Hope u have fun trying to get Torres to score lmao

Well, at least it wasn't City..As a United fan, i'm becoming more and more bleak at our prospects with Kagawa/Dortmund now trying to play hardball. It wouldnt surprise me if we started the new year with only 1 minor signing despite our clear midfield woes.

Chelsea are the champions of Europe. They deserved to win. You cannot get lucky in every match. Good teams finish, some of the teams (Bayern and Barcelona) could not. Chelsea could. Bayern had what, 18 or 19 corners in the final, 0 goals and only a couple of good chances from them. Chelsea has 1 and they score.

Chelsea is far from aging. Yes Lampard, Malouda, Terry and Cole are getting up there. But you have a ton of youth, or younger players making their marks. David Luiz, Ramires, Mata, Cahill, Romeu, Bertrand amongst others.

What does it say about Arsenal, Man U and Man City? Man U couldn't handle Benfica, Chelsea did. City couldn't handle Napoli, Chelsea could. Heck a Swiss team would have advanced past United had it been the knockout round. Ask any top team what trophy they want most, the answer should surely be the Champions League trophy.

˛ that. Those are all world-class players and will probably form the backbone of Chelsea in the next years. The only thing I hope is that they can find a coach who has a bit more balls than Di Matteo. I don't think Hazard will enjoy playing near his own penalty area all the time .

I don't think anyone should be slating Chelsea the chamions of Europe. They are gonna spend this summer, they had the balls to get rid of Drogba which was a big call, Torres is showing signs that this can be another season like his 1st at Liverpool when he was virtually unplayable, Mata will only get better and so will Ramires, Cahill was a great signing, they fought of competition from 2 of the richest clubs and signed one of Europes hottest properties in Hazard. They also have goalkeeper Courtois who looks world class out on loan at Atletico Madrid. 2/3 more quality signings then Chelsea will be challenging for the EPL and top 4 easy and challenging for the chamions league again. And these are the Chelsea transfer rumours = Cavani, Falcao, Cardozo, van der Wiel and Lucas from Sao Paulo in Brazil. Now these are quality players to be linked to, sign one of the 1st three, van der Wiel and Lucas and Chelsea will be a quality side.

$3,500,000,000. That's the amount Abramovich had to pump into Chelsea to make them what they are today. Lets also not forget the fact that the money was stolen from the Russian people. If financial fair play ever does kick in, Chelsea are f*cked.

Why? Because they played anti-football against Barca and got lucky against Bayern? European knock-out games have zero bearing on the Premier League's 38 game competition.

So you think because Chelsea played unattractive football they dont deserve to be up there. Well if thats the case then why are Man Utd up there. Man Utd play a lot of unattractive football and have been poor most of the season.
