Glad Utd got Barca. Belter of a tie. 

Utd going out obviously.

We all thought that about PSG.

Think the Semi's will be Pool, Barca City and Juventus

I'd have Juve as favourites now.

Utd should fear no one. Defeatist chat is nonsense.

Not fearing anyone but will need a good lead going to Barca for the 2nd leg. Huge game(s). Can't wait.

Utd aside, would love to see Juve vs Barca in the final. Last time Ronaldo and Messi may face each other.

I hope that doesn't happen, mainly for the circus that would go around it. Everyone would talk about it as the final decider of who's greatest. The actual game would be a belter though.

City fans have to be the happiest I would have thought. Avoiding the derby, LFC and Barca on route is a great chance for them to get to a final.

Utd Barca is a whopper. Great test for the manager. He’ll want revenge for his side’s loss in 2011.

Huge game.

on a personal level it’s Barcelona what Europe is all about for me , it was my first big united game in 84 when Robson had Maradonna in his pocket. Still that is the best atmosphere I’ve been involved in at united,  although young eyes might have given me rose tinted glasses. 

So many great and bad memories with Barcelona since that game, from getting thumped 4-0 at the nou camp, to the 2 finals we lost against them. Then the Semi win when we won it in 2008, the 2-2 draw in the treble season.

Then winning it in 1999 in there stadium, winning the cup winners cup in 1991.

I am sure this one won’t disappoint either, one way or another.

I remember the first final most of our media had man u as favourites. From memory both were very one sided.

I have no problem with city winning today, happy for them to play more games, but having VAR only in some FA cup games is absolutely terrible. Should be in all games or none.

Pity to see talented players like Sterling resort to cheating rather than winning through fair play.

VAR is certainly going to sort out a few divers next season.

People were giving him the job after 1 game. Lets see how things are in May. Still have to play Barca, City, Chelsea.

Utd were never in it. Wolves outplayed them 

Wolves had 38% possession, took the lead with 20 minutes to go. 

Wolves didn’t outplay United, they just did a lot more with the ball when they had the possession. 

Wolves deserved to win, thrashing is just over exaggerating as usual.
