Let's not pit who's better than who in the same team. I hate that.

Apparently Basel put up a good fight against ManUnited!

I watched Bayern play Manchester City and I must say that I was disappointed by City's performance. The first half an hour they played well, but the moment they took a goal, they seemed to mentally collapse. Especially the second half they played without heart and were thus outclassed by a far superior Bayern. And apparently, Carlos Tevez refused to come on as a subtitute as well...

I wouldn't say Bayern were far superior, City played well especially 1st half, they just never had that final cutting edge up front.

Is what it is! United know they dont really have to try that hard to qualify to get out of the group stages so they took their foot off the gas.

They should know better than this.
CL Season 2005-06 same happened. Remember when they were in the same group as Lille, Villareal and Benfica (again).
ManUtd were thinking they will easily win the group and they finished 4th, yes 4th.
Utd were drawing games, all games were basically dull draws that were ending 1:1 or 0:0. In the last game they headed to Benfica seeking a win to get through the group and ended up losing that game 2:1. The draw was enough for them end up 3rd and play Europa League, but.....
It is fairly easier group this and I cant see them dropping points against Otelul Galati, that and victory at home vs Benfica will guarantee one of the 2 top places in the group, but still in Europe they cant produce their dominant game as it is the case in England.
As long as I admire SAF, sometimes in European games he should've done better, way better.

Only 2 CL titles in the last 15 years when they really dominate the European football is not enough.
