well, I am home, I am feeling a bit better (if still chock full of painkillers), the sun is shining, and just over 4 hours we will be listening to the cheesy notes of the "Champions theme-tune". Woo. Maybe.
No Totti, as we have known for several days, so let's hope that tonight we get the Vucinic who played against Real & Inter rather than than the Vucinic who occasionally turns up to give the ball away a lot and look scared of the goal.
I wish I hadn't watched United demolish Villa so comprehensively on Match of the Day. I mean, we are better than Villa, obviously. A lot better. But... aside from making me shout obscenities at the telly, the thought of putting the defence I had earlier watched making a gigantic mess at the Sant'Elia in front of Rooney & Ronaldo just frightened me.
Let us trust that the players are made of sterner stuff. Wish us luck.
