First of all to compare this chelsea team to uniteds team of 99-01 is laughable. Brand of football and quality is in a differant league, chelsea cant win games playing football. We won the CL with the most exciting games, a group of Barca, and Bayern, and inter juve and bayern to the victory. In the league we won on the last day, so many exciting last 10 minute goals. In the fa cup everybody remembers giggs legend goal and that game against arsenal. Chelsea have nothing worth remembering. Oh ye barca last season, only game worth mentioning. Chelsea arent a patch on that united team, football or quality wise. THe premier league is awful this season. 12 point gap, but I cant believe that united are 2nd. We are nowhere near the team we used to be but we still beat you. Chelsea have raised the bar up to the level that united and arsenal were at in 2004, but both united and clearly arsenal have gone backwards since then.
Winning trophies is commendable. But winning trophies playing great football will always be remembered. Chelseas brand of football will never be remembered. People remember 99 cause of the last minute win against the germans, the giggs goal against arsenal in the fa cup. People remember arsenals unbeaten season as much for the brand of football they play as anything else. People will remember last season somewhat because it broke the mould of united and arsenals domination. People will forget this season cause not only have chelsea walked it but they have added nothing fresh at all footballwise or anything good. Love or hate united they were never this boring!!
Its never good for a league to have any team dominating it, no matter who it is. Its nice for the fans of the team dominating alright. United were worth watching for many reasons. There was always likely to be upsets and you cant compare a 4-4-2 formation with 2 attacking wingers, an attacking and defencive midfielder and 2 strikers to chelsea's all out defence formation. Mourhino has already lambased cole for being too advengtourous and praised drogba for his defensive qualities. I dont know how you managed to come to that opinion about united 00 and chelsea. I could at least watch and respect arsenal when they were at their best under wenger, I cant watch any chelsea game cause its really bad and not entertaining. I suppose sometimes believing a lie is easier then dealing with the truth. But believe me, chelsea play puke football 98% of the time.
