Captain John Terry Retains UWCC Title For Chelsea

Barney Corkhill@@BarneyCorkhillSenior Writer IOctober 23, 2008

The sixth game in the history of Barney Corkhill's Unofficial World Club Championship (UWCC) took place last night as AS Roma travelled to Stamford Bridge to take on a weakened Chelsea side.

Still, Chelsea showed that a weakened side for them is a formidable side for anyone else on Saturday when they thrashed Middlesbrough 5-0.

Could they put in a similar performance against Roma?

Prior to the match, Luiz Felipe Scolari stressed that a result is more important than a good performance, despite the great football Chelsea have been playing so far this season.

And a result is exactly what he got.

Chelsea's captain, John Terry, found the net with an increasingly rare goal for the centre-back, to give Chelsea the 1-0 win.

The result means that Chelsea are in the driving seat of their Champions League group, with Roma, Cluj, and Bordeaux battling it out for second place.

It also means that Chelsea keep hold of the UWCC, something they have not let go of since becoming the first champions.

In the last article's poll, 81.8 percent of voters got the answer right, saying that Roma wouldn't beat Chelsea to claim the UWCC.

History

Chelsea 4-0 Portsmouth

Stoke 0-2 Chelsea

CFR Cluj 0-0 Chelsea

Chelsea 2-0 Aston Villa

Middlesbrough 0-5 Chelsea

Chelsea 1-0 AS Roma

Chelsea's next title defence comes against fellow undefeated team Liverpool in a top of the table clash. Could Liverpool go to Stamford Bridge and get a result, or at least become the first team to score against Chelsea in UWCC history?!
