Champions League Final

Sometimes you lose. Getting beaten by the best team in the world is no disgrace, especially in your second consecutive Champions League Final, in a season where you won the league, having strolled it since January.

The scoreline made it look worse that it was. United had set up to attack. The first goal was going to be decisive, and Barca scored early. And, once Barca score, they become a nightmare to play against.

Still a wonderful season for United. Maybe we needed defeat to pick us up for next year, give us our hunger back.
