Credit To Chelsea's Resolve

Credit To Chelsea's Resolve

Despite being very happy at helping halt the Chelsea steam train, you can't help but respect their resolve.

It's no secret that I despise Chelsea, I hate what they stand for, I hate how they act, I hate the arrogance of some of their fans, but the boys got fight.

I'm actually fuming at our inability to finish off the Chavs, finishing our home season as it began, with a 1-1 draw, but as a football fan, I can show nothing but admiration (absolutely shocking challenge on Denilson aside) for the determination Chelsea showed in the second half.

I can't help feeling if our boys had shown a bit more of that fighting spirit this season this game may have had a bit more bearing for us aswell as Chelsea & Man Utd.

So while I'm laughing inside, I've also got a little more respect for them this afternoon than what I had this morning.

However, you better make the most of it Chelsea supporters, because tomorrow I'll be back to take the piss.

yeah rocky, that article summed up exactly what I wanted to post. I still think we should have won it though, we created a lot of chances (again) but we couldnt finish it off. I love Adebayor but he needs to learn to finish more of his chances.

Such a dissappointing result in the end. Feels like a loss to me!

Arsenal players showed their inexperience in the second half, gave Chelsea too much space. Question, Why don't your players shoot the ball when they are in a good position? Why do they try to make the killer pass when a shot would be a better option? Very frustrating.

Good article Rocky... much as I despise some aspects of their team (especially Terry's big effin mouth) it's hard not to respect their resolve after they played it out with 10 men. So well done to them, and well done ManU in winning the title. Finally though, the taste that remains in my mouth (like ptv) is a bit like we lost, and reflects good chunks of our season. I will always love the Arsenal though!
