    He keeps the ball out of the net, I don't argue how he does it when it works. He's certainly unorthodox, but so was Schmeichel in his day.

    Kagawa's 60 minutes were the best he's had in a United shirt.

    He has a pretty darn good reaction speed, that's for sure. He's only a bit weak on things like corners, he doesn't dominate the box enough and often makes mistakes trying to hit/punch the ball away.

    He is probably the best shot stopper in the world though.

    I don't expect us to win this, yet this is the most enjoyable United game I've seen all season.

    United are playing some of their best football, and getting challenged by a World class team. Soon as the fulltime whistle blows, I'll be counting the hours to the replay.

    That is one of the finest saves I've seen De Gea make. Absolutely insane catch off that deflection.

    Ronaldo really hasn't been a factor in this 2nd half or am I just seeing things?

    Jones and Carrick have been critical at shutting him down.

    God Sergio Ramos is a such a dislikeable person.


    Let's keep it civil please, remember the rules in the OP.



    Edit: My bad just that's the 2nd yellow we have gotten cheaply because of him.



    This ref.... blows the whistle while we are taking a corner...

    I say this as a Spaniard, I completely agree with you.

    Also, fantastic result for Utd.

    I'm going to sum that last moment up with one word.

    Bullshit.

    Can't believe he blew the whistle on a corner.

    I swear that referee is biased against united.

    Not going to entertain conspiracy theories. I think overall he had a pretty poor night though, guy's trigger happy with that yellow.

    De Gea had a great match. Hopefully it's something to help boost his presence and confidence.

    Wasn't it a French ref? Or am I misunderstanding something?

    And yeah, ending the game just as United are gonna take a corner was absolute bullshit, but I've seen it been done before in other games.

    Still can't believe RvP missed that chance at scoring, he must be kicking himself! (hopefully better than he kicked the ball).

    So Dortmund escape Ukraine with a 2-2 tie. I don't think it will matter much but 2 away goals certainly help. Scahtar are capable of winning away games so it will be an interesting second leg.
    It's coming in 1.2!!!
