Man Utd manager Sir Alex Ferguson reckons he's come up with the perfect way to beat Barca in the Champions League Final at the end of May.

Realising that players such as Carrick, O'Shea and Fabio would be ripped to shreds if the Old Trafford side tried to play an expansive game against Pep Guardiola's superstars at Wembley, the wily old fox that is Fergie has sprung a surprise.

Today he named the team to take on the Catalan giants - and its Stoke City.

Sir Alex has taken advantage of a little known loophole in UEFA's regulations to sign the whole of Tony Pulis' side for the weekend of the Final.

The Man Utd boss has calculated that he stands a much better chance of defeating the Spanish geniuses by playing the kick-and-rush,long throw game perfected by the men from the Potteries.

Robert Huth, Danny Higgenbotham and Ryan Shawcross will kick lumps out of Messi and co, then launch the ball forward for Kenwyne Jones to get on the end of or Rory Delap will propel the long throws into the box and cause suitable havoc.

Fergie is positive that Barca will be bludgeoned into submission by these tactics and victory will be his.

And who would bet against him ?
