I realize that Untied are no longer in the competition, but it seems to me that it still holds interest to most United fans, especially considering how close the team came to the QF's, despite playing poorly. (And I can't help but think that United would have had a decent chance to win the competition if they had advanced, given all the other teams that have fallen...) I don't think anyone would have predicted that Real Madrid, AC Milan, and Arsenal would all bow out in the QF's. And for Milan to lose a 4-1 1st leg lead to Depor is almost inconcievable. How a team that plays defense as well as Milan let this happen, I have no idea. I didn't expect Madrid to win the competition this year as they have no defense, but I didn't expect them to blow a 3 goal lead to Monaco, either. And I certainly wouldn't have put Porto and Monaco in the semis at the start of the competition. Well, UEFA seemed to be trying the new format to give the smaller clubs a better chance. This year, it seems to have worked. Other thoughts, especially from anyone who saw any of the games? Only Arsenal-Chelsea was on in the US, and it was quite an entertaining game.
