2009 Champions League Final: The Goals, The Fans and The Celebrations

Here are some pictures of the best Champions League final that I have seen in recent years. Credit must be given to Barcelona for a very composed attitude towards the final. The team refused to be bullied and overawed by Manchester United. In the end, all that was seen from United were displays of frustration by the so-called "Fab Four".

The party will go on for months and months...well at least until pre-season starts.

Thanks! United should be happy doing the domestic double and also winning the Club World Championships.
They are still my vote for the 2000's team of the decade.
