There's some praise for Marouane Fellaini in the Mirror, with his goal sending United through to the Europa League final despite a late worry. Now, Fellaini does have his uses. He causes problems in the box and occasionally defends obdurately. But it ignores the downside of his reliably awful finishing in the penalty area, and his lack of wit and discipline around the penalty area. He doesn't seem like a bad man at all, but there's no point suggesting he should be at the club any longer than absolutely necessary.

We've not seen Jose Mourinho look especially happy since he poked the Barcelona assistant manager Tito Vilanova in the eyeball. Moving to Chelsea, he looked like the kind of man who had to spend time with John Terry. At United, he has struggled to perfect his side, despite clearly wanting to belong at the club and revitalise himself. Here he is, celebrating, and now we can all rub ourselves.

Mourinho praised and defender Eric Bailly despite being sent off last night, and given Bailly's age, and possibly not knowing what it is that provoked him to react, it might be worth waiting to know some more details. Nevertheless, with Phil Jones and Chris Smalling probable replacements, we can probably congratulate Ajax now. Assuming either of them are fit to play in the final.

Sergio Romero has been linked to Inter Milan, but says he is happy at United. Of course, it means very little in knowing whether he will stay or not, but Romero has been a reliable and improved 'keeper this season. He is nowhere near good enough to start regularly in the league for United, but I give him my permission to stay for another season.

And lastly, it says something for Luke Shaw that when I saw the headline I assumed this was to do with his lack of fitness.
