United 1-2 Sevilla: 3 Things We Learnt At Another Semifinal 'Bus stop'

 Manchester United joined her sister Manchester club on the same flight out of Europe after suffering a déjà-vu defeat in the hands of Sevilla.  Here are 3 things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from this crash out: 1. HOPING FOR A MIRACLE How Olè watched United struggle for 85 minutes without a head way before making the first substitution was shocking. It felt like he was hoping for a miracle!  Rashford had no business continuing into the second half and Ighalo had no business on the bench till the 93rd minute. No tactical change for 90 minutes!! Olè was a spectator tonight. 2. THE ROMERO NEMESIS. Sergio 'Odeshi' Romero has never disappointed United. Why Olè keeps dropping him at crucial stages of the cup competitions is baffling.  The same goalkeeper who has played an entire Europa league campaign up to the final and won it, was dropped for a semi-final. 'Maka' why??.  It appears that each time he is dropped, it backfires. As it was against Chelsea, so it happened against Sevi

United 2-1 LASK(Agg 7-1): 3 Things We Learnt As United Booked a Semifinal Spot.

Manchester United progressed into the quarterfinals of the UEFA Europa league after beating LASK at Old Trafford, setting up a clash with FC Copenhagen.  Here a 3 things #ManUtdNaijaFM learnt from the clash at Old Trafford: 1. MATA= FANTA + ALOMO BITTERS Juan 'Bankole' Mata had a good and bad game last night. Most times, he was the only player on the pitch who looked capable of creating something but his final balls were awful back to back especially in the first half. He however made up with the 2 assists for the 2 goals of the night.....fulfilling his name 'Bankole'.  2. FRUSTRATED IGHALO Our own Odion Ighalo was consistently frustrated last night by the Mata-Lingard-James trio playing behind him. Creativity was zero.  Their combination to create a goal was like a Naija man attempting to make eba with ice block and garri!! 3. THE WORST OF JAMES Daniel 'Osondu' James continued his decline in form and confidence against LASK. He was at his lowest ebb last night
