After seeing Manchester United pick Arsenal apart today, I couldn’t help but to think what a final it would be if Barca beats Chelsea tomorow.

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t like any of the teams that are left in the competition. But let’s be honest, Barcelona and Manchester United are clearly the two best sides in the World right now. A final between these two would not only be justified, but also mouthwatering. Cristiano and Messi are the two best players in the World right now, and they are surrounded by players like Xavi, Iniesta, Henry, Alves, Rooney, Anderson, Evra, Rio etc.. It would potentially be the best final in years.

Fergy played it perfectly today. Manu were very organized and they were clearly the better side over 180 minutes. Ronaldo proved that he’s still a top 3 player in the World, and I really like how Anderson is slowly showing that he can be an adequate long term replacement for Paul Scholes.

The only unfortunate part for Manu is the loss of Darren Fletcher. He’s such a key instrument in their flow and he will be missed big time for the final in Rome. Although, I can’t understand some people who said it shouldn’t be a foul. ESPN commentator Tommy Smith ( by far the worst commentator in the World ) kept going on about how Fletcher got the ball and it shouldn’t have been a penalty. My response to you Mr. Smith: Read the rules. It doesn’t matter if you got the ball or not if you also chop down the players legs. Ridiculous how he got his job.

Highlights from today’s game:
