Wish I'd kept the Sun and other tabloids from the day after that final,

The Sun ran with

"Savaged By A Teddy" and "“Germans sunk by English sub!”

I bought a mix a English/Spanish/German paper from my hotel the next day. I remember the German one ran with the headline 'Oops'. I found them when my parents got my ticket stub and programme framed.

I heard that Mrs Giggs has left him and taken half of everything that he owns.



She now has 6 more Premiership winning medals that Steven Gerrad

What do Fernando Torres and Imogen Thomas have in common?






They both used to be ******* good footballers...

Moving the final to a Saturday sucks balls - it's given me longer to feel sick just thinking about the game. At least midweek you work, get beers in and then kick off. Oh well, guess I'll be starting earlier on those beers tomorrow!

Been offered tickets to the game at the nth hour as a mate of mine finally got some in the Ballot but had already paid a stupid amount from a ticket dealer and he's panicking about getting rid of a pair. I'll let him sweat a bit more before calling him so that he gives them to me at a silly price (In my dreams!)

Lucky sod - think I am going to mill into town to the SportsCafe mid afternoon, watch the league 2 playoffs and get primed for the big event. Hopefully I'll be coming home on the train past Wembley with lots of happy United fans!

Lou - going for a walk isn't work, no matter the time

Good luck tonight lads and despirte being a blue, I sincerely mean it. There's nothing that I like more than seeing a bunch of fancy dans being taken down a peg or two. Apparently if you listen to the media, Barcelona are the best team ever and are unbeatable (despite losing to Arsenal among others).
When they've won the CL 3 times on the bounce like Ajax or Bayern Munich, they can come back to me with that argument.

That's the point, no one is infallible and Arsenal have proved that applies to Barca this season.

I honestly hope it's a cracking game full of goals and end to end stuff.

Very nervous, but going to be ******** bricks even more as the magic hour approaches. There's nothing like it.

Heading into Didsbury - same pub I went to in 2008 and 2009.

Feels like an old fashioned FA Cup final day - been listening and reading stuff all morning - some great interviews - but apparently we haven't a chance, but all week I have had this feeling that we can do the job tonight.
I think I may be a complete mess my kick off
