Great European nights

JT and Frank said that last night goes in at the top of Chelsea's great European nights...

It was a fantastic result, but this article from the telegraph bought back some fantastic memories...i would have also added vicenza at home to the list, although very glad john spencer gets the credit he deserves.

For me the barcelona game (in 04 with jose in charge) was immense, 3v0 up with a final score of 4v2 - I think that tops last night.

Also the first leg of the first Barca game in 2000 when we eventually lost made me so proud. To be competing at that level again was an amazing feeling.

Interesting to hear others views on our top 3 Euro nights....

For me:

1) Barca at the bridge in 05 - final score 4v2

2) Arsenal at Highbury- Champ league q final 04 and that goal from Wayne Bridge. 2v1

3) Chelsea Barca at the bridge in 2000 - champ league q final - final score 3v1

EDITED SB to HIGHBURY

The Bridge goal, and second leg of that tie was at Highbury though right - cause Claudio did his little run from Arsenal's old dugouts.

I've got to have that ridiculous 4-4 game with the dippers from a couple of years back - just after Pat had passed away - that was one emotional game too.

The leg with that goal from Bridge was at the Library

I think ive became Chelsea fan after that win at Highbury for the CL.I hope many many ppl become Chelsea fans after last night.Fans are THE most important thing for a football club, we need to break the duopoly of Liverpool and ManU.

Only been to one European match and that was the 3-0 against Valencia this year. But from watching on the TV i'd have Barcelona 4-2 as the top one. Then probably either the Valencia one, the Napoli one, or as mentioned, the Arsenal one. Actually..probably Arsenal as #2 because we'd been waiting to beat them for so long.

Fantastic result last night, one that will live long in the memory.

If you want to talk European nights, I'm going to go all the way back to March 24th 1971 on the way to the club's first European Trophy, the second leg of the Quarter Final against Bruges. 2-0 down after the first leg, Chelsea looked dead and buried, but goals from Tommy Baldwin, Peter Houseman, together a brace from Peter Osgood gave us a fantastic extra time victory, the scores having been tied on aggregate after 90 minutes.

This was the team that night:

John Phillips, Ron Harris, Eddie McCreadie, John Hollins, John Dempsey (Johnny Boyle), David Webb, Tommy Baldwin, Peter Osgood, Charlie Cooke, Alan Hudson, Peter Houseman

And here is the match programme:

I've got that programme somewhere. I was too young to go to the game and had to go to scouts that night but you could hear the roars as the goals went in at Parsons Green. My Dad always said this was one of the best games he ever went to.

beating Barca 3-1 at the bridge was immence for me. The first time we really mixed it with a eurpoean heavy weight of the modern erea, figo,kluivert(over rated) and rivaldo up top and we desimated them... 2nd leg didnt matter.

I guess napoli may feel the same way.

The gooners game doesnt sit well with me, yes i was over the moon about it but the truth is they won the league that season and didnt loose a game, we went home with bugger all.

Beat me to it! That night was easily the best European night I've ever experienced, the atmosphere was amazing - in fact it was the best atmosphere I've ever witnessed at the Bridge.

4-4 with Liverpool a few years ago is up there too, defiently one of the best games I've been too. Liverpool went 2-0 up at half time after we won 3-1 at Anfield. We managed to bring it back, but there was so many nerves and excitement in that game.

One of my favourites too.

1) Barca 1999/00

2) Barca 2004/05 (particularly as we were robbed in the first leg)

3) Arsenal 2003/04

4) Milan 1999/00

5) Liverpool 2007/08 (Vengeance)

6) Liverpool 08/09 (Away Leg only)

I couldn't enjoy the Liverpool 4-4 or last night, simply a bag of nerves

Barca 2004/2005 the one of the best atmospheres at the bridge and a great result....seeing Pier Luigi Collina in the flesh was good too, with his mad staring eyes..!

Bayern in the next round was brilliant too, a cracking goal from Frank, and that giant ref giving Makalele a ticking off (Maka looked like a little kid) as well as all the hoo ha about Rui Faria's hat !

Tromso away was great as well...just for the snow storm...
