Of course most Real Madrid fans will want Bayern to lose, they must hate Bayern for taking their cocky asses out of the Champions League..Go on a Barcelons forum, you will see the same type of hate for Chelsea & probably everyone wants Bayern to win..It's always like that, people are rarely guided by anything else than emotions to make such a decision.

Yeah i know, but my point was not everyone see us like the enemy of football xD.

I'm not optimistic but i am hopeful. I'm sick of reading all this crap that Bayern are better, Bayern are favourites, Bayern are at home, Chelsea play Anti-Football, Chelsea have a weak attack, Chelsea's suspensions are too much for them to handle, Chelsea only are strong in defence bluh bluh bluh bluh bluh crap bollocks.

We played defensive against Barcelona, we had our game plan, we played to our strengths and we played to their weaknesses. Barcelona haven't beaten us in 7 matches since 2006, that's not a coincidence to me. I think the Barcelona games were the only times we've played like that all season but because the whole world watched it unfold, they all assume we play like this every game. Not true at all. We have great defenders so if we want, we can play like this. We had to do what we had to do to get through and guess what? We got through. Instead of 'neutrals' praising our defence, they focus on the attack. We played like that on purpose, we got lucky of course but that's life. The goal is big enough, if they can't find it, that's their problem, not ours.

I like Bayern Munich, they are a good side and yes they are good going forward but Robben always looks to cut in and Ribery always goes outside, both are not trusting of their weaker right feet so if you keep em on their right feet, you stop half their threat because they are huge players for the team.... unless they dive for a penalty which they will try no doubts about that.

I don't mean to sound like an arse but i reckon 80% of Munich fans think that Schweinsteiger's penalty won them the UCL, they think it's just all about picking up the trophy. Hopefully their team feel the same way because they'll be shocked if they think we'll focus only on defence because we wont. This is the biggest match in our 107 year history and the fact that it is very likely the last chance for Drogs, JT, Lamps, Cole and Essien, it's even bigger than just the biggest match in our history. It's a one off game, a very difficult game against a very good team but a 1 off game, do or die which we can win with the right attitude and homework done. It doesn't get bigger than this, this is bigger than England in a world cup final for example, this is the biggest match in football for ANY Chelsea player or fan.

-To the guy who said that everyone you talk to says "fuck Bayern" well you might not have the most impartial people around you. I don't think that most people hate Bayern just like I don't think that most people hate Chelsea. That anyways can't be proven unless we ask everyone in the world which is impossible so I'll leave it at that.

The majority of the people were from Austria, so it's just legit to have them say such things^^ And just as Rummenigge was exaggerating, I was doing in some way the same thing. In the end, it's obvious that neither side is right.

Btw, willkommen im Forum!

I disagree with that, we had to come back from 3-1 down against Napoli, a in form team who have been brilliant for 2 seasons. We had to somehow deal with the firepower of Cavani, Lavezzi and Hamsik, which no other team has done, not even City could do it.

Funny you mention Napoli and say no other team was able to beat them... But Bayern beat them in the CL group and were destroying them till Schweinsteiger's injury.

And we did it, then we got a tricky team like Benfica where Real Madrid were with Apoel and forgot who Munich had i think it was a french team Marseille who might be just a bit better than Benfica. Then we played the best team in the world, and done them on both legs, we had 10 men, 2-0 down, no centre backs, away from home. We deserve it more than Bayern in my opinion.

Napoli and Benfice aren't exactly strong teams. Neither are Basel and Marseille (Though they respectively knocked out ManU and Inter).

Both Chelsea and Bayern knocked out a Spanish giant but had a reasonably easy KO stage before that.

So don't argue Chelsea deserve it more because of a tougher road to the final, that just isn't true.

Besides, Bayern had by FAR the toughest group stage, having clubs from the four biggest European leagues.

I agree with Ollie to some degree.

The media already crowned Bayern as Champions.

They forget that despite Chelsea not being as strong as it used to be, it's still a great team.

And if other defensive minded teams like Mongengladbach were able to beat Bayern at home, so can Chelsea.

Besides, being underdog is a massive advantage...

Anything can happen in a Champions league final, you have to believe that and if the players believe that then I have no doubt Chelsea can pull it out of the bag.

Rooting for you lads.

We still played the best team in the world, and Napoli were one very tough team, we came back from 3-1 down. You're playing our performances down, when your 10 men down, 2-0 down, not one centre back on your team against the best team in the world come back to me.

Ribery is great player, no doubt about that. But his intelligence is on the same level or even lower than Balotelli's, he is simply stupid, that would be problem with him but i still admire that player.

Ribery's a fucking squealing little cheat, he goes down all the time. He's a very good player but i don't like that side of him.

And yeah, we all know Bayern are favourites. Like Napoli were after the first leg and like Barca were in both. The pressure is on Bayern in their own home.

I will always love Ribery on the pitch, but never as a person

ribery and robben are as the barca players. in germany are often criticized for its dives. the referee mus be good.

Well, i was reading some forums and supporters of Real Madrid and Milan want Chelsea to win it.

I read on a Madrid forum that they wanted Bayern to win due to the embarrassment the club would get from loosing to a club that lost to Chelsea

Why Milan supporters?

The problem with Bayern being favourites are that Germans never bottle anything. Well, nearly everything, excluding invading a certain Stalinist country far to the east in winter :P

Look we are by and large rubbish, but motivation can do funny things to players. Every one of our players, even the much derided Bosingwakalouda trio, are playing at maximum output, and that makes us nigh on unstoppable imo.

For their match with Barcelona (two penalties and stuff) and i because they support defensive football, i guess. Barcelona has gain a lot of hate in Europe the last years.

Personally I think we will be ok, going through that we just played and beat Barca with 10 men, yeah Gomez, Ribery and Robben are going to be tough I have confidence in the team to pull it out, hopefully Luiz and Cahill will be back, our suspension do kinda hurt but theirs are 10x worse.

I'm not going to lie and say it's good enough that we've reached the final against crazy odds. We have to win.

No one remembers the losing team. All those years of frustration in Europe rankle me and that won't go away till we get our hands on the big one.

Catharsis is a must.

I am actually relieved that we aren't facing Madrid in the final because they would have been a tougher test than Bayern.Defensively,Bayern aren't really strong,so we can really hurt them on the counter attack.With Ramires suspended for the final,I would like Torres to start as a right winger.RDM should try and start both together once,to see how they fare out but with the busy schedule up ahead,I doubt it will happen.Sturridge though must start for the final.

He has the pace and trickery to baffle their defense and is not afraid to take half chances.His energy can be a real asset.For him to get selected,he will need to play really well in the league and prove RDM that he is up for this task.So having said that,I really hope he starts against QPR and plays well.

The last time Bayern reached a CL final it was against a side that had triumphed against the supposed 'greatest team ever'. Yes, we are the underdogs, and as Ollie stated, the only time we were favourites in the knockout stages of this competition was against Benfica, and we almost fucked that up.

And to think, the CL campaign was practically over in this moment in time……

This is just weird, coming from an Everton fan. :lol:

And I still blame you guys for not beating those cavemen in the semis!
