Manchester United’s European (mis)adventure is over for another year. It’s been an exciting, frustrating time, full of goals from all sides, inducing heart attacks and binge drinking among fans of all ages. Both legs of the Athletic Bilbao tie have seen our boys take almighty thrashings, masked by flatteringly close scorelines. Notwithstanding the inevitable caveats – it was “only” the Europa League (nonsense), Champions League complacency (inexcusable), the young players needing to learn the European game (agreed) – everyone will agree that the results and performances we’ve seen from the side have been unusually wobbly. Here are some of my thoughts on last night’s game, and the campaign in general.
After Beyond The Pitch and Stretford-End.com recorded their first podcast last week, here follows the second! Topics discussed range from post-match discussions to the Reserves to the atmosphere at games.

Tom Pattison from The Faithful joins us as a guest blogger this week to look at United’s current form both at home and in Europe, and asks a very pertinent question indeed; is Fergie’s persistent faith with the 4-4-2 system, despite it’s relative success in the Premier League, costing United on the European front?

United’s last 16 pairing in the Europa League has thrown up an opposition we’ve not faced in 55 years – Athletic Bilbao. Unless you’re a regular La Liga watcher then they may be somewhat unfamiliar so David Cartlidge has kindly agreed to provide information about the club in various different areas. David’s a freelance writer and written for a long list of reputable websites about Spanish football, he also happens to be a United fan!
