I cannot believe what I have just seen!!! Into stoppage time against the Champions, with a replay at Stamford Bridge (where we haven't won since '94) on the cards! Didier "cheating twat" Drogba goes down without being challenged and what do we do?
Instead of going for the kill, we fanny around wondering whether to kick the ball out so we are seen as good sports! And in the end we squander possession with a ridiculous crossfield ball that was probably played in panic because nobody had a clue what to do!!
I cannot believe this! Drogba has a history of this. He is a cheat.
Now let me ask you, do you really think Man Utd would have done that? Would they fuck!! That instance just sums up why we always fall short! No guts and certainly no killer instinct!! I am apalled.
You can come on here all you like and slag Moyes for his "interesting" team selections but we must look at the players! It was, and fair enough I might be getting carried away here, an act of cowardice! Poor little us doing ever so well to get a replay against a "big" club like Chelsea.
It was a pretty good performance, especially in the 2nd half, but that moment in stoppage time has truly pissed me off. PATHETIC!! No excuses! Grow a fuckin' pair.....rant over, for now...

If it had been the other way round... THEY would have carried on.

My only question is,does nobody else know how to take a corner left or right.
Yes Bainsy laid it on for Louis but he got caught later on out of position when they scored. Surely a more forward player should be taking corners from the roght side?

We should have played on, but if you're angry, it should be at the deceiving selfish child spoiling the game, not how we react to her.
14 Posted 29/01/2011 at 18:28:56
In the grand scheme of things it was a minor incident. We should have just played on, especially considering it was Drogba, maybe if he was laid out not moving we put it out, but not with him crying and rubbing his leg.
I would say he was a disgrace today, but he does it every game against every team. Maybe his ego is bruised thinking he will be the second best diver at the club when Torres becomes his teammate.

Good performance today though, unlucky not to win, were can we find a good striker on a free?
17 Posted 29/01/2011 at 20:13:21
I actually looked at 2 of my kids when we watched Drogba rolling around and told them if I ever saw them do that I'd pull them out of any game they played in instantaneously and embarass the shit out of them in front of everyone.
I then mumbled something about Drogba having no penis... and he should play in a co-ed league.
His displays are disgusting.
If i were on that pitch I swear it would have only taken about 2 minutes for my studs to find that guy's nuts. As I'm not sure he actually has any, I say this hypothetically.
That shit is exactly what makes soccer ugly. And we shoulda shown the man how to "man up" and someone should have sent a message that you don't pull horseshit like that when you play Everton.

He and many others act this way week in week out especially the non-British players and it's been like this ever since the Prem was an open league for them to ply their trade.
The problem lies with the authorities and the mandates the do/or don't give the referees.
The whole sickening scenes that are ruining our National game is down to the authorities for allowing it to continue to fester.
I just saw a re-run of the 1976 cup-final and never once saw any player clutch and grab another in the penalty area. Today referees turn a blind eye to it or at least penalise the attacking player rather than have the guts to call a penalty on the defender who is usually the first offender.
This is basically encouraging defenders to do it at will.
The point is obvious, Fifa, F.A. and football league get your house in order and rid the game of cheats like Drogba.

Drogba's a cheat but we did not give in to his bullsh*t we just wasted posession.

Felliani is bossing things in midfield, Baines looked like life can and will go on without Pienaar and Saha is now putting the ball in the net.
After Arsenal, we've got Blackpool and Bolton ? both winnable games if we carry on playing like this. Who cares if Drogba is a cheat, I think we all know the result didn't depend on him rolling around in the 92nd minute!
25 Posted 30/01/2011 at 12:54:44
For Chelsea's goal we were hit on counter attack and I was screaming for Coleman to take a booking. Just get in to Anelka (i think) and foul him.
Re-group, get numbers back and defend and don't concede!
26 Posted 30/01/2011 at 13:24:43
However, now that the dust has settled, I fear that whilst we may get a draw in the replay, we will go out on pens.
27 Posted 30/01/2011 at 13:50:15
We lack killer instinct in this case, that yes, we had brought it back twice, but we should have been going for the win. Fellaini should have picked that ball out of the net and ran to the centre circle urging the players to make one last attack to possibly put the game in our favour.
Moyes again ecstatic with a draw. Against West Ham as we came back, and against Chelsea as we held on.
This is not the case.
I am angry with both results as we are more than capable of beating them both.
