Chelsea will look to sign a midfielder in January as cover for Michael Essien during the African Nations' Cup.
- Guardian Unlimited Football: Chelsea look to Maniche
Oh yeah, do that, why don't ya? You bastards got so much money, that you don't even NEED to resort to all the hand-wringing and fervant hoping that other managers have to go through when players go for internationals, right?
ROMAN ABRAMOVICH to JOSE MOU-MOURINHO: Player gone for one-two months? No problem. Sign another player as 'cover' lor. I thought that Maniche use to play for you. ask him to come and play in England for a while lar. Then later we can sell him off for cheap. Don't worry, I still got a lot of spare change.
ROMAN ABRAMOVICH to JOSE MOU-MOURINHO: What, dowan to buy? then use my private jet lar! He can fly up and down from Cairo to Stamford Bridge. Don't worry about fuel, I got my own rocket fuel factory! BUAHAAHA!
ROMAN ABRAMOVICH to JOSE MOU-MOURINHO: No, I haven't heard anything about those other players in the squad. Not my problem anyway. they don't like the bench, they can go to Newcastle. That Scott Parker did that what.
ROMAN ABRAMOVICH to JOSE MOU-MOURINHO: Player injured for two months? No problem. Just buy some lesser-known player from Everton or something for 20 million "(haiyah, cheap!), play him for the two months that the player is out, and then sell him to Newcastle after that.
ROMAN ABRAMOVICH to JOSE MOU-MOURINHO: What, Jose? not enough wingers? Only two not enough, what if one of them gets injured? Why, no problem. I buy you another one, ok? Who you want, Shaun Wright-Philips? Only 23 million, cheap! Dowan? How about that Steven Gerrard? 30 million only what! We got Frank Lampard oledi? Haiyah, never mind lah. We buy gerrard, then Liverpool no more midfielder mar! Best!
Bah. Who says you can't buy success eh?
