I don't think the match will be such a stinker as that FA cup final. Firstly, United were shagged last season, and were unable to break Chelsea's negative tactics. This game, they should be fresh as daisies.
Secondly, people will probably be reading too much into the fact that Chelski beat us recently. I don't think that counts at all, considering Chelski had to go for it, whereas United didn't. I feel Fergie took a slight gamble with both team selection and mentality in that game. This won't happen in the final.
Thirdly, I'd be very surprised if Terry is fit.
The only thing in Chelski's favour, IMHO, is that it is in Russia, and Abramovich will have ample opportunity to swing things his way, if he is that way inclined.
If Ferdinand improves the physical aspect of his game against Drogba, then I don't see United having too many problems in winning.
