Clash of Titans…

November 27, 2006 Leave a comment Go to comments

Hi all,

It was indeed Clash of Titans. Yesterday (i.e. 26Th November), i along wid the millions of others worldwide saw two Premiership Giants ManU & Chelsea, clash against each-other @ Old Trafford. Now ManU was in a bad mood after their loss against Celtic in UEFA Championship Group matches. Ferguson was quoted saying, “We’ll avenge our Championship loss by defeating Chelsea @ home…”. I know tht’s a brave statement to make, but Alex is known to make such statements.

Abt the match:
It was a very well contested match, both the teams played some good football. ManU with backing of their home crowd started off with a bang & took Chelsea completely off guard. Ronaldo spear-headed ManU‘s attack, with his sheer speed he made A Cole life a living Hell. Chelsea managed to break most their attack even though they had some goof-ups in their defense. In the process they also took some shots @ ManU‘s goal. It was ManU who drew the first blood & it was none other than Luis Saha who found the back of the net. Just as he scored the entire stadium burst into a roar, all the ManU fans were shouting, jumping & cheering for their team. Soon it was half time & it looked as if ManU would run away with an easy win.

Second half was a complete different story.They had an early change, Robben was introduced into the attack. Chelsea had fire in their eyes which was missing in the first half (i wonder wht did Jose do in the changing room??). Suddenly one could see ManU on the back-foot, they had majority of their ppl in the defense. Chelsea kept the pressure on ManU and finally they succeeded in scoring. It was a corner kick & the scorer this time was Caralvanho (the Portugal Defender). After the goal the stadium went dead silent, only the away fans were cheering this time around. ManU did try to come back but their attack was killed in the bud itself. Soon its was full-time & the scoreline was ManU 1 – Chelsea 1.

After the match Jose Mourinho was quoted saying, “It’s a fair result, ManU were best in the first half & Chelsea were best in the second half.”

In all the match was a true entertainer. I felt the referee was a jackass coz he gave away a lot of unwanted fouls against Chelsea. It was indeed a high voltage game. Looking forward to see many more games like this…

    Football along wid rock music is alwayz a good combination… πŸ˜€
    I managed to get the best of both the worlds…
    I must admit tht i was really scared @ the start when ManU were on the attack, but Cuddicini did a good job…
