Good for Barcelona. They played wonderfully tonight. It looks like the Argentine national team out there with that passing.

Man U were tired and beat half an hour in. WTF?!

Congrats to Barca. I thought the game would be much closer. Man U hasn't played too much from a deficit this year and they couldn't recover.

Man u dominated the first 10 min but after eto scored they lost evreything.

After weathering the storm in the first 5 minutes, Barca did exactly what they needed to do - keep possession and stay balanced while conceding no space for Crissy to run at them. United had very few opportunities to exploit Barca's makeshift defense.

Reminded me of 1994 when AC Milan had Baresi and Costacurta suspended for the final and a makeshift defense. Came out, played a very tidy and tactically perfect match to crush the much-fancied Barca with Romario and Stoichkov.

Was Crissy on the field in the 2nd half? Was hard to tell.

Barca absolutely dominated ManUre. Not even close.

After Chelsea I was really annoyed as I felt the referee was the only reason Barca was in the final. But good god they owned ManUre and I was loving it. Every time Red Nose loses it is proof that God loves the world.

Barca completely dominated Man U. It was awesome. Man U didn't know what to do with Messi. Putting 3 guys on him couldn't stop him, at least not until they fouled him.

I loved it. Barca. Mes que un club!

I especially loved the fact that during the second half Puyol was pushing forward from the right and Christiano Ronaldo had to make some dirty fouls to stop him. Priceless

And it is right and proper that that diving crybaby lost again.

Congrats to Barca! Disappointed in United. They didn't force their game. Looked confused at times. I can't say it was a good game.

I was rooting for Barcelona, thought they were the better team, and was excited to see them win . . . BUT . . . .

Man, they are shameless floppers. If you go down like your leg needs to be immediately amputated, you should sit out the next ten minutes or something - after all, safety first.

Every time I watch, I am reminded why I am a bemused football observer and not a fan. The NBA took steps (somewhat unsuccessful, but still) to eliminate shameless flopping, why can't they do it in the Champ. Cup?

Dani Alves = shamless flopper. The rest of Barcelona not really. Henry sometimes. Iniesta goes down quite a bit, but he doesn't flop. It's more because players like him and Messi tend to draw a lot of fouls. But if you're insinuating that Puyol was flopping, that's absurd. And Busquets almost got his leg amputated by yet another horrendous, shameful Scholes "tackle."
