I posted up on the semi-finals' actions the other day - and today, it is all about the final.
The 2011 Barclays Asia Trophy was the fifth edition of the Premier League Asia Trophy - and it was brought in by #TuneTalk - the cheapest mobile prepaid service in Malaysia! The trophy was contested by Blackburn Rovers, Chelsea, Aston Villa and Kitchee - dont get me wrong, I'm still a die hard supporter of Manchester United and that will never change!
Both Kitchee of Hong Kong and Blackburn Rovers lost their semi-final games - and they were up first in the 3rd-4th placing. It may have been a game fighting for 3rd placing - but both teams gave it their best to give the fans and spectators a good game.
Blackburn Rovers won the fixture 3-0 - with goals from Mauro Formica, David Dunn and a Nick Blackman penalty.
Mauro Formica for Blackburn Rovers.
After the game, then came the final - between Chelsea and Aston Villa.
In the 1st minute itself - young 18 year old Josh McEachran scored the opener for Chelsea - and set the stadium alive - mostly chanting "Chelsea Chelsea". Then in the 2nd half - Torres came on and scored Chelsea's 2nd - to lead Chelsea to a comfortable 2-0 win. =)
I believe the scoreline wont be that easy for Chelsea if they had played EPL Champions Manchester United... but that, we shall wait in this coming EPL season to see how they fare... Lets hope that United will wrap up the League by March or something. We shall see...
All in - I think it was a great tournament - and Tune Talk should hold more events like this! *woots* and next up - bring on the Red Devils!!!
