Man Utd's overall performance was a bit better than two years ago, despite ending up with a worse scoreline. However, the better team won. No play-acting, no help from the ref. CONGRATULATIONS BARCELONA!!!!
they donot need to cheat aganist Man Utd they did their part in the semi final aganist Real Madrid because they know the only team can win against barcelona is Real Madrid and they did and please guys do not tell me that Barcelona did not cheat aganist Real Madrid. FIFA is Corrupted and wait and see what will happen in June everything will Exposed wait and see.
Get over it...Dont act bias..Im a man u fan and i admit many choices that went our way to win the league for a 19th time was not all correct....Fact is fact and Barca was better than man u.
Consider this: Both Manchester United and Real Madrid have far more money than Barcelona. Which one is more likely to actually have bribed UEFA (which is the organization that actually arranges Champitns League, not FIFA)? Barca might've played dirty against Madrid, but they didn't really need to, and the red cards given in the last el classicos? None of them really that strange. Barca got a penalty against them and a red card themselves in the last matches, despite definitely playing less rough than Real Madrid.
Barcelona are richer than Man utd. They both have large debts, however Barcelona's are self inflicted, and Man Utd's are entirely because of retarded american owners rather than careless overspending. Barca's revenue is second only to Real madrid. Get your facts straight. The Spanish giants have more revenue than anyone because they can sell their television rights independently to the highest bidder whereas something like the premier league has always been a collective deal. Barcelona are the finished article and have peaked at the perfect time as most of the major european clubs are at their weakest for many, many years. Man Utd and arguably Real Madrid are closest to them, but Madrid are still in the process of rebuilding and Man Utd are a side crying out for a regeneration especially in the midfield. They have been for nearly 2 years- everyone knew this before last night's game. Barcelona are worthy winners and nothing should take away their right to be Kings of Europe. It is now up to the rest to raise up their standards and reconstruct. Ac Milan, Inter, Madrid, Man Utd, Chelsea, Bayern etc will all willingly take up the gauntlet with buys this summer. Roll on next season.
Assneal we still better than u and chelsea we stil better than u..We held da flag for england 2nite.....We have 3 champions league medals and we r now d best team in england. Man u for life (-_-)
hahahahhahahaaha - 3-1 is even better for u , lol hahaha, yall got smashed by the best team in the world once again like 2 years ago... I wished Some other team like Bayern Munich was playing ... because Man u are just Boring .... lol hahahaha - yall may be better then chelsea and i will give u that but look what just happened to yall thinking yall were going to go in there and win something which yall didnt and everyone disagree on me i dont care hahahahahahha - fun match to watch win man u defence were getting done... once nani got in , Messi crossed him and the ball went to Pedro cuz of the defene then the balll sent to villa and took his pleasure time to score in the upper corner lol hahahhahahahahahahha - ay blackboijoes, wanna know a fact ? - You got beat 2 TIMES IN THE CHAMPIONS LEAGUE BY THE SAME TEAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 3-1 hahahaha
Why people are blind, Barcelona went to final by cheating and play acting I don’t think the best team in the world will use these can of method to win 2nd time it happen against Chelsea and now Real Madrid I am not saying they did not deserve to win against Man Utd but they did not deserve to be in the final what they did not the semifinal not something simple to do people. Please people do not get angry from the truth. The truth always hurts believe it or not Barcelona is the not the best team in the world.
@DavidLuiz4 What are you on about? Chelsea got beat by Man Utd twice in the Champions League this year. You're making it sound like we lost to a crap team but the fact is 3 Champions League finals in 4 years is a great acheivement. There is no shame in losing to Barca, they beat us the same way they beat Arsenal and R.Madrid this year.
Isn' 5 better than 3? opps, I wonder who has that many Euro Cups.
it must be said the better team won.. we didnt play badly but no team can win without the ball and barca are the masters at keeping it.. congrats to them @wanteboyes madrid are not the only team that can beat barca..
but Sir Alex made many bad decisions for the game! Park, Valencia and Carrick shouldn't have been on the pitch! Park was totally being shut down, Carrick was dreaming and Valencia...looked like a girl during a period!
the reason they played bad was because they met a much better team. You mention Park, Valencia, Carrick (you could also mention Giggs and Hernandez), but Barca players were too good, and with a ballpossession with 80% United players was running around without getting the ball. I don`t think starting with Scholes, Anderson and/or Nani would be a better choice.
I disagree, I think we were worse than two years ago. The stats show we had more possession and more shots on target than last night. Plus Barcas team is better than two years ago and ours is worse. Missed Fletcher's drive but I still don't think he would've affected the outcome.
FC Barcelona.. always a pleasure to watch :)
Yes they're a very very skilled and great team. but pleasure to watch? no! very boring. congrats on their win though. they thoroughly outplayed man u.
...boring to watch??!!?? How do you want to see football? This must be the best team ever, and I did enjoy all this 90 minuts of this final. United started the match best (first 10), but after taht it was all Barcas match, and fantastic football.
Didn't say they weren't good. And yes boring. But that's just how Barca have always played. Works for them but I hate it cause I can never fully get into watching their games. Oh well. Til next season.
would you prefer to watch birmingham vs blackburn and see long balls every 30 secs?
There we have it. The better team won it. Barca, minus the first 10 minutes, were dominant and better the entire game. Let the Man Utd fans admit that they were outclassed, no excuses this time. Barca could've (and should've) scored a few more but a win is a win, so congrats to them on a wonderful season. Oh, and Valencia was disgraceful for all those tackles and fouls.
@freeduck...Fair enough barca where better...But man u r still da best team in england..!!!!!....Yes u have 5 champions league medals but we have 3 and we have over taken ur record. Hate it or love it Red devils r still da best in england and loserpool r still waiting to win the league.
You wanna know why Man Utd fans are hated? It's because of immature unsporting comments like that. Seriously grow up.
Ah, United fans. Forever obsessed with Liverpool in everything they do. It's almost as if Liverpool FC define who you are. Sad.
Yeah Valencia was disgraceful and yet Busquets's injury antics were perfectly acceptable were they? Valencia's strength can be his downfall at times, especially in Europe where players go down so easily.
The expected result nothing more nothing less, Barca were and are the better team. Congratulations to Barcelona.
Cant really complain, the way Barcelona can keep possession is just awe inspiring. Best team in the world by miles. I've said it before and I'll say it again, our midfield needs serious sorting out this summer.
and i actually thought giggs and carrick would keep the ball better, how wrong was i.
Honestly, Evra let me down big time, he was more concerned about playing as a central defender instead of left back e.g. First goal and 3rd goal, why the hell was Nani(RW)doing Evra's job at LB . Also as the game went on United allowed them way too much space to dribble in front of goal.
Fantastic Barcelona! Best footballteam ever! and Messi is GOD!...or been sent by GOD to enjoy all footballfans in the world. Thank you GOD, thank you Braca, thank you Messi, Xavi, Villla and so on....
even if we somehow managed to score 2 goals to make it 3-3 it would have been very harsh on barca. we were made to look a very average team once again in a champions league final. barca used the same tactic again by putting messi in midfield but we obviously never learned our lesson from last time. barca are the best club team ever, wasent even close.
its not even about learning our lesson.. you cant get near messi or barca in midfield its that simple..i think giggs looked overwhelmed in midfield today he should have come at half time
Barcelona out played United the whole game, out passed,out hustled @times United looked as of they didn't realize it was the final. Congrats to Barcelona, and from a City fan "Thank you" 1 out of 3 United fans. :D
0 out of 0 city fans..
Well considering our only shot was the FA Cup. That would put us @100%, not 33% like United CTID!!!
Sorry to United,but they were average today...Best team in the world won though ! Congrats Barca fans
Braca was the best team today. And United: Vidic and Rooney was good, but to many players performed below average: Evra, Park, Valencia, Giggs, Hernandez was bad today. then you can`t beat Barca:-( Congrats all Barca fans.
in general everyone played poor, even though rooney scored a goal he did nothing else. valencia was non existant and hernandez was offside every time he touched the ball. i dont know if barca made them play crap but i think we could have done so much better especially in midfield.
You can't blame United strikers Hernandez and Rooney played well made some good moves but there was no one who could pass the ball United midfield is poor Iniesta Xavi combination made them look like little kids United needs a playmaker like Sneijder if they want to win the CL next season they have huge amount of pace up front they just need someone to deliver the football to Hernandez or rooney
just heard this "MAN UTD fans. Switch to ITV + 1 as you are still only 1-0 down with everything to play for."
United outclassed again Barca are from another planet no one can beat them at their best
they will also win cl next year and then they have won it 5th times and the trophy will stay in the Museum in No Camp for ever.
Yes, the same as Liverpool.
i wanna hear what zootang gonna say about this result :D
He's gone into hiding lol
I'm gutted, the best team won. Not much more I can say really. Barca were beautiful. In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
dont feel bad zootang 1st half both teams are equal but MU seems lost their spirits at 2nd half... thank you barca u made won 100$ i'll spend that money to buy the witcher 2 and infamous 2 lol :D:D:D
Just like Sir Alex, and his boys very classy, well said! Good show
We still won the League with a "poor team" hahahahahaha!
oh hush lol , chelsea were doing even worse
Berbatov, the PL's top scorer, wasn't even on the bench. Wonder how he would've done.
looks like he's going in the summer.
a nice come back gift for abidal he played decent though
Ya.. great to see him lifting the trophy as captain :)
I shudder to think what would've happened if Barca was this good when we played them in the '06 final... they just make every team they play look poor.
I doubt there would have been much of a difference, Arsenal had a much stronger side than now too.
No doubt. We had a good start, then Barca turned the game after 10 minutes. They have been great this season, and deserved the victory. Next year I hope Man U gets some high quality midfielders. Thats our loss today!
And of Course: Congrats to all you Barca fans out there!
Utd were outplayed all night long. As for the premiership, i think in some ways they were fortunate to win it. There will be a buying frenzy for next season and i'm guessing the race for the title will be very close. Well played barca.
FC Barcelona was the better team :3 Glad to see Mascherano dedicating the CL win to Liverpool :D
yeah, good to se he's still got some love left for them n always will :)
united were competitive for the first 10 mins then it was all barca, entertaining to watch for a neutral but painful if you are a man u supporter
When will the dogs from barcelona start playing interesting football? I mean they are very good at possession, but it`s boring as hell.
go watch scripted destruction from COD. You obviously don't know what football is.
The above comment shud be reported to football police :)
Are you stupid? It`s football for the masses, and the common man is a fool.
that is rubbish.
Barcelona haters are just Losers! Just player hating! Best team won today, but hats off to sir Alex F. and his squad, very classy! Muorinho and his bums could learn a few few things from these two top class teams that played today! Barca possibly best team in history, weather you like their style or not. Pure soccer magic to my eyes! Enough said
You mean attack against Barcelona and loss better then defense and win are you Stupid Muorinho Knows how to play against Barcelona and he is the only manager that makes Barcelona team cry. (Copa del Rey final). Barcelona cheated in the semifinal.
