Bump in the road

Well, as hard as it is to say this, Chelsea played better than we did.

What they did well was WANT every ball.  We were dispossessed too many times.  They did not allow us to break and it is on the break that we are very dangerous.  When we had the ball in the box, they had 8 men there, blocking almost every shot.

The most telling statistic for me:  65% possession, 25 shots, only 3 on goal.  One was a dribbler, the other two were the free kick from David Silva and the curler from Jovetic.  Unfortunately, Czek made some fine saves.  On the plus side, Joe Hart made some fine saves.

But it was not our day.

The good news is that there are still 42 points to play for.  May we get more than everyone else!
