Champions of Europe 2012/13 Thread

Are Shakhtar still on their amazing unbeaten run? You can definitely see this being a proper game, with some caution, for 60 mins or so and then everyone subsciously realises let's not take any risks and keep it as a draw.

Been looking into when Club World Cup is on tv in UK. Appears it's not. Typical. United and Liverpool were both shown but they don't bother for us.

I don't get you guys.. I think he is a joke and just not good enough as a mid. Bring in Fellaini...

Hmm, and make the team even more unbalanced than it already is...

Anyone who doesn't think Mikel is any good is just deluded.

Wow. All I can say about that lineup really.

How much do you reckon Hazard and Oscar regret their moves?

I don't know when you guys started liking him, but I don't rate him as a starter to a top team. We don't have options so he is good enough.

The lineup is fine considering it's Nordwhatever. It's the subs bench that is laughable.

Who are you referring to?

No one in particular but I remember not many liked him last season.

Mikel? I thought you were on about Hazard or Oscar for a sec :lol:

Torres finally scored!! Exactly the balls he needs to be fed, though he did botch it at first attempt but lucky to get it on rebound.

I owe my mate 10p now, cheers Fernando :thdn: And no, Romeu isn't better than Mikel.

Mikel is better than Romeu. There are people who like Mikel and people who dislike him but I am a massive fan of his

He really did his best to mess it up, though.

No way. Romeu has shown he has better positioning for a DM and good passing to attackers(not just simple one-twos).

Romeu is better going forward and making us a bit more dynamic (not very hard atm) but overall Mikel is very slightly better, not much between them really and I wouldn't worry if either started a game.

OMG atleast give Marin some playtime.

Haha it looks like Luiz enjoys more playing any position except defense :D

Bolton didn't take the Europa League seriously so I don't like your chances

We seem to take the FA Cup seriously enough to win it most of the time so I'd hope that the effort on that is transferred to the Europa League. Not often you get to win European competitions whether their the premier or secondary one. Fear you're probably right though :(

Chelsea won the Cup Winners Cup back in the day, didn't they? A Europa League win would make them one of the few teams to win all 3 European Trophies, worth making it a priority I would say.

Really concerned why Marin doesn't get any game time. Surely this was an ideal time to give him 20 minutes?

Phew atleast we scored the 2nd one.

Romeu so much better than Mikel..

Let's not revert back to this myth.

Mikel is all of the following

1. A boss

2. Undroppable

3. One of the first names on the team sheet

4. The best anchor man in the Prem and, imo, probably the best DM in the Prem.

We're winning the Europa :cool:

When we're no longer European Champions would be my guess.

Also fm_94 knows :cool:

Why would the title need changing? History will always show Chelsea as the European Champions throughout the 12/13 season, until the final whistle of the Champion's League final this season anyway.
