wrong.

Essien has high technique and scores great goals his whole career. He doesn't score alot but when he does they are always something special. And no even the great Zidane doesnt score goals like that all the time, not to mention he had no one around him, Michael Essien had a guy right in his face.

You just don't get Michael Essien's game, you probably are one of those idiots who thinks he's all athleticism average skill, wrong he combines world class skill with world class athleticism.

If only he didn't make it with his bad foot...then the goal might have had a bit of credibillity.
Absolutely noone in the bar could believe how he pulled that off, and I'm talking Chelsea and Barca fans. (except for the occasional drunk hardcore homer... )

Essien is the best all-around player in the world. Excellent fullback defensively, quality central midfielder, and can even score big goals when Chelsea needs it.

Unlike well-hyped players like Ronaldo/Messi/Kaka he plays on both ends of the field. If healthy he can pretty much start on any squad in the world.

today's game is dedicated to Matt Busby. I think Barcelona is probably more representative of me socio-politically, but I like the EPL and am rooting for Scum United.

I can't stand Man U. Even though Barcelona beat Bayern, I will be rooting for them today. Going for United would be like rooting for the Lakers. I can't bring myself to do it. More than anything, I just want to see a free flowing match, with some goals scored. So excited. Can't wait for the start.

Eto'o scoring should lead to a more open game

Anyone who doesn't think Essien is one of the best/most skilled players in the world today just doesn't know their soccer. Probably the most complete player in the game. No weakness whatsoever.
