Chelsea Takes Carling Cup After Terry Hospitalised

 

Chelsea have taken the England Cup final 2-1 against Arsenal. In a game that saw captain John Terry taken to hospital after being kicked in the face, and Arsenal dominate for most of the match and still lose, it's no wonder it ended in a brawl.

Terry seemed to be knocked unconscious after he was kicked by Arsenal's Diaby. An oxygen mask was applied to help him breathe before he was taken to hospital. Didier Drogba scored both Chelsea goals and 17-year-old Theo Walcott scored for Arsenal.

In the 11 minutes of over time at the end of the game, a brawl erupted, which saw three red cards and two yellows handed out. The managers of both teams also got involved in the fight.

... and this is quite misleading.

The injury to JT was not part of the reason for the brawl. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Players and staff from both teams were anxious to help. Everyone realised it was an accident, and there was no blame issued to Diaby. Everyone was concerned for him, and thankfully he was back with his team mates to celebrate the win and travel home.

Also, the managers did not get involved in the fight. They entered the field of play to calm down the players. It is not like they threw punches of the own or anything.

Just to clear it up.

Oh, and Com'on the Blues. ;)

is misleading, the manager helped break up the fight they didn't get evolved in it.
