Champions League review: AC Milan 3-0 Man Utd

74051816.jpgWell that was a let-down for all Man U fans and fans of English football in general. Milan stormed out of the blocks and never let the visitors settle – fair play to them, they played the perfect match. Edwin van der Sar made a couple of great saves, but I can’t think of one United outfield player who did himself justice. Rooney and Ronaldo failed to dazzle in attack, whilst United’s midfield was made to look horribly lightweight by Pirlo, Seedorf and man-of-the-match Gattuso (he could have been MotM five times over). Nemanja Vidic was a long way short of match fitness and Rio Ferdinand’s composure was sorely missed, as was the energy and drive of Gary Neville; Wes Brown and John O’Shea are unconvincing deputies.
United’s 4-5-1 formation never seems to work and it certainly didn’t last night. I’ve rarely seen a United team create so few decent chances. Click below to watch the key action from the match…

    classic case of plain and simple, Gattuso and Milan wanted it more.
    We really need to sort the premier league out as well. Milan had all their players at the top of their game, united’s players that were at match fitness were obviously exhausted.
    I’d have it down to 18 teams and a winter break. Let’s be honest – the premier league would have been no worse off in terms of entertainment without watford and charlton this season.
    A side note – can someone tell the Italian fans that just whistling is atrocious banter? And also, to Gattuso – either get some pompoms or shut the hell up! Sorry, bitter united fan coming out there.

    Kaka was on fire this season, and i do not blame it as a bad play from MANCHESTER UNTD. Yet all I can say, “The cup belongs to AC MILAN”. MORE DETAILS ON AC MILAN
