Shocking! It's Liverpool v Chelsea

Noooooooooo. It can't be. Oh, it is. It's Scum v Chelski part 3!

It had to be didn't it? Chelsea booked its place in the Champions League semifinals with a fugly 2-0 result over Fenerbahce at Stamford Bridge. Those scousers emerged victorious from a classic with the Arsenal, 5-3 on aggregate.

The Blues were hardly convincing, dominant early -- with a Ballack header giving us the lead -- but appaling for large periods until Essien picked out Lampard for the much-needed, and much-appreciated, second. Seriously, this was about as pleasurable to watch as a Liverpool-Chelsea match (damn).

Thank heavens for Hilarious, who bailed us out with a pair of spectacular saves moments apart midway through the second half to preserve our 1-0 lead at the time. Hilario, on for the injured Carloooo, proved to be man of the match for me. Is there a better third-choice keeper in the world?

Also, thanks to Michael Essien, who was superb before erasing it all in true idiotic fashion by picking up a yellow card late in the match for slamming the ball onto the ground. That now rules him out of the first leg against Liverpool; thanks guy!

So, any predictions for the semis?
