Shabby Singh of ESPN the people here from sub continent believe that without Robinho or Kaka we can not play sexy football.Pure Dumb!I don't believe it.I fully believe we need one more creative player to do that and after getting DECO we r capable of playing sexy football.But one thing u can't expect to play sexy football all the time.There is times when opposition r too physical,Pitch,tactics all matter and JJB is a place where u bring any team I guarantee they will struggle to play good football even with KAKA and ROBINHO in same team there will be some matches where CHELSEA can not play sexy football.So for all those friends plz make ur expectation practical.Don't expect us to bang every one with 4 goals every time.Well played WIGAN.Snatch points from other Top teams & I guess it will be bottom half finish for u.All the best till u travel to Bridge.
