Carling Cup Final- Live Coverage – First Half – Chelsea 1 – Spurs 0

Sorry about the delay folks, 2.45 always means 3.00 pm in student land, unfortunately the inQuire Towers were locked today ,a shady character is holding the keys hostage, bear with though, kick off is approaching and we’re going to be giving you full ball by ball commentary.

Here are the teams courtesy of the Grauniad:

Tottenham: Robinson, Hutton, Woodgate, King, Chimbonda, Lennon, Jenas, Zokora, Malbranque, Berbatov, Keane.
Subs: Cerny, Kaboul, Tainio, Huddlestone, Bent.

Chelsea: Cech, Belletti, Carvalho, Terry, Bridge, Wright-Phillips, Essien, Lampard, Obi, Anelka, Drogba.
Subs: Cudicini, Joe Cole, Ballack, Kalou, Alex.

Referee: Mark Halsey (Lancashire)

3.18 You’ve missed nonthing, it’s nil nil still

3.19 according to Patrick Omara (2nd Year- Economics) its been all spurs so far, and he’s an Arsenal boy, so he’s not lying

3.22 Robinson strolls around with the ball aimlessly, he kicks it into touch, J Wilkinson style, Chelsea however, get the line out.

3.23 Spurs surge forward but Berba is tackled in the box, it’s more cagey than London Zoo

3.25 Spurs are in complete control, Guardian acknowledged, they’re actually not, tis true that Chelsea are looking jet lagged though, as another Blue attack comes to nada

3.29 Drogba is dead, some Italian fella is at the ground, dunno what he’s doing here, all the good players are foreign!

3.30 Didier comes back to life, quelle suprise, Malbranque cracks a fizzing effort, Cech palms away, nothing notable occurs as a result of the Spurs corner

3.33. Chelsea win a tres dangerous free kick, fat Frank takes aim and misses, but a Chelsea dive, sorry spurs foul gives the Blues another trop dangereuse free kick, Didier takes aim and misses, I give it 8/10, Frank’s effort gets 2/10, that’s two marks for managing to kick the ball

3.37 Still nil nil, Nothing to choose between the teams now, and it’s officially more cagey than the San Diego zoo, which is, apparently the world’s largest animal penetentiary (


3.42 The goal came from a free kick identical to the previous one, in all but outcome, Robinson didn’t move, I doubt Capello will be impressed

3.44 Chelski rarely lose when they take the lead, it’ll be all up hill for spurs from here, Arron Lennon falls over comically

3.45 Berba tumbles over in the box, its not a penalty, and he should have shot

3.48 Fat Frank has a winge, Spurs get a free kick

3.49 The half time whistle goes, Spurs have got the Blues, Chelsea are ahead, against the run of play I feel, Didier Drogba has now scored in 3 Carling cup finals, bully for him

3.51 I’m going to get a drink, back soon.
