    anyone watching this bloodbath?

  2. Andrei says:

    Falcao is tearing Chelsea defense apart.

  3. Andrei says:

    Chelsea are discovering in a hard way that La Liga has more two good teams…

  4. Dust says:

    This looks more like a Di Matteo team….

    That falcao is mustard!

  5. CH says:

    Chelsea is no longer a threat to best european teams which is ironic because the are a better team now. But the way the old team was set up made them very difficult to breakdown. They have too much players that actually want to play football now and dont have the drive to get back on defence. Theyve become like Bayern a very good attacking team but a poor defensive team. But their attack isnt good enough to compensate for their defense vrs the best teams in the champions league. BTW im not saying that Atletico is one of the best teams they just happen to have the best #9 in the world at the moment.

    LOL so much for hulk! Falcaoman is the new Target for all clubs.

    S much for torres looking like he’s back…LOL

  7. Andrei says:

    Oh dear…

  8. PaulF says:

    Chelsea will lose the game because Di matteo went safe route rather than Attack A. Madrid.
    Take out Lampard, Put Oscar in the middle and Moses on the left.
    both Lamps and Mikel do the same thing.

  9. Dust says:

    Is this a baseball score now. LOL 4-0

  10. jtm371 says:

    this is a old fashion ass kicking.

  11. Moose9t9 says:

    this is a good lesson for La Liga bashers. This could also happen with a team like Bilbao or Valencia or Sevilla

  12. Andrei says:

    Now it is getting really embarrassing…

  13. SpHSpH says:

    Why does FOX Soccer uses RobStone/WarrenBarton as commentators? I would MUCH prefer that they keep the original audio … it is so in-authentic to have two guys calling the game while watching it on monitors. The LIVE announcers provide infinitely better atmosphere!

  14. Dust says:

    The only thing that would make this a better loss for chelsea would be a ivanovic or Torres red card :)

  15. Andrei says:

    The most amazing thing about this game is that Chelsea are lucky that it is just 4-0.
