Haha haha lol that’s so man unitedy


#703

Don’t think I’m gonna stop laughing.

Genuinely can’t think of a high profile manager shiting themselves so badly. A humiliation and entirely his fault


#704

Coughwengercough


#705

Bayern 7-0 Barca


#706

massive mourinho apologist, but he’s completely done himself there


#707

Post-pep never mind


#708

Really hope some of sevillas unequivocally world class world Cup winning players, the equivalents of let’s say eg buffon and chiellini - hope they come out in the press tomorrow and talk about how naive the opposition were.


#709

Barcelona 5 Real 0 would probably have been a more relevant example.


#710

Yup. Think he’s been good largely (despite being an enormous dickhead) but that was one of the most bizarrely misjudged approaches to a tie I can think of. It’s like he just assumed they were great and somehow continued to think that despite all the evidence to the contrary over the two legs.


#711

Not very bants and not the reason for the result but Vilanova returning from cancer treatment not really comparable.

Also that Bayern were stupendously good. This Sevilla is one of the worst teams still in the competition.


#712

Think that was just the best club side ever handing out a pasting. Obvs mistakes were made but winning at the nou camp in that game would have been an incredible achievement. This sevilla side are mince


#713

Yeah had forgotten it was after pep and clarified


#714

one and the same thing. embrace and enjoy the shabs.

but yeah, shocking how he approached this tie. tactics were probably just ‘score, you figure things out on the pitch’.


#715

No, he specifically set up to contain them, we did a fucking man-marking job on Ever Banega in the first leg, decent player but no way he should be someone you set up to nullify at the expense of your own strengths.


#716

Best thing we could have done this evening would have been to turn around at kickoff and hoof in an own goal to force chasing the game.


#717

nzonzi sounds fucking identical to Henry.


#718

Good player, well weird that he was at Stoke.


#719

eh…don’t think he’s very good, personally. good in la liga because he’s got a nice touch and can pass, but would be shite in many other leagues. don’t think he’s been capped by France either.


#721

Are United fans disappointed with Sanchez at all? Seems like he’s been about as good as he was for us this season (i.e. not very)
