Subject: RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind)
I watched the match and thought it an excellent and exciting game.
Norwich gave Chelsea a hug shock and in my opinion I thought that Norwich was the better side in which they were very organised at the back and extremely dangerous on the breaks.
I agreed with the penalty decisions. Norwich were unlucky when they struck the post and fully deserved the excellent late goal.
Pity about the penalty. I agree that it is not a good way to decide a match.....but I can't think of a better way.
I n rugby we tried a few ways to get a decider in the few games that ended in a draw. We had a " shootout" in that we played on until one side scored. Don't think this would work for football as it would become difficult to score as the teams packed their defences.
Well done Norwich.
