Oh, and I'm not ashamed to want Chelsea to beat City on Wednesday.
Wishful thinking. Chelsea were woefully rubbish. Somehow, Chelsea escaped unscathed due to some poor finishing on City's part and Gary Cahill put them ahead with a fluke goal. Essien conceded an awful handball penalty which Aguero smashed in. Tevez played an admittedly lovely 1-2 pass-and-move exchange with Nasri to which Nasri slotted home for the winner.
I'd be tempted to say City were jammy, jammy bastards, but they didn't have to play all that well to beat Chelsea. In my mind, Chelsea have no business finishing top four on that gutless performance alone... aside from them being a plastic club like City run by John Terry and Abramovich's dubiously acquired wealth, of course.
Ah well, at least tonight proved how small-time, plastic, desperate the City lot are. After all of Carlos Tevez's shenanigans wanting to leave to the most disgraceful level possible, the City fans gave Tevez a hero's welcome for the most part.
Anyhow, I finished watching the last 20 minutes of the QPR-Liverpool game. Epic collapse from Liverpool. They absolutely bottle it after going 2-0 up and lose it to a QPR side likely to be relegated IMO.
