We Ain't Got No His-Toh-Ree.



I wrote a "few" words for my blog on how delighted I was with Chelsea's win on Saturday, thought I'd share it here too! It's long though :p

On Saturday night, in Bavaria, Chelsea Football Club finally got their hands on the thing that has eluded them for so long: the Champions League trophy.
