    Listening to some sports talk today, it amazes me how many people say, "its wrong to do this stuff, but..." No, there is no but. Protest. Chant. But once you start getting overly aggressive much less violent, its just wrong. Especially with kids around.

    :funny: Nothing a good old heartfelt apology can't cure. I wasn't even aware it was legal to carry a firearm in public in Greece.

    Aaaaaaand Fellaini is starting for United against Sevilla…

    DDG, Valencia, Bailly, Smalling, Young, Matic, Fellaini, Lingard, Sanchez, Rashford, Lukaku.

    A midfield 2 of Fellaini and Matic is rather unpleasant.

    It has one of those anxious vibes about it, it's 0-0 and over the last few years our team has seemed psychologically weak at times when the chips are down, a few too many close shaves.

    Jose got us an EL title so I'm not super worried, but that midfield is asking to get run over and for our defense to participate way too much.

    I can see us going 1 one up or something but then clinging on for the last 35 minutes with another backs to the wall type display. Not pretty but, hopefully, effective.

    Has all the feel of a pre season friendly this game. If Sevilla were half decent this tie would be over, they seem to be the only one with any urgency or desire to make the next round. We dont seem bothered either way if we go through or not. Offering little going forward at the moment and nothing seems to be really working at the moment.

    Really cant call it at the moment could go either way.

    We have been opening, we have been attacking and this is exactly why he doesn't like doing that.

    The lack of attacking coherence is honestly terrible to watch, how the **** don’t we have a plan going forward...? -_-

    Outside of Bailly our backline is awful. And as soon as Pogba came on, our tracking back in midfield went to ****. Bailly was cleaning up almost everything back himself before the first goal. It was ridiculous.
