So the season of football culminated at Rome and Barcelona would proudly carry the tag of “European Champions” until someone else wins next time.
Looks like I did actually tempt the fate by writing my previous post.
As a United fan, I must admit, I have been hurt, distraught, gutted and disappointed to lose the final on the grandest stage of all. But I have to be brave and admit that the better team has won the battle over 90 minutes of football play. Barcelona were much better team, looked more confident on and off the ball and played some fantastic football along the way.
One defeat today does not make this team any lesser.
We still are a great team, but just a shame, it was not our day today.
This is definitely not the end of the world and when they would reflect on the season campaign they would be proud of themselves on what they have achieved over that period. Hopefully the defeat in this final would spur us to more glory along the way in future.
We have played most matches than any other European club in the season and won three trophies along the way. Been to semi final of one and to the final of other tournament. By no means its a disappointing season for sure!
Unfortunately it ended in a sour taste with us being soundly beaten by Barcelona. Although I am a United fan, for some reason, I do not find it hard to digest that the better team have won today. Barcelona has been in scintillating form throughout the year and they also have completed the first Spanish treble and have achieved their share of history !
What next for United now?
I just hope to have a stable summer period for United now. Hopefully we could get Tevez on our rolls by next season and could try and emulate Barca model with our own Fab 4 of Roony, Ronaldo, Tevez & Berbatov.
We would come back better for sure next year. I just hope this defeat would inspire this team to perform better next year and coming years.
Can we start the next season of Champions League tomorrow please !!
