Now we know how next years Allsvenskan will look. Two newcomers were already there, Åtvidaberg and Mjällby, the question remaining was if Assyriska would join them. They had a 2 goal lead from the first game and i personally thought that would be enough. Once again i was wrong. All credit to Djurgården 3-0 after extra time. I am not sure what the biggest surprise was, keeping a clean sheet or scoring 3 goals. Congratulations however to Mattias Jonson who got the winner. He has had an injury filled season but delivered the goods when needed. The biggest question after they have finished celebrating todays result is what should they do next? Is Jeglertz the man to lead them into the new era? Will there be any money to buy there way out of the situation? What ever they decide i am sure that not too many of todays XI will be in the side next season.
AIK however will be hoping they do have the same side next season. Congratulations to them on doing the double. 2lax9 is your year. Why did they succeed? An inspirational trainer, reliable keeper, solid defence, well balanced midfield and 2 south americans up front and last but not least an arrogance and self belief that gave them the edge throughout the season.
Chelsea – Manchester United today. 65 minutes of very few chances with neither side really taking control. United looking comfortable for a point when the match changes character. Evans catches Drogba with his studs chest high. Drogba lies on the ground having some kind of spasm attack. A few tempers flare and the referee has to calm things down. 3 minutes later Drogba gets helped to his feet looking in agony and everyone is thinking there is no way he can continue. The referee walks upto him brandishes the yellow card (he was late in the challenge on Evans) and for a split second he is going to have a go at the ref when he remembers he is in great pain. Another grimace and he hobbles off. 1 min later he is back on the pitch. This incident got the crowd and Chelsea going and they pinched a 1-0 win.
