I am in general a passionate hater of the blues but tonight damn it all to hell I was a blue! One of the most incredible rearguard defensive displays of all time held Barcelona at the Nou Camp to a 2-2 all draw with Messi of all people missing a penalty to put 10 man Chelsea 3-1 down and almost certainly out. Staggering odds were laid for Chelsea to go equalize or Barca not to win and all of them went tits up when a break away lump up field left Torres with the keeper to beat which he duly rounded and rolled the ball into an empty net to crush the Catalans in the dying seconds. A totally incredible and unbelievable end to an astonishing match. I think I will go back to wanting Chelsea's opponents to win the final though!
