Chelsea v Bayern Munich (CL Final) 19/05/12 KO 19:45 BST

3,271 posts in this topic

What a night this will be. At the moment I don't care who we get, i'm just glad to be there. Realistically though Bayern would obviously be the "easier" draw, but we all know it'll be Chelsea vs Jose it's just written in the stars.

Have to hope against hope that Cahill and Luiz are back for that, else we will literally have no CBs at all with Terry & Ivan suspended. Bosingwa has actually done okay at CB so he could be one but the 2nd? Who knows... Drogba?!

I know the likelihood of getting a ticket is as close to 0 as possible, but I'm really tempted to go to Munich anyway and watch it in a bar or something with the rest of the Chelsea fans without tickets, soak up the atmosphere, etc...

Ahhh, I'm still buzzing from last night, I can't wait for the final.

P.S: Torres I love you all is forgiven.

I'm buzzing as well, and I'm excited for the final.

I'm really hoping that Cahill and Luiz will be healthy for it. If those two are healthy, we could be ok. The match is in 3 weeks time, so hoping they can recover by then.

Lamps definitely has to start. This is his moment. He will provide the leadership in JT's absence. Cahill will take over the back line as the mini-JT.

I can't make it to Munich, but I might reach out to some of the locals here to watch the match. I want to be surrounded by Chelsea fans win or lose!

Some weeks back I started a thread here predicting the champions league final to be between the blues and Bayern.My thread was deleted. Well, let's see if I won't be correct today

Didn't really find anywhere else this would be appropriate, but here are the starting line ups tonight.

Real Madrid: Bayern:

Casillas Neuer

Arbeloa Lahm (yellow)

Pepe Boateng (yellow)

Ramos Batstuber (yellow)

Marcelo Alaba (yellow)

Khedira Schweinsteiger

Xabi Alonso Gustavo (yellow)

Di Maria Ribery

Ronaldo Kroos (yellow)

Ozil Robben

Benzema Gomez

Not too sure about Real madrids yellow cards, but Bayern have so many. Praying for a huge brawl with a few red cards, but then again you want the CL final to have the best players.. :rolleyes:

And of course I missed it because the ITV stream insists on 3 thirty second adverts before I can watch anything :/

I want to play Madrid in the final - I know they are the more "difficult" team but don't want to play Munich in their own stadium. And I have a very large soft spot still for Jose. So I just felt very dirty wanting Ronaldo to score - realised afterwards I should've wanted him to miss but someone else score later. Never mind now I can concentrate on him getting sent off so he misses the final.

Are we discussing the other semi here?

Penalty to in 5 minutes. 1-0 Ronaldo.

Alaba misses the final if his team get there

Harsh penalty I thought - it hit his arm which he was leaning on on the ground. Hardly intentional.

We certainly wouldn't have been awarded a penalty like that, do we really want them in the final...?

My head says no but my heart wants to meet Jose there.

Essien can play CB if needed.

I like Essien and all but he would get destroyed v the likes of Maria, Ronaldo, Ozil.

I'd rather win... the only silver lining if Bayern don't get through - we won't have to face Robben or Ribery. Just Ronaldo then.

Yeah of course goes without saying that I would rather we won - but by beating Madrid rather than Munich - as I said my head wants Munich and I'm trying to get my heart to see sense and follow my head!

Dont underestimate Di Maria who Real basically bought to replace Robben and he's probably on the same standard. And Ronaldo is better than Ribery. Anyway you look at it Bayern is a better option in the final.
