|DEFINING MOMENTS OF THE GAME (1): GOUFFRAN HITS THE BAR!|
1st half: "Sharp, Positive, Creative, Brilliant!" <(Match of the Day pundit Danny Murphy's verdict!)
This waz certainly a far more encouragin' performance than in the last few weeks and we were the better side durin' the forst half of this game and 'amazingly' the 5 players who were deemed 'injured' for the Lestaa debacle, were aall passed 'fit' for this game!???
Az orly az the forst minute Remy Cabella 'juggled' hiz way through the home defence, anly to see hiz shot gan just wide!
|THE TOON ATTACK THE HARDING STAND (1st half)|
(View from row 1 upper tier---Shed corner)
A Gouffran free kick waz then parried away by Cech in the Chelski goal and then Cabella again went close but hiz effort waz punched away by Cech!
'The Sissoko Kid' then had a shot which hit the corner of the upright and bar and we were well on top at this stage!
And then of course 'disaster struck', when, az Tim Krul waz lookin' in the opposite direction?, (see foto below!) Chelski took a quick corner and with him oot of position, Oscar had the simple task of side footin' the baall into the net to give the OAPs a 1-0 lead just before the break!
|DEFINING MOMENTS OF THE GAME (2): |
TIM KRUL LOOKS THE OTHAA WAY AZ CHELSKI TAKE A QUICK CORNER!?
2nd half: "And now for something completely different!" <(Monty Python's verdict!---perhaps?)
The 2nd half waz 'a different kettle of fish' and we hardly ventured into the Chelski half az we attacked 'The Shed', where the 2,200 Toon fans were huddled in the corner section!
The home side who started poundin' wor goal from the restart, got the breakthrough to seal the game when Diego Costa slid the baall into the corner of the net from inside the box!
|CABELLA SENDS IN A RARE TOON CORNER @ THE SHED END|
We did have a couple of attacks after this but it waz now a case of keepin' the score doon and the game ended in wor 5th away defeat in a row!---We are now just 8 points above the safety net!
