By Ines Barbosa: I’m writing this just minutes after Howard Webb blew the final whistle of the game Chelsea vs. Man City. And I think it’s the first time this season I’ve been really crazed over a Chelsea game.
In the first half, after a few minutes of destabilization, Chelsea started to look better and better and created much more danger than City. And throughout those first forty-something minutes, there was a man whose name sounded higher than the others, a name the stadium echoed a few times: Fernando Torres.
When he had his first clear chance, he shot the ball wide over the net, one of those shots you just can’t miss, a mistake he used to make a lot. And usually after that he would just get more and more despondent and not do anything good for the rest of the game, but I thought that today it would be different. He looked fierce and when he got up from the floor after that shot, he looked even fiercer and determined.
