Long time readers of this blog will know that we're not exactly huge fans of the European Champions League. Maybe it's the small team mentality we have but whatever it is, it usually fails to excite us big time.

For once though, we're looking forward to what should be some cracking games in the first knockout round.

Tonight's AC Milan - Man United game looked to be the stand out tie of the round and although good in stages, it wasn't the absolute cracker we expected. By finishing 3-2 though, the second leg is sure to be explosive.

Just a shame that UEFA have decided to split the fixtures up over two weeks, which I'm assuming is to try and allow maximum television coverage and exposure.

Like so many other things with the whole competition, it just devalues what used to be a cracking European Champions Cup.
