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.

It will be staged at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, with an 11:00am start time scheduled."
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.
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 clubs long and distinguished European history. Alas, it was not to be.
I believe he signed a long term contract.
It seems Sir Alex is much missed.
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.
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....
This is what Moyes needed. Someone to make a hero of himself, someone to write his name into the folklore and fabric of Uniteds 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 Schrodingers theoretical experiment. No one really knows if Moyes managerial life at United is either alive or dead.
