Hi Steve

Your description of last night's game was on the ball. United slow and sluggish and juventus slick and organised.
The amazing thing was that united only lost 0-1 it should have been a lot more.

We have been to Madeira several times. Once while we were there we went to watch a schools athletics day up above Funcial. Towards the end the Funcial football team came out and had a training session. We stayed and watched some of it. My wife took some pictures. Acouple of years later Cristiano joined Man United. One later I was doing some processing on some pictures and when I looked my wife had taken some greay shots with Ronaldo on them. When she took them we and the World at large had never heard of him. That soon changed, arguably he has become one of the best players in the World.

Cheers

Mike
