Me and my son Liam will be at wembley tomorrow for United V Barcelona

Great atmosphere, wonderful stadium, all fans getting on well together, one of my favourite days ever...............and then the game started Rolling Eyes

Seriously, it was an honour to be there, even though we did get well and truly battered.

Along with Brazil V Italy at the Azteca Stadium in 1970 (I wasn't there but we had a new colour telly) and elbow with The Halle Orchestra at the Bridgewater Hall in 2009, this was one of the most beautiful performances I've ever seen.

Very gracious of you Sparky - despite my obvious allegiances on the night, the first half especially, I was captivated, the game went so fast, and to be fair, in the second half, no team would have lived with Barcelona, United just couldn't get a foothold in the game.

This Barca team could rule for the next 4 - 5 years, that's the frightening thing - it's more than just throwing money at their team, it's the whole culture, methods of training - everything.

I'm trying to think of a match where I've just sat back and just 'enjoyed', if that's the right word, a good tonking - maybe Arsenal at Maine Road, where we lost by 4 or 5, when Henry, Bergkamp and co absolutely took the piss.....they got applauded off by the City fans.

I was impressed by Wembley at the semi and final, a good view and excellent atmosphere.

I absolutely loved watching the final on saturday, i'm a huge fan of barca (especially their midfield [and Messi]), and just to see them turn on the passing in the second half was superb!! I think van der saar would've saved messi's goal if he was a few years younger, and the 3rd one wouldn't have happened if not for nani's awful touch which laid off villa. Even if those goals hadn't gone in, i still reckon barcelona would've run away with it, but i would've preferred it to be done through the brilliance which the team clearly possesses rather than an ageing goalkeeper and a bad first touch from a player who was still to get a feel for the ball.
Would anyone be able to tell me whether or not that was nani's first tich since coming on?

In regards to them ruling the game for the next few years, i don't think they need to spend a lot if at all to do so, but what worries me is the potential city has, what with their ridiculously wealthy owner to just buy anyone they want now that they've qualified for the champions league.
