Gündogan is everywhere on the field. Has a great engine, but can he keep up this pace for 90 minutes?
Dortmund has already had more corner kicks (2) than Chelsea had vs Bayern in last year's final (1). Was 20-1 in CKs last year.
Only thing better than this fake pre-game horse at CL final were the fake pre-game white elephants at the WC2010 final.
Agree that sexual orientation in sports ultimately shouldn't be news. But Robbie Rogers being 1st openly gay MLS player sure is.
I've got Bayern 3, Dortmund 1. But a Dortmund win would be a fun story to write.
Gus Johnson and Warren Barton with the call of the Champions League final. Preview show live now on big FOX.
Tremendous atmosphere at Wembley before kickoff--the Yellow Wall has moved from Dortmund to London. Good stuff from Bayern fans too. LOUD.
Dortmund: Wiedenfeller; Piszczek, Subotic, Hummels, Schmelzer; Bender, Gündogan; Blaszczykowski, Reus, Grosskreutz; Lewandowski.
Bayern: Neuer; Lahm, Dante, Boateng, Alaba; Martínez, Schweinsteiger; Robben, Müller, Ribéry; Mandzukic.
Great weather here in London for the Champions League final after a dreary week. Couldn't ask for more.
Lots of Euro indignation over CL final in NYC idea. Think most Americans would prefer a Super Bowl in London over the one in, say, Detroit.
Think chances of a Super Bowl in London are greater than Champions League final in NYC. US sports less hesitant to export real games.
Know it wouldn't go over well with everyone in Europe, but UEFA should consider staging Champions League final in New York at some point.
Came to London for Champions League final & spent all week talking to people here about New York City FC & Robbie Rogers. Good week for MLS.
Curious to see how good Robbie Rogers will be after layoff. LA gave up a big contributor (Mike Magee) to acquire Rogers' rights from Chicago
Robbie Rogers joining LA Galaxy, will make history as 1st openly gay athlete in Major League Soccer. Big moment in US sports.
About to go on @SiriusXMFC Channel 94 from London from 5-7 pm ET to talk UCL final, other topics. Call 877-629-4614 with questions at 5 pm.
