CHELSEA 2-1 Villa: Lambert Left Livid

So, 2 games in and the sight of Jose Mourinho throwing his arms up in the air at the officials was like he’d never been away. Of course, these were purely distraction techniques – diverting their attention away from the fact that we really should have conceded a penalty. But then considering Ivanovic was fortunate to have still been on the pitch to bag our winner, the boss’ antics may have served their purpose. Personally, I loved the way we dug in and held on for a win that wasn’t entirely Barca-esque, considering we had all the fighting spirit of a punch-drunk shadow boxer last season, but here’s a few other opinions:

  1. Chelsea cheers.
    continue making us happy by win games.

  2. I agree with you — last year we would have lost that — as for the penalty don’t believe the script the media are dying to write — what a hand up means varies according to media sympathy for the team involved and for Chels they have none — it was a foul on JT to start with and his hand was up because they jumped and the ball hit it — as for Ivan well just immediately prior to when he kicked benteke the big B gave him an almighty elbow across the face much like the one Ivan got a yellow for.
    we’re a bit tired that’s the main problem. But VIlla were good too and they may give Pool a hiding this w/end
