Mourinho`s Anger!

Mourinho`s Anger!

It was interesting to see yesterday that those in charge of control of our game decided that Yaya Toure wouldn`t be charged following his apparent stamp on the Norwich player, Van Wolfswinkel.

Presumably the Football Association either thought that no crime had been committed or that it wasn`t of a serious enough nature to haul Yaya Toure before them.

The decision has angered Jose Mourinho who, it would seem, believes that Manchester City have been given a favourable deal and has ranted,

"If he`s not suspended, the message is clear - the players can do what they want if the referee doesn`t see. The message is normally that, if the FA defends football, he`d have to be suspended."

Harsh words but very probably true.

Elsewhere, Craig Bellamy has been charged for his indiscretion in Cardiff`s weekend fixture, suggesting its one law for those at the top and quite another for those at the bottom!

"stamp"? It was a petulant kick, have you seen the incident Merlin? He was lucky to get away it no doubt but so was Torres earlier in the season for what can only be described as violent conduct ( trying to impress Jose by replicating his eye gouging antics ) and Etoo's scything down Suarez off the ball. I know this man is adored by Chelsea fans, naturally given the success he's brought you but I have to ask, does he not embarrass you with some of the ***** he comes out with?

Toure definitely kicked the player in the back as he lay on the ground.He should have got some ban,but to leave him off altogether is wrong.For a player of his power and size,there's a bit of a coward in Yaya.In America when we played them,Loftus Cheek was giving him a bit of a runaround and as he burst away from him,heading towards goal,Yaya just kicked Ruben from behind which didn't go down too well in a friendly.I just thought to myself,he's one of these players that can give it but can't take it.Hopefully Matic can put him in his place,again,in the cup game.

Off topic.We have just been rated the third best club side in the world after performances in the last 12 months,behind Bayern and Real Madrid.We are the top Premiership side for the second year in a row as statistics prove.As Rafa would say,fact.

it's not the first time this animal is doing such things..... I remember he kicked Juan Mata when he ws on the ground, in a game at Stamford Bridge...... and he got away with that as well !!..... I was surprised that no one talked about it after the match, not even Juan himself !!

Bluedub, I love the way a "petulant kick" in the back is now an acceptable part of football. The Torres incident is completely different, he was booked for the incident and then wrongly sent-off, so it is completely understandable that the FA did not take that matter any farther. Toure has form for getting away with sneaky kicks and I think we all know why he's getting away with it.

Etoo against Liverpool? Double standards from the Mouthy one again. Can't you reasonable Chelsea fans tell this mouthy, arogant, would be United Manager to shut up?
11/02/2014 09:33:00
CobhamBlue, where did I say it was acceptable? I said he was lucky to get away with it. There's plenty of Chelsea players get away with similar on a weekly basis, Luis to name but one but hey it's ok for Chelsea players to do it isn't it? When the opposition do it they're animals.

Hi Merlin, how's the missus? Well I hope! I had to comment here because I just love Jose and his media wind ups. Does anyone remember young mr hazards girly clawing of jan vertonghen a face in our fixture earlier in the season? Didn't hear mr mou calling for a ban then? You wouldn't be top now had any of the officials had their eyes open for that ridiculous act of " violence" gotta love your manager.... Classy fella.

Have you not read what Cobham said Hotspur? Apparently what Torres did is perfectly acceptable.
11/02/2014 10:25:00
Blue dub. Unacceptable and a further ban should have been dished out. Love ya and leave ya guys, and Merlin, genuinely hope you had good news regarding your wife! The tests are the hardest thing to bear!

Bluedub, It's a pity Aguero won't be playing on Saturday, I'm sure Luiz would love to get him back for the two footed assault in last season FA Cup semi-final.
11/02/2014 12:06:00
Hahaha, there you go again Cobham, you never know Aguero might play some part, he's back in training. Aguero lashed out, very out of character for him but it was a silly thing to do. You see Cobham I can admit when City players do wrong, I can admit we get away with some things but it seems you just like Jose can't accept that you do any wrong and are quick to condemn others, a bit sad really.
11/02/2014 12:20:00
Bluedub, Hope he plays - maybe Luiz can put him out of the Barcelona match. You're going on about Torres but that incident was dealt with at the time so there is no comparison. As Jose says, City seem to be getting a lot of luck this season. Hopefully it has run out.
11/02/2014 12:26:00
Have you watched City much Cobham? The thing is the incidents that go against City aren't highlighted by the media, only the ones that go for us, naturally as we're a big news story. Chelsea have had their own luck, with the Ramires penalty, Torres non-ban and Etoo's off the ball scything of Suarez, I'm sure they've had things go against them too, it's all part of the game but to suggest one team is luckier than the rest in terms of decisions is just nonsense, the type of thing one would expect to hear from a child.

The moxt relevant thing to this discussion is what Uncle Merlin wrote last; "Elsewhere, Craig Bellamy has been charged for his indiscretion in Cardiff`s weekend fixture, suggesting its one law for those at the top and quite another for those at the bottom!" There is no doubt that there is a sickening double standard for how the FA metes out justice for the top teams compared to the bottom teams and i will be the first to admit that yes chelsea FC has also benefited from this. However in this morass of inconsistency with the interpretation of the rules for years ManU with SAF at the helm has been the greatest beneficiary of this. Now with his departure most independent persons will acknowlege that City have inherited that crown and one can speculate as to why. Left to me as i have been saying for years Pro footie is long overdue the addition of a video replay ref who in real time reviews all the video feeds and relays information to the central on the field ref to enable right decisions that favor no one to be made on contentious issues like PKs, offsides for goals, Sendings off, violent conduct etc. The fact that the FA, UEFA and FIFA have thus far steadfastly resisted this is a testament to the fact that they have something to gain by continuing to allow questionable decisions and "mistakes" to be made by the refs. It is hard not to surmise that they do this to continue to be able to influence the outcome of games to favor the "chosen" ones.

Are you wearing a tinfoil hat GabeU?

Bluedub, I saw then play a week past Monday. They were very lucky that night - should have lost 5-0.
