Vexed in the City.

It was the second-to-last London derby of the 2010-2011 season today (last involving Chelsea)! Meetings across the capital for Chelsea have certainly not been low on incidents this season, from David Luiz’s boss debut that was tarnished by his conceding a last minute penalty at Craven Cottage (that was thankfully saved), to the capital punishment suffered at the Emirates in the 3-1 humiliation by Arsenal. In this corresponding fixture at White Hart Lane last December alone, it was an end-to-end match that either side could have won, but Drogba missed the chance to when he fluffed a penalty at the very end of the match. For a good majority of 2011, Chelsea were thereabouts Spurs and sometimes even behind them in the league, and I’d actually been fretting, and Torres loathers had been rubbing their hands together at the prospect of us finishing behind them in the league and, god forbid, staring at the pit of no Champions League football next year. But, going into this game, Chelsea had come into a bit of form – so much so that Torres himself scores last week – and were sitting pretty in second with a slim, slim chance of retaining the title. Spurs pretty much needed to win to keep their chances of playing CL football next season alive. Something had to give, and boy oh boy, did shit go down today.

A suggestion and a response about the Busquets/Marcelo incident!

I decided to go beyond UEFA and try media outlets. I wrote goal.com, Guillem Ballague, sky sports, Grant Wahl. I wrote UEFA too, but you can imagine I don't have much faith in them. I just wanted to suggest that other people reach out directly to any media outlets you can think of.

I will post the response, I recieved, after the cut. I know goal.com gives crap stories, but the fact is they're really popular and they have a voice. Anyway, that is my suggestion, beyond UEFA. I didn't expect such an immediate response and I didn't expect them to take it seriously. So, I'm encouraged that at least we can be heard!
