Herrera and Pogba should be swapped, along with Lingard and Mkhi.

Also, are those four our only fit (first team quality) defenders at the moment?

Celta should feel aggrieved if there isn't 7 minutes added on. United have taken the absolute piss.

Good result and certainly one I would have taken before the match, we go into the home leg in a very strong position. Realistically, though, if we could hit a cow's arse with a banjo we'd be leaving Spain with four away goals.

Yeah that could've been much better if we made our superiority count. Lingard's finishing was awful.

We've perfected the art of drawing at Old Trafford so hopefully that should be enough to get us to the final. Celta's front 3 are a bit of a handful but the rest of their team isn't much cop.

Seeing as we are England's sole European representative in a lacklustre season, I implore all Englishmen to get behind United tonight.


TIA.

ManU will do it without me keeping the fingers crossed. And we'll see a European Final without a spanish team, at last. When was the last time this happened? Can't remember :D

Good, controlled half. Only Aspas has threatened to cause any damage, getting past Darmian and Blind a little too easily a couple of times.

That wasn't much fun.

Jose royally fucked that up and got extremely lucky. His habit of going ultra defensive with narrow leads against inferior opposition at home is very annoying. We should've gone more for another goal to kill the game completely.

Happy we're playing Ajax instead of Lyon. They're obviously no mugs but they're such a young side, if we fail to beat them then we don't deserve CL football next season.

No Bailly is a big miss. With our best defender out De Gea simply has to play. Romero's done well but he punches simple balls that De Gea would catch and set us up for a counter.

Congrats, ManU for reaching the Final. Although at the end they were lucky that this swedish guy Guidetti(?) isn't as clinical in front of the goal as his fellow countryman Ibrahimovic. In the last seconds he could've made the 1-2.

Nah I don't blame Guidetti. How can he be expected to react that quickly when Beauvue - through on goal in the final minute of stoppage time - inexplicably decided to pass across goal? No wonder he couldn't sort his feet out.

Yeah, I am with you but he (Beauvue?) has done it and passed. I bet a striker like Ibra would have expected it and made the goal. Guidetti couldn't sort out his feet. OK, let's agree that we disagree here.

Man U and Ajax getting 9,500 tickets each for a 50,000 capacity stadium is pretty scandalous isn't it? Over 60% of the stadium allocated to hangers on.
