some amazing cheating in that
In true pub bore style I covered as many outcomes as possible but I was right.
Could have been better and could have been worse for Utd I think ish.
Everything to play for but I must say Lukaku is not looking up to his price tag .
Compared to Pogba as %?
Did Man Utd have a shot on target in that game? I was watching Juventus on one screen and Utd on another but never saw one.
Is that four defeats in five games for Solskjaer now? #oleout
The wheels are falling off Ole.
Yeah, but we'll always have Paris.
I mean 1-0 to Barcelona is not a terrible result. I think the next game will be much more decisive...
A few observations:
1) Young is absolute gash
2) McTominay is unreal and United’s biggest prospect imo
3) If Barca play like that over two legs against Liverpool* we will win.
*Provided we play each other of course
De Gea crated a goal for West Ham on Saturday and had another assist tonight. Young has maximized on his career and fair play for that but at near 34 is not suited to play out of position at this level if he ever was. Smalling can hold his head up. Jones always in crisis mode. Lindelof pretty much hid. Fred does ok for a period and then concedes possession for no particular reason. Pogba seemed to be looking to get booked. Superb player on his day - but again signs of a character flaw when everything is not going swimmingly. McTominay, again could more than hold his head up. Lingard out of his depth. Martial the type of performance (if that's the word) that saw him excluded from the French World Cup squad. Rashford, had a couple of chances to do something in the first 10 mins but fluffed them. Needs to get back to working on his game and forget the hype.
Lack of quality (both technical and mental) clear for all to see.
Barcelona are on another level though, and should by rights win the CL. very intimidating to play against Im sure. I wouldn't be too harsh, ManU have been on good form of late, and theres no surprise in the overall result between the 6th best team in England vs the best team in Europe if not the world.
Just checked La Liga table: Barca have lost two in 32 of their last league games this season and are 9 points clear at the top
If one of Man Us early chances went in it couldve been different, but once Messi opened the scoring it was all over really
Barcelona have no right to win the CL. They won’t beat any of Ajax, Man City or Liverpool. United are short on class. I came over to Barcelona yesterday on the plane with Utd fans and they were being realistic, talking about 12-18 months rebuilding, and looking forward to “going to some different places next season” in the Europa League. I hear Azerbaijan is nice at this time of year.
They were also clutching at straws at Tottenham being reportedly £500m in debt. “Even worse than us”.
Massively underappreciating their professionalism.
Also scratch Man City from that list, after tonight they're 'going home on a shit mini bus '
Ole out of his depth. can't see any improvement.
after watching spurs citeh game, this looks like another shambolic appointment by edward woodward. Should have waited for Pooch.
Ashley Young: Manchester United condemn racist abuse of defender
4-0 nil and not even a shot on target.
they had at least one
I'm sure they'll bounce back on wednesday.
Just for the record I care more about OGS than any single one of the current team.
'From the bitter heart of hell I stab at thee citeh'.
Oh, but statistics don't tell the full story...
After 'that night' in Barceona, ole has spent his time smashing mirrors and walking under ladders, had to tell in the end. Just think, if he'd stayed at Cardiff, he could have been the new Neil Warnock and standing for the Brexit Party.
