    Just back from Moscow..........

    Just got back in the house 15 or so minutes ago. And it STILL hasn't sunk in :)

    Manchester United: Champions of England & Champions of Europe!! Woot to the f**king oot!!

    And just a quick mention for the Chelski supporters. I know this board has probably had it's fair share of sour grapes blues over the past day or so. But all (and I mean every single Chelski supporter I met in Moscow) were brilliant. Just brilliant. The banter was great and genuine leading up to the match. And on the way back to the hotel there were many blues on the same Metro and almost all of them to a man said well done and congratulations despite their bitter disappointment. Well played fellas. Disappointed to say that there were a few cheeky reds unfairly goading some of their supporters on the walk back to the hotel, but again to the Chelski supporters credit, they didn't rise to the bait and there was no trouble whatsoever between the two sets of supporters. Way to show the Scots eh? Just a pity there's no parade to come back too. Again, we can thank the Scots for that :(

    UNITED!!!!

    • funny how the chelsea fans couldn't behave in london and when you have a go at bigotted rangers fans feel free but how many times have celtic fans been down to manchester and no bother???? one half of one city a country does not make. and even if the glasgow fans had behaved there would have been trouble getting a parade from the rabid blues at manchester council

      • LOL! Yeah, I heard about the trouble outside Stamford Bridge after I got back. Couldn't help chuckling at that. But one thing Man Utd and Chelski fans DID NOT do was go to another city that were staging a final, fight with their police, wreck their cars and cause riots. But I take your point about my Scots comments. In another earlier post last week I have actually praised the Hoops fans and their conduct everytime they have visited Manchester. My comments were aimed squarely at the Gers louts and I should have made that clearer.

    • Welcome back you lucky so and so! That must have been a fantastic experience. I mean how often do we win the CL!! More soon I hope!
      It's good to hear that there was no trouble although some fans have complained about United fans being kept behind after the match.

      • To be fair, none us really wanted to leave the stadium but the section I was in wasn't at any point held back. Me and my cousin stayed until United had left the pitch and then walked out with the rest of the Utd supporters. And like I said, outside and on the journey back to vladikino there was zero trouble. It was a brilliant trip. One for the memories even if my bank account has taken a big hit. Never again will I complain about the price of a pint in Manchester city centre. LOL!

    • Well done Raj. And very well done to both sets of fans, especially Chelsea.
      This reception thing sucks. I think the whole city should be able to celebrate this. The tart an radiio 5 was saying "well why dont you hold something at your ground". Well luv, you cant fit half a million reds into OT.
