Chelsea FC: Barclay’s Premier League Champions 2009/2010


I’m glad we have cable connection this week. I’m able to watch the final game for the Barclay’s Premier League Championship 2009/2010. I’m a bit nervous about this match. Sometimes things could go wrong in any football match but I know Chelsea has the uber talented squad to win this. It was truly a fantastic game to watch. I enjoyed it a lot.

It was such a relief when Anelka scored early, around 4 minutes, coz it got rid of the jitters. Everyone was able to relax and not afraid anymore of messing it up. I didn’t expect that they would score 7 more and a hat-trick for Drogba, no less. Chelsea started a bit slow. In the first half, Wigan had a higher percentage of possession. Chelsea became serious and dominated the 2nd half. The team scored 6 more goals. What an outstanding, emphatic finish to the league. The team also set a new record of scoring 103 goals, the highest since the 1960’s I guess. Finally, the trophy went back to Stamford Bridge. Cech and Drogba won the Golden Gloves and Golden Boots, respectively.

I was glad to see the owner, Roman Abramovich, smiling and seemingly enjoying the game. It was fun to see his reaction when goals were missed or hit. He even joined in a Chelsea cheer. Carlo Ancelotti, the team coach won a big event in his first year in an English league. He was brought in because of the owner’s alleged desire to win the European championship in style. Chelsea wasn’t successful in that front but I am more than happy that Chelsea won the Premier League instead. Looking forward to the next season. I know that elusive Champions League Cup will come one day. I hope Lampsy, JT, Drogba, Ballack, Carvalho, Mikel, Essien, Cech will win it while playing for Chelsea. They deserve it.

There is still another game to look forward to before this season ends, the FA cup final against Portsmouth on May 15 at the New Wembley. I hope we get a double this time.

So congratulations Chelsea FC. Up the chels.
