Alex Ferguson appreciated the lateness of Bayern's victory

Trap and Tardelli were ogling silverware tonight too.

WE LOVE A game of Where’s Wally as much as the next football fan.

But even a seasoned Wally-spotter such as ourselves couldn’t help but chuckle a bit on seeing Alex Ferguson’s wee head lean in from behind the extremely tall David Gill to get one last look at the big-eared trophy.

Look at his eyes light up as the “Typical Germans” lift the biggest prize in European football.

He’s not jealous at all.


And on another broadcasting network we spied another septuagenarian with fond memories of nights like this. Oh, and Giovanni Trapattoni was there with Marco Tardelli.

Who ever will pop up next?
