Having been born in Manchester and having a staunch United fan in the family, we had to watch the Champions League semi-final first leg last night. We are glad we did because it was a thoroughly engaging match; especially if you were a United fan.
Those of you who watched the match will agree that the score line could have been much worse for Arsenal. Whilst Van de Saar had a relatively easy game at his end, the Arsenal keeper had his work cut out to prevent a 3 or 4-0 score line which would have all but eliminated Arsenal from the competition.
I’m sure I don’t need to repeat the result but I will; MANCHESTER UNITED 1 ARSENAL 0.
