C-Ron brace helps Red Devils reach Rome
Arsenal 1/ Manchester Utd 3 (Manchester Utd progress 4-1 on aggregate)
It usually takes Cristiano Ronlado ten minutes to apply lashings of gel to his carefully-coiffed cranium – approximately two minutes more than it took his side to deflate the nervous atmosphere at The Emirates last night. The tricky winger’s two goals were brilliant (just look how far he runs for his second), and helped to give United the kind of scoreline they deserved at Old Trafford last week.
It’s too bad Arsenal forgot to turn up – it says a lot when your best player is an out of position substitute who couldn’t hit a cow’s backside with a banjo. Yes Nicklas Bendtner, we just gave you some heavily-disguised praise. Enjoy it.
