Only in Europe: Man U, Chelsea battle in Moscow

Which is pretty ironic that the Champions League was decided in Russia, given the recent influx of Russian owners of about 25% of the Mayfair section of London and of teams like Chelsea and Portsmouth. At any rate, Man U (owned by Americans) and Chelsea (owned by oligarch Roman Abramowich) battled in Moscow yesterday, with Man U winning a bloody match on penalty kicks.

You can read all about it here.

The match report leaves me with only one question: If Cristiano Ronaldo, the Portguese native who plays for Manchester United, isn't the best soccer player in the world at the moment, who is?

Lionel Messi. If he had been fit, one could argue that Barcelona would have made it to the finals and won La Liga.
