I've never in my life seen a United player scared of the ball before

Momentum is now completely gone. We only need a point at the King's Power but it will be quite an uphill task.

I don't follow football & United too closely lately, so I'm not sure why Chelsea is "out of the equation"?

They have 63 points as well and if they win their last game and united ties Chelsea would be on 66 points & United 64?

I guess I'm missing something as I saw two articles saying the same thing. "United needs to avoid defeat to qualify for the UCL"


What's the logic behind this???

Since we play Leicester leading them by a point, we only need to avoid defeat so they couldn't leapfrog us.

In other words, a win there would mean we'd end up in third for sure. Any other result would put us into a three sided equation with Chelsea playing Wolves at home themselves.

Untied win -> 3rd

United draw -> 3rd if Chelsea don't win / 4th if Chelsea win

United lose -> 4th if Chelsea lose / 5th if Chelsea don't lose

I get it now...

Not sure what I was thinking... :think: ... It's pretty late where I am... Hopefully, this is the reason and not age-related declining cognitive capabilities :laugh:

Does it really matter where we finish
Having watched United trying their best to beat a lowly West Ham,and failing
Then watching calypso style football that we used to play but is now played by Liverpool in scoring 5 in a game that didn't matter
Taking into account City get 75% plus possession in every game they play and the only weakness they have is centre half which they will sort out in the next few weeks it is safe to say that third is the best we can hope for
With the certain knowledge that now Abramovitch is interested again Chelsea will be spending and building we are in line for possibly but probably not 3rd and a more realistic 4-6th with Spurs,Leicester,Arsenal and us depending on who spends the least
A champion league spot this season will just mean European humiliation at some point next season
If we finish in the top 4 it will just mean more money for Glazer dividends and we finish out of the top 4 we can't spend as we have lost sponsorship money
It's a no win situation

When you factor in all the combinations of outcomes from the Leics v United and Chelsea v Wolves games, there are 9 possibilities:

In 5 of these United finish 3rd
In 2 of these United finish 4th
In 2 of these United finish 5th

This means statistically we have a 7/9 chance of finishing in the top 4..but football isnt played by mathematical formulas fortunately (or unfortunately!)

All the players need to know is that if we lose we're out, we draw/win we're in

Nothing complictaed
