And again, it was Barcelona that was victorious, clearly, the better team won. Though Manchester had their revenge in the pre season games, I’d say Barcelona still has an edge in terms of attacking football.

SAD….what a waste to a glorious performance all season…Man U shown that you can bounce bak on the day from poor decisions in most competitions ,but not yet in UEFA knockout- You just got to get key aspects right from the beginning!!!

It was Man United who were too exhausted to run at the end of the game.English journalists need to tone down the excessive hype of the EPL…

I’m still baffled as to why they were deflated by the first Barca goal. Afterwards and for long stretches of the game they dropped back and allowed Barca to control the ball and impose their style of football.Also, I’m still trying to understand why Park was in the starting lineup and Tevez was on the bench watching the game.That said, Barca was the better team and deserved to win.and Messi?He closed out his best season in Europe by scoring a fantastic goal, with a header, of all ways for him to score.La Liga, Copa Del Rey, Champions League and top goal scorer in the Champions League.All of these things won in one season and at the age of 21.I must ask the following:What did Ronaldo accomplish in his football career when he was 21 years old?

This is to emphasize about all those polemics happened in the last few weeks stigmatizing Rome’s organization of the Final. Many requested it’s replacement with some other city. Even though a ManU fan was stabbed on his leg in Rome none died! My basic question is: how can you put in doubt the others while yourselves should just flashback some twenty years to remember what you’re able of.

I don’t think so. To the neutral this was a very dull anti-climax. Neither side played particularly well. Hats off to Barca for the way they took their chances, but as for Man U, they looked jaded and bereft of ideas after the first goal, and never really posed a threat.
