Sir Alex, welcome to Moscow !

Chelsea 3-2 Liverpool (33 Drogba 1-0, 64 Torres 1-1, 98 Lampard penalty 2-1, 105 Drogba 3-1, 117 Babel 3-2).

Shit happens.
And Merseysiders have no-one to blame but themselves.
Two fantastic substitutions became an apotheosis of all: last week Riise scoring into own net, this week Hyypia conceding decisive - and foolish, because Ballack moved away from the penalty area - spot-kick.

So, now I only have a few words to Sir Alex Ferguson. As one of my ancestors would say, to Providence I hereby commend you, and I counsel you by way of caution to forbear from letting Darren Fletcher play and systematically lose the ball in those dark hours when the powers of evil are exalted.
