Chelsea lost 3-3 to Blackburn on penalties… so no Carling Cup for the Pensioners. Apparently (remember I am new to a lot all of this) the Carling Cup ranks somewhere slightly above playing for the Ladies Prison Championship as Commander Ancelotti made 8 changes to the side that crushed Arsenal a fortnight ago, and used all three substitutions after half, leaving the Blues down to 10 players when Salomon Kalou was injured and had to leave the pitch. All attention is being rightly focused on this weekend’s match against gay tourist capital Man City.
Highlight: Didier is on an absolute roll, and scored only two minutes after being inserted into the match.
Lowlight: Señor Kalou is unfortunately out for two weeks with his thigh injury.
