Barca v Chelski

Anyone been watching? Most amusing.
Forest

Cahill was very good tonight and that nobhead Cole too.
grunt

Thought Drogba had a massive game, and also his best risible falling over display in ages. in fact they were all excellent. Can't envisage the same in the return leg though.

On the occasion of this momentous year, encompassing Aunt Liz's... I mean Her Majesty's diamond jubilee, the London Olympics, the sesquicentennial anniversary of the establishment of the Internal Revenue Service in the USA,  the centennial of the birth of Woody Guthrie, the Death of Emperor Meiji of Japan and the birth of Milton Friedman, together with the 75th anniversary of the launch of Spam luncheon meat, that the nation will join together in willing Chelsea to be the ultimate victors of this year's European Champions' League.

There again, maybe they won't.
Forest

I hope Barca stuff the Chelsea scum at the Nou Camp
grunt

I think it would be in keeping with most of those landmarks.

In a nation of 60 million, or whatever, it is to be anticipated that there may be one or two voices dissenting from the general norm. Mainly those of homosexuals.

This great nation, uniting under a common cause... the next winner of the "get me out of this celebrity x factor voice on ice house..."

Thought Chels were brilliant and yep Cahill and Cole outstanding. In a similar vein to the Pro Newcastle stance on here a few days ago i have a sneaking low lying token nod of appreciation to them. More to the point i am getting heartily sick of people telling me how i HAVE to gush at Barca and the way they play. Yeah they are brilliant but if everybody played like that what a shit game it would be. Chels were equally good in a different way and the game i saw with us against West Ham a few week ago was equally as watchable, I hope Chels stiff them

Right with you on all that... an unusual feeling isn't it? Doesn't feel quite right somehow.

The 2 holding mids also were brilliant at making Messi look ordinary too, so well organised.

Of course I went for a piss and missed the goal though

If this is all a preamble to JT breaking his leg in the final whilst missing a sitter then maybe BUT and its a big BUT, in order to believe the God of Football still cares for the game Chelski should never ever win the CL!
Grind

It'll make their forthcoming gubbing in Barcelona that more sweet to watch.
Kevin Khatchadourian

Don't care....If it is not Leeds or Engerland I can't raise too much enthusiasm, and even that is tough these days, unless Spurts are getting thumped.
Grind

Didn't they go down the shitter immediately after 'arry was named as the likely successor to Crapello?

He's a shoo-in now.

I think the God of Football will be torn because any god worth his salt will hate Busquets, and also smug proponents of tippy-tappy. And Gary Linekar.
Grind

I really don't like Real Madrid or Bayern Munich at all either, so it'll be a case of the team I least despise being booed marginally less in the final.

I grudgingly admit that Barcelona are fun to watch for about ten minutes or so, but it does my head in if I have to sit through an entire game unless, of course, the opposition decides to kick them up in the air at regular intervals.

I do like Puyol. He's a bit ace in a "Look at my crazy head" kind of way - plus he seems to be an honest player.

How the fuck did Mascherano end up at Barcelona? Is there some "You must have at least one player who plays like a mong" UEFA  law?
Late Doors

We can expect a UEFA Fine then anyday for abusing the quota system.

Barca fans seemed an odd bunch, looked like they should have been in  a M n Ms advert all clean cut and colourful. Couldn't see them taking it to the  HHs anyway

I wonder if there are any Headhunters left? I guess there must be, but I can't imagine them taking too well to all the recent converts.

If they win you can bet Bates will claim the credit.

Deserved first for Barca tonight from Busquets.

COME ON !!!

Oh dear Terry red carded.

Unbelievably Chelsea pull one back against the run of play. Only putting off the inevitable demolition.

Final score 2-2, Chelsea go through 3-2 on aggregate.

Well done to Englands 6th best team making it to the final of the Champions League.

How the flip did they win that? Scored 2 goals with 10 men against 'world's best ever team'. Love it.

Not a Chelski fan but I am a Barca fan yet I still wanted em to go through.

Top cunt Terry shows his metal again, how can this man lead our national team, knobhead.

Well done though Chelsea, beating the best club side [unbeaten] over two legs is no mean feat.

Two fantastic games, pity being the Final will be like a chess match with no one wanting to make a mistake.

Bayern to win.
Late Doors

Getting a result in the Nou Camp to go through to the final against Bayern Munich, and a new manager. Who do they think they are.

Nah i want em to win it, its mental i know but i cant feel the hatred for them anymore. Ronaldo on the other hand, they say you would have to go a long way to beat him. Well i would, barefooted on broken glass. Im a bit worried its turning into something a bit serious, i fecking hate him with a vengeance

'Kin'el Bilbao have won it at the death, some ace semis this last two week or what

If Chelsea do win, would that also mean Spuds don't qualify for the Europa League (as the table now stands)?

Now that would be proper amusing.

That might just trump the banned Terry allowed to lift the trophy factor

The team in white celebrated wildly. Reduced to 10 men in their semi-final second leg on 24 April at the Camp Nou, they'd held on for an improbable 3-2 aggregate victory over Barcelona to reach the European Cup final.

Earlier in the season they'd looked in disarray. An upstart young manager who was supposed to oversee the rejuvenation of the squad had been ousted after alienating a core of senior players, but a safe pair of hands everybody assumed was a short-term appointment had arrived, soothed egos and reawakened some of the old fire.

The league was beyond them, but doggedly they'd scrapped their way through to within one game of the prize – the greatest prize – that had eluded them through all their years of success. In that final that side in white faced Bayern Munich. Undone by some scandalous refereeing, they lost and were never the same again.

The similarities with Leeds United in 1974-75 and Chelsea's success at the Camp Nou 29 years later are striking. Of course the Barcelona then, despite the presence of Rinus Michels in the dug-out and Johan Cruyff and Johan Neeskens on the pitch, did not have quite the aura of the present-day side. And Leeds, having won 2-1 in the first leg, scored their away goal early, Peter Lorimer latching on to a Joe Jordan knockdown after eight minutes.

But then too, Barcelona were disappointing. "They did not spread their attacks wide enough to worry their opponent," wrote David Lacey in the Guardian. "It was a strangely muted performance from a team who many people had thought would sweep all before them in Europe this season." But almost as soon Barcelona had levelled on the night through Manuel Clares after 69 minutes, Gordon McQueen was sent off. "McQueen played Clares with such vitality," Lacey wrote, "that it was nearly a minute before the Barcelona player could be brought round, and he played to the end mopping his wounded head with a pad … it is a pity that on the threshold of their greatest triumph they should now be faced with problems caused by one of those irritating losses of control which have so often marred the club's success."

The correspondences between two semi-finals played on the same date 29 years apart are coincidence, of course, but what is significant is the underlying similarity between their side now and Leeds then. André Villas-Boas is not as abrasive as Brian Clough, and almost certainly didn't gather the Chelsea players together on the training field, as Clough did at Leeds, and tell them to throw their medals in the bin because they'd won them by cheating. Yet there were training-ground spats and the sort of confrontational team meetings that characterised Clough's time at Leeds.

If Spurts finish 4th and Chelsea win the Champs League I have my speak for whinging Spurts tossers ready....You weren't good enough to qualify for the Champs League final, you weren't good enough to finish 3rd in the league, them's the rules. Stop fucking whining and get over it....BTW how is Bale settling in at Barca, and Modrric at Chelsea?
Plastic Man

I am given to understand that Tottenham Hotspur and Newcastle United are concerned that if Chelsea win the Champions League, that they may miss out on the opportunity of playing in the Champions League.

They appear to be aggrieved that a club that has won the Champions League has an automatic right to defend their title, in preference to a side that finishes second or lower in their national league.

Perhaps both clubs might wish to reflect on the name of the competition that they may be denied access to.

The Champions League.

Neither club has been a champion of anything in a very long time.

I was going to switch off before they lifted the trophy but I figured it would be all over telly for the next week so it would be unavoidable. Usually you can feel summat positive for a winning team whoever they are but watching the shifty-eyed Terry and the club chairman lift the European Cup I felt totally indifferent.
Late Doors

Ha, welcome btw, I was routing for them all the way and was glad they won but did actually switch off before the presentation.

They've won it with some outstanding if not very exciting disciplined organised football with some fantastic underdog results throughout the competition. Cole was immense last night despite always having to cover the Luiz.

Right , can we go back to hating them again now

Hulk and Hazard on the way. Can't wait for Gary Lineker's jokes.

Apparently Spurs were also interested in both players.

Unfortunately, and perhaps not unexpectedly (in light of the gentleman's self-declared dyslexia which came to light during recent investigations into tax-misunderstandings), Tottenham missed out when Harry Redknapp inadvertently went to Hull to an Eddie Izzard book-signing.

I bet he didn't pay for the book there either.
