Well..like the Chelsea team he is old and past it really.

Maybe by bigger he meant..fatter?

On a serious note..it shows how big a club we are that Adam and Carroll...when we came calling both put in transfer requests just so they could join the best club,with the best history,best tradition,best fans and the best future.

Or we lost Fernando Torres to Chelsea. It's all about opinions and like arseholes everyone has one it just so happens that Motson's stinks.

Why Lie, he never said that Chelsea where bigger than Liverpool, he was debating whether liverpool were bigger than Chelsea and isnt sure now with regards to winning trophies over the past few years

Dont think you listen to good pal..Steve claridge said Liverpool are the bigger club than chelsea, motson said why do you say that, liverpool havent won anything for years (senile man obviously forgot), claridge explained, Motson said well i strongly dispute that...Does that not sound like he believes they are

This question of "what is a big club" comes up from time to time. It all depends on your point of view. If you think the number of trophies recently won is the main criteria then, yes, Chelsea are the bigger club. If you think number of fans, both domestic and global, define the size of a club, and the club's long term history, then Liverpool are unquestionably, verifiably bigger.

Most rational people would say the latter criteria define the size a club.

And ALDO was on the phone just after he said it and said to remind Motson that we have won the European Cup fairly recently

Shouldn't the entire history of a club be taken account? Or are we allowed to airbrush what we don't like to only highlight the positive?

Even in recent history, while we have yet to win the league in 20 years, how many Champions League trophies has Chelsea won in that time?

We make more money, have more fans, sell more shirts, have more trophies, have more history.

No matter how you want to shake it, we are one of the biggest clubs in the world and have been for more than half a century. Who the **** are Chelsea in comparison?

apparently history doesnt count if your a manc or chav due to the fact that football didnt exist before the premier league because we havent wont it, doesnt matter that its the same competition with a fancy name and trophy

i know it is hard to hear but in the prem its not even a contest, all recent and bought but the prem title is always bought.

We are not in the winners list, even blackburn are ahead of us in the league titles won.

Does anyone know where fans speak the truth to each other cos il got to that site if there is such a thing?

but 20 years of football is also a decent sized piece to consider.

We have heard Merson and now Motson run Liverpool down today.

For me, i couldnt give a **** what people think, we know what a special and world famous club we are, we arnt just the bigest club in england, one of the biggest in the world

I have been argueing with my mates about who is the bigger club. They seem to think whoever is doing better is bigger :FP:

Until Chelsea reach 18 leagues and 5 European cups they shouldn't even be considered in the same category as Liverpool football Club

You only have to see the amount of hits we have on our website to see the difference, between us and the so called big clubs. Torres and Chelsea thinks he will sell loads of shirts, but the fact is the reason he sold that many shirts was because of our fans not him, those people will just turn to Suarez or Carroll, just wait and see, the Number 1 shirt sale will not be Torres again.

I posted a while back that i wasnt sure who Motson followed and alot of you said Chelsea which i couldnt see, well just listened to Talksport and he confirmed he used to go to chelsea games with his dad back in the 50's so clearly he does have a love for them.

I thought he had done at one stage, the BBC made a huge deal about the FA Cup Final being his 'last game'.

But apparently they mean his last live broadcast commentary.

He's basically surplus to requirements now.

Does my head in when people say we haven't won anything for years, or we live off our history! Since 2000 we have won the champions league (and reaching another final), 1 Uefa cup, 2 FA cups, 2 super cups and 3 league cups. This is all recent history, why do people think we haven't won anything since 1990 just because we haven't won the league, the ONLY trophy we haven't lifted!! Makes my blood boil!

Just to add to what I wrote above, we have won 9 major trophies in 12 years, maybe even 10 if we were to win the FA cup this year, that's not bad if you ask me, and comparable to anyone else including united!

Even if you write off our most succcessful period in the 70s and 80s, here's LFC v Chelsea only in the last 10 years:

Chelsea:
Leaugue Cup 2005, 2007
FA Cup 2007, 2009, 2010
League 2005, 2006, 2011

Liverpool:
League Cup 2001, 2003, 2012
FA Cup 2001, 2006
Champions League 2005
UEFA Cup 2001

8 trophies to 7, and 2 of ours were in Europe. Needless to say, we haven't spent anywhere near the hundreds of millions that Roman has.

By what measure?

Trophies won? far from it
Number of supporters worldwide? no
Is it because they had some success in recent years? far far from enough to even be mention in the same breath with Liverpool football club

Chelsea can easily fall back to mediocrity as they so dependent on just one man Abramovich if he leaves they crash

Surprises me that John Motson would say that TBH and I wonder what he meant by it. I think the fact that Chelsea's acheivements tonight has to be seen in the contect of Liverpool (and for example not another English teams) says more about Club Status. Anyway last person I heard make that comparison was Torres - but I wonder how he feels about it all deep down these days. Another appearance has not added to his goalss per game tally! Most likely Motson is caught up in the emotion of their win over Napoli. I'm sure everyone associated with Chelsea feel a bit like we did over olympiacos, a feeling heightened because London clubs have not had much that is comaparable to that experience. And a feeling also heightened by Arsenal's heroic but futile fight back against AC Milan just recently. In the cold light of day Motson may well reconsider. And Chelsea still have a long way to go to reach the Champions League final. What de Matteo can be assured of is Mr Abramovich's ruthlessness even if the difference between silver medals and Silverware is the width of a post in a penalty shoot out.
