  1. Iancransonsknees says:

    Chico off, there won’t be many opposing fans shedding a tear and Andy Carroll will be citing karma if asked his opinion.

    The Blades giving Hull a game, Jose Baxter ex-the new Wayne Rooney.

    • De Selby says:

      I certainly don’t care for Chico, but I care for Mourinho even less.

      Dowd was not going to give Chico that second yellow until the Chelsea players went cuckoo and Mourinho practically assaulted the fourth official.

  2. Christopher Harris says:

    In isolation, both of the yellow cards for Chico Flores were worthy, so I have no complaints about the red card.

    • Iancransonsknees says:

      Squeaky bum time for Swansea if you lose Gaffer (given yesterday’s results)?

      What’s your run in like?

      • Christopher Harris says:

        Games remain vs Newcastle (a), Aston Villa (h), Southampton (h) and Sunderland (a), so remaining fixtures are relatively hopeful for Swansea.

        • Iancransonsknees says:

          Sunderland are gone, Newcastle are on the beach, Villa could be interesting. Southampton players may have one foot in Brazil.

          Can’t see Monk being the boss next season, he’s not got enough vowels in his surname. Mackay would be a decent shout if you weren’t trying to be too cosmopolitan again.

  3. Iancransonsknees says:

    What a game at Wembley. Blades fans desperate to get one over on Bruce.

  4. De Selby says:

    With ten men for 34 minutes Swansea out played Chelsea. Hope the Swans can grab at least a point. It’s not going to be easy.

  5. Iancransonsknees says:

    Hull should see this out now.

  6. Iancransonsknees says:

    Inevitable at Swansea. Ba’s deserved more game time this season.

  7. insert name here says:

    Mourinhos slags off Big Sams prehistoric football but his tactics arent much better. Theyve no imagination. Still though he wins wins wins. Id say this snoozefestll end 2-0 to Chelski but id love to see Swansea nick one.. doubt it

    • scott says:

      His is worse. Big Sam is working with what he has whereas Chelsea are have one of the most talented rosters in the league. In my opinion with that roster it is criminal to play the way he does, it’s digusting to watch and disgraceful to game. What is even more outrageous is that fans will defend this garbage, I can honestly say if my team played this way I would be ashamed to call myself a supporter.

  8. Ianor says:

    Gaffer. Do you have any idea why jose mourinho cancel’s his post match press conference today? To add that he also canceled his usuall pre match conference on friday.
