For me, football is two teams striving to score goals, not one team parking the bus and hoping to steal a goal. Anyway, I was bored .

it was a very poor match for the first seventy minutes and after robben missed the penalty in extra time , both teams just ran down the clock for penaltys

chelsea have always been a hard team to love , they are the epitome of new money and even thier location in london epitomises vulgar yuppydom , that thier owner is a gangster oligarch only adds to the bad smell


still glad they won however , drogba is some man for one man

I thought it was a fantastic final tbh. Chelsea dealt with the pressure, as they always do so well, and are decisive and deadly on the break I for one enjoy watching Chelsea. And what a header by Drogba.

Ha, I thought the same thing. Thanks for nothing BM! Never been a fan of Drogba (because of the multiple life threatening injuries he obtains in every match he participates in), but that header was sick, and his penalty was taken as if it were in a Sunday afternoon pick-up game at the local park. If he was feeling the pressure, it sure didn't show. I know it's easier to make the potential walk off game winner than it is to step to the spot with the "make it or go home" in your head (just ask Roberto Baggio), but it sure appeared that he knew it had already gone in. Big players in big games sometimes do answer the call.

Drogba announced that he's leaving Chelsea. He has been Chelsea's equivalent of Thierry Henry. Fantastic player who go down as one of the Premier League's all time greats. Hopefully he'll find a good club where he can at least be guaranteed a start and can earn a decent salary before he decided to hang up his boots. If he ends up in the MLS, I will definitely go and watch him play.

Don't know. Actually, after what he pulled off last saturday, I think he does belong in the list with Peter Schmeichel, Roy Keane, Dennis Bergkamp, Cristiano Ronaldo, Thierry Henry, Gianfranco Zola,...

Although after seeing this little list, then again maybe not. I don't know, I cannot make up my mind. Let's say he's somwhere in the twilight zone between all time greats and plain greats .
