Aston Villa 1-2 Chelsea

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 This was a game of two haves
one who has his health, a new record, but no contract
the other, is clinging to the contract of life
discovering how fragile it can be
no matter how fit one might be deemed
it’s still an almighty shock
when it’s to leukaemia that you’re teamed…
Stillian coming to terms and dealing
with the reality
of a curve ball

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 and then Frank…
still dedicating goals to the departed
his mother always in his thoughts
but now he leaps onto the throne
in this most regal of sports
as he breaks Bobby Tambling’s long-lasting feat
and the accolades pour forth
from pundits to poetry, to the new fashioned tweet!

Notes

Premiership game # 37

Respect to Frank Lampard.
Respect to Stillian Petrov, who announced his retirement and was given a rousing send off, by both sets of fans.

The match:

Benteke scores first.
Ramires sent off
Lampard equals Bobby Tabmling’s record
Then breaks it with a two yard tap in – but it was all about the getting there!

Frank Lampard : 203 goals for Chelsea
Bobby Tambling : 202
Kerry Dixon : 193
Didier Drogba : 157
Roy Bentley : 150
Peter Osgood : 150
Jimmy Greaves : 132

That’s some list!
But still, all stats aside, the best for me?
Peter Osgood, the King of Stamford Bridge!

Unfortunately: John terry twisted his ankle and Eden Hazard pulled his hamstring.

Both are now very unlikely to make the Europa League Final on Wednesday ūüôĀ

For Neil & Hal – who were lucky enough to be there!
