Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

BBC reports an interesting fact...

"only foreigners score for FC Barcelona in the final of the European Cup/Champions League."

There could be only three foreigners on the pitch for Barca tonight. Dani Alves, Eric Abidal and Lionel Messi.

Will be interesting to see if any Spaniards gets a goal tonight..

wow. actually pritty interesting. If that stat stays like it is, United will have a great chance at winning this tonight!

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Big question for Fergie - should he play Rooney and Hernandez up front?

Is Hernandez a luxury in a game like this when the chances are United will be chasing the ball around for long periods?

Is it worth an extra midfielder?

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Latest rumours:

* Berbatov left out altogether

* Scholes on the bench. Otherwise largely the team that beat Chelsea starts for United.

*vds, Fabio, rio, vidic, Evra, valencia, Carrick, giggs, park, Rooney, Hernandez

ALL THIS IS STILL UNCONFIRMED!

Re: LIVE - Champions League: Barcelona v Manchester United

Man Utd start with Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez up front, with no place for Darren Fletcher.
