if you have something against chelsea and terry, just say it
Finishing up my paeds rotation early and heading off to the pub to watch this with a few rentie supporting mates. Going to be mayhem tonight, Chelsea's best bet is to flood the midfield and not concede an away goal. Concede any away goals and they're as good as fucked in this tie (if they weren't already).
Watched them last night and they weren't that impressive. Bayern will be a far more imposing threat to Barca (notwithstanding the fact that the final's being played at their ground). Madrid against Barca on a neutral ground will be the same old story I reckon.
Even if we lose to Barca, I wouldn't want the final to be another El Clasico.
The final between the clubs from the same country just doesn't appeal to me.
Strange comment, what does him being American have to do with it? Assuming you were being serious, that is.
I am always serious
Will be honest here, just dont want Barca picking up another CL. They're winning too much . That said, i dont want Chelsea to win it either so i'l be rooting for chelsea in the semi and for bayern/real in the final. hoping bayern lift the trophy come may really..
I hope Bayern get through the other tie but they've a hell of a job on next week in Madrid, as for Chavski, a draw tonight will be a good result for them, a win mega , I just don't see them getting through though - damage limitation then at Camp Now for a 2-5 aggregate.
It's just that I've seen seen "because they beat twice in the final" reason mentioned so much that I posted.If some wanna back Chelsea for other reason then I see no problem.
I think it's extremely small time and bitter to only use the defeat in the two finals (for those who do it) as a reason to hope that Chelsea gets to the final
That was probably a blessing in disguise given Messi's tendency to cut inside from the right.
Is Tom Henning Ovrebo officiating as in the 2009 SF ?????
I think a lot of people are giving Chelsea too much of a chance, on the basis of blowing away a Spurs team that have been abject for ages now.
I think Barca will absolutely destroy them, home and away. Should be one of the most one-sided semis ever.
I agree Pogue, it should be, but it is a cup competition after all...
Aye, if it was easy as that to get predictions right I'd be a very rich man.
Still, Chelsea aren't very good at all. Barca are excellent. A cricket score is on the cards IMO.
I do think Barcelona will go through but I think it will be close tonight anyway. Chelsea can be stubborn when they need to be and it will be nowhere near as one sided as our game with Shalke in the semis
I've been saying this for the last few days. And Spurs actually looked the better side when they recently played in the league.
Football is an emotional game. Noone likes to see their team take apart.
But to be honest, I would have been much worse affected had we lost the final to Chelsea in 08.
My sentiments are similar to Varun's. I just don't like to see any team so dominant other than us. That, and I don't like their antics and I'm not particularly fond of their style of play.
An easy champions league semi final? Behave. I think people are under estimating thier big game players.
It will be close but Barca will progress.
whatever happens...I think they will be less of an embarrassment than we were against Bilbao.
I'll repeat though, I don't want Barcelona getting to another final. I wouldn't mind seeing Chelsea getting reamed by Bayern/Real in the final.
Lampard is going to age 5 years after tonights match.
Over 2 legs, barca should get through comfortably., the game at nou camp is the one i expect them to utterly dominate chelsea in. Tonight, i think chelsea will give them a good game. They'l have to be at their best though.
Even compared to United v Schalke?
Felix Brych is the ref tonight.
Well that would also be one of the most one-sided semis ever.
No he won't. He simply isn't going to bother...if you don't make an effort, you don't get made to look a fool He'll show up when Chelsea have possession and are in attack.
Barcelona looked a bit rusty in their last game against Levante. They always raise their game for the big occasions, but I'm sure Chelsea will too
I want Real Madrid to win the CL this year, then Ronaldo can come back home to us after satisfying his need to win everything with Madrid
Wouldn't suprise me to see Chelsea come away with a result at home or something that resembles a result against Barca anyway. 2-1 with Chelsea truly believing they are marvelous.
Chelsea will get ripped the shit out of.
Milan stopped Barca scoring at San Siro so If Chelsea apply the perfect game then I could see them nicking a 1-0 win at home.
TBH, this will be funny but it won't be the scenario I prefer. The 2008 scenario is too precious to be overshadowed by an incident like you propose.
I'm supporting Chelsea tonight.
Same here! A Barca v Bayern Final will be a great game to watch for all neutral. Plus, there won't be a game full of players falling over
After Moscow, that's understandable.
I'm leaning towards the Chavs too, if only to redress the balance after the last fiasco against Barca.
Why! Am I among the minority thinking since we couldn't beat Barca, I would prefer no English team will... just coz of a bit of ego in us! I fancy a Barca v Bayern Final and Bayern to win it.
I seem to remember the all Italian final (2003?), which was boring as fuck.
Despite Barca being the clear better team I still tonight's game to be close in terms of final scoreline.A bit like the 2-2 at the Emirates 2-3 years ago when Barca utterly dominated Arsenal in the game.
At the Nou Camp ,it'll be another story, Chelsea will be find it hard there.
I hope Barca destroy Chelsea and win it all as I hate Bayern and I don't care much for Real either. It always amazes me how a team like Chelsea that is so crap in their own league can get to this stage of the CL but I suppose knock-out competitions can produce that kind of thing. Rather like Portsmouth winning the FA Cup.
