Well Chelsea played it exactly as they should have and they should have won this game 2-0. But, that’s what happens when you don’t score the second goal and have to worry about the away goal. It happened to Man U against Porto to launch Mourinho’s career and it happened again today.
Messi and company were choked just as I said they would be. One real shot on goal and they scored in injury time. Doesn’t get closer than that. Chelsea deserved this win. They should have had two penalties. But it was a questionable red card for Abidal. What’s with these referees? They don’t seem to talk things over with their linesmen for very long before handing out red cards. It’s ridiculous.
Anyway, now it’s Man U vs Barca in the final. Messi and Henry. Rooney and Ronaldo. Barca without both wing backs and Marquez, but with Henry probably back. Man U without Fletcher. Should be awesome. More awesome – I will be at the final!
