Bucharest is buzzing tonight! Chelsea strutted into town and will scuttle out again with yet another pathetic performance under their belts. Benny Benitez will, no doubt, complain about the penalty decision but, from where I was sitting, it was fully justified.
Torres was shit again. Chelsea were shit again. Benitez's tactics were shit again.
Tickets were sold out within two hours of the draw. The good people of Romania hold English football in awe but, if Sky are not careful, the world will wake up to the Premiership chimera very soon. No teams in the last eight of the Champions League, Chelsea struggling in the footballing backwater of Bucharest...it seems the Premiership, like every dog, has had its day.
How many stars remain? Bale. And Suarez? And how long will they hang around?
How did that Mary Hopkins song go? "Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end, we'd sing and dance for ever and a day."
