Preview:

There is nothing we can do about the week we had. In the first leg when the chances came we missed them and that Dalot header is something that we can't afford to miss at the camp nou.

We made some changes against West Ham and in the end we were lucky or quality paid off. We probably deserved a result from the Barca game more than West Ham.

Going to Spain is not going to be easy but Ole did it as a player and now as a coach he hopes to do the same.

In the last 16 we saw alot of results turned upside down. This Barca game can be a spring board for the rest of the season.

Smalling refusing to apologise to Messi might just be mind games. Of coz I remember Harry Kane saying smalling was his most difficult opponent.

We got to play with a very high intensity. We need to score 2 goals and restrict them to at least 1 goal.

Stop Messi and you stop Barca. I don't care what happens but maybe we made Barca look like a normal team due to our way we played after we conceded.

We can't waste crosses like the first leg. This is more than a free hit now with Herrera gone we need to get midfielders who want to play in that champions league.

The midfield worked in the first leg but the attack didn't. I don't know about the Young issue whether we play him on the left back or right back.

I'd go with the last midfield we played with and just go out and enjoy the game and play with the same intensity we played with as we have been doing away from home.

It's about how much we want this game if we want it more we can win as it is a cup. Competition that's all it comes down to.

Player to watch. : Tony Martial. Wasn't fit looked sharp against West Ham.

DDG

Dalot. Smalling. Lindelof. Rojo

Fred. Tommy. Pogba

Lingaard. Rashford. Martial


Subs. : Remo, Lukaku, Young, Matic, Jones,

Prediction, : Away win 1-3. Man. Utd to prove PSG. Wasn't a.fluke and. Continue there magnificent away form in Europe.

we can beat Barca easily a coz they are shitty

We have the goal machine that is Lukaku and we have a defence that Messi is frightened of coz Smalling gave him a black eye and so Messi is now a shitting it player in a shitty team

My forecast.Unite to win 3-0

Messi, Suarez, Rakitic and more ruled out due to injuries. Fingers crossed we show some better performance than this weekend against Hammers.

Manchester has emptied
There are rumoured to be 12,000 United fans heading for Barcelona many without tickets

You can get to Barcelona via Majorca for about £30 i believe
Problem is that there are no flights back soon so many are making a long holiday of it

Seems that the traveling support may have a few problems, this was sent to me by MUST

Safety Advice for Supporters in Barcelona

Following the accusations of improper conduct and alleged unprovoked attacks on fans of other English clubs by Barcelona stewards, M.U.S.T has worked with the Club to try and ensure our fans have a better experience. Recent communication and planning helped ensure our trips to cities such as Seville, Paris and Turin - where other English fans had been subjected to bad treatment - passed more favourably.

M.U.S.T gathered information from other English supporter groups as well as other European fan groups through the FSE. These were passed to United in advance of their visit to Barcelona and have resulted in better planning. Outcomes include 25 search lanes for our fans instead of the usual 5. These will be monitored by increased numbers of observers from United, the FA and Uefa. Similarly United are sending out a much larger staff contingent to handle the ticket collection too, given the larger than normal away end.

However, we would still encourage supporters to arrive earlier than you may usually do, given the numerous stories of problems accessing the stadium and several instances where Barcelona appear to have changed the agreed plans and access routes on the day.

We are also conscious that the large away allocation may mean that some travelling supporters may not have previous experience of policing and security that is very different from away matches in England. Please look out for your fellow supporters and help each other.

And enjoy the day, the match ……… and the victory!
Past performance says there will be problems, and that the Spanish Stewards and Police will be looking for trouble, and certain groups of fans will give them cause to treat all fans the same, so I think a crash helmet and body armour will be needed for this one !

Messi was non-existent in the first leg after Smalling murdered him, I'm surprised he is still living !

They have plenty in reserve despite losing these three, ( if it is all true), but then again Messi is a bit of an icon and it is fair to say they are a beatable without him, we can only hope.

It will take a similar effort to the one in Paris, but it can be done.

I wouldn't bet against it happening

Just had a phone call from Barcelona
Touts are asking £600 a ticket to be on the fourth tier with the United fans
Nobody is paying
Most have just gone for a piss up
Good luck to them

A few muggings,as expected in Las Ramblas last night
Pat Crerands son had a knife put to his throat and a demand for his Rolex watch to be handed over
He gave it to them and they ran off
He is gutted as he only bought it on Saturday.
Mind you he only paid £20 as it was brought to him from India
It is a snide.Somebody is going to be upset :laugh: :laugh:

Young misses a tackle, Jones backs off, and Messi cuts in from the right and scores.

Ashley Young is shit on the right as a right footed player, so why put the useless birth canal on the left

And De Gea chooses tonight to fornicate up !
