Reds fall short as Chelsea pulls it off again!

Report by Mat Loup

Chelsea 3 - Liverpool 2

A much revamped Chelsea supporters’ side beat their Liverpool counterparts 3-2 in a fine and thrilling contest in Kerrisdale on Saturday evening. Both teams committed to attack throughout, ensuring a slew of chances, the majority of which fell to the Scousers. However, a combination of magnificent goalkeeping by Danny and finishing by Stuart, along with shooting as careless as the whereabouts of a Liver Bird’s knickers by the Reds meant we came away with the win.

 

There was another uncanny parallel with the most recent Champions League encounters between the two clubs; whereas in the first game an own goal had helped clinched the result, here it was the scoreline that matched the May fixture at Stamford Bridge.

 

As in the first game, the lovable Scallies did the initial pressing, with shots narrowly missing the posts on either side. Yet it was the Blues who made the breakthrough, with Stuart running on to a long ball, shrugging off a defender’s attentions, rounding the keeper before firing home from a tight angle.

 

Back came the Reds to equalize in bizarre fashion from a corner, the ball striking both posts but the referee seemingly defying geometric laws to call the goal good. There was also a suspicion that he did this in the spirit of the game as he believed a Blues defender had handled on the line. No matter. What followed shortly after was the comic highpoint of the match.

 

At another Liverpool corner, there was the usual mild jostling in the box. Danny took some mild revenge by tugging at the red striker’s shorts, who then, literally, saw red. As a family website, we can’t print the stream of invective. Let’s just say he had a sense of humour failure, still threatening elbows and God knows what at half-time. Ste, the Liverpool impresario, had to have a quiet word.

 

Chelsea’ second came just before the break. Fernando called some inspired changes from the side, and within 30 seconds Stuart had put as ahead again.

 

The second half resumed in hammer and tongs mode, and it was Chelsea again who forced the issue with Stuart finishing off a fine move after Gerry had stolen the ball from Adam, Liverpool’s playmaker. As the game opened up further still, there were opportunities aplenty at either end. Only in the game’s dying embers did Liverpool score again, but it could not affect the final outcome.

 

It was a fine team performance overall, with no-one looking at of place or out of sorts. Aside from the two main matchwinners, "hat-trick man" Stuart and "too many saves to mention" Danny, special mention also to Kaz, who looked coolly imperious either in defence or midfield and had that extra second of time all good players seem to own. The defence was marshalled as ever by Jason, and midfield by Fernando.

 

Credit, too, to our Scouse friends, who ensured that apart from the odd handbags-at-10-paces moments, it was played in the right spirit. And all returned to a full set of hub caps...which was nice.


PS from Gerry.  Many thanks to all the players that showed up. It was our best performance to date, and everyone had a good time. Special thanks to Mat Loup for his hard work in getting an excellent team together and yet again finding a first class field. Watch out for details of further games.

Globe and Mail Covers Chelsea/Man Utd Supporters Match

Chelsea Vancouver 2 - Man United Vancouver 3

We was robbed!  Just as our senior team was mugged in the midnight-in-Moscow injustice, our supporters' team was robbed on the West Side.

A thrilling comeback from 0-2 down to 2-2 was about to become 3-2 to the Blues when an off-side call, more suited to Old Trafford refereeing, let them escape.  They sneaked a goal at the end, before the referee cut the game short with his infamous Alex Ferguson watch.

Much credit goes to the Blues for a good show against a Man United team that turned up in their pub sponsor's kit, looking more like Juventus than Junited. Turns out they play each week, which was very unsporting of them. Jason had another dominating display at the centre of defence, where Jeff also had a really good game, but Man-of-the-Match has to be Tim who scored both our goals and was the victim of the 'orrible off-side call that would have levelled the match.

Thanks again to Mat Loup for arranging the game and playing through a back injury and to Dave Elvin for playing in goal - we missed his heading power at corners, and to our supporters Andrew Whitaker and Luca!

Our next game is against Liverpool on July 5th at the same venue Point Grey secondary school Astroturf, on Arbutus and 37th. If you want to play then please contact us. We could do with a few more players - particularly someone who plays in goal regularly.
