Chelsea disgrace themselves | Arsenal finally move for DM

by .



I understand that Jose Mourinho has this thing where he makes all the attention in the press about himself so the players don’t feel the pressure of critique, but the his behaviour of late has really brought his reputation further into the gutter than it already was.

Firstly, the attack on the wife of Rafa Benitez and the fat comments aimed at another manager were pretty grotesque. However, that sort of carry on isn’t even comparable to the carry on with their physio Eva Carneiro.

So here’s how it goes.

  • She enters the pitch to treat Eden Hazard for an injury
  • Eden Hazard is feigning injury
  • Mourinho is furious and critiques her for being naive
  • Mourinho then removes her from the bench moving forward

She’s basically had a massive part of her role removed because she wasn’t aware that Hazard was cheating on the pitch.

It’s beyond parody. You almost can’t believe that even a club like Chelsea could accept this sort of behaviour.

Sex in this matter shouldn’t matter, but for me, she’s one of most inspiring female female figures in men’s football. Roughing it in an industry not known for being progressive in anything. For her to be cast aside (along with a male counterpart) is quite unbelievable.

Not to mention, likely cause for legal recourse. Being effectively demoted for doing your footballing equivalent of civic duty.

Will the manager be lambasted for this? Will the club face intense criticism for this? I hope so. It’s just a horrendous way to treat a person trying to do their job.

Ok, so what about Arsenal? Well, I’ll tell you what’s horrendous. The nightmares I’ve been having about Arteta pinning our midfield against Chelsea when Coquelin picks up a cruciate injury in the next two games.

FEAR NOT. Arsenal have a plan and it’s Polish. Grzegorz Krychowiak; who has a name so hard to spell it should be banned, is in the firing line of the club. He has a €30m buyout clause that we could easily activate. Hopefully we make that happen. Why it took an opening day loss to ramp up interest is beyond me. However, from reports I’ve had on him, he’s pretty damn good. He’s also Polish. Those guys are fighters on the pitch. We need as many of them as we can get. The team looks a bit timid at the moment.

Tomorrow, I’ll be reporting from Spain. MoneySupermarket have sent me there to report on the importance of travel insurance. They know I’m a total liability and I absolutely adore the intricacies of insurance policies. Anyway, I’ll be there to see Bilbao vs Barca. Pretty exciting away game!

Finally, check out this from Chuba Akpom. Second in two… this one from the bench. Really love this kid, reckon he could be amazing. Reminds me of Anelka the way he glides…

    He’s a magnificent footballer obviously, but there’s something about his face and his lack of a chin that I just want to slap.

    He looks like he should be in a basement somewhere playing World of Warcraft until 4am.

    Anyone who clatters Messi has my blessing, really do not care for him and I can’t put my finger on why…

    Could it be the tax dodging? Or the fact he can headbutt players and get away with it. I love the guy but he could be found in a run down motel with a dead hooker and a bunch of drowned puppies in the bathtub and Barca would spin it like he was an angel

    Of course Arsene was acting in his own interests on both sides. .

    What still beats me till this very day, if the reports at the time were true, was that the Lille Chairman offered Arsene either Gervinho, or Hazard..Yes he wanted Hazard with Gervinho money. .

    But came away with Gervinho. .
    Another scratch your head moment. ..

    Dutch great Ronald De Boer on Yaya Sanogo:

    “Writing in Voetbal International, the Dutch football legend offered up a pretty scathing assessment of the Frenchman: “I heard Frank [De Boer] say last week that this is one of the best squads with whom he has ever worked.

    “However, when I see Sanogo, I still have my doubts. I have still found no qualities with which you can do something.”

    Can’t see us getting Krychowiak if he’s merely a beefier Coquelin boasting the same footballing inadequacies. Certainly un-Arsene like to splash 22mil on a taller version of what we have.

    If we do pull the trigger on that one you’ve got to question the management and scope for the transfer window AGAIN. Guy has a release clause ripe to activate and we’re waiting until an opening day defeat to pull the trigger? Hmm. Also think Schneiderlin was a massive error in judgement, Wenger totally talked himself into thinking Coquelin was actually good enough only to have reality slap him upside the head in the form of a Coquelin cross-field pass……or seven.

    It’s the Villa knee-jerk all over again, and frankly I think we’ll see Benz fall short and we’ll end up spunking big coin on someone like Gotze who isn’t a priority. All too similar with Arsenal again sadly.

    Some twitter ITK’s saying today is the last hurdle for the Benzema deal to get done. They’re all reporting we’re negotiating the pay structure and add-ons with Madrid today with a view to getting the deal done for early next week.

    You know it’s desperate when I find myself rooting for twitter twats to be right…

    the Express(yeah, i know) reckon Jack’s recovering faster than expected.

    and Bild reporting Schalke have rejected Juve’s latest offer – 15m euros up front + 15m performance related – for Draxler. Juve seemingly dead set on being the hipster’s club of choice.

    Morning. Bit bizarre on here yesterday ?

    Big game on the weekend. Win and then beat lpool next week and we’re back on it. Lose those two and there’ll be mayhem and title over by september. We’re capable of both.

  9. Wallace


    yeah, the lunatics have been unleashed 🙂

    was concerned about the Palace game even before last weekend. big test. but if we’re serious about being contenders…

    Are you on some sort of challenge to fill a post with as many clichés as possible while still keeping it relevant?

  11. Champagne Charlie

    Perverse question of the day:

    Is it better for our transfer prospects to NOT win Sunday and see some knee-jerk reactive transfers, or win and likely see last weekend swept under the rug before failing the Benz pursuit and bringing Llorente in

  12. Honest Bill

    Have got to agree with De Boer tbh. I’m not even sure what it is that Sanogo is supposed to be good at.

    Honest have you seen the DNA report then? I think you’ll find it’s in the back pocket of your shell suit… 😆
