    I watched the first half of Real Madrid v Manchester United at Old Trafford. Scintillating football. Real plays at a different level. Its amazing how you have a side which has so many superstars but everyone puts their egos aside and works towards the team goal (i.e. the opposite team's goal !!). Seems like the Indian cricket team is on a similar road. While talks on Beckham's move to Madrid seem to get more Real day by day, it is hard to see how he'll fit into the team. Someone who sits on Manchester United's bench for a crucial game of this nature, how on earth would he start at Real? I woke up this morning to find that United had actually won 4-3 but Real Madrid went through on goal aggregate. I'm not sure if this is a consistent quality with English sport, but why do coaches and captains say they were proud of the boys after losing in a crucial game? Sir Alex Ferguson said this after yesterday's game. Nasser Hussain kept saying it after England got thrashed repeatedly in the Ashes. He even said it after India chased 325 in the NatWest Series final!
