and why wouldnt he be excited at the Solksjaar goal? That was an incredible footballing moment, lol. Thats completely over the top to expect him not to be caught up in the moment like everyone was. Just like most people were caught up in the moment in 2005 in Instanbul when Liverpool were outplayed for 110 of the 120 minutes of that match against AC Milan but people still were excited and effusive with praise, despite the luck that Liverpool rode that day?
This United team is not good enough to do damage in Europe. I guess you can say they could get a lucky draw like in 2011, but I think the midfield would foul them up against the like of Valencia and Juve (well Juve is kind of a favorite for the title imo, so I take that back), Dortmund, and even Porto. They may win the league because its become clear that you do not need a good midfield to win the premiership but they will be found out in Europe.
