A Right Results Says Man City 1-4 Chelsea

MANCHESTER CITY v CHELSEA - Business as usual

Saturday 13 September 2008

It was billed as the Clash of the Cash or War of the Wads, but it was business as usual as in-form Chelsea eased to victory at Manchester City. And it could have been worse for the new rich kids on the Premier League block as the visitors were denied a valid penalty when Micah Richards pushed Nicolas Anelka.

The Right Result is a 4-1 win to Chelsea.

"Ballocks! If that stupid system watched the game the right result would of been City 1 - 1 Chelsea! Well played City." So which two Chelsea goals should of been disallowed then?

No Im not talking about goals; Im saying from the performance of play from both sides, neither of them should have lost! So the real result should have been a draw!

Statistics often mean very little. I thought 1-2 would have been a fairer result. And though Chelsea deserved to win on the day, the City performance showed we are getting very close to a top 4 standard. I say this because three of our players were obviously jet-lagged and two of them had only one training session before the game. I say that because Martin Petrov, arguably our best player last season, was injured and we missed his regular supply of top crosses from the left. I say that because our young midfield dynamo Michael Johnson also missed the game because of injury. You may say this is a list of excuses... But I think when we meet Chelsea later in the year we will take points from them.

What no mention of the goal scoring chance by Jo when through and synically fouled by Terry.

So the blatent penalty push by Richards on Anelka....clear goal scoring chance..red card then Terry..inside the center circle with 1 covering defender....how you can say goal scoring opportunity is beyond me.(even jokingly!!)..plus Bosingwa would have made up ground easily..he's faster than SWP...

You could argue if all our shots were on Target we could have won 10-9 it wasn't the result was 3-1 Chelsea thats what goes into the history books, this is history, lets move on. Have a great season Chelsea, we will see you later at your place, hopefully to give you a better game.

What is this imaginary penalty claim with Anelka?

Should have been a pen though, just as it was never a pen (outside the box) when you beat us 2 or 3 seasons ago, our only league defeat that campaign annoyingly!

''1-1''! LOL..1-4 is ok..the 6-0 last season was better but that was at home, so we'll have to wait for the next 6-0 until city come to the bridge..maybe we can even win 7-0 against them..shouldn't be too difficult..
