Wiziwig.tv | The UEFA Champions League - Final | Watch live and free: Bayern Munchen vs Chelsea
I'm not going tthis isn't my favourite competition in the world and I didn't even bother going to any of the group games this season due my beloved club hiking up the prices again. I wasn't alone and funny enough,they have knocked a £5 off for next seasons group games. W*nkers!
Anyway,again I'm not going to lie,I cannot wait to get over to Germany. I am one lucky sod as both clubs only have 17,500 tickets. I'm not too lucky in the pocket mind you as this cost me a fortunes (£649.34p to be exact!) And I have to renew my season ticket (£750) before June 1st.
Chelsea are taking an estimated 40,000 over there and a cool 2.2 million Bayern fans applied for their tickets. The city is going to be full and I would not be surprised if there was some trouble. I hope not!
This is simply a massive game with so much riding on it. Chelsea need to win to get into the Champions League next season and of course Tottenham need Bayern to win to stay in the 4th spot. If Chelsea fail to win then Robbie Di Matteo can kiss goodbye to his chances of the Chelsea job and we could end up with Capello or even worse Benitez. There is of course the chance for Chelsea to become the first London club to ever win the European Cup. No doubt,fans of other London clubs will want Bayern to win but that is totally understandable.
As for Bayern,well they are at home so the pressure on them to win is huge. Munich expects and I hope of course they cave in to the weigh of this pressure. On paper they have a better side than Chelsea and the bookies make them firm favourites. With home support,it would be daft to back against them when you look at it logically. However,Chelsea have defied logic in this competition this season so don't write us off. If the game goes to penalties,well yea...write us off!
My honest opinion is we will miss our suspended players more than Bayern particulary Ramires and of course JT but I'm hoping we can do it. For some reason I think Salamon Kalou will score so I've backed him at 9/2 to score at any time during the match (Am I mad? Yes I am barking I know) If he doesn't then hopefully someone else from the Ivory Coast might chip in with the odd goal or two (rather than getting himself sent off like he did in the last CL final)
Good luck Chelsea. Cya over there! Enjoy the game chaps and if we lose,don't take the piss out of me too much please
