Massacre at Manchester, yet crisis is at Chelsea!


It’s not the first time, it won’t be the last time we are going to be experiencing this sort of biased treatment by the media. Heck, we are to be blamed as we have not yet adapted ourselves to their habits! Yes, you guessed it right; I am talking about the constant negative scrutiny that Chelsea have had to face time after time. It is like a magnifying glass that is hanging over us, constantly highlighting every activity that goes on at our club, how I wish it would highlight our better part too.

This week again the talk of the papers were not how Chelsea managed to win their derby 2-0, but the remarks from Jamie Redknapp and Ruud Gullit formed the highlighted story of the weekend. As much as I agree to either one’s comments about Mata, it really isn’t something that has to be the topic of discussion week after week. It doesn’t help our club, hell, it invites unwanted ideas into our players heads. Chelsea lost to Everton, lost to Basel? Oh, Chelsea is in a crisis? Hell no! We do not care about your over exaggerations! Like Mourinho said, crisis is at Syria, not at Chelsea.

It is not just about this past week, remember the spectacular way we won the Champions League? Ofcourse you do! We remember it for the bravery and the never say die attitude of our players. Well what does the world remember? ‘The Worst Champions Of Europe!’ How are we the worst Champions of Europe? Inter Milan applied the same damn ideas a couple of seasons ago, and they were applauded, and suddenly our playing style is described as negative and labeled THE CHELSEA BUS? It is an argument that you cannot win, and like every Chelsea fan might have already stated a hundred times, there is nowhere written in the rule book of football that a team cannot adapt a defensive, rather than offensive approach to their game. If you look closely, Italy themselves have used the same approach for long, slowly adapting the counter attacking style ofcourse.

And the next argument? Mata being benched? Torres being benched? Chelsea destroying careers of players? Let us just take a look at our Premier League rivals, shall we? Liverpool, Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing were impressive players at their previous clubs, at Liverpool, well we all know how bad they failed. All that while, the media never left Torres off the hook once, did they? Manchester City, this season they bought Jovetic, a lad who was counted among the best players in Italy, to compete against the likes of Aguero and also new acquisition Negredo. Hardly surprising that Jovetic had to help himself only yesterday against Wigan Athletic, with two simple goals. Champions of England? Hey where is that guy you brought in to compete with our Eden Hazard? What was his name? Err….Shinji something? I haven’t seen much of him yet in the PL. Not even on the bench these days. He was a prodigy at Dortmund, someone who made the club tick, and yet Man Utd decides not to even include him in the squad for game, yet no one points that out, do they? Alex Ferguson effect perhaps!

Coming back to Torres now. The world never let go off the miss that Torres made in front of goal. Yet, can anyone remember anyone mentioning how Van Persie scuffed a tap in, without a goalkeeper to oppose, just footsteps near the goal line against Leverkuson? The awkward Rooney shot-cross, again without a goalkeeper to oppose in the same damn game? There has been a heckload of such misses, and everytime they compare it and refer it to as Rooney did a Torres, Persie did a Torres! Shall I even pull back history by highlighting the awkward moment where Giggs couldn’t score against an open net against Arsenal I guess?

Talking about Giggs, phew this might in turn turn into Chelsea vs Man Utd debate afterall. Giggs had an affair with his brother’s wife, his family member, what did he lose professionally due to that scandal? Ummm…nothing! Rooney was caught cheating on his pregnant wife with a hooker, he still retains his starting position at England and Man Utd. While when John Terry was caught cheating with his team mates girlfriend the whole world turns nuts. He was stripped off his captaincy, not once, but twice in the months to follow. He was ever punished for every single thing that went wrong. (P.S.: I am not claiming Terry didn’t do anything wrong here, but personal issues should be kept out of the professional fields, like they opted to do for Rooney and Giggs)

Okay, this might be a pointless banter afterall. No reporter is here to read this, and perhaps change his/her attitude towards our club. But wouldn’t it be a great deal if the media for once focused on what we have achieved, rather than where we fail? Every accusation I have made of the other clubs, yes maybe they have a reason to do that. Benching Kagawa, perhaps he wasn’t match fit, perhaps the coach doesn’t think he is good enough; Jovetic might be benched for the same reason, so why the heck do everyone single out us every now and then? It is not like I am saying don’t criticize us, bring on the hate, we have coped with that in the past, and we WILL cope in the years to come! You call it crisis? We’ll call it challenges! And in the end, even after all these challenges; we will still be KEEPING OUR BLUE FLAG FLYING HIGH! Just like we did in the past few years!

    I must say there is alot of sense in your article bro, they just hate Chelsea or somthing of that sort. Adebayor and Vermalein are benched too. But no one says that. All they see is Mata benched.

  3. Peter Nalue says

    If not because of Mourinhos stupid style or personal issue Mata wont be on the bench and the Media wont pep at chelsea i blame Jose for any nagetive report on chelsea by the media

  4. Fresh air says

    tell them bro, there is saying that you are nobody when no one talks about you

  5. chelsea lover says

    2face- ”If nobody talks about you, then you are nobody. . ”

    Let them haters keep hating. I think it makes us stronger.

  6. Fola says

    I had said severally that english press out of their minds hence I will advice chelsea management to ignore them. Anywhere there is Jose the speacial one there bound to be hullabaloo because they no him as no nonesense and he will not dance to their rubbish. As far as am concern there is no crisis in chelsea they are just crazy, after all all the big teams have lost one match round what the hell is the noice about chelsea? Why didn’t they make noice when Mancity lost against Cardiff, Arsenal lost it first game there was no noice, ManU lost against Liverpool the hell was not let loose. I want to suggest that Mourinho should just be looking at them and let them whatever they like but he should focus on winning his matches

  7. Akshat Vyas says

    Terry never did that, it was a false rumour by a newspaper, for which they apologized later on.

    a well articulated article bro. kudos ! #KBFFH

  11. JAYDE says

    Nicely said man; its Chelsea Chelsea Chelsea from the tabloids headlines in and out but we ain’t deterred.

    @ Peter Nalue, you seem to make the Mata issue very personal man… well, if your so bitter maybe you should stop supporting Chelsea fc until Juan Mata is played how you like it. Probably Jose will have to step down as your assistant in order to make you appreciate the fact that players fluctuate in their performances and are not permanent celebrities on the pitch. If you are a professional footballer and asked to adapt to a style, then you have no option than do exactly that.
    We shouldnt help the media to be loquacious. JM is not a dummy either. Obviously he’s got reasons for his decisions/ tactics.

      That person is sick, he is not a true chelsea fans

  14. Anabelle says

    Excellent article! The media can try all they want to create chaos, it won’t happen.

    In Mourinho I trust, and nobody will change that.

    Rednapp has never done anything, as for Gullitt he’s a failed manager jealous of Mou.

  15. Anthony says

    That’s true man!! KTBFFH

  24. K DHEERAJ says

    The way others are focusing on us shows they are afraid that we may not leave any trophy for them by winning all the trophies! Yeah surely they fear us, we lost two matches in a row they felt as if they won a trophy, especially manu fans…… the way they were thrashed in Manchester derby oh! may be they should look at their own team.

  25. mathias okenyi says

    infact u re good writter, let me start from there. And for what media, other fans or club players re saying about our beautiful club ”CHELSEA”. Hmmm, i guess is because we are cynosure and pride to England. For me, i don’t mind what they say……we re the best. BLUESSSSSSSSS
