A side that has had an indifferent season, goes 2-0 down, has only 10 men and are playing 'the best' side in the world on their own ground, comes back to win the tie. How is can that be 'antifootball'.
Many defenders have had brilliant careers without ever scoring a goal.
Chelsea played the only way they could and WON the tie.
The English game is fast, hard and entertaining, that is why it is the most watched football on the planet.
Barca, Real, Bayern and the 2 Milans would battle to make the top 5 in the EPL. Half their teams would constantly be out with injuries. The top EPL teams play far more games than any of their European counter parts, so they have to be stronger and fitter.
The final will be decided between the best 2 goalkeepers in the world, Cech and Neuer.
Surely Di Matteo has done enough to be permanent manager?
