United Made History - AGAIN

Manchester United are through to the semi-finals of the Champions League after doing what seemed close to impossible: won at Estadio Dragao, home of FC Porto.

Truth be told, it wasn't vintage United. Or it was: vintage United 2009. A few moments of true brilliance but for most of the game it was a dogged, well-organised defending, combined with the intention of playing possession football which we did quite well for 70 minutes.

Reminded me so much of Barcelona at home last season. Brilliant goal, brilliant defensive display by every player - equaliser would take opposition through but ultimately fairly comfortable. Exceptional goal from Ronaldo; Rooney tremendously hard working and brilliant down the wing; hopefully will lift us for the rest of the season.
