Roma 1 - 1 United

To be honest I expected a loss, especially when I saw the team line up. It was a team full of second string players apart from Rooney, Carrick & Nani with the latter doing exceptionally well. I'm not in the mood of writing any reports tonight. United got their noses in front thanks to Pique's header, his 2nd goal in 2 matches. Pretty good for a fullback.

United dominated the first half and I was surprised with this performance especially given the fact that Roma had most of their first teamers playing. But in the second half Roma could have scored 3 times should they have been more clinical in their finishes. It was Mancini who spared their blushes with a sublime goal. A goal the Italian commentator kept hailing for the remaining 15 minutes. Bloody Italian commentators, I just hate them!

This draw caps off a good champions league first round in which we only lost 2 points from 18. Our away form has been good in contrast to the last couple of seasons and that is a good sign for the future. We'll just wait a see who we'll face in the second round, I'm sure that we're capable of beating any team.

Our next hurdle, a huge hurdle in this case, is Liverpool. Next Sunday every football fan especially English football fans will stick to their Tv sets and watch this match as well as Arsenal vs Chelsea. Lately we've been doing well in the league against the Mersysiders, I don't know wot to expect, such matches are usually full of surprises.

Soooo Come On You Reds[Devils]!
