Just watched another famous European victory against the mighty Anderlecht - what a win for Midtable United !!

And what the fuck is that banner - "European Capital of Trophies" ??!!



Europe must have a really small postcode.

Oh wait am I stupid? Does the CL qualification for the EL winner NOT take the 4th place slot? Has this already been answered a billion times?
You know what, I'm writing this here now and I'm going to put it in my signature and leave it there for the next 5 years, no matter how embarrassing it might or might not turn out to be: Jordan Henderson is going to be a fantastic player.

Billion and 1 now - England gets 5 places, Top 4 and Europa winners

Europe must have a really small postcode.

Just to remind them of the European Cup alone :-

1)   Real Madrid – 11
2)   AC Milan - 7
3)   Liverpool – 5
4)   Bayern – 5
5)   Barcelona – 5
6)   Ajax – 4
7)   Inter – 3
8.)   Man Utd – 3
9)   Juventus – 2
10)   Benfica - 2

Smalling has a knee injury sustained on England duty while Jones suffered a foot problem in a tackle with Smalling in training before England's friendly against Germany in Dusseldorf last month.

Mourinho added: "They have to be brave now. If it was me, it [returning from injury] would be tomorrow.

"It is time for Jones and Smalling to be brave, to risk, because for the team we have to do everything. That is the way we think.

Good to see that they got Celta in the semi-finals. The trickiest team remaining in the draw. Berizzo would love to set up his team against Man Utd's slow play and long balls. Also, Fellaini would love Roncaglia and Cabral.

Depends on the Burnely-United result...

If United drop points against Burnley then the best result in City-United would be a United win, as that would put us in the driving seat for 3rd.

Also, even though United do appear to be in touch now, I can't see them beating both Arsenal and Spurs away with a EL semifinal prior to both those games either, so I think we'll be comfortably ahead of them after gameweek 37.

What it all comes down to is our results though. Just got to beat Palace to turn up the pressure on both City and United for their midweek game.
Assuming we win our games, a draw puts us in the driving seat. If we win all our games, and those two draw against each other but win all the other games, we beat City by one points, Untied by two points.

At least seven people have died after an electric cable fell on fans watching a Manchester United match on TV in Nigeria, police say.

The high-tension cable fell on a crowded shack showing the Europa League quarter-final against Anderlecht in the southern city of Calabar.

At least 30 people were taken to hospital by local ambulances and police who arrived quickly at the scene.

English football has a large and passionate following in Nigeria.

I feel for the guy, wish he never played for Utd.

I know terrible injuries happen but Mourinho not rotating cost his career. He could have played a few years in MLS easily. 36 is quite an old age to overcome such injury, last player I know was Falcao at age of 28 and it still took him 2 years to be clinical.

Any news from Rojo? I wonder how they will set up that defense without him.

United could have been out to Anderlecht.  Shows how risky the strategy of solely relying on EL is.  Celta could still knock them out. 

So what does Jose do?  Focus on both fronts, or just on the EL?  My prediction is they narrowly miss out on both (say 5th in the PL and lose the final to Ajax/Lyon).

Apparently he's too good to play for them. A striker that has 5 in 26 league games, 1 in 8 Europa League games and 1 in 6 League Cup games is too good ::)
