We all know that Petr Cech is a fantastic goalkeeper that is going to be instrumental in Arsenal winning the Premier League title this season :-), but I’m not sure that he should be allowed to answer questions from journalists in the future, as he is totally out of touch with this world!
I have seen two short articles today that illustrate this perfectly. In the first it seems he has not seen the Premiership table lately, because he thinks Chelsea are still favourites for the title! “It surprises me because the squad of Chelsea is among the best in the Premier League,” Cech was quoted as saying. “In addition, the coach Mourinho shaped it to his liking.
“What is wrong? I am no longer there, so it’s hard for me to evaluate. Anyway, the season is long and Chelsea is in my eyes still the favourite.”
Wrong Petr, ARSENAL are now favourites in my eyes! Remember who you play for you genius!
Secondly, he is of the opinion that Wenger and Mourinho are very similar types of people. He said: “The similarity is that everybody wants to win. If you ask Jose Mourinho or Arsene Wenger if they want to win everything – yes they do.
“You can see they don’t like losing games, and I think this is something you need to have in you if you want to be successful.”
I hate to burst your bubble Petr, but that statement means that every single manager of every single team in the world is the same, but to compare a manager who will resort to any dirty tactics to win a game, with a thoughtful respectful manager who wants to win by playing attractive football, you will find that they are complete opposites.
But my favourite (mis)quote from Cech, is when he was asked if he thought that their similarities (!) is the reason they always clash, he replied: “It’s more a question for them. But, yes, sometimes two pluses doesn’t make a plus.”
Well Petr, if there is any certainty in this world, if you add two pluses together you will ALWAYS get a plus for an answer! Ask any schoolboy mathematician.
So Petr, please do us all a favour and do your talking on the field, not into a microphone….
