'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Chelsea Poach Leeds Youngster

CSKA Chelsea Red Star have done it again, stealing yet another product of the Leeds United academy in England youth international Ben Gordon.

Chelsea, who a year ago controversially acquired the services of Michael Woods and Tommy Taiwo seem to be developing a habit of buying a number of youngsters from around the country with Roman Abramovich`s "pocket money."

The Sunday People suggest that Chelsea will pay Leeds 1.5million for the services of Gordon in instalments,which must be music to the ears of our own dominating leader Uncle Ken.

Lets not worry about the small things my dirty little losers. Your club is a pile of sh#*e and Dennis has made the worst decision of his working life joining your joke of a club. Are you Scarborough in disguise!!!!!! In a couple of years you will be able to play them youi never know they might even let you share there ground after the council sell yours HaHaHaHaHaHa. Chelsea Aggro, Chelsea Aggro!!!
Ha ha, knobs. I pointed out your error and instead of thanking me you deleted my post and corrected your error with know acknowledgment. As always, no class. Agents Wise and Poyet, return to base. Mission accomplished.

We stole him. Then we paid for him. Make your mind up, you northern monkey.
I don't mind you having a go at us but I think it shows your mentality when you are having a pop at a club that are probably going to not exist anytime now.
I have no problem with Scarborough I have fond memories of visiting them and feel sorry for there fans but just letting you know where you will be in a couple of years!!!!!!
We all hate Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and Leeds and we all fackin' hate Leeds!
Oh and cheers for Woods by the way - he is going to be qaulity one day. Good job we rescued the poor lad from Division One football eh?
Dazza - no sympathy from us I'm afraid. You'd be throwing a northern chimp's teaparty if the positions were reversed and you know you would.
I think its slightly different when you are talking about a very small club like Scarborough and then Chelsea. Obviously anybody in the country would take great delight in rubbing a bigger clubs nose in it.
Chelsea are going around buying up the young talent in the country just so nobody else can get in. Will this kid make it in the Chelsea team? Nope probably not. Despite our financial issues he would have probably been much better off. I've not seen that Sky One competition winner anywhere near the first team yet either. Oh and another thing, aren't Chelski fans so easy to wind up?
Poor dirty Leeds, the vultures are circling and picking up the last pieces of talent left. Enjoy your one and only season in the third division, (can't be ars ed with these new fangled rebranded league names), you'll soon be hitting the heights of the fourth division. Oh the joys........LOL
Nobody is bad mouthing Scarborough only your Dirty s#*t team. Hope your looking forward to getting spanked by Bournmouth next season I can't wait to see you get relegated to the Nationwide North. It won't be long till your highlight of the year will be a massive derby against the Filey Flyers!!!!!! HaHaHaHaHa
Everyone around here always forgets the issue at the time and starts a war between Chelsea and Leeds. That is very sad :{
If you can't stand the heat get out of the oven the war will never end not that it is much of a competition!!!!!!!!!
1.5m seems reasonable compensation for the lad.
You mean Leeds are League One and Chelsea are in the Prem? But then one is backrolled and the other is not. Interesting...
Not for the first time a big club comes in for one of your youngsters, why cant you keep them?
will it ever happen
