Milan were world class tonight. Gave man united a footballing lesson. Gattuso was everywhere. Uniteds big players didn't deliver and Milan passed it about brilliantly.

Was looking forward to a liverpool - united final but nevertheless.

If milan play like that against liverpool then 'pool haven't got a hope in hell.

Seedorf I thought was particularly great tonight...Great quote from Eamon Dunphy tonight on RTE- 'Reality is Kaka, hype is Ronaldo'

How I love that man

Gattuso bossed Ronaldo.

i thought united would come out all guns blazing in the 2nd half but they didn't.

can't believe also that fergie took that long to bring on a sub.

Didn't see the 2nd half of the match...did Cristina cry?

Just kidding, now this final is much more exciting than an all English one, gotta admit.

If i was a united fan i wouldn't be too dissapointed. Out of europe but with the league all but won and in the FA Cup final they have still had the kind of season supporters of other clubs can only dream about.

Now I'm a Man U fan right? But when you put Ronaldo up against someone like Gattuso, it really puts the title "best player in the world" in context.

I'm not saying Gattuso is the best player in the world. I'm saying that the best player in the world would have found a way to help his club. Cristiano did not.

The main thing however was the amount of times we just decided to give the ball away. It seemed any time we got in some sort of passing rhythem, it was short lived and ended in the control of Milan. Credit them for that, but also credit them for scoring first so they could pack it in a bit on defense.

Well said 1Step, at the start of this season I for 1 certainly didn't expect United to be challenging for the Prem. title, let alone reach the semi's of the CL, disappointing as it was the other night to go out with such a whimper, but credit to Milan, they really were different class, & totally deserved to go through.

You have to remember Ronaldo is only 22. I said a few posts back that it is stupid to call him the best player in the world since the season is not even over yet. Anyone who does call him the best player in the world after less than season is either a blinkered united fan wearing extremely red tinted spectacles or someone who doesn't watch any football outside of the premiership.

He's a young player with a lot resting on his shoulders and he came up against arguably the best defensive midfielder in the world with an almost roy keane like determination to win on tuesday night.

Ronaldo will grow stronger with this experience.

I think the fact that Kaka was able to roam around the pitch freely being able to do whatever he liked was a fine example of the need for united to sign a real DMF like Hargreaves rather than a luxery player like Carrick who will play make passes but will never get stuck in and man mark and snap at the heels of somebody like Kaka all game.

I don't think a player can be the best player in the world until they are around 25 really....experience adds the extra dimension to anyone's natural talent.

i find myself agreeing here.

ronaldo has been fantastic for utd this season, just beacause he didnt play well the other night doesnt mean he is "hype". he will get better in big games with experience.

and yes for the love of God about Hargreaves. or Guattuso


here's to winning the double and leaving some good ol egg on moanrinhos face. after his comments the last few weeks.

i hope arsenal beat them this wkend. and i dont think man city will know what hit them tomorrow, utd after they go out of europe are normally very good at the backlash.
