Just about made it...
Wednesday 24th May. United away team.
Expect even more of a defensive display seeing as we'll be missing our best center backs.
Well both teams who made it just about scraped through.
Manchester United schedule
14 May - Spurs (A)
17 May - Southampton (A)
21 May - Crystal Palace (H)
24 May - Ajax (N)
14 May - Willem II (A)
24 May - Manchester United (N)
It will be a shit off.
Ah feck sake. We're in a European final. Okay not the one we wanted to be in but it's a European final. Let's enjoy it.
So Jones and Smalling pairing or Smalling and Blind? The Eric Bailly red was the stupidest mistake we could have afforded.
Ajax are good at attacking but terrible at the back. We can win this
Tbf I think I'd prefer 4 in 10 than a game 10 days away. Southampton game could be good prep for the final first team.
Ajax are barely average at any position but striker. We can score goals.
We'll surely play the reserves in the last few games.
Ajax just nearly bottled a 3 goal lead, also had a player sent off.
We can definitely win this.
Problem is we've picked up a few injuries of late.
Smalling-Jones v Spurs and Southampton, then final.
Just win it somehow. I don't care.
Prepare for the biggest snorefest of the season.
Fellaini to win it with an overhead kick in the 93rd minute. Written in the stars.
No Baily Rojo or Zlatan.
Just praying for no more injuries and our centre backs to step up.
Play like the second half tonight and we're getting pumped.
Phew, very close for both teams.
See you in Stockholm
Rest everyone in the remaining league games.
6 at the back again. Can't wait
Ajax have 2 important games. We have one.
Jones and Smalling at CB, and Martial replacing Lingard.
Ajax were horrible today too, shitfest upcoming!
Yeah, we looked great tonight for doing just that.
Wrap Smalling and Jones in bubble-wrap please. Would rather Blind be at LB and have a proper fullback out there.
Smalling and Blind would be my pick based on their partnership last season
Yup. Enjoy it before it starts.
Play the kids in the remaining league games. Make sure we get no more injuries...
Forget the league. Play the under 21's if need be and rest everyone for this final.
I hate when we play the final in away colors
No Bailly or Rojo
Come on United! Incredible that we made it.
I expect us to play just as bad as tonight but, so long as we get the win at this point, so be it.
Bailey will be a huge miss for us and has taken the gloss of the final for me (i know i know) but if there is one player i would not like to see miss a final its him. Now we'll have Jones or Smalling play instead... yay
True true. We just look so leggy.
This is exactly the underestimation that we should watch out for.
I honestly think Sanchez is a better defender than Smalling or Jones, Ziyech has an amazing passing ability and Onana is a ninja in goal.
We have to put pressure ourselves because apart from Sanchez their defense isn't the best.
I just remembered how not nerve-wracking it is being shit.
I can't look forward to this. We have been dreadful recently and we need some Ibra magic to save us.
I guess I'll feel better tomorrow but feck, we can't keep letting shit like today happen all the time.
Never seen a single Ajax game this season. How have they played so far? I know they aren't afraid of scoring goals. Are they better than us?
What's the chance that the red gets rescinded? he did feck all to earn it.
