Welcome to the topsy-turvy world of Chelsea!
This time one week ago the blog resembled a collective of virtual sighing and mud slinging at the deficiencies of our ageing team of Chelsea Pensioners.
And today, well surely we are worthy of a different atmosphere after a 12-1 aggregate over two potentially tricky encounters.
Both of which were enhanced by the scoring prowess of our, now, third highest ever scorer - Frank Lampard.
151 Not Out
It is often discussed between myself and the rabble who sit around me at the Bridge that Lampard could well be our best player in the history of the club.
I have always been partial to that viewpoint because he is for sure my favourite player of all time, and with his goalscoring record plus his impressive haul of medals the stats are in his favour.
To have scored 17 goals this season, where even Frank himself couldn't deny he has been slightly off, is an exceptional feat - especially with seven more games to play and the possibility of further penalties to knock in with consummate ease.
I think the real key to his goalscoring, and his better performances this season, have been the exclusion of Michael Ballack from the side - and the creative skill of Deco in replacement.
Although I am a fan of Ballack's physicality, it is clear that Lampard thrives when he isn't shadowed by an all too similar style of player - a la Gerrard in the England team, something which has been printed far too much over the past few years.
Deco, who is quickly becoming an excellent squad player, but possibly not good enough to warrant his name on the teamsheet week in week out, had a great game on Saturday and was singled out by Lampard for praise after the 7-1 rout.
It remains to be seen whether Deco will stay, but I think that Saturday proved that he does indeed have a role to play at Chelsea and would become a handy squad player next season. The same applies to Ballack, he may need to be replaced in the first team but again would be an immense addition to either the bench or for backup in case of injuries.
The reason Ballack is maybe not having such a great time is that he is better employed in a more defensive role, something now of course described as the Makelele role. A position he is comfortable with at an International level, and one that becomes natural as a once forward flourishing player ages.
Coming back to Lampard though, he will always remain in the Chelsea hall of fame, and quite rightly so. It would be incredible if he can achieve the difficult task of surpassing Bobby Tambling by knocking in 52 more goals for the club. In my head I'm doing the maths, it isn't the impossible task!
