REVEALED! Why Liverpool love Chelsea crumbs

My kid brother, an inquisitive dude possibly Bluer than Mr John Terry, once asked me why Liverpool love to hate on Chelsea yet love Chelsea stars, starlets and rejects, when the Scousers cheaply snapped Englishman Daniel Sturridge off our table.


Envy was all I could mutter. And then Victor Moses happened...that, after Glen Johnson had jumped ship via Portsmouth.
And then the perennial link with Ryan Bertrand followed. Then Ashley Cole. Then Thorgan Hazard. And then Ashley Cole all over again, as some news sources are now insinuating, even when it's probable natives of Alaska are well aware Ashley is on his way to the land of the Gladiators as my editor, Merlin would say.


Well, what can I say other than their frantic quest to win the Barclays Premier League for the first time in their history?


Or does anyone have a better explanation, please? Above all, after the Moses fiasco, would you have anyone else from Stamford Bridge walk alone to Anfield?

It's odd the way that you attempt to lord it over other people piggy backing what someone else has done, ie Abramovich making enough money to buy his own football club. You are pitiful and I feel sorry for you.

Liverpool fans don't "love to hate" Chelsea, they just "hate" them. It isn't so much that Chelsea's success was bought for them, it's that they won't acknowledge it or they try to justify it with hollow arguments that other clubs have done the same thing. Except they haven't. No other club has been taken from the brink of bankruptcy to unlimited wealth overnight. The closest comparison is Man City who's supporters, in my experience, are much more humble about the situation. They have no problem admitting what they have become and are just enjoying the ride while it lasts.

Come on now... Money advances all things, sport included. It's a well know fact that "history" doesn't always favor the eventual dominators of a given field. OK, you've got your "history". Great. How's that gonna help you play football in the future? Those who do something first seldom end up doing it the best. I hope that more and more money gets pumped into the sport. If your team can't do the right business, so sad. Just keep rooting your team on for the love of history... I'll still follow my team if we're demoted and paupers tomorrow, history be damned. ;)

What most Liverpool fans hate about Chelsea is their constant attempts to stoke some imagined rivalry with us. It's like your stupid plastic flags and fake atmosphere. Totally manufactured. We already have two well established rivalries with Everton and Man Utd. We really couldn't give a crap about you.

They also have our assistant coach as their current coach. they tend to use what we have just to see whether they can reign like we do. Hatred out of frustration is what is killing them. they can never reach our level. they have been trying to reach our level for the past decade but they find it difficult to achieve, that has resulted to constant frustration which has now turn into hatred. The envy us in all aspect. From our Owner down to the supporters. The deject Abromovic because of the success he has chooped ever since he took over Chelsea but liverpool have been struggling and will continue to struggle and get over frustrated if they try to reach our level. We can't blame them.
DeepBlue1
they believe they can taste success as we have when they use anything that is related to, but they try very hard with all their energy and find no results. What we reject is their best. Our liability is their assets. They hate us for no tangible reason and always want to be like we are.
DeepBlue1
@Jerrymcm if you really don`t give a crap about CFC, what are you doing on our site ? Just for the record LIVERPOOL FC BOUGHT THEIR HISTORY WITH THE MONEY FROM THE MOORES FAMILY AND LITTLEWOODS POOLS. As for the plastic flags, I`d much prefer those, as opposed to the iron bars and wooden poles that the scoucers so happily used at Heysel, which they blame everyone else for but themselves.

Lallana for £25m is a waste of money. That and the sale of Saurez may ensure Liverpool are out the top 4 next season.

@ Tommy; everything from your camp is bull$hit. that is why. Have you thought of why Sturidge performs but your players who come to us flop. Well because our crap is your best and your best is our crap. what about that. We signed Torres just to prove that. . Keeping insulting yourself
DeepBlue1
LOL all these years they were behind us with no UCL experience not to mention any success other than a Carling cup..... and now when they have finished only 2 points ahead of us, they say they are the better team !!

Liverpool is our feeder club in england....from manager to players we feed them...and we also help them financially by giving 50 million charity for torres...and this season they have thanked us by gerrad bowing down in front of us...

come back again when he gets a hat trick against Ur pitiful defence, may would come soon enough and we will see the boys being seperated from the men as usual, smh a second string Chelsea side walloping pool in their backyard, head to head. Chelsea got six points over pool despite the fools playing once a week!!

tarkan mardinCOYS
as for the spud pecking his playing way in here, see u at 3 points lane :-), wanna be London favourite blowing a fortune on dead woods and sucklings
Desmondadonis
sorry to burst Ur bubble tarkan, heard u failed to make it to Europe this time too, what a shame, another club getting crumbs from Chelsea, gallas,poyet,parker, cudicini? now clamouring to get lukaku? if u love our ex players so much and a player in our club, the best option is to switch allegiance, we can arrange a good seat for u with a cup of warm stuff on those European nights u have been longing for!!
Desmondadonis
im not saying we are any great shakes at the minute,i am talking about how other fans perceive you guys
tarkan mardinCOYS
@McQuinnnChels, It`s amazing that all the scoucers keep accusing us of buying success, because without the investments that they continually received from the Moores family and Littlewwods they would probably continued to be a little northern club in the 2nd division. Best place for them as far as I`m concerned. Their fans live in the past and are so riddled with jealousy and hatred it is sad. Maybe we`ll get some Accrington Stanley supporters on this site soon, mouthing on about how things were years ago and what a great history they have got. The difference of course, is that Accrington Stanley wasn`t backed by a pools company.
Blueheart9
how should I care about what other fans bloody think? most think thru hate and jealousy coupled with intense envy, so I will take whattjey perceive with a pinch of salt and enjoy our success till it lasts.

Spurs: £100m and failed to get top 4.
foreign_viewer
Blueheart makes a great point ,when Liverpool dominated it was because of Littlewooods and the Moore family ,no other club could compete with their spending power .So all this "Chelsea bought their titles " rubbish is rank hypocrisy .Look at how much money City spent with Mark Hughes before they finally got it right ,it takes more than money to win titles .For a team so rooted in history it is funny they are so selective about it .
Michael Reid
I think it's wonderful that followers of other clubs, take the time and trouble to visit the Vital Chelsea site to vent their spleen. We should be flattered.
Since1963
Why are you guys responding to a spud? Did you hear about a boxer named Tyrone abusing Mayweather? Remember what Mayweather said? Nothing!!!!!!! Because Tyrone doesn't matter!!!!! Just like Rottenham fans......
KAKUfrank
Michael Reid - Blueheart does not make a great point at all. There is no comparison between the benefactors of other clubs and the one who took Chelsea from the brink of bankruptcy to unlimited wealth. The Chelsea model is an insult to the model of well-run, respectable and financially viable football clubs like Arsenal. Mourinho mocks Wenger as if his easy, boring successes are virtues and as if Wenger's decision not to follow a similar career path isn't a virtue. There's nothing special, honourable or respectable about a manager or a club that can only succeed with a competitive advantage.

@1 Sorry but we must agree to disagree on this point , as stated when Liverpool were winning titles they also had wealthier benefactors as such their rivals could not compete with them financially .When Abramovich bought Chelsea we were able to level the playing field ,also you may want to look at Arsenals second largest shareholder Usmanov ,he is wealthier than Roman and closer to the Kremlin before you hold up Arsenal as the model of a football club i think one FA Cup in 9 years and selling all your best players is not a model any club should want to emulate .
Michael Reid
Just one example was in the 1970`s Liverpool signed the most expensive teenager in world football. How did they do that then, through the 2 shillings entrance fee at Anfield at the time, or the programme sales that cost sixpence each ? No other team anywhere could compete with them financially thanks to the Moores family, who owned and ran Littlewoods Pools. What`s the difference ?
Blueheart9
Liverpool fans continue to live in past glory. Hazard had nt even been born d last time dey won epl. Pathetic
Demmyblues
I wl lyk to comment bt i thought i wl b wasting my tym n energy kwning dat i wl b talkin abt club whose captain hav zero epl title.wat a waste of enery.pathetic anuspool.
Amadi Anthony
Liverpool have never had anything to offer Chelsea so there should be no business between us. If it is true we have partial ownership of Lazar Markovic we should never allow him to join Liverflukes.
