But seriously, just giving the ball to your opponent after kick-off is weird.
it is weird... i think it's more a case of QPR relaxing once they knew they were safe and city being as desperate as desperate can be.

so i'll blame bolton.

On Monday evening citeh, rightly celebrated their title win with city centre parade, and just to prove he's got as much class, as he has loyalty, Quasimodo's uglier twin held up a message to SAF, roll on next May, he who laughs last.... mind you, he'll probably have buggared off by then!

This Chelsea must be the worst team that ever won the CL.

Probably!

They're like the 2006 Cardinals team that won the World Series. Running on the fumes of a good stretch of players, and....wait, what just happened?

Does raise questions about the strength of all the teams that lost to them, though, no?

Eh, Barca and Bayern both carved up Chelsea's defense pretty good, and I'd expect Barca and Bayern both to win the majority of the time in rematches.

It's not as if either of them "deserved" to beat Chelsea, though -- they have nobody to blame but themselves for bricking their penalties, hitting goalposts, etc.

Yeah, I definitely agree with all that- B&B had the skill to generate a ton of chances, yet inexplicably ended up being horrible with them, while Chelsea took full advantage of the few options available. I understand why other people will be grumpy that Chelsea somehow spent 300 minutes pirouetting on the brink of disaster, yet no one else was able to give them the slight tip over.

Great game... great ending to the season. Should be a very interesting off season.

I'm going to try to follow the EPL a bit closer this year.

Glory glory United.

new place this year, so I'm hoping to get better internet reception and better internet streaming ability. My enthusiasm for Chelsea was dampened slightly by them pretty much winning their entire offseason shopping list, but we'll see what happens as the season develops.

Completely besides the Premier League, how about that US win in Mexico? First time in 75 years. The point isn't whether the US was lucky to have Tim Howard, god-like diety in GK, it's that they're good enough to take advantage of what was there....

Can't believe Rangers-gate received no coverage here. Sure, no Australian gives a fuck about Scottish soccer, but it's a massive story. Scarcely believable.

They have to start over at the bottom level, right? It's ridiculous that no one figured out the league would suffer on TV w/out them

Div 3, so it'll be at least three years before they're back in premier league. But it's fair. They owe millions and I think they folded and then reformed to get out of the hole they were in.

It just proves how much of a joke Scottish soccer is. Celtic will win the next three titles by fucking miles.
