I'm totally neutral, before any of you start. To have spent that much and it to go to the last game, you can understand the fans' disappointment.
It's 18 months of below par, with all that money. I think [Louis Van Gaal] is under severe pressure. Look guys, you wanted attacking football, Van Gaal gave it to you ;-.
It seems like a lot of people haven't realised that Ferguson retiring really was the end of an era. It will take actual time for United to return to their European conquering ways and you know what, perhaps no longer than next season, once this team knows each other a bit better.
The youngsters in the United team played really well, Varela had a great second half and Martial was a threat throughout. This side is definitely a work in progress and United were only two points away from qualifying anyway.
THAT was as average as it could be. Not great at all and there's a long way to go.! That was something else. One of the most entertaining Champions League matches I've seen in years.
End to end throughout, chances everywhere I'm exhausted just watching it. Man Utd are in the Europa League!
It must be over. The move breaks down and as Wolfsburg move back up the pitch, Varela is booked for a foul wide right of the box.
Probably a good freekick to give away to be fair. This game is relentless. Martial links up superbly with Memphis, who plays a delightful dinked chip over the defence to put the striker through on goal.
He can't get the ball under control. The ball spins loose in the box and Nick Powell and Chris Smalling are inches away from getting on the end of a pass hit across the goal.
Wolfsburg move up the other end straight away and win a corner. It's swung into the back post and met by Naldo, who heads to the opposite side of the goal and United's defenders can't keep it out.
And now PSV have scored again which means United need to score two in the final five minutes. Memphis has space down the left, drives forward and fires a low ball to the near post.
The keeper puts it behind for a corner which Blind takes. Fellaini jumps highest, nods it down into the ground and Guilavogui heads backwards over his goalkeeper and a defender on the back post.
United are going through! He can't join in an attack as United surge forward with nearly every single player in Wolfsburg's attacking third.
A defensive substitution for Wolfsburg, who remember, only have to draw. Smalling is having a chat with Van Gaal. Owen Hargreaves reckon they want Smalling to go on and play as a striker since he can't run now.
And now Chris Smalling looks like he has to go off with an injury, he's struggling. CSKA score that penalty which means as things stand, Van Gaal's side would finish in second place in their group.
It's good, but it's not right. Look at this as well - United are the attacking team in this picture! They're pressing so high up the pitch and it's the 71st minute.
Eight away players in that one screengrab above. This is like no Van Gaal United performance I've ever watched. Mata and Schweinsteiger off, Powell and Carrick on.
Last throw of the dice for Van Gaal? A shot from 35 yards dips and swerves all over the place and forces the keeper to divert it wide.
From the corner Max Kruse has the chance to win the tie, and takes a shot from inside the 18 yard box as the ball falls to his feet but it's just wide.
De Gea is forced into another great save after a quick attack by Wolfsburg ends with a shot at goal by Schurrle. Point blank reaction stop by De Gea.
Unsurprisingly, that doesn't work and Schurrle has a chance to lob the keeper from 35 yards. Memphis stands over a freekick on the left but doesn't corss it, instead he plays a square ball across the box, Fellaini lays it back Schweinsteiger who shoots but the ball is blocked and falls loose in the box.
After a scramble a cross is sent in from the right but Lingard just can't get enough on the ball. Great football by Van Gaal's side.
Varela gets forward, brings in his teammates and Mata plays it back out wide to Martial. He crosses it in, Fellaini gets his head on it and heads the ball down for Lingard in the six yard box but it's saved.
The ball falls to Memphis on the left of the six yard box and he tries a falling scissor kick but again the keeper saves well. He's had the ball a few times at left back and just now went on a sprint down the wing to try and help out Memphis.
The Dutchman tried a fancy backheel flick which didn't work. United have very inexperienced fullbacks at the moment but Wolfsburg are biding their time and appear to be sitting back a lot more than their relentless first half performance.
Blind steps out and brings it forward but has to retreat and the move starts from the back again. Memphis is fouled while trying to go around two players at the same time.
United come forward on the right, Martial tries to link up with Mata but Arnold hacks the ball away. Memphis then manages to get a cross in from the left by Fellaini fouls Dante as he jumps for a header.
It's really soft and the defender should have been stronger but the referee gives a freekick. For the sake of entertainment I'd like more of the same from the first half but to prevent my hands siezing up and becoming claws from typing at words per second, I'd like something calmer.
Anyway, here we go! Mata is definitely offside when the ball is played into the box because whether he touches it or not, the goalkeeper is put off by his being there.
The controversy has come from the referee appearing to award the goal and then running over to his linesman, surrounded by Wolfsburg players.
United players went to the referee at the half time whistle but he's made the correct decision. Actually, those two things are related.
Wolfsburg are rocketing forward as soon as they get the ball and running straight at United's defenders. Varela has been a target - occasionally Wolfsburg break down the left and attack him but the most common bit of play is for the home side to switch the ball from right to left and exploit the space that has been left there.
Several of their most dangerous attacks have come this way. Should that goal have stood?! It's all so confusing. That game was the most entertaining Man Utd have been for about two years.
The ball is swung in from the left and ends up in the back of the net. The United players celebrate, the score changes on the score board but suddenly everyone realises that the linesman had his flag up.
He did that very late. Mata claimed the goal but as you can see he was very offside when it came off his back. Whether or not he actually touched is the main issue of contention, but he's also possibly interfering with play.
Either way, it's He's 18 years old. Good luck to you, young sir. Darmian is about to come off having picked up an injury. He's clutching the back of his thigh which might mean a hamstring injury.
United's injury problems continue. Ashley Young is the most likely to come on but at the moment United are down to ten men. Draxler finds himself in space in the middle of the United defensive third, tries to dance his way around the defenders and manages.
His shot from just inside the box is saved really well by De Gea. Should probably be You wanted a nice open attacking game didn't you?
And now look what's happening. Van Gaal's side are trying to work the ball forward but Wolfsburg are breaking at speed. This is about the most entertaining group game in the Champions League I can remember watching for a wee while now I think about it.
It's surprisingly open for a Man Utd match. Wolfsburg are really targetting United's right back at the moment, Schurrle twists and turns in the box and nearly gets a ball fired across the box.
Wolfsburg Vierinha 29' 2 - 1 Man Utd. Stunning stuff by Wolsburg. They are targeting Varela not by attacking down the left but rather hitting cross field passes to the space that Varela is looking after.
A long pass finds Vierinha on the left, he switches it again to Draxler, who ghosts past two defenders, plays a one two with Kruse and squares a pass for an unmissable chance at an open goal.
Juan Mata plays an absolutely brilliant corner to the middle of the penalty box and Fellaini is there. He gets head through the ball and at goal but Benaglio reacts well and gets across to save.

Having used all their substitutes, Chris Smalling has limped off with an injury. Van Gaal is discussing the situation with Smalling. Manchester United are going out again!
How cruel is this sport? As it stands, Manchester United are going through! I thought Depay had scored. What an opportunity for United.
Manchester United make their two final changes. That is a curious decision from Van Gaal. This is a very hairy spell for United.
The ball is on his favoured left foot and incredibly he clips his volley inches past the left post! United clear the corner with some difficulty.
De Gea makes another stunning save to deny Wolfsburg a clincher. The sublime Draxler spears a first-time pass through to Schurrle.
Under pressure, the ball loops off his shins - or possibly off Varela - and De Gea reacts by tipping it over. He angrily appeals for an offside flag, but Borthwick-Jackson was playing Schurrle onside.
Martial shoots from the right side of the Wolfsburg area. Dante sprays a glorious pass over the United defence for Schurrle.
Schurrle is forced to retreat but he shows great awareness under pressure, spinning and lifting a wonderful effort towards goal. The corner comes to nothing.
Mata and Depay stand over the free-kick. The big men are up from the back. Depay rolls the ball across the edge of the area to Blind, who scored from this move against Liverpool.
And the flag is up for offside against Mata. But this is an encouraging spell for United. United win a free-kick on the left corner of the Wolfsburg area.
They have dominant the last few minutes. Can they do anything here? United attack down the right. The ball is lifted into the middle and Fellaini heads it into the six-yard-box.
A block diverts it to the left for Depay, whose acrobatic scissors kick is kept out by sharp reflexes from Benaglio. United are unfortunate not to be level.
Is it a case of holding what they have? Interestingly, or not, when United went out in the group stages in , they took an early lead in their final match against Benfica.
It was to Benfica by half-time and at full-time. Fellaini attacks it, but he fouls Dante. Could this be the night when Nick Powell makes himself a Manchester United hero?
United dropped to fourth in the Premier League on Saturday after recording their sixth stalemate of the season at home to West Ham.
And boss Louis van Gaal is all too aware that their killer instinct must return by the time they take to the field in Germany, otherwise they are likely to exit Europe's elite competition at the group stage for only the fourth time in their history.
The Dutchman was expected to lead his team through their group untroubled but after drawing at home to PSV Eindhoven last month, there is a real danger they could drop into the Europa League.
Captain Wayne Rooney was ruled out of the United's trip to Wolfsburg with an ankle injury, leaving United with just one available striker in Anthony Martial.
Morgan Schneiderlin is also ruled out of the tie. A draw would be enough if PSV also fail to win. Finishing top of Group B will mean the three-time winners will avoid the likes of reigning champions Barcelona, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
What Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal must do to make last United's overall away record against sides from Germany is won five, lost five with four draws although their supporters have good memories of their last trip to Wolfsburg when former England striker Michael Owen scored a hat-trick in their win in December as the Red Devils reached the quarter-finals.
