^^ Think you answered your own question there
He'll be gone in the summer. Fergie obviously thought that Owen was a better option for the final.
Barcelona were brilliant, and thank God they didn't need to resort to diving all over the place to sour the occasion. As it was it was a magnificent spectacle of showcase football.
To be honest, they're playing exceptional football at exactly the wrong time for the rest of Europe. Man Utd, Chelsea, Milan, Inter - all ageing sides or sides in transition.
I'd be worried if I were United - that side needs a major overhaul IMO - Giggs, Scholes, Van der Sar all need replacing, and IMO, if Man Utd really want to compete at the very highest level again then Carrick, Park and Valencia need to be improved upon.
