Morning my dears. Nothing shy of a sensational evening. I can hardly express how happy it makes me watching us play like that.

Upstairs for thinking, downstairs for dancing. Our mindset was spot on. Our shape and concentration was immense. we kept possession and mopped up the losses of the same. We moved the ball like Champions. This was one one of those rare, rare games that will bench-mark performances for a generation

The Milanese rain turned out to be holy water absolving Gomes of all previous sins.  He made two extraordinary saves and looked every bit a world class goalie.

Make no mistake this composed side beat a formidable European giant in their own back yard and in manner that you would have barely known we were the away side. Look, even naffin’ Ray Wilkins was cooing.

Here’s some player ratings.

Gomes – 9.13 – A pair of breathtaking saves.

8 – Flamini wants arresting for that tackle.

Gallas – 8.96 – Champions League class.

Woody – 8 – Sent a bit of shiver down the spine to see him again.

Sir Les – 9 – No hoofs, no wild headers – looked confident.

7.99 – Sound as a pound, thank the Lord.

Azza Blud – 9. 24– The wing heeled winger worked very hard.

Sandra – 9.25 – His best game in the shirt yet – a mature, elegant game.

Sarge – 9.24 – Robust and unrelenting.

Peanut – 8.99 – His best game in the shirt yet n’all.

8 – Can’t believe his stitches held.

8Cool calm and Croation. Some bench we have, eh?

9.27 – I’m scared how we’d be without him – he was pivotal.

3MP – 9.26 – When he actually gets to play football, he’s a devil.
