Cristiano Ronaldo opened the goal scoring with a beautifully placed header at 42nd minute. He rose high above the rest as you can see, with everyone else looking. A good goal.
3 minutes later, lucky Lampart got an equaliser through 2 deflections by Man Utd defence. In the whole game, unlucky Chelsea got 2 efforts hit the post. Man Utd too got several chances saved by Petr Cech.
Didier Drogba showed that he's inferior by slapping Nemanja Vidic, only to be sent off in the dying minutes of extra time. This could well be his last game for the Blues, after speculation of him linked to Inter Milan, AC Milan, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
After a tensed 120 minutes, it was a gamble as both teams were held to 1-1. Both teams selected 5 penalty takers. It was 5-5 and left for John Terry to take the final penalty, which could be the winning kick. JT slipped, and the ball hit the post, yet again. Everone thought it wasn't Chelsea's day. Another penalty kick were to be taken. Giggs stepped up and scored. The final kick was taken by Nicholas Anelka....but his effort was saved by Edwin Van der Saar. It was all but over for Chelsea. The millions spend by Roman Abramovich couldn't bring them any trophy this season. Was it fated? Was it luck? Or was it that the team wasn't good enought? Whose fault was it? John Terry's, for missing the spot kick? Or Drogba's, for slapping Vidic, being sent off and could not take the spot kick, which caused JT to take the final kick? There's no point in pointing fingers now. Guess Roman gotta spend another tens of millions next season to bring in a few more stars.
Man Utd proved to be the best team this season, with C Ronaldo scoring 42 goals this season. The question is, can he do the same next season? Let's wait and see....meanwhile, congratulations to MU for a superb season...
