PSG open thread

“Changes are being forced upon me, but it was always on my mind that I would look at this game and hopefully be in a position to rest some players that have had a big workload in recent weeks. That’s still the case, but winning the group is important to us.”

With the injuries that we at present, it does sound very much as though Hughes will be in experimental mood tonight - although he is keen to secure top spot in the group to assure an easier tie in the knock-out stages.

I still think we should have enough to get past PSG though - themselves fielding a weakend side, and maintain our 100% record and go for a 2-0 win.

As ever, feel free to post any news or comments before, during or after the game.

vote it up!

Traffic was awful, so decided to get the tram into Manchetser.....only for trams to be massively delayed, so back to the car.....

Wish I'd not bothered. One of the the most tedious, inept games of football I can remember.

We had the best of the first half (just) but it's saying something when you get more excitement out of watching the away fans than the football itself.
We were doing OK til the last 15 minutes of the second, and then we fell apart. We were lucky to draw. Very lucky.

Roll on January and new faces. I just hope we can pick up enough points between now and then so that we're in the top half of the table, otherwise who will want to join us?

Yours, depressed and cold of blah blah blah.
