Reactions to United’s draw with Bayern Munich

1. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, you always fancied United to pull off a result, even if all the odds were stacked against them. This season things have been different.

PICTURE: What did Guardiola want Rooney to do?

With just minutes to go in in last night’s 1-1 draw against Bayern Munich, Bastian Schweinsteiger was sent off for a second yellow card for a foul on Wayne Rooney.

Would Moyes get more time at another club?

Manchester United fans stuck with David Moyes for longer than they probably should for fear of “doing a Chelsea”. The west London club have regularly sacked their manager and this has been widely criticised.
