Sadly (for me as a UTD fan) it looks like you may be right.

In the The Sun today, the chief sports write Steve Howard, says how Chelsea owe a debt of thanks to the paper, for exposing last year, the talks between Sven and Roman, about the up-coming vacant managers position at the Bridge.
If Sven had of taken over, Howard quite rightly, states that there is no way that they would be 10 points clear at the top right now.
It would be Arsenal and UTD fighting all the way, leaving Sven's Chelsea (Veron/Bridge/Cole/Johnson - along with many other italian 'stars' drafted in for an absurd amount of cash) fighting for 3rd place.

actually they should thank Costinha

if he hadn't scored in the last minute at Old Trafford, Porto would have been eliminated

and who would have bothered about Jose Mourinho then?

See poor Man United were expecting the rule that has been in force in England for the last decade that if the match is at Old Trafford you play injury time until Manchester United win.

He's the best player at the club though. I think it's nice that someone finally reacted to the the fact that a major club is run at the whim of Alan Shearer.

...and so Bellamy is in the process of doing a deal with Birmingham. Well, if Bruce can cope with Robbie Savage (the 2nd biggest knob in English Football) then maybe he can put Bellamy to good use.


3-1 UTD today btw - Boro will score first.

Agreed. I don't get why every pundit (or Graeme Souness) rattling Bellamy as thinking he's bigger than the club (which he is) and you've got Alan Shearer around.

Now I like Alan Shearer, I think he's a brilliant striker who seems to be able to score both the bread-and-butter goals as well as the spectacular ones. However, the last two managers who dropped him got fired. Coincidence? I don't think so.

That said doesn't change the fact Bellamy, apart from Robbie Savage, is possibly the biggest prick in the whole league.

A bit of a tangent here, but do you UKers have tickets to see the band? They're playing loads of football stadiums in Europe and I'm curious to see where you're going. Don't worry, I won't beg for tickets - being thousands of miles away kind of hinders that.

I'm going to Cardiff with a couple of mates with my presale tickets and I'm going to Twickenham 2 on my own. Hoping I can somehow get a ticket for Twick 1 before June and i'm trying for Dublin tomorrow.

Another win for Chelsea this is just getting boring but back to Bellamy I thought the point of management was to handle difficult people and situations when you aren't neccesarily comfortable with them and putting the team rather than yourself first. Souness has always been useless at this maybe he got the job because he is one of the few with an ego to match that of Alan Shearer.

Peter Hill-Wood is going to the F.A to report Chelsea for apparently 'tapping up' Ashley cole - which if found guilty, they could be deducted points!!

oh...if only this actually goes though, i'm sure it wont tho.
