So stoked for the game today.

Also a little nervous. (Hey, it is Barca after all.)

I'm hoping it's good football and not a repeat of 2009.

I'm pulling for a goal by Chicharito and some stellar setups by never-aging Ryan Giggs.

I'll also accept a Van de Sar clean sheet for his last United game.

Oh...and if it's not too much, another long range boomer from Scholes would be nice.

would have been hard to believe today.

Wasn't hard to believe for the first 8-10 minutes (kind of like 2009), but after that it just became a clinic by Barca.

I tell you it was a hard game to watch, and Rooney provided a little glimmer of hope.

I'm a little disappointed that Nani didn't factor in more. Valencia should have been brought of sooner. And I think Berbatov would have been a better sub option than Owen.

But then again, I'm not Sir Alex.

But at the end of the day if we had to lose, that's the team to lose to because I doubt any team in the world would have touched them today.

pretty accurate assessment I'd say. for us neutrals it was a beautiful game with which to finish off the football season.

Ha! Only because the team you hate didn't collect another trophy.

I saw a photo of Stevie G floating around the web where he was supposedly celebrating the fact that Liverpool has won it 5 times to United's 3.

But then there was the United comeback of "What ship has never docked in Merseyside under Stevie G? The Premiership."

Should be a good season next year. I imagine your boys might push a little stronger earlier on now that they have a whole year without Torres.
