New, comments

So. Here we are. The Champions League final. I don't have anything motivational to say - if you're not pumped up at this point I don't think anything I do will help. This isn't going to be easy. Here are the players who'll be trying to earn the club our first European Cup:

Chelsea starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Petr Cech; Ashley Cole, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Jose Bosingwa; Frank Lampard, John Obi Mikel; Ryan Bertrand, Juan Mata, Salomon Kalou; Didier Drogba.

Substitutes from: Ross Turnbull, Michael Essien, Paulo Ferreira, Oriol Romeu, Florent Malouda, Daniel Sturridge, Fernando Torres.

Bayern Munich starting lineup (4-2-3-1): Manuel Neuer; Diego Contento, Anatoliy Tymoshchuk, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Toni Kroos, Bastian Schweinsteiger; Franck Ribery, Thomas Mueller, Arjen Robben; Mario Gomez.

Substitutes from: Hans-Jorg Butt, Daniel van Buyten, Rafinha, Takashi Usami, Danijel Pranjic, Nils Petersen, Ivica Olic.

Deep breaths.
