That last 5 mins was brilliant to see. First time since Fergie we have seen us go got it - it was exciting and we got the reward. With all the negativity, Utd are well placed, and let's be honest it wasn't always great football with Fergie. Very good result given the injuries and players missing. Making progress.

Pretty tame stuff from both teams. It would be nice if we played with a tempo faster than 'wander'.

Some shocking distribution too.

If we were a half decent team we'd have put this game to bed a while ago...PSV are very average at best, we are woeful!

...sooner LVG buggers off the better...dull, dull, dull!!

At least Rooney once had it. Fellaini never had it. Shocking performance. No invention, pace, penetration. Keeper not even made 1 save.

Rooney lost it ages ago...big mistake making him captain, he's leading by example and, as such, the whole team is garbage!

Tepid stuff, making very hard work of a rubbish group.

Again, English football looking very average these days.

Woeful. 90 minutes played with less passion than a pre-season friendly. 10 minutes left and we've got Rooney at left back hoofing it up to Fellaini.

So I guess that's us in Europa then. Absolutely no way I can see us going to Wolfsburg and getting 3 points.

Wish I'd watched The Apprentice instead of sitting through that second half to be honest!

I extend our invite we've already offered to Arsenal to join us...

Sundays are going to be chocka...

I learnt my lesson quite a few games ago not to watch Utd, but I thought I'd heard you were better on Saturday?

Can't really think of any positives - if we somehow win in Wolfsburg then it'll be a great night, but completely unrealistic at this stage. We've not been good enough in the group, and don't deserve to progress.

I hope to Christ LVG doesn't approach the Europa League like Sir Alex did a few seasons back - I want absolutely no first choice players even thinking about those games when we will still have a massive fight on in the league (maybe for the title, more likely to secure a top 4 place).

With the other three English teams very likely to be in the knock-outs then we can't afford to be distracted by the Europa League, even with Spurs and Liverpool still in there.

I paid £40 for the privilege of watching that. Absolutely awful stuff. Painful and embarrassing to watch. If we get through we're going to be destroyed by the likes of PSG, Real and Barca.

Security at the ground was incredible. Several spot checks with hand held scanners just to get to the gates, then every fan frisked before getting in. And PSV still managed to set a flare off in the away stand.

We have really advanced under LVG. Spent multi millions & look like a two bit conference team. I have no idea how those in charge can't see after 18 months or so, what most could see in a couple at the start of the 2014/5 season.

Those in charge will be perfectly happy, you're in the top 4, you're in the Champions League.

$$$

They were never bothered before when the fans showed dissatisfaction. They don't seem inclined to be swayed by the fans at all, so I doubt boo's at full time bother them.

LVG on the hand, will be good value in his next press conference.

Unless there is a miracle we won't be making much from the Champions league.

That was before the father popped his cloggs.

The only thing LVG is good for is a ticket back to Holland.

The thing that frustrates me is that there doesn't seem to be any purpose when we have possession. What is it for? Are we pulling the other team all over the pitch? Working our strikers into positive positions? Because it feels like we're just keeping the ball and hoping the opposition make a mistake.

And when they don't, we lump it to Fellaini.

Wonder what Giggs thinks.

I would hope inside Giggs is as infuriated as I am with the way Utd play these days. What Scholes said sums it up for me!

You've already made approximately £40 million just getting to the group stages. The BT deal was huge.

every time Fellaini comes on and goes up front, a little part of me dies...
