Yes they only reinstalled Guardiola with 88 minutes on the clock.

BT Sport were trying to convince me Man Utd put in one of the best performances of all time with not a shot on target.

It's - 1

That should go on to say:

It is -1 in April, Brexit has been delayed until Hallowe'en.

You could not make it up.

The world has gone mad, Mac.

-1 in April. BT Sport announcing that Man United played well even though I thought I saw the Barcelona goalkeeper doze off at one point. Spurs on their way to the CL semi-finals. smiley - sadface

And now I have a feeling that 2-0 isn't really a good win. smiley - grr

Let's face it, with our woeful away record Napoli are probably hot favourites to advance to the next round. smiley - grr

And they'll feel even more confident after next Monday when our away record gets even worse. smiley - grr

Two away games mean this will be an absolute disaster of a week.

We should have been going there scoring about 84. smiley - grr

84-0 would have given us a 50-50 chance of qualifying. smiley - grr

Jack, Deeney is going to destroy us. smiley - grr

That was my thinking too, Mac. smiley - grr

But, in the end, he gifted us the three points. smiley - laugh

What a Grade A clown. smiley - laugh

Having said all that, we still weren't very good in yet another away game. We will be destroyed in Naples. They won't have anybody in their team on the same intellectual level as Deeney.

It'll be embarrassing. smiley - sadface

Hilarious after saying his tactic against us was to whack the first one and see who is up for it. smiley - laugh

Thursday will be terrible, we will lose our lead two minutes in to the match.

How sick is it that I can't even take the p**s out of the United supporters in work because I know we're going to get an even worse hammering in Italy? smiley - grr

I'll tell you how sick it is, Mac. Very, very sick. smiley - grr

I can't even raise the topic of Messi v Jones because you can guarantee that our players will be humiliated even more by Napoli. smiley - grr

Okay, so basically the Gods have decided to go for maximum cruelty this week.

I mean....you've gotta be kidding me. smiley - grr

Spurs. In the Champions League semi-final. This is preposterous. It's like seeing a list of the greatest albums ever and discovering that there's an Atomic Kitten album up there with Sergeant Pepper and the other usual suspects. smiley - grr

How can this happen to a club so terribly, terribly wrong? smiley - grr

They now get to play a bunch of teenagers for a place in the Champions League final. smiley - grr

Besides, they were played off the park. They were lying on the pitch crying because it had all slipped away. And still they got through. smiley - grr This is quite possibly the worst thing that has ever happened. smiley - grr Our inevitable hammering in Naples probably won't be as hard to take. smiley - sadface

Guardiola can go to hell. smiley - grr

Jack this might be the week football was broken.

What are the Gods up to? They must have completely lost their minds because I can't see how they've letting Spurs be in with a chance of the final what with no league title since 1961. smiley - grr

Jack, a thoroughly professional performance.

However last night means that preventing Chelsea from reaching the final now rests in the hands of someone I have mentoned on these hallowed pages before, an unlikely hero.

Adolf Hutter. smiley - erm

I concur, Mac.

smiley - grr

Emery picked a stupid team and as soon as I saw the line up I told my daughter we were going to lose. She didn't actually care much but I had to tell somebody.

When Jenkinson and Elneny are in the team you know the manager is underestimating the opposition. Mustafa may have been culpable on the pitch but Emery is even more culpable. I've often thought he was overdoing the resting and rotation of players but I also figured they'd at least be fresh for the vital last few games. But here we are in those last few games and he's still rotating. Is he trying to keep them fresh for the close season. smiley - grr

Emery has effectively just cancelled St. Totts Day.

McNamara That Ghost

Yes Jack when you're in April, what exactly are you resting them for? Even weirder when we were already without Sokratis, Ramsey and Xhaka.

Utterly daft. I just hope he realises our squad is nowhere near good enough to do that again.

Well Mac, I guess we knew that the Gods were just trying to mess with our heads last night but to no avail. I think it was obvious all along that Spurs would score a late winner. There's no way they can fool us with tactics as lame as that. smiley - grr

And so to tonight. With half the world agog with what's about to happen in the Manchester derby (and whatever happens will be bad for Man U smiley - laugh) we'll be worrying about Arsenal's away form against a Wolves team that always plays well against the top 6 and no doubt we'll be mystified as to why Emery leaves all our best players on the bench in order to keep them well rested and in fine fettle for their two weeks in Ibiza in July. smiley - grr

It's going to be a nightmare. smiley - grr

McNamara That Ghost

Jack our only hope is that we play enough as a pub team, that Wolves confuse us for a bottom 6 team as they are hopeless against them.

On Spurs, I allowed myself to get drawn in to thinking Hughton the Tottenham Patsy could orchestrate them holding on for six more minutes. smiley - grr

Screw everything, Mac.

That was unspeakable rubbish. smiley - grr

I can't even mock the United fans over yet another defeat and Roy Keane rolling his eyes at Gary Neville on Sky as they discussed the level of crapness of the current United squad. smiley - doh

We're still rubbish away. So much so that we effectively have no chance at all of avoiding defeat in Leicester. smiley - grr

I don't know who's finishing fourth but you can be sure it's not us.

McNamara That Ghost

Jack an old friend, a true Arsenal collapse is upon us again. smiley - grr

Man Utd can't even score a goal at the moment and yet we are not in a position where we can really laugh at them.

It's not on. smiley - grr

Mac, we're so dismal that it's gone beyond being preposterous.

3 games in a week. 3 defeats. 9 goals conceded. smiley - grr

We are out-ManUniteding Man United. smiley - sadface
