Teymur Rajabov clocks in for Magnus Carlsen versus Viswanathan Anand.

What he said:

Azerbaijani chess Grandmaster Teymur Rajabov makes it obvious that he expects partisanship on the lines of nationality in the  play-off in Sochi between current world champion Magnus Carlsen and title contender Viswanathan Anand. The former prodigy was commenting on the third game in the series that Anand won to level scores 1.5—1.5.

What Rajabov really meant:

“Time is relative. Indian fans are in a hurry to see their champion reinstated; the Norwegians (and Carlsen’s supporters) are none-too-keen. The winner always seems to have all the time in the world to make his moves; the loser none.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I wonder if Carlsen’s clock is broken. Could we have cuckoo clocks instead for the players?”
