    Not our fault if teams like yours bend over, drop their pants and get raped at home to Chelsea.
    Obvious that you
    a) didn't watch the game, or
    b) don't know how to interpret the images.

    Try slow motion?

    But your fault you bent over for Liverpool and lost to the mighty Burnley
    5 wins, 1 draw and 1 defeat for Burnley at Turf Moor. That's pretty mighty home form actually. For once, you're right about something :eek:

    I don't know how we managed to get away with a point against Burnley, we were so poor.

    What do you guys reckon the chances are of Chelsea running away with the title?

    The Christmas period will be important but they just look very solid and cannot see them dropping many points. Drogba looks unstoppable some times and think the Golden boot will be between him, Rooney, Defoe and Torres if he can stay fit.

    Scolari had a great start last year and then start crumbling some time around now didn't he?

    I can envisage Utd keeping the gap as it is at present, especially after a look at the fixtures of both teams in the next few weeks.

    I can't see Chelsea dropping many points either, the only hope is the ACoN and the changes in tactics and personnel that that will bring. Deco isn't good enough for the PL and that will come to light in January. Another thing to consider is the possible transfer ban that may force Carlo to buy players in January and then try and fit them into a winning team.

    He certainly did, but I can't see the same happening to Ancelotti due to his far greater experience of club competition/management.

    I feel sorry for them really. Having to pay extraordinary agents fees & ending up with players like Jason Scotland & Olivier Kapo. Ouch, that hurts

    2224: That's a very good point. What channel is Sam Allardyce is watching this game on (see 2215)? Maybe he's just got his earpiece in and Neil McDonald is giving him the running commentary.

    Ballack misses a penalty (or saved, if you're pedantic). Funny stuff.

    Germany denied by England :gah:

    Kakuta, the best prospect in the league, missed the final penalty. Happy days, it's not even worth WUMing in the Chelsea thread.
