Top five conclusions: Manchester United and Manchester City’s Champions League exits
1. The reporter in the video above is probably feeling pleasantly vindicated this morning.
2. It’s the same old story for Manchester United: a great team to a certain point, but they always come unstuck against Baselona.
3. A few media storylines about Manchester becoming the hotbed of elite football in England will have to put on hold for a little while. I believe London 2-0 Manchester was trending on Twitter last night.
4. Perhaps Fergie is, in fact, a tactical genius and has plotted his best possible chance of lifting the European Super Cup next season.
5. Mancunian civic pride could inject some excitement into the Europa League for the first time ever. Alternatively, Fergie and Mancini might race to see who can get knocked out of the competition formerly known as the Uefa Cup first.
