Good Omens

Good Omens

If anyone is a little concerned that things might not go well tonight and we could, heaven forbid, be looking at a place in the Europa League, we`ve a few, just a few mind you, stats to ease your worries.

Discounting that dreadful night at Wembley, United are unbeaten in their last 8 Champions League away fixtures, if we can keep the sequence going we`ll be through.

The referee, Bjorn Keiper, has refereed us one in European competition before and on that occasion, back in 2009, we trounced Wolfsburg 3-1.

Our hosts tonight, Basel, have a miserable record against English opposition having won only 1 of 12 games.

Feel any bett rnow?

You couldn't even buy your trip to the knockout stage! Couldn't have asked for an easier draw and you bottled it.

Philly, were you born an idiot? You've just seen your team got knocked out of the Champions League and the first thing you do is head on to VMU to gloat about how we got knocked out of the Champions League. You've talked about buying our way through when to date City have bought the FA Cup and their route into the Champions League in the first place and despite spending hundreds of millions more to challenge in the Champions League you got knocked out at the first hurdle. Like I said VFL get a grip mate.

Cheers Famous, but we kind of expected tonight, ie we'd beat bayern, but the hapless Villareal would get turned over by Napoli. United have merely softened the blow of our exit by tripping up in the easiest group in the history of the Champions League. Trick is, we know that united in the Europa is something of a victory for us anyway - your entire fiancial well-being is predicated on getting as much prize money as you can from the Champions League, and the Europa won't exactly provide you with the same revenues. Tonight really has hastened your decline, as you're not going to be able to attract the players you need in January (that's if you can afford them), and I'm quite hoping we get the chance to destroy you in this particular competition as well. In the words of my mate Walter (Sky sports' City fan on the 6-1 demolition), TAKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well , well , well..I have 2 words to say about this one...SURREAL and wonderful to have United out of the CL....and to see the CAPITAL OF FOOTBALL OUT with their noisy neighbours out too. One thing is certain, we will be seeing United and City continue to spend in the January window and no longer will we being seeing them criticise Chelsea for spending.. becaus ethey will be doing it too..after United have already spent £50+ million in the summer. I will say one more thing...maybe YOU SHOULD HAVE PAID SNEIJDERS HUGE WAGES lololol olol

Let's see, my club gets knocked out of the CL and the first thing I do is go to a rival's site and taunt them for being knocked out of the same competition!!!!!

Actually Johndoe, I type with all 10 fingers, and am quite literate - I've already posted about 10-12 messages on Vital City, facebook and Twitter. Don't flatter yourself that this was my first port of call.

Slur to retire at the end of this season after we've knocked you for 6 (see what I did there? :P) in the league, destroyed you in the FA Cup and knocked you out of the Europa as well? Can't wait.
