yes i do hate man u (not as much as the prawn sarnie brigade that follow them)....although i will admit they have a fantastic defence, a great holding midfielder in hargreaves and a very talented potential match winner in ronaldo. They're a good team but they are seriously lightweight when it comes to the creative midfield area, that's where chelsea started to boss things with only hargreaves putting up any resistance.
in '99, without scholes united looked ordinary. in '08 even with scholes united looked ordinary relying too heavily on ronaldo to conjure something for nothing.
United may have won, but chelsea have the moral victory and as a neutral they deserved to win. Especially when you look at how anonymous united were in the second half. And that's total balls about united being better in extra time, they did sweet FA in extra time. Chelsea were better up until drogba was sent off. As in '99 relying on luck becuase they weren't good enough over the 90 minutes.
