King of Fifa:I disagree with your comment the reason why we lost is because nobody stuck to their task now that we have lost the final the signings we need to make are, Ashley Young, Luka Modric, Pepe, Andreas Beck and Falcal and the people we need to sell are Owen, Hargreaves, Obertan and Gibson.
barca's too strong for us to cope! d only BPL club can beat them is chelsea,d only way to stop barca is to play high or long ball...we can't do that cos we're too little upfront! pique won all in d air last night... i was wonder why SAF put giggs there instead of anderson? and valencia instead of nani? we need a lot of energy in d midfield while gissy n valencia can't trace back... look at the shoot of target,we really looked ordinary to them... i hope next year we can buy some quality midfielder or big size foward to play d old english style when meeting barca!
Fear, simple as that. Respect your opponent yes but do not fear him. SAF picked a team of grafters purely to try to stop Barca so Barca didn't have to worry about stopping anyone. Don't tell me that Valencia is better than Nani, that Giggs is not a spent force with something more serious on his mind, that Berbatov is not UTD's most skillful player, that Anderson was not only hitting form at the right time but scoring as well and that playing long balls up to Hernandez deprived him of his true forte of being a goal poacher. Van der sar played like it was his last match leaving his near post unguarded for the first, letting a simple central shot bounce away from him, poor game indeed but then he should've already been replaced by Ben Foster who so stupidly was sold to Birmingham. Then there is SAF himself, got it so wrong two years ago by playing the entire midfield and strikers out of position, and this time just didn't pick his best players to give Barca a real game. Tactically he has proved himself to be inept time and time again not only with team selection in the premiership but especially in europe and last night he proved himself incapable of picking a team to trouble Barcas defence, a defence with Macherano at it's centre for pity's sake. My heart goes out to Berbatov who has had a great season, linking with Hernandez early on, hat trick against Liverpool, but once Rooney blackmailed himself back into the side once again back to dropping him to the bench and last night not even there at all.
Then there is the general state of football itself, diving and cheating being accepted, little more than a beach ball being used that the little men can hit hard and the keepers can't hold, players being more concerned about their contracts rather than acheiving on the pitch, and corruption right at the highest level. This is what satellite tv money has done to the beautiful game and there is no one in the media who has the guts to stand up and say it for fear again of losing their highly paid jobs. Everytime they say that a simple side foot goal is brilliant they are lying to you, everytime Messi moves to his left and hits that beach ball into the net they are lying to you, everytime they tell you that Barca are the greatest team ever they are lying to you and everytime they are lying to you they are selling you something that isn't real. Just continue paying your subscriptions and keep on swallowing the lies and get fat on the diet of burgers and beer sold during the ad breaks, then get up in the morning and go to your place of work and keep your head down and *** up so that you can continue to afford to pay for those lies. Or you could look around you, to your family and friends who are your real wealth and treat football as the entertainment that it is, and see through the lies, your very life depends on it.
wazza007:Barca were Considered the best even last year.But why do you think inter beat them?? Tactics!!! No doubt we lost to the better team( maybe the best team) still terribly disappointing last night for us
I second that. We would probably still lose the game, but at least we would not look that much helpless. And if you ask me which team is better Inter last year vs. United this year, I would pick us with no hesitation. But we were so much low in confidence and seemed to be playing like a hard working championship team against an EPL leading team with superior skills and composure. I am sure we will come back stronger next year, and I am craving for a revenge.
MUFans: alexstyles:Shame Van der Sar conceeded all three of those goals. CHEAP GOALS. He must be very dissapointed with himself. There were other reasons as well. Giggs, valencia, carrick (chicharito couldnt do anything there was no supply). Rooney was awesome. We probably were not expecting them to shoot. Thank you VDS for all your work. We still love you. David Villa's goal is cheap goal?
