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

 

Outnumbered

 

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

 

Giddy

 

Relief and a deserved title for Villa

 

A wonderfully refereed game, a welcome sight

 

Dejection

 

Elation

 

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

    Why would Shakira buy 10 sets of a picture with no Pique in it? :p

    Pep’s bad back might be due to being thrown in the air several times a year for the past 3 years.

  3. May 29, 2011

    Am I the only having trouble to find Puyi in the picture?!
    Did our captain feel undeserving or smth due to his lack of playing time?

      if i remember correctly, Puyi was a bit late coming down from the steps and also ended up conversing with someone ta the back of the group and seemed to kinds forget that the pic was being taken then

    The fact our boys dominated on English soil in front of the usual elitist commentators made the victory all that much sweeter! Ahh, I can’t believe we’re witnesses to this generation of talent. What a blessing.

    Does anyone know where I can stream the game on replay? I can’t wait to watch this again!

    I can’t concentrate on anything but Barca today!! Campeones, Abidal playing and then lifting a trophy, MVP goals, Dani’s jokes, team spirit, Pep’s enthusiasm,….

    Great pics, Luke!! They descibe everything that is rolling in my mind.

    Visca el Barca, the best team in the world!!

    I downloaded a 27gb version of the 2009 final..
    I wouldnt mind downloading a 100gb version of this match if there is one out there *looking at you JNice* πŸ˜†

    Oh, did anyone find a SKY HD broadcast that is 4gb and above?
    I found one but it’s only 3.2gb, not good enough πŸ˜†

    Top performers last night in numerical order;
    1) Messi
    2) Pique
    3) Iniesta
    4) Xavi
    5) sMasch

      What about Busi? He was brilliant! I’d put him in over Pique.

      Everyone had a great game, though.

    • Jnice
      May 29, 2011

      Same. I thought Busi was top 3 last night. He’s smooth.

    • Luke
      May 29, 2011

      Buquets was top 2 for me, his short passing is brilliant. His game is unbelievable.

    • Blow-Grenade
      May 29, 2011

      Busi was the MOTM OTM (other than Messi).

      ^Yes! Xavi is so awesome!

    Anyone else worried that Villa might fall off the bus? He looks pretty loaded!

    I’m waiting for Drunk!Messi to make a return!

      Kari – I can’t watch the celebrations. Please, please try to find/upload a video of the bus and camp nou celebrations when you find the time.

      Thank you!!!

      No problemo, I’ll look around fbtz afterwards. πŸ™‚

      Check out http://www.tv3.cat tomorrow. They will probably have the full videos there, they did for the Liga celebrations.

    • May 29, 2011

      Ah. That was on my mind too, but I couldn’t remember the exact site! Moltes gracies!

  16. May 29, 2011

    Jeffren rocking sunglasses. Xavi directing the celebrations from his perch at the back of the bus. Gosh, I <3 Xavi so much.

    Barcelona B playing in an empty stadium, poor things. Everyone is at the parade or the Camp Nou.

    Thiago is cracking me up! He’s like, “Yeah, I could get used to this.”

    πŸ˜€

  19. May 29, 2011

    That guy really likes Pedro, no? πŸ˜†

  20. blitzen
    May 29, 2011

    There is a Boixos Nois banner at the B game. They love Lucho, apparently.

  21. May 29, 2011

    I love when they show the players from inside the bus. Messi and Masche are just chillin’, sippin’ their Estrella Damms and taking it all in.

    Valdes is p*ss drunk. Messi is (disappointingly :mrgreen: ) sober.

    Pedro!! and Iniesta are just sweetly looking off in the distance, sometimes trying to party but aren’t as crazy as Pinto, Valdes, Dani and Pique. πŸ˜†

    • blitzen

      I think Masch is a little smasched too! πŸ˜›

      Even barcastuff isn’t paying attention. πŸ˜†

    Aww, Busi is so animated. He look so happy. *tear*

  25. May 29, 2011

    Oye! Gerard! Stop spraying innocent people (read: Bojangles and Xavi) with champagne!

  31. May 29, 2011

    Must be such a good time to be from Barcelona, eh? Their handball team, basketball and football team are killin’ it. They must be so proud. I would be too — actually, scratch that. I am proud. πŸ˜€

  32. May 29, 2011

    Also, watching Messi’s goal again, I love his wild celebration. That grey mike thing on the ground never stood a chance. πŸ˜†

    • blitzen
      May 29, 2011

      My favourite bit was Busi’s flying tackle on the corner post to celebrate, I think it was Pedro’s goal. He was lucky, he could have got a card for that. πŸ˜†

    Sigh, I wish I lived in Barcelona. /wistful smile

    If you’re wondering why they keep showing Sabadell, it’s because the football club has been promoted to the Segunda from Segunda B. And they are Catalan, obviously.

    • May 29, 2011

      And they don’t like us very much. Apparently.

    • Para
      May 29, 2011
