Chelsea fans have to be disappointed with dropping points to QPR, but this game should serve as a reminder as to why Chelsea need to run out a strong squad against every single Premier League opponent. Manchester City did Chelsea a favor, dropping points today as well. We still haven't lost in the Premier League, and we'll be welcoming Italian champion's Juventus to town on Wednesday as we kick off our defense of the Champions League title. Here's my initial thoughts from Saturday's fixture:
- Unfortunately there's just no way to ignore this, so we'll start with the handshakes. I really don't care what Anton Ferdinand and John Terry think of each other, but what exactly is Ferdinand trying to prove when he ignores Ashley Cole? Cole was not part of the incident, and said nothing negative about Ferdinand in that entire affair. I don't think anyone holds his contempt of Terry against him, but blaming Cole for last year's incident just seems both stupid and childish.
Anyway, here's the community ratings form for you all to have fun with. Have at it...
