the ref as he walked off the pitch.

Well, Bert didn't like it.

'They should respect the referee more, all their fouls there were two, three, four players around the referee putting him under pressure.' Said Gilberto.

'It's not good because the referee tried to do his best. If he is under pressure it is much more difficult.'

'They know the referee was doing his job very, very well.'

'Especially when Ashley Cole got booked, they tried to put him under pressure to book our players. It's not the kind of game everybody wants to see.'

On the flip side of the coin Mr Silva was a model captain and kept his young charges in line throughout the game, and with any hint of a kerfuffle, he was there to diffuse the situation.

A true role model to all.

Damn straight, Terry is a dispicable little *******. England has the captain it deserves. A classless, overhyped piece of garbage. (Who was constantly put on his arse by Adebayor).

To see Terry, Lampard and Cole pointing out Arsenal players they believed should be booked only makes me more grateful we don't have English players.

Ill be honest I dont like seeing it and yes we do do it. I am going to do a piece on it tomorrow for Vital-Chelsea so you want to add your tuppence worth, and I suspect you may, then feel free to pop by. In the meantime - yeah, ok, its not something we like to see and I would like to see it stamped out. I think many of you are using it as an excuse to have a pop at Chelsea as if we are the only team that does it. We do ourselves no favours by doing it, although if it wasnt this im sure youd find something else that we are doing that is ruining football etc.

Oh but hatespur, that's a foreign thing don't you know? To quote Shearer, "that doesn't happen over here."

Yeah that's what grates with us Arsenal fans I believe. Finger's are always pointed at foreigners so by extension Arsenal F.C. There was a STARK difference in behaviour on Sunday and it definately wasn't 'the whining cheating whinging Johnny Foreigner' that was embarassing the game....

I wonder which nationality Shearer believes the Neville bros', Rio, Rooney, J.Cole, A.Cole, Terry, Lampard are the rest are then? OLASAL, fair play for admitting it, there are times when I get as *****ed off with Lehmann for some of his antics (Spurs 2004 in particular) and with Wenger for some of his post match comments, but thankfully we don't seem to crowd the referee on every decision he makes.

OLASAL - Honest as usual, but you'll find that your boys are in the ref's face almost every game this season, but this is the first time we've reported it, because we've just played you, plus it's also fun to have a poop :P
