When things go wrong, and they often will,
Your road it seems goes all uphill.
Your funds are low your debts are high,
You try to laugh, but can only cry.
It's then you think, "It's time to quit,"
Don't turn to me, I don't care a BIT.

EUROPEAN CUP TONIGHT ---LIVERPOOL --AWAY 1stleg...

Chelsea will be hoping to make it third time lucky as they get set to face Liverpool in the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League.



The two sides have met each other on three previous occasions in Europe's premier club competition, with two of those encounters coming at the last four stage.


Liverpool have emerged victorious over the two legs on both of those occasions, going on to lift the trophy in an epic final against Milan in 2005, before falling short against the same opponents two years later.


If the last six European meetings between the two sides are anything to go by then there is unlikely to be a goal fest at Anfield on Tuesday, as only three goals have been scored during those games.


It should be an intriguing battle on Merseyside though as the competition's most potent attack, Liverpool with 26 goals, attempt to breach the tightest defence - Chelsea have conceded just four so far.


Both teams also boast plenty of Champions League pedigree among their ranks, as their squads each contain six players who have lifted the trophy before.


With the game seemingly almost impossible to call, both sides' recent form in Europe would also suggest that the tie is delicately poised.


Liverpool have won their last four Champions League games at Anfield, scoring 18 goals in the process, while Chelsea have lost only one of their last 10 in the competition.



Gerrard back


The Reds had been sweating on the fitness of their inspirational captain Steven Gerrard in the run up to the game, but he has now been declared fit to lead them into battle.


Gerrard completed a full training session at Melwood on Monday, and afterwards manager Rafa Benitez was able to confirm that the 27-year-old had recovered from the neck injury which ruled him out of Saturday's Premier League win at Fulham.


Benitez confirmed that he has no new injury problems to deal with, with Daniel Agger and Harry Kewell both out long-term.


The Spanish coach made eight changes at Craven Cottage, with Fernando Torres on the bench.


However, the 30-goal top scorer will face Chelsea, as will Alvaro Arbeloa, Ryan Babel, Dirk Kuyt and Xabi Alonso - who were all left out against the Cottagers.



Lampard returns


While Liverpool will be happy to have Gerrard back among their ranks, Chelsea will be equally as delighted to see Frank Lampard rejoin their squad for the first leg encounter.


The Chelsea vice-captain has missed the club's last two matches to be at the bedside of his mother Pat, who is ill in hospital with pneumonia.


Chelsea will definitely be without goalkeeper Carlo Cudicini (hamstring), while striker Didier Drogba remains doubtful with a knee complaint.


Midfielder Michael Essien is another who will miss out as he must serve a suspension after picking up a second yellow card in the knockout stages during the Blues' quarter-final success over Fenerbahce.


COME ON CHELSEA...1-1 :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

I send my deepest condolescenes to Frank Lampard and the family..on the news of his mother's death..My thoughts are with you. :(

Grant planning without ace

Lampard, who featured in Tuesday's 1-1 draw with Liverpool, is on compassionate leave following the death of his mother.


Grant believes Chelsea are a close-knit club and says it is down to Lampard when he wants to return.


When asked if Lampard would miss the crucial game against The Red Devils, he told Sky Sports News: "I think so, but we need to speak to him of course.


"I think football is very important, but how he feels is more important. It's not an easy situation.


"He didn't train today. Our thoughts are with him. We're a close family here at Chelsea.

Ballack keeps Blues in race
Midfielder converts late penalty to haul Chelsea level with United


Michael Ballack sent Chelsea level on points with Manchester United at the top of the Premier League table after a 2-1 win at Stamford Bridge.

The goal sparked emotional scenes as all the Chelsea players held up Frank Lampard's No.8 shirt with the message 'Pat Lampard - R.I.P'. Ballack who had taken his shirt off, was then booked by Wiley.

Blues take title race to the wire

Michael Ballack was again Chelsea's hero as the Blues won 2-0 at Newcastle to take the Premier League title race to the season's final day. The German, whose double against Manchester United last week took them level with their rivals at the top, broke a stubborn Newcastle with a crucial 61st-minute opener at St James' Park.

But it was not until Florent Malouda added a second eight minutes from time that the points were safe as the spirited Magpies did their best to preserve a seven-game unbeaten run.

They had needed the help of the crossbar to keep out John Terry's 53rd-minute header, but had it not been for the Chelsea skipper's goalline clearance 16 minutes before the break, Michael Owen would have fired the home side ahead.

Newcastle had their chances to level as time ran down with Obafemi Martins seeing his blistering effort deflected just wide by Ricardo Carvalho.

However, Chelsea's class was ultimately made to tell on a day when Kevin Keegan was given the best illustration yet of how far his side has to go to compete an a level playing field with the big boys.

Avram Grant's men head into next weekend's clash with Bolton knowing victory might not be enough to lift the trophy if United win at Wigan, because of their inferior goal difference, but they have a chance.

It was perhaps testament to the turnaround in fortunes engineered by Keegan on Tyneside that his opposite number opted to change formation as well as personnel in the search for three points.

Out went Ashley Cole, Claude Makelele, Frank Lampard, Joe Cole, and Salomon Kalou from the side which clinched a place in the Champions League final and in, among others, came Malouda and Nicolas Anelka.

They were deployed in a three-pronged front line either side of Didier Drogba, but such was the tenacity with which the Magpies defended, none of the trio managed to put pressure on goalkeeper Steve Harper.

Indeed, their best chance of the first half fell to Ballack 10 minutes before the break when he ran onto Michael Essien's measured pass, but sliced a left-foot shot harmlessly wide.

In fact, most of the half's better chances fell to Newcastle, who perhaps made more of a lesser share of the possession.

Owen left England team-mate Terry for dead with just six minutes gone to collect the imperious Nicky Butt's pass, but lifted his first-time effort over Petr Cech's crossbar.

But with Martins making life intensely difficult for Paulo Ferreira down the Chelsea right, the Magpies threatened repeatedly and might have taken the lead with 29 minutes gone.

The Nigerian controlled a high ball superbly on his chest for Mark Viduka to stab in a shot which Cech saved, but the rebound seemed to fall invitingly to Owen.

The £17million man steered his shot firmly towards goal but Terry was in exactly the right place at the right time to save his side.

Chelsea responded by pinning Newcastle back inside their own half, but Harper was able to watch long-range efforts from Anelka and Mikel John Obi sail wide of the target, and it was the Magpies who finished the first half the stronger.

Viduka's failure to re-appear after the break - he is due to have an injection for a persistent Achilles problem - prompted Alan Smith's introduction, but it was the visitors who went close when Carvalho headed Malouda's 50th-minute corner wide.

However, Terry went much closer three minutes later as Chelsea started to turn the screw.

Malouda was the provider once again with another right-wing corner, and this time his captain climbed highest to thunder a header against the bar as Newcastle enjoyed a huge slice of good fortune.

But they finally fell behind on the hour when Ballack met Drogba's free-kick unmarked in front of goal to glance home a close-range header.

Lampard replaced Anelka with 24 minutes remaining as Grant adopted his more accustomed 4-4-2 formation, but it was Newcastle who almost hit back as the game entered its final 20 minutes.

First Martins saw Carvalho deflect his shot inches wide with Cech stranded, and then Owen only just failed to connect with Butt's mishit effort in front of goal.

Harper pulled off a smart reaction save to deny Ballack from distance and the game was anything but over.

However, Malouda's neat finish from Lampard's 82nd-minute pass cemented the win as Newcastle's resistance was finally broken

Firstly congratulations to Man Utd...on clinching the league title for the 10th time... :wink: ....I would like to suggest enjoy it cos it's the only Cup you're going to win this season...The Eurpoean cup is coming to the Bridge next week.... :bounce: :mrgreen: :bounce: :mrgreen:

Terry: 'Fingers crossed' for Moscow

Chelsea captain John Terry has vowed to be fit for the Champions League final despite dislocating his elbow in the 1-1 draw with Bolton at Stamford Bridge.

The point ended the Blues' hopes of snatching the Barclays Premier League title from Manchester United, who won 2-0 at Wigan to finish the season two points clear.

Chelsea's afternoon was rocked by Terry's injury and the England defender is now set to rest his elbow in the hope of being fit to lead the side out against United in Moscow on May 21.

He said: "It popped back in before I got to hospital and I need three or four days rest but I should be fit for Moscow, fingers crossed."

But coach Avram Grant will leave it to the medical department to decide if Terry will be fit enough to play.

He said: "John did not break his elbow. But we need to wait and see. We will know if he is fit for the final in a few days. I don't want to see the day when John Terry is not confident of being fit. He is strong enough to recover but we will wait and see."

Grant was also concerned about the fitness of Didier Drogba who got a kick on his left knee 10 minutes from time against Bolton.

Good luck john on your swift recovery...hopefully fit for the Cup final next week!!! :)
