Robbie Aiming For Super Cup Success

Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has made it perfectly clear that Chelsea are set on winning the UEFA Super Cup, & are taking the competition very seriously.

“We are happy we are going into the Super Cup final with three wins and everybody fit and hopefully we can win another international trophy for this football club,” he said.

“(I will take it) very seriously. It is not a friendly. It is a European trophy that we want to win, not be resting people (for).”  (Source: SportingLife)

Chelsea are coming off 3 consecutive Premier League victories, with new boy Eden Hazard having been particularly impressive so far. Chelsea have an almost full-strength squad available for the match. While captain John Terry will be forced to sit out of the match through suspension that he picked up after his red card against Barcelona in last season’s Champions League semi-finals, everyone else is available for selection, including Chelsea’s new signings Victor Moses & Cesar Azpilicueta.

Di Matteo may be stating the obvious here, but he’s right to put it out in the open that Chelsea want to compete for & win every trophy that we possibly can. While it’s true that the UEFA Super Cup is simply a one-off match that has been derided at times, it is still a positive sign for the club & the fans that Roberto Di Matteo wants to win as many trophies as he possibly can. It shows that he is not willing to rest on his laurels, which is a good sign for the future. And so what if it is simply a one-off match that is played between the winners of the Champions League & Europa League & has no actual bearing on how a club’s season may turn out? I know I’d love another European trophy in our trophy cabinet, & I’m sure Chelsea fans will agree with me. So come Friday, expectations from Chelsea will definitely be high. But we’ve won trophies before. We can win them again.

    I understand the qsoituen but suggest that it is not a realistic qsoituen. Here’s what I mean. If you are financially able to hunt every big game animal on the Earth then you can afford to purchase more than one rifle. The cost of the rifle is probably the smallest expense of a hunting trip. For example, if you wanted to shoot the Marco Polo Sheep in the Himalayas you want a flat-shooting rifle that will reach out a long distance, say 300 yards or so, and kill the sheep at such a distance. If you were shooting a Cape Buffalo you would want a heavy bullet that will smash through massive amounts of bone and horn and deliver massive tissue destruction. For that you don’t want to use the same rifle and caliber you use for the sheep. Then if you want to shoot an American antelope you want a light bullet at high velocity, again for long range, but you don’t need as heavy a bullet as you would use for the sheep. If you want a moose, you might want something in between. I’ve hunted grizzly in Alaska, moose in Alaska and British Columbia, plains antelope in Africa and the USA, deer, caribou and elk in the USA (lower 48). I’ve used a .375 H H (grizzly, moose and elk and African Antelope), a .300 Weatherby Magnum (elk and caribou and moose), a 7mm Rem Mag (caribou, deer, African antelope and American antelope), a .264 Win Mag (antelope in Montana, deer in California). Now, over the years my favorite caliber became the .375 H H mag. I handload so that gave me tremendous variety and I had a custom made rifle which was extremely accurate. Also I practice a lot and the recoil didn’t bother me (though I freely admit it kicks like hell). So, if you asked for a recommendation for just one gun, I’d vote for the .375 but that’s not a realistic approach. Also, I wouldn’t (and didn’t) begin with the .375. I’d start with something like the 7mm Rem Mag, hunt most big game in the USA and when I was ready for grizzly I’d get the .375. Just one man’s opinion.
