You have the right to differ because there's actually more to football. I understand now why guys prefer watching at the public places like mamak stalls because of the atmosphere. People clad in their favourite team jerseys and shouted when there's a slightest chance of scoring. For me, I was busy savoring my nasi Kandar during the first half of the game.
At the ninth minute, United's Nemanja Vidic was carried off on a stretcher with a facial injury. He was bleeding from the mouth after Drogba's knee knocked into his jaw and it's a pity for him to exit within less than 10 minutes of the game.
Ballack had given Chelsea a 45th minute lead and he sealed a vital win in controversial circumstances by slotting home a penalty five minutes from time. However, a monumental blunder by Ricardo Carvalho gifted United a 55th minute equaliser to Wayne Rooney.
Ballack's goal sparked emotional scenes as all the Chelsea players held up Frank Lampard's number eight shirt with the message 'Pat Lampard - R.I.P'. Ballack who had taken his shirt off, was then booked by Wiley. It was a tribute to Lampard's mother, who passed away from pneumonia on Thursday.
Sometimes it just feel so funny to see a German player saving the day for an English club. Where have the good English players gone? Why clubs are allowed to sell and buy players as to when and where they wish? Don't they care about the players' feelings when deciding who and whom has to be sold? At the end of the day, it's just another game and money. It's my waste of time trying to understand how the game works so I just sit down and enjoy and learn not to ask stupid questions during the match.
No reason to say football is a healthy sport if you are not in it. Watching kills.
