United 4 - 0 Milan

Neville(Rafael) Rio Vidic Evra
Valencia Park Scholes(Gibson) Fletcher Nani

What a performance by United!! Absolutely stunning! Wayne Rooney scored a brace, Park put the game beyond Milan's reach with a fine finish and Fletcher headed a superb cross by Rafael late in the game. United seem to have a habit of humiliating Italian clubs at Old Trafford. Remember Inter last year and the 7-1 win over Roma? I love it! :)

Milan did spurn a couple of chances today, but this Milan side is a far cry from the Milan side which trashed us 3 years ago. The Rossoneri are an ageing side and they couldn't keep up with United's determination. Every player gave his 100%, yes, even frustrating players like Nani. Nani's first half was quite poor but he was amazing during the second. He managed an assist and a couple of other fine crosses. Park and Fletcher where everywhere. I guess those two were the difference between United and Milan. Neville nearly scored a goal and produced an assist, he even won the battle vs Ronaldinho!

Our defence was rock solid although Evra was troubled a bit by Milan's long balls. Thankfully their strikers were wasteful in front of goal. Beckham, who was given a tremendous reception, had the most threatening shot from the Milan players. Speaking of Beckham, when leaving the pitch, he wore the Green and Gold scarf which shows that he, as a United supporter, wants Glazer out too!

Anyway we're through to the quarter finals and I'm quite pleased with that. Now, we must put the European scene aside and concentrate on our domestic battle. Our next match is vs Fulham and I expect a win.
