Bayern Munich Knocks Manchester United Out Of The Champions League
businessinsider.com ^ | Apr. 9, 2014 | Tony Manfred

Posted on 04/09/2014 2:42:22 PM PDT by Berlin_Freeper

Bayern Munich advanced to the Champions League semifinals with a 3-1 win over Manchester United in a wild game at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

After a lackluster first half, the goals came one after another in the second half.

...Wayne Rooney was a non-factor, and clearly wasn't 100% healthy after sustaining an injury in last week's game

This is the last we'll see of Manchester United in the Champions League until at least 2015-16.

Does this mean their coach of less than a year will be fired?

He’s definitely riding the hot seat. But I would wager that Glazer will try to get him some players, first. Maybe one more year.

It was a night crying out for a Manchester United hero, someone to drag them out of their mire of mediocrity, an occasion for someone to pull them out of the long siege of Munich and produce something extraterrestrial in Bayern Munich’s spacecraft of a stadium.

They had been looking at Wayne Rooney to deliver perhaps the greatest performance of his United career, to conjure up one of those magical moments that might see their team land one of the greatest victories in the club’s long and distinguished European history. Alas, it was not to be.

I believe he signed a long term contract.

Moyes hints at transfer agreements following Manchester United's Champions League elimination

Manchester United manager David Moyes has hinted that agreements are already in place to bring new players to Old Trafford.

Moyes denied his job was on the line after the Red Devils were knocked out the Champions League by Bayern Munich, and suggested he already knows that players will want to join the club even without top-level European football.

He may have signed a long term contract, but I was reading article a month or so ago, that he could be fired.

Personally, I think it would be stupid to fire a coach in such short order. There was bound to be a let down period after a quarter century coach leaves. (No expert on soccer, but I think this applies to all sports)

Interestingly Moyes was hyped early on as “The Chosen One”, chosen by the old manager to take the job.

I’m an Everton man and all I cared about was how Arsenal choked against them on the weekend. 4th place and they’re in.

I hate everyone. I taped the match and stayed away from all news so I wouldn’t see the scores and thought I’d check here and I could be safe....

one of the most disappointing nights in Wayne Rooney's long career so far

Wayne Rooney left to mourn crucial chance that got away

This is what Moyes needed. Someone to make a hero of himself, someone to write his name into the folklore and fabric of United’s great history.

Moyes has refused to put any blame on star Wayne Rooney after the striker missed opportunities

The only true constant in football is that rumours will fly and speculation runs rampant. Moyes, in a roundabout way, has now become the cat in Erwin Schrodinger’s theoretical experiment. No one really knows if Moyes managerial life at United is either alive or dead.

Fellow Everton fan, here.

The draw is in...

Chelsea - Atletico Madrid

Bayern Munich - Real Madrid

I predict it will be Atletico vs Bayern in the Final.

What’s funny is that Atletico’s goalkeeper is on loan from Chelsea...Usually it stipulates in the loan agreement that a player will not face the team that loaned him out, so I wonder if that will apply.

It does, but UEFA is trying to arbitrarily alter the loan contract terms.

The whole concept of loans, I have to admit is weird.

Everton’s success this season is mainly due to the players they got through loans.....they’ve got a challenge replacing them if indeed they do get into the CL next season.

I was 4-for-4 in the quarterfinals, though perhaps not so close on the score lines.

I think both of these pairings are toss-ups - Bayern still have to be the favorites, not just as defending champions, but with no domestic competitions causing them any distraction, but it’s also hard to bet against Real Madrid. From a fan’s perspective, I expect relatively high scores, with Bayern taking the tie 5-3.

Chelsea have the edge on Atletico Madrid in depth and experience, and having the second leg at home is a big deal, as Chelsea have done just enough in each round to advance. They’ll do it one more time, 3-2.

I think it’s Atletico’s year. I see them winning La Liga, and this as well. Although I’d have to favor Bayern in the Final.

Bayern’s been sleepwalking a bit lately, it gets boring when you win the Bundesliga with a month and a half left in the season. But I still see them as the team to beat.

I really like Munich. Spent a lot of time there. Good people all around [Wolfgang Rudell, and his family are GREAT people].

I don't care about their football (soccer).

"The draw is the draw," the Catalan told a press conference. “But Real Madrid are a tough draw. I know their team well.

Manchester United count cost of Champions League exit
For a brief moment in Munich, Manchester United dared to dream.

As it was, that hope was gone in 60 seconds of Patrice Evra's goal and United were instead left to consider a very different reality.

Sport Football Manchester United talking sport 620 David Moyes embarks on mission improbable
"My focus is on getting a side together to get back in the Champions League."

Moyes could hardly have said anything else. Part of his remit is public tub-thumping and putting on a brave face as he starts the greatest overhaul of a United squad since Sir Alex Ferguson broke up the drinking culture at the club in the late 1980s.

Moyes must replace Nemanja Vidic, who will leave in the close season, plus Rio Ferdinand (probably) and most likely Patrice Evra – a big void to fill. He has also to add at least one European-class, game-shaping midfielder.

Manchester United to install beds at training ground for sleepy players
It’s tough being a footballer – getting paid millions of pounds to kick a ball around for a couple of hours each day, before playing one or two games a week.

But it’s about to get an awful lot easier for the hard-working souls at Manchester United, after the club reportedly gave the go-ahead for a sleeping area to be built at their training ground.

Rooney to 'miss rest of the season'
Manchester United are considering resting Wayne Rooney, possibly for the rest of the season, as he recovers from a chipped bone in his toe, according to reports.

Rooney needed to have a pain-killing injection to play in United's 3-1 defeat to Bayern Munich on Wednesday, manager David Moyes said.
