    Looks like we had 16 shots (and more shots on goal). I see that Gianluca Curci played in goal and had a fine match. Curci is one of several native Romans in the side, something which (I think) is pretty rare these days, especially with big clubs. How many native Milanos play for Inter do you think? [​IMG]

    Zero!

    There is talk that Totti is injured,I don't know if its smoke and mirrors or if he is actually injured.But we will find out in 11 hours.[​IMG]

    http://www.myp2p.eu/Weekdays.htm For those of us with no TV coverage.
    Brilliant, thanks. FYI, it's appears to be the very last link on both pages that works - the French feed for Chelsea/Valencia and the Spanish for United/Roma. Go to the very bottom row on either page, and click the very last in the long line of PLAY or PLAY or PLAY etc. lists. And crafty strike by Carrick. Oh my...Smith, then Rooney. Decided that was done and flipped in time to see the fantastic goal from Morientes...what an expert touch...

    Yeah, bloody murder at Old Trafford.

    Not exactly pretty, but an opportunistic equalizer from Shevchenko. It'll be an interesting 40 minutes...

    you're right, the valencia - chelsea game is now the match to follow
    all tied up
    each with an away goal
    will be an interesting ending indeed

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Bloody feckin' annihilated we were. I had to leave after Carrick's second postage-stamp - I suppose they could score another 4 before full time. Congrats to Utd. - they certainly did the job today [​IMG]

    Fantastic winner by Essien - they always find a way, don't they?

    One of those always works. When it quits, start going through them again until you find another that works.

    Just got in from the game now,what a truly incredible performance.The atmosphere in the ground was phenomenal.I am so happy we have shown all Europe what we are capable of(especially without Scholes,Vidic,Neville and Saha).I know Roma can play much,much better but 7-1 is still awesome.

    Saw a few scuffles on the way in and outside the ground the atmosphere was volatile and nasty,probably the worst I have ever seen.The Roma fans are only just leaving as we speak so hopefully that will rule out any more trouble.

    Back to the pitch,the performances of the unsung heroes(Smith,Fletcher,O'Shea etc..)was perfect but again Ronaldo proved to me that he currently has no equal anywhere in the world.[​IMG]

    Pathetic. Beyond the obvious technical superiority of Man U. I am surprised that Spalletti, who is a very smart manager, could make such enormous tactical errors. Who was covering the wings? Where was the man marking on Ronaldo? Roma were over confident and thought they could open it up.....but fell right into Ferguson's trap.
