Well this is the big one, the two most consistent sides in European football meet again for a rematch. This time its personal. This is the place for hopefully a lot of banter and buildup for the final.

Barcelona, talked about as possibly one of the greatest sides to have played the game in terms of there style and passion to play as fluidly and attacking as possible with arguably the best player on the planet leading there line against a Manchester United side who all season have been labelled a poor side to win the Premier League, that they just scrape through but have proven again and again that they have so much determination and quality throughout there team that the label is undeserved and come into this game arguably fitter and in better condition than Barcelonas side many of whom had a long summer of football. This has all the makings of a classic, hopefully the play lives up to it.

Definitely want Barca to win this. I don't particularly like Man U. And Barca just play with a mentality to be admired. And of course, Messi. He's not only amazing, but he plays the game without trying to cheat in any way. He is a role model.

The best of last year's World Cup winners are in Barca. Carles Puyol, Xavi Hernández, David Villa, Andrés Iniesta. All in Barca. This year's cup belongs to the La Liga Champions!

Nah he's not perfect but he's as near as in the modern game. Dietmar Hamann is the ultimate role model in my eyes no diving, no nonsense and seemingly nice guy. Plus he scored a penalty in the shootout of the 2005 Champions League final with a broken toe!

Hoping Barcelona win on Saturday simply because they are such a joy to watch.

I have a feeling Manchester United will win this, like Wenger said they have a very good chance and will employ the right tactics. Guardiola can't really predict what will happen.
