Down to 10 men, you lot are crazy.

Ole isn’t fantastic tho, admittedly.

Yes we are crazy for thinking 10 men including Ronaldo, Lingard, Pogba, Shaw, Varane wouldn't be strong enough against 11 man young boys.

Even more crazy for questioning Ole leaving Fred on for the whole game and taking Sancho off when the red card happened Laughing out loud

All the subs he made were mind-blowing

Never change Ole, never change Sticking out tongue

10 men against a team playing like it’s a champions league final

An 11 man Barca team including prime Messi got beaten 2-1 by Celtic at Parkhead in the champions league. That young boys team would beat that Celtic team.

Away champions league matches hit different

Tuchel and Lukaku getting it done in their opening game. Should have watched that over Barca game. Bayern didn't even need to get out of third gear to put 3 passed them.

Barca look so lost. Imagine trying to explain to someone watching them play for the first time that they were once the dominant force in European football

I didn't see the United game. Even being down to 10 men after 35 minutes is shocking with all those world class players. Too early to write them off.

Great assist from Lingard last night.

Ole again showing signs he's a PE teacher, playing Sancho out of position.

Prediction for the season is that Sancho will be a flop.

Agreed. But I don't even think they'd have gone in for him if they'd got Ronaldo earlier. My prediction however is that Rashford's performance will return and effectively will link up with Ronaldo like he did with Rooney, as he's the link between both players

On Sancho, might need the same adaptation period that some players from abroad do. Having Ole as a manager won’t help, but think people are just assuming that he should hit the ground running because English.

This season will show if Ole is out of his depth - United have made good signings this season, so there are no excuses.

Although benefit of doubt given for this Young Boys game.

Bellingham is so good. Mad to think he can’t get in Sir Gareth’s first team.

There isn’t much that’s more satisfying as a neutral than picking the right CL match to watch

(Lpool v AC Milan in this instance)

Was great to be back in the CL after 7 years, but that was possibly the worst match to welcome us back.

It could have been a debacle, actually it was as we have been outlpayed for most of the match, but it's great we tried to fight and resist and not just concede passively, returning home with a negative, but not too bad result.

Group remains tough and I'll be happy with a 3rd if you then play the EL to win it

Anfield was amazing last night, that 3rd goal was madness and Salah was penalty miss aside, pretty epic - his work rate is nuts.

Loving all this United chit chat by the way.

I could count the number of United posts in here during the Jose era on one hand Laughing out loud

Ronaldo scores again. Good return considering he is 1/3 the cost of Alex Sanchez and has as many goals as him in a United shirt already.

Needs to cut out the simulation. Shearer just called it "looking for contact" on MOTD2 but he's quick to call it blatant cheating for others.
