    Madrid were definitely coasting.

    Yeah I thought Mourinho, despite having been out foxed by Fergie over the tie, nailed it after the Red card. Decisive change to take advantage of the extra space in midfield made in seconds. Absolutely not negative.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Sport, I think it's time for you and deckard to crawl back under your bridge and carry on spooning.

    They were totally ineffective against Utd's tactics, to the extent it looked like they were coasting. Fact is, Utd were going through until the red card which killed the contest, so this stuff about Real being far better is bollocks. Utd were the better team over the two legs.

    @Blaketown Easy to be positive when you have a squad like Madrid's against ten men.

    And if my aunt had balls she would be my uncle. You dont know what would have happened. Jose could have thrown on Modric and he may have scored that peach against eleven men and with their tails up gone on to win it.

    There was over half an hour left when Nani got sent off, so anything could have happened.

    @nickthegun Opening line to your post is ironic considering you're the one guessing what could have happened 11 vs 11 and I'm the one stating the simple fact that Utd were going through 11 vs 11 and Madrid were struggling to get a shot on target.

    I know Utd aren't the most liked club, and even I found yesterday's events a bit funny, but let's not abandon facts to bash them even more.

    It's contradictory to point out your post is contradictory?

    How contradictory!

    Er, what's contradictory about it? While the game was 11 vs 11, Utd were winning 1-0 and comfortable against Madrid. It was only after the red card that Madrid came into the game. That's not rocket science..

    You can forecast what could have happened if it stayed 11 vs 11 but that's pointless. I choose to judge what happened before the red. Utd were winning the game. Maybe you're deliberately missing my point.

    United didn't lose because of an unjust red card, they lost because they didn't adjust well enough or quickly enough to the situation. Many teams can hold on or sometimes improve when down to ten men, even against a superior team. Fergie and his boys seemed far more interested in being outraged about a borderline decision going against them at OT than actually trying to get the most out of the situation they found themselves in.

    You called me out on guessing what would happen then go on to state as a fact that Man U definitely would have won had nani not got sent off.

    No, he pointed out that you did that by invoking the "aunt had balls" statement and then going on to claim she could easily have been your uncle even without the balls.

    @nickthegun All I'm saying is at 11 vs 11, Utd were 1-0 up, and were in a position where they were winning the tie. I've not said it would have stayed that way because its pointless guessing what would have happened if Nani stayed on. Anything could have happened after. I'm just commenting on what I saw up until the red card.

    You did. You stated it as 'fact' not once but twice.

    As much as i hate united, the red card did spoil the game. But i still think Real would of scored and we would of had extra time.

    LOL.

    There is a grain of truth to this. As I said before Mourinho acted quick and decisively and the game was over before the United players had come to terms with what had happened.

    But that all happened because of an unjust Red card so "United didn't lose because of an unjust red card" is a bit of a silly thing to say.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Absolutley this. The collective mental implosion really cost them. They completely failed to accept what had happened until it was too late.

    I would agree with most of the post but I think even calling the decision borderline is a bit mental.

    Point out to me someone who thought red on initial viewing and I'll show you a liar.

    Edit: Meant to add that even above considered, we didn't adjust well enough to going down to 10 men and Madrid made a very savvy change to switch things up.

    It is highly likely that Man U would have gone through if it had stayed 11 vs 11. BUT, Mourinho would have changed it anyway, they would have gone all out with 20 minutes to go, because they would obviously be going for the win.

    Would united have been able to contain them? Who knows.

    Fergie went mental and didn't react in the right way, he was too slow, he should have calmed the team instead of whipping them up into a frezy, they were still going through after all. Mourinho reacted perfectly.

    The red card was harsh, but I have seen them given for less, its not that mental a decision, it was a flying kick FFS.

    That Madrid team has match winners all over the place. I would have preferred it to stay 11 vs 11, but it made for a great finish!

    Thats exactly my point. See all the qualifications I used? 'Could' and 'May'? What the hell is wrong with you?

    I'm guessing you don't know what the phrase "if my aunt had balls she would be my uncle" means then.

    That's fine. Carry on.
