Ok why are Utd fans and the commentators all acting like Utd are already through to the final

You have a one goal lead, Milan still have 2 away goals, and I have little doubt that Milan will score at home...its still very 50-50

Very true. I'm not a united supporter but clive tysdley last night was going ballistic about man united and all the papers this morning have been about how rooney got one over kaka.

United played really well in the last half an hour but everyone seems to have forgotten that perhaps the main reason for this was gattuso going off injured not long after the second half started. Carrick was his usual anonymous self until gattuso went off and finally him and scholes had space in midfield to pass it about instead of having gattuso snapping at their heels and being in their faces all the time.

Milan are still very much in the tie, esp with 2 away goals. I still have a hunch united will win even if their last performance in Italy wasn't exactly inspiring.

Too bad you can't watch the matches on RTE the Irish national station...the guys on our panel absolutely lay into teams and players...they all hate Ronaldo, especially Eamon Dunphy and Liam Brady...always good for a bit of craic.

Best sports panel on the planet, no bias, even when the English are playing, except when England are playing crap they do enjoy it a bit

But anyway it allows me to escape overzealous Utd supporters and English commentator bias.

Really not sure how Rooney got one over Kaka Wasn't the match billed as Ronaldo versus Kaka? That was forgotten about quick enough......

And since when has conceding 2 away goals been considered a great victory?

Yeah i saw a video on youtube of Eamon Dunphy talking about how Steven Gerrard got "found out" against PSV the other week in the 2nd leg

He's completely wrong but it is funny to have somebody who says what he thinks as opposed to the monkeys in the studio's we have to watch where every english team can do no wrong.

I suspect in the next leg milan will probably try to score 1 goal and then defend that lead. It's never easy to score against Italian teams in their own back yard but if any team can then it's man united.

My thoughts exactly. I feel like the only person who doubts we'll go through...

i dont know why, but utd came back very well in the 2nd half. it does seem like the momentum switched back to utd with the last minute goal.

either side can go through for sure, but im fairly confident utd can get the job done in italy. juve 99 anyone?

There's your answer

If gattuso is out for next weeks game too then united will have a better chance of progressing, no doubt.

by the way... forgive me for stating the obvious, but wow were rooney's goals important or what. even a 2-2 tie would have been devestating going to italy.

hmm...don't really know about that. of course it's a better result, but if it had been a draw, united would have been forced to attack in italy, which is what they're best at. now that they've won, ferguson may be tempted to play a defensive game in italy, which might be dangerous.

wasn't the case vs. Roma.

I dont' think he'll do anything differently than what he did in the 2nd half. They need to attack and get goals early. Do not allow for any momentum to build. Only doubt.

All I'm saying is ....never count out the Italians, especially Milan.
