As the Red Army invades Russia painting the air red from Manchester all the way to Moscow. Red and Blue fans landing in different airports and then queuing for hours to check-in to the hotels. Keeping the two supporter groups separate is always going to be a logistical nightmare, though with no reported problems and a warm and joyous mood in the Red Square in Russia this is going to be a loud and joyous match. British police support is present in Russia to assist the Russians with possible trouble makers and overseeing control of the two fan camps.

Ashley Cole being the latest injury from the Chelsea camp after hurting his ankle in a training session. Apart from that the teams are at full strength and ready for the big finale tonight.

Reportedly still some tickets kicking about for the final, though with a shortage of sleeping quarters in Moscow the uptake on these is slow. Manchester Airport is a sea of Red as those who are still leaving prepare for the flight and the mood is enthusiastic with a majority agreeing with my prediction of 2-1 to United. Drogba or Ronaldo being the most likely to score first.

GMTV reporting that advertising for tonight’s match is in the region of £400000 per minute. I intend meeting up with some of our United fans tonight and watching the match on ITV from 7, though we will meet long before that to prepare and watch every minute of the build up.

Keep yourself posted here for updates tonight!
