The best of 2011
An incredible twelve months of football. Moments of glory, madness, insanity, genius and plain ugly was witnessed by millions. And that was just for Mario Balotelli.
Of course, speaking of glory, a mention must go to Barcelona. It's no secret of my long-time admiration for the Catalan club. I've been to three games in the Camp Nou this season (including one Clásico), but watching them completely outclass Manchester United in the Champions League final last May was so good, it made me feel absolutely no guilt for skipping the speeches at my sister's wedding that same day. Sheer brilliance. Sorry, sis.
