An all English final would be great for liquidity.

Probably the best chance to stop City going all the way too

C'mon Chelski!

Americans have swiftly moved on from the actual match to demanding Jim Beglin be tarred and feathered for uttering the words 'Latino temperament'

C'mon Chelski!

I would never back against Real in this competition, the CL is in the very DNA of the club. I fancy Real to score at some stage so Chelsea will have to. I thought Real were value at 4s for the entire thing before the first leg, they could end up being La Liga champions and AM and Barce play each other with RM having to play a tough game vs Sevilla. Real have pulled their form around in the way that City and Chelsea have since the start of the season. Be an interesting tie tonight because even if Chelsea score first its still on a knife edge.

I'm really torn to be honest, not sure who to root for!

I think Chelsea are a better team than Real at the moment but I think Real would have a better chance of beating City in the final. I keep changing my mind!!! :D

I know City easily beat Real over 2 legs last season but a final is a different ballgame and Real aren't going to get stage fright like maybe Chelsea would.

From a Liverpool fans pov though I have to cheer on Chelsea! If Chelsea do win the game between City & Chelsea on Saturday will be interesting watch. A City win would give them the title but how would both sides approach the game knowing they have a Champions League final in a few weeks?!

I am honour bound to support Modrick and I will never reveal why, that is all I will ever say on this topic. Enjoy your evening lads.

Your comment about stage fright is what I meant Pat. They are awesome in finals and haven't lost one since the 81 European Cup final. They are 9-0 in finals since then. I had to look up the two UEFA Cup finals lol

I know that run has to end and AM came very close a few years back but Real seem to either bomb out or go all the way.

No Ronaldo though, not even a Bale who can come off the bench.

On the plus side its a great opportunity for Benzema to be the main man and if Ramos is in Mortal Kombat mode anything's possible. And of course as Kai has said there's Modrick too!

As an add on to what you said Pat... I really think that when the history of a club reaches a certain stage in a competition that this can not only affect the performances on the pitch but also the intimidation level for the opposition. Those white jerseys at Real must have an empowering effect similar to Liverpools red IMO. It's subtle and I may be reading more into it but despite all Man Utds dominance under Fergie... They never had that aura in Europe the same as Real or Liverpool did

Yeah it's not the same team but only 2pts off top in la liga and only two games away from winning the CL again so they can't be that bad :D
