      Know you didn't ask me but it's an interesting question, if we had Rashford here I reckon we would want 80-100m for him, more because of his potential than what he has shown.

      The way the market is today I think more. Not saying that is right but it's just the way it is these days, crazy crazy money for players.

      I couldn't bring myself to value him over 100m but it is plausible I guess, where do you rate him at then?

      How do I rate him? Home grown talent which as you probably know are always the best, but that's just my opinion. He's got what it takes to become world class and progressing nicely. Scoring that penalty (( which wasn't)) at such a critical time shows he's not only got the nerve but a cool head on his shoulders for one so young.

      What's he worth? Well if your asking me I don't think your not far off with your guesstimation of £100 million. However you just know in today's market they may get around £140 million. Being home grown though I just can't see him leaving any time soon.

      I'd put his value at approx. £80m, he hasn't done enough yet to boost his value much higher than that but as you say he has bags of potential, could become one of the great strikers for you guys.

      He isn't bad for a 21 year old though is he stuey, what's he honest worth in your opinion?

      The mad carry on with PSG after the gutless display last night will see them throw mega money at what they see as the problem, just the scenario that would see crazy money being offered for Rashford.

      Purely coz the potential is there they would offer well above 100 million.

      Hmm maybe, but I doubt it, then again the market is fu**ed up these days who knows. Its a bit academic anyway as I'm sure he'll be with you guys for years to come.

      Thanks pal, haven't got my head round it yet. Didn't think we could beat them with a full squad let alone a depleted one. What ever Ole using on his players should be bottled and sold.  ;D

      From the 11 minutes of highlights that i saw, last night was more about gifts from PSG for the first 2 goals than anything United created. Maybe the highlights do not tell the whole story, but what i saw was PSG in possession and creating most of the chances. Not that OGS hasn't done a good job, but last night was more about PSG f**king it up than anything else.

      Yeah I don't think I'm usually biased but I do think that if you could replay yesterday's game 10 times, the mancs would win it 1 or maybe 2 times at most. Was just one of those games. The first 2 goals were absolute gifts. And the third, while I do think that it was a penalty was in a way also very lucky.

      Funnily enough, I actually thought yous lot had a relatively decent chance going into that game. Every team has their faults and weaknesses and IMO, PSGs biggest weakness isn’t a lack of ability in certain areas, it’s the amount of arrogance and complete lack of respect they show to other teams, probably because of how easy they have it in the French League. Could see straight away, even from the warm up that they thought they had the win in the bag already. They went into that game with no respect to you lot. It sharpened them up a little when you opened the scoring but as soon as they made it 1-1, that was it, game over as far as they were concerned.
      Then they obviously resorted to the same old bullshit they showed against us - rolling around and trying to con decisions.

      I hate you Mancs, no two ways about it but I love the way PSG ended up going out, couldn’t have been much sweeter...just a shame it was you lot that done it.

      I think its a luck potion, Solskjaer has always been lucky as a player and manager, apart from his time at Cardiff. Honestly all 3 goals were incredibly fortunate goals, the first one was just a brain fart form the defender but good reaction and finish from Lukaku, the second was a very very  very rare mistake from one of the best goalkeepers who has ever played the game and the third quite simply wasn't a penalty.

      In fairness I did not watch the whole match so can't comment on the defending and overall performance by Man Utd but fair play to them, they keep bucking the odds.

      Just seen the score - holy sh*t! Good v evil...and good won out!

      Really? You obviously didn't hear the songs their fans were singing. Something eerily similiar to what we've had to tolerate on a regular basis, much closer to home.

      Real are in transition, and a lot of patience is needed to turn things round. But patience has always been notoriously short, and the results of the past week mean it's just got shorter.

      Quote from Shabs
      Sorry but that’s a dubious penalty..

      F**k I’d hate us to be at the end of such a contentious decision..

      Much as I hate seeing the mancs given penalties, it's a clear handball in the box, and therefore the decision is standard. The sheikhs on the take openly called for VAR to be introduced after their side conceded a penalty at Real last season. The ref then made the right decision btw.

      Now they have VAR, but Neymar still isn't happy with the call. It is clear PSG players don't have the bottle to win it. No amount of oligarchs can buy it or coach it, the player either has it or he doesn't. Sure they'll swamp St Etienne aside and tear Toulouse apart every week, but most coaches with their resources would. Like Blanc and Emery, Tuchel was appointed to win this cup, and therefore he has failed. If they can't finish off a tie at home with a 2 goal start against an unseeded team, it's not the refs fault tbh.

      Clear handball??? Oh come on now. I'll agree that the ball brushed his elbow on its way into row Z but clear handball when he had his arm to his side and back to the shot?? That's nonsense. Clear handball is where there is a deliberate movement of the hand towards the ball, that was not the case here.
      To put it in other terms all strikers should be doing from now on is shooting the ball at defenders arms rather than the goal, they then earn a penalty and a better chance of scoring.
