We did play well yesterday, the big 3 got alot of praise, but I don't think any of them were at their best. Mata has been ill this week, but still managed to decide the game, which is a sign of just how much class he has. I agree about it being strange he doesn't play much for Spain. Silva and Cazorla seem to get more playing time, they're great players, but Mata is the best of the 3 imo. As for missing the Champions League not being huge because of the Abramovich money, i'm not so sure about that one! Cavani and Falcao will be offered £200,000 a week from Madrid, City and Chelsea, being the only club not in the Champions League means we will miss out. Will Lewandowski leave Dortmund for a team not in the Champions League, when he could go to Juventus or Man Utd? These are problems. Same for Mourinho, an open cheque book at PSG and a run at another European Cup, or coming back to Chelsea and a Thursday game away to some Slovakian side? It's an easy choice.
