Not long now so here is a thread for all the news in regards to the game and players and officials involved.

Come on peeps what are your views on the game and who do you think will win!

I am surprised that many peeps (pundits) are going for the Chavs in this game!

Here we come Moscow come on United!!!

Sir Alex Ferguson is taking a full squad with him to Russia's capital Moscow as the team departed from Manchester international airport on Monday afternoon.

The boss takes 24 players with him for the Champions League final against Chelsea. He says he already knows his team, but picking seven substitutes - and subsequently leaving six players out - will not be easy.

"I know my team, but picking the substitutes is the biggest problem," he said. "I’m not going to enjoy it. There are going to be some very good players I have to leave out.

"It’s not easy to tell players that. The consolation for anyone not playing in the final is to be on the bench, because they do feel part of it. I just hope that, at some point in the Champions League, they extend the substitutes’ bench to 11 players as they do in World Cup games. That would be justified in a final. The dilemma I have should be taken from me."

Sir Alex, of course, has had to make such difficult decisions many times before. But he admits that "it doesn’t get any easier with time.

"If anything it becomes more difficult," he says. "This team is starting to blend together and mature. So you get to know the players better and therefore they know that they’ve contributed a lot to the season. To be told by me that they’re being left out, no matter what I say, doesn’t resonate with them."

Travelling squad
(Goalkeepers) Van der Sar, Kuszczak, Heaton (Defenders) Ferdinand, Vidic, Evra, Brown, Neville, O'Shea, Silvestre, Pique (Midfielders) Scholes, Carrick, Giggs, Hargreaves, Anderson, Fletcher, Park, Nani (Forwards) Ronaldo, Rooney, Tevez, Saha, Welbeck.

Couldnt of been a worse 2 teams for me to have to watch in this one.

I hate Manchester Utd, i wont go into reasons but being a Stoke fan should make it self explanitory enough.

I do however prefer to see all cups stay north, of our great north south divide. Not only that i feel as if anything Chelski win, they have bought and so really not all that good.

Difficult one, can i go for the draw, no ok then, if i have to i want Man Utd to win it, i feel dirty saying that now though.

You could say that yes Zhinkler.

Well thanks to our own, apparently parade worthy season i get to mix with the great and good of the premiership next season. I cant see it lasting longer than one year but its going to be nice while it lasts.

As a Liverpool fan I hope Chelsea win. Utd have already caught us up in the league so I dont want the same for europe.

I'd replace nani with tevez. Although he is a good player his final ball at crucial times is not up to scratch and he can be very selfish. Being the final i think he may 'overdo' things and try too hard to impress. Too much of a risk in this game.
