    Ah well said - What team d'ya support by the way?
    Chelsea. Probably why I think they'll be in the final, plus mata, torres and sturridge making a new front 3.

    Hahah thought so. I knew there was something up or a bit of bias involved if someone agreed with my stance's regarding a club!

    Fine starting front three. You have that fella, eh, Drogba? Yeah a decent enough sub I suppose!

    Yeah, plus anelka and malouda(who is only good for assisting goals) on the bench. Seeing as they were the front 3 last season and worked really well for the first half of the season that's a good bench.

    football is unpredictable.Most likely Barca.And in current form Bayern could be there too.It practically would be a match between top 2 international teams: Spain vs Germany.Dont wanna see United again unless someones takes Barca out before the final.Madrid has a chnace too but Mourinho needs to become less whiny and Ronaldo less sellfish.I dont see any other top team besides United in England.City has not a team,Chelseas golden periods is over,Arsenal well.... no comment.It will be between Barca,Madrid,Bayern,Man United.

    I may be biased but please tell me how our golden period is over? We didn't win a trophy last season even though we were close to winning the league even with a 15 point gap between the leaders, we won the double the season before. We didn't win any trophies when mourinho left and grant took over but the next year we won the fa cup and ancelotti came and won us the double?
    We have a new younger team as well so you can't say we're too old and when we faced man united a few weeks ago we matched them in nearly every aspect but they just took their chances and we didn't. Last season with our start you wouldn't have said our golden period is over, even though united started the way we started this season.
    I can take you saying we're not reaching the final, but saying that our golden period is over is a load of rubbish.

    Chelseas golden period is over ,as they had a better chance of winning the CL in the last 5-6 years than now.They should have won it in 2008 but were maybe a little bit unlucky.But now the competition is much tougher.Barca,Madrid,Bayern and to some extent even Man U and Milan are much stronger.Back then Chelsea was easily top 2 but now even top 4 might be slightly stretching it.They have a chance still but I wouldnt put my money on them.In premiere league they face a tougher competition with the team chemistry United has and the squad(probably the best in EPL) City has.Chelsea could become a top team(with a ongoing golden period) again by some incredibly performances(win EPL,CL) but until then the verdict is that there golden period is over.Plus financial fair play rule will restrict them even further.

    You do know that the highest we've payed for a player this season was 23 million. Man united spent 30 million on players although they're in debt, Man city have spent 60 million, liverpool have spent 60 million, we have spent 40 million. Who is messed up the most in terms of fair play? It's not chelsea for sure because we have a new team and don't need any players, man city will keep on buying players, liverpool don't have a clue on who they're buying tbh. Chelsea have a team for the next 5 years and that's a fact so we're not under pressure to get players.
    So you're saying that chelsea aren't a top team, although over the past 5 years we're the 3rd best team in europe including last season? Ok the competition is a lot, but did you fancy man united's team to make the final of the champions league and win the prem? It looked like vidic and van der sar were the only consistant players for the first half of the season yet they won things.
    Chelsea's team is as good as the 2008 team that got in the final and is as good as the 2009 team that should have got into the final, compare the team player for player and you'll say that too. We've had two bad years in the CL to our standards and we're written off as contenders(we lost to inter who won the CL with ease and lost to man united when we were just getting out of our crisis). Look at madrid and bayern, bayern were lucky to get into the final two years ago, and madrid has got into one semi final in like 7 years.
    Also liverpool won the CL, that says it all.
    You act like all we are is just money and we buy players for no reason, we're not man city, we make like 2 or 3 buys per season to areas that need strengthening, unlike city who buy two first teams so we're not going to be affected by fair play, man united are just as affected as we are if my assumptions about fair play are right and you only spent what your club earns as they've been in debt since the takeover.

    I have an odd fancy that it would be someone surprising, Benfica maybe?

    The usual educated guess would be Barcelona.

    Mate, if Carlsberg made football seasons, that would be it. Imagine, after all this criticism, Wenger guides us to our second Champions League final and wins it, and we finish 6th jus to take da piss. Haha

    I still think City can reach the final although it's looking like a tough task. But then again Liverpool lost the first 3 games of the group stages when they won the Champions League in 2004/2005. I'm hoping that things will "click" into place for City in Europe. It has too. It would be a disaster if they exited at the group stages. Believe me it's something I really do fear.

    I actually think Arsenal have chance. They're pretty much out of the running for the Premier League title and I can't see them being too bothered about either of the domestic cups. So I think they'll focus on Europe for once and you may just get lucky.

    I magine if you finished 6th and Spurs 4th and then you won the Champions League? Arsenal would qualify ahead of Spurs as the winners are guaranteed a spot and because they'd have finished outside the top 4 they'd take the place of whoever finished 4th.

    What the hell are you talking about? So Torres getting back to form and Drogba being on the BENCH isn't enough, plus lukaku, sturridge and anelka aren't good enough as strikers. Sturridge has scored like 11 goals in 15 appearances but can't get into the striker spot so has to play on the wing. Make a statement when you look at the real picture. We don't have any *******s in our team besides keeping a clean sheet, this whole slow midfield business is gone now, did you see the way they played against bolton.
    Completely uninformed statement.

    Lol. Deluded mate. Chelsea can't compete with Barca/Real/United or even City. To say that they have a team for the next 5 years is mad too. Where's your world class replacements for Terry, Cole, Lampard, Drogba?

    And to say Liverpool don't know who they're buying is stupid too. They bought players to 'steady the ship' if you like while we improve after losing all our players, a decent manager and gaining a **** manager all before Kenny came back.
