I hate to admit it but I was cheering for Man U. Sorry about your loss.

jonny - so sorry, watched streaming on-line and felt John Terry's pain, know it's a moment he will dwell on for a long time - he deserves a much better result.

This event even made it on the local sports news broadcast at least here in Manhattan. Looked like a real nail biter.

sorry mate, i can't believe that i was cheering on man u, lesser of two evils in my mind, there's only one blue team in west london and it's not chelsea...up the r's!

It *is* only a game. Isn't it?

I didn't care who won until I saw that arrogant cheating diver miss his cocky penalty. Then I was gutted that they won. My deepest sympathy.

i can't stand the brilliant ronaldo! i'm glad his wasn't the winning goal! chelski had the majority of the game and hit the woodwork twice... if either had gone in it would have been a worthy match winner. so man utd do the double... as a gooner that hurts. poor old terry... at least he's rich beyond his wildest imaginings. what on earth was drogba playing at!?
it's a shame chelski didn't win... i guess we'll now have to endure another season of the fans going on about how they miss 'the special one.' but he never got chelski this far... nor did he get them playing so well in a big game. they were extremely unlucky.
interesting that frank was the only player to talk to the tv after the game. i guess his recent family loss puts a loss like this into perspective. thus proving 'it is just a game.'
hard luck jonny. disappointed for you. we should've won against barcelona... i think i know how you feel. :-(

i can't tell you how many conversations i've had with people over here in my small little Ohio community about that game. many more people watched and were drawn in than i ever would have expected. in my neck of the woods, american football rules the roost - but soccer (football) is gaining more and more ground. in many ways - european soccer is more popular than MLS.
long live cheslea blue.
