Champions League Final 2021 - Man City 0-1 Chelsea

I agree Werner has done well vs City recently with his pace and movement but I just can't see him being someone to rely on in a CL final. 

I actually would love to see a mount/havertz/pulisic trio. All three have the legs to counter (unlike Ziyech) all three have good dribbling and passing (unlike Werner) and all three are direct. 

Having said that, I don't mind werner in with pulisic coming on 60 mins

Quoting Oasis lyrics to mock Man City and the Gallaghers. Great trolling from the club's twitter admin. 😂

What a night. The game felt like ages since the moment we scored,  I probably aged 10 years but the hours since have flown by. Will take another few days to totally sink . Would have loved to go throu

This man... WHAT. A. PERFORMANCE.

Its obvious that werner will start.

No question about that

my reservation is about haverts/pulisic

Because one of Tuchel’s agreements with the higher ups was to shoehorn him into the squad. It’s the Sisyphus myth at this point. Too late to change system for the final, but I don’t wanna see this experiment next year. Again, just my humble opinion.

Hi everyone - not sure if this is the right chat to post in, but am a season ticket holder looking for a couple of tickets for the final at the weekend. Missed out on tickets by 1 loyalty point. Already in Portugal as family lives here. If anyone has a couple and is unable to go i think the club can transfer to other season ticket holders (did so for FA cup final). Please let me know! UTC!

Then I can only say they are extremely lucky they are not Chels fans

Absolutely. Exactly this. Those delusional people actually believe that Chelsea had a much easier time with media and other fans after our takeover than City did after theirs.

We have a proper case here at Chels, we have been at it since a russian owner took over, if you dont believe that the pgmol and fa hates us then so be it but I for one use my eyes and common sense, its blatant as the sun that the league is bent.

This is a tough place because neither of us, you nor me, are unbiased. I do believe that uefa, or individuals of influence within the organisation, treated us incorrectly. I also believe that fifa, specifically blatter, hated Chelsea. I do believe that we have suffered appalling decisions by official bodies. Three points however: -

City fans believe the same in respect of their club. They are convinced that their club has it worse than we do, worse than anyone else does. Just because they think it does not make it true and the same must apply to us.

I have read hundreds of assessments on here which I think are just outright pro Chelsea bias. Maybe you have too, I don't know but this is the root of my comment that we do this too and we do.

I did say 'us'. I did not attempt to exclude myself. Everybody knows that the media influences opinion but almost everyone believes that it doesn't influence them personally. Individuals generally consider themselves far too clever to be manipulated by the media they consume. They think it's only 'other people' who are susceptible. They are wrong. We all are influenced and we all have biases.

I almost don't want to watch this live... for I don't think my heart can handle the loss. 

 

I know how you feel but I think of this as a free hit. We should have no chance so we have nothing to lose. We didn't expect to be anywhere near the final. Being there is way ahead of schedule. Of course we'll take stick from media bods and fans of other clubs if we loose but we've got something to build on whatever the result.

Very true and that is how I will try to mentally prepare myself going into this one but I know once that whistle blows .. its 90 minutes of pure emotions. 😔

They are clearly not keeping up then, if they were Chels for 1 season they would see the difference, city has it so so easy imo.

Yeah for sure mate we all have bias, but there is a difference between bias and what you witness game after game. At some point you will recognize shit is simply against you, we have a proper case here where its more than evident based on what is happening that we are being shafted.......anyone claiming refs are fair and clean towards us are on a massive wind up imo ( not you ). Yeah the likes Platini was a disgrace, he just hated us and what RA did, our CL runs prove that as well, he couldnt have been a happy camper in 2012 😁.....he can go spit.

What do you guys think about Jorginho starting? I think with Guardiola finally playing a 4-3-3 with Silva, Gundogan and KDB as the creators then Jorginho will have massive problems. He won't be able to deal with the pressure in my opinion.

He is starting for sure, tactics or not. Historically he has put up decent matches against City, hope this is one of those times.

The problem is we don´t have alternatives.  Kovacic is quite good under pressure, but still looks very rusty after his injury so I doubt Tuchel would risk to play him. If Kante is out its game over in my opinion.

This was 2 days ago and if I didn't recognize the players wrongly, both Mendy and Kante were out with the rest of the team...
