Not often I admit this, but my doubts about Sibbald were way off the mark. Excellent tonight.

Thought he was excellent. Assume he was only subbed because of the booking.

Someone mentioned that last time United won a two-legged European tie they won 17-0?!

I was also thinking at half-time that (notwithstanding the nervous first 10min) that this was the best football we’d played in years.

Folk can get fixated just on results, but even though we finished 4th last year, some of our actual play made my eyes bleed.

Sure we’ve signed some better players, but the fact we were actually attempted to pass it around a Dutch side made me damn happy! Under Courts we would have witnessed hoofball tonight.

CE Principat of Andorra.

Sandro Rosell, who subsequently became President of Barcelona, played up front for them

I thought the crowd definitely reacted to the performance tonight. Hearing the crowd cheer the team on midway through the 1st half in recognition that we were growing into the game was such a refreshing change given how venomous Tannadice has been at times in the last few years.

9/10's all over the park except Harkes. Smith was also a bit off the pace.

Fletcher outstanding in his craft and looks 25.

Watt absolutely superb. Knows his strengths and was a total nuisance.

Levitt absolutely effortlessly class. I noticed tonight he barely speaks on the pitch, just goes about his Wizardry with minimal fuss and yet again showed we're incredibly lucky to have him.

Edwards and Mulgrew incredible. Not just physically but their positioning was top drawer.

Sibbald very clever and technically very good.

Middleton a great signing, especially happy it's a 3 year deal.

McGrath in for Harkes next week and probably Behich for Sheep, however Sheep was superb as well tonight.

Football is so beautiful. The Levitt pass, the control, the back heel and the finish.

What an absolute joy to watch. 

Whatever happens in this tie I will never forget the thrill of witnessing that live and one person.

 

Sorry, there was no back heel.

Well, seeing as it was about 3am kick-off where I am and not on TV I think I'll excuse myself for that!

Credit where it's due; United were superb last night and it augurs well for their league campaign that there was no lack of match sharpness evident in only their second competitive game of the season. It's only half-time in the Euro tie of course, but, even this early, their quality suggests they'll be challenging at the top end of the SPFL Premiership this season.

I agree. I think we're going to win the league too.
