It was a geat, throbbing Champions league final between the British giants. At least there were some British players on the pitch.
Man U destroyed Chelsea in the first half but to their credit Chelsea dominated the second.
But maybe it was a night of destiny? Too many coincidences?
The 50th Anniversary of the Munich Air Disaster, which marked Britain’s early dominance in Europe (The Cabbage were right up there though).
Sir Bobby, at trackside, surviving the Munich air disaster and then going on to lift the cup in 1968, only a year after Celtic.
Ryan Giggs, the ultimate professional, beating Sir Bobby’s atttendance record in such a momentous match.
Sir Alex, winning a European trophy in his third decade running and inspiring a great team to greatness.
And Ronaldo, scores a beauty and misses Man U’s only penalty. Can you conceive of how unfair a postscript on his season that would have been?
It were a roller coaster.
And at the end of the day you have to say: it was style over wallet.
