Because that is what it's all about and what makes it so special. Deep deep emotions. The moment your team win you feel on top of the world and the moment they lose you feel just terrible. I would never trade this feelings for anything in the world. What else can I say? It's football and that's why we love it. For me the club is one of the biggest loves in my life and a relationship closer to me than some other things except family u know what I mean. It's a lifelong commitment for me. Sometimes I hate them (not really) and there the moments that makes them so special.

I hope I could help you a little bit? icon_wink.gif

yeah, that was a brilliant sign

Manny, I will tell you why you go through this. Because as a non-Londoner/fan who was blooded into Chelsea by family connections, these are the matches that make you realize you love this team. That feeling is one really familiar to me over the years. Loses to the mousers, Arsenal, in cup finals, etc, over the years, you're gutted. We have all been there. And its that hollow feeling after a loss that makes you think "I didnt know I could love a club this much". And it makes the moments when they do triumph (i.e. Lamps's penalty a few weeks ago) that much sweeter.

My solution after a night like tonight? Put on your kit tomorrow and wear it with pride. Because you earned the right to wear it with pride as much as anyone

That's what I was trying to explain. And that's how I'm feeling right now. To be a fan when your team is winning is just easy but to go through all the bad times it's what makes you a real fan.

You're not a football fan, you're a Chelsea fan that means you're special (and not in care-in-the-community way)...

Exactly. As if tonight doesn't hurt enough, just cast your mind back over the recent past:

2002 FAC v Arse

2004 CL SF v Monaco

2005 CL SF v Victimpool

2006 FAC SF v Victimpool

2007 CL SF v Victimpool

2008 CC v Spuds

2008 FAC v Barnsley

2008 Losing the league on the last day, having lost 10 points to injury-time goals over the season

Moments like beating Victimpool to the 4th CL place in 2003, Bridgey's goal to knock out Arse, Bolton 05, Wembley 07, beating Victimpool this year, ....they wouldn't be so good without the pain Chelsea fans go through year in year out.

Tonight is still an unreal experience, even after 40 years of supporting the club.

The one thing to remember guys and girls is that many years ago we could have been extinct. However we were saved by Ken Bates, who laid the foundations to where we are today. Also let us remember that 20 years ago we were in the second devision.

Blue Chelsea

For Chelsea's England midfielder Frank Lampard there was another emotional rollercoaster ride just weeks after his mother died, as he scored the equaliser and then a penalty in the shootout, only to see the Champions League just like the Premier League go to United.

"It's a small detail that loses you a game, John (Terry) slipped for the penalty," said Lampard. "No-one could deny that after 30 minutes we dominated the game.

"However we have to take it on the chin. I'm not being bitter but it's hard to take. United have won the Champions League against the better team.

"Terry should not be criticised as he stood up to take the penalty and there aren't many centre-backs who would do that," Lampard went on. "It has been a very hard time for me. It is unfortunate that the Champions League final has come this year when I'm having a tough time.

"Football has kept me focused on something. We'll (Chelsea) come back stronger. We are a team of giants. It's so frustrating that a penalty has decided it," added Lampard, whose club manager Avram Grant threw his losers medal into the midst of Chelsea supporters.

It's either suffering misery and enjoying the occasional mental moment, or alternatively live a quiet life following synchronised swimming. 317.gif
