Lille is the most annoying small team in Europe. They are worse losers than Arsenal, their football is less inspiring than Bolton's and their hypocrisy is simply incomparable to anything. United will host this team tonight and in the name of all Red Devils fans who were treated disgracefully in France I ask for a resounding victory.
Coach Claude Puel, goalkeeper Tony Sylva and striker Peter Odemwingie have all branded United as cheaters and confidently declared our goal was not valid. When they were proved wrong, they talked about injustice and how the goodies are done by the big evil baddies. Boring, really, and annoying, especially in the light of the treatment our fans received in France. Puel had the nerves to blame them for the trouble and not the police whose inadequacy was clear to see.
So guys, the job is there. Our progress is certainly sealed now: we have lost only one of our last 27 home games in the Champions League and the Reds never lost a European cup-tie after winning the first leg away from home.
United have a slender squad for the game, with Fletcher, Saha and Solskjaer all ruled out so it won't be easy. But I'd still love to see Lille being taught a lesson. They should be shown that they have no place in this competition and their pathetic moaning about the referee will not earn them friends and certainly won't earn them a place in the quarter-finals.
My attitude may not be greeted by assistant manager Carlos Queiroz who called for cool heads against a team who will do their dirty tricks we saw from them when they visited Old Trafford last time.
We are in front so we need a cool approach to the game,' he told manutd.com. 'We've got to control the game from the very first minute.
'We must make our Theatre of Dreams a nightmare for them.'
Well said, Carlos. Let's hope even Smudger will score one.
Match prediction: 3-0. We scored 3 goals in each of our home games in the CL this season and this trend should not be bucked.
