Barcelona vs Manchester United – Lionel Messi vs Christiano Ronaldo

So Barca have done it. They are the European Football Champions.

Iniesta

Andres Iniesta

Barcelona have shown us what football is.  moving it so brilliantly and beautiful passes, patience (i know it’s a long shot but Liverpool have been close to that lately).  Iniesta once again shoce.  I have always maintained Iniesta is the best player in Barcelona, and today he has again shown us why he is such a gem.  The passes, the runs, the bal control..reminiscent of Zizou – not too fany but fancy enough and effective.  Kinda like the ball is stuck to his feet.

United started well, witg another Christiano Ronalo free kick ( i refuse to call him Ronaldo) gave Barca a few problems in the beginning,and Gerard Pique (former Man Utd) making argurably the most important tackle of the match.. but Barca got back into the game, with Iniesta feeding Eto’o, and him walking past Vidic and scoring from the near post.  Lonel Messi the scored with a brilliantly headed ball..making it 2 nil, and game over seeing Man Utd inability to keep the ball, let alone get hold of it…

Big Sam came to Part, Lio came to party and yes, my man of the match – INIESTA came to party..this is brilliant football.  Tevez started on the bench and am hoping this means a move to Liverpool..

(Oh – i’m writing this with 15minutes left to play – well its now extra time – thats how one sided the match has been)…

Listen to the standing avation Iniesta is getting after being replaced.  any Gray’s man of the match too…

Barca are champions ( i nkow i prefer Real Macdrid – but gosh – somebody need to tell Man Uts no1 retains the Champions Lerague)..

Chelsea vs Barcelona – Winner is the Referee

So do i want to throw myself in the line of a possibly conspiracy and plot by threatening to kill some dude from Norway due to bad officiating during a soccer match. ? How unnecessary right? That said though – had Liverpool been in Chelsea’s shoes i’d probably be as livid if not worse (YNWA!!).  What a pathetic excuse of a referee.  Chelsea should have had at least one penalty (the others could be debatable but Didier was fouled yes).  SO leading 1 nil heading into the last minute of extra time – 10 man Barca stuck – through Iniesta (who i feel does not get as much credit as he deserves).  Nope – that wasn’t the nail on the coffin.  The penalty appeal immediately after was though. Decline – probably cuz there wasn’t much chance for the player to move his hands and he was clearly turning his back onto the ball and it was not intentional.  Ballack could have given the ref a Ricky Hatton right there and then.

Game over everyone turns on the referee.  Even Didier who had been substituted already revealed why he can never be better than the likes of Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o, Raul, David Villa, Del-Piero, Thierry, Scheva, Inzaghi..the list is endless.. Stupidity took over, lack of professinalism, and what followed was one of the reasons why people still look down on us Africans – what a bloody role model…

Top Drog...! What?

Top Drog...! What?

Clearly he was mad after missing a chance (if not chances) to put the game beyond Barca.  I bet had Anelka had that chance, hell even Adebayor or Dirk Kuyt the game would have been  dead and gone.  But once agained Drogba underlined why Chelsea will never win the Champions League – at leat not while he is still their main striker.  Last year a slap on vidic saw him red-carded, leading to Terry having to take a penalty – and we all know what happened.  what a kid – such pathetic childish acts cannot be justified – however wrong the ref was.  When has a ref ever overturned his decision after such acts – yet day in day out footballers seem to think they can influence an already made decsion – 5 seconds is mo than enough for a decision to stand – else it will be too obvious the ref was influenced and he would probably be fired. Oh Didier…

Somebody stop him

Game over? - nope - still time for Didier's yellow card

So now some are saying it was a conspiracy against Chelsea. Come on.  The referee was inexperienced and didn’t want to make mistakes – and he was under so much pressure in trying to prevent any mistakes, made one too many – including the red card on Abidal which clearly wasn’t.  One can say if Chelsea had focused on winning instead of diving over and had take their chances – Did you see how they were still pegged back by 10men – yes it’s Barca but come-one – If you want to win the champions league one must believe that nomatter what team you are playing – long as they down to 10men, you have the advantage. Unless it’s Liverpool Fc – seeing as we all know Torre and Gerrard equals 4 players..lol ha ha ha

All in a day’s game. What a game!!
