Right now I’m way too giddy to compose a detailed analysis but United deservedly beat City 3-1 at Old Trafford to seal their place in the Carling Cup final. And it was in the sweetest possible manner: another late, injury-time goal, headed in by Wayne Rooney.

Our shoulders dropped a little when Ferdinand allowed the whining scumbag to score but the United players, going forward relentlessly in the second half, did not give up and first Carrick should have scored then in injury time Fletcher’s header was brilliantly clawed away by Given.

But from the resulting corner Valencia played the ball to Giggs, he crossed and the totally unmarked Rooney headed home with power. Old Trafford erupted with joy as City’s 33-year wait for a trophy looks unlikely to end this season. Thirty-three years and counting!
