NEW MANU KIT: RTC EXCLUSIVE!
Here we have RTC's very own John O'Toole modeling Manchester United's new goalkeeper's Kit. Nike has been keeping this under wraps for a while, but even in this raw image we can see some of the enhancement’s they made:
Extra shoulder padding.
Front grill belly guard.
An un-named Nike source said, on the condition of anonymity, ”It’s going to be like parking a freeking bus in front of goal! Sweeeeeet! Guh-guh-guh!” Apparently Nike are exploiting advanced composite technologies used in NASCAR to make this new kit. Hat tip to United and Nike for pushing the envelope once again. I think we can all agree, we’ve never seen a kit that captures the spirit of Manu so well.

Hey Jens Lehmann
I feel for Arsenal. A final vs. Barca (and make no mistake, this years team is an excellent vintage - they will certainly be remembered as greats) is hard enough without playing 70 mins with 10 men and your second string goalie. Barca weren't the breathtaking force that I thought they'd be - although if this is due to arsenals discipline or them misfiring I can't say.
I disagree with Johno that 'this was arsenals big chance' - they've got to the final, which they've never done before - surely progress on the path to winning it. They help the whole league out - by being finalists they keep our national coefficient high and safeguard our 4 CL places for years to come.
I thought Henry could have been more gracious in defeat, but then again I’d be bitter too. His comments about not seeing anything from Ronnie are true, but not very sporting. Noteworthy factoids:
First ever CL final Red card Lowest ever possession from a team in the CL final (or highest ever, if you flip it) Rijkaard joins an elite list who have both played in and managed a team that has won the CL. (Stevie G is next) Now the big question is, will Henry stay? If he doesn’t, what does that do to Arsenal?
