First of all, congrats to FC Basel. Moving on...

Gutted. Embarrassed. Deserved -- these are my raw and incredibly simple thoughts on this shocking day for Manchester United. The Reds have looked completely unconvincing since the derby disaster and perhaps manager Sir Alex Ferguson should have been given more credit for his side's recent propensity to grind out dull 1-0 victories. United have been ravaged by injury but the supposed quality of their squad depth should have been enough to see them through to the knockout stages of the UEFA Champions League. There simply are no excuses for these god awful performances. This is not a very good side right now.

We will have plenty of time now to look at what is ahead (Europa League... UGH) but feel free to vent here. Share your anger, frustrations, thoughts, or solutions here. Take it out here rather than on your loved ones or pets.

P.S. I f****** hate those white kits.
