Pushing Our Luck

Pushing Our Luck

Having gone 37 games unbeaten, in a period that spanned in excess of a year, and winning 35 of those 37 games, was a last minute defeat always going to be the kind of thing that ended such a run for Shakhtar Donetsk?
Also, when you couple that fact with the trait that Chelsea seem to be developing whereby late goals are all the rage, did anyone manage to scam the bookmakers for a few quid?

However, whilst dramatic late wins are great, leaving everybody with a warm feeling inside, we`re knowledgeable to accept that 'Lady Luck` can`t keep smiling on us forever and that, one day, she`ll turn a blind eye.

Fernando Torres, who 'Lady Luck` shine don big-time for the first goal, has admitted as such in an interview with the media, whereby he`s remarked,

"I am happy with the result but we know we must do much better and that we have to improve."

"We have been creating problems for teams, pressing and creating chances from their mistakes, but not when we have the ball like we used to."

"When we needed to win, we did. We did it last season against Valencia, Napoli and Barcelona - also the final against Bayern Munich."

"Shakhtar was really the first big test of the season and we did it as well."

"Maybe we were a bit lucky but Chelsea has this special thing that no one can buy."

"We all know this kind of situation cannot happen again because, especially in the Champions League, at times like these you can be out."


Exactly, it is now time to put team sot bed before our luck and good fortune dries up, otherwise we`re going be kicked out on our backsides sooner rather than later!

The easiest path to stopping this very nasty habit of leaving it till late to win or draw matches is to score more goals and earlier..till we have 2-3 actually in form strikers though we will struggle to do this.. The problem is our blunt strike force coupled with a now shockingly porous defense.

Thank u merlin for understanding and pointing out the facts that some people are refusing to acknowledge, atleast they won't call u juvenile or disloyal neither will it make u less of a chelsea fan for stating the truth, I understand too, that the way we criticize matters, and I wish we know how to conduct ourselves in here, by not baiting eachother with insults, I was baited 3 times recently when I voiced my sincere opinion and I am sure u are aware of this, I hope something is done about it, frlamp called me a hypocrite and didn't apologize for it, and I am still waiting for his apology, I am sure he misunderstood me as anybody can,but let fans atimes differentiate btw puns and humour atimes. If u can't, don't take a ugly swipe at someone.

On the article merlin, my criticism of rdm, is not born out of hatred but for perfection, bayern munich have a mad array of talent from the keeper to the attack, and they are team stronger than shakter, barcelona are stronger than shakter too, malaga are compact and play to their strength and Psg will also be there along with porto, if we don't address our flaws now and this team keeps making errors and leaking goals as we do, them we'll be dumped out from europe unceremonously, we have to be very strong as a team to ha ve a chance againnst quality sides as this so we'll be able to match them while still playing beautiful football. We can't beat barca or bayern now with our new style of play if we don't perfect it. Its clear as broad day light.

This lady has evaded us for sometime. But the late wins come from attitude of the players. They have a never say over until it is over attitude, which has been our undoing in recent seasons.

I think it's a good trait to have in the team, abiltiy alone doesnt get it done all the time, we need some element of luck, too.
