United were totaly outclassed. Beaten 3-1, but it could have been more.

In truth United were lucky to get their solitary goal, as Barcelona had the ball in their possession 67% of the time...the United players were run ragged trying to get the ball. Even their very own "ever running machine", Park Ji-sung, ran out of steam, something that I never witnessed before.

Barcelona's dominance was shown by the fact that in the whole 90 minute game United never even managed to get even ONE corner kick!!!

Having said that all 3 goals that Barcelona were / should have been preventable:

The first was caused by the fact that United's left full back, Patrice Evra had gone AWOL, had happened a lot during the game which Barcelona exploited.
For the second goal no fewer than 3 of the United defenders stood back in the penalty area and let the world's greatest player Lionel Messi, get off a close range shot that ended up in the United net. TV pundit and ex player, Andy Townsend, blamed the United keeper, Edwin van der Sar, for being too slow to react...an absolute shit comment...the keeper was probably the best United performer all night (indeed all year) and could not be blamed when the world's best forward is given a "free" shot at goal from close range.
In the case of Barcelona's final goal, Nani, who had only just come onto the field off the sub's bench, lost the first ball he got when he came on (in the penalty box) allowing Villa to curl a beauty of a shot into the top left corner of United's net. That idiot, Townsend then said that the goal came about as the United defenders were making mistakes as they had been worn down by Barcelona's constant possession of the ball...What??? Hello Andy??? How was Nani worn out when he made his mistake...he was only on the pitch 30 seconds!!!

What does this defeat say about the standard of the English Premiership?

United comfortably won the English Premiership by a full 9 points this season, such was their dominance in England. Yet when you saw them playing against Barcelona on could have been deceived into thinking that you were watching Torquay UNITED playing, rather than Manchester UNITED (with all due respesct to the former).

The English think that their's is the best league in the world. One what I saw on Saturday night Spain's La Liga is miles ahead. The rest have a lot of catching up to do.
