While a 2-0 victory over Arsenal felt like business as usual for Chelsea (despite the abysmal start to the campaign), Saturday's match felt more than a bit unnatural with Petr Cech in goal for the visitors. I'm sure it felt strange for Cech, as well, though the Chelsea legend had nothing but good things to say about the Chelsea support following his return to Stamford Bridge.
I'm glad Big Pete enjoyed the reception given to him by Chelsea supporters, and I'm equally thrilled that he came away disappointed with the result. Here's hoping that this disappointment becomes the norm, and that Jose Mourinho continues his dominance over Arsene Wenger for as long as the Portuguese tactician remains with the Blues.
Thanks again for 11 great seasons, Petr, and I'm sorry that you wound up stuck at Arsenal.
