Onyewu would have done something about Rooney… He’ll be the trump card then in SA
Own goals and Scholes’s standing ankle. Un-*&*^ing-believable. Yeah, Rooney’s great. But they’ve been lucky, lucky, lucky this year.
Hi FIVE To YOU JAMIE Z.
I’m thinking it might not matter. As long as United tie at the very least, it’s going to be hard for AC to muster up anything.
3 away goals are gold for Man U.
It seems to have worked out though, as Fletcher was tenacious and sent in that excellent ball from the left to Rooney for the second goal.
Seems like a bogus second caution and subsequent sending off. Just let that go. He blew the whistle 45 seconds later!
Thank you, Ives. That worked very well.
united won’t have carrick for the second leg
WOW! Carrick sent off!!! It must have been for some sort of lip he gave the referee because Evra was the man who made the challenge
*not* on the wing….that’s what I get for having both eyes on the TV while typing
Seedorf has been excellent with his touch, vision, awareness, and quick decision making.
Fletcher started out left and Park started in the middle. An odd choice by SAF I thought, have never seen Park no on the wing.
Wow, Nesta heads the corner WIDE…
Something has been thrown on the field and van der Sar is using it to waste time. Substitution. Wes Brown on.
Grella and Cooper both on for their teams…nothing of note so far.
Barry answers for City! Great day of football.
That was a nice little touch by Seedorf…hasnt lost his skill with his age.
So Rooney was alone up top, and I understand the back line, but were Park and Nani out wide or has Fletcher been out wide left because that’s where I keep seeing him popping up.
OH! 3-2! Seedorf with an excellent back heel off a creative pass from Ronaldinho. Game on!
ridiculous goal by seedorf
It was a 4-5-1
Rafael, Evans, Ferdinand, Evra, Carrick Scholes, Park, Fletcher, Nani, Rooney
Goal, Stoke! Thanks for the help, mates!

Can someone tell me what lineup and formation United started with?
I never have liked Dida and the milan defence is awful.
3-1. What a turn of events. Did Milan tire or did United wake up?
I’m watching. Real Madrid are the only team I’ll watch for a chance to see them lose.
GOAL! UNITED!!!! ROONEY HAS A SECOND!!! WHAT a ball by Darren Fletcher! Serves it in brilliantly from the left hand channel and Rooney nods it home. 3-1 United.
BEAutiful goal! I bet Nani isn’t too happy Valencia comes right on and assists the go ahead
probably no goal if gooch is playing
GOAL! UNITED! ROONEY HAS IT!
As soon as the cross went up, you knew Rooney would nod it home.
am i the only person who believe that this referee is terrible biased for united?
how did he not call that handball, it was 5 feet in front of him
what a sensational shot! that would have been the goal of the month
Goal! for Lyon by Makoun a blast from oustide the box in the 47th minute.
Agreed. He’s a coach’s player, who’s skilled enough, and busts his butt. The perfect complement to Man U’s skillful stars.
does it drain battery significantly?
milan need to put away their chances
“cr-cr-cr-cracking one at Casillas”
Rooney’s a hairy beast.
Hey folks, if you need a stream to watch Milan-Man Utd, here is a free livestream: http://tinyurl.com/yz7ms9g
It’s free so it shouldn’t be shut down.
He’s been struggling with a hamstring.
This game is going to slowly turn in Manure favor all because the ben gaye is going to start wearing off for the Milan players. Sucha pity they started so well.
Anyone know why Antonini was subbed?
there’s a good veetle stream i’m on now. myp2p dot eu and then look for danish delight
All square!! haha.
fantastic accidental goal from Scholes. he swings his right foot, misses, and it bounces off his left into the Milan goal
