Mourinho pleading with del Bosque to drop Diego Costa - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Chelsea manager José Mourinho is wanting Diego Costa to be left out of the Spanish national team for their upcoming fixtures next month.
The Brazilian-born striker was on the scoresheet again for Chelsea on Saturday as he scored the second of Chelsea's three goals in their comfortable home win over Aston Villa to keep them top of the Premier League.
Holy smokes, guys. No, not that kind of smokes, Jack Wilshere. Holy smokes, as in: holy smokes the Premier League season kicks off in less than a week. I know last week that I promised some coverage of our preseason friendlies, but that was back when I had lost track..
What a difference a couple of weeks make in football. In that period of time, Chelsea had been linked with moves for three of the World Cup's most coveted midfielders. Now as the World Cup has finished, it's believed that ALL three of those players are not coming to West London!.
That's the thing about the close season with the transfer window being open, there is always plenty of rumours and speculation.
IS ARSENE WENGER DOING CORROSIVE DAMAGE TO HIS REPUTATION by TorontoArsenal Despite the disappointing results of the past decade it appears fans of Arsenal FC, including myself, are powerless when it comes to being able to force through desperately needed changes because of Arsene Wenger's entrenched position within the Arsenal FC hierarchy.
So Wenger hurt Mourinho......Great! by By AondoaverK I have to admit that my best moment during the last Chelsea vs. Arsenal clash at Stamford bridge was the touchline spat between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho. I felt like Le Prof won that round even though we lost the match by those two unreplied goals.
It was only a few weeks ago that Arsenal fans were hearing some good news on Sami Khedira in various Arsenal transfer rumours around the media. The gist of it was that the Gunners had agreed personal terms with the Germany international and just needed to wrap up the deal with his current club Real [.
When Arsenal meekly lost to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge last weekend, most Gooners became resigned to fighting out for fourth place in the League again come the end of the season, but Arsene Wenger believes that our title challenge is far from over. "Chelsea will also have a difficult period in the season.
Maybe they do things differently in France, maybe the Arsenal and France international defender has a character as spiky as his hairdo and is always falling out with his friends and calling them names. In fact, the disciplinary record of Laurent Koscielny would back that theory up, as it was revealed the other day in [.
A thought on Arsene Wenger by KM What was expected is what happened. They stole my shoes! Can you imagine in the 21st century they'd take your shoes from your doorstep? Now that was unexpected, but the game at the weekend ended as predicted. Chelsea beat us 2 0 and Wenger lost another game [...]

With all the bad blood between Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho, and with the desire for Arsenal to show that last season's awful string of results away to the Premier League big boys wasan aberration, there is a feeling that the Frenchman will send the Gunners out with the intent to attack the league leaders [.
It is understandable that Arsene Wenger was disappointed to lose the Spanish international midfielder from his Arsenal team back in 2011, especially with the rumoured way that Cesc Fabregas left the Frenchman little choice but to sell his star player to La Liga club Barcelona. But because it was a return to his former club [.
Arsene Wenger is well aware that he has not beaten Jose Mourinho as Chelsea boss in eleven games with Arsenal, but he believes that he now has a team capable of shocking the League leaders at Stamford Bridge. Last season's corresponding fixture ended in a 6-0 rout over the Gunners, but Wenger is only looking [.
Galatasaray result should not fool anyone by KM Football is often about the last result and the next game. In Arsenal's case the last result was a comfortable 4-1 win against Galatasaray and the next game is against the best team in the premier league so far Chelsea. We finally put in an expected [..
The fact that Arsenal had some sort of first refusal clause with Cesc Fabregas and that Arsene Wenger decided not to utilise it this summer was always going to be a bone of contention with us Arsenal fans. And the fact that our former captain then went on to play for our least favourite manager [...]
Make no mistake about it Arsenal fans, an away game at Chelsea is likely to be the hardest fixture for us in the Premier League this season. It always has been, especially with Jose Mourinho in charge of the Blues, with Arsene Wenger still to register a win over the Portuguese pillock. And this season [.
When Arsenal travelled to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in the Premier League in late March, we ended up with our biggest defeat of the season. And after that 6-0 humbling, made even worse by the fact that it was a landmark day for Arsene Wenger and was completely ruined by his arch enemy Jose [...
It can be frustrating for Arsenal fans at times, when the team or a particular player have just come off the pitch after an absolute shocker. Unlike some managers (cough, cough Mourinho and Fergie I'm looking at you) the man we call the Prof is always supportive of his Gunners. To be fair to the [...
There are reports this morning that Arsenal are attempting to hijack Chelsea's move for the French striker Loic Remy, but we all know that Arsene Wenger had three months to meet the Frenchman's buy-out clause of just 8.5million but has only now decided to take action after Olivier Giroud was ruled out for the next [.
Arsene Wenger has confirmed that Arsenal will have to do without Olivier Giroud leading the line for around four months after the Frenchman fractured his left tibia at the end of the Everton game, but at least the timing of the injury gives the boss a few days to bring in a replacement. But while [..
The annoying Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is usually running Arsene Wenger down in one way or another, but I have finally found a subject that they both agree on. The Arsenal boss has been complaining about the Premier League not delaying the start of the season, so as to give the players enough time to [.
Can Arsene Wenger prove Jose Mourinho wrong once again? by SE "He is a specialist in failure. 8 years without a piece of silverware, that is failure" were the words coming from the putrid Portuguese, who didn't fail to mince his words when he held parties for journalists on Friday evenings as part of pre-match [.
For quite a while now, it has not been the easiest job in the world to be an Arsenal fan. Not only have we had to endure the club's slide from the pinnacle of becoming the only team not to lose a single game in a Premier League season, but have had to bite our [...]
It looks like Arsenal could soon have five World Cup winning players in the squad, when previously it was only our Spanish midfield maestro Santi Cazorla with one of FIFA's top medals to his name. After Germany beat Argentina in extra time on Sunday night, three more Gunners joined Cazorla, and according to a Daily [.
There is a very unexpected Arsenal transfer rumour doing the rounds this morning. It involves a shock move by Arsene Wenger for the Serbian international defender Branislav Ivanovic. I am not surprised to hear that the Frenchman would like to sign the Serb, as reported by Metro, I just cannot see it happening.
Arsenal´s old El Capitan has confirmed that Arsene Wenger simply rejected to exercise the Gunners famous "buy-back" option when Cesc Fabregas decided it was time to leave Barcelona, but is now looking to be "phenomenally successful" at our bitter rivals Chelsea. Fabregas revealed that in his conversations with Wenger,the Frenchman made it clear that Mesut [.
I am glad that Arsenal are not a club that has bought it's way to football glory, and that Arsene Wenger has done more for the Gunners, English football and many young footballers' careers. But as much as we might feel a bit superior in some ways to the billionaire's plaything that is Chelsea, it [..
There is some Arsenal transfer news today that could be seen as bad news for the Gunners, but I personally do not think so. Because the Arsenal rumour linking us with a free summer transfer move for the Cameroon international striker Samuel Eto'o never seemed like a good idea to me. The 33-year old may [.
There has been a lot of talk about the former Arsenal captain and fan favourite Cesc Fabregas recently. Many of us Gooners have always harboured hopes that we would see the midfield magician back in the red and white of Arsenal one day, so the growing likelihood of him going to Chelsea does not make [.
It seems like Arsenal and Chelsea are operating at different poles of the football world. It is not all about the mutual bad feeling between managers Arsene Wenger and Jose Mourinho either, although clearly the two do not see eye to eye on very much at all. Now The Telegraph are reporting that the spiteful [.
