And because they are favorites, as were Bayern, our 4-4-1-1 was very VERY important to our triumph in Munich, I believe it will be so against United too.

Above all this, I think Carlo has has the upper hand on SAF before, plus, with United on form, Milan will want to do better against them to show their worth. I am not as optimistic as I am making it sound, but the fact that we have nothing to loose, as opposed to them, the team is 100% concentrated on the CL and nothing but the CL (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/devilsmiley.gif)

Giving in, was what I did ahead of our clash with Bayern. but little did I know that this team plays it's best football against big clubs, such as United. *shame on me, for letting in*

I have a great deal of respect for SAF, but when a line has to be drawn, Ancelotti has been consistent in bringing in results both in Europe and in the championship, and it is in the final run that Milan show their true colors. Which is why all this that I am typing isn't just a bunch of feelings mashed with logic, but pure instinct that United wont come into the match as hungry as our Milan will.

If u look at it for a tactical aspect; Milan has been testing all season long different formations and testing players in different positions. Which is opposed to what tactic SAF has been doing all season long. Milan has two sound formations which the team adapt to very intelligently, the 4-4-1-1, 4-3-2-1 and the 4-3-1-2 ... All of which, Milan has perfected in the closing stages of this season.

If you want to look at it from a technical aspect, well Serie A is much more technical than EPL.

If you want to compare players, then Seedorf is much more effective as a team player than CR. Our defence is no match for their attack and Super Pippo Inzaghi brought the Devil to the Allienz while he wasnt even 100% fit (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Plus, playing at Old Trafford, where they humilated Roma is an extra incentive for us to make due, and show them how Italian Football kicks @ss !! Plus, revenge for Roma (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/devil.gif)
*


And I do agree with your points. But all I'm saying is that everytime we get cocky about something and are sure of a win we end up being dissappointed.

Milan, have surpassed everyone's expectations, from crawling at the bottom of Serie A during November to nearly fourth in Serie A and in the last 4 in Europe after overcoming Bayern at home, some thing that hasn't been done yet in the Allianz Arena.

But let's not forget that we are still considered the outsiders of the competition, and imo this will suite our team just fine.

I'm not confident or pessimistic, but I'm definately proud of what our team and coach have achieved despite having our worst season under Carlo.

On the other hand I do trust Carlo and I think he will make the right choices, Man U found Roma vulnearble and esploited them, but they won't be able to do that against us, the only thing that scares me is their speed. But if they think that we will go out at Old Trafford and have a melt down like Roma then they've got another thing coming.

We'll just have to be smart about how we go about playing over the 2 legs. Most importantly stifling their wingers will be vital, that's why I think a 4-4-1-1 with Rino and Ambro out wide is important with Clarence and Andrea playing through the middle is important.

If United don't recover Vidic in time then that will also be a big plus

Well if that is the way you want to go about it then it is your choice.

But this is the guy that has took us to the pinnacle of European football and kept us there for 5 years running. No team has ever done that and we might have always had a strong team apart from this season but if you look at the other squads they where just as strong as us but still didn't manage to do what we did.

So you've got to give Carlo compliments on this aspect

I think the key to this one will be to control the tempo of the game. Man United like to play at a very fast pace which suits their wingers, whereas Milan's style of short passing and possession is better suited to a more controlled tempo. I think the 4-4-1-1 that Han suggested is the best way for us to impose our tempo on the game.

A narrow loss with an away goal would be a good result. A score draw would be a great result.

they are weaker in defence than they used to be when they had Vidic and Neville.
Well, Vidic is out for a season, but Nevile may come back against us.

but, all in all I still think that we are stronger than them in midfield.

moreover, Van der Sar is out of form in last couple of matches.

As usual in england things get all out of proportion after 1 performance!!
I firmly believe we can beat Manure, yes they played well against Roma but god Roma were awful and don't forget manure were coming off 2 straight defeats so there form wasn't all that great. Ronaldo wasn't that great the last time we played them, rooney 1 goal in 18months of C.L football to me the midfield is the key and i can't believe that Carlo will allow manure as much space as Roma did. Compress the midfield which in turns limits the space in which ronaldo can use his pace and that's alot of his threat away and are passing will destroy them! i predict a draw at old trafford and a 2 goal victory at the San Siro (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) (IMG:http://cyrus.medialayer.net/~m1ke/milanfan.com/forums/style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)
