Has to be Bayern, the sponsor doesn’t seem red like Atletí‘s KIA so must be Bayerns T-Mobile.

Has anyone been on Bayern’s website recently? They’ve got a squad list obviously but the individual information for each player is a bit mad, they’ve got ‘motto’, ‘marital status’, ‘favourite drink’. Can’t see any injury information on there though.

I’m slightly disappointed that arson isn’t listed as one of Breno’s hobbies.

Terry is allowed to lift the cup if Chelsea win.

I hate Chelsea with a fiery passion.

Them winning would have been unbearable even with the LOLS of watching Terry have to sit it out, but if that cunt gets to go up in his suit and lift it over Lampard i’ll probably put something through my TV.

I just don’t get the decision.

Talk this morning was that if he was injured he could have gone up but because he’s suspended he couldn’t. In that article it says that Uefa rules only keep him off the bench.

If is the case why has it never (to my memory), happened before - a la Keane ‘99 - did they just not question it? or did they ask and were told no.

I think that it also says a lot about chels, in general, and Terry in particular that instead of taking the punishment and shuttin’ the fuck up, they have decided that, for some reason, this is a special case and he should be treated as an exeption.

A so-so-season? Scoring 17 goals in 27 games for a struggling Cologne side? This season is one of his best so far. Podolski is one of the first names on the team sheet of the national team along with Schweinsteiger, Neuer and Klose.

I’ll give you the win in the friendly, means soooo much wink

IMO yes, a so-so season from one whom I expect to be one of the best in the world (and who has underperformed bellow what I perceive to be his potential for several seasons now). Definitely not as good a season as that of Reus, hence him losing his place to Reus in the last important friendly.

Not sure why you need to “give” me that result. It’s not hugely relevant, it’s only more relevant that assessing the future performance of the German national side by summing up the individual performances of German players at their clubs, which is a terrible logic and was the start of this discussion. smile

Doesn’t matter what Podolski does at domestic level, he has always been spectacular for the national team, regardless of his club circumstances. Also I’m pretty sure this is his highest goalscoring season in the top flight of his career, that’s a better than average season in my book.

Definitely not a bad or mediocre season, yes, we are talking about fluctuations at the top level. But not as good as his talent should provide IMO. Just in the most recent Budensliga review Raphael Honigstein was writing how Poldi “woke up from a month of slumber”. And before that he was also injured. Had his form from the first half of the season continued (13 goals in the first 14 starts, plus five assists), then it would have been a truly excellent season for him.

If you would see at what level Cologne was playing under Solbakken, you would revise your opinion. Podolski is the sole reason that Cologne still has a chance to grab the relegation play-off place. Again, 17 goals in 27 games for such a brutal team, that is marvellous.

And a friendly is a friendly, nothing more or less. Doesn’t win you championships, especially not in February, therefore you can have it wink It would be also very short-sighted to draw any conclusions from the 3-0 win over the Netherlands last year, it was also a frindly. In the end I don’t really care about the national team, just want to point out that the german team turned up in the qualifiers (10 wins out of 10) and was successful in the last major tournaments, though they didn’t win a title. The pool of talent that Jogi Löw can choose from is amazing imo and such a difference to the crap that played for german around 10-12 years ago.

For further discussion on this national team topic, please continue it in the corresponding thread wink

I don’t disagree with all this. I’m just comparing him to my (and not only mine) expectations from him. And the bar is set higher than that - Reus took Gladbach from struggling from survival until the last day of the last season to title contenders this season (which will probably end as a CL spot in the end, either #3 or #4). That’s the level I’m talking about, and IMO he would have equaled it had he maintained his form from the first part of the season.

All right, dicks on the table, who’s going to win it?

I think it will be Bayern, 2-1, typically German. I think Chelsea’s list of suspended players hurts them more and I think home field will make a difference.

David Luiz to start despite being injured and get absolutely twatted by Mario Gomez and hauled off at half time, by which time Bayern will be 2-0 up. Bayern to win 3-0, Gomez with at least 2.

I’m going for 4-1 Bayern, with a penalty and a red card all chucked in there. Overall I think Bayern have too much pace and skill for Chelsea and I can see the match passing some of the Chelsea players by (notably Lampard and Essien if he starts).

I can’t see past a Chelsea win to be honest. I do fully realise that is quite the controversial statement, one i may get slated for.

Having watched Bayern last Saturday against Dortmund, even though Dortmund are so so good and they seem to have Bayerns number, i think Chelsea can really get at them. Drogba loves a final, and can really get at the heart of Bayerns defense. With Mata in behind, he can cause all sorts of trouble, dragging players all over the filed, leaving room for Lampard to work his way into the areas that are free.

As for Bayern going forward, i think this game will pass Robben by, in other words, i think he’ll bottle it. Just my opinion though, also feel this could pass Ribery by as well. Gomez will definitely get at Cahill and Luiz, but if they can somehow keep him quiet, then they will be doing very well.

I’m going 1-0 Chelsea, Drogba with the winner.

Ok I am going for a long shot but I want Robben to be out and Uefa to let Bayern play new signing Shaqiri then he just destroys Chelsea. On a more realistic level I want Bayern to win mainly because I would rather see spurs in the comp next year and I wouldn’t mind if they did it quite comfortably 6-2 including some glols

Might as well stick with the prediction I made after the first leg of the semis (pretty sure I was the only person on here to predict a Bayern vs Chelsea final at that stage):

I bet that you look good on Zidane’s floor - 19 April 2012 12:51 PM

Bayern 2-1 Chelsea

Yeah that’s a ridiculous comment. They beat Barca over two legs, have got some great players and a manager who comes across as a nice man.

Although if you’re talking about John Terry lifting the trophy, yeah that’d would make me puke.

Like most people here, head says Bayern while strange feeling says Chelsea. Bayern are better with better players and less suspended players, more experience of finals and they are German. But the pressure is all on them. They have had a bad season domestically and the home factor could play against them.

I wouldn’t mind Chelsea winning if it weren’t for one person - John Terry. The idea of him lifting the trophy and lording it for the next twelve months and beyond makes me really really want Bayern to win, which is a shame as I don’t really have much against the rest of the squad, but like so much in life, it only takes one person to ruin things for everybody else!

Don’t like the thought of Tymoshchuk at CB, massive mismatch with Drogba and also means Kroos has do drop back alongside Schweinsteiger, meaning they’ll miss his creativity further forward and don’t have a tackler in midfield. Is there any chance van Buyten will be fit?

I cannot see Chelsea winning this. Although its a neutral venue I think being at ‘home’ will benefit Bayern massivley. I think Chelsea’s makeshift defence won’t be able to stand up to the kind of pressure Bayern will put it under (a different type of attack from what they defended so well against in Barcelona).

Mind you there is the feeling of fate surrounding Chelsea in this competition.
