Doug Ellis Plays Blinder Shocker!

I never thought I'd write anything like this but today Doug Ellis played an absolute blinder.

For the first time in many years, I'll give the bloke 10 out 10 for pure class.

Why?

Roman Abramovich (spoilt Russian brat that he is) stormed out of his seat at Villa Park before the final whistle like a petulant little toddler being told he can't have another packet of sweets. Who should be there, sitting on the other side, offering his hand and grinning like a Cheshire cat?

Doug Ellis.

Nice way to stick the knife in Doug, made me fall off my seat laughing.

Oh, and as for Mourinho the whinger, once again he couldn't just congratulate the winning team, he had to whine on about his team deserving something out of the game. Well, with two shots on target and after bringing off your best player (Shaun Wright-Phillips) you deserved nothing.

Would love to be a fly on the wall when those two spoilt kids next meet up. Talk about a class of egos.

COME ON THE VILLA and well done Doug, that was priceless, unlike your new 1.5million yacht!

I posted this as it happened in the forum. Absaloute first class move from Doug Ellis. The guy looks alot healthier these days. No more worries about business, lots of money in the bank and a free seat at Villa Park. President Emeritus 1-0 Red Rom

JP, Mourinho was very polite and respectful of Villa. He did not whinge. Villa did us proud today - amd all without a recognised rightback eh? We shut out the 2nd or 3rd best attacking team in the UK, just wait till Davis gets on the pitch. Times are good boys. Now get me AVFC48.....wink wink.

yeah, bit harsh Merlin, apparently Roman was going down to the dressing room. Bit of a rollocking for the players? Not sure why though, for once you were just beaten by the best team. Roman and Mourinho, it'll never last!!

stop being sensible koolbill, Mourhinho is a whinger!!!!!! :o)) He should, just for once, be a bit more graceful, just because they had posession does not mean they deserved anything out of the game.

Well done guys. A great performance from your team and your fans, and you kept us on top of the table to boot. Return to base agent Carson, your mission is accomplished, not that you were needed too much today. It is great to see that Roman has really adapted to life at CSKA London, afterall leaving games early seems to be a tradition among chav supporters!

U liked the Doug Ellis handshake too! Mourinho, I think is a great manager, but he does whinge. Can I ask you what's happened to Patrick Berger - my fantasy team could really do with him playing!

Proof, as if proof indeed were ever needed, that there truly is only one Herbert Douglas Ellis. Seriously though, like him or loathe him, one thing everyone is surely in full agreement upon, is the fact that in victory or defeat, Ellis was always the same courteous, charming, and honourable man. Mr Chelsea would do well to learn from Dougs approach and attitude towards fellow officers of opposing clubs. You stuck it to him Doug, made him look (and no doubt feel) like a right tit.
