Buck [chairman] said: "We have very high expectations at Chelsea and a couple of second place finishes is just not good enough for us. "So although we never would have thought in September when Jose Mourinho left that we would be able to make it into a Champions League final as we did - and that is fantastic - Chelsea are here to win trophies.

The News of the World: "For all the money swilling around in Chelsea's coffers, the one commodity they cannot buy is class. Everybody is football knew that Avram Grant was no special one. He was merely a decent and dignified man who deserved to be treated with a modicum of respect. But Chelsea don't do respect - they only do heartless, cruel and vicious."
'In my philosophy it was a very bad one because in football 'almost' means defeat and Chelsea almost won the Carling Cup, almost won the Champions League and almost won the Premier League. Almost is nothing.

What i think NOTW were refering to when talking about "Chelsea" was Roman Abramovich and Peter Kenyon. Not the peripheral staff, players and fans. Those guys are the club right now and they make all the decision, even some of the on-field ones it seems. And you can't deny that Roman and Peter aren't exactly your role models that you want your kids to look up to.pede54;2529155 said:Fu<king hypocritical wankers. The NOTW and their mother company, News International have persecuted Avram Grant more wickedly than anyone else. If anyone has been heartless, cruel and vicious it is themselves.
They talk about class and respect as if they actually know what those words mean. Fu<king scum newspaper of the lowest order.

Someone needs to enlighten Jose that there really is more to life than winning cups and titles. His comments are classless, and do not endear me to him at all. Big ego's are a sign of personal insecurity. He needs to stop giving too much away about himself.
Personally I would be VERY against Jose coming back to my club.
Actually it was about 200 Chelsea followers who would not accept Avram. The rest of us were with him 100%. That needs to be remembered.
