Memory lane: Dwayne De Rosario’s winner against Chelsea

Today, the MLS All Stars take on Chelsea. And yes, the All Stars beat the Blues, 1-0 in 2006. The Blues were not too shabby then coached under the Special One and boasting the likes of Didier Drogba but Dwayne De Rosario had other plans in store for them. The Canadian midfielder is this year’s All Stars captain and he heads a line up with David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Jay De Merit, and Landon Donovan who have had experience playing against some of Chelsea’s squad.
I happened to go for the PSG vs Chelsea game on Sunday at Yankee Stadium and the Blues were quite unimpressive in the first half. It was only when they introduced Ramires, Terry, Cole, and Marko Marin that their play perked up. There was more excitement getting the Mexican wave started than the stuff happening on the pitch. The prawn sandwich brigade were out there in full force but it was the handful of PSG supporters who were more vocal and passionate about their team.

  1. Always figured DDR would make a move to Europe as he seemed a cut above the rest in MLS. Plus, he always seemed come thru in the big games.

  2. Kev, De Rosario reminds me of a more attacking Juan Sebastian Veron, someone who could control the pace of the game and open it up with his passing ability. He could have left when he was at the Earthquakes or Dynamo at his peak. Now he’s 34 and its too late.
