Anfield lit up once more for another European night. There were no flags placed on seats for half-interested football supporters to pick up and wave for 3 minutes before settling down to their prawn sandwiches.
The memories of Chelsea’s artificial atmosphere last week, held up by their Russian roubles, with their psychologically impaired manager drifted away as 7.45pm approached.
For all Jose Mourinho’s comments over the past 10 days, his side – assembled at massive cost – yet again failed to score at Anfield. This time they had 120 minutes and still couldn’t manage it.
Jose Mourinho, still found himself unable to agree that the reds were the better side on the night even though the reds dominated possession, actually won the game, had a perfectly legal goal disallowed and then held their nerve and managed to score all their penalties against ‘supposedly’ the best keeper in the World.
Anyway, we at Anfield Online, are fairly confident that thankfully that will be the last time we will have to listen to Jose Mourinho’s childish bleating. His ‘quadruple’ has imploded and all of a sudden he finds himself playing for just the FA Cup. If Roman’s got any sense he would kick him in to touch this summer. Besides that – they actually play some of the dullest long-ball football I have ever seen.
Enough about Chelsea. Let’s face it – what have they ever done. No need to renew your passports fellas.
Watch the goals, chat about the game, laugh about Mourinho, mock all the bitter Evertonians… you can do it all – and more.. in the forum. http://www.lfcreds.com/reds
