Ah, I am in a happy mood. Its been a crappy few months sports wise. (I am trying to forget that Australia won the Cricket World Cup - again! *Curses*).
And I was all set to see (much to my misery) Man U make it to the Champions League finals as well. Well in all honesty, I never expected the Rossoneri to make it so far....but I have been so happy with the way they have been playing.
And they were darn near perfect last night at the San Siro. Kaka continued to be brilliant. Gattuso played with such passion it made my heart glad. And the midfield - ah, words fail me. They passed the ball with such precision. Man U seemed like second rate team at best.
So, it is on to Athens. And as everyone surely knows, a repeat of the 2005 final, in which Liverpool came from three down to eventually win the cup. Milan are intent on erasing that memory. I hope they do.
P.S.: I want very much for Andrea Pirlo to have a good final. He was very good in the midfield last night. But his free kicks have been sucking of late. Here's hoping he finds goal scoring form. I have such a soft spot for the man. And I still want his hair. Very much.
