Grazie Roma!

You post one great dummy and then someone comes along and makes it look like nothing.

What a piece of stepover magic from Roma's Brazilian genius. And what a great result. In a way it was set up perfectly for the Giallorossi to catch Lyon out on the break but boy were they good.

Sorry end to Inter's campaign. I must have written that of about every Champions League they have ever been part of. They were too scared and took too few risks, too late. The end of the game stuff was pathetic although it would probably have calmed down a lot quicker if Navarro hadn't stormed off the bench to break Burdisso's nose...

It does seem incredible that Inter have not won the Big One since 1965. The hangover from Lisbon in 1967 is obviously still affecting them. :o)

But as I've said elsewhere well done to Roma on a fantastic performance.

...Roma are a good team and they're playing with confidence. Their key players are on a prolonged run of form. Nobody will fancy being drawn against them.

It was a great punch-up at the end of the Inter match. If you're going to do it, then do it properly :o) A cheap shot by Navarro though. Not sure why he thought it was any of his business

I must say that as a Milan support I took much glee as I was watching the Liverpool-Barcelona game and no goal updates were coming through from the Valencia-Inter game.

While its nice to see an Italian club do well its great to see an Inter club do poorly. And the Champions League was their one chance to prove their domestic success was due to more than Calciopoli, oh well maybe next season...

As for Roma, what a team, if only they could become a bit more consistent, a deadly striker would make them a potent threat. I love their wingers and fullbacks, so much talent!

And Milan once again moved in to the quater-finals. A proud moment in a season that was been a depressing struggle.

I hope they can win, the only quater-finalist from last season still remaining, the most consistent team over the last 6 years and at the top of the UEFA rankings, but more importantly I feel like they actually believe in themselves again, or atleast in Kaka, that kid deserves a winners medal whether Milan win or not.

Normally don't post on this blog, but htere is always a first for everything! Well done Milan,one great goal from a world class player, when Kaka's bored with Italy there will always be a welcome for him in the east end of Glasgow. Here's to next year! Hail Hail

I think Milan were well worth the win over the two legs but, having said that, the longer it stayed goalless the more the chance of an upset grew. Celtic really needed better delivery on the set-pieces but, surprisingly, Nakamura let them down a bit in that regard.

Still, it was an intriguing clash. Not sure who I want the Italian teams to meet in the quarter finals. I might prefer them to land the big teams rather than banana skins like PSV and Valencia.
