Manchester United apparently have no chance??

Gary Lineker was talking about the Champions League Final on Five Live last night. When asked the question; Can Manchester United win? Two of his replies were as follows:

1. If Manchester United played Barcelona 10 times, they would probably only win one, maybe two games!

2. Barcalona only have to turn up to win!

PENDLE VERDICT – We think that Manchester United should be shown a bit more respect than this. Yes, Gary Lineker should also be shown respect, but isn’t his second point ridiculous in that even if Man U can only win once or twice out of every ten games, then surely Barcelona have to do a lot more than just turn up if they are going to win? The Champions League Final is only one game and apparently they are able to win one or two out of every ten!

We think that Barcelona are the favourites, but wouldn’t be surprised if Alex Ferguson has something up his sleeve to turn them over!

YOUR VERDICT – What do you think?

    Lineker’s biased and he played at Barcelona anyway! This said, Barcelona to win 3-0 and Ferguson to find some excuses as normal.

    Lineker hasnt a clue, the current Barcelona team is arguably one of the best of all time but Arsenal have beaten them in the Champions League this year and you would have to say that Manchester Utd have been a lot better than Arsenal this season so have a very real chance of winning on Saturday. That said Im not a big Man Utd fan and still think Barcelona will win! Go on Barca!

      Jacobsen83, how can you want Barcelona to win? Are you Spanish? Why is it that us Brits seem to take some pleasure out of supporting the european side? I bet you either support Liverpool, Leeds or Manchester City?
      Sorry for getting my grump on; tough day in the office!!
