Pat Nevin dropped in virtually to look back at some brilliant Chelsea Champions League moments on Off The Ball on Wednesday night.
The final in 2012 against Bayern Munich at the Allianz Arena in Munich was a bizarre one for Nevin, as he recalls what happened to him with an unlikely double booking that famous night.

At the time, Nevin was a pundit for BBC Scotland and also Chelsea TV - as he says himself, the two roles had never previously conflicted.
"However on that day, my Scottish team Hibernian were playing in the Scottish Cup final against Hearts," remembers Nevin.
"They hadn't won the Scottish cup for over 100 years, and this could be the day. I'm supposed to be the main pundit in studio.
"That night Chelsea are playing in the Champions League final, away, at Bayern Munich, against Bayern Munich.
"I'm going to Hibs. Hibs are my team, it's over 100 years since they've won the Scottish Cup. They are playing against Hearts, their big rivals.
"So I decide not to go to Munich."
Nevin remembers on the day in 2012 itself with both of 'his' teams in action, it didn't get off to a great start.
"The madness of it," says Nevin. "It got so surreal, of course, Hibernian got beat 5-1 by Hearts, horror show, nightmare."
"I'm the guy on the telly getting dog's abuse and rightly so."
Nevin says he put that part of the day aside, there was still plenty of time for him to enjoy the Chelsea game before his next media engagement, a Scottish Cup final highlights show later in the evening.
"Then I need to do the highlights (live show) that night, just after 10 o'clock."
"So I'm watching the Chelsea game against Bayern, but I've got plenty of time. It (Chelsea) should finish and I still have time (before the show).
"But it goes to extra time. Then it goes to penalty kicks. I'm in the studio and I have the earpiece in and I'm watching the Chelsea game.
"I'm hearing the guy counting down, 'we're 30 seconds to live on air' for this live big television show.
"Didier Drogba walks up to take the penalty to win the Champions League and I'm going,' I need to watch this, I need to watch this.'
"When it comes to ten seconds, the ball hits the back of the net and I'm jumping around like a lunatic in this studio.
"I'm going absolutely mad and I hear in my ear 'four, three, two and I stop, and it's Mr. Sensible."
"I couldn't let the Hibs fans see I was happy, I'm a Hibee as well.
"It was the most incredible thing."
