Liverpool 1-1 Chelsea

Premiership
comment on the article

Well, the match at Anfield appeared to have more talking points than your average Question Time programme.

Torres' first goal, referee Rob Styles' performance, the penalty, the decision to play Gerrard.

Where do we start? You decide.

Dalgish, did you read the story?
so wait, a company that styles is on the board of was contracted by a separate firm of estate managers to pave the driveway of an estate belonging to Roman Abramovich's ex-wife 2 years ago?!
Scandalous.

JM was impressed by not falling for Topsy Turvy Torres....must have come to Britain by Sea as he didn't have his land legs around him when a blue shirt came within 2 yards of him.....Surprised he ddnt have a barf bag on the front of his shirt....

It was a bad call by the ref, but I am hoping it even itself out by the end of the season, these things generally do... Of course JM thougth the ref was good, he gave them a penalty which never was... Soem how I doubt he would have been as kind if it was on the other foot

=============

like liverpool you mean, who said "these things happen in football" when they got the freekick against villa. but there was uproar when a decision went against them...

rob styles gave liverpool a dodgy pen this time last year against sheff utd, this year it's against liverpool. but only now does he get banned for a month...

a rule for the reds and another for everyone else.

My latest thought on this is:

How is it that when LFC benefit from a favourable call (as some say we did against Villa) our victories are deemed undeserved and/or only as a result of pure luck but when other teams get similar breaks (as Chelsea did in this match) their victories/draws are considered "well deserved".

Just wondering :)

-----------------------------------


Your question has a simple answer.. and it's bcos when it has to do with chelsea
things dont go too well,i cant talk abt other teams now, their supporters can help their teams.
there is always alot of critisim abt chelsea so when we end up getting the rsult it's well deserved.
does that answer your question?" cest fini"
o.k let me help u abit more.. Remember when someone said Lampard is overrated i laughed abt it cos the issue is not an issue
in the first place, he mustn't score as long as he does his midfield job, though not bad if he gets in one or 2 goals
but wat can u say abt ROONEY..... the biggest hype in England, who has scored very very few goals for UNITED in recent years
even for England he cant remember when last he scored or when he become the highest scorer in d premiership but he's England main man up front, so why call LAMPS O.K COS HE'S FROM CHELSEAS RIGHT?
.. imagine an unfruitful striker in England's color's no one abt it cos he's a UNITED player and not chelsea.when chelsea does things to people it's worthless
when chelsea tries to buy a player,ppl say it's too costly.someone said Malouda is an average player cos he was going to chelsea right?
but Torres cost 20mils.. why?(NO HARD FEELING,JUST MAKING A POINT) what has he done in recent years? FOR spain or Atlectico;he's not even among top scorers and hasn't
won a major trophy in recent years "mark my work not year but years"and Atlectico isnt a great club in recent times where he played for abt 4 or 5yrs as the main man up front..
Let me ask you.. when was last did he play in the Champion's
League??? bet u dont know.. so he's another hype for 20mils, he's good but not for 20mils cos he's a future player only 22 though an
asset for the future. RIO cost 30mil record holder in britian,why????? if u remove vidic from that defense line u will see what im seeing.
and now Carlos Tevez much noise cos he's in man u,less noise with west hamm, the pressure on him is beginning to pile up,maybe he wnt be critize or judged so fast like "........"
and he got all the praises cos he's not chelsea.but when we sign a player people talk.. when we win a match the way others won it b4,they
GACIA scored wat was not a goal against chelsea in the C.League life went on....Liverpool got some requestable free kicks
when u know gerald or riise could convert them but life went on......UNITED get lot of free kicks and penalty whenever they have to draw a game last season
but life went on... they even mostly get enough time added on when they are on a tie but life went on( if u dont believe me take note from now),
im not saying they dont deserve some but some are just not necessary...due respect to UNITED fans..
If u look at these things Chelsea dont complain abt the above listed suituation cos it's not our business,but if chelsea talk they drag it.
im only spoting out things for u to see why when we get a result it's well deserved cos the pressures are there.Now Benitez is complaining abt kick off time..
No other manager countered his statement.. but jose there not say it the whole press and manages will shout. too bad.
Chelsea is not an Average team but a gaint in England since the era of jose,weather anyone accept it or not and we have alot of teams and people
gtting at us.maybe bcos we won the league back to back.you dnt know the feeling when ppl hate u,but yet u are stronger it makes u proud...and we make alot of noises which was normal like any oher team would have done so alot of people hate chelsea for that.
seriously speaking alot of people tell me they hate chelsea..for no reason.. i just smile..(jealousy thats what i call it)

i think and look closely b4 i talk,i expect alot of people too.I respect everyone here, we are all friends it's all abt
one league( premiership),one game(football) and one country (England).. even if we are not all from England but is the focus here.
Let me correct another impression...abt "jose" he said the ref had a good game.. any manager would say that when u are on the winning side
for God sakes he's human..benitez didnt ask the UEFA to cancel that result when it was reveal that ball didnt cross the line, he didnt even nail the ref cos he was on the winning side.
Benitez is doing the shouting now and i know if jose were in his shoes he would do same.. wait till u are in that suituation then u will know what i'm saying.
Jose knew alot of people hated him and he said this season he's not going to talk too much,so he said d ref had a good game,still not good enough to ppl want to force him to talk by trying to single him out.
what does having a good game mean? do you think it was easy handling such a big match? it result was even fair, could have gone worse for either side,he also made a booking error against us he's not perfect.
pls we should leave jose out..he didnt make the decision but to me that was a foul in the box( i can analyse it) but surely liverpool dominated d game. it's a shame benitez and gerald pressured the ref to apologise
and he did,he could not stand by his actions.still trying 2 tanish the image of chelsea...lol "my God" he only fooled himself by being forced to apologise cos we got the point from that match.

so my dear friend.. i hope i answered your question cos u said u were wondering...every team can point things they see, thats acceptable
but my view why chelsea does things and it's tag well deserved is bcos we have the highest critics among the top 4.
they said we played most boring football but it gave us some trophies and almost gave us
the league back last season.my liverpool friend thank God that your coach now knows what it means to spend big, now the pressure is there.. i follow comments abt every mangers
and he's the first to complain abt the f.A,a ref or any team.. first the style issue, later the kick off schedule issue and now the heinze transfer issue..things were said
against the match official,F.A and man united on heinze case..so dont blame jose when he says anything.. man u has spent also and thinking of rushing into the market again due to injuries;
thats how pressured the manager is,when u are under pressure u can't help but talk like jose used to.....now the pressure plies on and extending to other managers and i have started hearing comments.. watch out for more
