    I forgot Mata is not eligible :(. It would of been nice to have a similar lineup from the weekends game minus fellani and young.

    If Moyes starts Fellaini as a CM in a 2 man midfield, we should fire him immediately.

    The lineup matters very little. This game is over before it starts.

    I really think people are writing this off before it's even begun..

    But I believe the tie will throw a few surprises and could be much closer then it's made out to be..

    Usually games that are leaning heavily towards one side turn out quite different.

    Who cares about that shit? I want to see pain on moyes' repulsive face and the only way to accomplish that is through a humiliating defeat.

    Bayern will have to hit into double digits to really impact Moyes' career. No one expects United to even be competitive, so a 3/4-0 wont be sufficient.

    I'm quite aware of moyes' protected status, regardless of results. All I want is to see him suffer.

    You think the players would ever "take a dive" in this series to get Moyes sacked immediately?

    I don't think a professional would ever try to do that.. I doubt any player would willingly give up a CL game anyways ;)

    This is a team who beat Barca 7-0. If I were a Bayern fan, I would be disappointed if they did not win by at least 10 over the 2 legs.

    Don't think it will be blowout. I can see United pushing Bayern even though there is no reason Bayern shouldn't win but I wouldn't be surprised to see it as a balanced enough contest in the scoreline. This Bayern team is still learning to play to Pep's standards and although results have favored them there have been enough examples of teams that can push and how to push them. Hoffenheim this weekend, Mainz the week before, Arsenal to a degree.
