So we drew, Chelsea lost the title in our backyard, but was it me or did Jose wave goodbye to the fans knowing he may be leaving?
So the Chavs got to one more final than we did, they finished a place lower than last year and spent an awful lot of money winning the carling cup.
Lampard said before the Liverpool game, to become a great player you must win the champions league and that's what he wanted to be remembered for.
Sorry Frank, maybe next year.
I have received a lot of stick this season from my friendly chavs and spuds, the taunts of not winning anything for 2 years seems to be their favourite, how the spuddies can taunt me with that is beyond me when what have they done lately. And how the chavs can talk when 2 years ago then did the league and carling cup, last season only the league and this year now just the carling cup.. so who is in decline now?
We have had a season of transition, injuries and off the field occurrences that have not helped, the moving to a new home taking longer to adjust but I am sure the board will back Wenger in the summer with transfers and next season start with the injured players back and fresh, a year of experience under the kids belts and with the additions of a couple of new faces.
It won't be a 2 horse race next season, more of a four.
Watching the game today I felt that this Chelsea team have made the same mistakes the likes of Arsenal and United have made in previous years. They have bought older players who will now need replacing. Drogba, Carvalho, Makele, Ballack, Shevenko.. They will need to rebuild and this may stop them gelling a team to win something next season. We had it 2 years ago, Wiltord, Pires, Vieira, Bergkamp, Edu.. so now we are ready, i think Chelsea will find out that buying for the now and not the future comes at a cost.
Congrats to united, condolences to the chavs.. see you next year!
