United wins in penalties, 6-5.
I’ll admit, I’ve only seen the highlights but I downloaded the match via that fun method that rhymes with Ritvorrent and isn’t at all illegal – no not at all.
Also, as much as I hate penalties, anything that makes Nicolas Anelka the donkey makes me a happy man.
But this season, United was by far the best and most consistent team I’d seen this year. Early on, I thought Roma would crush all, but they slowed and United just chugged on, waited for Arsenal to implode and held off Chelsea in the league and Champions League. Cristiano Ronaldo has had one of the best season I’ve ever seen an individual have, and if he caps it off with a great performance at the European Championships, you have to start putting him up there with some of the greats.
United was great, but I am more interested in what Chelsea does. If Chelsea elects to reconstruct the squad that could turn the European transfer market into an absolute mob-scene as Abromovich and Barcelona chuck ridiculous amounts of cash around (and likely at each other’s players).
I’ll have more once I watch the whole match.
