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.
Tactics were strange - but more about them later. Now we should focus on the fact that despite all the problems, injuries, poor form, United are top of the league, in the semi-final of the Champions League and the FA Cup and already have two trophies in the bag. Also we are the first British club ever to achieve a win at Porto. That is quite a result!
Oh, and we quite possibly produced the biggest goal of the Champions League season. Even Ronaldo hardly believed that shot...
