Fine night again. Manchester completely gridlocked – took us an hour and a half to get to the ground. Was on Radio Manc with Jimmy Wagg on Monday night, took me twenty minutes to get to Media City, which is near the swamp.
Expensive tickets, usual chaos outside the ground, inside, fans wandering about trying to find their seats, rest of us moaning as to why we were moved from ours whilst there were empty seats on the same row. Fans still arriving at half time. Roma fans in prime position.
Perfect start. Maicon should have gone even though I think that’s a harsh rule. Should’ve had a pen for handball, Joe’s slip let in Totti, but at least he knocked Giggs off his perch. Terrible corners and free kicks again, slow tempo, rubbish substitutions, poor result, massive disappointment, but we’ll fight to the end. Oh, and it rained at the end.
