Six of the best CL finals (or European Cup finals, if you’re old school), with all the YouTube evidence you need 1. Real Madrid 7-3 Eintracht Frankfurt (1960) A ten-goal thriller, although the result was never really in doubt.

French midfielder almost puts Cashley out of the Champions League final According to Chelsea, Ashley Cole should be fit enough to play tonight, but no thanks to Claude “Mad Mak” Makelele, who scythed down his team-mate with a two-footed tackle, of the type that might have earned the Frenchman a red card in a proper […]

Choose your Man Utd starting XI… Fergie has a very tough job picking just eleven players for tomorrow’s CL final. He has told the media “I know my team”, but obviously he has not yet revealed it. Which team would you start with? Here’s my selection, in a 4-3-3 formation: The back five Edwin van […]
Sponsored post alert! It is not unheard of for games between United and Chelsea to be settled by three goals, usually with Chelsea winning – most famously in one of the greatest performances under Jose Mourinho when they comprehensively outplayed United at Stamford Bridge to win the Premiership title three years ago. That year they […]
Spurs midfielder goes all Miami Vice A good look for JJ? We think not.
Liverpool’s least glamourous Spice Boy vs Peter Sellers Aptly, this is one of the strangest lookalikes we’ve ever run. Spotter’s badge to Emmet Farragher.
Location, location, location – should it matter to a professional footballer? It’s grim up north, so they say. They might have a point – for example, here’s the best pic I could find of the Middlesbrough skyline (with apologies to Jeff Stelling, who I would not want to upset). There’s no doubt that in the […]
Monday’s most attractive transfer gossip. Surely one of these might happen? 1. Samuel Eto’o to Spurs Tottenham have outbid Italian giants AC Milan and Inter for the mouthy Barcelona striker (pictured). The Yids will go up to Â£24m for the Cameroon international – that’s Â£8m more than the Italian sides are prepared to pay. [Epping […]

More fiendish than Dr Shinawatra 1. Career path Blackpool, QPR, West Ham, Man City, Cardiff City (current) 2. Multiple choice Who sponsored the FA Cup between 1995-98? a) Axa, b) Carslberg, c) Littlewood’s, d) Nationwide 3. Picture round Who’s this? 4. Team-mates Peter Ndlovu, Dean Windass, Phil Thompson, Chris Kamara and Steve Bruce have all […]

Please be kind to our sponsored post The long road to Moscow. Somehow it seems the most fitting city for this showdown of Mancunian brilliance and Chelsea’s winning machine. There are generous odds on the game going to extra time or penalties. Equally there are interesting numbers on the game going to a draw after […]
Friday’s best transfer talk – truth or lies? 1. Gerard Pique to Barcelona The Manchester United defender is believed to have agreed personal terms with Barca. El Mundo Deportivo reports that the Spanish club have already agreed a four-season deal with the player’s representatives. [Talking Soccer] 2. Ricardo Carvalho to go wherever Jose Mourinho goes […]
C-Ron hints at Spanish move after Champions League final Cristiano Ronaldo says he may consider his future at the club after next week’s Champions League final – great timing C-Ron, I bet Fergie will be chuffed to hear that. “I’m happy here, but let’s see what happens after the Champions League final,” Ronaldo told Antena […]

Man Yoo and Chelski unveil CL final kits Do fans actually like having to shell out for one-off, special edition commemorative shirts? If I was a Chelsea or Man Utd fan, I certainly wouldn’t want to spend the best part of Â£40 on a shirt that looks almost exactly the same as the one I […]
