It was of course a midweek to forget for Manchester United supporters as they saw their Champions League qualification hopes crash and burn out in Wolfsburg with the German side going through alongside PSV Eindhoven.
In a group that also contained CSKA Moscow, for a club the stature of United, they should’ve really been bossing that group despite Louis van Gaal’s claims that it was always going to be tough.

Although many argue that playing on Wednesday – Saturday rotations in the Champions League is exactly the same, shifting to the Thursday represents a change to the usual routine and the troubles this has caused teams on Sunday is well documented.
