Robbed and Hurt
If I was Jose I would be saying we just won 2-1 as Chelskis 2nd goal should never have been and M. Bent scored a perfectly fine goal, instead we were robbed and went away with nothing.
Chelsea edged an even 1st half and grabbed a goal after just 6 minutes on the clock. Lampard swung in a corner, which Ballack met with a diving headed, Hughes blocked it but it landed at the feet of Drogba who hammered it between the post and Ambrose.
With 13 minutes gone a neat bit of play on the edge of the box found Ballack who drove the ball along the ground with great power only for Carson to make a smart save low to his left.
JFH when clean though only for the ref to wave his flag and then Reid got a knock and Romm joined the action. It only took him a minute to create a chance for DB who headed wide.
Drogba when through our defence and was closing in on the goal but he dragged his shot well wide. JFH got in to handbags with Ballack, just before the whistle went for half time.
We started the better in the second half, but lost Traore after he failed to shake off a knock from the 1st half.
Then with 54 minutes on the clock JFH did what every Charlton fan had been waiting for after some great wide work from Romm he found JFH who skipped a tackle took a touch and curled it along the ground into the bottom corner.
But we were only on level terms for 6 minutes, Diawara when off injured just before Chelski took a corner, which found the head of Carvalho, as the ball flew towards the goal, Faye got a touch but it went in anyway. Drogba looked to have been in the keepers way but the ref let the goal stand.
Marcus came on for Diawara and he put the ball in the net as the clock struck the 72-minute mark, but the ref disallowed it for handball but it clearly came off of his chest.
The ref really decided to put on his Chelski shirt after Kalou threw himself to the ground after the slightest touch from El Karkouri. It was a joke but lucky for us Super Scott was between the sticks and saved Lampards spot kick.
Despite some pressure we could not find an equaliser and Chelski has stolen 3 points from Dowies red army.
