We really need to build on this. And I know people will say otherwise, but we are quite a good team when we focus. We can potentially challenge for the title (might not win it, but we can really have a good go).
We cannot feck it up next game in the league, as it is a completely different ball game. You get hustled a lot more in the league.
Fantastic display especially given that we rotated quite a lot. All of our strikers bar Cavani got a goal. Pogba and Bruno with assists.Clean sheet. A Cavani goal and Van de Beek assist og goal would have been the icing on the cake, but can't complain with a 5-0 win against the current top team in the Bundesliga.
Pretty certain someone pressed the fast forward button on Martial, forget the goals, his pace and ambition was why we bought him. Enjoyed watching him tonight. Fred v good as was AWB. Nice to see the old us again
When it started I though we were going to get a footballing lesson, but thats got to rank with our best wins ever. The press wrote us off saying we wouldnt get out of the group stage. 2 wins in the back to back and were home and dry. What a win!
It was a strange game. It felt like Leipzig dominated the ball for much of the match but when you think about the saves De Gea made they didn’t create anything. Then when the subs were made we absolutely dominated.
Magnificent result, what a cameo from Rashford.
Shows an actual strength in depth now, for many seasons now us going two goals up the subs would mean the introduction of non-creative squad players on as substitutes and the game would fizzle out.
What can I say, a great european night at OT again.
Gotta love the negativity in the Match Day thread at halftime For the record, I rate Nagelsmann and I don't rate Ole that much, but today, the latter schooled everybodys darling. Leipzig were pretty mediocre overall, didn't really create anything and the fabled Upamecano-Konate central defense conceded 5! goals.
Also our squad depth seems pretty decent all of a sudden.
Great performance, Rashford of course MotM, but can't really fault anyone tonight.
asked for a tagline change and all I got was this.

OMG! What a result!! I thought we were tad worse compared to PSG game but quality of opposition attackers too was worse than vs PSG and they weren't creating much. Fred passing frustrated me and kept thinking for most of the match how great it would be if Fred could pass. Then Sir Marcus arrived on scene and changed the whole game
Gave them way too much respect that first half and it was kinda annoying. They were wide open enough for us to play our game and we did that second half. So so much better. Must have been a solid team talk.
Brilliant performance from start to finish and Ole got it spot on. Delighted for Rashford and great to see Martial and Greenwood with goals too. Hopefully we see Greenwood back in the starting lineup now with James well and truly banished.
