"The last two Champions League finals to be decided by penalties were won by English teams."

Well yes, but the last one was lost by Chelsea.

Can they beat a German team on penalties? Big, big ask.

The most nonchalant penalty of the lot, and it was the most important! :lol:

Well done Chelsea though. Only 4 European Cups and 14 leagues to go.

I'll feel more sorry for Di Matteo if he isn't given the job...

I'm sure they will give it to him, but he won't last long unless they're in the top 3 at Christmas.

That's right Didier, God is wonderful. And he hates the Germans. And he's definitely more interested in the Champions League Final than, say, AIDS and famine.

I don't remember seeing John Terry playing tonight. Why's he wearing a full kit?

FUCKING BRILLIANT.
BLUE IS THE COLOUR :) :D

What a roller coaster of a night, but hell it was worth it, Ian and Amy who don't like football have seen a grown man cry and are both now deaf :lol: just totally amazed and happy :)

Sorry to all spurs fans.

Being a Spurs fan since I was about four, I say "Well done, Chelsea!", and reflect that if we hadn't allowed ourselves to sink into the psychology of a bad run, then we "could" have got third quite easily. You can't be in a situation where you prefer a foreign team to do your work for you, and I think Spurs need to do a bit more work before they're anywhere near ready to compete as a team that stands a chance against the likes of Barcelona and Real Madrid.

I've seen this thing with Scottish people cheering like f*ck when England lose, and have never ever really understood it. If Scotland miraculously won the World Cup, I'd think "Good on them!" Not being praying for them to lose. We all do our business under the same flag, well, at the moment we do, anyway.

What a great game, that 30 minutes extra time was as tense as the second half in the Nou Camp two weeks ago!!
