Sluggish Chelsea Continue Grind To The Title

Jose Mourinho talked of "easy" 1-0 wins in December. Daniel Storey watched a victory that was nothing of the sort, but we are now at a time when result is king...

@:shockmaster, I think the ability to not concede goals will always get you at least a point, whereas the ability to concede on a regular basis is generally considered to something that may well bite you in the ***, even if you are scoring well at the other end. But it is all about perception.

Also, Liverpool fans are starting to sound like Tottenham fans. 'I'd rather win nothing and have games with 12 that we ultimately lose than win 1-0' how ridiculous.

shockmaster (Liverpool) says...

I'm not saying Chelsea aren't more likely to win the league than us, but why is a hard-fought 1-0 win considered a 'sign of champions', while a hard-fought 4-3 win is evidence a team can't win the league? Surely the number of points is the same for both, and Chelsea came far closer to failing to win than Liverpool did.

Yeah dhirt11 cause liverpool played some of the most amazing root 1 football over the years especially with rafa, typical goal would be back post from a corner or set piece, while lamps and the drog where slapping in goals for fun. "It's time to stop criticising Bolton and criticise liverpool" why " cause they play more direct than Bolton" - Jose Mourinho

Lovely picture. Terry and Lampard look like they could star in a film based on Brokeback Mountain and Blue is the Warmest Colour.

..@Alkaline I take your point but I would be pretty narky if we signed players with the quality to go forward yet went missing when possesion was lost. It depends on your mindset, whilst we all love the balls out attack with the hope of scoring a barrel load you run the risk of an absolute hammering on the counter. Quality going forward does not mean you will always score. How many times have we seen completley dominating the opposition only to get beat 2 or 3 nil? And am I the only Chelsea fan who thinks we will win nothing this year? Happy just with CL qualification. (I remember promotion from the old second division watched it on a black and white telly with a tunnock marshmellow-'em were the days)

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think


ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

Wenger hails important win


s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
