Rampant United hit four past the mighty AC Milan to reach the final eight of the Champions League. David Beckham playing the prodigal son stole all the pre-match headlines for his long-awaited return to Old Trafford. Good to see the Stretford End gave him a fantastic welcome when he came on as a substitute late in the second half. Beckham booked his passage into United folklore after wearing the green and gold colours of Newton Heath scarf after the final whistle.

However, even Beckham couldn't stop United steam-rollering their way through to a superb 4-0 win. Rooney scored two taking his tally to 30 for the season. Park and Fletcher were also on the scoresheet. AC Milan were not that impressive, lacking in any desire to tackle back and looking a little old and tired. The only excitement came when they brought Beckham on and he let rip with a right foot volley. On this form, dare I say United are looking hard to beat. Things are looking up as Real Madrid got beaten by Lyon tonight and Ronaldo the winker is sent packing. Bring on the next round. Fingers crossed we get Arsenal and hope Chelsea get Barca. Would be nice to see John Terry get turned over by Messi....
