So it came to pass – Manchester United failed to reach the Champions League for the second time in three years. Confirmation was delayed by 48 hours, but Manchester City’s draw at Swansea all but guaranteed the Blues a place at the top table of European football. Despite beating Bournemouth on Tuesday, Louis van Gaal’s side is out: of time, of the Champions League, of credibility.
United had to beat the south coast side 19-0 on Tuesday and for 45 minutes it looked as if the season might end less with a bang than a Van Gaal-inspired whimper. The Reds at least rallied to offer long-suffering supporters a modicum of entertainment in the second period. Ed & Paul cover all the drama on Sunday, with United’s match called off in farcical circumstances, as well as the hastily rearranged match on Tuesday.
