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


Recommended Posts

Out of interest does anyone remember the away 1-0 game vs Benfica in this run, as in the run of play, who was more dominant, etc? It was about the only game throughout the knockout rounds that didn't feel like a cup final to me, ergo, the most forgettable!

BELIEVE.

2009 Coach sacked mid season. UEFA had other plans for the CL final. Guus is owed one.

Luiz's is the best I've ever seen given the incredible pressure he was under not to mention that would have beaten more than just 1 keeper at once.

 

It's a well-known fact that the best penalty of all time was Kevin Pressman for Sheffield Wednesday vs Wolves in the FA Cup in 1995:

Had a glance through it, fairly sure it was [just about] before the matchday threads descended into bickering and complaining.

 

General consensus seems to be - solid first half, slightly more shaky second half. RDM went for a side packed with experience of the Portuguese leagues (i.e. Meireles, Luiz, Ramires, Paulo). Paulo unexpectedly started and was solid. Luiz, Mikel and Ramires were apparently excellent, Mata was poor, and Kalou scored the winner near the end despite missing several easy chances.

Thanks Ploks, that seems to be just about how I remember it (and I did remember the Kalou goal). I remember our home leg much more vividly, lots and lots of missed chances, including one particular shocking one from... I think Sturridge or Ramires? Meireles' goal at least made up for it.
