Where did Chelsea blow the Premiership?

New, comments

There were a slew of questionable performances -- and results -- from Chelsea this season. Many of these could be seen as reasoning as to why the Blues failed to capture their third Prem crown in four years. Which particular one do you think was the most devastating? Or was it an injury to or lack of form from a certain player that cost us valuable points (Sidwell)? And no, I'm not arguing that Manchester United shouldn't have won the league title. Fergie's boys certainly are deserving champions.

Chelsea 1, Wigan 1 -- April 14 08
What can you say about this match? A drab performance, probably worthy of the final result. Funny enough, Wigan had the edge in possession that night, 52-48. Ultimately, wastefulness in front of goal cost us -- the Blues put 10 shots on goal.

Chelsea 4, Aston Villa 4 -- Dec. 26 07
This was just gar-bage. Boxing Day produced the worst for Chelsea, Gareth Barry converting a 90th-minute penalty to snatch a point at the Bridge. Barry's spot kick arrived just two minutes after Ballack had "presumably" won it for us. This one hurts a little more than the others for me, just on the fact that its a penalty that cost us.

Tottenham 4, Chelsea 4 -- March 19 08
Robbie Keane drove the dagger in here two minutes from full time. One of the most thrilling matches of the season no doubt, one that drove me to throw furniture all over my apartment.

Chelsea 1-1 Everton -- Nov. 11 07
Tim Cahill pops up with the leveler in the 90th. Sound familiar? This in a game where we had 60 percent of the possession and a 10-2 shots on goal advantage.
