1-0 Hernandez 43'
1-1 Drogba 77'
2-1 Ji-Sung Park 77'
Good result for Manchester United. Chelsea on the other hand never looked dangerous until Drogba's goal. IMO It's time to bench that 50million pound dead weight, at least until next season.
I felt sorry for Torres. he is totally out of shape and shows no joy out there. And I wonder: Why didn`t Ancelotti start with Drogba?
Maybe its in his contract:)
I wish I knew the answer to that question. I thought after the league game Ancelotti had realized that it would be better to start with Torres to come off the bench. The moment I found out that Torres was starting and Drogba was benched I feared for Chelsea.
It gets even worse when you think Rio was one legged all game. What a legend! In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
Nothing to be sorry about. He leaves Liverpool because he wants to win titles... Then he chooses Chelsea??? Stupid choice - no brain no sorry.
if roman abramovich tells you to buy torres for million and you bench him you'll get sacked.. look what happened with mourinho and shevcenko.. he should always start with drogba and anelka but i dont think he as a choice at the moment
he was better at Liverpool and now Caroll is stealing the lime light all over Anfield like Torres was never there! Drogba is obviously the better choice but damn...Torres really needs to up his game to keep up in top teams!
The owner have to let the manager do his job, by let him do what is right, I guess Ancelotti was force to start Torres by Roman
rooney, park, giggs were amazing! no ones complaining about rooneys huge contract now are they.
And van der Saar as a left back :P
it's like nothing stopping him! keep up the good work Rooney!
Yeah they really didnt create any clearcut chances apart from the Drogba goal. The Defence was brilliant
rio and vidic are the best cb partnership in the world i'd say.. can't realy think of anyone else that as consistent
Thank you Ancelotti for leaving Drogba on the bench in the first half, who knows what the scores would have been if he started.
Hey, I just heard that Abrahimovic told Ancelotti to start with Torres, one of the Fox presenters got the info from somewhere. He said Ancelotti was set on playin drogba, anelka and malouda in the front.
That is not good!
If thats true then why didn't he start Drogba instead of Anelka. Anelka is useless in the Champions League
I hope it is not true! Abrahimovic has nothing to do about who`s playing! I don`t think Ancelotti will be there next season, and maybe he isn`t the right man for Chelsea eather?
@cybersnake.. anelka's chelseas top scorer in the champions league.. what are you on about ?
Really? I didnt know that... But my point is Drogba should have started. Oh well.
Devilish! In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
United controlled most of the match today. Thanks to Park for his important goal right after Drogbas goal, thanks to Ancelotti playing (and buying) with Torres, thanks to Sir Alex who is the best manager ever, and thanks to all our players who are good today! Glory glory Man United!
Chelsea were awful in both games better team progressed
I think it's time to rebuild Chelsea. It's time to start phasing out the old stalwarts and get replacements.
The difference between United and Chelsea is that United has a culture. Sir Ferguson buys as well, but he BUILDS a team. Chelsea just buy and prays mr. Russia for more $ when they fail to win. To build takes time. Chelsea buys and thats short term.
I agree Man City should pay attention
Come on Chelsea. You cant buy history!!!!
drogba was great when he came on, just imagine if he'd started. but everyone knows that torres was a Abramovich buy so thats takes a lot of pressure off ancelotti. even so, if i was chelsea fan i'd be pissed.
I'm sure ancelotti will be blamed for it anyway
Literally just came back from the DHSMV minutes ago to get my Florida driver's license (now I know why everyone hates them so bloddy much). Just watching the Barca match on FSC as I type this. Sounds like the better team won this one.
Yeah, chelsea were completely outdone by united, good match, though. Congrats on your license :)
Chelsea were completely stifled. Dont think Torres did anything right the entire time he was on. Giggs, Nani, Chicarito, Rooney and Carrick were sublime
Ancelotti is one of world's best coaches he won the Cl few times won other cups he has a great record even Mourinho could not win it is Abramovic puuting too much pressure on the staff and player I'm not sure but there is something about Chelsea they just can't win it
No London team ever has. It's all about us up north! In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
It's like Abra is teaching Ancelotti about how to manage football team. The only thing he shud care about is the UEFA's FFP.. THAT'S IT!
he won 2 CL CUP as a player and as a Manager both at Ac Milan
Ancelotti time at chelsea has to be coming to an end now, and torres......what a waste of money i say sell torres while hes worth something or at least let him go on loan and get sturrage back, hes actually doing pretty well
Ancelotti is a good manager, but he doesn`t get result in Chelsea, maybe he belongs in Italy/Spain better than EPL? He definite did a big mistake starting with Torres!
I think his first problem is making the wrong subs, I say why sub Anelka and Bring Kalou is like 9 men not 10. and 2. he doesn't used youngster as those are the player who willing to give it their all to impress their manager
I guess Abra has some of the guilt for buying Torres... Anyway I am disapointed over the results this season. We should have done better.
I think torres will return as a scoring machine next season. He has the potential to be as good as he wants.
Ancelotti showed us that chelsea can at the start of the season. He can take them back, To early to fire him.
Let's see how tomorrow's game goes, maybe United could get an easier opponents(as comp. to the other side).
