'If It's Football, It's Vital'


Has anyone out there been paying any attention to what Uncle Harry has been saying about the good ship Chelsea?

Harry, probably a week or so ago, remarked ahead of bringing his Queens Park Rangers side to Stamford Bridge,

"Only a real dope could fail at Chelsea."

Well this Saturday, Harry`s Queens Park Rangers clash swords with his former club, Tottenham Hotspur and a certain Andre Villas-Boas.

But it seems that Andre Villas-Boas has taken exception to Harry`s remarks, coming up with his own gem of a quote, replying,

"You have to be able to manage the club first."

A very pertinent statement that many feel may have a degree of truth about it!

He is right, given the fact that he couldn't manage the same team with lesser quality players, admitting that it is out of his depth or league is true honesty, it takes a top coach who knows what he is doing that will make this team function as a team, the boy-man just admitted that he bit off more than what he can chew when he strutted arrogantly to cobham.

Sorry this is outside this article,but I just read an article where rafa said torres had a stomach bug and that was the reason for his bad performance,isn't rafa trying to call himself A fool while trying to protect torres??how would he play a striker not fully fit with a stomach bug ahead of a fit and sharp striker?he is just trying to say he doesn't know what he is redknap said,maybe rafa is a dope!!!!

He also said Ba had an harmstring niggle,but sincerely does he expect us to believe all these,he is just trying to protect torres,so all the times torres has been playing bad he was ill??rafa should stop protecting fernando except he is giving me a reason to believe he is a failure wanting to happen at chelsea.....

AVB was 100% spot on. The outside beautiful of a mansion doesn't really say anything about the inside. You have to be able to access a club like that to experience it. additional quotes from the interview"CFC a different type of club. You just have to experience it and then you have to survive in it." So Harry doesn't have the right to say what he said.

I am surprised Ol arry said this. AVB will get his side extra motivated for this and if they wipe the floor with QPR which i fully expect arry is going to look really quite silly.
