So the dust has just about settled, the fug of the post-match celebrations almost cleared… And as we rise, rub the sleep from our eyes and promise ourselves we’ll never drink again (or at least not until we’ve had some lunch), the realisation dawns…
CHELSEA ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE!
To celebrate the event the boys in blue (both the Chelsea squad and the police) took to the streets of south west London to parade the trophy and, while they were there, close off all available routes to Accident and Emergency departments.
Simon took himself, and his hangover, and headed off to join in the celebrations and document them for good measure. All on a poorly foot that he had managed to injure in a particularly nasty altercation with a coffee table. Now that’s dedication!
For our American friends, this is soccerball we’re talking about. It’s what that Beckham chap does when he’s not being photographed in his pants.
This is what he saw, including Brazilian centre back David Luiz who appears to have come up with a profitable sideline.
