Michael Ballack's unique treble

Premier League runners-up medal, Champions League runners-up medal, European Championship runners-up medal. Well done Michael. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Just because I can't resist, here is the post I wrote at the beginning of the tournament predicting that Spain would win (and making fun of the Guardian's prediction of the Netherlands):

Viva Espagna!

Player of the tournament? It was Senna for me.

Post script: Did anyone else enjoy Marcel Desailly's analysis at half-time on the BBC? He suggested that a Spanish side that had almost completely dominated the first half with a superbly accomplished footballing display weren't playing with personality and that Aragones should take off a midfielder and bring on another forward. It was insane. I hope for the sake of my licence fee that he is on a very short-term contract. Another (former) Chelsea player you will note.
