Chelsea’s Champions League hopes came crashing down at Stamford Bridge last night as goals from Adrian Lopez, Diego Costa and Arda Turan put the Blues to the sword at the semi-final stage of Europe’s elite club competition.
Some supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern had already booked their tickets to Lisbon, on the assumption Mourinho’s stunning home record, and ‘bus parking’ tactics from the first leg would be enough to see the favourites through.
Instead however, it will be an all Madrid final, after Diego Simeone outwitted the ‘Special One’ in his own backyard, without a bus in sight.
Atletico were wholly convincing and showed the world that they mean business. Ironically, it was Diego Costa who scored their second – a man who has been linked with the Blues all season long.
Anyhow, Simeone could not resist a parting shot at Mourinho as he left Stamford Bridge last night – in a little yellow Fiat Cinquecento alongside the Inbetweeners.
It doesn’t always pay to be a bus w*****, does it Jose?
