not another italian job...

It was predictable. But then, why did I still drive in the wee hours of the morning? Why did I choose to abandon the comfort of my mattress? Why was I willing to lose my sleeping time and be zombie-like sleepy at work later on? Why did I do it when the end result from last night's game was already obvious? We call it passion, the feeling of being there for your team, to support them whenever they need it even when you're not in the stadium, to see them try to make us proud. If only there's a way to pass on that collective passion from every watching United supporters from all over the world to the 11 men on the field, then we will be invincible. It's by watching game like this when the real United supporter could stand up and be counted. Supporting United is not just about having the latest jersey or merchandise in store, it's about being with your team through victories and losses. It's about feeling the same pain that they had.

The feeling I've got all week before the game, was the feeling I had while watching Leverkusen game a couple of years ago. We tried everything but the opponent was just too strong and resisting everything we threw at them. Tonight's case wasn't that different. Milan will always be an elite team, but I expect at least we could make them sweat a bit with our never-say-die attitude. It was disappointing, Giggsy had to be withdrawn early with bleeding nose from Gattuso's elbow, Ronaldo kept jacking the shots wherever he was instead of passing, Ruud was stifled efficiently by that bald Dutchman, Keano was strangled by Gattuso & Seedorf, and Rooney's youthful exuberance couldn't still get the best of those creaky legs of Maldini.

When the score was still 0-0, I always felt that we would still have the chance and all we needed just a little bit more injection of aggression and fighting spirit that could be given by Alan Smith. However, Fergie just gave him 5 minutes to do so after we were down 0-1. Why didn't Fergie just throw him and Bellion, or Rossi, or even Choccy for God's sake after Crespo scored again??? The funny thing was that while driving and contemplating about the game I could think about Fergie resigning. Actually, it made sense with him being humbled by that bastard smug Mourinho, failing in Europe, and being virtually impossible to snatch the Premiership title this season. It's always easy to blame the Gaffer, saying that he's past his time and such but I belive this season's failure will only motivate him better to win everything available next season.

A lot of whys and a lot of what ifs, and they still wouldn't change a thing. We're out of Europe, again and it's gonna be long flight home from Milan.

For me, it's just another sleepy drive home and another nodding-off in the office for work.
