The Championship in Stills

Kari posted celebratory photos yesterday. Here is another photo memorial of the entire game. We hope you enjoy. I’m sure there will be a review up later, but does it really matter through the champagne anyway?

The prize




Team pictures, Messi's mom ordered ten sets


A little English flair


A worthy strike


Hug it out


Rooney slides home after a worthy strike


Valdes had about as much chance as you or I


Busi watch out, there's a carney on your back!


Van der Sar deserved a better final game.


Dancing with myself


Shooting gallery


Insert easy MESSIah joke




Relief and a deserved title for Villa


A wonderfully refereed game, a welcome sight






United acquitted themselves well, but there was no stopping Pep's boys


Honorary captain, heart of the squad, trophy lifter


A better team picture, Shakira bought 10 sets


I think I've seen this before somewhere


A deserved kiss: man of match, tourney, year

    Pique hitting back at all the haters – we don’t take drugs, we don’t pay the refs, we just play football.

      I really hope someone can post translations of the speeches!

    Pique. Future capita, I swear!

    Aren’t the rest of them going to speak?

    • May 29, 2011

      I guess not. Only the people who promised to talk after the 28th had to.

    • Ryan
      May 29, 2011

      Yeah, only a few spoke before they started celebrating again.

      Not enough drunkeness.

    I wonder if they’re going to broadcast Shakira’s concert too. 😆

    Thats it Messi!

    • May 29, 2011

      I knew he would cop out, yo. He’s Messi, he doesn’t do emotional speeches. His one-liners are boss, though.

  11. May 29, 2011

    Dudes, are you rushing for Shakira? Bleh. They should broadcast that concert to make it up to us!

    Job well done, boys! Now go have a nice rest, regrow some hair (Pep), and enjoy yourselves. 😀

    Hmm, so I missed the celebrations again. Convalescence sucks 🙁

    Hehe that MAD dude from the Inter offside:

    Handling in the area no penalty – someone goes up to Mesi shoulder to shoulder gets a caution… anyone remember any game we have ever played against JuBentus?

    Barcelona are just like them… I think that’s why we hate them so much. They are like JuBe from the Moggi years… always getting help.

    The only real difference is that Barca get to win a Champions League final every now and again…

    Even some of the Inter fans had to admit he was being ridiculous. Gotta love it. 😀

    Thanks for the video jnice!
    Great little detail from MAcherano to Liverpool fans

      Yup. That was the best moment during the match. He went to Villa after that. And there’s no doubt that Villa and Xavi are best buds. Absolutely love it!

    Hmm, it seems Berbatov hasn’t taken a liking to SAF’s snub. He’s reached the last year of his contract, so we can get him on the cheap. If he were to leave, I don’t think ManU would mind as long as he doesn’t go to a direct rival. He’s good in the air, got good feet, and doesn’t mind sitting on the bench. What say?

      Berba is a luxury player. He is even more nonchalant than Ibra. definitely not one for us. Got good skills though.

    Quick recap on the speeches:
    Guardiola: “everyone spoke in the last celebration, everyone but this guy, let’s hear what he has to say”
    Messi: “I don’t really have anything to say” (LOL)
    Abidal: thanks Puyol and Xavi for their gesture towards him
    Iniesta: “My heart tells me there’s nothing better than being a cule”
    Valdés: “there’s something missing here” (ties catalan flag to the Spanish League cup). “Now everything is fine”
    Piqué: “A friend of mine said this to me, he told me, you have to say this, so I’m gonna say it. We don’t take drugs, we don’t dive, we don’t buy the referees, we just play football”

      LOL Messi. He looked so so happy yesterday when he was walking down with the cup, I hadn’t seen him that happy in a while. I think last year’s World Cup exit took a bigger toll on him than we think, and yesterday’s match was his redemption (to himself, of course).

      Thanks for the translations Pilar

    Apparently, five of our players wanted to swap shirts with Scholes yesterday. Iniesta won the race.

    • Nav
      May 29, 2011

      Scholes looked so weird wearing Iniesta’s shirt 😀

    • blitzen
      May 29, 2011

      That is actually quite adorable. I know Xavi was one of the others.

      May 29, 2011

      According to the person who tweeted that, it was Pique, Messi, Xavi, Iniesta, and Pedro.

      Oops, Busquets, not Pique.

      How can you feel too disappointed with a result when you know it was the right one?

      There isn’t anything we could have differently which would have resulted in us winning last night. I’m sorry if that comes across as negative and defeatist, but we’re not in the same league as Barcelona, nobody is.

      Refreshingly honest. Props to ManU, both the players and the fans. It was an excellent game and they should feel proud they played as well as they did.

    And in case anyone cares, Barcelona B beat Salamanca 5-1 today! They currently sit in 4th place with one more game to play and could get up to 3rd if they win next week and Granada loses or draws. Well done to them! Luis Enrique will be very happy with that, especially since mean old Pep kept stealing his best players. The future looks bright.

    Good luck to Lucho wherever he ends up (Roma?)!

    I’m loving all the media plaudits we’re raking in now for two reasons. One because I think we do god damned deserve it. The boys put on a spectacular season and deserve every single bit of praise they get. And two because ultimately Mourinho’s plan to get the world to hate us has failed miserably. Now even our rivals talk about us in awe.


    • May 29, 2011

      My favorite part is that the press now says “No team in Europe could beat this Barça.” meaning.. nobody cares they (EE) won the Copa del Rey.
