Despite the sensational headline, of course Jose is gunning for both. That’ll make sure the team are in Champions League next year.
Anyway, we beat 19th place Middlesbrough 3-1 for full points away from home and old rivals Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City are all dropping points.
It is confirmed today that we will meet Fenerbahce, Feyenoord and Zorya Luhansk (Ukraine) in the Europa League’s group stage this season.
I am not really excited for this cup which we are participating twice in past 3 seasons. First and foremost, there’s no way I can watch it from my country because no local TV would want to take the broadcast rights. Second, because it’s a “second-rate” European cup. Although, a win means a trophy. I’m a slut, so I’ll take it. 🙂
This draw is pretty special though for ex-Red’s favourite player Robin Van Persie, who helped us getting the #20 EPL medal, as he returns to both Manchester United and Feyenoord. I am sure he will be welcomed in Old Trafford by the home fans.
