    I can only guess at why.

    Let’s start with the truth. For a kick off Roman Abramovic didn’t leave Chelsea … unless you have been living under rock you will know that he was forced to sell the club in a politically motivated move by the British government (on US government orders)…to who knows who… AND to write off all the debt owed to him. As dodgy a deal as you will ever see.

    So Chelsea were effectively unable to even trade for months. Unable to sell anything at all - this was only the Spring of 2022! The club was then “sold” gifted or handed to a geezer by the name of Todd Boehly.. And with a huge surplus of cash - almost certainly Roman’s - the embrace on a splurge. Signing up player after player to 7 year contracts. Seemingly they went from over scrutinised to immune from legality the minute the Russian owner is replaced with a Yank.. but I will park that for another time.

    Fast forward all the way to this summer - a year after the official “takeover’ and despite finally appointing a decent manager - they are floundering. The effects of so much upheaval - thats’s 4 successive managers in 365 days!!! They have been in such a state of flux that until recently they didn’t have even have a shirt sponsor. They are owned by a buffoon who believed he too knows this sport.

    Currently they are 15 points behind us with the best manager on the planet!

    Do I think they will finish above us?

    Based on their abysmal form this season - no - BUT as we all know things can change.

    SO that’s Chelsea …

    As for your angst.. what could it be?

    The fact that Darwin hasn’t as yet proved to be the second coming? Despite claims that he is on course to be better than Luis? by the stats..?

    Or that we have - to date - fared better minus Super hero - Super Mac even when going down to 10 men.?

    Or the realisation that claiming Real’s success is down to very low net spend - is so deeply flawed?

    That bringing them into a discussion about Premier League Net spend is ridiculous.

    That failing to accept that Real Madrid operates on a different plane to all the rest shows a deep lack of knowledge?


    Many things that I could guess at.. but this latest Chelsea BS.. WTF?



    It seems you will try anything to deflect from the clear and obvious reality.

    We know that clubs can spend a fortune and not find success - most clubs don’t have the management in place to benefit from OR attract the players needed to build a legacy. BUT when you have one in situ…and you e genuine aim is to capitalise on it to the fullest.. YOU BACK HIM TO THE HILT. This is the point and this has categorically not happened.

    Dragging in United - who have won far far more and out
    spent us for decades is ridiculous - citing Chelsea who have also massively out spent us and won far far more is also ridiculous.

    Klopp has won us 2 of the major titles that matter. One of each..
    You pressed me for an answer, would we finish above Chelsea back in summer 2023.

    I'm sorry when you were freaking out that you forgot that roman had gone and your whole concern was incorrect due to your failure to remember such details.

    Before you remembered key elements of your thinking were forgotten, like Roman, your argument was poch and the massive investment, the giant net spend.

    We're now 15 points ahead of Chelsea, yet you seem unsure if that's a fair reflection of Chelsea... potentially climbing up the table.

    I wonder if the tables were reversed, and Chelsea were 15 points ahead of us after 15 games, would you have the same doubt about who would finish above the other.

    I pick Suarez routinely to display a good goal&assist record. Darwin has a very good goal&assist per minute record.

    You seem to think I have angst, fascinating....

    The rest of your babling has been addressed in another thread, you backed out of that thread as the data doesn't support your opinion.

    We're 15 points ahead of Chelsea, you say Klopps the best, but you've doubts if Klopp can manage to stay ahead of Chelsea after their massive spends.

    Well.... I'll keep an eye on the points difference and see if Klopp fails to finish above Chelsea ..... because he has so many poor players compared with chelsea... or because it didn't cost fsg/lfc enough to assembled the squad that he's happy about.

    IF Jurgen Klopp has been manager of the most successful club in the land for 7 years, and is rated as better than Pep by even Gary fooking Neville - WHAT could it be that has meant we have only taken 1 of each major title. 1x League and 1x European Cup. Why is that we suffer these “blips” rather than the odd “Blip”..?


    What could it be that has meant we haven’t ever managed to retain a title or win more..?


    Then ask yourself What would Jurgen have won at City - Chelsea, or United..?

    I am confident if anyone switches their brain on after looking at the budget that Jurgen has had to work with - they will know the answer. Those who don’t…I call deluded.
    You should ignore the vast majority of that cunts musings. Even Klopp has called him out as a tit.

    What's the most desirable result in the Aston Villa v Arsenal game?

    Are we rooting for a draw or an Aston Villa win?

    Aston Villa will probably fade as the season goes. Arsenal won't....
    Villa for the win today!

    Well I fancy that most will want a Villa win as it deprives Arsenal of the most points, but personally given that we would still be top (goal difference) if it's a draw I think I'd rather the draw so both sides miss out.
