BLOODY HELL YES!! i woke up about 0411(GMT +8) for a piss and we're 1-0 up. then PSG scored and i thought fuck it, i'm going to bed. woke up about 0700 (GMT+8) and a notification from the news says "united through to quarters..." and i was thinking "fucking hell no way".

the teenagers played well. they we're lucky PSG's shots didn't end up in the back of the net as well. and for once, i'm thankful that pogba didn't play because if he was on and that penalty was given, boy i'd be having a heart attack.

I followed it live on one of my apps (no video, just a live commentary feed)  and as it was hitting 90 minutes I'm thinking dammit...we aren't going to pull this off.  Then 3 or 4 minutes into stoppage time PENALTY TO MAN UTD pops up and I'm thinking no fucking way....so for the next 3 or 4 minutes I'm staring at my screen and pacing like I'm waiting for my third child to be born urging the scoreline to change from 2-1 to 3-1 and sure enough...GOAL Rashford pops up and I couldn't fucking believe it.

Nobody gave us a chance before this leg...I mean NOBODY.  10 men on the injured list and 10 men who have been legit first team starters under Ole (with the exception of Sanchez), 2-0 down from the first leg and playing in Paris for the second.  This was damn near a reserves squad.  When I saw Lukaku put the first goal in after two minutes I though ok...we came to play and we've got a shot here. 

I can't imagine how any Ole doubters would not be completely silenced at this point.  No longer can they claim "we've only played poor competition".... "it's still a honeymoon phase"...."if it weren't for De Gea"..."any manager who isn't Mourinho could have came in and done this"....etc...

The way Ole has this squad organized and united (no pun intended) is amazing.  I can't see him not getting the job at this point.  Sure we still have work to be done and we could use a world class signing or two but what a turn around we have made.  So good to see.

OGS is being used in marketing material for next years season tickets and his new contract with Molde (signed in September and lasting three years) has magically disappeared. It’s a done deal I reckon.

Oh nice, sounds like it is a done deal indeed.  Well deserved. 

Also, so nice to see Lukaku in beast mode again.  Of course it's good to see every player at Man Utd playing to their full potential but so good to see Lukaku get that confidence back.

With all that being said though, PSG have really made a habit of choking and under-performing in the champions league.  It poses the question...are they really that good?  Are they as good as we think they are?  Sure they tear it up in the domestic league but let's be honest, Ligue 1 isn't exactly the most competitive league in the world.  The second place team in League 1 has 54 points which would put them in 7th place if they were in the Premier League.

This ^ exactly! If Pogba was stuttering and prancing up to the ball I wouldn't be able to watch (great player under OLE though) :-)

^pogba is a great player. probably not a penalty taker. freekicks, sure. but not penalties.

With all that being said though, PSG have really made a habit of choking and under-performing in the champions league.  It poses the question...are they really that good?  Are they as good as we think they are?  Sure they tear it up in the domestic league but let's be honest, Ligue 1 isn't exactly the most competitive league in the world.  The second place team in League 1 has 54 points which would put them in 7th place if they were in the Premier League. 

hahaha they don't call it a farmer's league for no reason. they're definitely a good team. but it just shows that money cannot buy success. i honestly did not write them off for the second leg. improbable but not impossible.. i predicted a scoreline of 2-0 at the parc. 3-1 close enough. through on away goals rule..

Nice to see Liverpool making the last eight. Not so happy to see Barca there as well but let's hope one of the four remaining English teams solves this problem :P.

Very happy camper here to see Bayern out. So sweet. Any nice facial shot of Messrs. Hoeness and Rummenigge on this occasion?

the return of english football perthaps? depending on the draw tomorrow. there could be 2-4 teams in the semis at this rate... it's been about 10 years maybe? that we've had 3 teams in the semis...

I was thinking the same....is the pendulum swinging back towards the premier league?  I feel like it is.

i would love to see 4 english teams in the semis, just like 08/09 for the sake of english football. hoping the draw tonight swings our way.

One English team in the semis is certain, I assume it's going to be Citeh. If United and Liverpool advance there will be one PL finalist for sure.
