The Game that was seen around the world

 For you Herr Terry the war is over
.
 A game that needs no introduction so I'm not going to give it one. I'm with Greg and the boys at A Kent Pub on this one and if you think he's joking about Mine Host in lederhosen you just don't know how far these boys down in Kent are prepared to go. Our most important game of the season and we aren't even playing.

The Game That Was Seen Around The World ... Spurs and Bayern Munich vs Chelsea.
.
 Guten Tag Meine Damen und Herren,
 .
 Deep in Kent's leafy glades lies a converted Bier Keller bedecked in nothing but red. At least its German red and nothing to do with some close North London neighbours of our beloved Spurs.
 .
Mine Host looks rather fetching in his borrowed lederhosen Just don't tell him that face to face. At least his Spurs roots eternal are shining through. Yep not a speck of blue to be seen. Fine german ale is available in spades with the English stuff reserved for a hopeful celebration immediately at games end . English pints raised in relief that Spurs are really in the Champs League next season.
.
Ahead of those anticipatory celebrations how did Die Bayern triumph.
 .
Who's In and Who's Out.
 .
The inspirational leader, John not Adolf(only kidding) is suspended as is his very able deputy Ivanovic. After Terry's abject display against Liverpool that may prove a blessing. As well the Brazilian Barcelonian hero Ramires is a biggish miss. Raul Meireles is also suspended. A handy trio plus one.
.
Bayern are weakened being without regulars David Alaba,Luiz Gustavo,and the exceptional Holger Badstuber. No that is his real name We are not making it up and yes he does play exceptional football.
.
On balance our pub reckon the loss of he of great football character and allegedly lacking elsewhere is a big loss.Ramires will be missed for his biting creativity as well.
 .
Still with names like Mata,Schweinsteiger ( don't you just love it), Lampard,and Muller orchestrating the moves in midfield then it seems evenly poised. But hang on just before we get to the big clash perhaps the reason why our pub are edgily optimistic.
 .
Ribery and Robben Versus ...
 .
Spurs reckon they are flying with Bale and Lennon. Yes if Bale plays wing and Aaron is prepared to take on his man then it adds a whole dimension to fantastic forward play.
.
So if Arjen,he of Flying Dutchman fame ( Rafa's best mate) and Frank perform up to expectations then Ashley Cole and Jose Boswinga are in for a fierce old time. Surely says our lawyer it may open up Chelsea.
.
Barcelona's "weakness" was no speed on the wings. Pass upon pass was meant to give birth to intricate triangulations within the Chelsea penalty area. Ergo a resultant gap followed by a goal scoring opportunity. In short push, pull, down and through the middle. Unfortunately for Spurs and Barcelona it never happened often enough. No plan B either.
 .
Not the only peg our pub are hanging their hat of hope on though. No the big battle is just a little further ahead and in a bit.
.
Didier Drogba vs Mario Gomez ... An Ivorian vs a Mexican.
 .
Nope despite the name Mario was born, bred and raised in Deutschland.Still it remains the pivotal battle in the whole Cup final.
 .
Drogba damaged Spurs in the FA semi. Did it to Liverpool in the final. So a big game player but one who does have off days and spectacularly so. Sent off in his last Champs League final. We can only hope.
 .
Mario Gomes at 27 years a veritable goal scoring machine much admired by many renowned judges including a certain manager hugely skilled in the dark art of water bottle demolition. Bet Arsene is watching and hoping on Saturday night. Can David Luiz move from the Play Station to the real world. Lets hope not.Apparently practising on the said game this week. What was that Gary Neville joke.
.
Gomes has a happy knack of connecting with crosses fired in by speedy wingers. Perhaps our religious Jermaine might pick up some tips. He'll be watching as well. Congrats Jermaine on the 17 goals this season and good luck in the Euros.
.
Back to the matters at hand ... what do you reckon. Certainly our sentiments and prediction is clear here ...
.
At A Kent Pub.
.
We don't mind a nervous nail biter, nor a penalty shoot out so long as its the red of Germany that has the last laugh.
 .
Prost ... look they were first to finish in the little matter of WW2 ... surely Die Bayern can do likewise here ... Auf Wiedersehen ..  Greg Meyer.   coybm.

Wir haben diesen Idioten Harry zu vielen Dank für diesen schrecklichen, spannenden Abend. Aber mit ein wenig Glück wird Chelsea gehämmert, und Sporne werden einen Punkt in der KL . einleitende Runden stehlen. Trotzdem sollte es nicht geschehen sein. Wenn Chelsea-Gewinn dann Verwüstet, bedauert für die Ewigkeit seine Feigheit am Villa-Spiel. Glück bevorzugt das tapfere nicht das feige!

So bumsen Sie Sie Harry Redknapp. Sie sind ein nutzloser wanker. Villa war Ihr Waterloo und München. Jetzt beginnt der Exodus. Auf Wiedersehen Modric, auf Wiedersehen Ballen, auf Wiedersehen dem Besten!
