John Arne RiiseNever will I be Chelsea’s greatest fan, but I may have been confused as one when watching John Arne Riise put the ball in to the back of his own net this evening. As the clock reached the 94th minute, Chelsea, who had been dominated for much of the match, broke in to the Liverpool half. Kalou whipped in a cross which Riise, who is painfully left footed, didn’t feel confident in dealing with on his right foot, so instead opted to swoop down, heading the ball in to the roof of his own net.

The dippers have had more than their fair share of luck so far in the competition, with a penalty awarded for and not against them in the quarters versus Arsenal, and horrendous refereeing saw them play against the 11 men of Inter Milan for just 80 minutes of the 180 in the two legs in the round before.

Now Riise, far from a fans favourite in Merseyside, may have scored the goal that knocks them out of the Champions League, with the last touch of the game.

Wow, you just couldn’t write this stuff.

Fancy laughing at the dippers? Join us.
