Blue is the Color: My First Season

Wigan v Chelsea

Another game another 6-0 thrashing. This one was a little more even. The first half would even be considered competitive. Wigan proved to be much more capable than West Bromwich, that being said they are obviously not an elite team.

I wonder if Chelsea is spoiling me. I haven’t followed the club long and have already seen 12 goals. This is the sort of thing that most teams take 4-6 games to accomplish. A friend of mine who is a Liverpool fan is ultra defensive now because his team had shown so few signs of brilliance. As of writing this, Liverpool has scored two goals over the entire season.

This game featured a great Malouda goal and two quick Kalou goals. I think that the man of the match truly was Anelka. He sealed the deal with the second and third goals. Drogba had an assist hat trick but he never really dominated the game. The long pass from Mikel was outstanding and the play of the match for me.

Chelsea v Stoke

If I felt spoiled by the Wigan game, the Stoke game highlighted the frustration of being a football fan in America.  The game was not on any of the channels I receive and have settled for highlights.  From the look of the highlights, Chelsea was able to handle Stoke, but not completely dominate.  Malouda has been on an absolute tare.  Four goals, scoring in ever game this season.  Drogba’s penalty was the icing on the cake. Can’t wait for the start of the champions league and my first match in Boston
