'If It's Football, It's Vital'

United v Inter - Fergie v Mourinho

Well, we were handed the toughest possible opponent for the 1st knockout round of the Champions League: out of Atletico Madrid, Lyon, Sporting, Real Madrid and Inter, we got the Italian champions.

Jose Mourinho returns to Old Trafford then and the stakes are high. Internazionale Milano haven't won the competition since 1965 and are desperate to end that drought while United must hope they won't fall to the 'Holders' Curse' - in the last four seasons, the reigning European Champions fell at the last 16 EACH TIME.

First leg will be played on February 24/25, return leg on March 10/11. The first game of the tie will be at San Siro and the second leg will be played at Old Trafford - an important advantage.

The full draw:

It bothers me to say it but you can get past Inter Milan. JM is a clever manager and knows how to play you, but Inter have glaring lapses of concentration and they still rely heavily on the oft-injured but brilliant Ibrahimovic. The result depends on which Man Utd bothers to show up, of course, but Inter aren't as tough as they seem. The Italian league isn't as good as it once was. I watch it every week and it doesn't compare to England.

Radio, get back to our forums! :D Anyway, JM is an amazing tactician and will be a tough obstacle. I cant wait to see it! The very thought gets my mouth watering! :D I fancy you fellas to go thorough, though, given Inter's european record.

The second leg at home is huge advantage for us and we should win at home! All we have to do now is get a good result away and I'm sure we can. Berbatov's unpredictability will really help us in Europe as many defenders don't know how to deal with him.

Tiny T, I don't know what team you support, but United have as good a chance as any to get through. After all, we're not the reigning Champions of England, Europe (and the World) for nothing :)
