Chelsea reach another Carling Cup final

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 it was almost as if
10 security guards
gave up their pitchside perimeter parking
to protect new papa Petr

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 for such was the luminous lick of their livery –
and when matched with Malouda’s oh so sweet delivery
and Joe Cole’s succulent finish
Everton’s Toffeemen came unstuck

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 “Would the Chelsea fans please sit down!”
both tannoyed
and annoyed
mid-attack

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 but when you’re celebrating
a semi-final victory
whether it be in royal blue
or in flourescent finery

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 then the frolicsome fanfare unfolding
on the Blue banks of the Mersey
just has to be as gaudy
as the effervescent jersey!

Carling FA Cup Semi-Final, second leg
Chelsea beat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park
to win the tie 3-1

reference to Chelsea’s ‘second strip’ : luminous yellow tops!

And Florent Malouda’s delicious through ball and exquisite finish from Joe Cole!

And congratulations to Petr Cech, who became a first-time Dad the night before! He dedicated his clean sheet to wife and daughter!
