    2012 and 2013 Champions of Europe [2014-2015]

    What a mental game. It was a game of you-score-we-score, the ups and downs in seconds was literally bizzare even for the Premier League. I had a lot of respect for Martinez, but him saying that Costa needs to show more respect to his players was hypocritical. Coleman and co never stopped being...

    Need Palace to take at least a point from City and all 3 against Pool. Unlikely though. (6)

    I don't read Marca but the sites I regularly go to have been repeating these types of reports on Mourinho by the Spanish press, not to mention a few columnists/bloggers singing the same tune of Mourinho leaving all his clubs in mess when he goes out. I don't think we were in a mess after he...

    I like the fact that Chelsea's 'Old Guard' get slaughtered by the press for supposedly getting various managers the sack. But yet they imply/say Jose got what he deserved for the way he treated the 'Old Guard' at Real Madrid, and that his act at Real had worn beyond thin.

    Get in there!!!! Super Frank breaking the record was the icing on the cake on this game, the physicality reminded a lot of the Blackburn game in Jose's first season with us. But job done, we really needed the points to keep Spurs out of it. The only way Spurs can pip us is if we lose to Everton...

    Champions of Europa would sound more appropriate if we win.

    I hate it when Chris Foy referees our games. Hope Aguero gets punished for his stamp on Luiz, seems like an honest tussle so can't understand why he went at Luiz like that. Thought he was an honest player, never knew he had that nasty side to him. Should've gone for it early, we were too...

    For all we know it could be Inter. Seriously though, I wouldn't take any interview from the Sun too seriously, it wouldn't be surprising if they took the quotes out of context.

    Finally Rafa made subs that made sense. I thought the move to bring on Hazard and Mikel for Moses and Lamps were spot on. Lamps let the game pass him by in midfield while Moses was a bit predictable on the wings. Credit where its due, we raised our game while Utd slumped theirs and we were the...

    I don't see Jose coming in tbh, unless Roman swallows his pride and ego and promises a free reign similar to Fergie's at Utd.

    We'd be a laughing stock if we got rid of Rafa now, but then I realized we're that already. The club's decision to put it's eggs in one basket with Torres beginning of the season has backfired tremendously, so who's going to come in from here? Mikel not available, letting Essien go on loan...

    I'd have no problem with that at all to be honest.

    What you implied when you answered Shifty's post was that you could just start with a new squad and straight away win silverware. This wasn't the case with us, or with City(City took two years to get to where they are today). Purchases are made over a couple of years and it takes a season or...

    Ranieri bought in Robben, Cech before he was sacked. Jose brought in Drogba(who rotated with Gudjohnsen), Carvalho(who didn't start many games in the first season), Tiago and Ferreira. Makelele, Duff, Bridge, Joe Cole, Glen Johnson, Mutu were other purchases by Ranieri who were involved...

    Oh dear. Another sign that Roman is not yet ready to give up on Torres. Perfect. I'm sorry but my stomache turned. Maybe Gourlay didn't want to be the only fat fcuk in the boardroom.
