A Fast Turn-Over
It may be just a little over two years since we all enjoyed that marvellous night over in the Allianz Arena, in Munich.
A night when, against all odds, we lifted the Champions League trophy after an epic penalty shoot-out win over Bayern Munich, but times, in that short space of time have certainly changed.
If you look at the starting eleven that Roberto Di Matteo selected, you`ll see that only 4 players remain at the club and one of then, Bertrand, is unlikely to be there come next season.
Furthermore, recalling that enthralling penalty shoot-out when, despite falling behind when Mata missed the first kick, we overcame the Bavarian outfit, we find that all five penalty takers - Mata, Luiz, Lampard, Cole and Luiz have left!
• Bosingwa (Gone)
• Luiz (Gone)
• Cole (Gone)
• Kalou (Gone)
• Mata (Gone)
• Lampard (Gone)
• Bertrand (Going!)
• Drogba (Gone)
However, despite all the changes, I defy you to not shed a few tears when you watch the dramatic final again. It still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand-up when Drogba equalises and Cech saves the penalty from Robben. As for the penalty shoot-out, it remains simply superb and is amongst the best moments of my life.
How about you?
