United Keep Breaking Records

United Keep Breaking Records

No matter what happens in Rome on May 27, this is another historic season for Manchester United, during which we set so many new records that they're difficult to count.

The clean sheet sequence thing has been done to death, of course, indeed, it's already forgotten amid other achievements. United are the first British team to have won at Porto's stadium. We are now unbeaten in 25 games in the Champions League, streets ahead of the old record.

United are the first side to achieve home-and-away victories in the Champions League semi-final since 2001 when Bayern Munich knocked Real Madrid out. That very same season was when Valencia got into the final for the second time in a row, the last side to have managed such a feat before United's magnificent victory at the Emirates Stadium.

There's only one significant record to be broken now: that the holders of the Champions League never managed to retain their crown before. Arrigo Sacchi's Milan, when the old format of the competition was in place, were the last side who managed the feat.

Even if we don't retain it, the boys can be pround that they gave it one hell of a go! Seriously, fighting for SEVEN trophies in one season and almost winning them all is incredible! It may not be as prestigious as "THE TREBLE" but considering how much more effort has been involved this season the lads have done extremely well. Lets hope it gets better from here!

tuscan3000, agree, agree agree. Brilliant display over the two legs, thoroughly deserved; everyone played so well. Ironically, we got the score that would have taken Arsenal through. And how funny - actually turned out to be our easiest tie - of all the teams we've played (including group stage) this season, each has taken at least two points off us. First 7 minutes I worried it might be a tighter tie, but after that Arsenal went home. Devastated for Fletcher though. On to Rome.
