Arjen Robben: Hoping to make it third time lucky at the weekend

Bayern, who lost to Inter in the 2010 final and then suffered a painful penalties loss to Chelsea in their own stadium last year, will face German rivals Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Saturday.

And Robben said: "Most of us were in the side which lost in 2010 and 2012, and that explains why so many of us are hungry for this title."

Bayern were runaway winners of the Bundesliga this season, finishing 25 points clear of second-placed Dortmund, and Robben says they need to stick with a winning formula this weekend.

"That's very important," said the Dutchman. "When we are on the field this week, we must not start doing things differently.

"Nor should we go to bed earlier, eat differently. We just have to do precisely the same things we've been doing all season, because we were very successful.

"We're experienced and we know what's coming, so we will prepare in a very normal way, as we have always done."

This is the 11th straight season in which Robben has competed in the Champions League and he is convinced he is about to win the trophy for the first time.

"I have a good feeling, we are going to do it," he said.

"But we must not start thinking that we are not allowed to lose. If we do that, then we may as well give up already."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
