    A huge crowd of 408 for the top of the table clash, but a difficult night for the Countrymen.


    Hallam 0 - 1 Campion

    Last home game on Saturday, then two away games to end the season. Bit gutted, but hey, my second team should have a semi against Barca to come. : )

    Well done Ajax. Fully deserved win, by all accounts.

    Ronaldo walks off, no handshakes or anything....AGAIN. Messi is ten times the player and man that he is.

    Back to Ajax, because I think they were hard done by with the final commentary. There wasxa lot of 'Ronaldo is out of the competition' which is ultra insulting to Juve and Ajax. Once again Ajax had more attempts then Juve and from all accounts outsmarted them in every area.

    Yeah, Ajax were way better than Real in the quarters, and from the handful of clips I've seen from tonight, it was the same again. Comfortable in possession, super slick passing, simple goals.

    It's the kind of form that deserves a trophy. I'd like the CL to go to an English team but Ajax have a shout.

    Dependent on the result tomorrow there will be no weak teams left in the competition. Tough to call.

    That's a pretty pessimistic view looking at Cardiff's remaining fixtures.

    It's not something you hear when talking football in mid-April, but it's early days where relegation is concerned.

    SteveS1 I heard that, pardon?

    Pretty grim run of late, not all over yet.

    Proof, not that it was needed, that the club need to invest, sadly the Glazers don't go full tilt unless United don't make Champions League. .. maybe no top 4 will be a blessing.

    Utd were good in the first 5 minutes. After that though they were woeful. Hopefully the abject nature of their playing will continue against Everton at the weekend.

    After such a positive start, it was disappointing to see Man U lose so convincingly. After De Gea’s fumble, I switched over to watch Ajax come back and outplay Juventus. Ajax’s excellent midfield should give either Man City or Tottenham some tricky matchups in their semifinal.

    Hope LFC gets an early away goal tomorrow, and can coast to a win. Somehow I doubt that will happen though.

    Terrible mistake from De Gea for Barca’s 2nd goal though. United looked good for the first 10 minutes (Rashford inches away early on) but as soon as Young gave away possession and the rest of the defence back off leaving Messi all that space to do his thing. Pogba looked almost uninterested - his form seems to have dipped since OGS got the job full time. A coincidence?

    Lose to City at home and there’ll be some questions asked about whether it was correct to give him the job.

    Have you looked at our fixtures?

    Wolves (a)
    Spurs (a)
    Newcastle (h)
    Arsenal (a)
    City (h)

    We need 4 points from that lot.

    Yeah apologies for that - I must have been having a senior moment.
    I was actually looking at Cardiff's remaining fixtures and convincing myself that they were Brighton's!

    Wolves have slipped up a few times against teams below them so you might get a point there & a win against Newcastle is more than possible.

    Looks like the jewels of '98 are tarnishing their legacy - Scholes can't adhere to pretty strict non-gambling policy and Nicky Butt has been arrested for allegedly assaulting his partner. Whatever next - Alex Ferguson turning a blind eye to Jaap Staam using performance enhancing drugs?

    OGS won’t be manager by the end of next season. Emotion over mind appointment. He doesn’t have anything like the experience to turn Man U around. They are a shambles. I’m delighted.

    btw I wanted Mourinho to stay as he was doing an excellent job screwing them up.

    You are right unfortunately. They put him in as caretaker when they had a pretty easy run against mostly relegation fodder, with a couple of really good results in between. This seemed to be enough for the club and supporters to hail him as the next messiah, and proclaim 'ole's at the wheel'.
    What now though? They've installed the following-

    1. Ferguson's choice.
    2. The thinking man's manager - total football.
    3. The most prolific manager in modern times.
    4. A club legend.

    Nothing has worked, could it be <shudder> the club that's the problem? In the mid 80s you couldn't see past Liverpool dominating 'forever', ten years later they were finished and it's taken a long time to get to where they are now. I've been vilified left, right, and centre for suggesting Man United's time finished 5-6 years ago.

    It's a shame, and I'm torn because Ole is a genuinely nice guy; the only player I had any time for in that era (apart from Darren Fletcher perhaps) and I feel bad for him if this behemoth of a job consumes and spits him out.

    We all know how this plays out...

    1. Ferguson's choice.
    2. The thinking man's manager - total football.
    3. The most prolific manager in modern times.
    4. A club legend.

    Sorry, couldn’t resist! :D
