Well Done To Chelsea Today


BluesFTW

Recommended Posts

Signed up a week or 2 ago to discuss the numerous events surrounding both our teams, us nipping in for Robinho , SWP and the game. Didnt want to leave you lot (until we play again) without saying well done.

Chelsea were excellent today. Certainly the best I have seen you play for a long time. Your passing was crisp, but it was the movement off the ball, particularly in midfield, that really stood out.

It was a decent game of football. I thought it was quite even first half, with us (City) playing pretty well. 2nd half Chelsea were the better side by quite a margin, tho we actually had more chances in the 2nd half than we did in the 1st. Ball, Ireland and SWP should have scored and Sturridge went close. Infact now that I think of it, you had more chances in the 1st half than the 2nd. I remember 1 very close headed effort of yours in the 2nd, tho of course you scored 2 aswell.

I was impressed with Lampard. I made an effort of watching him quite a bit, esp in the 2nd half (as I was sat in the the half Chelsea were attacking). He sneaks into such dangerous positions I nearly lost my voice from shouting at our players to mark him! . I dunno what it is that makes him such a special player for CHelsea, but an ordinary player for England, but I suppose you lot dont care too much - I wouldnt.

I was pleased with Robinho. 3 games in a week and a last minute flight over here to play, but still looked class and always dangerous ( running on adrenaline no doubt). Lovin his goal. The roof nearly exploded lol. I have no hesitation in saying he will be a major success in the prem. City legend in the waiting.

The other debutant, Zabaleta was pretty poor TBH, tho it was his first game. He'll need time to adjust.

Thought the ref was crap today - for both teams. I thought the red card was correct - tho I have only seen it once, at the game ..... but I thought you had a shout for a pen when Anelka went down from what looked like a push from Richards.

Yea, so, anyway, well done. Thought you were excellent today and I cant see any reason why you shouldnt win the league. Utd may have more striking options, but the rest of your team looks so powerful, and there is no better striker in the Prem than an on form Drogba. Think we missed Petrov and Johnson today, but thats no excuse. You are a better team than us at the moment. Good luck for the season. Hope you win the Prem.

Thanks dude.

I was really pleased to see SWP play so well for you today; I thought he was your best player, looked very threatening and created a few chances, and got back well too.

For what it's worth, I think in time you'll become a formidable force, luckily for us we didn't see too many signs of that today, but you do already have a good squad and things will only get better for you lot.

Good luck with the rest of the season too, hopefully you can knock Liverpool off that 4th place spot :)

Credit where credit is due and you certainly deserve it for coming here after a defeat and giving your view.

I thought it a hugely exciting game to watch; plenty of attacking football and some really brilliant individual performances from both sides.

I will be supporting you lot against any other of the big four, so best of luck to you.

I hope my compatriots Petrov and Bojinov give you many happy moments ! :)

Always nice to share thoughts with opposition fans who aren't completely deluded so your presence here is most welcome and respected.

I only got to see 2nd half and i thought we were superb , we looked comfortable on the ball, confident and looked dangerous. J.T's sending off was a disgraceful decision, even the city players must have questioned that , Anelka clearly pushed by Richards but no penalty . Bemused.

Great performance and lets have some more next week.

Regarding City, i've always been a Mark Hughes fan , as a player he was world class and i hope he's given time to develop city into Manchesters best team.
