Scolari and his mouthpieces have insisted in the press that Chelsea is the happiest team in all football and that defender Alex is downright giddy with contempt...er, contentment. Scolari called anyone who said anything different was a great big liar:
"Not even one player on Chelsea has said even one word of complaint, criticism or even comment about the substitutions in the English championships or the Championship Leagues..."
Scolari failed to mention that players are heavily fined for speaking and that defender Alex has had his voice box removed for careless comments in the past.
As for Scolari leaving Chelsea for the Brazilian National Team, Luis held one finger over his lips and pointed to the clubhouse motto on the locker room wall: Silence is Golden !
