    Carrick is not in the mix. Nor is Lampard right now.

    who is, then? gerrard and…?

    55′

    The ref has just legged it over to Deco and booked him. I have no idea what for.

    54′

    Ferdinand wins the header, Ronaldo fizzes in a low cross and Nani’s touch just rolls wide with the help of a partial Milito block.

    back in 5 boys. cant be helped, my bad. brb!

    Carrick plays really badly whenever he gets a chance to play for England. Same with Lampard since the end of Euro 2004.

    Hargreaves usually plays as a defensive midfielder behind Gerrard.

    sorry boys, they have it on TV in my lobby too. wowzers. Nani should have scored

    61′

    Barca change. Guess who? Thierry Henry, that’s who. Iniesta makes way.

    60′

    What a superb run from Nani, he breaks from inside his own half before beating Abidal all ends up and shooting well over the bar.

    59′

    Barca hit back and Iniesta bursts into the area before winning a corner off Brown.

    58′

    Maybe Tevez would have been better off squaring for Park but with such a clear sight of goal you can’t blame him for having a pop.

    57′

    Great chance for Tevez! He plays a lovely one-two with Ronaldo before firing one at Valdes who does well to parry the venomous shot into the air, then claim at the second attempt.

    56′

    Messi races at United centre pairing and makes it to the edge of the area, before slicing a shot well wide, much to the delight of 95% of Old Trafford.

    Carrick gets a card for hauling down Messi, who was in full flow. Free kick, 40 yards out, dead centre.

    62′

    Another good forray from Evara. He’s very lively tonight. His cross hits Toure and though the crowd shout handball, it really wasn’t. At all.

    Deco’s free kick takes a deflection and lands just wide of the post with Van der Sar scuttling across desperately. The resulting corner is met by Rio’s big meaty forehead.

    Henry has gone out to the left for Barca but he can only watch as Ronaldo tries to make the most of a ricochet. Park then picks up the ball to the left of the penalty area. He crosses but Milito is there to hack away.

    ManU is thanking God Abidal is one of the worst crossers ever.

    LOL @ Ronaldo, he hits Zambrotta in the face then makes the diving motion with his hands when Zambrotta goes down.

    And then Ronaldo fouls Zambrotta and gets a yellow.

    Come on ref, give Ronaldo another yellow.

    What the fuck is wrong with Smyth. “He didn’t complain” Yes he did!!!

    Its just not quite happening for Barca. Messi again weaves his way past two before Eto’o fails to gather the ball with his back to goal.

    68′

    Ronaldo has been carded, and despite it being a very trivial booking, I reckon he deserves it for constantly moaning, just cos he’s not playing very well.

    Yaya Toure is the latest to be booked after a lunge on Park. He’ll miss the final if Barca get there. No ‘Gazza style’ tears from the big midfielder though.

    70′

    Barca’s Plan A, B and C has been finalised. Give it to Messi as soon as possible and hope he betas seven men to score. I wouldn’t put it past him mind, the lad’s a genius.

    A funny exchange ensues as Park robs Hnery of the ball before the Frenchman storms back to win it. Henry then undoes all his good work with a horrible back pass to Valdes and United have a corner.

    Nani does well to close Messi down after Ronaldo lost the ball, then stamped his feet on the ground in frustration rather than try and win it back.

    Heart-in-mouth time for Brown as he tangles with Messi; first it could have been a foul, then a handball as Brown went to ground and finally Nani gets the ball away.

    82′

    Then a rare Ronaldo break. He cits in from the right and plants a left foot shot just wide.

    81′

    Great close control from Xavi. He releases Henry on the left but he lacks the threat of old and almost wastes possession before Hargreaves slides in to win the ball back.

    80′

    Good tracking back from Ronaldo; he follows Zambrotta back into his own area as Toure floated one over Evra.

    79′

    Barca win a corner and Henry meets Xavi’s cross but his header from eight yards out is straight at VDS. Chance.

    78′

    Ladies and gents, we are officially entering what those in the trade like to call squeaky bum time. Just over ten minutes left.

    Its all or nothing for Barca now and they pour forward. Bojan works a crossing chance but VDs claims easily.

    83′

    Ronaldo goes down after toe-poking the ball past Puyol. He should have had a free kick but the ref waves play on. Then Tevez puts himself about, winning two tackles to a huge roar from the crowd.

    82′

    Henry tries a curler a la Celtic, but Van der Sar is on his toes and gets across to gather.
