    If Chelsea win and Newcastle finish 4th, I fully expect Alan Pardew to upload a video of him choking on his beer

    2005/2006 season Liverpool were defending Champions but finished outside of top 4.

    All top 4 qualified for the Champions League and Liverpool went into a playoff round at the expense of a Welsh qualifier - who agreed to do a playoff because knew they were crap, but could do with the money and publicity that came from being beaten by Liverpool.

    Either that, or they fancied making headlines by putting Liverpool out.

    I hope Chelsea don't do a Fulham, have a fairytale run only to bottle it in the final Bayern are clearly overwhelming favourites though.

    Chelsea! <3 'written in the stars' ..

    oh, and on a sidenote: Bayern are hugely unpopular outside the Bayrisch state here in Germany, but as we all know, they're heroes in Munich. i hope the home advantage doesn't give them that big of an advantage!

    Hopefully Bayern destroy Chelsea, any team that plays football like they did should be hung. Also Newcastle deserve the Champions league spot so come on Bayern!

    Of all the english teams to go through it had to be the one who played possibly the ****test football for a team they have. sigh could have had the likes of United, Arsenal or City try to play football instead we have the ones who just sit in the box...

    Added a poll to this thread. :yy:

    Also, I'm feeling pessimistic, so I'm going to predict a Chelsea win. :nothing:

    By all respect, I highly doubt that Chelsea will win it. Yes, everything is possible in this Champions League, but if its about who's more likely to win it's without doubt Bayern. Chelsea for sure have a chance, but I really can't see them beating Bayern in their stadium.

    An interesting fact: Bayern lost the CL final in 1999 but won it 2 years later. Similar could happen if they win this year (they lost the final in 2010)

    This thread already? Yes, Bayern are favourites but we should give them a good game, one would hope. If we have Luiz and Cahill fit, then our defence isn't too much weakened - we'll just be down to the bare bones with regards to our bench...

    I predict 2-0 Bayern, but it's an extremely tentative prediction.

    :facepalm: Yes, we were extraordinarily defensive against Barcelona - but don't pretend your club would have done any differently with success against Barcelona. Don't forget that we're the side that put four past Napoli, countered Benfica with success, stormed to victory against Valencia and only recently put five past Tottenham. We can attack very well at times.

    Surely your other defenders Cole Ivanovic Mikel Bosingwa Meireles Mata Ramires Lampard and Drogba will cover for them if they are out.

    I get the joke, but those 3 are suspended

    If Luiz and Cahill recover in time their defense looks okay, but Cahill might not make it and even if both make it, they still won´t have trained properly for a few weeks, there´s a huge difference between a player who´s just got back from an injury and one in great form.
