- In my personal experience, the mocking, teasing and cracking between us and Chelsea fans are not that intense, vis-a-vis ManUre. Chelsea might have held the better record against LFC and last season they beat us soundly at Anfield, but still there is no serious animosity between the fans.
- I guess the legacy with the UK fan based are the same, and what more to say with the Chelsea fans over here in Malaysia. They simply don't have the tradition and the fan club here in Malaysia was only initiated when Chelsea was bought by the Russian oligarch and came that loud mouth Portuguese.
- This is totally different between ManUre and LFC. The marketing ploy by that club was more globally approached than us. Perhaps, the old regime of Anfield was a bit orthodox in their English. They prefer to keep it domestic. hahaha...
- That's why even though LFC is meeting Chelsea this coming Sunday, the level of hatred is almost non-existent... at least that's what I felt within my surroundings. Well, there are only a few of them who confessed to be a Chelsea fan in the office or my futsal pitch. That's a minority to compare against those who proudly wearing the Carlsberg logo (including this writer... hahaha) and those who wore the logo of a bankrupt insurances company.
- This week has been a mix for both Chelsea and Liverpool. While Chelsea was shell-shocked after been humiliated by Wigan last week, they managed to score in the Champions League. Otherwise for LFC, they humbled Hull City by a massive margin of 6-1 but lost dreadfully in the Champions League. So both are coming to the game with a scarce and may be, both wanted to prove to their respective fans that all is not over yet or panic about their form.
- I shall come back with a bit serious analytical pointers tomorrow or when ever I feel free before Saturday.

Chelsea is not a threat. Man.U still is.
It's not a crash. It's a common thing... a bump on the road...
