As usual the Chelsea TV commentary is shit. I prefer Martin Tyler's "Comes out to Essieeeeeeeeeen!" but can't embed that vid. Here it is if you want to watch that:

Screamed my fucking head off when that went in! And he hit the post like a minute later which I couldn't believe! It was practically a tap in and he missed it! :o:lol:

  3. 3-1 at Anfield in CL. Watched that with a broken leg on a hospital bed :yes:
  4. JT's goal vs Barca '05.

I can't find a video of it; but Jose Mourinho's press conference where he named the entire Barcelona team, and mindfucked Rijkaard into naming that exact team was brilliant :D

I have found a link though; http://www.joe.ie/ho...worst-0015081-1

Names Barcelona team in press conference

Despite his association with the club during the Bobby Robson era, Mourinho’s bitter relationship with Barcelona is not limited to his time in charge of Real Madrid; it dates back further than that. Before Pep Guardiola, Mourinho enjoyed a similarly acrimonious relationship with Frank Rijkaard, which reached a nadir prior to a Champions League knockout clash between Barcelona and Chelsea in 2005.

Quizzed about injuries to his players during a pre-match press conference, Mourinho proceeded to not only name the Chelsea team, but what he predicted to be the Barcelona team as well. In an age where a team’s personnel and tactics are guarded with a Fort-Knox like security, it was a remarkable display of arrogance and yet another example of an underhand attempt to undermine his opposite number.

In any case, it worked as the Blues triumphed over the Catalans 5-4 on aggregate. Karma came back to bite the Special One, however, as Chelsea were beaten by Liverpool in the semi-final, thanks largely due to the ‘ghost goal’ scored by Luis Garcia.

Edit: I've found a video from I'm On Setanta Sports :D

It starts at the 3 minute mark.

My best memories are surely : Drogba scoring against Barcelona in a 1-0 win at the Bridge

Lampard goal vs Liverpool (The penalty)

Drogba goal again in the FA Cup final at the new wembley vs United

There's a lot of fantastic goals and moment , i was really happy when Ivanovic scored vs Napoli.

Really good topic, don't know why i ignored it tbh. So many memories come to mind both good and bad from the ecstasy of the 2008 UCL Semi to the agony of the final which was just within a few weeks together. From the FA Cup final in 1994 to the revenge in 2007....too many memories!

I remember when i was 10, we beat Newcastle on pens in the fa cup (95/96) at St James' it was too late for me to stay up so i went to bed when the 90 mins had finished. My dad left me a note in the morning saying we won on pens, he even toled down the order of the scorers and if they missed or scored, finishing with Newton scores, Chelsea win 4-2! i'll never forget that. Just like i'll never forget the year before getting knocked out on pens by Millwall and the year before that, the first ever Chelsea match i watched on TV, the 1994 FA Cup final against Man Utd where i cried like a baby lol. I remember not having Sky and having to press tele text to find out the scores, there were no pc's or phones or fuck all back then, just shows how much things have come on in the last decade. I love all the memories from my first few years being a Chelsea fan because those days were so different. Remember watching all the scores come through, seeing Chelsea 1-4 Man Utd, Liverpool 5-1 Chelsea etc etc, remember that Myers OG at Anfield? Fucking dick lol. Then we started progressing bit by bit. Such a huge turn around from 95-98

The FA Cup has always been special for me because a lot of my early memories were from that. The 94 final, my first game i cried so much.... well i was only 7! Remember this Man Utd fan proper hammered the day after fall down the stairs down by the river, my dad always tells me about that lmao manc cunt. Then 94/95 Millwall.... went to a replay and they done us on pens thanks to Kasey Keller the yank bastard. 95/96 the pen shootout that i mentioned above but the 1 memory i have from that year was Duberry's shot against the bar in the semi against Man Utd, i mean fuck sake how much bad luck have we had against that team? In the final in 94, Peacock hit the bar in the first half, it was 0-0 at half time. In 96, the semi, Duberry hit the bar at 1-1 late in the day, we lost 2-1 because of Burleys infamous back pass that put Beckham through and he duly finished. Then 12 years later, more woodwork heartache against them in the UCL final.

Then we started winning trophies!! The 97 FA Cup final against Boro was emotional because it had been so long since we won anything and after all the near misses in the previous few years, we finally had a run where we played everyone shit! (woo). I hadn't had to wait long but for my dad and his family waited ages. I watched the final in Brighton in a pub called 'The Hob Goblin' remember the day so well, watched it with my dad, grandad and uncles, was an awesome day, Di Matteo's goal after just 42 seconds will be one of the greatest memories of all time and steady Eddie sealed the deal from a piece of Zola magic. Then we went on a bit of a roll, the season after we beat Boro again in the Carling Cup final and then won the cup winners' cup against stuttgart and the super cup against Real Madrid, what a spell! The best thing about winning the Carlin.....oh i mean the Worthington Cup was the fact that we beat Arsenal in the Semi and not only did i fucking hate them from an early age, but they were bidding to be the first team to do the domestic treble. Was brilliant to beat them, although it remains my only ever victory over them throughout my school years, it was a rather nice one and Di Matteo's goal... WHAT A HIT SON! Love that goal.

I could write a whole book on my Chelsea supporting history in truth and it's only been going for 17 and a bit years! Obviously this new Chelsea since Roman took over is like a different world to what we were before but now we really are a top level side, a big world force and trophies and top players are easier to come by now and not few and far between. To be honest, even Football is completely different now and that's why it's important to remember as far back as you can because it will never be like that again. Money now dominates the sport and although it made football a lot better, it is killing the genetics of the game and making it harder for home grown players to break through. A London derby full of Londoners and a Scouse derby full of thieves is a distant memory but the love we have for our team stays the same, even if that's not quite the same with today's players.

Anyway... other random memories

- UCL decider against Liverpool in 2003

- Winning 4-0 in Lazio

- Tromso in the snow

- Cup Winners' Cup semi comeback against Vicenza

- Beating Barca 3-1 in 1999/2000

- Beating Barca and Bayern 4-2 in the 04/05 UCL KO stages.

- UCL misfortune from 2004-2010.

- Lampards penalty in the 2008 Semi vs Liverpool.

- Matthew Harding's tragic death after Bolton away

- Drogba's amazing scoring record in semi's and finals

- JFH hat-trick against Tottenham and beating Tottenham 4-0 twice in 3 days

- Wayne Bridge vs Arsenal

- Essien vs Barca

- Welcome to Hell, Galatasaray 0-5 Chelsea UCL 99/00

- Moscow 2008 UCL Final is always on my mind. The Drogba shot against the post, the Lampard shot against the bar in extra time and of curse the JT penalty miss.

- Arsenal 1-1 Chelsea, 06/07 we had just lost the title but what an emotional and proud day when Jose and the players went to the fans at the end. 1-1 with 10 men too.

There's too many memories and there will be a hell of a lot more to come. Let's hope we can have some more amazing ones this season.

Chelsea Til i die.
