A Return To The Bad Old Days In Football

Mon Mar 20, 2006 3:40 am

A bunch of morons sparked a pitch invasion and fighting at the Fulham v Chelsea game at Craven Cottage this afternoon.
What kind of mentality do these people have?
It's only a game fo goodness sake.
If Chelsea supporters are so juvenile that they won't accept defeat, it's time they grew up and realised they are not invincible

Fulham were very good! Another team proves that even with Chelsea's millions if the other team can get their tactics right then they can get the result,and this is just what Chris Coleman did today!  Wink

That's very true. But why the pitch invasion??

They were celebrating beating their local rivals.

OK, it shouldn't have happened, but it was just a couple of minor scuffles. You remember what it was like in 70's and 80's, it doesn't even begin to compare.

Considering how tempers were raised by that appalling "tackle" by Gallas, it was pretty mild.

Yes why the pitch invasion.

Sounds like it was lucky that the stewards held back the Chelsea fans from clashing with the jubilant Fulham fans. The problem is, it takes a couple of idiots to get on the pitch and then everyone follows. Sounds like the Chelsea players didn't do anything to calm the situation with Gallas making a tit out of himself in stoppage time.

Things just might, just might get interesting now. If Manchester United win their game in hand and Liverpool keep on their toes there is a chance that Chelsea may slip up. Admittedly they are now out of the Champions League but with the FA Cup still on their priorities and Gallas now suspended it's going to be a tough time for them. Am I right in thinking Man Utd and Chelsea still have to play each other again this season? If Man U win that game as well as their game in hand then they will only be 6 points behind Chelsea. A couple of games through a rough spell and Man U keeping up the pressure? Who knows.

Money is still on Chelsea retaining the championship trophy though  Wink.

Mourinho was whining like a girl after the game, "the Fulham players put pressure on the referee, they put pressure on the linesmen so they call it not because they see it but because of the pressure." Talk about a sore loser.

I love how when there's trouble everyone assumes it was the Chelsea fans.

I was there - the Fulham fans were out for us before the game. It would have gone off afterwards outside too.

Game was shocking though. Very disappointed.

Actually, although Mourinho is everyone's favourite villain right now, I thought he spoke very well and very graciously after the game. He acknowledged that the decision to rule out the goal was right, and his comment concerned the entirely accurate point that there was no way the linesman could have seen the handball and that it was the Fulham players' pressure that pushed the referee into the decision. He congratulated Fulham on their performance and said that they deserved it. Can't see a problem myself.

English football would be much more boring if Mourinho wasn't in it. I think he's absolutely fantastic.
As for the rioting, typical English fan behaviour  Yeah sure  stirthepot  duck

I thought so too when I saw the interview but people seem to judge what he says before he opens his mouth these days.

Well I guess the interview I saw was the abridged version, he seemed very pissed off and all he did was slag Fulham for their "intimidation" of the officials. He is a character though, I'll give him that.

For some odd reason ($) I don't think he's going anywhere. And as far as his entertainment factor, he's sort of like Bob Knight but not as outrageous. He keeps you entertained but doesn't throw chairs. I remeber when Ranieri was the manager, and things always seemd so boring, I am very happy for the change. Winning of course doesn't hurt, but it is not why I began and continue to support the team.
