Recommended Posts


Too right Geezer, I hope it's written in his contract happy0034.gificon_wink.gif

Just the quotes taken from the interview on the official site:

The 28-year-old said: 'Chelsea are a big club. I have proved that I can score goals at the top level and I can do the same for Chelsea.

'I want to tell the Chelsea fans that I see this as a great opportunity and an honour to play for Chelsea and I will not disappoint them.

'Chelsea is the team I really wanted to join and I hope this will be the last club that I play for. I am delighted everything has been sorted out. This was a fantastic opportunity that I couldn't turn down.

'I am really looking forward to working with Avram and Chelsea's style of football really suits my game. I have been really impressed by what he and the team has done this season in what were very difficult circumstances.

'Everyone can see that they have had great results and are challenging for all the major trophies. The quality of the players they have is fantastic and the competition for places excites me.'

No, he has a 4,5 years contract...

Oh I know that but the man has had 9 clubs in 12 years and never spent more than 2.5 years at any of them!

Then it's time for him to settle down somewhere, win a s*itload of trophies and then in the end retire as a true Chelsea legend icon_wink.gif

That may have been what he said, Gem. But I think what he was thinking went more like this... 247.gif

The 28-year-old said: 'Chelsea are a big club. I know that because of the money they are going to pay me!'

'I want to tell the Chelsea fans that I see this as a great opportunity and an honour to play for Chelsea and I will not disappoint them, especially at one hundred thousand pounds a week.'

'Chelsea is the team I really wanted to join at one hundred thousand pounds a week and I hope this will be the last club that I play for, unless somebody offers me more money. I am delighted everything has been sorted out. This was a fantastic opportunity that I couldn't turn down due to being offered one hundred thousand pounds a week.'

'I am really looking forward to working with Avram and Chelsea's style of football really suits my game, as does earning one hundred thousand pounds a week. I have been really impressed by the thought of what I can buy with one hundred thousand pounds a week, and what the team has done this season in what were very difficult circumstances.

'Everyone can see that they have had great results and are challenging for all the major trophies. The quality of the players they have is fantastic and the competition for places excites me, as does earning one hundred thousand pounds a week.

"last club I ever play for" -- classic stuff. he's making me laugh already.

maybe he's like the main character from Memento who cannot form any new memories. Anelka can't remember he's already played for a bunch of other English teams.

it would be funny if he said at his opening press conference something like, "I'm delighted to arrive here in England and I look forward to playing in the Premiership."

Anyone know what's the deal with number 39?

Yeah, it's due to a tarot reading he had when he was a youngster, or so the story goes. 39 apparently being the number of professional clubs he'll play for during his career...

Speaking of Memento. That movie blew me away, what a great flick.
