Today's Aston Villa-Chelsea match held many futures in its outcome: UEFA Champions League dreams for Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, and attempts to avoid relegation for Villa. The day would end up being even more dramatic than that, though.
Chelsea hero Frank Lampard delivered an 88th-minute goal for the Blues, one that essentially guaranteed their continued involvement in the lucrative UCL while at the same time setting the club record for goals with his 203rd. He then was mobbed by Idiots On The Field, who had to be torn off him by stewards. [ESPN2]
