Well, that was different to their last meeting... Expect Abramovich to make a huge last minute bid for him today. ;)
I expect quite a few bids to be made for him, considering its the last day and his recent performances (2 hat tricks in 2 games!!)
Chelsea's defense was piss poor on this occasion, and Atletico's attack was fantastic. It's apparent how bad terry was needed. Luiz is too inconsistent, I swear I go through a mini heart attack every time he goes for a tackle. Atletico played a great game and got a well deserved win. Falcao is sooo good!
Ouch! Attacking style just does not suit Chelsea atm. They should have parked the bus when the game started.
we should applaud chelsea for wanting to play a more entertaining style of football, it wont always work but arsenal fans no that all to well http://www.dailymail.co.uk/... and with the recent exodus of your best players.....
Hey man, I didn't mean to offend anyone. What I meant was, Chelsea made a mistake of experimenting in an important match. The new players need time to gel. They won't just click and start playing attractive football. Until that happens, why not play the style most suitable for the team? It's the same reason why we got thrashed by United. Wenger got too optimistic and fielded many young inexperienced players.
okay, fair enough, i thought you were just trolling, but i do agree @buddymagoo, 100 mil spent? i would love to see something to back that up
I'll back up what I say. Marko Marin 8million Oscar 32million Eden Hazard 40million Thorgan Hazard undisclosed Cesar Azpilicueta 9million Victor Moses 11.3million =100m http://www.soccernews.com/s...
would love to have 100m our season is going downhill because we were 2m short
5th team in Spain beats the 6th team in England to be expected, although 4-1 is a little embarrassing.
As we clearly saw last year, ranking in the league does not show how they'll perform in Europe. City and United were the best in The EPL, yet city and united played like crap in Europe. Chelsea were 6th in England and they were champions of Europe
Stop it, you're using logic.
Did Chelsea not just spend 100m? Hazard looks great against the poor teams but went missing again today against a decent side. In football you are only as good as your last result.
please stop with that bullsh!t, should we use united's early exist from the champions league and europa league as a metric for how good they are? no you say? because that would be stupid?
And Manchester United on the Champions league got beat by Basel... your point?
Who's talking about United, strange man. Chelsea were playing tonight and you bring up a game from 9 months ago??? Well back in 1953 Chelsea got beat by Wolves 8-1!! You see how crazy this sounds?!
Also, Man Utd got knocked out in the group stages of the Champions League and lost the PL title. They pulled a weak group this year.. Oh wait, they got knocked out in a weak group last year...
Falcao was godlike in that match and chelseas defence was pathetic, i noticed straight away that terry was absent if roman could snatch Falcao or even hulk in the last minute i would feel reassured....
Falcao is sooo good but i must confess everytime i see him, since he played at Rver Plate and Porto i have grown a huge dislike for him. Idk why theres just something about him thats disgustes me. I know this isnt right for me to say but i cant help feel this way. Its awkward really. Nevertheless, he really good and btw Chelseas defense was sooooooo bad. David Luiz needed to go away. He was awful.
Yet again Spanish sides have destroyed an English side in a european competition. Chelsea might have finished 6th but we know thats only because of Villas Boas. If Di Matteo was in charge for the whole season. Chelsea would have finished 2nd in epl. Chelsea will be very successful in the epl with their new style of play but will suffer in the champions league. Wait and see, without Drogba, any Spanish team will beat Chelsea in Champions league including Malaga.
No no, no. Drogba is not a magician, hes great but tooo overrated. He hardly scored any goals in the league last year. Yes he was goood in champions but come on not the game changer you guys make him out to be.
Are you kidding me.........Drogba is basically a tank who moves like a Ferrari. This is why Barca lost to Chelsea....... Great Defending (equivalent to packing a jumbo jet), a lot of luck and Drogba as a Target man. A defenders nightmare is a pacy forward with good movement and who is good on the ball but Drogba has Herculean strength that gives him an extra edge even against the top defenders like Puyol, Vidic, Pepe, Pique, Ramos,Koscielny,Terry etc
Great performance by Falcao, and all of Atletico Madrid, liga teams are much better than what some people like to think.
Stupid Chelsea got put in their place. I guess we can feel comfort that their fluky CL run last year want happen this year.
Falcao made Chelsea's defence look like a bunch of school girls.. The pace of Athletico was too hot to handle. You can see how well they gel together as a team.. they also beat Bilboa 4-0 earlier that week. Chelsea are still working their ish out, and have a lot of work to do... BelieveinGhosts.. u talk so much ludicrous bs on here.. 'Chelsea would have finished 2nd in epl' - ignorant comment, u have no idea.. Oscar should be starting now in my opinion.
Your the one who talks out of your ass. Everyone who is reasonable knows that if Villas Boas was left in charge, Chelsea would have been knocked out by Napoli and would have struggled to finish in the Top 10 of the epl.
Run along with ur 'this would have happened' dribble.. and stop sounding like an utter fanboy. if u were reasonable, u'd know anything can happen in football.. and ur approach of saying this n that would happen indefinitely, shows ur ignorance. for the record i dislike chelsea..
2nd team in Madrid (5th in Spain) just destroyed the Chelsea, Champions of Europe! :D Did Chelsea forget their big blue bus?! Damn Chelsea! Real Madrid 4 - 1 Atlético Madrid 26/11/2011. Atlético Madrid 1 - 4 Real Madrid 11/4/2012. Chelsea's team (Stating XI + 3 Subs) cost them £227.7 million with only Bertrand from their academy. Atlético Madrid's team (Stating XI + 3 Subs) cost them £95.6 million with Adrian and Rodriguez free and Jorge Koke from their youth system. £132.1 million difference. I do love Spanish teams ripping the crap out of English teams. Another trophy added in the Spanish favour, seems to happen every year!
BPL- last 8 seasons= 3 teams won the Champions League with 8 finalists. La Liga- last 8 seasons= Only one team won it 3 times. Wow, your league is very competitive! Yes, currently La Liga has 2 of the best teams in the world but your other teams failed to make an impression at Europe, where it matters the most. Back in 2008, when Premier League was the most dominant, only English teams were good enough to beat another English team.
I think ur being a bit harsh to b honest.. The money Chelsea have spent would often justify the result.. but the players are brand new and need time to gel.. not even mentioning they have a new system. Athletico looked like a team that had been playin together forever.. best countering i've seen for a while.. I wouldn't talk about history and the European cup if i were u, it wouldn't be in ur favour
And these soulless fuckers won cl last year...
