'LOVELY JUBBLY AZPI IN NEW MAGAZINE'

lol that title :P

Somebody give this man a new 5 year contract, STAT.
Player of the season. Damn, who would've guessed he'd step up to this level? Amazing.
From the start of the season, I really wanted him to start. From all the changes Mourinho made, I was okay even with benching Mata but I wished that Mourinho could start Azpi. I was surprised that he dropped Cole for Azpi. I believe that he could offer much more if he plays in RB.

As a Life long Liverpool fan from Liverpool its in my blood to HATE united and I hate to say it I love neville along side Carra as a pundit, brilliant to watch and listen too. I hope the united fans can say the same about Carra. They work so well together its weird.

what is funny here is that Liverpool fans are consumed by the hate.
the guy uses hate two times in one sentence.
HATE is in his blood
He hates to admit it.
European Cups

2013 Europa League

2012 UEFA Champions League


League Titles

2009/10 86 points from 38 games

2005/06 91 points from 38 games

2004/05 95 points from 38 games

FA Cups

2012 Chelsea 2 Liverpool 1

2010 Chelsea 1 Portsmouth 0

2009 Chelsea 2 - 1 Everton

2007 Chelsea 1 - 0 Manchester United


That's major titles we have achieved last 10 years (excluding League Cups, Community Shield, etc)
lol enough of this, its getting old
How many billion did those wins cost Chelsea, CapLampard?
What's the resume before 2003?
OP, Give it a break lol. Your post makes you look like a hypocrite. Liverpool fans are full of hate? Aren't you dissing them right now?
+1
And STOP THERE.

Unbelivable4026: Go back to your forum mate, you seem to be looking for a fight. The initial post isn't the greatest topic to bring up but isn't worth starting an argument over.

Badreferee: Please refrain from posts of this nature, there's been so much vicious rivalry lately that we hardly need to add fuel to the fire with a post like that.

Zilch(staff) - in the mood to Status people who continue to cause problems.
When was the last time you won PL?

Chelsea average wage per week £76,626
Liverpool average wage per week £65,457

It's not much of difference is it?

And by the time when the old guards retire, the average will go even lower.

And we are well within our rights to spend on players and we are even making profits out of it. Did Liverpool make profit? NO they reported a loss of £49.8m last year. So stop being jealous of our success and go worry on your own club's financial stability.

Well done Zilch....that pool fan has an essay on same topic on the pool forum but still wanted to bring it here to get some reaction.
Sorry some of us fell for it.

hmm... this table shows avg earnings per player this year. looks like Chelsea is 10th of any pro team in the world at 6.05 mil per player and Liverpool is 20th with 5.17 mil per player.... I can't be sure, but it looks like your little "blue-collar, mom and pop, local" club earns a little over 50% of Chelsea players.

So technically, yes, Chelsea do pay more, but it was an INVESTMENT, as we now get more % of the tv contract $, more ticket sales for higher prices, and more merchandise sales, not to mention we have sold some of those players we bought for decent $.

Maybe look at some facts next time instead of assuming that, just because your team wasn't good in the past few years, that they're a bunch of scrubs scrapping for $.
just saw your post zilch, I guess I could've left out the sarcasm. It just gets to me when people make claims not based off of facts
Please guys... lets not post inflammatory kind of comments. We see enough of these in other forums such as ESPN and youtube. It will be much more pleasant around here if we respect our rivals and we would receive it in turn.
Chelsea have 28 players on loan? That's ridiculous!
Yep. Unbeleivable eh? I think our loanees could have formed a decent team themselves.
tell me about it..

some of us still wanna spend 20 millions on luck shaw when we got some great left backs likes of Patrick van Aanholt and ryan bertrand
Yeah, that's crazy.
It may sound ridiculous to u but to a more learned mind it is one of the smartest business decisions made by any club ib the FFP era.
You have been on about this in ur forum with a long essay ...please learn to give credit where it is due and stop the blind hate.
PS: Bayern have been buying off the best players from bundesliga clubs for ages even during the season thereby unsettling the player and affected team but they are potrayed as the epitome of decency and footballing purity.
Well done Zilch....sorry I already posted before seeing urs.
Not a problem.
The real 12th man

Ba, 2 games, 2 goals, 6 points for us.

Thank you Ba for being patient and helping us getting 6 vital points

#Respect

Ba is our saviour.

Love him.
Ba is boss. He deserves better than playing second fiddle to Torres.
A somewhat reputable source is claiming the Costa deal is close:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/football/teams/chelsea/10768620/Chelsea-closing-in-on-80-million-Atletico-Madrid-striker-Diego-Costa.html

80m ;O

It's a 32m fee and 180k a week in wages. I think the wages are to reimburse him for paying his buyout clause.
Still cheaper than Torres. His wage could have been better but reasonable deal imo.
I hope we'll get him. Best option for us atm amd he'll be yhe missing piece fr our striker.

But lets not get too far ahead since its still a long way to go
And better deal than Rooney as well. His new wage is close to 350,000 which is more than 18M a year. Plus the transfer fee we would have to pay.
torres earns around 175k a week.
Lol @ 80 mil! His release clause is set at £38 mil. What reason would Chelsea have to pay a penny more? Especially if we waive the fee Athletico are contractually obliged to pay for Courtois playing against us.
i'm sure the 80 million includes his wages
£80M came from £38M (Transfer Fee) + £46.8M (5 Year x 52 weeks x 180K)

It's not exactly 80M but rather close to 75M.

If we would have gone for Rooney, we would have ended up paying double that amount (including his wage and transfer fee).
Rooney's wage is £350,000 = £18M a year -> £80M for 5 years and transfer fee close to £45M-50M. £130M NOT WORTH IT

So yes, if this deal is true, it's pretty decent transfer with reasonable price for fantastic player.
+1
at this rate rooney will be making 500k per week by the end of the season

if costa cab reproduce his form for the last two seasons this would be a bargain deal
+1
@C61 - No one said that 80m was the transfer fee. But rumours are the Costa's buyout has increased. Plus you have to also remember Spanish Tax Laws make it complicated.
Didn't Costa just come off an injury and again got injured or something? I hope he doesn't become another Torres for us.
They were really minor injuries if I remember correctly.
Sore hamstring/knee and crashing into a post are signs of an injury-prone player.
His game isn't reliant on pace and confidence lol.
I have a good feeling that we will get through !

+1
I think Ba will start ,lately he has
been more treat than any one .
+1
I won't be surprised if Mourinho plays Schurrle up front vs Atletico. It would be suicide to play Torres, he'll probably score an own goal for them. Ba and Eto'o won't be any good since we'll be sitting deep and pressing.
+1
Eto'o can't score away from home. Ba should start at the Calderon.

He can win long balls and knock it down for the AM's unlike the other 2.
+1
If Eto`o is fit, he has to start hes clearly still our number one striker and lives for these big games, definitely not a fan of Schurrle up front he looks even more clueless then Torres as a CF.
+3
Schurrle is more effective when defenders are occupied with a striker. Eto'o is probably the best option, as long as Schurrle is on the wing, Ba as an impact sub.
+1
yea i agree, eto is our best striker atm.
Eto'o will play at the bridge, not the first away leg. like Theo said, he has zero away goals.
I agree with Ba or Eto'o starting. but saying Torres playing is suicide, or him scoring an own goal is too exaggerating it already. he's never done such a thing with us, and he probably won't.

But I still think Ba should start. they will be attacking, so Ba will have some space to run in behind.

Eto'o will be best at home.it's like he thrives when the fans are chanting and getting behind the team.
Meh, for me our best players should be starting, his away goals is not a legitimate reason to not play him, I know Ba got some important goals but Eto'o is the better striker
