Terry Got Mourinho Sacked

May 30, 2009

Damn, I hope this isn’t true.

John Terry was responsible for the sacking of Jose Mourinho as Chelsea’s manager, according to the club’s former player Claude Makelele. The former Blues’ midfielder makes the claims in his autobiography ‘Tout Simplement’, published in France today.

“I thought Mourinho was practically untouchable, but a lot of players had complained about him, notably John Terry,” British broadsheet newspaper The Times reports the book as revealing.

“When John Terry let his discontent be known to [Peter] Kenyon [the chief executive] and asked him for an immediate transfer, [Roman] Abramovich [the club’s owner] reacted immediately: the departure of Terry was totally unimaginable, from the point of view of the supporters, the players or the club owners. Mourinho was asked to pack his bags.”

The row allegedly took place on the eve of Chelsea’s Champions League tie with Norway’s Rosenborg on September 18, 2007.  Although it is well known that Mourinho and Terry had previously clashed over the England defender’s physical condition, both parties have reportedly moved swiftly to deny Makelele’s claims, with Terry issuing a statement through his lawyers refuting the allegations.  The Times also reports that Mourinho has contacted the Chelsea defender, in order to pledge that he will publicly deny the reports.

Can you believe I missed Ashley’s first and only goal of the season, plus Anelka’s wonder strike?

As you all know Chelsea have an important match tomorrow in what should be a relatively comfortable win.  No shots.  This will be our only trophy of the season but I have a feeling that the 2009/10 season is going to be really special for us, especially if we’re signing the player who I was told about earlier today.  I don’t even think Sky Sports News have reported it yet…

Nigerian Bus Driver Kills Barca Fans

May 28, 2009

A Manchester United fan in Nigeria killed four people when he drove his minibus into a crowd of Barcelona supporters after his team lost the Champions League final, police said on Thursday.

The crowd in the town of Ogbo were celebrating Barcelona’s victory after Wednesday night’s match when the bus drove into them. A police spokeswoman said 10 people were injured and the driver was arrested.

“The driver had passed the crowd then made a U-turn and ran into them,” she said.

Barcelona beat Manchester United 2-0 in what was hailed as a “dream final” between two of Europe’s best clubs. Both teams have large fan bases in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation.

Is there a UEFA conspiracy against Chelsea?

Probably the most ourtrageous refereeing I have ever seen.  Not only did we play the better football with more chances, we were also denied countless decisions including four penalty claims.  I have always disliked Barca and now have further reason to, but this time it is not their diving and dirty tactics (like under Frank Rijkaard) that get to me, it’s their 3 other team mates; yes, Barca played with 14 men…

Sidenote: LOL

Gooner hangs himself after Man Utd match

I really don’t understand why, but it must be gambling related.  If this guy had a family and left behind kids, its probably best they didn’t have a coward to raise them anymore.  Yeah, I just said that.

An Arsenal fan hung himself following his team’s 4-1 aggregate drubbing by arch-rivals Manchester United in the Champions League semi-final, police said.

More on this after the jump.
