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.

Video: Sunderland v Chelsea

May 29, 2009

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.

Dizzee Wants To Work With Eminem

May 25, 2009


Dizzee Rascal’s latest single Bonkers is already the biggest single of the year and is a dead cert for number one this weekend. 

The track is produced by Armand Van Helden who is the latest in a long line of big name collaborators to work with Dizzee that include Basement Jaxx, Arctic Monkeys, Lily Allen, UGK and Calvin Harris. And if Raskit has his way then it’ll be a certain Slim Shady who he turns up on a track with next.

“I’m happy Eminem’s back. I’d definitely like to work with him.” Dizzee who is currently working on another track with Calvin Harris called Holiday told The Sun. “I’d love to do something with Andre 3000 and The Prodigy too.”

One person he doesn’t feel like hooking up with is Michael Jackson. After challenging Jonathan Ross to a dance off, he’s not too keen to buss-a-move wit Jacko. “I don’t think I could pull off the moonwalk.”

Public Service Announcement…

May 22, 2009


Nice isn’t it? Yes, it’s made of several photos from my picture album – fuck T.I.’s Paper Trail cover lol but I digress.

This post is a sort of Public Service Announcement to just inform all my viewers that over the weekend there will be a severe lack of posts due to a very special lady in my life getting married.  This is not an everyday occurance (for most people anyway) and therefore my full efforts and concentration will be on the wedding.  Look on the bright side; this just means that Monday is going to be full of posts so make sure you check back then.

For today, I have three posts planned for you guys at 2PM, 4PM and 6PM – one of which is a UK Premiere.  I also strongly recommend you listen/download the new Charles Hamilton posted earlier, I got this song on constant repeat.

Until then, hold it (no homo).

Bonus: Andrea Mosaic This is the software that was used to create the picture, so download it and create some fly pics for your Facebook/MySpace/Bebo/Twitter accounts.
