Manchester United vs. Barcelona

May 28, 2011 (if this date is wrong, I'm sorry - going off the top of my head, so it's close, but might not be the actual date)

Man U has been in great form recently and I've been a huge fan since I was old enough to really watch and understand Soccer/Football.

Barcelona seems to be the better team though, with a very strong midfield.

Thoughts on how the match will turn out?

I am a huge ManU fan and have been forever. I was born just outside Manchester and visited Old Trafford many times before moving to Canada. I would hope that they will prevail in that match but Barca is not an easy team to play against.

I'm rooting for Barcelona. They got some stupid players like Busquets and Pedro, but I love the play style and precision in their game. And of course, Messi is exceptional.

United is a tough team to beat, that's for sure. They don't have as many of the experienced superstars they had a couple of years ago, but Ferguson is a really good coach and has really got the team going good. Hopefully it will be an entertaining match.

I would definitely prefer Barcelona to win. Not much of a fan of either, but much more Barcelona than ManU.

I think the game will end up being Barcelona vs. Fergie.

As has been said, Man U is not the better team in the competition. We don't have a lot of big names. We have a few guys who are in great shape right now and one of the best coaches of the modern era, and that is the game that Man U will play in the final I think.

I think it will be interesting to see how Fergie plays the boys against Barca.

Honestly, I believe that so long as Scholes stays on the bench, we'll be okay.

Wouldn't Chelsea be more like the Yankees? They're the right color and buy all their players, just like the Yanks...

Both are close. Both buy the most expensive players and hope to god they play well together :P     Besides, Man U are actually OWNED by the people who own the yankees lol. Chelsea are just trying to hard to catch up to MU in how much money is wasted and the amount of pompous brats on the field. I was quite happy to see Torres absolutely fail for a few months until he at least scored 1 goal :P I mean the final is essentially the UK Yankees vs the Spanish Yankees as they both have a pension for doing it. Barca I think is just more famous for outright buying expensive people :P

That's about what I was thinking it would be. If Barca win, it won't be a rout IMO. I would be very surprised if Man U won flat out and not by PKs or something.

Nice to see some United fans on here.

I think United will win. 2-0. Rio and Vidic at the back. There is nothing Messi can do to fool those two. They are the 2 most solid full backs in the game.

Hernandez and park will score

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
