Bayern Munich 2 United 1

This was always going to be a tense encounter. United have never kept a clean sheet in Germany, the only win against Munich came in THAT came 11 years ago and the old England v Germany rivalry is always exciting. However, by the end of the night I was nothing short of distraught. The loss, in stoppage time, and the injury to Rooney could well shape the end of the season. It really is squeaky bum time now.

United 4 AC Milan 0

3-2 in the San Siro was enjoyable, but this was immense. United tore Milan to shreds in a cauldron of anti-Glazer protests, and sent two powerful messages to the rest of football; without Ronaldo we can still be successful and sell up Glazers, you are not wanted.

AC Milan 2 United 3

Before last night I had seen United three times in the San Siro; two losses against AC and a draw against Inter, without us scoring in any of them. And then, like London buses, three goals come along for us at once. I know the second  leg is yet to be played and we are far from in the draw for the next round, but this was a huge result under enormous stress and pressure that should be milked for all it is worth.

Wolfsburg 1 United 3

When the draw had just been made in August, most Reds were looking at the fixtures and choosing Wolfsburg as the one to go to, with many also hoping it would be a dead rubber tie. Yet, as United never do things the easy way, we managed to throw away two home games to mean this game actually did matter in terms of winning our group. So off we headed at 4am to Stansted airport to catch a flight to Hannover, all hoping that we could even get a place at right back in the absence of any defenders being fit.

Besiktas 0 United 1

I always remember watching reaction to the 1995 Champions League draws where United were matches with Galatassaray for the second year running. Fergie looked straight down the camera and said “We’re going back to hell!”. 14 years on and there I was deciding whether to book flights to Istanbul at great expense, which ultimately I did. The Besiktas fans don’t have the same psychotic reputation as their close neighbours from the Ali Sami Yen, but we knew it would not all be fun whilst there, especially when United’s advice to travelling supporters read: “The seats allocated to United fans are in a corner of the stadium and many of the seats suffer severe sight-line restrictions due to Perspex sheeting running from the top to the bottom of the sector. It is also fair to say that the seats themselves are not what United fans are used to. There is one male and one female toilet at the top corner of the sector. The toilets are clean but the WCs do not contain a porcelain bowl and are more of a traditional Turkish style.” Read more
