Maybe I'm going too far, but I don't even see it being close.

I would have to agree. The only thing Chelsea have going for them is that they've been written off by pretty much everyone - even many of their own supporters - so all the expectation is on Barca.

Anyone heard about the Azkals team from the Philippines? I like James.

We love making things hard for ourselves at this stage of the season! I've got a feeling Norwich may get something from their game against City at the weekend though so if we can beat Villa I'll be able to relax again...

Well the world of football continues to surprise.

Barca battered Chelsea all night but somehow lost after Messi's (of all people) mistake. Still fancy the home side to batter them at the Camp Nou but if Chelski set up shop like they did tonight it won't be easy!

Oh, Lionel!

Looks like this is Ronaldo's year.

Unfortunately.

The team seems too centered on Messi recently (more so than usual). Even in El Clasico he was trying to breaking through several defenders at once. It just looked sloppy. Oh, and it seems Chelsea developed the recipe to beating Barça. It was only a matter of time.

I have to say it's been a disappointing year. A Real Madrid loss to Bayern Munich would make it substantially better, though....

I wanted Madrid to win purely because of Ronaldo but in terms of a more even game I'm kind of glad we have the final that we do. The thought of 90 minutes of Chelsea parking the bus as Real tried to break them down wasn't a tantalizing prospect.

It's ridiculous that so many players will be missing from both Chelsea and Bayern though just because they picked up two yellow cards in Europe since the new year. So unfair.

What a horrible evening.

My reply to shained didn't make sense and I hadn't even had a drink... "I'm trust in Mr. Pardew."

Damn you, rage typos!

It's ok though, we still have the F.A. Cu-- oh. Well, there's always the Champion's Lea-- ah.

Um.

...Community Shield winners, 2011?

My prediction: We will do terribly and he'll get so much stick from the press afterwards that he'll be sacked immediately and back at Albion by August!

I would have way more faith in Newcastle if they hadn't just been whipped by Wigan, but hopefully they'll be up for it.

Our lineup yesterday was weak.

Park's first start in 3 months...Giggs hasn't been good since the turn of the year...arguably our best player this season, Tony V, left on the bench. Yup, it was a bizarre team. Overpowered in every area. Credit to City, they were simply better than us, man-for-man. People keep going on about our experience but that isn't enough without the quality to back it up.

He should have stuck with 4-4-2; Nani, Welbeck and Rooney were fantastic against Everton last week. We only condeded 4 because of defensive lapses, not because of our formation. Seems unfair to drop an attacker based on that.

I'm confident in us playing defensively when Vidic and Fletcher are on the pitch but with last night's squad that just didn't make sense.

Giggs came through against Norwich, but you've got a point. And yes, it was truly maddening Valencia wasn't in the match.

Maybe we can catch them on GD, maybe we can't.
