  1. ‘You have to give him the job’

    Paris St-Germain 1-3 Man Utd (Agg 3-3)

    Solskjaer has now won 14 out of 17 games in all competitions, his only defeat coming against PSG at Old Trafford in the first leg.

    Appointed only as caretaker in December following the sacking of Jose Mourinho, it now seems a case of when, not if, the club’s former striker will be appointed permanently.

    Stoke midfielder Charlie Adam said on BBC Radio 5 Live: “If he has not got the job tomorrow then there is something wrong. You have to give him the job.”

    Larry: Utd fan here. Never a pen in a million years! If that’s a pen then we’re in for serious problems in prem next season!! We are through though, bring on quarters!!

    Sana Hashimi: All the fans of Man U and pundits are talking about how man u are back. They played horribly the whole game. The only reason they won was because of mistakes by PSG.

    Steve: No utd fan but it was a pen, he jumped turned his back and opened his arms expanding his reach. PSG manager saying it was no pen as it was going over is in denial of what a penalty is and should be focusing on why PSG were allowed to be so complacent

    Oh how different the outcome could have been…

    In the interest of not getting embroiled in a full-on VAR debate (because we all love those), get in touch with your thoughts on what went down last night.

    Was it a penalty? Should Solskjaer be given the permanent job? Can United go on to win the Champions League?

    Non-United fans: feel free to share your thoughts too!

  15. ‘It’s what we do, that’s Man United’

    Paris St-Germain 1-3 Man Utd (Agg 3-3)

    “That’s the Champions League, it’s what it does,” caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted after the historic win.

    “It’s this club, it’s what we do, that’s Man United.”

    Solskjaer is used to making an impact in the Champions League – he famously scored a late winner for United in the 1999 final, of course.

    But it turns out he’s pretty nifty in charge too, presenting a persuasive case on why he should be given the job permanently.

  16. Paris St-Germain who?

    Paris St-Germain 1-3 Man Utd (Agg 3-3)

    Remember way back when on Tuesday night, when Real Madrid’s Champions League reign came to an end?

    Enter: Manchester United.

    Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side have risen through the ashes like a phoenix since Jose Mourinho’s departure in December.

    Just 24 hours after Ajax’s domination the night before, Man Utd decided to take matters into their own hands to produce a historical comeback on Wednesday night.
