0-1 Rooney 24'
Come on! Chelsea never stood a chance. We were on fire tonight with room to improve. In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand
United outdid Chelsea in every part of the pitch, but it's still anyone's game!
Nice goal by United and good result, but I wouldn't count Chelsea out.
I honestly would have taken a draw but phew! thats half the job done. As for Torres, he clearly doesn't suit Chelsea at all, infact I couldn't believe Ancelotti took of Drogba and left Torres on the pitch, Drogba was their most dangerous player!
If I were Ancelotti I would start with our old line up and then have Torres come off the bench.
Torres looks like another shevchenko.
I wouldn't really know since I didn't follow Chelsea during Mourinhos years but I think Shevchenko actually scored in his first game (against Liverpool I think). I think Torres needs some mental help, he just needs to see the ball go in the back of the net at least once to get his confidence back.
I am not a fan of any of these teams, but as a neutral footballfan I think this was deserved result. Chelsea need to do a lot of changes to the return to have any chance. Today, they played not as a team but the players run around one and one with any plans of what they do . Unfortunately this was not a good match for neutral eyes. But United did what they should.
United came to Stanford Bridge and did their job. They`re not suppose to entertain you. Last year we did a big mistake against Inter. That will not happen this year. Like what I see, and will see it in the final as well;-)
Hey, I don't think you are a United Supporter.. "Last year we did a big mistake against Inter." Bayern Munich kicked you out last year.. hahahaha
LOL Sahil, yeah it Bayern Munich, the Robben Volley was the one that kick us out, Inter? we always had beaten them
We can play better but thats just goes to show how strong we are! Rooney looked miles better than either Torres or Drogba. Carrick made Frank look old and Carrick is very under rated. Which is unfair for the lad, he needs to be starting for England. In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand!
Is it only me or Real and Barca are superior this year ?
Well Real and Barca dont exactly have tough opponents.
WHAT Barca didn't have tough opponents, this is 2011(do you know this)? Did United have Arsenal in round of 16, First time you get a tough opponent and beat them(just a leg) and you act like you are the champions of europe.
Well I'm talking about their Quarter Final opponents, and no disrespect to Arsenal but Barca are miles ahead of them. And i'm not acting like we're the champions of europe, far from it, we still got long to go. I'm just delighted my team got a great result against a tough opposition.
Only you! You always have something bad to say about United. We can do it, even if we are underdogs. I believe United can beat Barca regardless of the doubters. In Sir Alex I Trust, United We Stand.
Well Real and Barca will probably meet in the semis so that's one of them out the competition anyway. As much as it pains me to say it I can't see anyone stopping Barca, if United got them in the final we would have to be at our very best and hope they have an off day.
Wembley here we com!. Admit it everybody: United are a team of class! We will take this, the league and FA cup! Looking forward to many great moments coming weeks...
I'm just as happy as you are but lets calm down, Chelsea are more than capable of winning at Old Trafford, we just gotta maintain our focus.
Okay, agree. We got a result we could only dream about, and I'm high up in the sky right now;-)
Yeah thats the important thing. Not to get overconfident because of the result
"admit it everybody: United are a team of class"----(looks at rooney).....lol.
I can definately see us in the final if we can focus enough against chelsea next week. The final will be 50/50 though no matter who makes it there
Sooo nobody gonna mention the penalty Ramires should've gotten at the end there eh?
Yeah we all saw it except the ref.....
No use crying about it now. Wasn't called. Move on.
Haha yeah you wouldnt be saying that if it was the other way around
It's easy for people to excuse their team's performance over one incident. Luiz should've been sent off in the league game, but it's just a convenient excuse to cover the fact that United didn't play well enough in the second half. Same thing here, Chelsea had over an hour to reply to United's opener, and they didn't. Teams shouldn't rely on the ref to get them through a tie.
Not gonna mention torres's diving that should have gotten him sent off eh?
Well he did get a yellow, a straight red for diving wouldve been way too harsh and honestly with the way he played United should be glad he's gonna start in the next match
I suppose so yeah, but he dived twice, rio ferdinand picked him up first time, second time he was booked. He also raised his hand in rio's face, which again is a yellow. And i think essien and ramires's very late tackles on Rooney that went unpunished
he dives twice the first one was the worse where Rio make him his bitch
if only they still got ballack, it would be different. they dont have any intimidating player like ballack other than drogba.
true, maybe they shud sign.. Felipe Melo.. hahaha
Well done Giggs. Still consistently one the best players in every game he plays. Pure class to control the ball/take it past the defenter with one touch
