Champions League semi finals (second leg) tonight and tomorrow

My prediction for the final.
Man Utd V Liverpool

But as a Man Utd supporter am I being a bit bias?

As an Evertonian I will shout for Chelsea.

Are there any English players in either squad?

Maybe 2-2

That's English players per side.;-)

If Chelsea hadn't beat us 2-1 on Saturday I might of as well, but they did so I wont (thought I would get that out of the way before someone else mentioned it).

Barcelona could sneak it, they were by far the better side in the first leg and have more natural talent available.

It's not over yet.

Home tie is an advantage. Gonna be amazing atmosphere but I just get the feeling that United are feeling the pressure a bit. Hope they keep it together and I reckon it will be 2-1 to United. Then I think it will be Chelsea in the final because I don't think Liverpool will overcome the Stamford Bridge record.

I am a Man Utd fan, and my concern is that some of our main players look a little jaded to me,and perhaps carrying niggling little injuries, and may have played too many games over the last wee while, and Barcelona are an excellent side. The defeat by Chelsea on Saturday will not have helped as there is now increased pressure in the last 2 league games.

I think both games are in the balance and could go either way, I just hope they are good entertaining matches with plenty good football.

I have been a huge fan of Alex Ferguson since he was Aberdeen manager in the eighties, and I would really like him to be able to get his hands on the European cup for the 2nd time. He has been a fantastic manager for both Aberdeen and Man Utd.

And I disagree with him, it was a penalty for Chelsea on Saturday.

Chelsea have not lost at home since the year dot. Man U didnt get the away goal so have to score minimium 2 tonight to make sure and with Mr Rooney and Vidic not looking fit?.

Just hope Drogba and Ballack are mates again

I too am a Man U fan and hope they reach the final. Liverpool seem to do well in Europe, and if they reach the final it should be an exciting game whoever they play, but my money is on Man u to win both titles.

"Barcelona could sneak it, they were by far the better side in the first leg and have more natural talent available."

They had the possesion but did nothing with it. Utd certainly deserved the win there, 3 clear penalties but only one given too. Barca have talent, no doubt about that, but they are a group of individuals, not a team.

Prediction - Man Utd 3-0
Tommorows game: Chelsea on penalties

Don't forgot St Mirren Fergie done a good job their as well I was at the game when St Mirren got promoted to the Premier League great atmosphere, great manager.
