PostSubject: Chelsea Deny Sabotage Of Pitch   Fri Oct 06, 2006 10:24 pm

Chelsea have moved quickly to refute suggestions they are attempting to sabotage Barcelona's UEFA Champions League visit by pouring sand on the Stamford Bridge turf.

The Premiership champions insist the pitch is undergoing 'routine maintenance' aimed at improving the drainage system.
The two clubs were involved in a row over the state of the playing surface before their Champions League meeting last season.
The Spanish giants were unhappy Chelsea had deliberately allowed it to deteriorate ahead of the game.
Barca claimed it was an attempt to disrupt their free-flowing style of football but in the event they ran out 2-1 winners.
Now, with the European champions due to return to Stamford Bridge in less than a fortnight as part of the group stages of the competition, Chelsea have taken advantage of the international break to ensure the pitch is in the best possible condition.
A spokesperson for Chelsea explained: 'Whilst the Chelsea players are away representing their national teams, an 18-day break between home fixtures has allowed our ground staff to carry out routine maintenance work on the Stamford Bridge pitch.
'The drainage system is being improved with additional drainage channels dug to ensure the pitch remains in top condition.
'There are few times in the season when we can ensure our pitch remains in perfect condition.
'The international break allows us to carry out this work towards our aim of maintaining our playing surface as one of the best in the league. Recent years have seen much investment going into the pitch.
'The latest work on the drainage will improve a system installed as part of a complete overhaul that took place in the summer of 2003.
'That saw the old pitch removed right down to its base and new drainage ducts put in place, spaced four metres apart.
'It was half the spacing distance of the previous ducts and ensured the near instant removal of any volume of water the pitch was asked to absorb.
'Since then, severe water-logging - that had been such a problem in past decades - has been eradicated.'
Meanwhile, under-fire striker Andriy Shevchenko has again denied he betrayed fans of former club AC Milan by kissing the Chelsea badge.
Shevchenko was criticised for his actions by Milan supporters but the striker, who claims he is struggling to find his form at Stamford Bridge because of World Cup fatigue, has again attempted to defuse the ill-feeling.
Shevchenko told Corriere della Sera. 'I'm not a betrayer.
'Each of us takes the decisions in life he considers most right and these decisions must be respected.
'I have earned the respect of supporters by working on the pitch and the only jersey I have kissed and the only one I'll continue kissing is the one of my national team.
'My story with Milan, and with Milan as a city, is ended as a football situation.
'But, for the rest, it will not end.'

They didn't put sand on it last year. they just let their reserves and youths train and play on it everyday. Eventually there was no grass left.

After that game they then had a break for two weeks and when they played again they had a brand new pitch.

All i can say that chelsea ruin football and just because they know they are going to get beat they fuck up the game,


Drogba-17million, Shevchenko-30 million, Wright-Phillips-24 million, the look on Jose Mourinho's face when Chelsea lose, PRICELESS for everything else there's Abromovich.
