WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD.. Its Chelsea 1 Bayern 1 [Super HD Wallpapers]

Atlast proved the critics that WE are THE ” PRIDE OF LONDON “. We become the first club from London to win the Champions League. 

For Abramovich, he tried the Tinkerman, the Special One, the director of football, the World Cup winner, the European Cup winner, the Champions League specialist, and the young upstart – but, in the end, it took the caretaker to win Europe’s biggest prize for Roman Abramovich. Di Matteo, former MK Dons boss and sacked by West Brom before becoming Villas-Boas’ assistant, came in to steady the ship, to hold the fort until the summer when a ‘proper’ coach could be found, one who could propel the club into the owner’s dreamland.

Di Matteo’s final game as interim manager since taking over from Andre Villas-Boas ended with a dramatic 4-3 win on penalties against Bayern in their own Allianz Arena after the game ended 1-1. He was warmly embraced by owner Roman Abramovich as they collected the trophy the Russian has wanted ever since he started pumping his millions into Stamford Bridge nine years ago.

“Football is crazy and unpredictable and I don’t think anybody could have predicted what has happened in the last three months. I feel great and I’m pleased for everyone connected with the club.” -De Matteo

Petr Cechwho saved a penalty from Arjen Robben in extra-time and another from Ivica Olic in the shootout, said: “It was a rollercoaster ride, we all enjoyed it. “When it goes to extra-time there is pressure and I thought Robben would go for power and shoot that way. 

“Today I faced six penalties and six times I went the right way. Whatever happens to Di Matteo he has got two fantastic cups. He’s done enough to get the job but now it is up to the board to decide.”

Ashley Cole claimed a Champions League winner’s medal at the third attempt after defeats in 2006 with Arsenal and 2008 with Chelsea. He said: “I’m lost for words. We should have probably lost the game with the amount of chances they had. “We rode our luck but you need luck in this competition if you’re going to win it.”

Accused of being an “actor” by some because of his theatrics, this time he put in a performance more in keeping with the power and poise which has made him such a feared opponent for defences. He scored with a bullet header to equalise against Bayern before converting the crucial penalty for Chelsea’s victory.

While there is plenty to admire about Drogba’s qualities on the pitch, it is a tribute to the 2006 and 2009 African Footballer of the Year that he uses his fame to try to bring peace to his native Ivory Coast. He is one of the 11 members of Ivory Coast’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission and, although his team-mate Frank Lampard was talking about his value to Chelsea, he also summed up what he means to so many.”He is a hero,” Lampard said.

“It was [fate],” said the 34-year-old, whose penalty to clinch Chelsea’s victory may be his last kick for the Stamford Bridge outfit. “I believe a lot in destiny. I pray a lot. It was written a long time ago. God is wonderful. This team is amazing,” said Drogba.

Didier Drogba has been the best centre forward of his type, certainly in the Premier League, for the past eight years,” former Manchester United defender and Sunderland manager Steve Bruce told BBC.

FACT-O-PEDIA:

. Bayern had never lost a penalty shootout in a European cup competition -four victories.

. English clubs have only lost penalty shootouts against other English clubs.

All five previous finals in the Champions League era that featured extra time were all decided by a    penalty shootout.

Didier Drogba has now scored 45 European goals, most among current Chelsea players. Lampard is on    24 and Fernando Torres is on 15.

. Thomas Mueller becomes the first German to score in a Champions League final since Stefan    Effenberg in 2001.

. Bastian Schweinsteiger’s yellow card was the fastest ever in a Champions League final.

. No London club has ever won the Champions League. Only five European capitals have produced a winner – Madrid (9), Amsterdam (4), Lisbon (2), Bucharest (1) and Belgrade (1).

. Arjen Robben is not the only player that has played for these two clubs. Others are Michael Ballack, Claudio Pizarro, Brian Laudrup, Erland Johnsen and Mark Hughes.

. Ryan Bertrand will be making his European debut tonight. He is the first player to make his Champions League debut in a final, but not the first to make his European debut in a European Cup/Champions League final. 30 years ago, Nigel Spink made his European debut for Aston Villa, who beat Bayern Munich in the 1981/1982 Champions Cup final.

    • I think it’s a pretty safe bet to say that whatever team becomes champions of Europe, will become champions of the world and win the FIFA Club World Cup. Unless you think the champions of South America or Africa can beat Europe’s best… Which is highly unlikely if you ask any sane person. CHELSEA ARE THE CHAMPIONS OF THE WORLD! That familiar gold patch stitched onto Europe’s best teams like Barcelona and Inter Milan who’ve had it the past couple of years, will be on Chelsea’s fittingly gold-trimmed jerseys for the 2012/2013 season. Di Matteo all the way!

      • We’ll just have to wait and see. Remember the South American representative is Santos with Neymar, Ganso, Elano etc. There not a bad team so it’s up to you to underestimate them.

  1. I was waiting for your post as soon as the match ended yesterday. LOL We were glued to the television at my house. I told my son that while we anticipated Bayern winning, Chelsea may very well sit back, defend and score on either a quick counter or a set piece to steal the result. Drogba’s goal was incredible! Wow!!! A great season ending to a difficult season for Chelsea. Congratulations all around!

    • Bayern definitely was 2nd part of Barcelona..They attacked and kept knocking at our door with Robben hitting the post in the early minute and penalty miss by him!! We just kept believing and Drogba with his bullet header chalked out Muller’s goal…Chelsea were also prepared more than Bayern because we wanted this cup more that the German….Thanks for waiting for my post…BTW, it was written in the destiny that Chelsea will win!! Have a good 2 months vacation! 🙂

  2. Great stuff… I’ve been following and reading your blog for most of this season and it’s been great to see how your team has progressed.. It’s been a fairytale ending for Chelsea. I think it’s been fantastic. Wherever Chelsea’s been, whether it was high or low, your blog has covered it all. Great stuff. I would’ve never expected Chelsea to beat Bayern, but again, congratulations!!! Dreams do come true.

  3. Congrats, Chelsea-ites. Cracking win, or so I’m told! Will have to watch highlights on Thursday when this year without sport ends. From what I’m told, though, you came from nowhere!

  4. Congrats was rooting for you guys again, im going to miss Drogba and i hope terry doesnt go to jail too bad they dont have freedom of speech over there 😦

  5. Congradulations! And I am saying that and am also a Spurs fan! Thanks to Chelsea’s amazing victory, I will be watching Spurs in the Europa, as opposed to the Champions League. Oh well, you guys really deserved it after beating Barca and Bayern. Way to go Chelsea.

  6. This was a CRAZY season! Seriously…. And the way it ended, with an FA Cup and Champions League trophy was truly unexpected… As a Blues fan, I deeply appreciated that our boys kept the blue flag flyin’ high, from Stamford Bridge to Wembly to Munich…. And what’s crazier is that Chelsea also won the FA Youth Cup and are playing in the final of the FA Womens’ Cup…. If we win that too, we will dominte English FA Cups…. Way to go Chelsea!!!

  7. I made a dedication about Chelsea’s season on my blog and I named Chelsea’s FA Cup and Champions League victory as the Prestigious Double. Chelsea already has a Double during the Ancelotti reign. FA and CL is two prestigious trophies and winning them both definately earned Chelsea a Prestigious Double. Don’t you think that is fitting?
