Biggest fear after last night

I was hoping with all my heart we lose, get 2nd place in the group and get Bayern in the last 16. Then come February, watch them helplessly bag 9 past our defense and start rebuilding will all those sponsor money available. This is what I am afraid of, that after finishing top spot in the CL, we will probably beat Aston Villa, West Ham, Hull and Norwich (or at least manage 10 out of 12 points), then come January we will be in 4th spot, 5 points behind Arsenal, 2 behind Chelsea and City and Moyes will come out and say that he is happy with the team and he always knew we will turn it around. The Glazers and Woodward will back him up and fans will be left with Baines. You heard it here first, we ain't signing anyone for January, even though top quality is available, from Fernando to Xabi Alonso, Raul Garcia, Menez, Matuidi. Not to mention that Brazilian CM whose name is ironically Everton. Not to mention Draxler, who let's face it, is worth in our inflated world 45 million. Fergie said he will never regret that Hazard chose Chelsea over us. Well, I am sure as hell the fans are regretting it. That's what 45 million brings you, pure talent. Not to mention the merchandise price is around 50 euros per shirt. You're telling me ManUnited won't sell 1 million shirts with Draxler in a worldwide community of 600 million fans to cover the cost of the transfer? Ridiculous. That is Business 101 and Real thought us a lesson in it when they covered the 90 million paid for CR in the *** preseason just from shirt sales. Where is your God now, Woodward? Probably eating Mr. Potato chips. We have a mixed squad that has more global sponsors than world-class players and for all the big talk about our Academy, our youngsters are ***. Look at the U19 Champions League and you will realize that all the other English teams managed to outclass their opposition. You never hear big bragging talk from the Academy of Chelsea, City, Bayern or Real. It's only us who are always reminding the world about Class of 92. Well, it's not 1999 treble season anymore, it's 2014, and all the other academies are producing world-class talent apart from ours. The last 2 "world stars" we "produced" were Pogba and Januzaj, and they were both snatched at the age of 16, not to mention that the jury is still out on Januzaj. I don't care if it makes us look bad or ridiculous. Sell Young, sell him for 3 million, 5 million, whatever million. He will be worth it for clearing the space in wages alone. Sell all the dead wood and start buying big. Most of the transfers are covered by fans buying shirts anyway, there is no financial *** reason not to purchase world-class players because of "inflated prices". After our defeat against Newcastle, I had a dream that we will finish the season on the 12th place in the league, Moyes will quit and Solskjaer will become our manager, leading us to glory once again. I actually never understood why Fergie didn't even give it a thought about Solskjaer, who lead Molde to back to back titles picking them up in midtable and worked wonders with our Reserve team. For all the 1999 dream team *** propaganda which the club is STILL riding and milking, he was surely too quick to dismiss one of our heroes from back then.
