Well, I certainly expected more of what we saw on Wednesday. Chelsea needed to win, or at least that’s what their manager said before the game started, so naturally they’d exploit our weak flanks…right?
Well, somehow, it didn’t turn out that way.
I watched the entire match and still can’t encapsulate what, or how it all happened. Was it their (inexplicable) timidity? Stockdale’s poise in net? Our bizarre but ultimately stifling lineup?
Was it…our white-black-black kits? Hmm…
