HATE IT! Chelsea FC

The main topic of conversation in my circles this weekend has been the Manchester United-Chelsea soccer game that took place yesterday. I am a staunch United fan and was sickened by the turn of events during the EPL game. United are tops of the league...Chelsea, in 2nd snapping at United's heels. The match was supposed to propel United a further three points ahead of Chelsea all but granting a guarantee that the good guys would capture the EPL championship and all would be well in this world.

That was the PLAN. As we all know, things don't always...go to plan. Chelsea won the match. Two of our players, Vidic and Rooney, left the pitch injured, and we we're forced to watch Chelsea's annoying brand of football. Their take on the game involves a disinterested manager and players that argue continually on the pitch (step forward, Didier Drogba and Michael Ballack). 

Okay, it's bad enough when your own team loses...but it's worse when you have to view the bickering and disharmony of the team that comes out the winner. Chelsea does not deserve to win *any* trophies this year. Soccer/football is a team sport and that type of crap doesn't speak towards the sportsmanlike behaviour that the league is trying to promote. While Ballack and Drogba bicker, the United players truly are united & deserve to win the league title. 

I admit that I *am* biased and United can do no wrong (usually!). Chelsea are evil...well, except for Joe Cole. He's lovely and deserves better -- even if he does have a tendency to wail like a little girl when he gets knocked over. 

Final verdict: Chelsea are the football team that your spoilt cousin cheers for. Enough said!
