It's not really our thing to show open support for any specific club, but we here at KP have a real soft spot for FC Barcelona. As a football business they tend to run counter to the prevailing model for big clubs and emphasise community, fair play and youth development in their culture, often over profits and economic bottom lines.
The European Championship final was in some ways, therefore, a contest between the big business and limited ownership approach of Man Utd and Barca's more integrated, community-based and socially conscious model.
I know which one I prefer.
So, big congrats to all at Barca for a fine achievement, managed in the best spirit of the game and in the interests of football fans the world over.
Perhaps they will inspire other big teams to adopt their joyful and soulful approach to the beautiful game.
