In the Chelski Gazzetta today it say I about to sign Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Cristiano Ronaldo, Robinho, Cesc Fabregas and Fernando Torres in the new year! Whatta Mistaka da maka! In January, I heading off to Milano to finda some new suits as the English weather, how you say, make them all soggy and look bad. I no like snow. I get Christmas card today in the post from Jose.

Buon Natale! I getta up early and go to training pitches. Players come in a bit later after I have my meetings with staff. We have a nice glass of Sherry and laugha at the players Christmas presents. Somma naughty boy buy JT a t-shirt with what lookalike a car road sign that says “Bridge Access Only : £10,000” written on it. He is forced to wear it in training and we have much laughter! Afterwards we have mince pies and Joey Cole singa “Leetle Donkey” to us. He very good, but not X-Factor yet. Lamps though he eatta lot mince pies and I worry about him being fit tomorrow for the game with Birmingham. Afterwards the chairman come down. He nice man. He gives us all an Aston Martin DB9, a private Jet and a statue of Mickey Droy made of solid gold and encrusted with diamonds. He apologise for gifts and say it’s cos of credit crunch and that Sergio Aguero want a lot more money than he is worth. Ah well.  I don’ta mind really.  I wish him “Buon Natale!” just before I go and speaka with the press for tomorrow’s game.

We playa Birmingham today and we notta win again. I so angry I fling my Viennetta against the wall in fury! I learna this from Fergie who kicka da boot and Arsene who throwa da pizza! I say “Lamps! Too much mince pie and not enough goals!”. I speaka to Ballack but he stare at me and I afraid. He looka like a  terminator man. I calla him “Germanator” from nowa on.
