Welcome to A Drop of Claret and Blue. Let’s have a look back at December, shall we?
The month started very promisingly indeed. Having just lost to Spurs and Manchester United, I didn’t hold much hope of us getting anything at home to Chelsea, who were still reeling from the departure of manager Roberto di Matteo, with the fans overwhelmingly frustrated at the appointment of former Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez. Even still, this unrest failed to provide me with much optimism, and when we went a goal down in a first half that Chelsea largely dominated, I was far from surprised. What happened next, however, stunned me almost into paralysis. An exaggeration, I’m sure you’ll note; but even now, typing about that second half, I can hardly believe the words my fingers are forming.
