Who's got the advantage now?



  • [*]We're at home in what should be a rousing atmosphere.



    [*]Its 0-0, so a 1-0 will send us to Moscow.



    [*]Barce could nick a goal early on and shut up shop.



    [*]Could end 0-0 and go to dreaded penalty's.



How do you see the 2nd Leg going?

i'm way to unstable to get this thing in my head now, but i hope our defence will be just as good as it were today, just that our attacking could be better and the trio Tevez-Rooney-Ronaldo should work.

we have to bury them at old trafford. today we wasnt playing at our natural tempo. we were sluggish and playing to match there speed. which is WRONG. when they come to OT we have to play at premier league tempo. i assure u, they will not be able to cope with it !

The fact that we didnt score tonight makes this game 100x harder.

We have to outscore barca which is no easy thing to do, and when we play as shocking offensively as we did tonight it'll be very, very difficult.

I just hope we ATTACK STARIGHT FROM THE WHISTLE. No sitting back or any of that rubbish. We need to get at them, get an earlyish goal then push on even more and get another.

Fully agree that when we play at our natural tempo Barca will not be able to cope. Maybe fergie got it right and has lulled them into thinking we're just hype.

That wasn;t man utd and when we reveal our true selves at OT, I do not believe they can cope. On today;s performance, a 0-0 draw wasn't a bad result and I think we could nick it at OT.

i think we can cope their attacking, and they can cope ours actually.. i hate these games, by far the best 2 teams in Europe, this games should have been the final.
I personally hope for Nani on the left, Ronaldo on the right, and then just push, push and push, when they play with 4-3-3 they are sooo much space on the left and right.

We made it very difficult on ourselves with that performance tonight IMO.

That was as good as time as any to beat Barca who were very low in confidence entering the match and were also without there best defensive player. Not to mention by the time the 2nd leg comes around Messi will probably be 100%, as will Deco. We just gave what was a very talented team in crisis a chance to re-build. I don't feel comfortable at all with this tie.

Well said.

Bottom line is, outscore Barce!

i don't know, i mean we have a slight advantage, but we HAVE to SCORE. And when we try score we might be vulnerable on the CA. I feel if we score two early on goals then Moscow, here we come.

The tie is far from over but I would have liked us to get the away goal, If they score first then we will need a Performance of a lifetime to turn it around, but if we get it then hopefully that will be enough.

I so hope it doesnt go pair shaped in the next two games or the season will be seen as a failure, overall we have it in are own hands in the league and in the champions league.

we are worrying now but they will be dispelled if we win on tuesday and then we can say job done we are in the final, it could have been a lot worse.
