As long as it ends in the ultimate heartbreak for either of the sides whether that by somebody slipping on their arse taking a pen or some keeper throwing the ball in to their own for a change, I'll certainly be watching.
Yeah that’s the only positive here that the winner takes it all. At least one oil team will lose!

TY very much! We got quite lucky with all your injuries but I'll take it!
You beat who's in front of you, well deserved. You looked scary impressive for 90 minutes, and rock solid overall

Think you can do city

Tuchel really is brilliant

Seeing English clubs winning CL and we haven't won it since 2008 is painful. We need at least a decent showing next season Ole.

But if they chose the wrong replacement it could have still have gone tits up. They're certainly doing something right and have continued to be successful despite being part of the managerial merry-go-round.
Theyre as far away from the league title as they ever were. Heres the thing, this is a cup run. As impressive as it is i dont think it takes English club much to get past Europes elite anymore. Those teams playing against each other in the title race is the real barometer, not beating these poor Spanish sides. Tuchel is the 7th EPL manager to reach a European final in 3 seasons and Include Ole in that this year. Could be 8 if Arteta gets through tomorrow.
I suppose i am downplaying it but i have no respect for European football during this cycle, England is just too far in front.
Well done Chelsea, its a great achievement but its only an advertisement for short term management if you dont intend to challenge City for the league title. Hell they will probably lose to City in the final who have had the mist stable project of any club over the least 5 years.

Really impressive by Chelsea. And I think they can even improve in the next years considering the age of many of their players.

I couldn't find a thread for it so I'll just ask here as this seems active tonight.

Anyone know why they're having the League Cup final in Turkey this year?

So an el Plastico final. Think of all those poor die hard fans who won't know who they support until one of them wins.

Would have hated to see Madrid in the final. They are easily my least favourite team. Chelsea played well. I hope they beat Oasis in the final.

Chelsea constantly go from having bad manager's and/or bad campaigns to winning major trophies in short succession.

Mourinho 2nd stint, wins PL.
Mourinho has bad following season.
Conte comes in and wins PL.
Conte has bad 2nd season.
Lampard has terrible half-season; Tuchel comes in and gets CL Final.

Just feck off with your scabby turnarounds.
Di Matteo and Benitez won them throphies as caretakers!

The champions of honeymoons and bouncebackability. From now on if they sack a manager midseason I'm putting money on them to win a trophy before the seasons out.

Bloody horrible final. Think I’ll give it a miss!

unless we can all put a few quid in to pay for the United marauders from Sunday to head to turkey and get the game called off?

We'll just have to be happy laughing at whichever set of plastic cnuts loses it. As you say, grim.
How about the scores are tied at 90 minutes, 105 minutes, and 120 minutes and after 5 penalties.

Every sudden death penalty is then matched, goal or otherwise.... forever more. Nobody wins... and they're still there at the start of 21/22, and so cant compete.

So feck Tuchel and his outrageous managerial performance so far...bollocks to their fancy squad....deck Pep...and canter to our rightful position atop the PL throne.


Yes... time to whip out the Voodoo trinkets

I wonder if anyone else on the planet enjoyed that as much as Gareth Bale.

Well no surprise those two teams are in finals, their fans dont breach stadiums, invade pitch and ruin Sunday afternoon for those who wanna watch a game.

What a season for Chelsea ever since Tuchel took over.

Love how he uses his squad to its full potential, also don't understand how people can say they are boring.

They have a great mix of pressing ,gegenpressing, really quick in counter attack and when in possession they play really fluid. Reminds me of Heynckess Bayern in 2013 with less offensive spectacle.

Reasonable decision to move the UCL final to Wembley?

2 English Teams, no need to go abroad because of COVID

Whose oil is Supreme!!?

Russian or Arab!? It's on.
Going to have to support the poor lowly Russian oligarch as the plucky underdog against the sovereign wealth of the UAE, I guess.

They didn't move the arsenal Chelsea final from Baku when mhki didn't travel cause of safety concerns and fans struggled to get there. They ain't moving shit.
