Frank Malley thinks Bayern Munich will face a revitalised Chelsea side in the Champions League final after the Blues' FA Cup success.
Blue is the colour, confidence and belief is the game.
And Chelsea will take both into the Champions League final in two weeks' time after depositing the FA Cup in the Stamford Bridge trophy cabinet.
We wanted an FA Cup final to stir the blood. One to excite the packed stands under the magnificent Wembley arch.
Chelsea's 2-1 victory against Liverpool took a long time to do that. For too long, it was too one-sided. Too clinical. Too desperately disappointing if you were a Liverpool supporter hoping a troubled season was to have a final hurrah.
It was just too predictable as a Chelsea side with a pleasing balance took a stranglehold on English football's showpiece occasion and proved that when it comes to one-off power no-one does it better.
How ironic then that it was saved as a spectacle by Andy Carroll, the £35million misfit striker who came off the bench in the second-half to breathe life and inspiration into a Red revival which gave us an FA Cup final to savour.
At 2-0 down he produced a thunderous left-foot shot into the roof of the Chelsea net, a real centre forward's blockbuster, to give Liverpool a lifeline.
After 81 minutes he rose to head goalwards, only for Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech to parry the ball on to the crossbar and down on to the line for Frank Lampard to scramble clear.
Liverpool players claimed a goal, the officials conferred, television replays suggested the tightest of decisions. In the end doubt prevailed and the 'goal' was not given.
Yet, make no mistake, despite Liverpool's heroic fightback and the dramatic impact of Carroll, when John Terry walked up to collect the cup justice was done.
Because of the Brazilian brilliance of midfielder Ramires, aided and abetted by a dreadful error in positioning from Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina, to give Chelsea the lead after 11 minutes.
Because of Didier Drogba, the man credited with ending a civil war in his Ivory Coast homeland, who delivered Chelsea's second, a left-foot strike of searing precision to make history as the first man to score in four FA Cup finals.
But when history comes to review the 2012 FA Cup final surely it will also record that Chelsea won because of the extraordinary part played by a bald-headed Italian in a sharp suit by the name of Roberto Di Matteo.
Di Matteo stood in his technical area throughout as the drama unfolded, arms folded, a 1000-yard gaze taking in the history of what was happening before him.
Calm. Composed. Dignified. A caretaker manager who has taken care of everything asked of him since Andre Villas-Boas was sent packing by Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich at the beginning of March.
Since then Chelsea have won 12, drawn four and lost just two out of 18 matches.
Those are impressive statistics. The real story, however, lies in how he has rejuvenated an alienated and warring squad, whose senior players were distinctly off-message, into a force once more in touch with their winning mentality.
On the way to Wembley, of course, they have also overcome the might of Barcelona to reach the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in Munich in two weeks time.
If the Germans watched this FA Cup final and felt just a little apprehensive, then you could not blame them.
Under Matteo, Chelsea possess that vital sporting characteristic of being able to find a way to win whatever the circumstances, whatever the opposition.
True, the Liverpool fightback rocked Chelsea briefly. There are few more stirring sights in football than Liverpool scarves waving and the sound of Scouse fans imploring their team to glory.
But 25 minutes of Liverpool passion with Carroll driving at the Chelsea defence like a human JCB was not enough to wrest the trophy from a side for whom Ramires, John Obi Mikel and Lampard were superb.
Nor should it have been. Liverpool's problem all season has been consistency. They have promised in fleeting bursts but there is a good reason they are 34 points off the pace in the Premier League.
They lack quality in depth. They are short on creativity. For all the cash splashed on their huge squad they are a work in progress for manager Kenny Dalglish, a project which requires more investment from their American owners this summer
For Chelsea, it is next stop Munich and another tilt at history. One way or another, they have a knack of getting the job done.
For that, Abramovich can thank the quite extraordinary impact of Di Matteo.
