The only upsides to the travesty of the match between Chelsea & Spurs at the weekend is that it will most likely be THE game that finally forces FIFA to introduce video review technology into the game…way too late…and, that Chelsea won by such a big margin. They were already in front before the second goal (but not a goal). Although Spurs was obviously knocked back by the unfairness of it all, Chelsea did go on to ‘seal the deal’ quite convincingly. It was unfair, but probably marginally less unfair than Cambridge winning the boat race this year!
Here’s a reminder of a match in which Spurs beat Chelsea 4-0: 16th October 1920. The image of the war veterans is particularly poignant:http://www.sportspages.com/football/football_photographs/action_press/chelsea_v_tottenham_hotspur_1920_21_(king_george_being_presented)_6403?search&q=6403
