Chelsea 4-2 Reading

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 Goal one, scorer: none –
Caught a radio newsflash
Then later on a Sky rehash
Learned it was another Lampard pen
Won yet again
By a tricky Hazard

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 Goal two, yah boo,
I knew he was their dangerman –
Pobrebnyak equalises with a bullet of a header
Then goal three, a spilled free, from Guth_rie

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Half-time, we’re one down
Increasing frown

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Goal four, a matching score –
Two apiece and a slip apiece
A Federici fumble –
But Cahill doesn’t grumble!

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Goal five, and now we thrive
Although Brian McDermott livid
Claiming Torres is offside
With vexed verbal vivid!

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 Goal six, twix the bairn and I
We sigh
Big relief
To be brief
Last we’d heard
Was half-time word
And then we learned
Federici had not returned
When seeking parity restoration
In act of desperation
And ventured up for a last minute corner
But was then left marooned
Stamford Bridge festooned
With rounds of applause
As an Ivanovic tap-in advances our cause
and with no hint of fatigue, we chant…
“We-are-top-of-the-league, say



The match brought forward from the regulation fixture weekend, due to the fact we’ll be competing in the UEFA Super Cup! 🙂

A spill apiece from Cech and Federici.

And then the closing goal, in extra-time – been waiting a long time to see one – where a keeper goes up for a corner but then concedes when the defending team break quickly!

For the second week in a row, Hazard wins a penalty, Lampard despatches; and Ivanovic gets on the scoreboard after running the full length of the pitch – impressive fitness!
