I SWEAR I am not going to write too much this time.
I am SO HAPPY that this was an error- and controversy-free final.
The better team won – if anyone claims that to be false, I’d like to meet you so that I can laugh at you in person.
Seydou Keita as a forward?!
I’m sorry, Eto’o, for hating you over the past two weeks and doubting your ability. You ROCK.
Xavi and Iniesta, I love you both. I could watch you two passing all day long.
Yaya Toure, you ARE a rock.
Carles Puyol, you’re amazing – truly Captain Fantastic.
Silvinho, you outdid yourself today. 36? REALLY?
Busquets, you outdid yourself today. Debut season? REALLY?
Gerard Pique – please please please please always always play like you did today.
Valdes, you are THE MAN. You even beat Park for pace!
The defense played at their best, and surpassed everyone’s expectations with the clean sheet.
Henry, I’m so happy for you. Mission accomplished!
My favorite moments from the night:
Xavi foxing three Manchester United players with a single touch and swivel to find someone in space.
Iniesta foxing three Manchester United players with a single touch and swivel to find someone in space.
Xavi’s ball, and Messi’s header. Both screamed brilliance.
Ronaldo fouling Puyol out of sheer frustration.
Ronaldo crying after the game.
Silvinho crying tears of joy.
Guardiola clenching his fists and screaming in sheer elation.
Henry taking the trophy to Guardiola.
