Reports today from Spain are linking Chelsea with a bid of £30 million plus for Luis Suarez, and the story seems to be gathering pace in England. The Uruguayan is desperate to leave Liverpool, while the media seem to have decided that we are desperate for a striker. 2 + 2 = 17. There is no doubt that Suarez is an accomplished forward, and he would score bucket-loads at Chelsea, but the idea that we are contemplating a bid for him is ridiculous. Let’s not forget, this is the same Suarez currently serving a ten match ban…for biting Ivanovic! It simply cannot be true.
The disgusting behaviour of Luis Suarez towards the Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has had the whole world up in arms, and even the British Prime Minister David Cameron has made a statement implying that he expects a heavy punishment for the Uruguayan idiot.
He said through a government spokesman: “It is rightly a matter for the football authorities to consider,”
“As part of their consideration, I think it would be very understandable if they took into account the fact that high-profile players are often role models.”
Petr Cech was very disappointed to concede the equalising goal to Liverpool on Sunday, especially as we were leading until the 97th minute, but he says that now the Chelsea players need to relieve the ongoing pressure ahead of every game by taking a relaxing break in between matches.
Cech said: “‘We are in a position where we are fighting for everything,”
“There’s a lot of pressure in the Europa League because we want to win it and we are in the semi-finals.
The Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez certainly had an incident packed return to Anfield yesterday, and although everyone is talking about the disgusting behaviour of Luis Suarez, Benitez is wondering why on earth the referee kept playing after the 90 minutes to give Liverpool every chance to get an equalizer.
He was obviously asked about the Suarez incident after the game, but he clearly had another bee in his bonnet. He said: “I didn’t see anything, I was concentrating on the game and talking about football — we had the game nearly won. Why six minutes extra time? We don’t know. The rules are really clear… so six minutes and 45 seconds more is very difficult to understand.
the stage is set for a nail-biting end to the season for the fans of Chelsea, Tottenham and Arsenal, and Juan Mata thinks that Chelsea should have had all three points against Liverpool after leading right up until the 97th minute of the unusually extended game.
Mata said after the match: “A point is a point but we’re disappointed, that’s the truth,”
“We had the three points until the last second; we tried until the end, we defended well in the second half but at the end we couldn’t.
The Uruguayan striker Luis Suarez proved yet again that he is an absolute animal and should not be allowed to play in any competitive football match ever again. His totally unprovoked attack on Branislav Ivanovic in yesterdays game at Anfield was a vicious act, and his disgusting play-acting afterwards only compounded his guilt and emphasised what a devious, cheating, disgusting excuse for a human being he really is.
Because Chelsea were playing their third big game in six days and the fact that it was a local derby against Fulham, it was expected to be a tough test for Rafa Benitez and the Blues at Craven Cottage last night. It turned out to be anything but, as we eased to a 3-0 win with John Terry marking his 21st start of the season with his first brace of goals in eight years.
Chelsea have the perfect opportunity to put the disappointment of the FA cup exit at the hands of Manchester City behind them. Despite a back breaking fixture pile up, the Blues have got the chance to lay down a marker for a top four finish, after Arsenal failed to beat Everton last night.
We travel the short distance to Craven Cottage to play Fulham tonight, knowing that a victory will put us back into third and a point above Arsenal with a game in hand. Tottenham will be three points behind with the same number of games left, but they have a much worse goal difference, 13 less than ours before kick-off tonight.
The Chelsea manager Rafa Benitez came to the defense of Fernando Torres after the Spanish striker had another difficult night in the Blue of Chelsea. He missed a number of chances and his whole game seemed off against Sparta Prague, and the Blues were only rescued from extra time by a last minute Eden Hazard strike.
“I thought he was playing well. I disagree he was playing badly. But of course we want him to take the chances that come his way. If he continues working like today and playing like he did today, he will score goals. I am convinced about that.”
Fernando Torres has not exactly been the player that Chelsea were hoping for when they signed him from Liverpool for a British record of £50 million in January 2011. It took him over 900 minutes on the pitch to score his first goal for Chelsea which was his only goal from 18 games in that campaign. He did a little better the next year, scoring 11 goals including the crucial late goal against Barcelona that sent us to the Champions league final. His figures have improved again this year, with 15 so far, but he has never rediscovered the sparkling form he showed at Liverpool and Athletico Madrid.
