Chelsea v Liverpool. Only in England!
OK, so explain that if you can! Tonight should have been a non event, Chelsea were as good as through to the semi final and Liverpool, without Gerrard, surely had to focus on hunting down the Mancs in the Prem. And what happens? Two teams packed with experienced players went out and played like a bunch of kids on a Sunday afternoon. You could explain it if this was a game between two teams of Brits, but there were only 3 Englishmen on the pitch! So why, why?
All credit to both clubs. I have posted why I hate Liverpool FC and nothing will change that, but tonight they went to Chelsea and went one better than the mighty Bolton Wanderers managed on Saturday. Four goals at the Bridge! What a shame for the Scousers that Chelsea scored four of their own in reply! But what a joy for the neutral! 4-4 on the night and 7-5 on aggregate, that doesn't happen outside of Roy of the Rovers comic strips! Even my son, who has taken Aldershot to the Prem on his Playstation 3, was calling the game "stupid"!
Mad, crazy, breathtaking, hilarious - you name it. And what a great goal from Lampard to nail the result for Chelsea! Come on you Hammers, put jealousy to one side and applaud both teams for a great game of headless football!
