So, despite Chels looking bright, it was Spurs who opened the scoring, Sandro scoring an absolute beaut. It skimmed Modric's head and past Cech's fingertips into the net. Unstoppable.
Then Lampard's "goal" just before the end of half time. I'll be the first to admit that it was highly, highly dubious.
Spurs protesting it
The BBC wrote "Replays of Chelsea's controversial first goal proved inconclusive" sauce
Flawless celebration though
a few obligatory beef pikchurzzz
The beginning of the second half. tbh I made a face not dissimilar to Carlo's eyebrow-up thing when I saw both Torres and Drogba starting today. He blates got carried away with that ONE goal Torres scord, trololol. I would have 4-3-3-d it with Kalou starting, but that's just me. It almost freaking cost us, Spurs were good today.
Ivanovic, like he has a habit of doing, got booked
And then, controversy volume 2, Chelsea's winner:
Replays from Sky showed Kalou was offside
Look how happy Ash looks!!! ^___~
Flawless team, and can I just say, Kalou dissers to the mofo'ing left!!!! I've always been a mega cheerleader of him, love the dude, even when he frustrates (as he did when he squandered multiple chances in the game at WHL last December). But he was certainly in the right place at the right time today!! This is his first season at Chelsea that he's scored 10 goals in the premier league as well!!!! Can we all glomp this precious Ivorian bb?!?!? THAT'S WHY WE ALL LOVE SALOMON KALOU.
Frank Lampard and John Terry are all in~~~
(if you like your bromances, Jamie Redknapp & Scotty Parker is a new one!! They were both together at Chelsea vs Man United in the CL and they were sitting together today! btw Jamie Redknapp's middle name is Frank. Frank Lampard's middle name is James. #BungyExclusive ;) )
Captain fantastic's 500th game in charge!! So good that I think he deserves a smooch from Frankie Sandfo- no? oh, ok then. :p
Our gaffer's reaction to the Salomon Kalou goal!!!!
Moar Chelsea preciousness:-
The ref was wank but he was shite to Chelsea too; there were many fouls against us that weren't given and we had a legit penalty shout. Yes it was harsh on Spurs but I refuse to reprimand Lampard and Kalou - two of my favourite Chelseabungs for simply 'aving a go, as Harry himself might say.
All in all, I'm v. happy! Plus, regardless of whether or not West Ham go down, QPR got promoted today, so we'll still have at least 8 London derbies next season, four of those West London ones! GET IN.
Love this team so hard. It wasn't our best performance of the season by any means, but I LOVE beating Spurs and even though we were bloody fortituious today, I'll take that luck, thanks. That being said, part of me does sympathise with Spurs because Barcagate 09 (which, btw, The Guardian were rating matches out of 5 on the Barce-ref-pandering-ness and that game got 4/5 -- I doubt they could genuinely give a 5/5 at the risk of appearing slanted), Lampard's goal that DID cross the line and wasn't given and the like have left me more than knowing how much it fucking hurts when big decisions in big games go against you
I think the league is still, realistically, a bit far fetched (Arsenal would have to win tomorrow and we'd have to beat United at Old Trafford, don't see both/either of those happening tbqh) but some of her playing today, when we were a goal down and after the re-start, for example, made me so happy to see. Our mid-season dip was so woeful, but it's lush to go out on a bang!
