Sir Alex Just Wants Dinner In Peace!

Sir Alex Just Wants Dinner In Peace!

Sir Alex Ferguson just wants to go out and have a dinner without the press spreading bull. Not too much to ask is it?!

The Manchester United manager has denied saying that Chelsea are 'hell-bent on ruining football' although if he had said it I would agree!

Fergie said:

'It's unfortunate that you can't go to a dinner nowadays without someone sneakily reporting everything you've said. That's unfortunate. That's the nature of life today, but I didn't say that. What I said is that Chelsea have supposedly signed 30 African players. I never made any reference to what effect that has on football. I've never at any time said that what Chelsea do is bad for the game.'

''If it's good for Chelsea, that's the important thing. But the question I posed is that, if it's correct that they've signed 30 African boys, how are they going to get them all a game? That was my point.'

The reporter Rodney Hartman has however stood by his claims in The Johannesburg Star.

He said 'He was asked what he thought about Chelsea and in the midst of his answer, said that they were 'hell-bent on ruining football'. He also said that there was no way his own club could match their money, that Chelsea were just buying up players and the chances of them all playing were pretty slim.'

Chelsea are hell bent on ruining football though, everyone knows it. They have bought the league two years in a row with the money from an ultra rich Russian billionaire. Where is the skill in buying all the top players? Clubs like Manchester United and Arsenal, and Liverpool in some ways, have built from little, bought and sold at the right time and slowly become big players in the Premiership. Now that DOES take skill.

interesting article. I totally agree with the sentiment. Clubs like Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool get where they are through hard work and skill rather than just putting their hands in their pockets to buy titles. Chelsea are hell bent on ruining football, it's so true. And, sadly, they're doing a very good job of it

Clubs like Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool all would do the same thing. What a bunch of rubbish from a bunch of also rans. Enjoy looking up at the bottom of Chelsea's boots this year you losers.

What's the difference between paying a squillion pounds for Rooney, and paying a squillion pounds for Ballack? None. If you've got it, you spend it. No difference between you and Chelsea.
