Chelsea’s Philosophy My A***

“The most important people are the people at the top of the club, who own it,” Arnesen said. “They have the philosophy. Arsenal have their philosophy and we have ours and we stick to it. [Abramovich] believes in [youth]. But he demands that you will win so you have to sign players from outside. If you want to be top you need to hire the best players from outside. If you go with the youth you will probably not win a lot of trophies. If [you] don’t want to win trophies and want to be involved in the Champions League, then OK, you go with youth.”

Alright Mr. Arnesen, so you say that your boss believes in youth. Ok, I believe you (sarcasm intended)…But there is just one point that I would want people who are reading this to notice.

If Abrahamovich believes in youth, “If” he does, and also if he believes in winning trophies (this is implied, otherwise there would not be such fat cheques existing), then logically speaking he must believe that youth brings trophies. Just think about it…he’s totally contradicting himself.

I am not going to judge here, although I have a good mind to, but as far as I can see these people say something and do something else. And lastly, we [Arsenal] have a philosophy, you have money. So please do not say that we follow our philosophy and you yours. It makes no sense. If I have money and I go buy a new shirt, can I call that my philosohy…….that is ****’n absurd.

I’m actually tired of questioning Uefa and Fifa over this issue, so I wont. But if ‘some’ clubs are allowed to go on doing this, then with that logic smaller clubs will literally do “Jack” in the transfer market and players like Denilson will be worth 60 million pounds in the near future..

Guns-out,

THE ARMOURY

    Arsenal philosophy my arse. Gunners are the biggest puppets on the land.
    Yeah, believe in Wenger and Arsenal philosophy and develop the talent, then we’ll come and buy them. I don’t mind buying as long as we win things.
    As for the youth… well, let them grow up in smaller clubs like L’arse.

    Gunner philosophy my arse

      this shows how strong your youth system is. Experience with youth and look at your state now…money is the only way Chelsea can win, and sadly they do have it, or rather ‘he’ does have it….

      well it’s not like you’ve bought many arsenal players recently, only ashley cole (we got gallas + money anyway so it works both ways)

      as for winning things,even your team of millionaires got knocked out of the carling cup. you have less chance of winning the league than us this year and you haven’t got a hope in the champions league. there’s a very possible chance that you will win nothing this year and that’s despite having one of the most expensive teams in football history and having spent 70 mil in january (compared to our nothing). there’s a difference between buying good players (nasri 10 million) and throwing money at over-rated players (torres) who are good but not worth more than 15 mil in real terms. even if our overall team hasn’t been good enough, wenger has proved you don’t have to spend masses to get world class players. henry, pires, ljungberg, campbell, toure, lehmann, nasri, fabregas, wilshere, van persie need i go on? we’ve scored more goals than you this season with an entire squad which i doubt cost as much as you spent on just two players in january. torres for 50 million or van persie for 3 million, both very talented but injury prone. do the math.

      arsenal any day

        and just in case you can’t do the math my retarded chelsea supporting friend. there’s roughly a 47 million pound difference between what we paid for rvp and what you paid for torres. for that money you could have bought rvp when he was young, nasri (better than all your team this season for 10 mil, fabregas (free), vermaelen (10 mil), djourou (3 mil?). so that’s 26 million spent on players who are as good or better than your current team leaving 44 million left over from money you would have also spent on luiz to help diminish a little bit of that shocking debt you have. instead of a 75 million pound loss you’d have only a 31 loss, which as shit as that is, would have been impressive whilst signing so many quality players.

        oh well, i guess if you don’t have a business brain or common sense you can just throw massive amounts of money at any high profile players, make terrible debts and just hope you can punt your way to a trophy. when arsenal start winning again at your expense it’s going to be hilarious.

    You misinterpret what Arnesen is saying, which is that it is a youth developement policy supplemented by buying to help maintain the supply of trophies. It is not one way or the other. Wenger supplements his squad as well from occasionaly though he is not so willing or indeed able to spend the large sums Chelsea do. There is not a lot of difference between the two clubs philosophies really.

      how many kids have become regular players for chelsea in the past 6 years?

      whether they all work out or not is one thing but our policy is to promote youth where possible. guys who have played in our first team whilst 20 or younger in recent years:

      wilshere, ramsey, sczcesny, mannone, randall, denilson, fabregas, merida, bendtner, van persie, lupoli, emannuel-thomas, lansbury, eastmond, vela, walcott, gibbs, watt, song, djourou, senderos, bartley, gavin hoyte, justin hoyte, gilbert and i know i’m forgetting many.

      of those about half of them have had at least several appearance for the first team. rvp, walcott, djourou, denilson, wilshere, ramsey, fabregas, emannuel thomas, vela, gibbs eastmond and lansbury are all players who are either regularly involved in the first team squad in the last year or are hotly tipped to be by next season.

      who EXACTLY have chelsea got in their starting lineup who they’ve been playing from 20 or younger? john terry….. errrrrrr…… that’s about it. for the cost of fernando torres is worth more than every one of those kids i listed combined, times 2. so if you think chelsea and arsenal have a similar philosophy then you haven’t been looking very closely at arsenal for the past 6 years.

    Please don’t glorify Roman’s whimsical, self -indulgent, extravagent spending and constant turnover of managers, by calling it a philosophy.
    Chelsea fans have forgotten what its like to support a real football club,instead they enjoy Daddy buying them presents

    Well done Harry, attack the logic of the story to disprove it.
    Unfortunately, the facts are correct. It isn’t a philosphy, it IS just money.
    And before you decide to throw insults about it might be better to have followed football before 2005 but not many Chelsea “fans” did, so your forgiven.

    Chelsea’s philosophy is to buy the title.

    It works quite well for them ‘though. In the short-term.

    chelsea’s philosophy is much the same as a credit card. spend money you don’t own and never earned on crap which is over-priced to make your insignificant life feel more valuable whilst actually proving how shallow and empty you are. like a millionaire who buys a mansion with 10 bedrooms but lives there alone. life sucks to be so empty and earn nothing for yourself.

    we may have won nothing recently but dignity is something you can’t buy i’m afraid. and judging by your recent performances on the field, neither is a team which is going to win anything this year. even if we don’t win anything either, at least we didn’t splurge 300 million on mercenary players who just love the paycheck

    Arsenal has got a good philosophy, buy cheap and sell high, whenever necessary. play good football and win… well let’s skip the winning, i hope u guys win the carling cup this year, God knows you deserve it. Chelsea buy high, we can because we have a wealthy benefactor and it has worked in getting laurels.by the didn’t the chelsea youth win the youth F.A cup last year? signs of great things to come. no need for the hating, arsenal. well i understand when a team you used to lord it over comes up all of a sudden and starts trampling on you, no one will like that. but i think what frank meant by chelsea philosophy is, chelsea will buy top players and supplement with young guys, which is we think is cool… and yes it’s a new philosophy to us, but it’s still our philosophy.
