After starting the game slowly, the Barca midfield showed why they are the best in world. Their runs were great, their passing was five star. It was a performance for the ages by the red and blue and the trophy is well deserved.
For a United fan the last two years have been amazing. The trophy haul includes: two Community Shield, two Premier League Titles, a Carling Cup, Champions League and a Fifa World Club Cup. Seven trophies in 24 makes the pain go away a little quicker.
My United scarf is sitting on the couch knowing the season is over and ready to be put in the closet for summer. In August the scarf will again come out of the closet for the Community Shield and today in Rome will be a thing of the past.

Here is the line up I see Sir Alex going with:
Goal: Van der Sar
Central Midfield: Giggs
Central Midfield: Carrick
Central Midfield: Anderson
This is similar to the lineup that Sir Alex used against Arsenal in the semifinals. Rooney and Park will track back enough to limit the wing play of Messi and Barcelona and if things go crazy Carlos and the Berba are ready to be called on.
Let's go United.

While not a big fan of the Toon, the black and white shirt meant something, but now because of bad management and spine less players Newcastle will have to fight to rejoin the Premier League. But next season the Toon Army can enjoy their trips to Sheffield and Forest.
Did you ever think that Burnley would be in the Premier League and Newcastle would not.

1. Florida: So last years champions returns Jesus, Tebow; and most of a super defense. Wow this does not set up for a repeat.
2. Oklahoma: All of there key offensive players decided to take another run at the title after being beaten by the Gators in the BCS Title game in Miami.
3.Texas: Left out of the party last year, the Horns have all of the pieces that are need to be playing in the final game of the season.
4. USC: Sure they have to replace most of their defense but they just keep recruiting high school All Americans, so it should not be that big a deal.
5. Penn State: Sure they lost all of their receivers but with a week non-conference schedule it should be easy for the Nittany Lions to still be playing in January.
