So, this evenings footie match…
I can’t decide if I should be hoping for a Man Utd win as they are, as am I, English or if I should be hoping for a Barca win as I cannot abide Ronaldo and Ferguson. I appreciate the football played by the team as a whole and really do respect some of the united players but those two? I could happily see them eradicated from the planet.Posted 11 years ago
It’s a tough call this one. In the interests of being able to shout and rant at the telly, I have to choose one team.
Which team are you lot (who are watching it) going for?
ps. my nickname is from school days not due to my allegiance to the team.
I’m a Man City season ticket holder but am also a non bitter blue.
Can’t abide Fergie or Ronaldo but have to respect their talents. I’m hoping for a Utd win.Posted 11 years ago

VAMANOS BARCA!!!!!Posted 11 years ago
I heard Ferguson claiming they will be the first team to win it back to back.
AARRGGHH!!! You haven’t won it yet and Liverppol and Forest have won it back to back already. It’s changed its name but it’s the same competition you (exceptionally good football manager) plank!Posted 11 years ago
I’d probably support Utd as they’re British (of sorts). But if they lost I’d care for all of a split second after the whistle. I’d rather either team win and it was an interesting match, (like Liverpool vs Milan 2005/6?) than Utd win it 1-0 scoring after 10 mins.
As long as Everton win on Saturday, I couldn’t give a monkeys tbh.Posted 11 years ago

Well I’m no football fan but even I know that isn’t true. For one thing there are more than just domestic champions involved and it isn’t a straight knock out tournament so in the event that they do win they would become the first team to retain the “Champions League”
Personally I’m just glad that after tonight there won’t be as much football on the TV for a few weeks.Posted 11 years ago
It’s the same tournament just a different name ergo, they won’t be the first team IF they win. I’m beggining to lean toward my namesakes to be honest.Posted 11 years ago
It’s the same tournament just a different name
Yes it’s the same tournament, except for the fact that the qualification criteria is different as is the entire structure of the competition. That’s a rather broad definition of the phrase “the same”.Posted 11 years ago
He still bugged me 🙂Posted 11 years ago
Nothing for or against Man Utd- feel nothing when I see them play/score so I’ll probably root for Barcelona as I did admire TH’s playing ability whilst at Arsenal…and it feels like your supporting an ‘exotic away-team’ (like in the World cup)- if that makes sense?!Posted 11 years ago
I am leaning towards wanting Manyuu to win, but if Barca are playing the better football I will start to root for them.
Just looking forward to what should be an amazing game of footie.Posted 11 years ago

It evolved, it is the same tournament, hence the record book regarding the tournament is still going. Which is why when we won it for the fifth time we got to keep the trophy!Posted 11 years ago
Come on utd. Barca have already won the league and the cup (sob) I wouldnt be able stand the tv wankfest if they won the euro too.Posted 11 years ago
I’m loving the way Fergie is saying in Interviews that he wants “To become a great Champions League team, like others…” He can’t quite bring himself to say Liverpool…
Dunno who to support, just hope it’s a decent gamePosted 11 years ago
It’s not the same competition as the old style European Cup, in the new format you’ve got to win through two group stages, then 3 straight knock out stages before you get to the final.
Arguably as there are more teams involved this will make it far harder to actually win the competition, let alon progress at any one stage.
There’s no taking it away from Liverpool in the 70’s / 80’s they were great, however it’s no someone elses turn.
I don’t recall Liverpool or indeed any other British Side having any more than one champions league trophy, they do have European Cups.
What I struggle to believe is that British People would rather a team from another country win the most prestigious club tournament in Eurpoe, even as a life long Man Utd fan, I wanted Liverpool to beat Milan, purely because they are an English side and that’s got to be beter than any European Team winning.Posted 11 years ago
It is still the European Cup, f’k sky sports and their need to brand everything the super-duper-totally-spectacular-roll-up-roll-up cup. It is the European Cup and it will remain the European Cup, and you are right that no-one can take away what was acheived in the 70’s/80’s etc, they can’t, because it is written in the record books, the very record books which are still on going and have never been closed!Posted 11 years ago
Who cares about British People? What about people who love world football and have a greater respect for Barcelona than they could ever have for Manchester United? I care more about the sport than the geographical location of those playing.Posted 11 years ago
If it was Man Utd without Ferguson and Ronaldo though steve_b77, I wouldn’t hesitate in backing them lot in Salford.
What time is kick off? I have to go to the Triffid Centre straight out of work at 6:00pm. That’s another world of pain. A Pauls Boutique hoody for an 11 year old – £65!!! Christ on a bike! It needs changing as she’s bought the wrong size. For that much money, I think they should come and collect it and deliver the correct one.Posted 11 years ago
CAMPEONES! CAMPEONES!Posted 11 years ago
OLÉ OLÉ OLÉ
I’d like a united win but not all that bothered either way. Just want to see lots of goals and a good matchPosted 11 years ago
They say try everything once, so the only time in my life when I wanted Man Utd to win was their victory over Bayern Munich.
So having got that experience out of the way, I’m going to support Barcelona!
Whatever the result I do hope its a great entertaining final!Posted 11 years ago
Sorry to go off the subjest abit, in the hairdressers last week I saw this dreadful picture of Ronaldo’s Mum wearing some gear from his new fashion designer range. She’s about 56 and a large lady, it truely wasn’t a good advertisment. Can anyone find the picture, she’s wearing some sort of top and shorts combination, which is more suited to a 15 year old girl?Posted 11 years ago
Living in Madrid makes it fairly easy – UNITED! UNITED!Posted 11 years ago
I sort of second Steve B77, you Brits are weird. I wish MU all the best but if it was L’pool or Arsenal I’d be supporting them for those 90+ minutes.Posted 11 years ago
Bunnyhop; were it this one:
I see your point; if my mum went out dressed like that, I’d disown her!Posted 11 years ago
Jesuz. You can see where Cristiano got his good looks and sculpted bod fromPosted 11 years ago
Actually, I might get a dirty doner kebab in..Posted 11 years ago
as a sad Leeds fan…
c’mon Barca!Posted 11 years ago
Yes Fred, that’s the pic. Stunning 😕Posted 11 years ago
