Hoping that Barcelona can defeat Manchester United for the sake of the beautiful game


I'm a lifelong Manchester United fan but I hope Barcelona beats them today at Wembley in the European Cup Final.

I believe that Barcelona, with Messi et al represent the beautiful game so much better than a United team that is adequate but a long way form greatness.

Like in the world cup final with Spain I want to see the team that plays the beautiful game best win.

There is no doubt whatever that is Barcelona.

In Messi they have the best player since Maradonna, possibly the best ever.

In the seven members of the Spanish World Cup winning side they have a depth of grace and brilliance that United simply cannot match.

Not that United are a bad team, but they will be hoping to scrape a winning goal with a defensive game plan that will contrast greatly with Barcelona's sweeping end to end style.

So go Barca, and let's hope its 2-0.
