If they pull off something at Camp Nou, wouldn't be that bad. I'd love to crush them in the Champion League.
It'd mean a clean sweep, us beating them in every competition, right?

Over two legs I think we'd have them

That article may as well have been signed off, Chemical Ali.

So the only hope they are clutching to is that they won in Paris and scored two goals from crosses and corners at the Nou Camp 20 years ago? And none of their hopes are based on their current players and how they actually perform?

Usable anywhere, academy graduate, dependable, consistent but never outstanding.  They need more players like him according to the couple of new threads they've started in his honour.

Actually watched a whole non Liverpool game last night and the difference in how results and performances are spun - well wow, just wow.
If that was Liverpool, conceding an away goal and then not registering a shot on target in response. Then our obituary in the competition would have been well and truly written, whereas you'd think Utd had battered Barcelona. If it were us, there would be questions about why we didn't beat a below par Barcelona, whereas it was United stifled them. Everything was talked up and the away goal and blank scoresheet conveniently forgotten.

Contrast that with Tuesday when BT were constantly reminding us of how an away goal would leave us with a problem in Portugal, when we'd actually scored 2.

Contrast the lack of pressure and the hype of Pogba, with the scrutiny that Salah at 40% of the price gets.

What I saw was a United side that are such a shadow of their former selves. Under Ferguson they would have put Barcelona under sustained pressure to the point where an equaliser was inevitable.

So that'll be them dogging a 2-1 next week then to widespread acclaim?

So Matt Busby's way then, not United's way.

United's way nowadays is throw lots of money at reasonably big name players regardless of whether they are a fit for the team, panic when they don't work out, sack the manager, repeat cycle with next manager.

To be fair, fans of every club think the media has it in for them.

As far as I'm concerned, the Man Utd media-wankfest only works in everyone else's favour if it gets Man Utd fans thinking Solskjaer is their savour. Best to let them wallow in it.

There is also the fact that we are now undoubtedly better then Utd, and so are held to higher standards. I'd take it as a complement.

It's the continuing Evertonisation that is going on at the Theatre of Hate. They didn't get walloped, so it's seen as a good result. Everton have been like that in derbies since the 1970s. All United have to do now to go full Everton is claim that the 0-1 defeat was actually some kind of moral victory. The media are just lazy shits with an agenda, so neither club get called out on their failures the way they should be.

I did enjoy when the screen shows in the first half Utd poss. % as 24 and a couple of minutes later the commentators began trying to explain how Utd should be pretty happy because it was an even game.
I bet Burnley could have managed 24% against Barca at home as well, and at least would have posed some threat at set pieces.

They had their chance. They're missing out on two excellent managers really- in Poch and Espirito Santo who would've been perfect, heading into a DOF/SD structure. "Now", was the time! I just can't believe this! It feels like we've "dodged a bullet"... and it went straight through their own foot! ;D
