I’ve looked at the finished tables of all groups and we were unlucky to get juve & shakhtar. Check them out – i don’t see any other group we wouldn’t have been in the top 2, even playing exactly as we did in the games we did play.
The 2 silly late goals let in against juve at the bridge, 2-0 to 2-2, were the ones that cost us. No wonder Obi Mikel was dropped last night. 😉
I would rather not play in the europa cup. It is just another distraction. But I will still be travelling to see my team, having a night or two away at any away games. We may even get knocked out next round, so it may not last long. I’ll still be there.
I’d have preferred shakhtar to do a job last night and see go thru’, even if we went out in the last 16. Of course I would. But. alas, 10 points wasn’t enough.
Up the Chels’.
