    Football Club Rostov (Russian: Футбольный клуб Ростов, and nicknamed Selmashi or Zholto-Sinie - Yellow-Blues) is a Russian professional football club based in Rostov-on-Don, Rostov Oblast - playing in the Russian Premier League. Rostov was established in on 10 May 1930 as the team of the Rostelmash factory, and was initially named Selmashstroy (Сельмашстрой). They were renamed Selmash in 1936 and Traktor in 1941. In 1953 they became Torpedo before the name Rostselmash was taken up five years later. They stuck with that until 2003 when FC Rostov was introduced. Until the club's Russian Cup win in 2014 - defeating FC Krasnodar on penalties, Rostov had won no top division titles or major domestic cups - narrowly losing the Russian Cup final to Spartak Moscow in 2003. In recent years, Rostov have built a sturdy reputation under Kurban Berdyev and Ivan Daniliants - building a competitive squad on a strict budget. Rostov play their home games at the Olimp-2.

    Hope we can get a good result in Russia. We do not want to be going to Old Trafford needing a win.

    I think we have more of a chance of winning in Russia than we do at OT...

    Honestly don't care after today's game. Can't remember if I ever was so disgusted with the team that I didn't want to see them play.

    Can't wait for this game. The only tournament keeping me interested in United's season.

    Play a strong team and hopefully nick an away goal or two. From what I heard these guys are strong at home.

    From what is happening in the league and the points we threw then the real chance to play C.L football next year is by winning the E.L this should be our main trophy to win and the actual gate to the C.L. IMO we will not finish in top four AGAIN.

    Must win now. At the very least we need to leave Russia with an away goal.

    I fear this could be one of those ugly away games when everything goes against us.

    Just grab a nice 0:1 win or even a draw and come back.

    strongest team possible for this.
    Russia is a hard place to go and get a result, I would take a scoring draw.
    Hell I would even take a narrow defeat ( not really just pissed off with them right now)

    We can beat any teams in this competition even Roma so go all in. Play the strongest team. Makes it no 1 priority.

    Rest players, play Bastian, Fella & Romero in PL. ;)

    Micky has to play, Herrera also. Despite his shit show today I would play Jones again next to Rojo. Blind at left back.
    No Rooney.

    De Gea, Valencia Jones Rojo Blind, Carrick Herrera, Micky Pogba Martial, Zlatan

    1-1 and then hoepfully beat them at home.

    So still being in the FA-cup and involved in a top 4 battle isn't interesting at all?

    Young, Smalling, Rojo, Blind (if Valencia did indeed get a knock today)
    Carrick, Herrera
    Mata, Pogba, Martial
    Zlatan

    SUBS - Rashford (Martial), Fellaini (Carrick), Rooney (Mata)

    DISCLAIMER - I know nothing about FC Rostov; I don't recognise the names of any of their players, nor do I know their playing style. What I do know, is I have no faith in this squad going to Russia on a cold, dank weeknight and getting a result.

    FC Rostov 1 - 0 Man Utd (we'll win the 2nd leg and advance)

    Europa League is our way into the CL. I'm sure of it.

    Play a strong team. Would like to see Bailly, Herrera and Micky return to the line up.

    Lets be honest after today, I think top 4 is remote and FA Cup is away at Chelsea, I dont agree with him but can see his point.
    Yes, but we still have a chance and I find it a tad ridiculous to say you have no interest.

    They will be ultra defensive. I will take a 0-0 draw now with no new injuries
