Despite finishing third and having the luxury of going straight in to the Group Stages of the Champions League, on Saturday night there is the very real prospect of Chelsea becoming the first London team to win the Champions League.
Chelsea beating Bayern would ordinarily be reason enough for us to throw ourselves off the nearest bridge but this year it will bring some pleasure as the cretins down the road will be crying off to play their European football on Channel 5.
Last Sunday brought the surreal thought that I’d actually like United to win the league. However that thought evaporated when I watched Fergie’s face go from exited puppy to dejected alchy just finding out the corner shop was out of Special Brew in fact i rewound and played back several times after they showed it on MotD. I didn’t watch the City celebrations, who would want to?
I recommend you all do the same on Saturday night, a Chelsea win will see me heading over to a Spuds blog to watch the toys fly out of the pram and watch Arry be kicked from pillar to post. A Chelsea loss and I will be glued to my screen watching Drogba cry in Terry’s arms, and thinking I wonder if Mata made the right choice (and how much can we have him for). I have never laughed louder than when Terry missed that potential match winning spot kick against United in 2008, especially because of the way he straightened his armband as he walked up.
Schadenfreude at times like this it’s all you’ve got.
