Sorry was very much a dog fight. I made my last post while watching the match on DVR so I had my game face on. Van Der Sar is one of my all time favorite Keepers. He does have a history of substitutions though.

In retrospect we were really lucky to have drawn even on 80 minutes. Those kind of games make my skin crawl. But it's all good dude. I'm all chilled out now.

Thanks for your comment...and no chip on my shoulders. It's more like a pain in my arse, lol!

Van Der Sar gimping out early on is the reason you didn't win. You need to reevaluate many aspects of what actually happened.

boy that was a dogfight this weekend wasn't it? We should have beaten you but oh well I suppose we will just have to do it next time.
Notorious O.T.T. 09/22/08
Ray Wilkins has been appointed Chelsea's assistant first-team coach, replacing Steve Clarke, who has moved to West Ham. Clarke spent 20 seasons at Chelsea, both as a player and as a coach. The 45-year-old Clarke joins West Ham on a three-year deal, joining up with new boss Gianfranco Zola, after handing in his resignation last Thursday.

Chelsea captain John Terry has been cleared to play against Manchester United on Sunday after his appeal against a red card proved successful. Terry was sent off for a foul on Manchester City striker Jo, but a Football Association hearing upheld Chelsea's claim of wrongful dismissal. Had the ban been enforced, Terry would have missed Sunday's crucial Premier League clash with champions United, as well as the Carling Cup tie against Portsmouth on 24 September and the league encounter with Stoke three days later. The foul on Jo occurred inside the centre circle, with Terry's centre-back partner Ricardo Carvalho covering the play and full-back Jose Bosingwa also sprinting back to defend. Chelsea's on-field complaints were initially based on the fact that Terry was not the last defender.

Chelsea's Michael Essien has had knee surgery in France to repair a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament.
The midfielder suffered the injury during Ghana's World Cup qualifier against Libya on 5 September. Essien is expected to be out of action for five months and a Chelsea spokesman told BBC Sport: "The operation has been a success." Essien landed awkwardly during the qualifier against Libya and was taken to hospital for scans, which confirmed the ligament damage.

Chelsea opened their Champions League campaign in emphatic fashion with a comfortable win against Bordeaux 4- Nil. Frank Lampard headed Chelsea in front after only 14 minutes from Jose Bosingwa's perfect right-wing cross.

Joe Cole then glanced in Lampard's corner on the half-hour as Chelsea took complete control.

Florent Malouda added the third with a driven left-foot shot eight minutes from time and Nicolas Anelka tapped in a fourth in injury time. Bordeaux were tame opposition, with Chelsea keeper Petr Cech not forced into serious action at any point, but it was still an impressive show as the Premier League leaders continued the form that has taken them to the summit.
