Us Chelsea fans have become thick skinned when it comes to dealing with the impact of Champions League exits, so for me in particular Wednesday night didn't pull at the emotions too much. After all, only one stonewall penalty appeal this time. In fact the only thing that did make my blood boil, although I should be used to it by now, was being surrounded my 'mancs' in a pub in London. It seems the chant really is true. U-N-I.. T-E-D.. United fans are from Surrey.
What else is there to talk about? Oh yeah, Torres. In hindsight, he shouldn't have started, Drogba should. Hindsight allows a lot of people to jump on the bandwagon, and they often duely oblidge. Not for one minute am i trying to detract away from the fact that he was god awful at Old Trafford, but going into the big match, I'd have started Torres. Drogba is fantastic as an impact sub, and he showed exactly on the night, but as a ST holder that watches Chelsea week in, week out. I'll tell you, the match before last against Wigan, Drogba stunk. His attitude, his performance, everything. Incidentally, it was when Torres (and Benayoun) came on that we looked more potent, and actually scored. Good of MOTD to solely focus on the snippets of Torres chances missed for their analysis.
United were the better team over two legs. Decent second leg performance from The Blues. Left ourselves too much to do from 1st leg.
