Thank You, Mr. Dean And Co.!

Thank You, Mr. Dean And Co.!

Anyone else supported Arsenal? I hoped they might nick a result at Stamford Bridge, on the basis that they cannot be as appalling again as they were in their last two games.

Well, they were for 60 minutes. Chelsea outpassed, outthought and especially outfought them and got a deserved lead through a Djourou own goal. But then came the big moment of the linesman.

Van Persie was sent clear by Denilson and hammered the ball home with his right foot. Now it's all nice and cosy but he was about a mile offside and I was sort of waiting for someone to shout boo! April's Fool! - but was it was November I had to conclude they allowed it to stand.

Chelsea fell to pieces, lost and we are now only five points behind with a home game against perennial away strugglers Fulham in hand. Thank you, Mr. Dean and especially his honourable assistant! And we have to RESPECT this kind of officiating as well.

"outpassed, outthought and especially outfought them" my ass, they did. Even though they had most of the possession, they only had 2 shots on target for the entire match. Chelski didn't deserve to win, offside goal or no.

kidk - of course we've been. All out 17 premier league titles and 11 FA Cups should be taken away because referees LOVE us! I can't believe we havent won EVERY premier league title since its inception since referees love us so much!

Chelsea supporter here, just to say first that we were conned, but there's nothing we can do about it now and I expect it to even out with a decision going our way over the next few games. That's how it always is. Also, Fulham are improving on the road and are in decent form. They've drawn three of their last six away games, including Villa and the Scouse, and in the other three only lost by one goal. Hodgson has sorted their defence out this season and they could give you more of a test than you think. If they catch you on an off-day, they might just nick a draw out of it. That isn't to say I think they will (if they were at home, I'd be a little more confident), but if they do it'd be a massive boost to us with our currently patchy form!
