In the same way that Chelsea experienced the same ovation for their brave effort in 2005, the same was now in turn given to the United Reds in their 0-0 standoff with Chelsea at the Stamford Bridge Pitch. It is a fact that the Reds are ailing and paying tribute to the heroic efforts by the left players emphasizing on team play lead by Wes Brown, there is nothing better than to receive due recognition for the efforts of the remaining players of the powerhouse club.
Defense was the name of the game between the match of the Reds and Chelsea and this was typified as both failed to score a goal for the tight defense both teams applied. Chelsea had a change to score a goal in the end game, but thanks to the combined efforts of the Reds’ players, they were able to hold off any offensive from Chelsea.
“It was a difficult game for us,” he added. “Both sides didn’t play their strongest teams, but we have come out with a respectable draw.
“It was [a strange game]. There was a few lads in from the reserves and some players played out of position. We’ve not played together all season, so to come to Chelsea we had to play well. I thought we relly stuck together.
“Chelsea put a lot of pressure on us towards the end of the game. It looked like they might nick a goal at the end, but we managed to hold on and kept on defending.” –Wes Brown: Wes praises Blues gesture
