Blatter Is Just Out Of Order.

Football is an act of defending and attacking. A good attacking display can win a football match as an impressive defensive display certainly can. But it seems Chelsea FC have not been given an apt respect that goes with winning the UEFA Champions League. Their overall performance in the competition has been overshadowed by pundits pointing out the defensive tactics they employed against Barcelona but that shouldn’t be the case. Managers in the game stand on the touchline for a reason; tell their players how the game should be played. And Chelsea’s interim boss Roberto Di Mateo has been shown the uttermost disrespect for masterminding Chelsea’s Champions league triumph. The manager’s first Champions league game after taking over as caretaker boss was to overturn a 3-1 deficit against Napoli at Stanford Bridge. He orchestrated a fine 4-1 win to progress, saw off Benfica and tactically outclassed Bacelona to progress to the final scoring two goals at the Nou Camp – something that football rarely sees in the past few years. How impressive can a manager and football a football club be?

The highest form of insolence has come from the president of football’s highest governing body claiming that penalty shootouts should be scrapped for another alternative barely a week after Chelsea won the Champions League final on penalties. Maybe Sepp Blatter might have a better idea of saving us from the ‘drama’ and ‘tragedy’ but for him to make us think his comments was purely a coincidence is just unacceptable. The Germans progressed to the final by beating Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid on penalties and how the Bayern Munchen players and fans might have loved the unfolding drama. Similar price was there for the taking and Chelsea beat them to their game. Good drama Chelsea fans, trauma Bayern fans: that’s the name of the game.

The FIFA president left his proposal into the hands of Franz Beckenbauer, a head of FIFA’s Task Force to improve the game before World Cup 2014. Perhaps football does really need change and with Sepp Blatter’s history of unacceptable comments, Franz and his panel should well be thinking about scrapping the blathering Sepp Blatter for a better football.

    Sepp Blatter is funny. He is getting old everyday. His thinking almost male me laugh in my mother’s tongue. What better way is there to separate a tie after 120min than a penalty shoot out. You can’t ask them to go home and come back the next day and play again. Do you want to kill them?

    What nonsense. He should be stepping down as president. If Chelsea bet Athletic Madrid in the uefa super cup with goals coming frm corner kicks I bet corner kicks will be scrapped from the game too. I hate the way the world is looking down on Chelsea’s victories.
