08:22 AM ET 12.11 | Manager Andre Villas-Boas has ordered his Chelsea players to include him in their goal celebrations, The Sun reported Saturday. Villas-Boas issued the demand to his Blues stars days after he accused the media of having an agenda against him and the team over apparent infighting at the English Premier League giant. The Portuguese believes recognizing the work of him and his assistants after goals are scored will display the solidarity at the club. "The manager has asked the players to look across and recognize him and his staff on the bench after a goal," an unnamed club spokesman said.

He just wants to be loved. Is that so wrong?

It sucks to be Mourinho. He went as far as skipping press conferences to avoid saying anything that would fire Barca up and he still got his **** handed to him.

Cristiano in the same list as Messi and Xavi? Please!

Hilarious! This T&R is straight out of "The Office"!!

I will prove that we have a harmonious work center. I have ordered all of my subordinates to say nice things about me. They will not be able to eat lunch or go home prior to doing so.


P.s. The beatings will continue until morale improves.

Honestly, I don't see how Real lost that game. They were the better team on the day, but still managed to screw it up!

The only goal they could muster was given to them on a silver platter.

Villas-Boas sounds really needy in this story. If this is true it's really sad.
