Firstly, where was this commitment and desire vs Liverpool and City at home? In fact, where was this commitment and desire all season long?
Great effort from United today, restricted the space and defended valiantly against a great side. Not only that, when we broke forward we countered quickly, though Welbeck's composure
if that was Rooney that would've been 1-0, sadly Danny's forté is instinctive finishing: When he has too much time to think, he fluffs his lines. Also think his disallowed goal was the correct decision.
Bayern showed too much respect to United tonight, Lahm, Kroos and Schweiny meant they were too focused on ball-retention, wanting to pass United to death by tiring them out, had they started with Gotze through the middle it would've given Carrick, Fellaini and Giggs something to worry about, since Fellaini let Schweiny go for their equaliser, and United's central defence and midfield aren't fast.
United did ride a bit of luck; Valencia could've been sent off for studding Boateng (they both went for the ball, but the guy clutching his leg afterwards usually wins the foul and the other guy gets another booking), and Rooney theatrically jumped over Schweinsteiger's challenge, that was a soft 2nd yellow card.
This was a very good performance from United, can they repeat it next wednesday? I'm not so sure, need to get Rafael, Evans and Smalling fit for the weekend to give our defence a rest, because Bayern can afford to rest players, with our injury problems we can't. Another problem is when Bayern failed to beat Arsenal twice and Man City at home, those matches were almost dead-rubbers, this match still hangs in the balance, so they won't be complacent, and we can't be complacent, and we'll need an away goal.
And another thing, those fans throwing paper at Neuer at the end were an embarrassment.
