    I think it’s fair to point out that for the last three games of the season, Barcelona played inexperienced sides as they had already won the league and were easing up for the Champions League final. They also beat off a team that have spent unprecedented amounts of money in a fruitless attempt ‘knock them off their perch’. IMO, Real Madrid are by a distance the second strongest team around at the moment. I also think Valencia and Villareal would push Manchester United and Chelsea very close were they to compete in the Premier League.

    I’ve seen this year’s Manchester United side being outplayed against Arsenal, Liverpool and Man City in the last few months as well as get very lucky with decisions against Blackpool, Wigan and West Brom.

    I genuinely think this Barcelona team is the best I have witnessed in my life (29) and would beat this Manchester United side three times in every five.
