the time has come...

In 24 hours one of the hottest games in European football will commence at the Luzhniki Stadium, Moscow. The battle between the Red Devils against the Blues for the coveted UEFA Champions League trophy.

Leading up to the game both teams have been going at it verbally to psyche one another out. At the end of the day is what happens on the field tommorrow that counts.

Manchester United are gunning for a double (and their 3rd Champions League title!) while Chelsea are hoping not to go home empty handed this season.

Their last encounter at Stamford Bridge was a pretty heated one but I expect this to be much worse. Who will steer their teams to victory? Will it be Ronaldo or Lampard? Rooney or Drgoba? Or like in 1999, will it be a super sub (Malouda or Tevez perhaps?) who comes in and changes everything. Only time will tell. Brace yourselves folks for an amazing night of wonderful football. :D

My thoughts on the first 11 for Manchester United would be VDS, Evra, Vidic, Ferdinand, Brown, Park, Scholes, Carrick, Ronaldo, Hargreaves and Rooney. Tevez and Giggsy to come in towards the last 30 odd minutes to change things up a bit. What say you? ;)

Glory glory Man United!
