Atletico Madrid 4-1 Chelsea

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Goal one, we shun, defensive duties
Goal two, so Blue
Goal three, a personal spree, Falcao hits a hat-trick of beauties,
Goal four, shut the door
This harassment, is an embarrassment
As Miranda, reads us our rights
And this night’s – a write-off
Goal five, no jive
Only a sardonic cheer, as we slink away from here

Notes

European Super Cup, in Monaco.
The Spanish wanted it more than we did.
They also outnumbered us up in the stands.

Our only goalscorer – Gary Cahill, from a corner

I had to check the teamsheet again – only JT missing, full squad otherwise.
The same night was the closing night of the English transfer window – pity we didn’t sign Falcao on the spot!
Danny Sturridge came on as sub, even though he wasn’t listed to play – which meant his loan deal to Liverpool didn’t materialise.
Michael Essien did move on loan to re-join the Special One at Real Madrid.
