When Chelsea faced Tromso in an Arctic blizzard

tromsø chelsea 1997

He'd had an excellent game, always looking dangerous. As Dan teed his shot up he was fouled by a defender, the ball took a lucky push into Vialli's path, and he did well to score from an acute angle. Actually, the weather did seem to have deteriorated. With two major European trophies in the space of just four months, Chelsea were arguably for at least one season the best team in Europe. We had to wait a disgusting 15 minutes for the next goal, Vialli's hat trick and his best goal. We were in with the locals but everyone was full of festive fun.

We turned around and quickly went back and bought them. In the second part of this feature series, Chelsea endured snow blizzards in Norway, hostile crowds in Spain and an unforgettable comeback at Stamford Bridge — which all lead to a night to remember in Stockholm. Goals from Dan Petrescu, Gianfranco Zola, Frank Leboeuf and a hat-trick from Vialli lead to a 7-1 win on the night and a spectacular way to show your progression into the next round. What's more, they almost scored with the last kick of the game, a thunderous shot from 30 yards that cannoned off the bar, Land completely beaten. I followed Chelsea in Europe a lot.

Heading into the last minute two goals behind, we were trying to cross our frozen fingers that it would be replayed. In this episode, host Tom is joined by fellow contributor Mikey. Let us know via our official and via personal Twitter as well. I took the girls training instead and the sun was shining. Finally, great respect to Tromsø, who never let their heads drop. I had an international hotel directory with a dozen listings and, like a desperate football manager on transfer deadline day, I stayed late at the office one night huddled over the fax machine.

Between snow flurries we meandered around the small, nondescript Arctic outpost on the hunt for tickets. That was it until a few minutes before half time, when Tromsø scored, against the run of play. Chelsea were braced for the cold when they travelled to Norway for the first leg, but there was no way of preparing themselves for the blizzard that swept into the Alfheim Stadion midway through the match. Det hører med til historien at Tromsø fikk grisebank på Stamford Bridge, i en kamp som endte hele 7-1 til London-laget. Well, on paper at least. The game was played at a fairly relaxed and patient pace a pre-requisite in Europe, apparently , and after all Tromsø are part-timers, but if Chelsea played with the sort of composure the showed this evening more often, we'd be hard to beat. Ten už za Eagles hrál na jaře a ve 13 zápasech nastřílel 6 branek.

Italianske Gianluca Vialli så derimot ut til å takle det tunge snødrevet som lavet ned over Alfheim stadion, og sørget for at Chelsea avsluttet kampen på en brukbar måte, med to mål. To be honest, I thought we might win 1-0 or possibly 1-1, but never 7-1. With the match being played at the Råsunda Stadium in Stockholm, the match proved to be a difficult one for all players due to the poor condition of the pitch and wastefulness of both teams, most notably in the first half. Interu Milán vypadl na delší dobu Alexis Sánchez, načež by mohl v lednu zareagovat na transferovém poli. Zraněný se z reprezentačního srazu vrátí Andreas Christensen, dánský obránce Chelsea si ze souboje se Švýcarskem odnesl zraněné tříslo a po návratu do Londýna ho čeká podrobné vyšetření. The face value was the equivalent of around 15 pounds and they wanted almost double, so we declined and carried on walking. It was a campaign that would end in triumph with victory over Stuttgart eight months later.

Tromsø 3

It was hard to see ten feet in front of you, never mind play football, and great mounds of snow were banked pitch-side as the stewards feverishly swept like Cinderella on speed. Everyone was happy: they earned a famous victory against the big boys — only their second ever win in Europe — and we were sure we would overturn the tie in London. And this tie turned to be an unforgettable classic. It was a shame that Tromsø had to battle on with ten men, but I honestly think that Chelsea would have wiped the floor with them if they'd had 12 players on the pitch. Eventually one of the hotels answered and confirmed our booking. After their encounter however, Tromsø became very memorable for reasons you would never expect.

Londýnský klub v krátké době přišel o třetího hráče, mimo hru jsou i N'Golo Kante a Andreas Christensen. No snow, no freezing fog, no driving rain, no swirling maelstrom of sleet and hail. Five minutes later, Vialli popped up with another goal: Dan P had run through Tromsø's defence with Vialli backing him up to his right. It was an exciting time to be a Chelsea supporter with the likes of Gianluca Vialli, Gianfranco Zola, Mark Hughes, Roberto di Matteo and Frank Leboeuf in the team. Ole Martin Årst ga derimot nordmennene den avgjørende scoringen, og sluttresultatet lød da 3-2. At any rate, this geezer Johansen, who was definitely their best player, controlled the ball well just outside the area, and his shot was perfectly placed inside the post. .

A lot of teams would have put up the shutters after going 2 up, but the boys attacked all night. Chorvatský záložník Chelsea si z reprezentačního srazu přiveze zranění, přivodil si ho během souboje s Walesem a charakter problému není znám. With the home crowd creating a raucous atmosphere, you could hear a pin drop when Pasquale Luiso scored in the first half-hour to put Vicenza in the lead on the night and 2-0 up on aggregate. Stále totiž nevyléčil zranění třísel, které si přivodil před týdnem při rozcvičce před reprezentačním zápasem Francie s Islandem. Any excuse and I was off. Even the weather had cleared up a bit.

Outside we were approached by the two worst ticket touts in history. The boys were absolutely rampant. Bob Di Matteo pushed the ball out to Den on the wing, Den crossed to the far post where Dan the Man ran on to it with his napper. In this episode, host Nischal is joined by fellow contributor Ameya. Then with twenty minutes left to go in the second, Gianfranco Zola — who was nursing a injury and clearly not 100% fit — came on for Flo and within thirty seconds, became the hero. Podle italských médií se Nerazzurri zajímají o Oliviera Girouda z Chelsea. Thanks Tromsø for trying, and thanks Chelsea for the pride you showed.

Do péče lékařů se musí svěřit Mateo Kovačić. I had been a Blues fan for more than two decades. I've seen teams give up after being 2 or 3 goals down, but Tromsø were defiant till the end. Our first stop was the team hotel not hard to locate, the only four-star establishment in town , and inside I spotted Chelsea managing director Colin Hutchinson. Fans clung to each other, inching along the pavement as parents reached out to grab their kids before they glided off into the polar night. Chelsea were awarded a free kick in Zola territory, and he duly obliged with a perfect chip over the wall into the top right corner of the net. The following year he became the first foreign manager to win the trophy.
