Belated Cheers To The Blues!

Champions League: Drogba, Di Matteo and one disgraceful Ovrebo It’s been, well, almost two months since Chelsea FC became the European champion. May I add for the first time ever!!! The statistics don’t matter; what matters is that my beloved club’s long search for the coveted trophy came to an end on that tense May 19 day with a dramatic penalty shootout in Germany. The odds were against Chelsea. Few people expected the Blues to beat a solid team like Bayern Munich in their own backyard.

I adore this club; I have relished every win; I have cried and suffered heartbreaks with every defeat, especially those CL eliminations by Liverpool and Barcelona!
