So its another match that we've won when I'm wearing the 10-11 home kit,with my name and #8 on it.In fact we haven't lost when I've worn the kit.Wanna take a look at the numerous less than obvious matches when something too odd as a coincidence happened?
1.Chelsea vs. WBA (20 Aug 2011)
We were behind courtesy a very Alex(remember him,his FKs especially) slip leading to a Shane Long goal.Meanwhile far away in Delhi,India in unrelated circumstamces,mom wanted to wash the shirt I was wearing and gave me THE kit in return.This happened in the HT break.
What Conspired---Anelka (53rd) and FloMo(83rd) scored to lead us to our first competetive victory in the AVB era.
2.Newcastle vs. Chelsea & Chelsea vs. Manchester City & Chelsea vs. Valencia(1st week of Dec 2011)
The most awesome week of our AVB era,I wore the jersey unwashed,bearing the stink during the run,best exhibited by the City game,when I took the jersey out of the washing machine when we went a goal down.
What Conspired---3 wins out of 3 must win games
3.Chelsea vs. Manchester United(5 Feb 2012)
A quickfire 3-0 lead and I happened to spill some Paneer Gravy on my jersey.Changed shirts and conceded 3.
What Conspired---A dissapointing 3-3 draw from a winnable situation.
4.Aston Villa vs. Chelsea(31st March 2012)I had a class that made me miss the first 60 mins,when I returned we were 2-0 up.In my ignorance I put on the 09-10 kit and we shipped in 2 goals,realised the mistake,put on THE kit and we scored 2.
5Chelsea vs. Benfica(5 April 2012)
I watched the first 85mins in some random shirt,but when Javi Garcia scored,I got nervous just like many of you and cursed myself for not wearing the 10-11 kit,Mind you,it was 2 am midnight and I had swapped bedroom with my parents so that I watch the match and they sleep well,so my wardrobe was in the room my parents were sleeping with a screechy lock in the entrance and the wardrobe.I took the risk and went in and came out with the jersey.As soon as I wore it I had a rush of relief that we would see this game through,and Meireles confirmed a Semis berth.
I'm sure similar things would have happened to several of you and would like to hear about them.
PS - NO PART OF THE ABOVE INCIDENTS ARE FICTITIOUS.
