Chelsea – United

So Chelsea did enough tonight to get a 2-1 win over DC United. The whole match was meaningless in the grand scheme of things, nothing really on the line for either team. Plus, you can’t take seriously a match where the opposition puts in 10 subs at half time! I found it hard to care about this result, I’ll be more worried and looking forward to the next match against the Metrostars for example. It is an attitude that a lot folks found perplexing, particularly fans who might go to one or two united games a season. They were really surprised that Staci and I werent’ going to the game. "But its Chelsea!" they’d say and I’d say something polite. But its the usual mid-season friendly against a European team. It’s hard to say that it proves anything about "how far MLS has come".
