A great day out at Chelsea, Kim and I stayed at Travellodge Clapham Junction, ideal location for Chelsea and Fulham matches. We walked from the hotel to Earls Court to meet a few friends before the match. It is just a 10-15 minute walk down to the match from Earls Court, we arrived at the ground with both fans singing loud and proud, the City fans blasted “We are the Champions, Champions of England” and the Chelsea fans replied “We are the Champions, Champions of Europe” – both fans excited and nervous of a massive match ahead.
We got to our seats, 3 rows from the back and in the middle of the City section. We sang loud “Bluemoon”, “Best Team in the land and all the world”, “Kolo Kolo YaYa YaYa”, “Invisible Man”, “Fat Spanish Waiter”, “Mancini”, “Championeees”, “Stand up for the Champions”.
Great support from City today!!!! The Chelsea fans really showed their disappointment adter the sacking of Roberto Di Matteo and it looks like Benitez is in for a tough ride at the Bridge.
As far as the game goes City dominated possession throughout the match with Chelsea looking to counter when City lost the ball. Some of the top City performers on the day were Zabaleta, Nastasic, Barry, Milner, Silva, Dzeko and Kompany. I have just listed half the team but that was how strong a performance it was!!
City leaving disappointed with a point and Chelsea glad to escape defeat. A powerful display from the Champions
