    yes you do

    the only team in your league you should want success for is your own, and quite frankly using other countries as an example is ridiculous they should follow are example its our sport after all...

    how to put this if you saw two people holding onto the edge of a building you know one of them and hate there guts but you have only really heard of the other one so cant form an opinion on the matter you obviously save the one you dont know right?
    'It's our sport'. :lolwut:

    It ceased being 'our' sport somewhere between losing 6-3 to Hungary, watching Brazil win five World Cups, losing to the USA, hiring Fabio Capello and playing the world's worst ever match of football against Algeria.

    Because Chelsea are the antithesis of what many football fans believe a club should be and stand for, that's why.
    Hell, even as a Chelsea fan I agree with this...:erm:

    One reason I'm routing for Bayern. I predicted they'd win the competition. My satisfaction in being correct far outweighs my desire for an English side to win the Champion's League.

    You want your team to be the best in the world, if they aren't? You want them to be the best in Europe, if they aren't again? You want to be the best in England. I could not stand Chelsea winning the Champions League, or any other English side, because I want United to be winning it. I don't get angry at fans of other English clubs for feeling this way, because I totally understand why they would want United to lose.

    I wanted Chelsea to beat Liverpool in the FA Cup, because I hate Liverpool (obviously) more than Chelsea - that's the way you pick which team you support. Bayern lost to us in '99, they deserve a chance to win it this time

    Also, Chelsea do not deserve to be in the final. Barca outclassed them and were unlucky, Chelsea are in no way the second best team in Europe - they just got lucky!

    But is the Champions League winner really the best team in Europe? Can you really say a team finishing 6th in their league is the best in Europe? It's a knockout competition, teams can luck it out and get to the final and even win it on occasion. The same happens in the English cups.

    I don't think many people would argue against Barcelona being better than Chelsea, yet Chelsea beat them. Just like not many would argue Blackburn are better than Man U, yet Blackburn beat them.

    The Champions League contains the best teams in Europe but the best team doesn't always win it. Unlike national leagues.

    Well I'm a Forest fan. A Midlander.

    Don't want to see a London club win it. Especially not a London club thats run the way Chelsea are by Abramovic.

    Plastic club that got to the final by playing anti-football against Barca, claiming a tactical masterclass when in fact they were just incredibly lucky.

    You won't hear a peep from the Chelsea fans in Munich seeing as their plastic flags won't be provided. No doubt they will boo Bayern as well being the classy club they are.

    Welsh. I will be supporting Germany at the Euros too. Why? Because their team is awesome and full of quality talent. Bayern also have a quality history unlike the plastic Chelsea, their terrible chants and terrible plastic flags. Enough of a reason. Sickening to see any plastic team made of money win anything, especially something like this. Also it's not like they are playing like Barcelona and playing quality football now is it!? COME ON BAYERN.

    Because the thought of John ****ing Terry lifting the Champions League trophy makes me sick.

    Plus it would deny either Spurs or Newcastle a Champions League place. Nice to freshen things up every now and then.

    Bayern have no debt, have low ticket prices and play in an extremely competitive and vibrant league which isn't populated with loads of billionaire owners. They earned their way to the top.

    They're like the anti-Chelsea in many respects. Oh and no one likes John Terry.

    Chelesea were the third most successful English club behind Manchester United and Arsenal, in the five to ten years before Abramovich, with two FA Cups and a Cup Winners Cup. They had recent success and a good foundation. The Abramovich money certainly helped to turn them into title challengers and regular Champions League qualifiers (and contenders) but to suggest they had no success prior to the money is untrue.

    They did win it. Two years later in 2001. It's a completely different team now so I don't see what relevance 1999 has (or that, as they lost the final, they somehow deserve to win one).

    Defending is not anti-football. It is an important part of the game.

    Diving and simulation, however, is and Barcelona have been as guilty of this as almost anyone.
