Chelsea has the 'right stuff' to win in Munich

My take on Chelsea vs Bayern Munich in Munich, 19 May 2012.

Having defeated Napoli and Barcelona (arguably the best team in the world), Chelsea would be a most deserving winner in Munich.

Unfortunately, Chelsea will miss 4 key players for the final:
Ivanovic's 3rd card (Why did he not know that he risked the final by kicking the turf where Messi was to miss a penalty kick?) 
* Meireles's 3rd card: Hardly warranted to exclude him from final
Ramires's 3rd card
Bottom line: Where else in the world is a championship game marred by the absence of great players? Is this fair to the clubs, to fans?No, especially as some yellow cards are highly iffy. 
And the rules are different in the Champions League versus the World Cup. FIFA is a joke.
Overview: Champions League final tarnished by suspensions
Back to the main theme
Chelsea deserves to win the final and should. 
The spectacle of Ribery and Robben fighting over who would take a penalty kick reveal Bayern's lack of team spirit. 
Same with Robben slugging teammate Muller last year.  
For Bayern stars "it's all about me." They deserve to lose before hometown fans.
How Bayern feels:
All I can say is, the author of this analysis (Will you root for Chelsea or Bayern) is a cretin and I believe in fairy tales.
Despite the absences, Petr Cech, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba, Michael Essien, Frank Lampard, David Luiz, Juan Mata, Fernando Torres have the talent to win in Munich.
Go Chelsea!
