His biggest problem, though, was that his beard didn’t match his lips.
Get him some ABV, because he was clearly right. As well as shipping out the anti-Barthez, Petr Cech, Andre Villas-Boas was planning on getting rid of some real cack. Frank Lampard the immobile albatross, Michael Essien and his one leg, Proto-Arsenal player Salamon Kalou and the possible ghost Florent Malouda. While the way he went about it was a little hamfisted – dropping all those players and replacing them with nobody new foolish – the way the players reacted to this must be instructive as to their toxicity. If their reaction to a set back is to put their knife into it, then they can’t be surprised with the commemorative P45 celebrating all the work they’ve done at Chelsea.
The war in Iraq and the war in Afghanistan justifies most protests, but does it justify celebrating electing a man taking cash from hysterical anti-semites? Apparently so.
