    Ferdinand and Vidic will contain Henry. And Puyol, well at least Barca will have one centre back!

    You mustn't have been watching much football recently if you think it'll be that easy! I wonder how many trophies Man U will have to win this year before people admit that they are the best team in the world? I guess reigning English, European and World champions doesn't mean anything :rolleyes:

    I guess you haven't been watching a whole lot of Barca matches lately as well.

    I've seen enough.. the last one I recall was game they scraped through with an away goal in the 94 minute.. How did United do in that round again?

    Haha, the best of luck to you!

    By all rights I think it should have been Chelsea against the Red Devils. Barca pulled out the away goal difference in 94th minute, and I think there was a legitimate hand ball not called. But they were good enough to play Chelsea to the draw, and those are the breaks.

    As to ManU they have had a great season, the FA Cup final was missed on the pk's to Everton, Premier League Champion again and they were the front runner from before Christmas, and now Champions League they managed the 1-0 shutout of Porto away that they needed, and they dismantled the Gunners 4 - 1 on aggregate to get their ticket to Rome.

    Whether they win the big game in Rome or not, I think they have been the best side in the sport this year. Ronaldo Rooney Berbatov Teves Giggs Evra Nani Macheda Vidic Ferdinand Van der Sar, They have a phenomenal team. Barca has some good players too like Henry Messi Iniesta Eto'o, Alvarez, but ManU looks top to bottom formidable, if all their top players are fit on the pitch, and they have more on the bench if the occasion warrants. They would be my pick to have the edge in Rome.

    Liverpool was pretty sweet at times this year. I think they managed to play beyond their talent in the league. Arsenal too. ManU and Chelsea seem to be a hare better. There is talk that the Gunners are going to to open up the purse a bit to give Arsene Wenger more to work with next year though.

    Looks like Teves will be gone for ManU after Rome, but next year will be a pretty challenging year for a lot of sides with 2010 a World Cup year and all the shuttling between country clubs and league clubs.

    I'll definitely be watching the Roma match. Last year's final was hard to beat though for drama. I'd guess a 2-1 or 3-2 final score with Manu U topping the final table. Ferguson always seems to have them ready in the big matches.

    I agree that there were a couple of penalty shouts that probably should have been given, but then again there was a clear foul in the box on Henry in the first game which wasn't awarded: such is football. Chelsea's biggest mistake were that they were happy to hang onto a 1-0 lead, something they do all too often. You just can't afford to do that at home in Europe.

    In retrospect, Fergie may be kicking himself for not playing his first team, but then again we won the Premier league and are in the final of the champions league, so he may have made the right decision.

    we are missing the most important thing in big matches, which experience, were Sir have.
    but no doubt barcalona is going to amaze all football watchers.

    That's what makes doing a triple like that so daunting - the scheduling when all the brackets end at the end of the season. Maybe if he had the Premier League already in hand ... but with Liverpool hanging on their shoulder and dogging them all the way, and Chelsea not far away they couldn't have afforded to ease off the gas anywhere. They had chances even as it was to win the game outright before extra time, but when it went to kicks I figured without Van der Sar it was not as promising as last year's PKs in the Champion's League Final. Ah well, ... wait til next year.

    They are certainly capable of winning. There is no question they have the talent to. Even against the Red Devils. If they can put together some inspired attacks and play the whole 90 with passion and determination like they did with Chelsea, I think they can do it.

    But that presupposes that ManU doesn't play inspired as well. And Manu U can always bring in subs late and fresh that are as good as most other teams starters.

    In my point of view, It will be Barca's game if and only if Man Utd wont score in the opening minutes
     
  20. May 20, 2009 #19
    Port Vale is going to win obviously.

    Early or late, ManU will be able to score.

    Of course if they don't score early, conditional probabilities alone would suggest it will be a closer game.
