Chelsea Upset By Curbs!

Chelsea Upset By Curbs!

Chelsea believe Alan Curbishley's comments about Sir Alex Ferguson were 'unnecessary and inappropriate'.

The West Ham United manager praised Fergie in his column, stating that it would be an injustice if United were to lose their league crown. He concluded that most managers would like to see us over the line first and he would raise a glass for Fergie if it happened.

Chelsea expressed their displeasure over these comments which, I must say, are rather unfortunate but I don't think they have any right to complain. First, Curbishley's West Ham beat us three times in a row now so they really can't be accused of regularly rolling over.

Second, Chelsea play on a Monday afternoon at Newcastle, for no clear reason (at least it's not clear for me) apart from that they are guaranteed the most possible rest to recover from their Champions League semi-final. I would not mind it if we played our game on Sunday afternoon - but we are forced to take part in another morning kick-off on the Saturday. Is that fair? I don't think so.

Curbs since then insisted that West Ham won't roll over, claiming that their bonus scheme only kicks in if they finish in the top 10 - but in truth, they'd need to lose both their games with Spurs winning both to slide down to 11th. Anything can happen though.

Like you said those comments are unfortunate. And to be honest a disgrace. You cant go out and make comments like that right in the middle of the biggest title race in years.

Why would it be an injustice? If they are good enough to win the league and get the most points then they deserve it... what has justice got to do with it?

essientric sorry to disappoint you but my first united game was in 1979 when we had the mighty dave sexton as our manager.my Dad took me and him and my uncle split the cost of two season tickets between them so he could take his son one week and my dad could take me the next.We finished 9th that year and arsenal broke our hearts in the fa cup final.you call me a typical manc.What the **** would you know about mancs,you're from ****ing india for **** sake.now why don't run along with the rest of your 15 year old friends and stop spouting shi*e about things you know nothing about.I have never had any hatred for chelsea but it's little p*icks like you that's ****ing changing my mind.
