    Great game after the first goal for barcelona.

    Manchester United had their game plan totally wrecked, they wanted to press more offensively, but the game control of barcelona and their offensive power send them back to their own court.

    there were times when you could tell how scared where the reds to go after the ball even in their own court that it seemed somtimes around the last 15 minutes that it was the other team who was 2 goals under.

    Cristiano was pretty classless at moments,and Scholes and Divic in a pair of plays, and yep, Puyol and Iniesta, and even Messi once had nice diving actings, which gets me out of my nerves.

    The only thread Manchester seemed to had was Ronaldos speed.

    Deserved win for Barca. Barca's superior technique was evident throughout most of the game. Eto'o quick goal really took the air out of Man U.
    I was a bit surprised that Man U didn't try to "bully" Barca more. Play them more physical.

    Pretty bad showing for Manchester United. Sloppy all through the first half after that one goal.
    2nd half just completely outmatched.

    Again- My teams usually make the championship and lose. Pretty used to it.

    The fact that soccer is literally HUNDREDS of years older than American football and has had that much time to gain popularity might play a part in it too. Just sayin.

    It's possible. It's just a more internationally friendly sport. Fun game.
