Chelsea loose and nobody say a thing
« on: August 23, 2006, 10:20:13 PM »
Middlesbrough 2-1 Chelsea¬ 
By Saj Chowdhury¬ 
www.bbc.co.uk



Mark Viduka scored a stoppage-time goal to give Middlesbrough a win at the expense of Premiership champions Chelsea at The Riverside.

Viduka picked up Yakubu's pass on the edge of the six-yard area to rifle past Carlo Cudicini.

Andriy Shevchenko scored his first Premiership goal to give Chelsea the lead, poking home Wayne Bridge's cross.

Middlesbrough's Emanuel Pogatetz headed in the equaliser in the second half from Fabio Rochemback's free-kick.

There was just about enough to suggest at The Riverside that Chelsea could find themselves in a pickle on more than one occasion this season.

Gareth Southgate's Middlesbrough came close to showing why that might be the case early in the match.


Gaizka Mendieta, with a low shot, Chris Rigott and Yakubu, with headers, all went close to giving the Teessiders an early and deserved lead.

Jose Mourinho's Blues were handicapped, in relative terms, prior to kick-off when Arjen Robben suffered a calf injury in the warm-up.

New signing Salomon Kalou was brought into the starting XI and looked very lively, although he did come up against a very inexperienced Middlesbrough back four.

The Ivory Coast international came within inches of opening his league account, but failed to get on the end of his fellow compatriot Didier Drogba's cross.

Drogba and his new striking partner Shevchenko appeared to be competing against each other, rather than aiming to forge a solid bond between themselves.

If that was the case, then the Ukrainian came out on top. He opened his account in the Premiership after Boro wasted their three early chances.

The move itself was a peach. Bridge, who had his second successive impressive game, sped down the left and exchanged passes with Michael Essien before rifling in a low cross that Shevchenko got to ahead of Boro's George Boateng.

Shevchenko was very good and a joy to watch. Most of what he did was clever without over-playing and when he did come under a challenge, there were no histrionics.

His best moment was not the goal, but when he raced down the left and delivered a superb ball for Frank Lampard whose tame header rebounded off the post and to safety.

Lampard had been quiet until then and did not have his best game - neither did his fellow midfielders.

They should have killed off the match, but failed to.

That allowed Middlesbrough to rediscover the early belief they had.

The arrival of teenager midfielder Lee Cattermole and striker Mark Viduka appeared to change the game for Southgate's side.

Their endeavour drove their team-mates forward and with 10 minutes left Middlesbrough's efforts were rewarded.

A free-kick from the left edge of the penalty area was whipped in and met brilliantly by Pogatetz.

A draw would have been seen as a victory for Boro, but they wanted more - after all, how many times does a team have the chance to beat the all-conquering Chelsea?

So in the depths of injury time, Viduka made sure he was first to pick up a knee pass from team-mate Yakubu.

He swivelled on a sixpence and sent the home support at The Riverside wild.

Well that means that they have one less to loose this year already.


By the way I am not really a supporter of any other team other than the Soca Warriors. Just making the comment that for all the cross talk and banter I was surprised that no one had posted this story.

Most people yuh see backing Chelsea on here back them becaus eit gives them something to brag about, like Bulls fans in the 90's.

It had none of them on here three years ago and I mean NONE. Let Chelsea go two years without winning a title and there will be none again.

I saw the game . Great goalkeeping kept Boro in the game. The score could have been three -0 at half time. Once the two men up front get it right , look out. This is only the second game. Check me out in January.

Just a reminder goalkeeping is part of the game,so when people keep saying great goalkeeping kept them in the game,there job is to expose that great goalkeeping and if they can't,only the end result matters which is boro 2 chelsea 1......................

Welcome to football.

When United was running rampant they used to lose games where all kinda shit keeper play the game of thier lives.

Why? Because everybody want to beat the team on top and that not going to change all season long so that reasoning is just optimism.

I also think it will be a blessing in a disguise as Mourinho will stop trying to play 3/4 central midfielders in a 4-4-2.

However i think Man Utd will be right up Chelsea's ass this season as Fergie seems to have sorted his brain out over the summer.
