Chelsea have no Respect

Chelsea have no Respect

News broke yesterday night after Arsenal's glorious 3-0 demolition of Wigan, that Chelsea's number two, Ray Wilkins, thought Arsenal disrespects the Carling Cup by playing a vibrant and entertaining youth side.

Wilkins told The Sun: "It`s all about winning trophies when you`re a big club.

'The fact we`ve won the Carling Cup twice in the last four years and Arsenal have won none justifies our policy'

"You enter a competition to win the competition. Why go into it if you`re not concerned whether you win it?'

"Playing a young or weakened team undermines the value of the competition."

"And we have not and will not do that. We want to win it, big time."

At first I felt that a little jealously was deeply rooted in Rays comments, but tonight I can do nothing but laugh at the wanker. Chelsea played a pretty much full strength side at home to the Mighty Burnley and lost 5-4 on penalties. So much for winning big. I hope he feels proud of his comments now because while Arsenal fans left the stadium last night ecstatic about the young players they just witnessed, Chelsea fans will leave the Bridge tonight in disappointment. Wilkins comments were out of line and completely disrespectful, and now he just looks like a fool. Well done Ray!

Not forgetting Keith Harris (who brokered the deal to sell Chelsea to Abramovich) commenting on Liverpool's financial situation. Coincidentally issuing the comments the exact moment Liverpool began to look like title contenders.

What are the chances of Uncle Fester whacking a bit of Aretha on the ipod tonight? "R-E-S-P-E-C-T found out what it means to me!"

Strange , when Scolari says nice words about Wenger, I don't see a "Chelsea have respect" headline. Wilkins was wrong, Wilkins.

He looks like uncle fester.

I knew this was waiting in the wings!! LOL

True LD, I also found the timing of Keith Harris's comments suspicious. Funny thing is, I didn't see Ray Wilkins commenting on Manu's line up, didn't they play with a mostly reserve side?
12/11/2008 23:02:00
The headline was a response to the title of the Sun article 'Arsenal have no respect', and not about Chelsea as a whole, though some might argue otherwise. By the way I like Scolari, good man unless your a fourth official of course.

Of course he did not comment on utd, he used to play for them. And what is this comment that R Harris made? I seem to have missed it.
