Cole is leaving in the summer. Shame. I say that in the last 2 weeks he’s more than proved he should’ve started every game at left back instead of Cesar. Why Jose has done that only he knows. Cesar has had a goodseason, but he doesn’t have that attacking side to his game like Ashley has.
We couldn’t score yesterday. We can’t just blame the lack of a striker as we had other chances. On a different day one of those that hit the woodwork or one of those saved slips in. But none did, and the final balls weren’t that good, anyway.
That booing at the end was embarrassing. It sounded like quite a few booed. I wish they’d all fkk off. wnkrs. I could never, ever do that.
We didn’t deserve the league on the strength of performances like yesterday. Picking out VCilla and Sunderland as so obviously ref bias is papering over the cracks of the other games where we just didn’t do enough.
But we haven’t had a too bad season. I’d have taken top 3 and ECL semi if offered at the start of the season. You may recall me just wanting top 4 in Jose’s first season back.
I will add that before the game yesterday my bother was saying how Ancelotti’s football was more attractive, and that we scored some 103 goals that season of the double. I reminded him that it was Eto’o’s goal for Inter at the Bridge that sealed Carlo’#s fate, and that had blatant penalty been awarded for a foul on Kalou at the San Siro then maybe things would have been different with an away goal. But Carlo went after we won the double in 2010.
Let’s see who comes in in the close season. I’m on the fence with Costa. He didn’t impress me in those two games, and it’s easier to score in La Liga. There’s only 3 teams over there. Let’;s also not forget that Costa was out on loan here and everywhere before he had that good season.
Cardiff next week. It will be very lively there. Hopfully we can at least end the season with a win.
Win or lose, up the Blues.
Up the Chels’.
