United unable to deny a brilliant Barcelona


It cannot possibly be denied! Barcelona has proved once again that they are simply the best club side in the world. The look on Sir Alex Fergusons face at the trophy presentation after the game said it all after the Catalans clinically brushed Manchester United aside with an emphatic 3-1 victory at Wembley.
