European Silverware

My bruv wanted to let me know that CFC had no chance of winning the Champions League. What with Aberdeen FC's incredible win over the Huns on Wednesday, he has lost his marbles and went on to advise me that CFC had not won anything in Europe lately and certainly not since the Dons magnificent win in Gothenburg in 1983.

Wrong again loon.

Chelsea FC 1-0 VfB Stuttgart
UEFA Cup Winners' Cup Final • 13 May 1998 - Råsundastadion, Solna

Twenty-seven years after beating Real Madrid CF in Athens,
Chelsea FC won the trophy for the second time, beating VfB Stuttgart by a solitary goal in Stockholm.

I might also add, just like the Dons, we went on to win the SuperCup as well.

Note the coincidences. CFC beat Real for their 1st ECWC trophy and they won their last (and the last such trophy) in Sweden!!!
