Champions League - Chelsea hailed at trophy parade

Sun, 20 May 16:22:00 2012

Tens of thousands of Chelsea fans lined the streets of West London to celebrate the club's historic Champions League and FA Cup double.

FOOTBALL Chelsea fans celebrate their Champions League victory at an open-top bus parade through West London on May 21 - 0

Hoards of jubilant supporters saluted their heroes during an open-top bus parade less than 24 hours after the Blues' dramatic Champions League penalty shoot-out triumph in Munich.

The rolling procession kicked off from Stamford Bridge, with manager Roberto Di Matteo, captain John Terry and the rest of the double-winning Chelsea team displaying their newly-won silverware.

The Blues were crowned European club champions for the first time in their history after a dramatic final in Germany on Saturday night. They overcame Bayern Munich in their home stadium after the match went to extra time.

Around 25,000 Chelsea fans packed behind one of the goals in the Allianz Arena, while many more crammed into bars in London and around the UK to follow the action live on TV.

Even Prime Minister David Cameron managed to catch the nail-biting shoot-out, watching the drama unfold alongside German chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders at the G8 summit at Camp David in the US.

Didier Drogba was Chelsea's hero, scoring the equalising goal in the dying minutes of normal time and netting the spot-kick to win the shoot-out 4-3.

The team's last victory parade saw around 70,000 excited fans flock to the streets to celebrate the club's 2010 Premier League and FA Cup double.

The bus celebration followed the same route, travelling along streets including Fulham Road and King's Road before ending in Parsons Green.

  11. el tony comment 179 the attitude and childlike­ hahaha's and all that pre scholl stuff from the­ likes of 4good...will never transcend from here to the­ football stadium..because the retardos like that havent­ ever been to the ground, are never likely to go and­ will talk absolute tripe about whichever team they­ think will win this year and so become a so called­ supporter. muppets. what used to be two fine english­ teams turned into a laughing stock by dirty oil money.­ the real chelsea fans and city fans dont like it, so­ you wont find them on here with all that girl stuff.­ and would never be saying how glad they are to have­ sold out to sheiks and the kgb. the ones with real­ brains and the ones that were on here before they won­ not after...have a brain and realise its all going to­ crumble around them. and is going to end very badly.
