Yeah, definitely aimed at the ref.

On MOTD they slowed it down from another angle (from the dugout camera) and it was 99% proven it didnt touch his arm as the ball did not move a smither as it passed Ashleys left arm, NOT A SMITHER!

It was a decision that ref's give in the last minute to even up a 3 player sending off !

Now both mangers take something and the ref is saved !

But Ashley was very very unlucky to be sent off.

Yeah the boos for the ref... which I think the only decision he got wrong was the last penalty, which no one in the ground could have said yes or no to... but in the words of the great JT after The Poo semi final.... "if you don't see it don't give it"

Got to say that Martin O'neil is a prat of the hightest order ! Pathetic interview. All decisions were clear cut except the Ashley one !

That was the worst thing about it, the referee had a good view and let it play on, but the linesman, despite having a terrible view was flagging like crazy for a penalty :|

Actually the linesman was flagging for a goal and a couple of Villa players started to point this out even running across to the touchline to bring it to O'Neills attention. Quite how he could say the ball, had crossed the line I do not know. To signal for a penalty jhe has to put the flag across his chest, he pointed straight back to the centre line and kept the flag there for a good 5 seconds or so.

I was under the impression that the linesman was consulted to confirm that Ashley had handled the ball, afterall thats when the red card was brandished.

No I think you'll find the discussion went thus:

Ref - " Are you saying the ball crossed the line?"

Liney - "I am but it didn't but I need the money from the 4-4 bet I've put on"

Ref - "You bet on that score too? We'll both be quids in if we play our cards right"

Liney - "But TV will show the ball didn't even reach the line let alone cross it"

Ref - "Tell you what, the ball did go quite near his arm after he headed it away so let's give a penalty for that."

Liney = "Agreed. What are you going to do with your winnings?"

Ref - "I'm going to buy my good friends Alex and Arsene a drink then I'm going to pay Rafa to give me a lap dance"

Liney - "Ooh can I come?"

Ref - "Only after I've had my wicked way with Rafa first"

Well, whether you agree with it or not, (personally, I don't), the booing was the loudest and longest I've heard at SW6 for many a year. All aimed at Avram and Roman

"You don't know what you're doing" rang out around all parts of the ground after Grant's substitutions. And mass chants of "Jose Mourinho" sprang up more than once in the Shed and West stands.

A fella sits in front of me had some verbals with two blokes a bit further along and it looked likely to kick off. Luckily Kalou, (who had been dreadful all afternoon), popped up with an unlikely winner.

Whatever Grant says in today's papers about the fans being behind him, I can tell you one fact. An awful lot of them aren't.

The interesting thing about the booing when Cole went off was that it wasn't a particularly surprising or unjustified change. It was almost as if people were just waiting for an excuse to have a go. Similarly when Ballack went off. It was clear that he had run out of steam and should have been subbed quite a lot earlier. But as soon as his number went up the chants of "you don't know what you're doing" started up.

I do think that Grant lost the plot after Newcastle scored. It was obvious we needed to bring on Sidwell for Ballack to try and get control of the game back but instead he did nothing and then brought on Pizarro for Cole.

In the end we got very lucky, but the warning signs are there for all to see.

I know. And I'm talking about what happened against Newcastle.

But yesterdays boo's (on the whole) were for a totally different reason to last weeks boo's against Villa. Last week they were almost entirley aimed at the ref/linesman.

Being a Chelsea fan Rule#1....

NEVER BOO PLAYERS OR MANAGMENT.....NEVER !

If you do, your no Chelsea fan !

By all means hold them accountable, but not with boo's !

Edited to add i am not saying you were booing just.

Maybe it's my memory playing me tricks - it wouldn't be the first time by any means - but I'm sure that back in the old days, i.e. when the Shed was the Shed. your average player wasn't a millionaire, and we were (mostly) crap, but I really don't remember us booing our own players and management, personal abuse maybe but that was very different from the hate filled hysteria that seems to be more the norm nowadays. Any actual hatred would be reserved for the opposition, which is where it well and truly belongs.

There seems to be an all too prevalant attitude these days, I'm guessing among newer match-goers, something along the lines of "We hate you and we reserve the right to boo you because you don't fulfill our expectations". Tell me if I'm wrong about this, please do.

Were kidding ourselves if we think it wasnt like that yesteryear, it was, just not as easily done.

We certainly wouldnt boo a team in 3rd place in league and last 8 of European cup !

Oh no, no way, anyone want to disagree with that ?

We would SING SING SING !!!!

10 men .....

Too right mate. The newbies have only known success, and so expect it all the time. Older fans nearly saw us relegated to the old Division 3, and tend to regard success as a privilege rather than something to be taken for granted (no pun intended) icon_wink.gif

Having said that, I remember Peter Houseman used to get quite a bit of stick back in the early 70's, but that was mainly because he refused to steam into tackles like the rest of the team did. Even then, the fans still gave him credit where it was due - he was one of the best left-wingers I've seen at Chelsea. Then one day he must have got frustrated, went into a tackle and left his opponent wondering what hit him - thus was born the immortal song, "Tiger, Tiger Houseman, Tiger Houseman on the wing!" icon_lol.gif

Poor old Pete ... looking back it's clear how much he was underestimated by the crowd at Stamford Bridge, including me. I'm ashamed to say that I was more than happy to join in the more frequent chants of Mary Houseman or Peter Housewife ...
