"If Big Pete's Happy, I'm Happy!" that was the statement from John Terry when he talks of Chelsea's Champions League preparations for the final in Munich on 19.05.12. No one will ever forget his role in our history!

On SkySport's tribute programme to Chelsea's Champions League victory in 2012, John Terry was talking about our preparation for the game. Four years previously as we prepared to take on Manchester United in Moscow, Terry revealed that the theme in Moscow was red. From the banners to the pendants - the theme was Red and Petr Cech saw it as a sign - We all know what happened!

Step forward four years to Munich 2012 and the theme was Blue. Everything was blue from the banners to the pendants - it was all Blue and as John Terry said, Cech was happy and again saw it as a sign. So much so, he believed 100% that no matter what, Chelsea would win the game.

There has been plenty of debate about Petr Cech since his horrific head injury as whether or not he is as good as when he first came. Look at his point blank reflex save against Romelu Lukaku last season to see he still has it but overall, look at that Final in Munich and you will see the best of Petr Cech.

Now there is divided opinion on Petr Cech's move across London from Chelsea to Arsenal, but I have to say that it's a move I have no issues with. Plenty will disagree but we have to be honest here and ask ourselves the question if he will replace Thibaut Courtois as our number one next season? If the answer is "No" then I don't see a reason to moan.

The fact that Roman Abramovich has given Cech special dispensation to move to Arsenal speaks volumes of the man and of the service he has given us through the most successful period in our history!

Petr Cech joined our club when Carlo Cudicini had settled into life at Chelsea and had made some impressive performances. The Italian was firmly established as our number one but that all changed when big Pete walked through the door.

Just look at him now and all that he has achieved at Stamford Bridge and it's amazing. Many people talk of our successful era and you have to look at Petr Cech alongside John Terry, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba as HUGE influences on just how successful we have been.

I stated on Twitter last night that Cech had been class at our club from the moment he walked in the door to the moment he left us yesterday and his message to the Chelsea fans demonstrates exactly that:

What a lovely message to all of us and a plea to ask you all to understand that football comes first and foremost with sitting on the bench for the most part this past season highlighting just how much he loves to play. 

In some years down the line after the likes of the four players I mentioned above hang up their boots, they should be honoured by this club for the immense service they have given us, their loyalty and for literally giving everything for the shirt and our club. 

We have reached levels that none of us dreamed of fifteen to twenty years ago and Petr Cech like the others will go down in history as the greatest Goalkeeper to play for Chelsea. 

I know it's hard to see him at Arsenal but come on, after everything he has given us, he deserves a chance to play regular football again at the top level!

All the best big Pete! We will miss you! 

(Ignore the fact this is an Arsenal Video - it's the best tribute out there at the moment!)
