I agree with KHR about millionaires buying clubs

Oh Im sorry, that was three seasons ago, back under Jurgen Klinsmann, times have changed sir, currently, we can challenge Barcelona just like we did against Real Madrid!

That was the season they started their quest to become the best side ever. They werent there yet. If Bayern has grown in three years Barca grew 10 folds and is currently the best side ever.

they would put 5 past you tiki taka-ing around your penalty box considering the weak defense you got.

The way we play has dramatically changed since than, our defense is far better, we have new players, different manager, almost everything has changed. Barca has lost form recently, we probably would have had the same result.

Lol..2 weeks back no one said Barca lost form. They expected to put 6 past us at Stamford bridge. Chelsea brought them to knees along with real Madrid in space of 1 week and all of a sudden Teams around Europe go like "oh we could take Barca on now cus they look weak"

Mourinho's Real and Mourinho's ex Team used the same tactics. Beat them on counter. If you open up and play them the way you want them to play they will feast on you

I follow the Bundesliga a fair bit and am used to Bayern's hierarchy talking themselves up. Rummenigge, in particular, has a history. Doesn't bother me, you only need to look at BVB to know their talking is inconsequential. Bayern have the better players, the home support, the 'favourites' tag and the support of other clubs, if you believe what they say. But so did Barcelona .. and look how that turned out.

They can say what they want but so long as we have the desire and mental toughness that is our hallmark, we have a fighting chance. The game's played on grass, not paper.

I have a German Friend and Ive met alot of Germans and I ask them Bayern Munich Fans? And I get a Big NO...General Consensus is that everyone hates them in Germany cus they poach players from other clubs.

Drogba said he wants to make amends for the last Finals in Moscow.

Now that he has said that we know he is going to put in the performance of his life and when he does it, he is unplayable and you can see defenders bouncing off him.

Add to that the fact that Bayern are missing two defenders. If I was a Bayern defender Id be shitting my pants.

Every team is beatable so is Bayern. They have great team, but we have too. It's better to be underdog for this game, Mourinho's Porto was too when they crushed Monaco 3-0 in final plus he have Torres. :lol:

I feel I have to explain something. No one is underestimating Chelsea, I myself consider them serious opponents, even more serious than Real Madrid. The ones who came back from being 3-1 down in aggregate and yet not giving up. Im very impressed with Di Matteo, as I never expected much of him, but he shocked us all with his work. Most other Bayern fans I speak to, also fear Chelsea, as they are not the team they were a few months ago. All I can say is, may the best one win. :)

Weak defense? Really? You just made it painfully obvious that you havent been watching Bayern nor know anything about Bayern. Have you seen the way Lahm turned Ronaldo into his own slave? Or the 19 year old David Alaba? Last year, I would have agreed with you, but our defense has dramatically improved since than. I feel they are underestimating Bayern, most Madrid fans claimed that they would put 5 past Bayern, and did they? No!

Real Madrid expected to feast on us, most of the media expected Madrid to go through. Again, I dont see why you are underestimating Bayern as we are currently on par with Madrid and Barca, and Chelsea is on par as well.

Lol, Chelsea are just like Leeds from 1975

-Hired young manager

-Struggled in the league

-Fired their young manager half way into the season

-Still went far into the Champions League (then European Cup)

-Played Barcelona in the Semi-finals

-Second leg was in Barcelona where Leeds wore their alternate white jerseys

-Beat Barca

-Played Munich in the final

I can't agree that Bayern and Chelsea are on par with the Spanish duo. We got through which was great but Barca and Real are a level above. We just managed to get the job done over the 2 legs somehow. Nodody has a given right to win any match tho, some finals are shocking. Liverpool in 2005 won the UCL whilst coming 5th in the league, Porto vs Monaco was a shocking Final, Liverpool - Milan again in 07. The 2 finalists are not necessarily the best 2 but in a tournament, any team can beat any team.

But anyway, the fact is that Bayern and Chelsea are 2 very well organised teams that are very good at what they do. It should be a very good final and if we win it would be amazing. I just wanna see a good clean contest with no controversy.

3 weeks to go, it's gonna feel like 3 months, i can't wait for it.

Bayern are lucky, they can reax and go to the beach if they want until the German Cup final. We're battling away. Real Madrid were so tired by the hour mark on Weds, i just hope the difference in freshness isn't the same in 3 weeks time.

We'll see.

In 1975 Barcelona were not hailed as TheGreatestTeamEver™, eliminating them in 2012 to reach a final is a bigger deal.

Different club cultures too, Leeds being a nothern club with nobody (including subs, reserves, coaches) from outside the United Kingdom. Chelsea is the most multicultural squad/organisation in the Premier League. Brian Clough's experience at Leeds was far more hostile too, if you compare the intricacies.

1. Lets be honest here and agree that Bayern's weak point is their defense. You may have the best defense in the German league which isnt very competitive. Lahm is the only player who would get into Chelsea Defense and handling a Brute of a Center Forward who is known to perform on big nights is different to handling a right winger who often goes missing on big nights. Regarding Real madrid, they actually beat you in the normal time but the game went into extra time because of away goal. But Finals is a one off game. its a different cup of tea. Ill be honest here, if the game goes to penalties we stand no chance.

2. I am not underestimating Bayern. i am just saying dont over estimate yourself. You said Bayern would have beaten barca too. I doubt unless you parked a bus even then i would doubt with that defense....In other words, I am just showing you the mirror.
