We can all laugh about it now that it's over. And we've got the three points.
A sometimes exhilarating, mostly flaccid 2-0 win for the Chels over I'OM at the Bridge on Wednesday. So, that's two Champions League group games - two wins.
It wasn't exactly HD viewing. More like 480i. The second half, in particular, was strange in the sense of frustration I felt in the nonchalance of our performance. We never felt like conceding, yet the lack of intensity kind of irked me. Lazy river casualness. And, to think, we could've added at least two - perhaps three - goals over the final 45.
Nevertheless, excellent result. One easily forgets the previous week (consecutive defeats). Added bonus: Plenty left in the tank for that massive fixture on the weekend. Righteous.
On to man of the match. Plenty of candidates, most stemming from a superlative first half. Let me know, people. Keep that Blue Flag flying high.
