I went to Sweden to see Chelsea play in the cup winners cup final, bloody expensive
It's okay. I can't go as being a utd member for 45 years doesn't entitle me to a ticket. I can get them on some rip of site,but 3 tickets and three flights would be way too much. I think it was close to £5k total.
That's ridiculous, watch it on the TV feet up with a glass of Londons Finest or 3 , if you do that you will win if you don't, you'll lose, don't say I didn't warn you
That's boogered it. I am working.
I think you may be right! I've been to two Champions League finals and flipping Utd lost in both of them
Stay away from them. Said in a Alex Ferguson voice!
I've only been to one - but they won it (and how!) Vs Bayern in 1999 Now that's what I would call a successful season.
Three euro finals and we have won all three. Rotterdam was the first, but it was cup winners cup!
Bazza was in the Moscow rain on the losing side.
Didn't you know.
This had me thinking last night of the highs and lows of following Chelsea for over 50 years, in particular the lows, some that spring to mind, I'm sure there's lots more I've forgotten, first up the 1967 FA cup final when we lost 2-1 to Tottenham, I was s young lad of 9 I remember crying all the way home on the train, the 1972 league cup final when we lost to Stoke 2-1, the 3-2 defeat to Leyton Orient at Bristsn Road in 1972, getting relegated at White Hart Lane in 1975 and getting a right hiding on the pitch before the game, going all the way up to Middlesborough on a wet Wednesday night and losing 2-0 in the play offs, losing to Arsenal in the 2002 F A cup final In Cardiff
But the worst was traveling all the way to Moscow to play Manchester Utd in the champions league final, it rained all day we were soaking wet, we couldn't get a drink the police were horrible and John Terry slipped taking his penalty meaning we lost, I was gutted
I guess you don't want to add losing to Arsenal in 2017 after an otherwise faultless* season?
* note : almost faultless, you hadn't qualified for Europe, but that was technically last seasons fault.
Nice gesture from Chelsea @Barry Haynes
As for the players making a donation, how about a months salary from each all prima donnas that make up the team.
See Don I told you we were alright, nice gesture from Chelsea, I think the players will donate a good amount
I would never say Chelsea were alright, my vocal chords wouldn't allow it.
That's really nice of Chelsea and Arsenal.
Can't get my usual vibe for the final tonight it seems pretty insignificant now.
I know what you mean, but you have to try for the sake of the kids who died, if you don't carry on they( the terrorists) have won
So England beat SA by 72 runs in the first ODI....
