But United is all about winning the league, not the Europa. We weren't trying to win the Europa. We only gave a shit about it because it allowed us to do what we failed do in the league and that's enter the CL.

It comes down to this, would you rather finish the season 2nd, 4 wins and 7 points off the champions or 6th, 12 wins and 24 points off but have the Europa League in the bag?

In terms of progress, in terms of building for the future, I'd much rather finish 2nd. Then you're going in to next season thinking we can genuinly challenge for the title. You clearly have a plan, a top team, a way of playing that works - you just need to add one or two players and you can challege

Winning europa means fuck all. We beat the 13th placed La Liga in the semis and a bunch of quality teenagers in the final who play in a much weaker league. Doesn't prove anything.
Ok it was Sid
This bit is key - not when you've spent most of the season 16 points behind :))

And the next sentence - what plan. We have no style.

I got that wrong tbf

City getting behind so easily. We'd be mad not to start Martial or Rashford next week.

Nico Kovac as new Bayern manager...bit of a surprise, that one. He's done a fair job of turning Frankfurt around, but the Bayern job is a big one. Body language from Heynckes didn't look that convincing either when he was talking it up.

Ref awards a penalty after blowing for half time:



The use of this VAR system is mental.

Innit. Prem clubs have voted to reject its use in the Prem next season.

Napoli with a great win at Juve, a fucking brilliant header 1 min from time after dominating Juve the whole game

That means the gap at the top is down to 1 point

If Sarri wins the title should seriously consider him at United because his philosophy is United through and through

Innit. Juve almost put Madrid out of the CL but Napoli dominated them all game with a proper controlled attacking performance. Juve played for a draw and shit out.

It's hard not to be excited by the prospect of Sarri ball done with better players.
