The final was the first European final for Ajax since 1996, when they lost to Juventus as they tried to defend their Champions League title they won 22 years ago today. It was the first for United since the Champions League final six years ago, which they lost to Barcelona. United's victory is the first for an English side in a European final in four years.

Ajax form a guard of honour for United as they go to receive their winners' medals and the trophy. Move of class from an able, up-and-coming squad who gave their best effort.

This also completes a "lesser Treble" for United, having won the Community/Charity Shield and the League Cup earlier in the campaign.

Total class act by Ajax. Know first hand how hard it is to stand up there to get a second place (losers) trophy. Now can't wait for Saturday and the FA Cup.

Fuckers.

Perhaps but they had a better plan and executed better than Chelsea. I think the early goal shocked Chelsea and it took them too long to recover. See it in soccer all the time. Early goal and the other team seems to forget they have 85 minutes left in the game.

Well as predicted Arsene Wenger did indeed save his job as manager of Arsenal by winning the FA Cup. Signed a new contract this afternoon. So I decided to turn on ESPNFC and listen to what they have to say. WOW!!! They are blasting the owner and not holding back. They think Wenger is way past being a good manager, doesn't understand football and how its played today at high levels, and should have been let go.

 

For those interested I'd suggest you get on ESPNFC and see if they have a replay of the session today. Holy cow I haven't heard this strong a bashing of a football manager, maybe ever. Way entertaining!!!
