Manchester United Vs Chelsea … I wont be watching the Champions League final.

So this years Champions League final is between Chelsea & Manchester United and I couldn’t think of a worse advert for British football than this. It’s a repeat of last years rubbish display of football that was the FA Cup final, one of the dullest games I’ve ever watched.

Chelsea always play not to concede a goal and score on the break, and if the tactics deployed by Manchester United against Chelsea the other week are anything to go by, so will they. Hopefully they will have learned a lesson and not repeat that.

I’m not a fan of any of the teams involved in the semis, but I think a Liverpool – Manchester final would have been a much better advert for football in this country. At least the 2 sides would set out to play attacking football. You just have to look at the top scorers table and Liverpool have 4 players, a total of 22 goals between them.

However it turned out to be a really good game. Can’t stand Scum U and I’m indifferent about Chelsea but it was probably the best final since Liverpool won. One day the Tricky Trees will be back at the top in Europe. Though possibly not in my lifetime.

You’re right Simon, the game was better than I thought, I started watching when I heard Man U had scored, a much more open game than the Cup Final last year.
