Product Description

In May 2012, Chelsea FC lifted the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy after a truly unforgettable campaign. Chelsea fans will always remember their route to victory - the comeback against Napoli, the last gasp win against Benfica, defeating the mighty Barcelona at Stamford Bridge, heroics in the Nou Camp and the famous night in Munich where they secured the greatest prize in European club football. This is the story of how the Blues made history. From the group stages right through to Didier Drogba's winning spot-kick, this DVD features highlights of every game and every goal in a fitting tribute to the heroes in Blue. Extras include exclusive interviews with Chelsea's stars as well as a wonderful tribute to Chelsea legend Didier Drogba and highlights of the victory parade through the streets of London. To complete this wonderful production, there is also a bonus second disc featuring extended highlights of Chelsea's historic second leg semi-final match against the mighty Barcelona to ensure fans can relive one of the greatest nights in the history of Chelsea FC.

Product Description

A comprehensive review of Chelseas successful Champions League campaign of 2012. Every game and every goal is relived in full, as the team progresses through the group stages to the nail-biting finale in Munich. In addition to interviews with the players, and a tribute to blues hero Didier Drogba, theres a chance to savour again all the highlights from the second-leg semi-final against Barcelona.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rushed and distinctly average. 14 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
You'd have thought that after the mechanical season review Chelsea FC - Double Champions! Season Review 2011/12 [DVD] that was produced to commemorate what turned out to be Chelsea's greatest-ever season, that the club might have gotten this one right.

Wrong.

In fact it is equally as rushed, just as barebones in the content, and distinctly average. The coverage is as limited as the season review in places - there are no pre-match interviews with either Andre Villas-Boas or Roberto di Matteo, nor with any of the players for that matter. The highlights for the group phase matches has been lifted and copied from the season review, with a new bit of narration plastered over the top. It doesn't exactly strike you as the most incredible of compilations.

To be fair - the extras are great. There is a lovely tribute to the Munich hero Didier Drogba, some great interviews with Petr Cech, Drogba, Gary Cahill, John Terry, Frank Lampard and di Matteo AND some footage of the victory parade around Stamford Bridge, also. To the club's credit, the footage does improve as we come to the knock-out rounds. They are not what you would consider to be 'extended highlights', but rather than seeing just the goals, we get a little bit more of the action; a little bit more of the drama. A good 10-12 minutes is dedicated to the Munich showpiece itself against Bayern, and the penalty shoot-out is featured in full.

Yet there a couple of things that still let this disc down - the commentary, and the picture quality. Firstly, its standard-definition. There's nothing wrong with it, but if you're looking for crystal-clear coverage, you might as well download Sky's live showing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Much to Add 14 Aug 2012
By Vaughan TOP 1000 REVIEWER
I echo the comments of Alexander Hinsley, who is spot on for the most part.

However, this set does answer some of my criticisms of the Season Review disc (see my comments there), so I'm giving it a four. I had bemoaned the lack of a proper Drogba goodbye - but it's here. And while the commentary from Chelsea TV might disappoint some, I actually liked it here because I have the game itself recorded in hi-def anyway with the TV commentary. It was nice to hear something different - not to mention the fact that we get some different shots than were broadcast on the night.

The interviews here are great, and the parade footage is hilarious as player after player humiliates themselves with some "singing" (a highlight is Torres brutalizing Queen).

Oh, the way the highlights work - the further we get in the competition, the longer the highlights, which worked well for me.

So all in all - IF YOU COMBINE THIS WITH THE SEASON REVIEW - it's good. As a standalone, it's a bit wanting. Yes, they should have made ONE excellent set from all this. But there you have it. Buy both as I did.

ps: Perhaps next season the Chelsea TV commentary folk can give us a little less of the "Get in!" and "He buried it!" after almost every goal......

3.0 out of 5 stars Chelsea are past caring about DVD releases etc.. 28 Aug 2012
I'm not really sure why this DVD exists because you really don't need to own it if you have the season review DVD. The season reviews used to be a lot more in depth and they sometimes featured bonus matches, well that's in the past. Now the review DVDs are rushed and they only feature goals, not red card incidents, not exciting moments, nothing. I was expecting the full European Final match but there was about 15 minutes of it, perhaps less. I wish the chelsea tv commentators were kept off of this release aswell, they hardly reacted to Drogba's penalty which was strange. The good things about this DVD include the victory parade and the hour long plus highlights of the Barcelona 2nd leg. However Chelsea have become lazy with these DVD releases, it doesn't look like the FA Cup final will see a release and I doubt that the Champions league final will see a proper release either. I have a big chelsea DVD collection so I'll keep going with it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only ok 11 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
Purchased for the lad as a keepsake, didn't rate it too much though and won't be keeping it. Cheaply produced and put together, seemed just like what it was, a quickly thought of and manufatured money spinner. Will look for alternative productions to keep for posterity.

2.0 out of 5 stars dont expect too much 29 Mar 2013

really biased commentary, short game reviews and little to reflect the true nature of games and the tactics chelsea utilized to win the trophy. There is a nice tribute for didier drogba but in general the dvd isnt great and very rushed.
