Club websites are, very understandably, prone to being a touch biased. It goes with the territory, of course.
But Chelsea’s website left fans very amused indeed at the way it reported the club’s comprehensive defeat to Manchester City on Sunday.
We’ve highlighted a few of the most entertaining lines in the screenshot above, which would leave any fan who did not watch the match in no doubt that Chelsea were horribly hard done by.
Quite clearly, Chelsea’s emphatic defeat to City was down to bad luck and poor refereeing decisions – and, well, nothing else.
The fact that there was no byline on the report led many to suggest that it could have been knocked up by Jose Mourinho…
The Chelsea Match report is so childish. Either Moanrinho wrote that by himself or left it for his son.

That Chelsea website match report has been outsourced to the Korean Central News Agency out of Pyongyang hasn’t it?

Re Pravda-ish match report on Chelsea website, this (from Wigan 0 Chelsea 6 in 2010) remains the classic of the genre http://t.co/obO40lpLXy
