When they did try press after Fellaini came on, they left space behind for Rashford to exploit when chasing the 2nd ball (knock downs from Groot and Nose). Not sure if this was a purposeful tactic employed by Mourinho, as he has gone direct before just as a last resort, but it most definitely curbed Anderlecht's increasing domination of the game.

    The longer United stay in the Europa league, the better for the current top four. However, United could have the last laugh if they win it. Having watched the other teams play, Lyon and Ajax look like the teams that United need to avoid in the semi-final draw.
    Have no idea why Utd are favorites
    Imo we the weakest of the remaining 4

    So real v atletico and juve v monaco tbh the juve monaco mach appeals more to me than the real atletico game .

    Super happy we managed to avoid both ajax and lyon in the semifinal draw but vigo won't be a pushover as well we will need to work hard and take our chances.

    Rumours are that Howard Webb managed the logistics behind the Europa draw.

    Haters will say the above is fake news.

    Just annoys me that once we got past the group stage, we had to play Augsburg, United themselves, Dortmund, Villareal and then Sevilla. Meanwhile they've only had to play St. Etienne (fair enough, same level as Augsburg), Rostov, Anderlecht, and now Celta Vigo.

    Has a bit of a strange smell to it...

    It's common knowledge that United have corrupted the top echelons of EUFA. When a club has as much money as United do, it's their most important objective. Just look what happened when Howard Webb retired. Directly correlates with their decline in premier league performance. They have now struggled for a number of years to find a corruptible senior ref.

    Really hope Juve can pull it off and win it all...would be awesome for Italian football in general.

    A Real Madrid vs Juventus final would be great but let's see.
