Deeply suspicious of Man Utd since Mourinho was sacked. Everything has gone in their favour since: FA Cup is weakest it's been at this point in years, and now their Champion's League opponent are missing their best player. All too convenient, and the football big wigs would have a lot to lose if their financial darling were to fall down the table organically.

It would be alright if they didn't get Chelsea AWAY in the next round of the Cup, right after they defeated Arsenal also away. :)

Or is it ideal because they get to play two big teams who are famously out of form? I'm sure we all have our own opinions on that, but we all agree it is suspicious.

Okay but what are the options? Liverpool is out, it's only City, you could say for every other team that is weak, or out of form. :)

He ain't all that when big things are expected of him anyway. I'm more concerned about Verratti missing the opening leg. We could still play 3412 without Neymar with di Maria behind Mbappé and Cavani. Would still scare the shit out of United's backline.
Having said that, this United side looks mentally ready for the challenge. Much more than we are (coz our opponents are so shit).

Gonna be a good tie that.

Ref was fussy generally I thought - very early yellow cards for not a lot but like you say Man U didn't really create anything and PSG look comfortable generally.

Marquinhos nullified Pogba, which made United toothless and ridiculously ordinary. Props to Tuchel for singling this out and winning the game last night (and hopefully the tie!) in what was our first away win in a CL KO tie since Leverkusen back in 13/14.
Went to a famous ground, saw a famous win and was dazzled by the sheer beauty of this ground. Its size, its structure, the Stretford End, rarely have I seen such an impressive stadium. To win there without too much trouble was just the icing on the cake.

Onwards and upwards then. Let's win this thang!
