We knew we needed to win but bloody hell. Every time we got the ball you just knew we'd score. Smudge getting the opening goal after the shit time he'd had, Carrick scoring not just one but two incredible goals. Rooney's goal which cut Roma open with about four passes. Goals for Ronaldo and Pat too. Plus Di Rossi's goal was decent.
Wasn't gonna go but ended up getting a return. Felt I had to be there as it would give some kind of closure after getting bricks, piss and fireworks thrown at us in Rome. Ended up in the family stand hugging some random kid after the fourth goal went in. There's laws against that kind of thing nowadays.
I was in the K stand, and it was an utterly unbelievable atmosphere. Champions League nights tend to be special, but this was something else. I had my Cantona flag, which got passed around the stand after the first couple of goals. Evey one was just dumbstruck. Grown men, complete strangers hugging each other like they were lifelong friends. Singing, dancing, and a lot of drinking. What a night.
