yawn...the guy's hatred of chelsea just makes for another bitter rant...that's not to say he doesn't make a few fair points, but one couldn't help but feel his anger is at all things chelsea rather than lamps

I haven't read te article and don't plan to, sorry.

But at the moment, Lampard isn't helping himself. He and players like Ronaldo are fair game at the moment. One seems to quibble over £10,000 a week and an extra year, whilst the other agrees he is a slave. With all the credit crunch, rising prices and such in England... its no wonder people are getting pissed off with footballers and their "demands".

Now of course, neither they, nor us, know the real situation with either player, but you can see why people are getting pissed off.

Haven't read the article either nor do I intend to but fair to say there are a few journo's having a pop at Frank's greed today suggesting he should take a look at what's happening in the wider world with prices going through the roof for the ordinary folk. Asking for extra is obscene and when it comes down to it are Inter really going to pay the difference? I very much doubt it.

There is a big list of hack chelsea haters but i beg you all not to take anything Paddy Collins writes about Chelsea seriously because he is so far over the line of fair journalism its untrue. It almost borders on unprofessionalism.

This is the man who once wrote an article titled 'why we should all hate chelsea' you may recall.

Which is why I have no intention of reading his tat. The journo's I refer to in my post include some which have been very complimentary about CFC but are asking Frank to take a reality check. Seems a reasonable request to me.

The major problem I have with Patrick Collins is number of occasions he actually goes out of his way to deliberately paint anybody or anything relating to Chelsea in a bad light. He simply cannot help himself, even when the opportunity to choose a more obvious target [in this case Ronaldo] stares him in the face. Of course, Ronaldo plays for United and Collins therefore exempts him from the uncontrolled bile he unleashes on Frank and merely refers to him as being ‘daft and deluded’.

To most fair minded journalists [without an axe to grind] this is akin to your old fashioned moralistic headmaster letting off the insufferable prig of a pupil because his Dad happens to be a member of your particular Board of Governors and then promptly giving one of the most dedicated boys in any class you care to name a ritual beating for no other reason than it gives you personal pleasure every time [and there have been many] that you do it.

A glance at all the other recent articles by Collins listed on the page reveals the fact that he gets writer’s block when it comes to the little winker, even when he is the centre of attention worldwide and every other journalist has had a field day on his attitude, personality and character defects. Collins? Well, daft and deluded will do, anymore than that means he’s got less space to get stuck into Frank.

Worse still [in terms of journalism] is that he doesn’t realise how stupid it makes him look in the eyes of his peers. Hugh McIlvanney, for example, has written superbly on the whole shooting match of topics from Blatter/Ronaldo/Calderon/ to Lampard/Mourinho/Scolari and all in one piece without pussyfooting around anything related to Manchester United, as if it were sacrosanct. Read and learn, Patrick, because that’s what real journalists do, and then you might just begin to understand why others are laughing at you behind your back.

I agree with that 100%.

An honourable mention should go to Steve 'Fergies whore' Curry btw when discussing those with nothing good to say about Chelsea.

But however bad these guys are to us, you have to say that in recent years we have not given them ammunition.

I think it was him that once wrote an article stating that Liverscum fans were right to sing "you ain't got no history".

Tosser.

This is the same bloke who lauded the Barca fans who threw bottles at Abramovich a few years ago. A very bad journalist.

Oh yeah no doubt about that and as others have said Frank isnt making things easy on himself either.

But it was just so predictable that Collins was going to write that article. Ive got no issues with hacks taking a pop but i just ask its done in a fair manner and in the case of Collins it never happens. He is just so blinkered it makes him look bad at his job.
