  • You have no idea how many people woke up this morning and smiled when they saw that result last night. I hope you go all the way.

    • Everyone hates man u but speaking as a man u fan can i say well done you deserved it you played like we did when we won the champions league .I hope you can now go all the way and that result will kickstart your season you look to good to be where you are ...............steve

    • I was so shocked with the result. Unfortunatley, living in the states I couldn't see or hear the game, had to contend with watching the live match stats from the BBC website. I am extatic over the result. This should put some confidence in the lads to get some wins in the league and prevent relagation.

      • Totally agree, they should get on a roll now. If they can beat Rooney and Ronaldo then they can beat anyone!

        We must keep Freddy though. He is so often on the scoresheet saving our necks and there are bound to be some tempting offers in January. I would understand though if he was sold. £5m is being touted at the moment and that would get us some good additions which we really need. We do need him though and I would suggest keeping him until the end of the season if we can.

        Having said that we must have got a few quid on the ticket sales and TV rights last night and who knows who we'll get in the next draw! If we're away to Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea or Newcastle then the gate reciepts will be massive!

        Anyway the fact is we won, fair and square against a team that on paper should have crushed us into the dirt by half time. Even Fergie had no complaints. A fantastic result lads, let's keep it going!!

        Onto the semi finals!!!!!!!!!!
