John Terry Slip Gives Man Utd Double

with one comment

The class of Chelsea (aka the Evil Empire), John Terry, lost his footing while taking the penalty kick that should have ended the game for Chelsea in the shootout (mockingly, the Times of London has the image below on their front page). Instead, it sent the shootout to extra frames. Then, in the seventh round, Nicolas Anelka’s attempt was blocked by United’s keeper Edwin Van der Sar. The net result was a priceless (eventhough it was a shootout) finish of a closely contested game. A team leader on both sides missed a shot.

Christiano Ronaldo, scorer of an amazing 42 goals this season, managed to miss a penalty in the shootout as well. After the first half, the drama and tension was thick and both defenses solid. The final score line: 1-1 after regulation, 6-5 on penalties. Here’s the Times recap.

It will be interesting to see who return next season on both sides.

Also, here are two takes on yesterday’s game. The first is from That’s On Point, the other is Power Line.

Hopefully, anyone who was planning to watch this game and also reads this site had a chance to catch it. Otherwise they’ve been spoiled!
