    Yeah. I hope they get beaten by the man and not the reputation though. Barca can be beaten.

    Semedo in the Starting XI according to Marca. Utd has a big chance to exploit in Barça's left wing...Valverde is making a big mistake by not fully trusting S.Roberto.

    Also, I doubt Coutinho will be worth shite. I predict he'll be the first to go (min 60-75).

    4-3-3 with Dalot as RW or 3-5-2?Will be interesting to see how we line up....I think it could be a 4-3-3...

    I think the gulf in quality is bigger than in 2011. Could be the last CL home match this decade

    Really wish I was there tonight. Went to the semi in 2008 when we beat them 1-0, would love a repeat of that please.

    Genuinely think it could be about 0-6 if Barça want to turn up.

    We need plenty luck today that's for sure plus our concentration levels need to be 115% for the entire 97 mins

    Herrera and Martial injured? Did Ole said something about it or it is just tactics?

    6-0 is a bit harsh yeah, I do think Messi can cause absolute havoc though.

    If I was feeling mighty low I’d support two clubs.

    Fair enough

    We lack that X-Factor talent to carry us, unfortunately

    If this is the so called all conquering barca, then we really do have a different level of league.

    Utd have been pretty much in control without scoring.

    English CL winner this year imo

    Barca were poor but still won easily enough. We're still in the game but if you offered me a score draw over there I'd almost be tempted to take it rather than risk a hammering. Almost, but not quite!

    Barca resting pretty much all their first team, Ter Stergen and Umtiti start. Messi / Suarez not even on the bench

    Expended a lot of energy in that match, hardly ideal preparation. I do wonder if Matic might go straight back in to the first team if fit as a pair of fresh legs, Mctom too. Dalot at RB and Young at LB?

    Since Luke is suspended and we have no other LB, I would prefer we go with 5 at the back.

    De Gea
    Smalling Lindelof Jones
    Young Fred McTommy Dalot
    Pogba
    Lukaku Rashford
    Don't think we have much of a chance. Barca rested nearly their entire 11 for the game today. They'll be fresh and rearing to go.

    Going for 1-2 and the players to go down in folklore. Quite an achievement considering every single player on our books is apparently shite.
