3.Bullying Evra In The Community Shield
A moment I will never forget ! Chelsea and Manchester United were both looking for a winner in this community shield game,then Ballack threw Evra to the ground…It turned out to be the build up to Chelsea’s 2nd goal.I bet Evra is glad that he has now left the EPL.

2.THAT Pass To Drogba In The Carling Cup Final
Chelsea were trailing 1-0 to Arsenal when Theo Walcott opened the scoring early in the game,but it didn’t last too long.Michael Ballack made one of the most memorable defence-splitting pass to Drogba,which the latter was able to convert
1.Scoring A Brace Against Manchester United
Undoubtely,the best Michael Ballack moment in a Chelsea shirt ! In this game,Ballack played “the lampard role” because Frank’s mother died and couldn’t attend,well Michael didn’t disappoint,he scored a very powerful header which Van Der Sar had no chance to stop,the celebration was the most memorable,Chelsea players gathered and raised a Chelsea T-shirt which says : Pat Lampard (Frank’s mother) and the number 8..
Then he scored the winning goal from a cool penalty kick.
Au revoir,Michael ! You will never be forgotten by the Chelsea supporters hope you will do at your new club very well.
