    as long as that grubby russian crook doesn't get his hands on the big one, I don't give a **** what other trophies they buy
    They've hardly bought their way into winning trophies. Chelsea haven't made a major signing in some time.

    Unlike City who spent £200m on signings and have not a lot to show for it.

    The Glazers WILL draw Man Utd under. £700m debt? Are you insane?!

    yeah it's all big coincidence, they had zero league wins in 50 years on a level playing field, along comes the russian crook with his dirty money and hey presto! 2 league titles...

    99% down to the owner, anyone who denies that must be mad.

    They're still top of the Premier League, so can they win the Double for the first time?
    Yes, and I wouldn't bet against them.

    Gosh, another that hasn't got a clue. Do you really think we'd have won the league twice in a row under, lets say, some drunk man down the street rather than Mourinho? No is your answer.

    Do you really think you would have got Mourinho if it weren't RA and the money?
    Obviously not. We would have stuck with the tinkerman. Undoubtedly Abramovich's money stimulated another succesful era in Chelsea's history, and has massively helped our success in recent years, something he should be thanked more for by the supporters, but that hasn't been the only thing leading to our success, or even 99% of it. You can't really put a percentage on it.

    Preston were away from home. Cardiff are FA Cup specialists in recent years. In two of the last three seasons they have got further than Liverpool, Arsenal and Manchester United. There's also been an increase in the amount of football league sides participating in the later stages = more chance you'll draw one of them.

    You've had an easier ride in Europe this season, and have Porto next. We have Inter Milan. You don't see me complaining.

    perhaps you haven' been supporting chelsea long enough to remember this...
    chelsea would have gone into ADMINISTRATION without the dirty money coming in,
    so how then can you conclude that you would have still won without abramovich? you must be living in cloud cuckoo land sunshne

    in the real world you can do sweet FCUK ALL in you have no money. how would chelsea compete to win the league with the -10 point for administration and the reality of having to sell all their best player to meet creditors?

    Chelsea showed to everyone that they couldn't compete on a level playing field, and got themselves in debt that they could not sustain, and it took crook and his dirty money to save you, You're just a way for him to launder money by the way.

    oh wow..preston..im shuddering in fear.. what i mean to say is you've never had tougher opponents for the last 5years or so in the cup until last 4 onwards..

    we've both had the same level of opponents this season..you had cluj, cmon..and a morally drained Athletico who if were on better form would have posed a bigger threat but they didnt so it was easy..

    Porto are still a good side and could give us a run for their money..

    Yeah, but Abramovich came in when Ranieri was still manager, he didn't win anything under Abramovich then in comes Mourinho. It's not all down to the money. It takes a hell of a coach to merge a team into a successful one that can win back to back premierships. Mourinho leaves, we get Grant - Abramovichs buddy - who gets the sack for not winning anything, then we're left with Guus Hiddink and Ancelotti who are two brilliant coaches. Hiddink has a hell of a history, as does Ancelotti who is doing a fantastic job.

    aw bitter much?

    the FA cup shouldn't be very difficult to win from here on. the league will be the main challenge, the chase will go on till the last game imo.
    Not really, look at the teams Man Utd and our good selves have fielded in the FA Cup - certainly not the same team we'd field in, say, a Champions League match.

    Yeah, you only started with Rooney, Berbatov, your first choice CB pair (vidic/rio injured), first gk (vds injured), valencia and giggs having over half an hour etc. It wasn't like it was a kids team.

    That was about 3/4 as strong as you could go. And you got outclassed. By Leeds.

    Arsenal's potentially hard games left: Spurs (a), Citeh (h), Stoke (a)

    Chav$ki's potentially hard games left: Citeh (h), Utd (a), Villa (h), Spurs (a), Liverpool (a)

    United's potentially hard games left: Everton (a), Liverpool (h), Chelsea (h), Citeh (a), Spurs (h)

    Who looks like they'll drop least points?
    Arsenal always **** up, no offense but they have no chance seriously.

    Its all down to chelsea vs united. and the liverpool/ city games

    I think you'll find leagues are won not just against the big sides, but against the smaller sides too. No one expected us to be thrashed by Wigan etc, surprises are yet to come and you can't take ANY game as a granted three points. Who the other games are against are just as important.

    Edit: Hull, Blackburn, Wigan and Birmingham away are hard games too for you.

    no offense but the FA cup has been Arsenal's most realistic target for the past few years. to say that you weren't interested in winning it is just silly. by the way Stoke were playing (and the Arsenal defense) i don't think it would have mattered what team you had out there anyway...
