Champions League Preview

The Champions League Final is the year's biggest sporting occasion. In 2009 the soccer showpiece overtook the Superbowl in viewing figures. Now, with the game being played on a Saturday and between arguably the two best club teams on the planet, the numbers are expected to be higher than ever. So it's no wonder that the cup with the big ears dominates today's football news. The Telegraph claims to know Utd's line-up [Carrick rather than Fletcher], The Guardian claims Rooney need a magic moment [more magic than the 80 yr old hooker?], Sid Lowe claims Busquets is an unsung hero [to racist divers?], Jack Wilshere claims to know how to stop Barca [run around a lot], while Pique claims to be in dreamland [well he does play for Barca and go out with Shakira].

Meanwhile, Fergie came up with an original pre-game tactic last night by getting his team to see a more frightening spectacle than Barca: Jersey Boys.
