Despite watching his players being repeatedly pelted with coins, lighters and bottles during their 1-0 win over QPR yesterday, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho remained decidedly philosophical in the aftermath.

Asked about the aggressive Loftus Road crowd after the game, Mourinho refused to condemn the fans responsible, simply meditating on an “emotional” derby in uncharacteristically chipper fashion.

“The game was correct in the pitch and correct in the stands,” he told reporters.

“It is not easy in an emotional game.

“If, at the end of the game, someone threw a pound coin, put it in your pocket.

“If someone threw a chocolate, eat it.

“It is no problem. Everybody needs a pound.”

Well we guess that’s true enough, though we can’t help but wonder if he’d have been trotting out the same platitudes had Chelsea lost.

Hey ho. Se a vida é, that’s the way life is.

Now we know where Diego Costa gets it from…


Here’s just a small example of the detritus that was hurled onto the pitch while Cesc Fabregas celebrated his 88th-minute winning goal – Chelsea’s one and only shot on target…

    I think it’s safe to say that victory pretty much puts the title in Chelsea’s hands. Feel bad for the QPR fans though: the team battled well and god only knows what will happen to them when they get relegated with all their financial problems. QPR might end up with multiple relegations whilst Rob Green sits on the Chelsea bench as back up goal keeper, picking up his wages, without a thought in the world for QPR.
