Chelsea looks like a perfect 10 as they advance to Champions League Final

The man they once called “Captain Fantastic” John Terry has again fallen well short of the billing after getting red carded and ejected in the first half of the Champion’s League semi-final between Chelsea and Barcelona. Despite being down one man for most of the match the Blues put on a perfect display of defense and how to not only tread water but turn the tide for about an hour of game time to post a 2-2 draw and advance to the final on aggregate. Moreover it was a complete statistical domination for the Italian side including Possession (83%), Total Shots (23-7), Territorial Advantage (82% to 18%), and Corners (10-1) BFC failed to win the only stat that really matters, goals. Once the buzz wears off from their victory the focus will surely turn to the poor example set by their captain who will also miss the final and if the band needs to move on to someone whom better exemplifies what Chelsea football is about. When the final decision comes down on who will manage the Blues going forward the second shoe will certainly be about who will head the club on the pitch.
