    Whenever the caf is feeling pessimistic and are adamant we're going to lose we actually tend to do well. Get in!
    Also, I'm not eating during the match today. We always underperform when I do that. I made the mistake of having a pizza during the Copenhagen match and we almost lost.

    Ole will be glad to know I'm taking this match seriously.

    This is the sort of game tailor made for Rashford, he should tear them apart. Given the stylistic changes we've gone through the season, this will ultimately be a very competitive game. They are a very very good side as Roma and Wolves can attest to. Don't think anyone should forget that if it all goes pear shaped.

    One thing, if Utd do win this game I think people need to give Ole and the team far more credit because from what I’m seeing and reading everyone is saying Sevilla are the fantastic. For what it’s worth I do think we could struggle tonight but that could just be nerves, we do have the firepower to hurt them.
    Personally, I think Sevilla are a very good team not fantastic. What worries me the most is we don't seem to playing well the last games.

    Can you go on hunger strike until we sign Sancho too please.

    The last time we faced Sevilla...and lost 2-1.



    Remember Mourinho's presser after the game. "I sat on this chair with Porto and knocked United out. I sat on this chair with Real Madrid and knocked United out. So this is nothing new to this club." The fecker! :mad:

    We're a completely different animal now. We'll win this easy. 3-1 United.
    To be fair, Sanchez, Lukaku and Young will be playing in the other semi-final.

    Romero :( I feel sorry for him. He really deserved to start this one.

    Good line up, though. Fred’s pressing will be much needed.

    Harsh on Romero. He’s done nothing wrong & deserved to keep his place.

    I get the feeling our boys will somehow look way more fatigued than any other team in the world. If I were Ole I would focus most training sessions on fitness/stamina. They can all play football, surely, so maybe it's best to make them the fittest team in the league.

    It's what that legendary Bayern Munich manager did at many clubs to great effect. Can't remember his name but he was an epic drinker lad.

    I just hope we put in a better performance than we did in the last game against Copenhagen. Everything else will be a bonus.
    What, with the 26 shots? Yup, awful performance. If it hadn't been for their goalkeeper putting in the performance of his life, it would have been comfortable.

    You did watch that game, did you?

    Sevilla at evens to qualify seems like a really solid consolation prize.

    Ole only puts more pressure on himself by starting DDG, only has himself to blame if he drops another clanger. Nothing against DDG but Romero deserves to start this game, what's the point of this change.

    Fully expecting Fred to get pressed and lose it in front of our back 4 resulting in a goal.

    Not confident about tonight at all.

    Matic should have started ahead of Fred but otherwise, pretty much our best lineup.

    Start strong and we'll win. We have better team than them. Just need focus and conentration.

    Glad to see Ole is trusting Fred a lot more. I'm sure Ole already has it on the back of his mind that Matic won't be able to play every game this season and trying to get Fred to adapt properly as part of a midfield 3 with Pogba and Bruno. The McTominay experiment didn't work.

    I hope the faith by management for DeGea is repaid tonight. Fred for Matic a strange one, the rest of the team as expected.

    Ah God, if DDG makes a mistake tonight then I dread to think of the backlash.
