The Contenders Do Battle


This weekend see’s the second battle this season between the top two teams in the Premier League after a feisty encounter (pictured above) in the FA Community Shield back in August of this year.

Chelsea won on penalties (4-1) and the signs back then indicated that these two clubs looked the strongest going into the season and as it stands with a mere two points separating the sides going into this clash.

    It’s a bleak day in hell when a club as soulless as Chelsea are favourites to win the Premiership.

      Thanks for your opinions and cheers for reading,

      Sport is about opinion! Soulless or not they are the best team in the league and as many Spurs fans were saying to me earlier in the season after winning their first four games, the table does not lie.

      If it was about soulfull clubs winning trohies then thats a different debate all together.

      Cheers, Gaffers

    Your logic is correct, but it doesn’t stop the hatred I have for Chelsea which can often be quite cathartic.

    But thanks for bringing up how the table looked after 4 rounds. Happy days indeed…

    Good post about this weekend’s big match up between Chelsea & ManU…I like Chelsea to come out victorious at Stamford Bridge 1-0.

      Thanks very much,

      I am not the greatest fan of either team but it would be nice to see a break in the winners of the league after United’s recent title successes.

      1-0 would be a tight game, hope there is more goals.

      Keep reading, Cheers, Gaffers

    You know what? I’m gonna’ go for Man U for a couple of reasons.

    I actually like watching Man U, and I really think that they will rise up eventually and win the title this year. I like most of the players and I like the way they play.

    Chelsea, on the other hand, have a habbit of annoying me by spoiling my enjoyment of supporting the underdog by going behind at every bottom of the table side early on, only to then score six goals and win, just as they were expected to. ( I also can’t stand Ashley Cole )

    So Man Utd for me. I’m sure there are much more footbally reasons but I’m drunk so they’re not important at the moment.

      Thanks for your comments Mick.

      Football does offer us all the individual hope and choice to follow who we wish. But our dislike for teams can’t get in the way of the truth.

      Enjoy your sports viewing.

      Cheers, Gaffers

    Great analysis, insights, and logical development of viewpoint. Amazing, I am getting high quality articles through my inbox and for free. I am just lucky to be a Chelsea fan and we going to have some red meat well cooked, I am starting to forget the special one. Well that’s because we have extra special manager now!!
    Special Team! Special manager! And very special article!
    Well Done D!

      Hi Bamba,

      I knew you would like this piece and I appreciate your comments.

      Keep reading and I agree that Ancelotti is going to replace Mourinho as a special manager for Chelsea.

      Cheers, Gaffers
