Champions League Winners And Losers

It was a frustrating night for Chelsea, but a 1-1 draw away from home in the knock-out stage is not to be sniffed at. Plus, more misery for Moyes and Manchester United...

While Van Persie throwing a bit of a strop is not exactly A1 behaviour, I think Moyes and United as a club were delusional if they thought that the deifying (if that's a word) of Wayne Rooney wasn't going to have a huge impact on morale in the squad. They have rewarded selfishness and ego so expect to see a lot more of it. I completely disagree with the "if United lose to ... Moyes should be sacked" opinion. One game should never decide whether a manager stays or goes. But, anyone who has watched United all season and believes that Moyes could still be a success is kidding themselves.

@solkjaer99, let me get this straight, Moyes out, but you don┬┐t trust the board to appoint a worthy successor, and Charlton and Fergie can be wheeled into the senior persons suite and not allowed to contribute. Who do you expect to make the appointment? Just. Wow. You really are becoming a parody of yourself. He is all yours Harry Boulton, I dont how you deal with that as a Man U fan.

German league sucks! And we all know it by now after recent couple of years of romanticizing it. It's just another La Liga. We all wanna cheer for the underdogs like 04 and Leverkusen but the way they lose is just embarrassing.

United should sack Moyes NOW, instead of after the second leg against Olympiakos. People may say Moyes should be given the chance to turn things around in the second leg. The point is, after what he has "achieved" since the start of the season, it is clear that he won't be able to turn it around (in fact, it could be another loss at Old Trafford). United has nothing to lose, and nothing to win in the remainder of the season, so why not give another person a chance (whoever it is, be it temporary like Giggs, Meulensteen or Philan, or a permanent choice if United can get one now). If this person fails it won't be his fault, if he makes it, we could see an unlikely turnaround like what Roberto Di Mateo did with Chelsea. The most important thing is it gives the players some hope and new impetus to fight for the remainder of the season. How sad it is to say United "have nothing to lose"!!!

solskjaer99 (Manchester United) says...

@HarryBoulton I've been right all along, I should be happy about this, but how can I be when United are so utterly dreadful? You are right though, I am a winner. The worry is that I don't trust the board to appoint a worthy manager of United after Moyes. After all, these are the men who 'unanimously' appointed Moyes, their judgement must be utterly appalling. One rule should be made though, when the inevitable time comes and a new manager is being selected Ferguson and Charlton must be excluded from the decision making process, they're the ones largely responsible for this calamity. We are definitely in 'we thank him for his hard work at the club but...' territory now.

May I suggest, Matt, that you add your name in the losers' section for that sorry piece on the message Real's attacking trio left for the chasing pack? Humiliating; "Toddles"? Really? Embarrassing.

Does Stanger realise that RVP has started every game for which he's been available?

HarryBoulton says...

You missed solskjaer99. Shouldn't he be in the winners this week? He probably feels like a winner, anyway, seeing as Moyes made a right mess of it again.........

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
