Match Report Submitted on 31/12/2006 by ?
A half empty stadium meant that there weren’t many of the local Tifosi near enough to the 180 travelling punters who were caged into one corner. The net above came in handy though, blocking the descent of three or four firecrackers chucked in the direction of The Toon fans.

After 37 mins a stunning Milner cross from the left fell perfectly for Luque to nod into the net from eight yards at the far end of the ground from where the disbelieving Toon fans were stationed.

Some eight minutes later the Spaniard was still celebrating, waving at those travelling supporters as he left the field, before high-flying Sibierski in the centre circle and giving him a little demo of exactly how he headed the ball in. For one second we even thought he was going to try and swap shirts with an opponent.
