The UEFA Super Cup: A poll

Chelsea's next match will be for a European title. Having seen off Wigan Athletic, Reading and then Newcastle United in the Premier League, the Blues will be heading to Monaco to contest the UEFA Super Cup against Atletico Madrid; pitting the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League against each other. This is a competition that we've won before, with Gus Poyet scoring an 82nd minute winner against Real Madrid to take home the 1998 edition.

Atletico and their fans clearly care a great deal about this competition -- according to AS, they're even creating motivational videos ahead of the match to inspire their players to beat Chelsea. Do we? Should we? It's difficult for me to see this as anything more than a fun sideshow (like the Community Shield or the Club World Cup), but I could well be in the minority. How seriously do the rest of you think we should be taking Friday's match? A poll!
