kings of europe...

What a spectacular final in Moscow! Hope all you footy fans didn't miss this historical all English Champions League final. What heart and passion was thrown onto the pitch by both teams. Told you it was gonna be a cracker. :D

At the end of it all, the team with the most desire won it. The game was right down to the wire ending in 120 minutes 1 - 1. Great header by Ronaldo in the 26th minute before Lampard scoring the equaliser just before half time. Then it was a tensed 75 minutes where both teams were picking at one another.

It was unfortunate that the title was decided with penalties but how else when both teams were not giving in. Always hated penalties. Too freaking tensed plus its all down to luck. I was off my seat pacing around the living room, heart pounding. Felt like I was one of the boys I tell ya.

Somehow I knew CR7 was gonna miss it and when he did my heart fell. What made it worse was when none of the Chelsea boys missed their shots till the 5th round. Terry slipping and hitting the woodwork was like a blessing from the heavens! It was a great way to cap the game with Giggsy slotting in the winner and Van De Sar saving Anelka's spot kick.

What a glorious end to the season. A well deserved double for the Red Devils. Congrats boys and big kudos to Sir Alex Ferguson. A true mastermind of the game. Never doubt his tactics as without a doubt he'll always surprise you. ;)

Glory glory Man United! Champions of 2008!
