All Hail the Ginger Prince


Manchester United are in the Champions League final for first time in nine years.

Manchester United 1-0 over Barcelona. The lone goal a fabulous 30 yard strike by Paul Scholes. As the song goes, Paul Scholes, he scores goals! This ensures an all-England final (against either Liverpool or Chelski)

For me MOTM was Rio Ferdinand who anchored the makeshift United defense, while Wes Brown (other than a few errant whacks on van der Sar's head), Evra, Park and Tevez had strong games. Hargreaves survived a game at left back, but barely. Hope Evra's injury is not serious but he got a boot in the head which is never good.

Here's the goal in all its glory:

Paul Scholes is sick. I would do anything to halve a goal like that.
