On 19th May, 2012, Chelsea Football Club wrote the most glorious chapter so far in their grand history. Into the lion’s den headed Roberto Di Matteo’s men, bound for the Allianz Arena to take on German powerhouses Bayern Munich in their own backyard. "Champions of Europe 2012", the official two-disc DVD released by the club, chronicles the lead up to that match and then the breathtakingly thrilling evening in the sweet summer Munich air.
Just as Manchester United fans file away a DVD celebrating the remarkable 1999 Champions League win and Liverpool fans their own unlikely triumph in 2005, now Chelsea fans can do the same, with this very well put together and good looking record of history being made.
With a running time of 207 minutes, Chelsea fans will be transfixed to the action, which travels through the Group Stage to the Round of 16 against Serie A side Napoli, on to the quarter-final clash against Benfica and then the dethroning of kings, with Barcelona beaten in the semi-final. And then it is on to Germany and to the 2012 Champions League final – a game not to be missed.
The DVD contains every goal scored in the famous campaign along with extras that are worth much more than the belated addendum the name implies. Blue stars Frank Lampard, Petr Cech and Gary Cahill all line up for exclusive interviews, while there is a tribute to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and coverage of the victory parade with the trophy itself. But not just that, there are also extended highlights of the Barcelona clash, a tie in many ways every bit as amazing as the final itself.
"Champions of Europe 2012" is a DVD that no Chelsea fan should be without. It is the companion to a season which will only be even more special as the years go by.
