The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are being awfully quiet at the moment…
After a tough season in the Premier League, their entire campaign has come down to one moment. One game. One period of 90 minutes.
It is unfortunate, given that seasons after often defined over the course of 9 months, but for Jose Mourinho, he has placed all of his eggs into just one basket – the Europa League. Often deciding to rest players domestically, Mourinho has seen the competition as the Red Devils’ only route into the Champions League next season – and has placed all of his efforts into it as a result.
So far, it is a tactic that has worked out well. Man Utd have impressed so far in the cup, having dispatched their competition with relative ease up until this point. Ajax, however, are a very different beast.
One of Europe’s most well-recognised clubs, they will likely pose a real problem for Man Utd.
Unsurprisingly, the Man Utd fans on Reddit are feeling pretty nervous in the lead-up to the game, with many focused upon just how important it is in the context of their season.
