sure, if that makes you feel better....
k_chelski
Oh behave, you were lucky to beat our second string. We dominated most of the game with a team that had an average age 6 years younger than yours.
simmy8_2000
Sure...okay, you dominated.Whatever you say, if it makes you feel better.
k_chelski
yeah it does make us feel better. you can never feel as we do about our club, we watch on as an artist (Wenger) builds us a fine table made of solid oak (Our young team) that will last for years and generations whilst you shop for tables in Ikea (your mechanical club). Chelsea= quickfix club who cant function without a sugar daddy, no pride in that.
iceman10
.What 'bout the team of today?The one that wenger started building in 2000?Where's the silverware?.Okay mate, okay.If it makes you feel better...
k_chelski
How many of our current players were here in 2000? Don't speak of that you don't understand K_Chelski. The class of 2000 has come and gone! If the team that you only just beat had an average age of 14 in 2000.
simmy8_2000
Erm the team he built in 2000 won 2 titles and never got beaten away from home whilst winning them, in fact one of those teams went 49 games undefeated. chuck in 3 FA cups during that time and that is a better record than maureen, get your facts straight. BTW it never cost Arsene £300 million to build those teams. Ikea oooaoo, Ikea oooaoo.
iceman10
he's gona?So in seven years, no Denilson?
k_chelski
it's gonna*
k_chelski
Nononono iceman, the team that won those titles, were the youngsters from 96, lol, the youngsters from 2000, the 17 year old boys back then, what did they win?
k_chelski
What are you gibbering on about? i have listed what the team of 2000 ended up winning, the team Wenger built from 1996 won the double in 1998. There is continuity in how Wenger builds his teams and what they win, this is his third build and could well be his best. Imagine what Diaby, Denilson and Fabregas would have done to your midfield if they were 4 years older!
iceman10
k-chels, why are you tring to spoil our United Kingdom celebration night. You have the Samba Parade in Brazil, we have the, "Smug big headed arrogant twits who spend a fortune and can't win the Premiership, in dedication to Chelsea parade". Why not take a night off vital Arsenal, and go and console the other fools over at vital Chelsea with stories of your success in the Carling Cup.
flv
okay, from your logics iceman, in two years, those youngsters will win tons of stuff?Alrighty then...
k_chelski
flv, it's called carnaval.And i hate it, except for the naked woman, and the holidays.OH stop it, i'm in all vitals, if i have the chance of making fun of an enemy, i will.I don't go to Vital spurs anymore, though.Xenephobes are not fun(i'm not saying you're one).
k_chelski
The team has a chance of silverware this season K_chels. Next season I would be willing to bet a considerable sum that Arsenal will win something and in 2 years time, maybe next season, the Premiership is coming to it's new home - The grove!
simmy8_2000
It just the facts of Arsenes reign, not my logic. I know when you can spend £100 million a season on footballers its hard to accept some clubs have to grow teams but thats how it is for everybody except you lot. You cant Ignore facts. Arsene builds teams, those teams win things.
iceman10
Wrong, don't try to put everything on us.There's plenty of clubs who buy lots players every season.We are helping the smaller teams.We pay large sum of money to a medium club like Newcastle, with that money, newcastle is able to buy good players from a small club like tottenham, thus helping everyone.
k_chelski
5% said Chelsea were just too strong (nice to see Vital Spurs joining in) Vital Chelsea also made a contribution as ------- think the word well is missing, something your youngsters need to visit more to last 90 minutes!
merlin
Let me just call denilson and tell him he'll be premiership champion in 2 years!
k_chelski
He wouldnt talk to a deluded Brazilian who supports a team who play the most un-brazilian football possible :)
iceman10
Oh and thanks for enhancing the premiership by paying over the odds for mediocre players and selling players like Duff with massive losses. Good luck with being self sustaining by 2010 aswell!
iceman10
Ha, i would tell him the history of the arsenal, of course he would fell asleep, after the nap he would understand why do i cheer for the mighty blues.
k_chelski
Name a team that's spent as much as chelsea since RA took over?
simmy8_2000
k-chels, when are you gonna find time to call Denilson. You spend every waking moment on vital Arsenal posting complete nonsense!
flv
Mediocre my arse, Duff was a good player.
k_chelski
You joke about the history of Arsenal!!! Haha!! The conversation on the history of Chelsea would last for all of 20 seconds!
flv
flv, i post all the time, everywhere!He's here , He's there, he's every ******** where, k_cheslki k_chelski , k_chelski!
k_chelski
simmy, overall, who spent more, chelsea or madrid?
k_chelski
He was a good player...2 years ago. What has he done for Newcastle? You sold him because he was useless and injury prone, you sold them a......Duffer! If you add Up all the London clubs from League 2 to the Premiership they wouldnt have spent as much as RA! No wonder he is p!$$ed at watching such tripe after spending all that cash, he cant even be arsed to go to games anymore!
iceman10
Nah, mr abramovich gave his longt time a 100 million dollar yatch.He doesn't care about money, :p.Hey, it's not our fault he's not good anymore.We sold him cheap cheap.
k_chelski
friend*
k_chelski
I shouldn't think there's much difference between money spent between your 2 clubs now. How about in the last 4 years?
simmy8_2000
simmy, the money real madrid spent with Zidane, was more than our whole history prior to abramovich.Now , let us spend our euros/dollars/pounds.
k_chelski
Problem is its not your euros/dollars/pounds.Without RA you would have a grand total of a packet of crisps and a lollipop to spend.
iceman10
Your trying to say that before Abramovich took over Chelsea hadn't spent £45Million in their whole history?
simmy8_2000
k-chels, your club has spent more money than any other club in the Premiership and you have been overthrown in the league this season! Last week, after the CC final, your lads were oh so quick to point out that, 'there's no prize for second best', so how do your bunch of second place losers explain this! Yes we may only finish third or fourth which makes us losers too, but hey at least we didn't embarass ourselves by trying to outspend everybody else in the process and have our manager harping on endlessly about how special he is! Egg on the face for Mourinho!
flv
Hasselbaink £16 million, Lampard £11 million, Petit £7 million, Sutton £10 million, Desailly £5 million, then when you couldnt pay the debts and were about to go bankrupt your sugar daddy came along.
iceman10
lol, oh simmy, you get what i said!
k_chelski
Well the players Iceman listed tots up to £49Million so there goes that argument.
simmy8_2000
Wait wait wait.Hahahah, flv, i thought it's pride, nothing but pride, hahah.The truth is, it's not pride nothing but pride, you blame the referee, you blame everyone.It shows you it's not just pride.
k_chelski
No simmy, it's still valid.Real has spent alot alot of money.And they've been in a looong time without winning.It doesn't make them losers, they're the club of the century.
k_chelski
After watching the kids run circles around your so called superstars for 60 mins of the cup final last week, I felt lots of emotions, and one of those was embarrassment for your team! I think Roman would share some of those feelings too! Hence why he blanked the congratulatory visit to the changing rooms and the after match parties!
flv
k-chelski, you contradict yourself all the time! Every time anybody makes a point about Chelsea's history you always talk about the present! You say, 'Real Madrid are the team of the century'! No my friend, because on your terms they would be the team of last century!
flv
And I thought that before RA cmae along you had spent less in total than Real Madrd spent on Zidane.
simmy8_2000
Nah nah nah.I said they're the team of the century.I didn't mention wich century!
k_chelski
change 'team', with 'club', just to avoid confusion!
flv
Flv, when someone wins an award.Even if it's not in the same year, he's still the winner.This award is once a century.Until next century, Real madrid is the club of the century.Simple as that.
k_chelski
Dear oh dear! Shovel, deeper hole anybody?
flv
The major difference between Chelsea and Real Madrid is that RM made their millions by being a great club and winning trophies, Chelsea got theirs from a russian crook!
simmy8_2000
Alright, let me press the edit button, lol.Simmy, before the 2000's, I don't think, we spent more than 30 million.I could be wrong though.
k_chelski
Shovel? We're into using machiney now FLV.
simmy8_2000
'edit button' you mean 'let's backtrack' because you were wrong. Go and do some research, come back and try again.
simmy8_2000
Difference between the money you've spent on Shevchenko and the money Real spent on Zidane is that Zidane paid his transfer fee back in full where as Sheva's goals cost about 5 million quid each, and most of them were against lower league oppo.
Rocky7
Do a little research , and you'll find out that Real madrid used to buy players from several countries.They weren't poor.
k_chelski
No, simmy, read what i said, i stick with everything i said.The edit button is a joke, because flv told me to change team for club, to avoid confusion.
k_chelski
Real Madrid, the team of the century! I bet that you support them as well eh? Well why not ask Celtic supporters what they think about your team of the century! Brazil, Chelsea, Real Madrid! There's a slight pattern forming here! Your favourite team in Italy must be AC Milan, Bayern Munich in Germany maybe?
flv
Rocky, honestly, do you believe, if chelsea bought zidane in his prime, he would adapt as easily as he adapt in madrid?
k_chelski
hahaha, flv.Sorry for cheering for my country.I'll cheer for argentina then.I don't support them, i just use them as an example.I do respect them.They are the proof money doesn't buy trophies.
k_chelski
Did Real Madrid have a sugardaddy? No, they got their money by becoming a big club, they didn't become a big club by getting loads of money!
simmy8_2000
Machinery Simmy? No mate, this is Wales! Shovel it is! Fuel of Britain isn't it?
flv
Do you want me to mention 6 clubs who didn't have 20% of Liverpool's or Manchester budget, and still are big clubs?
k_chelski
Hope you were cheering your country when Baps scored this afternoon or is it just selective patriotism?
flv
flv, i look out for all brazilians who play in europe.Regardless of their club.I could say brazilians saved your arses a couple of times this season.
k_chelski
So why Chelsea? You're so patriotic yet you support a team with no prominent Brazillian player. I reckon you're just one of those who likes an argument, though I reckon you need to go and have a bit more practice on Vital Spurs, haha 8-) And don't go giving me any crap about the Portugal/Brazil link either! One is clearly shaven, the other............8-) Hope you get the humour?
flv
I'm not patriotic.I'm just looking out for them.If i wanted to support i team with brazilian player, i would cheer for my local team!!
k_chelski
Vital spurs, nah way.
k_chelski
lol k-chel Leaving a comment on vital Spurs is like running stark naked through a jungle full of hungry cannibals!
flv
The last time i went there, i had to fight single handedly with 50 of them!IT went on with a 200 post article.lol.Of course i enjoy debating, one of the great parts of football.And you'll all know what i'm about, vital arsenal, vital chelsea, they wouldn't be so funny without me!THat's a fact.
k_chelski
Ah well, on that humorous note, I've got sheep to attend to! Nos da!
flv
Ive watched and read this article closely... and ive come to the conclustion that this k_chelsea speaks the most unbelievable bollox ive ever heard! tell me k_chelsea, how long have you been a chelsea fan? the same amount as time the rest of your fans.... since 2005? "Where were you when you were *****???" "***** club no history, ***** club no history" The fact of the matter is, you had to come back from the brink of bankruptcy by having a criminal russian spend £hundreds of millions playing championship manager with a dodgy west london football club. Youve won some trophys sure.... but uve paid for it! £80 million pound loss this season... £50 million last season. What happens when the dodgy russian gets bored watching his long ball merchants? (some say he is already starting to... no congrats in the league cup final, missing 5 games last month whilest on holiday) I tell you what happens.... he leaves Chelski millions of pounds in debt, with a wage bill that is the equivalent of some countires national income, and chelsea fold... oh dear! Tell me k_chelsea, was it worth 2 league cups and 2 premierships........ you'll all end up going back to being Fulham supporters.
D4NNYT
Hahahaha, really?Me, bollox?, oh dear oh dear.I wasn't the one feaking out after a few defeats.Yeah, i read your article critcizing stevie wonder.Okay, D4NNYT, before the chain of posts start again.Since i was 14, good enough for ya?
k_chelski
You know, you shouldn't call people criminals, you don't have any evidence.What country?Hahahaha,let me worry about my charmain, you don't have to.
k_chelski
Oh feck, 10, not forteen.
k_chelski
A Brazilian chelsea fan is the equivalent of a moslem Bush supporter, crazy mixed up kid.
nikolaijns
hahaha niko, you know it was a good day, we have seen the future, which as a chelsea fan you can't, the future with chelsea is one without mourinho, and with a few of their players past the 30 mark, a future that isn't as bright as arsenals, thats the difference of last week.
PUREGOLD
hahaha, brazil didn't play attractive football all the time.1994 World cup.The only attractive football was romario's, not the team.It's not just me, 30k of other brazilian chelsea supporters .Nottingham Forest has a big support here as well.Tottenham is unknown.Shocker.Now let me ask you a question, what will happen if you finish this season trophyless?
k_chelski
lol niko. the kid needs help eh :).
prits
-.- . how old do you think i am.
k_chelski
Kev, if we finish the season trophyless? well obviously we sack the board, lynch Wenger, shoot the team, burn the stadium down and start from scratch!, what a dozy question! I never expected us to win anything this year, with a new home and the loss of two of our most influential players in Bergy and Bobby it was always gonna be a strange season, but one I feel we have coped with admirably (still unbeaten in our new fortress, the emergence of more kids that look like future worldbeaters) The more pertinent question is what will happen if tha Carling cup is the only thing you win?
nikolaijns
well said niko !! this team is going places, and thats why a lot of us feel nothing but pride. im sure we'll all be gutted if we're out of the CL, but it wont be the end of world !! if chelsea dont win the CL this year, it sure as hell will be the end of the road for jose.
prits
That's a big IF.And unlikely to happen, it could be two things.A)Nothing, and mourinho stays.B)They pay mourinho 39 million, and get a new manager.
k_chelski
BTW 30k Brazilian Chelsea supporters LOL!!!!! The future is bright (for Argentina)
nikolaijns
lol, it's bigger than Arsenal's!Hahaha ARgentina, do crappiest football of all time.
k_chelski
c'mon!! they were far more interesting to watch ithan Brazil in the last world cup, the 40 pass goal exceeded both of our national teams entire performances combined. And you better get used to seeing a hell of a lot more Arsenal shirts round your way, with our three fantastic Brazilian superstars, a whole new generation of Samba gooners will arrive!
nikolaijns
30,000 Chelsea supporters in Brazil? Wow, you could almost half fill our stadium.
simmy8_2000
This World cup, yeah.All of the previous world cups, no.Nottingham forest has alot of support here.About 15k.
k_chelski
If Arsenal have so much more history than Chelsea how come Chelsea have four Carling Cup wins to Arsenals's two, winnin gthe first in 1965? How come they competed in Europe before Arsenal ever did (1960), won a European trophy before Arsenal ever did (1971) and have more trophies in Europe than Arsenal have? But Arsenal were known as the Bank of England club for all their excessive spending long before Chelsea, so that's where they do win out. Peculiar kind of history.
Squiddy
Nice to see you've included all Premiership and FA Cup honours in your balanced historical account there Squid. Good job, you aren't covering the history of civilisation because the pyramids would have been made out of giant Toblerone, and the Dinosaurs would have been wiped out by a huge dandelion that had been fired from the elastic band that circles Saturn. 8-)
