Chelsea 1 Atlético Madrid 4
When Chelsea went down 0-3 at halftime on a Falcao hat-trick, I donned my rally-cap for the 2nd half hoping for the best, but realizing that Chelsea just couldn’t be arsed (with a few exceptions) to give it their best. And I just couldn’t be arsed to pretty up the pictures, so what you see is what you get. Just like the UEFA Super Cup match which Atlético deservedly won. Falcao and his supporting cast were magnificent and passionate, and Chelsea played like they were down to 9 men. A bloody horrible match. Chelsea were run out of the gym. And as for me, there was and is not enough RHINELANDER Beer to make this match go away.
But I’m off to the boozer all the same to put this out of my mind. Fock all. The Blue Flag can fly at half mast for awhile.
Tomorrow, Norwich plays Spurs at White Hart Lane. Win or lose, my Canaries at least do not betray my expectations by the passion with which they play. So on the ball City!! Cue some soothing music.
