Chelsea to cause a big surprise tonight.

I'm not the worlds biggest Chelsea fan wink and I hated their arrogance, from Mourinho (which I kind of grew to respect) and their fans (which I grew to loathe even more).
It's hard to dislike DeMatteo, who seems to be a thoroughly nice chappie and I think this game might be a close one (watch one team beat the other 5-1 now!) but I think Bayern should prove too strong for the old campaigners in their own back yard.
I'm going for a 3-1 victory for Munich.

The Sam Allardyce Brand of Total Football, back in the Prem...oh joy! frown

I hope Chelsea won't slip again tonight. It was a sad moment when Terry slipped and missed from the spot against Manchester United in the final four years ago. The camera will be following Roman Abramovich after the game tonight as he bursts into laughter after Chelsea emerge as winners. Chelsea will probably play better as the underdogs like they did in the semis when they knocked out Barcelona from the competition.

Blue is the colour, football is the game
We're all together, and winning is our aim
So cheer us on through the sun and rain
'cause Chelsea, Chelsea is our name

Chelsea will be whupped tonight I'm afraid. On neutal ground, and with their first choice 11, they'd have had a chance - but not with a makeshift back four in Bayern's own back yard.

They just did.

Bayern were BY FAR the better team for almost the entire match, Chelsea were stale and boring. But that's football.

I'm staggered. Well done Chelsea football club!

I liked Ashley Cole's interview.

Gabriel Clarke: "Germans never lose penalty shoot-outs."

Cole: "They do now." *walks away*

Bayern lost all confidence after Robben once again gagged when his team needed him most.

Congrats to Chelsea (I actually got a pick right for a change!)

Tottenham gets the shaft, as they're bounced from next year's champion's league tourney; Brad Friedel, who was on FOX's coverage, could barely contain his crushing disappointment.

I know. It SUCKS so hard. And even after having managed the best spot in the PL in years.

I'm happy for my Chelsea supporting friends, and sad for my Spurs supporting friends. We watched Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) instead - it was great.

AKA "The Fernando Torres Story"... wink

As for the Spurs getting leapfrogged, I only recently read about this odious practice when Liverpool and Real Madrid benefited from it. Past merits are exactly that, past; let the teams earning it move ahead. However, Tottenham's late-season collapse killed any chance of a third-place finish anyway, which I'm sure Arsenal supporters love.

If only they hadn't played so weakly in the final weeks of the PL - then they'd never have needed to worry.

Well, The Hammers are back. Didnt play well on the day but put away two chances and Blackpool missed theirs. We did beat them three times this season, finished about 150 points in front of them and the overall score from three games would be 10-2. So these things even out despite Blackpool being unlucky on the day.
I was right about Ince's son scoring. That was a stone banker.
Our big worry comes in August because unless we get in about 6 or 7 players, we will end up with a worse total than Wolves did.

Tottenham fans must have been going through the mill last night with the drama of the goals, the penalty given against Drogba and the save etc. Probably a few heart attacks in north london.
But the implications for them are horrendous. Thursday is now Spursday as they are condemned to another season of europa league thur/sun matches. Plus with no champions League to tempt players - a golden excuse for Bale, Modric and anyone else to say "Thanks but Im off."

Yeah. Van Der Vaart should find a team that has a shot of oneday winning something.

Tottenham is a losing battle...

"Three Point Lane." Heh.

I work with a fanatical Arsenal supporter and his overriding obsession was his side finishing ahead of Tottenham. Things looked bleak with that putrid Gunners start, but in the end it worked out for them. However, I dislike the schadenfreude often found in sports.

BTW, Didier Drogba should walk away from Chelsea and then just be remembered for being the great player he was, with his final action on the pitch being the UEFA penalty winner.

I remember his hideous-looking concussion vs. Norwich early in the season...frightening stuff.

Jim, like it or not, every football fan I know takes succour from the failures of the teams, players and managers they don't like, as well as the successes of their own team.

There's a famous chant,"Let's all laugh at Chelsea", based on their past fiascoes, and while it isn't appropriate for the next few days or even weeks, it'll be back, don't you worry. As soon as that awful John Terry is found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, it'll be back. Or as soon as they sack Di Matteo even though the blindingly obvious step is to give him a permanent contract, it'll be back.
