Hearty congratulations to goal scorers Cardozo, Fernando and Ivanovic.Thanks to footballers from Benfica and Chelsea for the memorable finals.All the best for the season ahead.Dr. Cajetan Coelho
it is ok for the Benfica Manager to say that his team played better than Chelsea but if you don't put the ball in the net no matter if you played them of the park witch they didn't how do you expect to win
#1186Benfica were commanding and linking up brilliantly but their shots on goal were typical of the Continentals who aren't the BigWinners - Too much over-elaboration in the final 3rd with stray or weak pea-shooter shots that wouldn't trouble a Youth team member!They just weren't good enough like *Barca/*Dortmund who have experience of baiting and beating the offside trap of a rigid back-4.
Cannot understand why so many people including pundits and Chelsea fans feel they rode their luck at times. In terms of clear chances - strong shots on goal - there was nothing in it between the two sides; if anything Chelsea had the better chances if you include the actual goals.
1171.torn Sack Rafa and sell Torres. Neither of them have done anything for Chelsea ......Chelsea fans, little history, no brains!!Its you with no brain DOH,Torres won 2 europian cups now,Benitez im SURE has won the Europa League trophy with CFC.So who has no brain little man.
Don't cry for me Benfica, the truth is you are cursed to lose..
Nice to see Terry remember his PE kit for the 2nd year running.
1181@ Don't give up your day job.
Is everyone forgetting how that Barca player last year attacked JT's knee with his back?? And then the ref had the gall to send JT off!It caused a recurring injury that still flares up to this day, which is why he was injured for this final so not his fault he wasn't able to play. Why shouldn't he lift the cup?
@ 1179 medway. All so true. Ramires should have been subbed at half time at the latest. I don't agree with JT lifting cup last year, but he has some right this year featuring in other stages and simply being out through injury. The media hype is a joke don't know if they noticed our third choice goal keeper in full kit standing behind the trophy amongst others.
Chelsea fan - and congratulations to the team. Unlucky Benfica, you were best for most of the game, although you lacked the cutting edge.Liverpool fans - did you see those substitutions Rafa made to change our underachieving team - especially Ramirez, who under performed out of position? No? Nor did we!! Finally it's a EUFA rule that JT HAD to wear kit to lift the cup - and why shouldn't he? Doh!

@179 Laughed out loud in the middle of a library reading that comment!Message from all true Chelsea fans not the plastic ones "Rafa Benitez We want you to stay!"
AJAX. BAYERN. JUVE.And now CHELSEA.The ONLY clubs to have won all Euro cups.Read it and weep little haters because HISTORY WAS MADE last night.You can thank us for saving the PL's coefficient rating and getting your loser clubs back into Europe later :).
1171. torn Chelsea fans, little history, no brains!!Lots of trophies though!CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE
Can anyone believe John Terry put his shin pads on as well. LOL
Well done Chelsea on cl then el double. ;). But since cl manager sacked then el manger no renewed contract im wondering if you won the treble would you just shot the manger straight after lol
Agree with 1171, wasnt so long ago every chelsea fan i spoke to was slating rafa, now he is some sort of hero?, As for "bitter united fans" i would much rather have won the premiership than the Europa leage. Im not a united fan by the way. Just makes me laugh with all Abramovichs billions, and chelsea fans are ecstastic about a europa cup. Well done, maybe you will win the carling cup next year!
