2012 Champions League Final Player Ratings!

19th May 2012 will go down in history as the greatest day for Chelsea Football Club.

Chelsea didn’t play at their best but an unbelievable effort, a little bit of luck, and some outstanding performances mean we can FINALLY say the UEFA Champions League 2012 is coming to Stamford Bridge!

Ratings:

CHELSEA

Cech = 9 – Perhaps could have done better with Muller’s goal but more than made up for it with the Robben penalty save and his heroics in the shoot-out.

Bosingwa = 6 – Often caught out of position and would have been in trouble in Ribery had actually turned up.

Cahill = 8 – Superb. Considering the injury he restricted Gomez to one very good opportunity.

Luiz = 7 – Another valient effort considering the injury, was caught out by Muller once or twice.

Cole = 7 – Insisted on showing Robben inside and would have been in trouble if Robben had brought his shooting boots. At fault for Muller’s goal. Great penalty.

Mikel = 8 – My man of the match. Looked calm and composed on the ball and rarely gave it away.

Lampard = 8 – True captains performance. Defended brilliantly, had the energy of a 20 year old. Fantastic penalty.

Mata = 6 – A few good touches but the defensive style doesn’t really suit him.

Kalou = 6 – A few good early touches and runs. Got back into defensive positions but rarely defended well.

Drogba = 8 – Quiet and disappointing for 85mins but does what he does best. Scored the equaliser and deciding penalty. A true Chelsea legend.

Bertrand = 7 – Eyebrows raised but performed like an experience professional.

Subs:

Malouda = 6 – Didn’t really see alot of him when he came on.

Torres = 7 – His fresh legs, pace and meaningful runs caused Bayern problems. Won the corner which lead to the equaliser.

BAYERN

Neuer = 6 – Should have done better with Drogba’s header. Disappointing in penalty shoot-out.

Lahm = 6 – Didn’t have to do much defending but offered very little going forward.

Boateng = 6 – Rarely threatened but kept Drogba quiet from open play.

Tymoshchuk = 6 – Didn’t look out of place at centre back.

Contento = 6 – Very much the same as Lahm.

Schweinsteiger = 6 – Very quiet. Missed crucial penalty.

Kroos = 7 – Effected the game with good passing from a deeper role.

Muller = 7 – Took goal well. Otherwise pretty quiet and didn’t cause Chelsea to many problems.

Robben = 7 – Missed penalty. Tried to do too much.

Ribery = 6 – Did he get off the coach? He was against a poor RB in Bosingwa and rarely beat him.

Gomez = 6 – His goal scoring record suggests he is world class but perhaps he showed last night why Europe’s top clubs are after him.

Subs:

Van Buyten = 5 – Didn’t sure the team up. The manager made the change too early after the goal.

Olic = 5 – Last game for Bayern, but not one to remember. Decided to cross when a shot would have been better. Missed penalty.
