Pablo Aimar has probably provided the motivational speech for Benitez on Wednesday...

http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/news/europa-league-final-benfica-star-1882456?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

“Of course, Chelsea are a big club, but this is not the same team that won the Champions League a year ago,” said the 33-year-old. “This team got knocked out at the group stages. They have not been ­convincing in ­Europe or in the Premier League.

“Since they have inherited a wealthy owner, this is probably the weakest Chelsea team there has been.

“And it is a team that is not behind the coach. We can take advantage of the fact they are not at their best and not playing as a team.

“Chelsea lost two great players in ­Didier Drogba and Michael Essien.

“Then players who have been so ­important like John Terry and Frank Lampard are not even getting games.!

“It is amazing how much a team can change in 12 months, but that is ­football,” Aimar added.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you possibly the greatest gif on the internet...

"Everyone questioned me why Chelsea, this is my answer.” — Eden Hazard

And if there's anymore reason to hate Jorge Jesus. It's this:

His bloody rant after we KOed them out of CL last season.

Definitely gonna miss Hazard a lot. I'd like to see Ramires in the attacking 3 instead of Moses and Luiz in the DM along with Frank. Benfica has only won 2 of their last 5 games now, so we can and have to beat them! Their quotes are the best prompting.

reminds me of last season Bayern got battered against Dortmund in the German cup before losing to us in the CL final! Benfica just lost the league title before having to play us in the Europa League final...

Seems that little shit Aimar is trying to turn up the heat. Well I'm sure glad his team got beat tonight hahaha. If this Chelsea team is the worst one in the Roman era since we never qualifed for the CL even though we won it last year then surely since Benfica were quarter finalists last year and went out in the group stages of this years CL they are worse than last year?? Stupid fucker Aimar is.

I actually do not give a shit about Fat Jesus.

rafa might not be the best coach but he surely is better than this guy and I hope he tactically outfoxes him as he did with Ferguson, Wenger and AVB.

Now to the lineup: IMO Moses on the wing is less useful than Lamps in the front 3. With his 2 goals he has really merited himself a place in the starting lineup in the final.

Provided Hazard is out i'd go:

----------Cech---------

Azpi---Luiz---Iva--Cole

------Rami---Mikel

Oscar--Lamps---Mata

----------Torrid---------

Torress (Torrid+Useless) was actually quite okay when we played Benfica last year. we defeated them with a B team in Lissabon. Kalou also performed great then, I remember. Dawg, what I'd give to ahve Kalou back now.

Hopefully Hazard at least makes the bench, we only need one great piece of action from him, cos I do not think there will be too many goals in it.

You are right, epistemological this was an own goal by Aimar.

btw, Aimar is pronounced exactly the same way as Eimer which is German for this

After bottling up 7 trophies already this season, we could do with winning this one, like really. Losing one more here could affect some of the players psychologically and mentally.

The defeat must go down as the cruelest and most hurtful in their history. Don't know if it will help us though because it should have the opposite effect. They'll be so up for weds now so i'd be very wary. Also i think Cahill should play because Cordozo isn't the quickest. He's very good and dangerous around the box and even from long range, he has exceptional shot power but he's not someone who's gonna burst past players or through a defence like Messi or Aguero etc (or Benteke....).

This is gonna be a very hard game, especially with Eden missing. I can see another peno shootout :zip:

EL trophy is an additional bonus. It would be nice to see the team winning it. On Wednesday, the last important game of the season & then let the players rest for weeks, get ready for the next season.
