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

Giggs Is The Special One

Another footballing masterclass from the aging magician known as Ryan Giggs. The Welshman was influential at the San Siro and brilliant yesterday night as United beat Inter 2-0 to book their place in the last 8 of the Champions League.

Though Fergie criticised Giggs' first-half performance after the game, he cannot fail to have been impressed by the overall quality of this display - and even in the first half Giggs was our most dangerous player by far. The perfect corner was one thing but his dribbling and bursts of pace (!!) caused huge discomfort for Inter.

It was, of course, Giggs' run that created space for Ronaldo before the second goal which sealed our place in the quarter-final. He relished the space afforded to him, the fear he instilled by dribbling through central midfielders who simply could not live with him. It was all so reminiscent of Ballack, Mikel, Deco, Lampard and co...

At 35 Giggs is a marvel, having won everything in club football he's still yearning for more. His career only is enough proof of Fergie's managerial greatness. Giggs was average throughout the autumn (some excellent games like Everton and Blackburn away aside) but he's been resurrected again and is now a key figure of our push for trophies.

The so-called Special One watched with grim face yesterday night as the real Special One tore them apart. What a shame that we won't be able to savour his football for another decade...
