I love your optimism, but I can't see us winning a game at Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, The Emirates & The Etihad
Not as big as Old Trafford or Emirates. Stamford Bridge holds 40,000 so they will always be at full capacity.
My only concern is that I can't see us going to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge, The Emirates or The Etihad and getting a clean sheet
I want to live in a world where Ramos and Costa fight each other at Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.

2014 in a nutshell. Old Trafford, three in a row, Wembley, Steve Bruce, Old Trafford again, Stamford Bridge, survival, Borini, four in a row, Steve Bruce again.
When you travel to Stamford Bridge you will find out why I want you out of Old Trafford, gaffer.
United continued their excellent recent run with a comfortable victory over Alan Pardew's Magpies who themselves are now in the middle of a poor run Manchester United continued their recent excellent run of form with a 3-1 win over inconsistent Newcastle at Old Trafford. Wayne Rooney was in top form, scoring twice, while Robin Van Persie continued his recent resurgence with another goal as Louis Van Gaal's men continued their top four assault. Always in charge from the moment they took the lead, the Red Devils now head to White Hart Lane on Sunday on an eight game unbeaten run. Here's five things we learned at Old Trafford: 1 Rooney loves (or should that be hates) Newcastle The Magpies must be sick of the sight of the England skipper. Since turning down a move to Tyneside a decade ago, Newcastle have become Rooney's favourite opponents to stick it to. His clinical double here made it 12 goals against the Toon Army, more than he's managed against any other club. He also turned provider with a delicious cli ...
For the best part of three months, the rest of the Premier League has been waiting for Chelsea to be confronted with some bad news. On the pitch, Jose Mourinho's men are top of the table, unbeaten and with no serious rival in sight. Off it, Thursday provided the most emphatic indication yet that the wait for their competitors could be a long one. The announcement of Chelsea's annual financial results has rarely been a proud moment at Stamford Bridge during the Roman Abramovich era. Many of the releases over the past 10 years have followed a familiar pattern: heavy losses accompanied by vague reassertions of a "long-term plan" and seemingly far-fetched promises that one of English football's most consistently decadent clubs would one day become "self-sufficient". But a profit of €23.2 million and record turnover of €402.9m for the year ending June 30 suggests that day may finally have arrived – a particularly timely revelation, given that the €62.2m loss absorbed in 2012-13 had sent the Premier Lea ...
A new month begins this weekend with a meeting of sides who share a London borough. Club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton supply the derby details… TALKING POINTS Welcome home to Chelsea’s brilliant travelling fans, publicly hailed for their vociferous support at Old Trafford and New Meadow by Didier Drogba as well as an emotional former Blue, Juan Mata. The undefeated league leaders and top scorers are seeking to extend a perfect start to the domestic campaign at Stamford Bridge. This is our first Barclays Premier League game on the Fulham Road in almost a month and, for once, Jose Mourinho and his side have the chance to extend the advantage over the Citizens to nine points before they tackle the Manchester derby on Sunday. City lost again at home to Newcastle in midweek and have recorded just two clean sheets in their last 13 matches. The team closest to the Blues’ coat-tails, Southampton, also face a test at Hull City, who have drawn with Arsenal and Liverpool in success ...
CONFRONTATION OF THE CHELSIAN BULLDOG:: Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has insisted it is too early to compare his class of 2014 with the team of serial trophy winners he assembled in his first spell as Stamford Bridge boss. Mourinho will take on his one- time mentor Louis Van Gaal when he takes his table topping side to face Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday and while Mourinho is confident he has another team that is ready to start winning major honours, he has brushed off suggestions that he revamped team can already be hailed as a match for the first team of champions he built at Chelsea a decade ago.

Man Utd full-back Luke Shaw to undo Chelsea ties when clubs meet on Sunday Luke Shaw will put aside any feelings he has for Chelsea on Sunday and concentrate instead on proving why Manchester United paid £28million for his services. Louis Van Gaal will come face to face with his friend Jose Mourinho on Sunday in the biggest test of his Old Trafford reign to date. With so much focus on Van Gaal's relationship with his former assistant, one sub-plot has flown under the radar in the build-up to the match - that of Shaw's relationship with Chelsea. Shaw spent much of his childhood on the terraces at Stamford Bridge, and he actually had a trial at the West London club as a youngster, but he was rejected after being deemed too short. The Blues had a chance to sign Shaw again this summer, but they balked at his wage demands, according to Mourinho, and United swooped to land the Londoner
Manchester United v CHELSEA: BIG MATCH STATS AND FACTS William Hill: 24th October 2014 Manchester United have won only six of their last 22 Barclays Premier League games against Chelsea.

Here, Sportsmail looks at the two squads and brings you our composite XI in a 4-2-3-1 formation… GOALKEEPER – Thibaut Courtois The Belgian is already widely considered the division’s best stopper, and this after just eight matches back at Stamford Bridge. David De Gea, of course, rivals Courtois for that mantle, but it is the Chelsea custodian who gets the nod. RIGHT BACK – Branislav Ivanovic The Serb is everything you want in a full back - he is powerful, pacey, combative and classy. It isn’t really a contes ...
Chelsea striker Didier Drogba has declared himself fit for the Blues’ upcoming league encounter against Manchester United this weekend. The West London club will visit Old Trafford on Sunday and Jose Mourinho is likely to be without the services of his first and second choice strikers, Diego Costa and Loic Remy. The Spain international is yet to feature for Chelsea after returning from international duty, while the former Queens Park Rangersman picked up an injury during their midweek Champions Leagueclash. Drogba scored in the midweek against Maribor and the 36-year-old, who returned to Stamford Bridge in the summer believes he is still needs more playing time. “It’s up to the manager to decide who is going to start on Sunday but, if you were a player, how would you feel if they said you can play at Old Trafford? You would be happy. I’m ready,” Drogba told Sky Sports. “I remember that game against United in 2010. Both goals were fantastic. It was a very good feeling to win there. We had the . ...

The Championship outfit will take on the Premier League leaders in the third round of the Capital One Cup at Stamford Bridge tonight at 9:45PM. The Trotters will head into the encounter as the underdogs and on a run of poor form, having slipped down to just a place above the relegation zone following a 1-0 away defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Manchester United have reignited their interest in Roma's Dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman with Juventus confident they will hold onto 27-year-old Chile midfielder Arturo Vidal. Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool are on alert after Paris St-Germain's contract talks with their 29-year-old Argentine winger Ezequiel Lavezzi broke down. Senegal striker Demba Ba who left Chelsea to join Besiktas in the summer, insists he only struggled at Stamford Bridge because manager Jose Mourinho picked players on reputation rather than performance.

New Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal is set to arrive at Old Trafford on Thursday fresh from securing the Netherlands' third place finish following a 3-0 victory against Brazil on Saturday night. The Dutchman continues to be linked with a host of players - most of whom he has coached at the World Cup this summer - so it will be interesting to see which of those, if any, end up as a Red Devil. Arsene Wenger is also on the lookout for further reinforcements, and not content with the marquee addition of Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez will attempt to strengthen his Arsenal ranks ahead of the new campaign. Chelsea have already captured Cesc Fabregas and Diego Costa, but Jose Mourinho is never very far away from a high-profile signing, so it would be foolish to rule out the possibility of any other stars turning up at Stamford Bridge ahead of 2014/15. Meanwhile, Liverpool are ready to splash the cash generated by Luis Suarez's recent sale to Barcelona and continue to be linked with a number of different ...
Old Trafford man. Once in a lifetime experience. I wanna go to Stamford Bridge someday
01-07-2014 Chelsea Football Club today bids farewell to Samuel Eto'o whose contract is now at an end. Eto'o spent one season at Stamford Bridge and true to his illustrious career as one of the great strikers in world football, provided some of the most memorable moments of 2013/14 with his goals, often important opening strikes including in big games against Arsenal and Tottenham, and against Manchester United when he became just the third Chelsea player to score a hat-track against the Old Trafford outfit. He signed on a one-year deal from Anzhi Makhachkala last August, making his debut at Everton and scoring his first Chelsea goal in a 4-1 win over Cardiff City, taking an Eden Hazard pass in his stride, jinking past Steven Caulker and firing low past David Marshall. It was another important contribution, giving his team a 2-1 lead, and Eto'o's formidable history in the Champions League continued with his first goals for us in that competition soon followed, a brace in a 3-0 win against Schalke, before h ...
Manchester United Prepare £40m Bid for Bayern Munich Maestro Arjen Robben By Emile Rossouw 19 Jun 2014 2.9K2 Manchester United could sign a cheque of £40 million away for Dutch star Arjen Robben, according to the Express. Robben has been setting the World Cup alight, scoring three goals in two games for the Netherlands, under the leadership of new United manager Louis Van Gaal. The Red Devils have been linked with several Dutch players since signing Van Gaal as their boss, including Daley Blind and Bruno Martins Indi. However, Robben would signal that Man United are ready to start fighting for the Premier League title once again. Sensational The Bayern Munich winger has been sensational for the Bundesliga side, as they won the league in successive seasons. If the 30-year-old was to move to England, it would not be his first time playing in the Premier League, having spent three seasons at Chelsea. His performances at the Stamford Bridge outfit sent him on his way to becoming one of the best wingers in t ...
Is he right or wrong? Former Manchester Unitedstriker Dion Dublin claims Chelsea’s title rivals don't need to worry about new striker Diego Costanext season. The Spain hitman, who agreed to join the Blues before the start of the World Cup, has flopped in Brazil, and cut a forlorn figure as the world champions crashed out of the tournament on Wednesday night. And former Red Devils forward Dublin, who picked up the Premier Leaguetitle during his time at Old Trafford, claims the Stamford Bridge side have bought a dud. “In the games I’ve watched, both domestically and internationally, I’ve not seen anything in Costa that makes me think, ‘you are unbelievable’,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfastshow. “I know he’s been injured, and has probably been rushed back, but I haven’t seen a spark, that sharpness or any sort of finishing quality. Even if you’re injured you hit the target.”

Free agents 1. Samuel Eto'o The Cameroon striker has left Chelsea after a solitary season in which he clashed with boss Jose Mourinho over the manager's comments regarding the veteran’s age. Having made it clear he’s 33, Eto’o will also point to his moderate return of nine Premier League goals in 21 appearances. While no longer a main striker, he certainly remains a threat. Arsenal have been linked with a surprising move, and you can already picture Eto'o having a point to prove if he faces the Blues next season 2.

Kurt Zouma: I turned down Man United Kurt Zouma has revealed he rejected an offer from Manchester United to join Chelsea and work with Jose Mourinho. The French defender sealed a 12 million-pound move to Stamford Bridge in January, although he was loaned back to his previous club, St Etienne, for the remainder of the season. But the 19-year-old claims he turned down the Red Devils -- along with Monaco and Inter Milan -- to sign for the Blues. United are likely to look for a new central defender this summer with both Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic leaving Old Trafford, and Zouma suggested he was wanted by David Moyes, but said Mourinho's influence was crucial in his eventual decision. "I really wanted to go to Chelsea," the 19-year-old told France Football. "Did I have other offers? Yes, there were Internazionale, Monaco and Manchester United. All those clubs called. "Monaco was the first to call, with the sport director. I thought about it, but with Mr Mourinho, that is a strong signal. "I know it is a r ...

Last week, Chelsea completed a youth double in the form of the FA Youth Cup and the U21 Premier League title. It was a proud moment for the Blues youth system, who have now reached the final of the former tournament five times in the last eight years. But in truth, the Chelsea development squad’s 2-1 victory against Manchester United in the U21 Play-Off final at Old Trafford was a rather hollow victory. For all the millions spent, time consumed and players prioritised in making the West Londoners one of England’s most formidable youth outfits, just three Chelsea academy products have become first team regulars at Stamford Bridge since the turn of the millennium – John Terry, Ryan Bertrand and Nemanja Matic. And although the Chelsea captain’s rise to the starting XI in the early 2000s was a simple enough path, Bertrand and Matic have not been so lucky. Struggling to adequately prove himself as the rightful successor to Ashley Cole, Bertrand has been sent out on loan to Aston Villa this season and . ...
*GREAT MOMENT* GGM 01: Arsenal go 49 league games unbeaten Played 49, Won 36, Drawn 13, Lost None. The Arsenal squad which set a new unbeaten league record between May 2003 and October 2004 will live long in the memory and forever in the history books. The Gunners' historic run actually began amid the ruins of a failed Premiership bid. Arsenal shook off the disappointment of a home defeat against Leeds which handed Manchester United the title to thrash Southampton 6-1 at Highbury on May 7, 2003. No one had an inkling about what would follow. Arsenal started the 2003/04 campaign in style with four straight wins but almost came unstuck at Old Trafford in game No 8 of their run. Ruud van Nistelrooy's late penalty cannoned off the crossbar and Arsenal escaped with a 0-0 draw. It was the closest shave of the entire 49-game sequence. For the most part Arsenal brushed aside all-comers home and away. There were memorable wins at Elland Road, Stamford Bridge and Anfield, plus some great goals along the way. Robert ...

Chelsea to reap rewards of youth spending after being crowned U21 Premier League champions Chelsea believe that manager Jose Mourinho will buy into their plan to bring through the current all- conquering crop of Under-21s and academy players into the first-team squad over the next few years, following the youngsters' latest triumph on Wednesday night. CFC were crowned champions at Old Trafford, beating their Manchester United counterparts 2-1 in the play-off final with a goal from Lewis Baker, a Luton-born 19-year-old who has been at the club since he was 10. This month they also won the Under-18 FA Youth Cup for the third time in five years. In spite of the millions Chelsea spent signing promising teenagers from all over the world for their academy, most notably under former director of football Frank Arnesen between 2005 and 2010, it has yielded no first-team regulars in recent years. This time the club are confident that Mourinho will bring young players through, having committed to that approach when ...

John Terry scored the game's only goal at Stamford Bridge and Joe Cole and Didier Drogba goals at Old Trafford ensured proved crucial in the titke race, with Chelsea going on to lift the FA Cup at Wembley, too. Those who were doubting wheather we ever defeated Manchester United home and away in a Premier League season, this are some of your answers.
2004/05 Chelsea 1-0 Man United: 15/08/04 Man United 1-3 Chelsea: 10/05/05 Jose Mourinho got his Chelsea reign off to a winning start thanks to Eidur Gudjohnsen's goal at Stamford Bridge and by the time United got Chelsea back to their place, the Blues were champions, with United having to suffer the humiliation of giving their opponents a guard of honour as they entered the Old Trafford pitch. Tiago, Gudjohnsen again and Joe Cole cancelled out Ruud van Nistelrooy's opener to rub salt into Fergie's wounds. Mourinho's men also lifted the League Cup that season, beating United on their way to the Millennium Stadium.
Just reminded myself that have got seven points from trips to the Etihad, Stamford Bridge and Old Trafford.

Why Reds fans wanted Chelsea to beat PSG this week Many Liverpool fans found themselves in the strange position this week of actually wanting Chelsea to beat Paris St Germain this week and reach the Champions League semi-finals. As Jose Mourinho bolted down the touchline at Stamford Bridge, rolling back the years to a time when he was a fresh-faced young scamp winding up Fergie at Old Trafford a decade ago, there were more than a few Liverpool fans who raised a smile. While there were few Liverpool fans openly supporting Chelsea on Tuesday night, it was hard not to appreciate that an aggregate win for Chelsea would, in actual fact, represent a positive result for Brendan Rodgers and his team's title charge. To some, it may seem like grasping at straws, but with just two points separating Jose's side and Liverpool with five games remaining such small margins can rely heavily on minute advantages. And, despite the smiles and celebrations, in the back of his mind, Mourinho must surely be thinking he may now ...

Official Declaration from Rahul Ananthanarayana Reddiar: " From today onwards, I will be a CHELSEA FAN, I don't hate Manchester United... BUT I am not going to be a fan of Manchester United any more.. A end to my 10 years of support for Manchester United... Really terrific feeling when moving from Old Trafford to Stamford Bridge.. I love that... Bleed Blue".
My disdain,inability to comprehend the how&why &unappreciation of David Moyes has always been clear,whilst I wish the man prosperity&good health,certainly not the Man U managers job. Which leads beautifully to an excerpt in the papers "Jose Mourinho was at it again on Tuesday,charging down the Stamford Bridge touchline in celebration of a goal which takes his team to the Champions League Semis . You have to wonder if the Manchester United power brokers were watching with regret at not luring a born winner like Jose instead of David" Food for Thought in the highest echelons of Old Trafford,hmm,hmm
Main article: History of Chelsea F.C. The first Chelsea team in September 1905 In 1904, Gus Mears acquired the Stamford Bridge athletics stadium with the aim of turning it into a football ground. An offer to lease it to nearby Fulham was turned down, so Mears opted to found his own club to use the stadium. As there was already a team named Fulham in the borough, the name of the adjacent borough of Chelsea was chosen for the new club; names like Kensington FC, Stamford Bridge FC and London FC were also considered.[13] Chelsea were founded on 10 March 1905 at The Rising Sun pub (now The Butcher's Hook),[1] opposite the present-day main entrance to the ground on Fulham Road, and were elected to the Football League shortly afterwards. The club won promotion to the First Division in their second season, and yo-yoed between the First and Second Divisions in their early years. They reached the 1915 FA Cup Final, where they lost to Sheffield United at Old Trafford, and finished 3rd in the First Division in 1920, ...

Is it because of that blip at Stamford Bridge that Arsenal fans have started their seasonal "Wenger must go" campaign. Excuse me. Wenger must go? Go where? Is it Invincible Wenger u guys are talking about? The man that built Emirates and since moving over there hasn't brought in a single trophy?

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher feels the Old Trafford pitch is too big for Juan Mata. Carragher has questioned whether Manchester United will see the best of the Spaniard. He told the Daily Mail: "Mata reminds me of Dimitar Berbatov. He was brilliant for Tottenham and he looked every inch a Manchester United player before he signed. "But White Hart Lane has a smaller pitch than Old Trafford and Berbatov didn’t have the speed to get around it. Similarly, Mata stood out at Stamford Bridge, which is also tight. "There is no doubt he has talent but does Mata have the legs for Old Trafford’s wide open spaces?"
Rodgers respected Man U at Old Trafford, he played our defensive/compact midfield approach, Wenger went to Stamford Bridge with poor tactics

David Moyes says his job is safe, but the sports writers are not so sure. Moyes' future could be decided tonight: David Moyes has claimed he has no fear of the axe dropping, but failure to progress in the Champions League tonight could prompt an early end for the Manchester United manager, according to a report in The Times. Moyes was bullish in his pre-match press conference, but the report claims his position at Old Trafford "could come under immediate scrutiny" if United are eliminated by Olympiacos. "There are growing doubts within the club about whether his tenure should continue into a second season," the report adds. "From boardroom to dressing room, there is a profound sense of awkwardness and a pained acknowledgement that, barring a dramatic transformation over the next few days, let alone weeks, the Moyes regime is beginning to look moribund." United's board have backed Moyes to the hilt until this point, but surely their confidence in the Scot is now be beginning to wane. Is this evening to be ...
Chelsea have been offered the chance to sign Bayern Munich star Mario Mandzukic, but it could spark a Premier League transfer tussle between them and two of their biggest rivals in Arsenal and Manchester United. Jose Mourinho is on the lookout for some more firepower in the centre-forward positions and has been told Mandzukic is ready to leave the Allianz Arena in the summer, according to The Sun. However, the report also claims both Arsene Wenger and David Moyes could be ready to step in and pitch the benefits of Emirates Stadium and Old Trafford respectively if it looks like an offer will be made out of Stamford Bridge. Though it is the Blues whom have been given the first green light by the Croatia international's camp. Arsenal and Chelsea are in similar situations in that both clubs have what many believe to be insufficient personnel in the centre-forward position. Mourinho has a number of options in the form of Fernanado Torres, Samuel Eto'o and Demba Ba, but none of them have been able to consistent ...
Manchester United has been thrashed by Liverpool 3 nil at Old Trafford. But am tempted to question the integrity of ref Mark Clattenburg most especially by his seemingly dubious decision to send off captain Nemanja Vidic. Of course the other 2 were very clear penaults. But he was blind to the point of never seeing Glen Johnson's handball in the 16 yard area, which was almost similar to Rafel's. I however forgive him because he sometimes back did the same against Chelsea when United also benefited from his misjudgements at Stamford Bridge.. Although being beaten by them, it will never take away the fact that LIVERPOOL LAST WON THE LEAGUE TITLE 20 YEARS AGO, maybe its now their turn because vemiti mukanwa vakati USHE MADZORO, lets find out.

tribal’s Most Expensive Premier League XI Goalkeeper David De Gea (Manchester United) De Gea arrived at Old Trafford for a British record fee for a goalkeeper of £17.8m in June 2011.

Defenders Glen Johnson (Liverpool) England right-back who was lured to Anfield from Portsmouth for a fee of £17m in June 2009.

The Spaniard had an instant impact at Stamford Bridge, but he has made a steady rather than stunning start to life at Old Trafford.
Scholes hails Mata Juan Mata’s impressive start to his Manchester United career has not gone unnoticed by a man who made the ‘creator-in-chief’ tag his own during 20 years as a Red. That man is, of course, Paul Scholes who was as delighted as anybody to see the diminutive forward make the move from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford, even going as far as to say that, in Mata, United have signed English football's top performer in recent times. “For the last couple of years Mata has probably been the best player in the league,” Scholes told MUTV and ManUtd.com in an exclusive interview. “We had to pay a lot of money for him and we were very lucky that he wasn’t in Chelsea’s plans, and only we can benefit from him now. “Hopefully he can have a strong end to the season and he can help us climb the table.” Although vocal in his praise for the Reds' latest acquisition, the typically bashful Mancunian was keen to dismiss those who have compared Mata with Scholes himself. He also spoke of how, i ...

THE TRUTH ABOUT MATA EXIT FROM CHELSEA- When Chelseasnatched Willian from the clutches of Tottenham Hotspurin the summer transfer window, pundits and fans alike believed it was a move to weaken Tottenham rather than strengthen Chelsea. The former Anzhi Makhachkala winger seemed destined for a move to White Hart Lane, but as Daniel Levy wrangled over every penny, Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich made a personal call to Anzhi’s owner Suleyman Kerimov to offer £32million up front and bring the big-haired Brazilian to Stamford Bridge. At the start of the season, it seemed like Chelsea had bought Willian for the purpose of scorning their rivals, as the 25-year-old was seemingly consigned to substitute appearances and the odd start in the League Cup, much like Juan Mata. Blossomed But since November, Willian has blossomed, integrating himself into the Chelsea starting line-up while Mata was left to kick his heels on the bench and seek pastures new, and eventually swapped Stamford Bridge for Old Trafford in J . ...
After 20 years of Premier League football fanatix thought it was about time to take a look back at the 20 greatest players to grace the English top tier during that time. 20. Matt Le Tissier Club: Southampton. Hardly built like an athlete, but what Le Tissier lacked physically the forward more than made up for in talent, scoring 102 league goals in 270 matches despite not playing as an out-and-out striker. 19. Rio Ferdinand Clubs: West Ham United, Leeds United, Manchester United. Was the British record transfer in 2001 when the Red Devils paid a whopping £30m for the centre-back, who in nearly 13 years at Old Trafford has won six league titles and the Champions League. 18.

Remains a hugely popular figure at Stamford Bridge despite leaving the club before the influx of success Roman Abramovich's millions bought and the Italian was a truly top-class star. 17.

Match Report If, at any point over the past two seasons, Juan Mata had been sold to Manchester United, it is safe to say there would have been uproar amongChelsea supporters. Imagine if Rafael Benítez, the former stop-gap manager, had presided over the deal. Mutiny would not have covered it.And yet, as Chelsea entered the post-Mata era, following Friday's confirmation of his £37.1m move to Old Trafford, with the most comprehensive of 1-0 FA Cup victories over Stoke City at Stamford Bridge, there was barely a flicker.There was one message of thanks to Mata scrawled on a small white sign held aloft by a supporter and that, in terms of acknowledgment of the sale, was that. There was no dissent, no protest and, if that reflected in part how Mata's fortunes have plummeted this season, it also reinforced where the fans' faith has come to lie.José Mourinho said afterwards that it was not him but the club who sanctioned the deal and, moreover, he intimated that they were powerless to resist once the scale of t ...
LONDON EVENING STANDARD Thibaut Courtois has revealed that his agent is in talks with Chelsea to see if he has permission to talk to other clubs about a move away from Stamford Bridge.

Italian pair Marco Borriello and Antonio Nocerino were due to arrive in London today as West Ham closed in on a double Serie A swoop. MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said Juan Mata's desire to join Manchester United was a key factor in the move, and confirmed United will break their club record transfer fee to sign him. Dante threatened to test Bayern Munich's resolve when he announced that a deal with Manchester United could be on the cards - but it seems he was just testing his stand-up routine.

In the six months since David Moyes's arrival at Old Trafford the 50-year-old has been through the full gamut of managerial emotions. The joy of winning the Community Shield in his first game; the satisfaction of keeping hold of Wayne Rooney after a turbulent summer; the pride in beating league leaders Arsenal at Old Trafford and thrashing Bayer Leverkusen; but also the frustration of missing out on a host of transfer targets; the embarrassment of a hiding at rivals Manchester City; the pain of home defeats to West Brom, Tottenham, Newcastle and Everton and the disappointment of cup defeats to Sunderland and Swansea. But today has the possibility to add more depth to Moyes' debut season. His side could face a heavy defeat against an in-form Chelsea keen to prove a point and strengthen their own title ambitions. On the other hand, against the odds, Moyes could lead his side to a huge win at Stamford Bridge which would leave the bookmakers, critics and pundits in a state of shock. Which will it be? We will ...
PRE-MATCH BRIEFING: CHELSEA V Manchester United - PART TWO Posted on: Sat 18 Jan 2014 With a day to go to Sunday's big match, club historian Rick Glanvill and club statistician Paul Dutton complete their look-ahead to the first home match of 2014… WE HAVE HISTORY This fixture has been a significant event in the football calendar ever since 1905/06 when the two promotion-chasing sides drew crowds of 35,000 to Clayton and, sensationally, 67,000 to Stamford Bridge. Both games were drawn, the one in Manchester only because the Pensioners' giant keeper Willie Foulke saved Bob Bonthron's penalty. Berated by his manager after the miss, Bonthron complained Foulke filled the goal to such an extent there was nowhere to aim his kick. Manchester United were the first side faced by new manger Jose Mourinho in his opening spell at Chelsea on 15 August 2004. The last time the Portuguese had faced Sir Alex Ferguson he was dancing a jog as his Porto team registered a crucial last-minute goal at Old Trafford en route to ...

David Moyes says he has received an apology from Jose Mourinho after claims the Chelsea manager had inside information Manchester United “are not happy”. Moyes revealed he was contacted by the Chelsea manager and their press office to clarify the remarks and is satisfied Mourinho was misinterpreted when he said he was privy to the mood at Old Trafford. Asked about the report, Moyes said: “I have seen it and I have had an apology from the Chelsea media department and from Jose. I think it was poor journalism actually.” Moyes must try to inflict Mourinho’s first Premier League defeat at Stamford Bridge without Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie, the latter being expected back in full training on Monday. Moyes, meanwhile, has been fined £8,000 and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after admitting a misconduct charge arising from comments about referee Andre Marriner and his assistants following the recent 2-1 Capital One Cup defeat at Sunderland. admin - nEshun

CHELSEA DENY WESTBROM A FAMOUS WIN WITH A CONTENTOUS DECISION. Escapes like this merely fuel the sense that José Mourinho is simply invincible when it comes to Premier League matches in this arena. Chelsea were apparently beaten here, their game-plan long since desperate and panic-strewn, when Ramires bustled into the area one last time and tumbled under vague contact from Steven Reid. The clock read 93 minutes and 41 seconds when Andre Marriner, after a pause for effect, pointed belatedly to the spot. While visiting players struggled to contain their sense of outrage, Eden Hazard slid in the resultant penalty to extend the hosts' unbeaten run here to 66 league matches under the Portuguese. Tempers boiled over again in the immediate aftermath, Jonas Olsson and Chris Brunt incensed and taking their frustrations out on the officials, and after the final whistle seconds later. The visitors knew they should have added success at Stamford Bridge to their victory at Old Trafford earlier this season, but it was ...

Sir Alex Ferguson has revealed in his new autobiography that he talked himself out of signing Petr Cech 12 years ago when he was still playing for French club Rennes, the Daily Star reports. The former United boss had watched Cech as a fresh faced 19-year-old and though he was impressed by what he saw, he decided that the Czech international was just too young. But now at 31 years of age Cech has gone on to see himself become one of the world’s best goalkeepers after Claudio Ranieri decided to take a chance on him two years later by bringing him to Chelsea. Arriving at Stamford Bridge for £7m, he quickly went on to displace Carlo Cudicini in the Chelsea goal during his first season in England. And since the first season he has gone on to pick up three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and a Champions League along the way. Ferguson also revealed that he missed out on signing the likes of Paolo Di Canio, Steven Gerrard, Fernando Torres, Paul Gascoigne and Ronaldinho during his 27 years at Old Trafford. ...
Chelsea career On moving to Stamford Bridge, Fernando Torres took over the vacant number nine jersey, but took 14 games before he found the net, a joyously received effort on a sodden Stamford Bridge pitch against West Ham. It remained his only goal for the Blues that season but with a rare summer of recuperation following, hopes were high that 2011/12 would see the Fernando Torres that tormented Chelsea so much when he was wearing red. His start had been encouraging, with an opening day display at Stoke which lacked only a goal. That eventually came at Old Trafford in a 3-1 defeat against Manchester United, but his afternoon will be remembered not for the instinctive flick over David De Gea's head but the missed open goal that followed in the closing stages. The Spaniard bounced back quickly to open the scoring against Swansea with a smart touch and finish though, but he was then sent off, forcing him to miss three domestic games. In Europe though, he then netted twice in the 5-0 Champions League victory ...

Despite the exit of Mikel Obi tilting the momentum towards Chelsea, the game eventually ended in a 1-1 stalemate. For the first time since his switch to Stamford Bridge, Samuel Eto’o joined Michael Essien on the Chelsea bench. Both of them were unused substitutes. In what is now becoming predictable, the Senegalese Demba Ba, was not even on the bench as he continues to be on the margins, and an outcast in Jose Mourinho’s team. When you consider that Sunderland is a sinking ship, only until then, do you realize that Stephane Sessegnon’s fall-out with Paulo Di Canio might have been a blessing in disguise to him. There have been shocks already this season; however, even the most ardent West Bromwich Albion fan couldn’t have expected a victory at the fortress, Theatre of Dreams, Old Trafford. Let me break it down for the uninitiated, the Baggies were without a win over United since 1984 and none at Old Trafford since December 1978.

Predicted Chelsea Starting Line-Up For Fulham Clash Chelsea welcome local neighbours Fulham to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening looking to get back on track after a difficult few weeks. The Blues season has taken an unexpected turn for the worse with the West Londoners win-less in their previous four outings. Following a bore 0-0 draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford, Jose Mourinho’s men lost to Bayern Munich in a penalty shoot-out in the final of the European Super Cup. Defeat to Everton on Saturday was followed by a shock 2-1 home defeat to FC Basel in the Champions League on Wednesday so Mourinho is expected to rotate his squad once again this weekend. Up front is a particular area of concern right now with none of the clubs three senior strikers finding the target so far this season. New signing Samuel Eto’o was selected in midweek but Fernando Torres could find himself thrust back into the first team after being left out of the squad entirely against Basel. Willian also failed to impress ...
In the dark days of summer discontent as Wayne Rooney once again glanced towards Old Trafford's exit, David Moyes made his opening pitch as Manchester United manager. Moyes was sitting in the famous stadium's Europa Suite fending off questions about Rooney's future with the same dexterity and determination as he was fighting off offers from Chelsea for a player enduring his latest bout of dissatisfaction with life at United. The Scot met every question and every bid from Chelsea with the same answer. "Not for sale" - especially not to Jose Mourinho and Chelsea And to emphasise his point, Moyes revealed he had made it clear to Rooney that the greatest opportunity to leave a legacy that would last a lifetime lay at Old Trafford not Stamford Bridge. It was the opportunity to become a Manchester United legend. The rationale behind United's hard-line stance on Rooney was demonstrated in 83 minutes at Old Trafford on Tuesday as Moyes enjoyed a successful entry into the Champions League group stage with a fine 4 ...

April 2003: Falling in love with football The headlines were shared by David Beckham and the Brazilian Ronaldo, who scored five goals between them, but Real Madrid’s extraordinary Champions League victory over Manchester United held a more far-reaching significance. Among the spectators at Old Trafford that night was an unknown billionaire Russian who was sufficiently captivated to decide that a Football Club should be his next purchase. Abramovich quickly settled on Chelsea as his desired club. As well as the London location, the share structure meant Chelsea was relatively quickly attainable. A meeting was swiftly arranged at Stamford Bridge between Abramovich and then chief executive Trevor Birch. “I wasn’t totally convinced he was the real thing,” admitted Birch. Abramovich made no attempt to haggle over money and accepted the asking price. The meeting lasted less than 20 minutes. Birch contacted Ken Bates, then Chelsea owner, and a meeting was arranged later that day at the Dorchester Hotel. ...

Manchester United and Arsenal are streets ahead of big-four rivals Manchester City and Chelsea when it comes to player development and polishing rough diamonds. According to a new study by the Swiss-based CIES Football Observatory, seen exclusively by Sunday Mirror Sport, the value of the squads assembled at the Emirates and Old Trafford far outstrips the prices that both clubs paid for them. The opposite is true at Chelsea and Manchester City. The Annual Football Observatory report suggests that Arsenal’s squad is currently worth £119m more than Arsene Wenger paid for it. The squad David Moyes’ inherits at Manchester United, meanwhile, is worth £78m more than the transfer fees paid by his predecessor Sir Alex Ferguson. Across the city at The Etihad, the Football Observatory have calculated that, in the current market, there’s a £51m shortfall between the transfer fees paid and those likely to be recouped by Manchester City’s billionaire owners. It’s a similar story at Stamford Bridge, with t ...
Vitesse Arnhem's Marco Van Ginkel set for Stamford Bridge despite interest from Man United. Chelsea are in advanced negotiations to sign Dutch wonderkid Marco Van Ginkel. The Vitesse Arnhemm midfielder has also attracted interest from Manchester United, with new Old Trafford boss David Moyes believed to have dispatched chief scout Jim Lawlor to watch the 20-year-old in action for the Netherlands at the under-21 European Championships. But reports in Holland, covered by Saturday's Daily Express, claim that Chelsea are close tying up a deal for the youngster, after agreeing a fee in the region of £7.2m for Van Ginkel's services. Van Ginkel scored 8 goals in 33 appearances for Arnhem last season and mainly operates in a central midfield role.
United boss faces Jose's Chelsea (Submitted by Sports Journalist) David Moyes' first home game as the new Manchester United manager will be against Jose Mourinho's Chelsea. Barclays Premier League champions United face a nightmare start to the 2013-14 season with trips to bitter rivals Liverpool and Manchester City in the opening five games. United begin at League Cup winners Swansea on August 17, before the returning Mourinho's Chelsea visit Old Trafford the following weekend. A match at Liverpool follows for United on August 31 before a visit to City in the fifth game of the season on September 21. Mourinho's men kick off the campaign with a match against newly-promoted Hull at Stamford Bridge, while there are also home games for fellow Champions League hopefuls Manchester City and Arsenal.

The Premier League fixtures for the 2013/14 season have been revealed and Jose Mourinho’s second tenure at Chelsea will begin at Stamford Bridge against Hull City. Blues fans will hope that this proves to be a good omen as they famously completed a league and FA Cup double under Carlo Ancelotti the last time they played the Tigers on the opening day. Perhaps more interesting is Chelsea’s second fixture, which is currently scheduled for Saturday August 24th - but will not doubt be moved for TV coverage against Manchester United. It will be David Moyes’ first league game at Old Trafford as the home manager, and a good result here could set a precedent for Mourinho’s side – despite it being so early in the campaign. Towards the end of September the Chelsea boss will travel to White Hart Lane, where one of Mourinho’s former charges Andre Villas-Boas is currently the Spurs manager. Matches between the two are always looked forward to as neither side are particularly fond of each other, but the whol ...

Mourinho makes Schurrle his first signing as German seals £18m move to Chelsea Jose Mourinho has landed his first signing since returning to Chelsea with Germany forward Andre Schurrle joining from Bayer Leverkusen for £18million. Schurrle, 22, has been on the radar at Stamford Bridge for over a year and is set to sign a long-term contract after the club confirmed a fee had been agreed on Thursday. Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has not been included as part of the deal, despite reports suggesting the Belgian would head in the opposite direction. Mourinho was asked on Monday what his plans were for De Bruyne and his young compatriot Romelu Lukaku and he gave a strong hint that the pair are part of his vision for the future.

THE ear-splitting racket coming from Stamford Bridge this week had a familiar sound. It was Jose Mourinho blowing his own trumpet. How he was going to build a new team at Chelsea starting from “ground zero”. For a moment you imagined he had been left with a bunch of amateurs who couldn’t progress without his magic touch. Then you remembered. This is Jose and everything has to be about him. Meanwhile, Manchester City are getting on with it quietly. Without fanfare. And with a message of intent that must be a worry for the Premier League in general and David Moyes in particular. For while City are already making their moves in the transfer market, Old Trafford fans are still waiting for Moyes to strengthen a United side not as good as last season’s 20th title might suggest. That United could win the Premier League by 11 points stunned the powers-that-be at the Etihad. Even as the season progressed they were identifying the three areas where City had let themselves down. They saw a lack of width in a ...
A Goliath Called David Posted on June 3, 2013 by Finney How we could have done with someone like Dave Webb last season ! The following article is from a 1970’s football magazine: ‘David Webb is the sort of player every manager likes to have on his side. The “over-my-dead-body” type. The non-stop battler. And, so valuably, a defender with the knack of scoring vital goals. Like his unexpected score against Cologne last season to help QPR progress in the UEFA Cup. Or his counter against Arsenal that put QPR in the League Cup semi-final. But there was none to better the one he got for Chelsea against Leeds United in 1970 to take the FA Cup to Stamford Bridge for the first time. In the first match, at Wembley, Webb took surely the biggest ‘roasting’ any player has ever had there. In the replay at Old Trafford he came roaring back with an outstanding game. And, in story-book style, scored the winning goal. Early on in his career Webb was nicknamed ‘Desperate Dan’ – the man for all occasions. H ...
Abramovich wanted Ferguson as Chelsea boss before Mourinho Sir Alex Ferguson may finally have brought down the curtain on his Old Trafford reign after nearly 27 years, but it could have ended a decade ago, following an apparent attempt by Roman Abramovich to entice him to Stamford Bridge. Abramovich had just caused a sensation by buying control of Chelsea from Ken Bates, in June, 2003, when he began drawing up ambitious plans to take his new club to the summit of English football. -JC

There is familiarity between this season's Chelsea and Manchester United sides as they prepare to meet for the fifth team, and Rafael Benitez sees an advantage in that given the balance of the most recent contests. In the league match at Stamford Bridge back in October Chelsea were narrowly defeated, followed closely by a Capital One Cup encounter in which we came out on top. Those games were with Roberto Di Matteo in charge so it is the FA Cup quarter-final tie, eventually decided by Demba Ba 's replay winner after Chelsea had come back from 2-0 down to draw at Old Trafford, that Benitez discussed ahead of our league return to Manchester. On Friday he highlighted the team's current confidence as a major asset and he hopes that plays a part today. 'We did really well and the reaction of the team [in the second half at Old Trafford] was very good, and our game at Stamford Bridge was fantastic so I think the team has confidence that we can beat them,' said Benitez. 'Man United deserved to win the league *** ...

FA CUP REPLAY: Chelsea full back Cesar Azpilicueta sure of success over Sir Alex Ferguson’s side. The holders appeared likely to exit the FA Cup after going 2-0 down 11 minutes into the quarter-final at Old Trafford and many wondered if Rafael Benitez’s spell in interim charge would come to a premature end as a result of a heavy defeat to an old rival. But Chelsea responded with second-half goals from substitute Eden Hazard and Ramires to force a replay, while Mikel too was influential after coming off the bench. He said. “We were controlling this game. We play at Stamford Bridge with our supporters. We have this feeling that we can win.” Chelsea’s end-of-season bid was strengthened elsewhere yesterday when Tottenham lost at Liverpool. It means the fourth-placed Blues, who have a game in-hand over Spurs, are two points behind their London rivals as they seek Champions League football next term.
Former Chelsea and Manchester United midfielder Ray Wilkins does not envisage Jose Mourinho leaving Real Madrid for Stamford Bridge this summer, but expects the Portuguese to succeed Ferguson at Old Trafford.

Manchester United and Chelsea will replay their FA Cup quarter-final after the Reds squandered a two-goal lead in the sides' meeting at Old Trafford. Goals from Javier Hernandez and Wayne Rooney had a dominant home side two ahead inside 11 minutes, but a second half fightback from the visitors spawned goals from Eden Hazard and Ramires to ensure the sides must meet again at Stamford Bridge. Sir Alex Ferguson's side looked to have buried the tie by the interval, but were punished for a lacklustre second half display as Chelsea deservedly fought their way back into the tie and would have won, but for a stunning last-minute save from David De Gea to deny Juan Mata. Sir Alex Ferguson made just four changes to the side which had exited the Champions League against Real Madrid, with Wayne Rooney, Chicharito, Shinji Kagawa and Jonny Evans returning to the Reds' starting XI. While the pre-match atmosphere at Old Trafford failed to replicate the unyielding din which had soundtracked last Tuesday's tie, it wasn't l ...
Quarter-final classics With Chelsea next on the agenda for United in the FA Cup, we take a look at Sir Alex's record in the last eight of the competition. Sunday's clash will be the 13th at this stage for the boss since he replaced Ron Atkinson at the Old Trafford helm. Here's our shortlist of the five top last-eight ties... which one was your favourite? 1994: Charlton (H) 3-1 This home clash en route to a first-ever Double was far from straightforward following Peter Schmeichel's sending off. The Dane was dismissed for handling outside his box at the end of the first half but Les Sealey came on and the 10 men still triumphed with Mark Hughes, at the second attempt, and an Andrei Kanchelskis double seeing off the Addicks, who replied through Carl Leaburn. 1999: Chelsea (A) 2-0 After a goalless draw at Old Trafford, many predict the wheels would come off the Treble bid at Stamford Bridge. However, Dwight Yorke volleyed past Ed Goey early on and then added a superb second close to the hour-mark. Peter Schme ...
Howard Webb has been selected as the referee for Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final between Manchester United and Chelsea at Old Trafford. Webb, who was the official in charge of the last World Cup Final, will be in the middle when the competition's most frequent winners take on the current holders. The Yorkshire official was last in charge of the fixture when Chelsea let a three-goal lead slip to register a 3-3 draw against United at Stamford Bridge in a Premier League clash in February 2012. The last time Webb refereed an FA Cup tie at Old Trafford, it ended in controversy after United's win over Liverpool in January 2011. whats ur take., change him or leave him?
"We were together in my office. He asked me, ‘What did you say to the press, young man?’ We laughed, we joked, we spoke, we drank and when we go to Old Trafford for the second leg on Jan 26, it is my birthday. I will bring a beautiful bottle of Portuguese wine for after the game. The wine we drank at Stamford Bridge was very bad. And he was complaining about it. He is a wonderful, great manager. I have a lot of respect for the big man. I call him ‘boss’ because he’s our [the other managers'] boss. He’s the top man, a really nice person and he deserves to be the boss. Maybe when I am 60 the kids will call me the same.” On Sir Alex Ferguson mourinho simbi kk

Almost half of skysports.com readers believe Jose Mourinho will be managing Chelsea again next season. The Real Madrid boss announced his intent to return to English football in the future during an interview with Sky Sports earlier this week. Mourinho's position at the Bernabeu has become tentative, with Madrid third in the Primera Liga, 18 points adrift of leaders Barcelona. Meanwhile, Rafael Benitez is struggling to win over the Blues faithful in his inconsistent interim reign at Stamford Bridge, prompting calls for the return of 'The Special One' this summer. And in a Skysports.com readers' poll, 44 per cent of the votes identified Chelsea as the club most likely to be managed by Mourinho next season, with his current employers receiving just 2 per cent. Surprisingly, Manchester United received 22 per cent of the votes, but with Sir Alex Ferguson giving no indication that he intends to stand down from his job, Mourinho to be at Old Trafford next season is unlikely. Manchester City took in 16 per cent ...

Five most shocking Premier League January transfer rumours Frank Lampard – Chelsea to Arsenal The Gunners have been criticised for lacking experience and grit in the midfield, while Lampard is rumoured to be on his way out of Stamford Bridge after not being offered a New Deal. The England international was then linked with the trip across London. Luis Suarez – Liverpool to Manchester City Where would Brendan Rodgers be without Luis Suarez? Possibly not manager of Liverpool as he has been crucial to their season being as good as mediocre so far. The Anfield boss would probably not have been best please, then, when the Premier League champions were reported to be ready to buy him. Nani – Manchester United to Arsenal The Portuguese winger has shown so much promise at Old Trafford, but he appears to have fallen out of favour with Sir Alex Ferguson in recent times, with playing time becoming a little harder to come by. This sparked talk of a big-money Janaury move to the Gunners. Sandro - Tottenham to Ma ...
The departure from Old Trafford of a certain Luis Carlos Almeida Da Cunha seemed as assured as Queen's Park Rangers losing at Stamford Bridge up until recently. Sir Alex Ferguson has squashed rumours that Nani is on his way out of United- at least of the foreseeable future and it's now just a question of whether the winger can have any form of impact this season. So far in this campaign Nani has been poor to say the least, I'm a big fan of his but even I've struggled to defend him at times as his performances have gone from the erratic, to the downright disinterested. One goal and an assist in seven league games is hardly cause for a transfer out of the club, but it's the standard of Nani's displays which have caused most fans to turn against him. You can almost feel the anger towards Nani at games now, before he's even touched the ball, its almost as if the crowd are pre-empting his mistakes. Most Reds on the social networking sites seem resigned to the fact that Nani's not cut out for United and we need ...

Leeds United and Chelsea have been the fiercest of rivals since David Webb headed the Londoners to victory in the 1970 FA Cup Final replay at Old Trafford. Despite the victory for the Blues, the two clubs were soon heading in opposite directions with Leeds surging to glory under Don Revie and Chelsea falling from grace out of the old First Division. Midfielder Frank Lampard has been giving history lessons to the continental contingent at Stamford Bridge so they understand the passions that will be running high on the terraces. And if anything epitomises the north/south divide it is a battle between Neil Warnock's no-nonsense Yorkshire side assembled on the relative cheap and Roman Abramovich's flamboyant King's Road multi-million pound dream team.

Some of these were incredible!1)→ David Beckham Real Madrid to LA Galaxy (FT)‐The England midfielder left Manchester United after falling out with manager Sir Alex Ferguson in 03 & helped Real Madrid to the Spanish title during his final year at the club in 2007.2)→ Didier Drogba Chelsea to Shanghai Shenhua (FT)‐The Ivorian international moved to Stamford Bridge in 2004, and enjoyed eight years of success at Chelsea before running his contract down earlier this summer.3)→ Cristiano Ronaldo Manchester United to Real Madrid (£80m)‐The Portuguese winger completed the biggest move in football history in 2009, leaving the Red Devils after six years of unprecedented success at Old Trafford.4)→ Andy Carroll Newcastle United to Liverpool (£35m)‐Alan Shearer told GiveMeFootball he’d be ‘amazed’ if Andy Carroll left Newcastle back in January 2011, after a season-and-a-ha-lf of top quality football for the Toon in the Championship and then Premier League.5)→ Luis . ...
NEWS AS IT BREAKS SPORT FOOTBALL Pep Guardiola is ready to snub Chelsea because he wants to boss Manchester United. Blues owner Roman Abramovich is hoping the former Barcelona chief will take over at Stamford Bridge next summer. But Guardiola, who is on a year’s sabbatical in New York, fancies moving in at Old Trafford when Alex Ferguson retires. That could be at the end of this season. If not, Guardiola would be prepared to hold out for another year. Fergie and Guardiola are close friends and have met privately in New York. A source close to Guardiola said: “The whole history of Manchester United, his relationship with Sir Alex and the way the club is run appeals to Pep. “Right now I’d be astonished if he went to Chelsea. He really wants to wait for the United job even if it means extending his time out of the game.” Guardiola wants to be able to concentrate on all aspects of the Football Club without interference from above.

• Chelsea want starlet rejected by Manchester United -Ljajic is beginning to fulfil some of his promise RSI © Chelsea are considering a bid for Fiorentina midfielder Adem Ljajic, who was rejected by Manchester United in a last minute u-turn and involved in a punch up with his former manager. Realdream's finest claims Stamford Bridge scouts had been watching the 21-year-old’s team-mate, Stevan Jovetic, but were soon impressed by Ljajic’s talents, prompting Roman Abramovich to consider bankrolling a move. Ljajic was supposed to sign for Manchester United in 2009 from Partizan Belgrade in a double transfer with Zoran Tosic – the deal was even announced by the club, with Tosic joining immediately and Ljajic moving a year later. However, United eventually pulled out of the reported £10million deal for the then 18-year-old, with the Old Trafford club stating work permit issues as the reason and Partizan claiming a financial crisis at the Premier League club. Ljajic then joined Fiorentina and became .. ...

Man United robbed Chelsea at Stamford Bridge While all the focus might have been on the signing of Robin Van Persie at Old Trafford during the summer, there was one piece of transfer business that slipped quietly under the radar as once again Sir Alex Ferguson exhibited all his wiles by shipping out Howard Webb and bringing in Mark Clattenburg as a brilliant replacement.
By Mark OgdenLast Updated: 3:35PM GMT 28/10/2012 Sir Alex Ferguson has challenged Manchester United to end their 10-year search for a Premier League victory at Stamford Bridge to deliver a signal of intent in what he believes has already become a three-horse race for the title. United last claimed all three points at Chelsea with a 3-0 win in April 2002. Roman Abramovich might have seen Ferguson’s team deny him a Champions League title in Moscow in 2008, but when it comes to league business, Chelsea’s Russian owner has still to see United spoil an afternoon at Stamford Bridge. United’s rivals have come and gone during Ferguson’s 26-year reign as manager, but none have been a source of irritation to the Scot quite like Chelsea. Even when the current European champions were little more than First Division also-rans at the outset of Ferguson’s Old Trafford career, Chelsea’s ability to prove a thorn in United’s side was already well established. “They have had a terrific record against us sinc ...
The Dossier: Manchester United's top-heavy squad presents problems ahead of Chelsea clash Despite the potency of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and the rest of Sir Alex Ferguson's side, the Old Trafford boss faces a tactical dilemma ahead of the Stamford Bridge fixture. After Javier Hernandez, seemingly quicker and more muscular than last season, had scored twice to help rescue the game against Braga on Tuesday, Sir Alex Ferguson admitted his predicament. “He's got me thinking,” he said. “He, Van Persie, Rooney and Welbeck; I don't know what to do with them to be honest.” And that’s without mentioning Shinji Kagawa and Tom Cleverley, the two other candidates for an attacking midfield berth. Although Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck can play wide and Cleverley and Kagawa, who is unavailable for the Chelsea trip after it was confirmed he will miss three to four weeks with a knee injury, can play deeper. United essentially have six players for two positions. Which hammers home the question asked earl ...
Now i can breath! You remember what Newcastle United did to us last season? Only Demba Ba can answer that. Nevertheless, the three points are vital and we move to second place.

Man Utd defender Ferdinand will NOT shake hands with Chelsea pair Terry, Cole Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand will NOT shake the hands of Chelsea pair John Terry and Ashley Cole when they face-off next month. The Sunday Mirror says Anton Ferdinand refused to shake hand with Terry and Cole before Chelsea’s game against QPR last weekend and brother Rio is likely to give the pair the cold shoulder when United visit Stamford Bridge on October 28. The fact former Old Trafford midfielder Park Ji-Sung snubbed Terry at Loftus Road also raises the prospect that other United players could decide to show their support for the Ferdinands. If found guilty by the FA, Terry may be suspended for Chelsea’s game against United and would face a fine, although he could appeal. Terry was cleared of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand by Westminster Magistrates’ Court in July, when Cole appeared as a witness. Rio Ferdinand was fined £45,000 by the FA after being charged with improper conduct for seemingly endorsin ...

Now, at last, the truth - as opposed to "The Truth" - about Hillsborough is out there. There can be no more nudge-nudge, no more attempts to alleviate the blame being pinned on those who were responsible for one of the worst cover-ups ever perpetrated on the people of this country. As David Cameron stood in the Commons on Wednesday, to finally apologise for 23 years of lies, evasions, distortions and scapegoating, the families and friends of the 96 victims were at last entitled to believe they have been vindicated utterly. But as the city of Liverpool came together, as football as a whole, fans from up and down the land, reached out to share their embrace, the game has an opportunity it must grasp. Too often, at Anfield, Old Trafford, Elland Road, Stamford Bridge, White Hart Lane, the Emirates and other grounds, the game we all love has been disfigured, damaged, blackened by the tribal chants that have no understanding. Nobody can claim they have not heard them. Nobody can deny their own club is free of ...

Things the Media and Haters Doesn't Get About the Gunners During every transfer window, Arsenal fans are forced to sift through innumerable stories linking the club with big-money moves for star players in the hope that Arsene Wenger will finally change his transfer policy and go for Big Fish. This is wishful thinking to say the least. Even when given a transfer budget in the range of £80 million last summer after the departures of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, the manager refused to go big. No matter what situation the club is in, there will be no transfers like those at Stamford Bridge or Old Trafford. Arsenal have the funds to make them, but it is just not Wenger's way, and he is not changing. Nevertheless, expensive players like Yann M'Vila continue to be linked, only to see their moves, as they were, inevitably disintegrate.

Chelsea FC Premier League title triumph is just the start of a new era Chelsea clinched the Barclays Premier League title and set a new goalscoring record with a sensational destruction of 10-man Wigan Athletic at Stamford Bridge. Coach Carlo Ancelotti guided the Blues to their first Championship success since 2006 in his debut season in England as Chelsea took their tally to 103 goals - the highest in the Premier League since Manchester United in 2000 and the first to achieve the century since Tottenham Hotspur in 1962/3. United's 4-0 victory over Stoke City at Old Trafford was irrelevant as the Blues finished the season one point clear of their rivals. Ancelotti's side smashed home seven or more goals for the fourth time this season as Wigan, who had defender Gary Caldwell sent-off on the half-hour, simply capitulated. A hat-trick from Golden Boot winner Didier Drogba, who finished the season with 29 Barclays Premier League goals, two from Nicolas Anelka, a Frank Lampard penalty and others from Salomon ...
