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.

No, we won 2/2 CL finals wearing the season's kit. We lost 2008 and in the 2008/9 kits. 

That's what I basically said. We won 2 out of the 3 Champions League finals by wearing that particular season's kit. 2011/12 kit for the 2012 final and 2020/21 for the 2021 final.

Can't remmeber us ever winning a final in our kits for the next season. Maybe that is also why we usually lose the community shield, it is usually the first game of the new season. The first game in a new kit is usually a wirte off confirmed lol

I'm usually not a fan of using the next season's kit prematurely. This year it was worse than usual for me because that meant more matches played using the ugliest Chelsea kit I've ever seen.

lol similar here. I think the 2020/21 kit was alright. a bit boring but classy enough, I also liked that it was overall a bit darker than usual looked so much more sophisticated that most other teams' kits. But the new one is way too edgy for me. I have met a few ppl who love it for the same reason. I mean at least it is individual enough but no one liked this 60ies style ever

I dont get how someone designed it and got approved for it! It's bloody awful. Know some will like it or buy it just because but can next years not be like that

Another Feroze masterclass

 

 

Don't like the against all odds angle to this one.

A surprise maybe but it wasn't against all odds and we haven't really had any perceived luck all tournament.

That is true, but the production itself is quality.....he is a producer I think

17 days later ...... 

Still pretty insane how Chelsea won a Champions League title during our ‘rebuilding’ period.

We had zero chance this team to  winning anything in   January  and   four months later we hold the Champions League trophy  like that - The  Chelsea way.

I put it on TT, guy is insane. 

I know you can say we won it with RDM, but back then it was the players. 

Today the players are not the level of the players that we had back then. Terry, Lampard, Drogba. Nowhere near that quality. Only one who falls under that bracket right now is Kante. 

But this season it was all about the manager, what he has done is amazing. Now looking forward to what he can do this new season. If we get the players he wants then we should challenge for PL, and CL well winning it two times in a role is a hard so I will say go far in the competition. Quarters or Semis.

Usually Super Cup is after a couple of domestic games but this time before PL starts. It is the same for Villarreal. But we have 17 players on EURO and Silva on Copa. They have just 2 players on EURO and 1 on Copa. And Torres will 99% leave. So they will be much more prepared for that game. But quality is on our side and we really need to win that trophy. Hopefully players with full pre season like Mendy, Alonso, CHO, Pulisic, Ziyech deliver in that game.

I think Chris, Kova, and 6 players from England and Germany could finish EURO already in June so that would be great for Chelsea. And if we are signing Haaland, Hakimi and others we better do it as soon as possible.

Silva, Kante and Jorginho are most likely to play finals with NTs (Zouma, Emerson and Giroud also but they are leaving most likely) so with 3 weeks holiday after that they would not come before August.

Those are bad foresigns again.

would be mad to lose the damn super cup for a fourth time in a row va arguably the weakest side but the euros is obviously a huge advantage for villareal. It is also weird that the  europa league champ only has 6 international players and the rest have a summer long holiday. 
On the plus side, many guys like Azpi, RJ will be just riding the bench for most parts and will not exactly be overplayed such that they need a mega holiday. Probably will also not lose as much fitness as players who have the whole summer off

Last time was with bigger names but still more a collection of cup upsets,as for most of those big names it was their last hurrah.but in some ways it was like Greece winning the 2004 euros,we were champions of Europe but nowhere near the best team in Europe. This season I'd say we still weren't the best team in Europe due to our league season but we did perform like worthy champions during our European nights.and unlike 2012 this is the start not the end of glory years with the majority of this squad.

Taking time off isn't just about physically resting from playing it's also about giving your mind a rest from the pressures. Even not playing they're still part of the preparation and in a position where they could be thrown into a high pressure situation at any moment.

A break mentally is probably even more important this time round given the relentless schedule of the last year.

Thinking back, apart from Tammy all our attackers had atleast one clutch goal en route to this trophy.

Giroud had the winner in Rennes then the four goals in Spain to help us top the group then the winner against Atletico in the first leg.

Ziyech gave us the crucial second of the tie against Leti.

Mount scored the opener vs Porto and the tie sealer vs Madrid.

Pulisic scored the opener against Real away.

Werner scored in the second leg.

Havertz ofcourse scored in Porto.

Even Callum opened the scoring in two group games and who knows what would have happened had he not done that.

Infact you could argue even with Tammy vs Rennes he eliminated any chance of a comeback, small but you never know.

Was properly a team effort.

There were so many outstanding bits about this CL win to the point it's hard to say which one is the most impressive of the lot.

One thing that arguably hasn't been mentioned much is the fact that we only trailed for 5 minutes in the entire CL campaign and those 5 minutes were pretty much unimportant - 4 minutes in the dead rubber Krasnodar game and 1 minute after conceding that late winner against Porto. We were always in control otherwise and "got" the game to play out the way we want to.

From a trivial POV that goal Porto scored was irritating.

Prevented us being unbeaten Champions and Mendy from getting the clean sheet record.
