 Man Utd v Juventus
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Tue 23 Oct 16:32

No doubt about the most attractive game (imo) of tonight's CL card. The best team in Italy v the 10th best team in England......

Who to cheer for? That is the question. In the red corner, the Surly One, hated by everyone, blamed for everything, not backed by his board and let down by his players.

In the black and white corner, the most loved and hated club ( in equal measures) in Serie A. They've come a long way since being forcibly relegated and stripped of two Scudetti in 2006, for their major role in the Calciopoli scandal, in which referees were selected for Juve games by their general manager, Luciano Moggi, because he knew they would favour his team. They're currently leading Serie A and going for their 8th Scudetto in a row. ☹

It would be easier to cheer for Man U if Mourinho wasn't in the dugout, but even so, I can't find it in me to cheer for a club who won God knows how many titles by systematic cheating. Here's hoping for a good game, otherwise I'll switch over to Barca v Inter. No doubt who I'd cheer for in that one.

Ajax v Benfica is tonight if you fancy a bit of old school European Cup stuff.

Utd will scud Juve 3-0 . No worries .


I really admire your super optimism, Wheelie. No less than I would expect from a big team fan. ☺

I've a hunch it's going to be a lot harder than you seem to think. Much as it pains me to admit it, Juve are a decent side, even without CR7. Their fans believe they can win the CL this season. Man U will do well to reach the last 8, imo.

Ooft! Just clocked Jose in the dugout. Looks like he's attending his own funeral...

I'd rather watch Midsomer Murders than watch the bus parked again.In saying that I could be doing with an early night so might tune into Old Trafford for 10 minutes to set me on my way.

On second thoughts with Lindelof and Smalling at the back we could see a few goals here.

Well that's the 3-0 prediction burst.

Not related, but Hearts 0-2 up at Dundee, with hone team missing a penalty.
Jimmy Mac has his work cut out for sure.

Apart from a 5 or 6 min spell just after the half-hour, it's been men against boys. Here's hoping Jose can inspire them at half-time but he has his work cut out.

Juve are a team of thoroughbreds.

It wasn't so much that they got beat, Widders, but the manner of it. I haven't seen a Man U team outclassed so royally since Barca took them apart in two CL Finals in 2009 and 2011. ☹

The attacking flair they were so renowned for under Fergie is now a distant memory. I don't mind Man U but they need to get shot of Jose. He strangled adventurous, entertaining football in favour of cautious, safety first tactics.

Oh and remember it's not very Christian to gloat. Give yersel a yelly. 😃

Forgive me GG... For I have sinned.
Nah stuff that... As a Liverpool fan I have the right to gloat when that bunch get beat.
Agree about Moaninho though... He's no so special these days.

Man U fans must be sick that their City rivals got Guardiola for manager.

I'd be lying low for a while if I'd posted that.......☺

......and not just on this thread, either.

Maybe Wheelie will be back with a revised prediction for the return match in Turin?
