News that the Chelsea Cup game is being put back to the Sunday at 4pm by the BBC. Ridiculous and the club have rightly complained, but to no avail.
Poor start to the day with Wigan’s Sam Tomkins revealing on Sky that he’s a rag. He loved Cantona kicking that Palace fan tha time. “Very rock’n’roll!” Funny how they never show the dirty, nasty, snidy foul on the Palace player which got the Frenchman sent off.
We were beaten before we started. Pellers saying that it wasn’t a title decider and if we lose there’s still a lot of games to play (or lose?)
12.45PM kick off and you know what that means? Yup - rain for the hour up to the kick off.
Usual dosy start, Yaya losing the ball which led to the foul and Huth’s goal. We then dominated, could have had a penalty, and then Pellers’ half time team talk inspired us to conceded number two as Mahrez zipped through our lunging defenders. Huth headed home number three, perched on Kolarov’s shoulders (not investigated on MOTD), and Sergio got a late consolation but if we’d shaped ourselves we could have made it a grandstand finish.
So we could’ve gone top, but are now down to 4th.
And what is Pep going to inherit?Dave
