Ole! Barcelona was just magnificent!
HAIL BARCELONA FC, worthy football champions of Europe. It was worth losing sleep to catch the final where Man Utd was trying to defend its title after beating Chelsea in Moscow last year. After Eto scored the first goal, and seing how Puyol and mates played their hearts out, I couldn't see Ronaldo and his team getting back into the game. Messi showed no mercy to a United team that played with no real invention and flair. While Barcelona played smooth football, United was disjointed and didn't seem to be really hungry enough to fight for every ball. Barcelona showed class while United laboured. I was the last to leave the flat screen stadium. Despite being an Man U fan, I wasn't unhappy at Barcelona's win. They truly deserved the Cup. I now wait for Man U's game in the National Stadium in Bkt Jalil come July 18.
