Update: Man Utd 0 – 1 AC Milan
Thanks to another howler from goalkeeper Roy Carroll, AC Milan won their first game on english soil in over 20 years. What should have been a routine save from a fairly timid shot, Carroll spilled the ball and Crespo put it in the back of the net.
Overall, United didn’t play well at all. Even with a five man midfield, Utd failed to dominate the centre of the pitch and with Rooney up front on his own, made very little impact on the game. Ruud came on with 30 minutes to go but because he was back from a 3 month injury, he too failed to make much of an impact.
It’s certainly going to be an uphill battle in the second leg!
Big game for Man Utd tonight! I hope Van the Man makes his return. We could do with him up front. Not that Rooney isn’t doing a good job at the moment. He is, but you can’t not be impressed with Ruud’s european goal scoring record.
I hope Sir Alex doesn’t decide to play the likes of Quinten Fortune or Phil Neville. We’ll need all the big players (like Giggs, Scholes, Keane, Ronaldo) tonight. Let’s make sure we have enough goals under our belt for when we have to go to the San Siro.
Good luck Man Utd !!
