And five months later…

3-0
Man Utd 4 – Newcastle 1
Another year, another FA Cup Final… Today Man Utd beat Newcastle by four goals to one to qualify for the FA Cup Final for the second year running. United have won the tournament a record 11 times, and in the final they will meet arch-rivals Arsenal. The best part about the game today was that Ruud scored two goals – his first goals for United for five months!

AGF 1 – FCK 2
FCK kept the pressure on league leaders Brøndby by beating AGF in a match that saw the home team score with the hand of striker Morten Rasmussen. I saw the match on tv and instantly shouted “He scored with his hand” – everybody could see it, except for the referee, who after the game admitted it was a mistake and that he should have shown the striker the yellow card for the offense. FCK had already scored twice though, Alvaro Santos and Hjalte Nørregaard providing the goals that made sure FCK is still in the championship race.
