Chelsea’s Champions League pedigree still sets the standard for English clubs

Good read if u got a few minutes to spare.

Summary: Chelsea won all there is to win in Club football within a decade of Roman's reign so other PL Club's should stop giving excuses.

City tried same approach but not there yet
"In all, Chelsea have competed in 14 Champions League campaigns, during which time they have become the first London club to win the trophy, lost a final on penalties, and reached the semi-finals on no fewer than 7 occasions. What that means is that in the Champions League era they have been almost as good as Manchester United"

My favourite part of the article :

"Yet that does not tell the whole story. Chelsea are in fact the elephant in the room in this discussion, since they run counter to the general assumption that Champions League arrivistes cannot quickly break into the big club cartel. The side that José Mourinho built with Roman Abramovich’s money almost reached their first final in 2005, when only Luis García’s phantom goal separated the sides in the semi-final at Anfield. The side that Guus Hiddink inherited via Avram Grant and Luiz Felipe Scolari would almost certainly have reached the final in 2009 but for the antics of the Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo, and not only that they would have stood a more than decent chance of beating Manchester United in Rome. The team that finally won the Champions League in 2012 were on their sixth manager in five years since Mourinho, yet still playing in a recognisable and highly effective way, rather giving the lie to the theory that you need an experienced and steady hand at the tiller to have any chance in Europe"

...i mean if you have the luck, anything is possible. RDM's chelsea were quite fortunate to win CL, they were more or less outplayed by their last 2 opponents and they werent even top 4 in the league that season.
^United were lucky because Terry slipped in 2008 and Bayern switched-off and concede 2 goals in final 3 min in 1999?

Looks like luck is everywhere you know :D...so basically united won because opposition screwed-up and not because they deserved

In 04-05, we were eliminated by the ghost goal by Liverpool. In 05-06, we went out in penalties in semi finals. In 07-08,...In 2009 horror Referee show at bridge cost us against Barca in 1-1 draw.

We surly dint win CL with our best team or when we played best...But we were unlucky several times to miss it as well.

RDM team came back from 1-3 deficit to beat Napoli at home , Beat Barca fair and squad 3-2 on aggregate with 10 men for 60min , Beat Bayern after going 1-0 down with 5 min left.

That team made its own luck...nothing just come out of the blue to win it for them
Yes of course, luck's an important part of any team's success.
is there a buy back clause for Falco because from all indication the Athletico Madrid star is back
Just....no...lol
we got another Atletico Madrid star that is banging in the goals
Atletico might reach CL final again this year
And lose in the final again.
Simeone is cursed if they lose again
I'd say Griezmann is cursed. Lost 2 Champions League finals and a Euro final.
they were damn unlucky first time round. i hope they win it. i can honestly see both madrids making the finals again this year lol
If there is a chance of that happening Atletico will get Øverbø as ref for the semis, and get knocked out. Can confirm. :'(
who needs Griezmann when you got El nino :P
City will mostly likely go-through with 1-1 or 2-2 draw in next leg. Because Monaco defending is as Sh*ty as city's and they will concede a couple in next leg again.
That was fun. Like watching a high school soccer game where both teams are horribly trained but very athletic.
Yep. Kinda reminds me of college basketball games with momentum swings, passion, raw talent and mistakes galore
What a clown fiesta at City
KDB is so good
where was this falcao when he was at chelsea!
I'm happy he is doing well
El tigreeeeeee
LOL Falcao, what kind of pen was that?
Well he made up for it. What a lob
