    There was no controversy in that match, other than the bitterness of Juve fans for losing yet another final.

    Also disagree Chelsea had more ref. errors going their way in the tie. It was about even if you judge them carefully, but it's human nature to complain more about said mistakes when you lose, than when you win. The British media spun that in their favor because in the decisive game in England the ref did favor us more. They conveniently forgot Barcelona had 4 huge ref error (no offside for Eto'o 1 vs 1 with Cech, red card for Bosingwa and penalty for us for a clear shirt pull on Henry in clear goalscoring situation, and a clear 2nd yellow for Ballack not given) against them on Camp Nou, and that Chelsea had their own Ovrebo in that game.

    There's a difference between what really happened, and the biased perception of the losing sides.
    Don't forget the Ney goal that was disallowed too. Open to interpretation I guess but still final scoreline should have been 4-1 Barca.

    There was no team on Earth close to Barca in 2015.

    Yea, best bet is 7. 8 would be pushing it. I agree with those saying 2012 is far from a sure thing playing vs a top Bayern on their stadium, although we played our best football in Rome and Wembley finals. 2010 and 2019 we win almost for sure if we don't fuck it up in the semis, ties only we can fuck up to be honest (huge bad luck and ref errors vs Inter and insane bottling job vs Liverpool on Anfield).

    I agree that Bayern in 2012 were really good and I'm not too sure we would beat them.


    2010 is the big one for me. We were winning in San Siro and then got really complacent, losing that first leg 3-1. Second leg was a weird match where Inter absolutely parked the bus and that seemed to be Pep's kryptonite. Very questionable decision to rule off that Bojan goal too.


    And 2019, I mean I don't need to say anything about that. So overall two CL's for me where I think we could've won.

    2010 and 2019 are my picks.
    2010 we were the best team in the world by quite a margin.
    2019.. It was on a plate for us and we messed up. Liverpool were a better team though.

    I'd put every year we've had Messi and a subpar coach and squad, you do the math...

    2010 and 2019 easily. Though winning in dominant fashion in 2011 took the sting out of the 2010 loss.
