It wasnt an unfamiliar sight..
today at chijmes around 9++ i saw the blues winning the championship rite again..
to me..the championship had already been won weeks ago..even before the start of the season..i knew they were going to be champions..today was only the medal and trophy presentation..that is why i lack of emotion as they made a game out of their own will with the reds of manchester being their latest victim..
three zero was the scoreline and it looks like a one sided match...
no..it wasnt one sided..hard challenge from manchester who nearly scored when wayne rooney whizzed pass the so called water-tight defence of chelsea..
he was already one on one with the goalkeeper..but he missed..
that was the only good chance for manchester..
chelsea kept their heads and went on..absorbing every single one of manchester's attack..
maybe manchester didnt think for a split second that what they are doing is kamikaze..even opening the doors for a heavier defeat??look at liverpool and you'll understand..why is liverpool is always so effective against chelsea??...they didnt rush in their attacks..they wasnt desperate to win..and they didnt have show offs like cristiano ronaldo waggling his feet on a few defenders then lose the defenders afterwards..no..maybe they didnt realize that defence is our speciality and that our midfield are faster than their own attack??maybe..
what liverpool did was to play with a flow..technical approach yet effective in real life..its no use having the most skilled players on earth..those can only bring you so far..a good team must be accompanied with good teamwork..and that i didnt see it in manchester..
they lost their heads after the first goal..it shuldnt have happened and they knew it well enough..
but i aint saying chelsea played perfect either..
this chelsea side that you're witnessing in ur own tv sets,making news about their spending spree in the transfer market,are the most boring side i had ever seen..
give me zola anytime..and i rather him than all the stars in chelsea..
that is why winning the league isnt such a big deal..we know we will win..we know no one could touch us and it was proven..since mourinho arrived chelsea had NEVER lost at home..never..
we lead on top thruout the season and i couldnt admit less to have been biting my nails when the lead of 18 points were reduced to just nine within a few matches..
i was feeling a lil pessimistic then about their ability to retain the title..my frens kept reminding me that manchester could do watever they did to arsenal to chelsea..but i kept on insisting that chelsea werent any arsenal side..but i knew if the bad patch goes on i have to just have to believe just like they did..
but it didnt..the blues came back to life..
and the climax was today..when three goals shook stamford bridge,just enough to bring the championship trophy right back to the hands of captain john terry..
william gallas scored a glancing header,much credited to john terry..joe cole scored a brilliant individual masterpiece..then ricardo cavalho scored a screamer and it look as if he had been doing it all life long..
it was just enough..just enough..
it is no doubt chelsea will be hated more to have retain the title..the media hates us..and that made the people hate us too..people have this belief that we actually bought the championship..that money alone have helped chelsea reached this far..
well i totally disagree..
you have to take notice the work the players produce on the pitch itself..if they were all about money then why didnt they just shake their legs,play a mediocre match and still get their salary??its more than money i tell you..
that is why it is shame that people hate chelsea..they didnt see the brilliant things the club have in store..
furthermore..what chelsea have spent so far..is much lesser than what manchester had spent themselves since the formation of the premiership..nobody realise this..just becoz the money spent by chelsea was in a shorter period of time ppl start shouting 'cheat' among themsleves..
oh u silly people stop being so naive..
start analysing things and stop lying to urself by jumping to ur own conclusion..without hard rock evidence..
money can only help you so far..the rest is all hard work..
and that was proven..today..
the scoreline actually flatter chelsea a little but it didnt matter..the championship is ours..bring on the next season..
But next season will be yet another surprise..with the arrival of michael ballack..it would be more than what you're watching now..
so watch out..
it doesnt matter to me if people cry out saying we have an oil barrel for support..this is just an excuse to go against the club after there is nothing else to talk about..people dont wait for chelsea to excel..all they do is to wait till they make a mistake..then they will start laughing silently in their hearts..
maybe you guys shud stop ur useless rantings and start leaving the club alone..then im very sure the club will prove its worth..
but whatever happens..its another twelve months the trophy will spent its time in the less than glittering trophy cabinet in stamford bridge..
but for now..
u all just have to bent down to the reign of the blues..
Chelsea : 2005 - 2006 Champions..
