    A well deserved championship and they are truly worthy of it, the only team in the premiership worthy of taking it from us. Mourhinho may be a flawed genius, but a genius none the less. And it's great to see ManUre's stranglehold finally broken.

    I do hope that Liverpool send them out of Europe though (and get beaten in the final themselves) - hey, I have to have some loyalty to my team :D .

    Well said Michael. Shame to see us lose it without a real nailbiter, but that's how good Chelsea have been. Congrats to the Blues. :thumbsup:

    Got to congratulate Chelsea (they've won me a few quid on a bet!) but most of all I've been so impressed with Frank Lampard and John Terry from an England point of view :thumbsup:
    By the way, I'm drowning my sorrows tonight so might not be making a lot of sense !

    Don't be too down. Just hope they bounce straight up again. One of the best games I've seen in recent years was City v Gillingham in the Div 2 play-offs.

    First time in a long while Forest have been in Div3 (yes, Division 3! :mad: ). Early 50's last time? Hope Forest bounce straight back up as City, Sunderland, et al did. Bet Cloughies turning though........ :(

    Forest were the one team I admired back in the late '70's/early '80's, coming from relative obscurity to win the Europen Cup in back to back years and the Super Cup in between. How sad to see this great club languishing. I hope and pray they can pull themselves back up.

    It's got to be good for English football that 3 different teams have won the league in as many seasons. Now if only Villa can pull themselves together next season... :devil:

    I would agree if those three weren't the same ones who contest it year on year. Not withstanding the occasional visit from Liverpool and Newcastle, the top three has become as predictable as the rising of then sun. Hence the greater interest in the relegation battle! :confused:

    Who do you all think Abramovich will let go or try to bring in via transfer over the summer? Will he make significant changes even though Chelsea dominated the league this year?

    I think Chelsea need a good striker, someone like Michael Owen could do the trick for them.

    :laugh: You are joking right, John? :lease: Tell me you are! The rumour mill had it that Owen was reputed to be coming to our lot a while back. I was seriously worried I can tell you! :eek:

    I do think that Owen could be good at Chelsea, I really don't rate Drogba as a striker.

    Nor me. It's noticable that Chelsea are less effective without Robben against the better sides. They do need a quality out and out striker. But then, so do we!

    owen thrives on chances which chelsea create by the bucket load so he would probably score a lot of goals.

    well done to chelsea im sure they will buy there way to another title next year ;-D

    You kidding? Drogba was sensational against Barcelona. I think he is exceptional!

    Liverpool carved out plenty of chances for him and he didn't take nearly enough of them in recent years. The guy is all about speed. Once defenders suss that, he's not that hard to play. Hence his goals tally was never that great after his intial promise - and Liverpool fans, hand on heart, weren't all that sad to see him go.

    By contrast Henry is quick, but he's got much more to his game. Owen hasn't. Chelsea are welcome to him.

    Two 'class goals' conceded by two ageing centre halfs who admitted afterwards they were largely to blame. :rolleyes: Speed again, not subtlety. In that game as in so many others he looked out sorts until Arsenals old lags faded in the last five - ten.

    TBH the guys becoming a jinx! Every major game he scores the opening goal for England in we lose! Argentina, Brazil, Portugal............. :(

    So, if they don't go after Owen and aren't happy with Drogba, who do they go out and get? Who would they target?

    You may be right. However, I reserve judgement on that - if it happens. In Spain the speed factor (and surprise) are still serving him well. Will he still be scoring next year when Spains defenses (who learn faster than ours) have him worked out? I think not. The same if he comes back here. ;)

    michael is the man. countless times he has been knocked and he still gets back up and does the business !!!! i love our St Michael and would like to see him back. have him in for baros who frankly is pee'in me off now. at least with michael you WILL get 20 goals a yr. he hasnt been the same player since he did his hamstring that lonly day away at elland road :( he lost a few yards of pace but learnt to make up for it in other ways

    drogba is so over rated as well. a decent player but not that great and certainly not worth £24 million. i heard russians were lining up shevchenko :rolleyes: who says money cant buy sucess, it bloody well has done it so far

    It can't. They spent a fortune getting Wolves back into the big time and it got them nowhere. Blackburn managed one season. Chelsea failed to win anything despite spending a fortune under Ranieri. You need a good manager to become succesful, and, even more important, to keep being succesful. Mourinho has done one, now all he needs to do is the other. Any takers on him not managing that?

    ok when you take into context how much money chelski have then it can buy success. what you have to remember is that chelski can afford ANYONE they want. comparing to wolves isnt fair in what im talking about. yes they have spent money to get into prem but not on the levels i was associating with money bags down south. naturally you do need a good manager, but remember robben and cech arguable to the best signing were both ranieri's not moaninho's.

    im looking forward to tonight ive got butterflies as its nearing. will be leaving for it in about an hr or so :D anyone want my ticket for a grand....NOT A CHANCE :D think we will do it but win or lose i will be proud to be a red and we have gone alot further than people expected. a good clean out in the summer and hopefully rafa is the man for the job.
