UEFA Champions League final open thread

Barcelona, Manchester United. Two teams that nobody around here likes too much, most likely, these days, but hey. Here's the place for the SBN Arsenal community to discuss the game if you all would like. Try to remain calm, everybody; the storm will be over soon. Keep it civil/chivalrous.

And most of all, despite all the laughs that are sure to ensue, enjoy the game, and enjoy Leo Messi, because he might just be the best player ever to kick a ball.

Here are the lineups:

FC Barcelona: Victor Valdes; Eric Abidal, Javier Mascherano, Gerard Pique, Dani Alves; Sergio Busquets, Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta; David Villa, Lionel Messi, Pedro.

Subs: Oier Olazabal, Carles Puyol, Bojan Krkic, Seydou Keita, Ibrahim Afellay, Adriano, Thiago

Manchester United: Edwin van der Sar; Fabio da Silva, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic, Patrice Evra; Antonio Valencia, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs Park Ji-Sung; Wayne Rooney; Javier Hernandez

Subs: Tomasz Kuszczak, Chris Smalling, Darren Fletcher, Paul Scholes, Anderson, Nani, Michael Owen
