    • ... (My style) This is the most replied thread wow!

    • It may be childish, but probably no more so than getting passionate about a football team is childish.

      I don't know nothing about him. I know quite a lot about how he behaves on the football field.

    • "I hate him for the reason I have given."

      Whatever reasons you may have given, hating a player you have never met, and know nothing about, is extremely childish.

    • What a lot of silliness. However, I'll be patient and address it. But I don't think I'll address any follow-up.

      "Okyoky, so you provide no defence for your teams appalling disciplinary record then."

      I'm not sure there is any onus on me to provide any defence for our team's disciplinary record. I observe that a lot of card decisions are rather arbitrary. I think one or two of the red cards Chelsea has received were harsh. But not others. Yellow cards can be bizarre. Joe Cole has received at least two this year when he should have had a free kick and an apology. Whatever.

      I think the whole card system should be overhauled. It provides a very poor disciplinary system. And it benefits the teams with the biggest squads. Getting your fifth yellow card just means you get rotated out that week. Big deal.

      "I've always maintained that your team are boring. We went through this last season, you said that winning was everything and that being shit boring didnt matter.,"

      You maintain what you like about my team. I don't know what comments of mine you are referring to, if any, but I suspect I have never used the phrase "shit boring". I don't find Chelsea boring. It certainly doesn't matter to me if you find Chelsea "shit boring".

      "Do you have input on why Moaninho was sacked ?, did he just get on Romans wick ?. "

      I don't know. And neither do you. Neither do any of us except from what was said by the main protaganists, which was almost precisely nothing.

      "We had all this stuff about you being a more expansive team when the Vogon took over"

      Not from me. I always thought the criticism of Mourinho's teams was overdone and any potential changes were being hyped by everyone.

      "but you still dont rate with anyone who isnt a Chelsea fan"

      I prefer to comment on what people say than making comments on the people. Sometimes my temper gets the better of me. There are non-Chelsea fans who I respect and enjoy reading. I think this is a very confrontational medium.

      "We've got the worlds most entertaining player, perhaps thats why you hate him. "

      I hate him for the reason I have given. There are plenty of entertaining Man U players, past and present, who I don't hate at all. Trust me, I know my mind better than you do.

    • How the fuck do you know who has played what, and at what level? You read a few posts? What a clever cunt you are then.

    • whilst reading all the latest posting's i'm bemused by the fact that some of you have never actually played against players of genuine class and football speed let alone watched a proper game of football as it's not alway's contact below the waist that bring's a player down as i myself found out for many years having refused my father's wishes to take trial's at various club's i stuck with my first choice and joined the armed service's having played against some very good footballers at international level [combined service's ] i had similer problems untill i came upon better players than myself [eg. younger .fitter .and more skilled ] so untill some of the so called critic's and i use the term critic's to mean ex player's and so called reporter's .they should embrace the true worth of player's like ronaldo to the world game as happened in the 1960's like pele was and trust me on this he was as good a player as any past or present but watch enough footage of him and you will he was as big a cheat as any and dirty beyond most peoples belief

    • Okyoky, so you provide no defence for your teams appalling disciplinary record then.
      I've always maintained that your team are boring. We went through this last season, you said that winning was everything and that being shit boring didnt matter.,
      Do you have input on why Moaninho was sacked ?, did he just get on Romans wick ?. We had all this stuff about you being a more expansive team when the Vogon took over, but you still dont rate with anyone who isnt a Chelsea fan. We've got the worlds most entertaining player, perhaps thats why you hate him.

    • Oh I see. You take me too seriously!

      I think you'll find that sentences starting "Everybody knows that..." generally rely on an assumption that is quite probably wrong. This one certainly is. Nobody knows that except anyone who has heard RA say it. I certainly haven't. I very much doubt you have. In fact, I don't even know anyone who claims to have heard it.

      "Your team are dirty cheats Robert, and boring with it."

      Ah, there's enlightenment. Don't feel threatened by Arsenal any more, so lash out at Chelsea, hmmm?

      Lester, this is just too silly, even for us.

      Everybody knows that Roman sacked Moaninho because his team weren't as sexy as United.

      Your team are dirty cheats Robert, and boring with it.

    • For the first sentence, I don't know what you are talking about.

      For the second sentence, you don't know what you are talking about, unless you have a hotline to RA. Are you a mindreader?
