    If we signed him I wouldn't even worry about a Madrid or Barca dream, both those teams have a long effort to rebuild and they just don't have the financial power these days to buy up the best talent.

    Completely new here; well, not new, I have been browsing these forums for years but in a non contributing way! A freeloader if you like haha.
    In my honest opinion, if the club really want to sign him, they will. They have the funds available and there is ZERO chance that Dortmund will refuse an offer which is double his buy-out clause. They would be utterly stupid to do so; it's not an Eden Hazard situation where he was sold for an excessive amount, he didn't have a buy out clause in his final year- Haaland does, if they didn't accept an offer they would be throwing £60-70million down the drain in what has been the most difficult financial crisis football has seen since WW2. The ONLY things that stop this deal happening are either Chelsea not putting a big offer down or Haaland. If Haaland wants it, wages are met, agent fees and a big offer is placed; he will sign for Chelsea. Dortmund will not hang on and lose that money. It just simply won't happen. In a non-global pandemic world, maybe. 2021? No chance.

    In my eyes he's above Ivanovic now, absolute legend and one of the best professionals that I've ever seen, the absolute role model. I still remember, I think it was Jose that said something like "give me 11 Azpilicueta's and I'll win everything".

    I thought we would win after losing to Leicester in the FA final just bet on the wrong score.
    I think Tuchel did the decent thing then and played Kepa yet Mendy would have saved that shot and then after that thought we would beat City yet not sure how.
    Surprised Fernandinho didn't start, surprised how good James was marshalling Sterling and also Chilwell on Mahrez.
    Werner's form did not improve with playing in the final his finishing was still atrocious and yet we had luck in other ways, Rudiger's freak bodycheck on KDB taking out their best creative player if that is not luck I don't know what is.
    Havertz's goal had more fortune, in the EPL think that would have been offside courtesy of him pointing forwards indicating where he wanted Mount's ball.
    The other instance of luck like Azpi's clearance from under the goal posts, and people diving on the ground to cut off crosses in the penalty area. 
    Great to see the team celebrating afterwards looking like a real unified squad, even Kepa putting an arm around Aguero...........

    That's what I was thinking, one more CL and we are the 2nd most successful British team in Europe.  As it stands we've got 7 European Trophies, Manchester United have 6, but obviously their extra CL is worth more than our Europa/Cup Winners Cups (still special nights mind).  I don't like to be big headed, but I reckon our name is on the Super Cup, There's no way we can lose 4 on the bounce surely?

    Hard to believe that we are European Champions. Yesterday at this time to be honest I didn't have any nerves for the match, went to Blackpool, stroll down the prom and back in time for the kickoff. once we scored the nerves really kicked in big time and whilst enjoying the match the butterflies had kicked in. 
    Finals are won by small margins on the whole. TT got his selections and tactics spot on. Pep possibly more worried than he had shown, out thought himself with his weird team selection.
    To a man everyone did their job on the pitch. The defenders get the plaudits though we defended as a team from the front.
    Timo couldn't hit a cows a*se with a banjo, his runs though created panic in City's defence
    Our wingbacks won their personal battles, pushing City into an already congested middle
    Kante again had a fine game, he is one of those players we will appreciate even more when he eventually leaves/retires
    We all wanted academy players in the first team, they are there on merit. Great credit should go to Neil Bath and his team
    In 2012 we enjoyed the win, it had been a long time coming but always had a hint of luck with it. This title was won on merit. We performed in the group stages when it mattered, dominated the knockout stage games and won as the better team on the night in the final.

    He was unstoppable against Real Madrid in the semi final and against City in the final. What can you ask more from a player that started the season with difficulties, new season with Chelsea, 21 years old with 70m price on his back.
    Future is bright, keep it going Kai!

    Hi all, Just wanted to drop in and wish you lot good luck and hope for a good game (The good luck was given as I wasn't sure whether it was good/bad etiquette for an opposing fan to give/not give that on the host teams forum). 😉
    The reason for my long hiatus on here was that I went through some personal issues for a year or so, Stopped following football altogether and then when I did, I never knew when the right time to drop back in here was. This occasion has obviously provided me with a very good reason to drop by and say hello.
    My thoughts on the game, I think there's two types of games we see, A. It's not a cagey match and we suck you out of your defensive shape, Going punch for punch and end up winning 3-1/3-2 or B. You tactically do us in the first half and keep it tight, Grow in confidence and then do us in the second half.  I can't see you lot outscoring us or going toe to toe as that would be suicide for you and in both previous victories of yours was not how you won. On the other hand, I can not see us winning in a game where patience is required, Our entire game plan is built on dominating the opponent, If the opponent has not been dominated either mentally or on the score line by 60/70 minutes, We're usually in trouble.

    I’ve not rated them all season, that performance backs that view up. A European final and they were sh*t against second rate opposition. OGS is a fraud and Rashford needs to focus on his football more, I think his head is thinking about some prime minister election campaign these days.
    never has a runners up spot in the league flattered a team more.
