Former Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher: "Watching Barcelona is liking watching our top teams but with the fast forward button pressed down permanently."

Will Carrick: Wandering the streets of Sydney still loving our win! Bed can wait!!!
Chelsea secured their fourth Premier League title by beating Crystal Palace 1-0 on 3 May. They will be joined in the Champions League group stage by Manchester City and Arsenal, while fourth-placed Manchester United will enter the preceding play-off round.
Tottenham qualified for the Europa League by virtue of their fifth-place finish, and they will be joined by Liverpool, whose sixth-place finish means they inherit the Europa League slot awarded to Capital One Cup winners Chelsea. They go straight into the group stages.
Seventh-placed Southampton take the third Europa League slot after Arsenal's FA Cup victory over Aston Villa. They enter the competition in the third qualifying round.
England was also granted an extra Europa League place as one of the top three countries in Uefa's Respect Fair Play league - which goes to West Ham, who will enter the first qualifying round in early July after topping the Premier League's fair play table.

"We did it again!" is Mesut Ozil's simple but eloquent twitter message. I was trying to decipher what the tattoo on Ozil's shoulder is during these celebrations.
It's either a massive, off-blue owl, or someone lifting the World Cup trophy.

Aston Villa captain Fabain Delph: "Arsenal showed why they deserved the win. We were up against it, we tried to dig deep but their quality shone through and we struggled.
"Arsenal will admit that's one of their best performances of the season. We didn't impose ourselves as much as we can do but they kept the ball well and tired us out.
"The manager said that we had it in us to cause an upset but we couldn't find the performance. But a few weeks ago we would have snapped your hand off to stay in the league and get to this final. Now it's important that we get a winning mentality.
"We have to forget about today, some players will come through the door to strengthen us and I am sure we will get better and better."
It's only 18 days until next season's fixtures are released. Give us a break!
It was a busy few seconds, never mind months.
Tim Sherwood has just said:" Some of the boys have been told they will not be here next year and they can go and find other clubs."
Overall you'd have to say that Tim Sherwood's stint in charge of Aston Villa has been a success.
But he spoke about rebuilding the team, and with question marks over the future of Christian Benteke, Ron Vlaar, and even the owner, it could be a very busy few months ahead.
More from Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood: "It's been a gradual process since I've come in here. We've stayed in the division, but we came up short today because Arsenal were better. We have a losing mentality at this football club. They've been scraping relegation for the past four years, that can't be right.
"We need to try and change that, either by bringing in new personnel or making these players winners. It's not just new additions to the squad also getting some of the players we do have to play in a different way, to change the mentality of a few of them.
"We gave the fans nothing to cheer about today but I can promise them it will get better. We don't want to be scraping relegation next season."
Aston Villa manager Tim Sherwood: "I can't make any excuses for that today, Arsenal were too good for us. We couldn't impose ourselves on them or nullify what they had. They've got some outstanding footballers and too much quality for us.
"When you've had your entire midfield booked and your right-back, obviously you're walking a tight-rope. It's a learning curve for us, you have to learn and we need to build a new team. They need to learn how to be winners. Of course we believed we could win this but you have to say we came up short today.
"Alexis Sanchez scores an outstanding goal, there's not much you can do about that one, but we were lucky not go behind earlier, we were holding on a bit. But to concede again from a set piece is gruelling. You almost don't mind if they open you up but to be honest you have to take your medicine at 3-0 and then to concede one at the death was a kick in the privates."
Pundit wars on the Wembley pitch as Steve McManaman, Ian Wright, Andy Townsend, Phil Neville, Danny Murphy and Dan Walker converge on the pitch.
The off-air consensus is that Villa failed to turn up and it was a shame with regards to to the spectacle. That, and Danny Murphy's ever-improving golf handicap.
The Arsenal players have posed for the 'changing room, tops off, trophy out' photo as Ivan Gazidis makes a brief speech.
Robert Pires is in the changing room too. For old time's sake.
Arsenal goalscorer Olivier Giroud: "The Premier League title is the target. Hopefully we will be there. Without the injuries and if we keep this squad with one or two more players then we will have a good chance to challenge for the title."
Arsenal club captain Mikel Arteta, who missed the game through injury: "There is no better way to of finish the season. We have made history today, the *most successful team in England. Now we go for the big one next season and hopefully more trophies will come. We have great momentum."
*Arsenal have won 12 FA Cups - more than anyone else.

Tim Sherwood was locked in the dressing room with his Villa side for a long time after the final whistle but he's out now to face the cameras.
"They need to learn to be winners" he says. He looks utterly disappointed and perplexed. He's very honest, as usual.
Full reaction to come.
The Arsenal end remains full as the fans celebrate. Olivier Giroud is the latest to peddle the 'we will win the title next year' line.
Arsenal's win this afternoon means that Southampton are confirmed as being in the Europa League next season.
Former Arsenal and Aston Villa defender on MOTD
"Last time Arsenal won the FA Cup back-to-back in 2003 they went on to go unbeaten in the league the following season."
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the domestic season wrapped up.
Just the Champions League final, Women's World Cup, Copa America, Under-21 championship, European qualifiers, pre-season friendlies, signings, and weeks and weeks of speculation to come...
The Aston Villa end is completely empty. And anybody with a smart remark about that must not have been in that scenario.
Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker: "We deserved this today. We played on the front foot from the start and that makes a massive difference.
"Last year we suffered in the first-half but today we scored regularly and gave we what we needed.
"It is a good way to finish off the season and I can look forward to my first holiday since retiring from international football. Hopefully we will start next season on the front foot but first we celebrate this victory."
Prince William does his best to look pleased as Arsenal take the Cup from him. Per Mertesacker and Mikel Arteta link hands to lift the famous old trophy - the foot-and-a-half height difference causes some problems but the trophy is aloft!
Alexis Sanchez flies the Chile flag over the Royal Box.
Here come the Arsenal players up the steps. Injured captain Mikel Arteta has done a John Terry and is up there in full kit.
Arsenal's man of the match Santi Cazorla: "We played very well, we played with intensity and if we play like that we will get the title next year."
"We are lucky Alexis Sanchez plays for us."
Arsenal have joined Wanderers, Blackburn Rovers and Tottenham in retaining the FA Cup on multiple occasions.

Former Aston Villa striker
"Aston Villa were not good enough. They gave the ball away, they looked tired, leggy and all over the place.
"Fans had so much hope, came in their droves but Villa's players did not turn up, they did not handle the occasion or quality of Arsenal."
The Arsenal players have obviously had a team meeting. The 'we will try and win the title next year' message is hitting home hard and fast.
BBC Radio 5 live
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey tells BBC 5 Live: "It's a great feeling. We really wanted this one. Winning back-to-back FA Cups is not an easy thing to do and we have done it. Now we can look forward to next season and kick on and give it a real go in the Premier League."
What next for this man? Not usually short of words, Tim Sherwood must come out firing after that.
The Villa players go up to collect the medals nobody wants...
The officials go up the steps to collect their keepsakes. Referee Jon Moss gets some grief from the Villa end.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "We have shown that we are a real team and can deal with pressure. I congratulate the players, the staff and the fans. We are so happy tonight.
"I had a difficult week to pick the team. But when confidence and sprit is so good it helps. Look, I am very proud. Our club is doing well and if I can personally do well then it's even better.
"I have two more years of my contract and my hunger is great. I want to do well."
