Champions League Final

This evening could crown a momentous season for Manchester United. Winning the league at a canter, going to Japan during the crowded Christmas fixture period and winning, winning the League cup (ok, but still), and hopefully, giving Barcelona the bosh this evening in Rome must count as pretty fucking good going by anyone's standards.

Messi vs Ronaldo is dominating coverage, and although the spectacle of these two going head to head as the (unofficial) best footballers in the world is cream yourself exciting, my prediction is that this will be a midfield battle. I'm praying Iniesta isn't fit, and that Pique remembers the good times at United to do us a couple of favours, and that Nemanja Vidic breaks Henry's leg. Ok, maybe that's a bit much, but I do hope this encounter has a bit of zest to it. I'm also expecting a big game from Rooney, who has quietly managed to create an aura of gravitas around him with his unselfish, startlingly adult performances, that was unthinkable a few years ago.
