UEFA Champions League: 30 April 2014: Live Open Thread

Gonzalo Arroyo Moreno

A live open thread for tonight's UEFA Champions League semi-final between Atletico Madrid and Chelsea

It could have been us. But it isn't, so let's get behind Diego Simeone and Atletico Madrid, right? Given the history between FC Barcelona and Chelsea FC, you'll be hard-pressed to find a Cule with even a shred of sympathy, or support, for Jose Mourinho's side. Oh yeah, Jose Mourinho's back. The combination of the Blues and The Special One is probably one of the worst for a Blaugrana fan -- and worst of all, Chelsea are actually confident of booking their place in the final after a hard-fought 0-0 draw at the Vicente Calderon. So with Real Madrid in imperious form in La Liga, and Chelsea or again, Real Madrid set to benefit in the UEFA Champions League, it's quite conceivable that all Cules will temporarily trade in their Blaugrana jerseys for something of a more rojiblanco variety.

At least for a few weeks anyway, because an Atleti double sure looks more appealing that watching either Real or Mourinho celebrate. For all discussion of tonight's game stick around in this dedicated live thread. Enjoy!
