Fans feeling confident
Ahead of today's Champions League draw, we asked fans for their thoughts on United's chances in this season's competition...
"I think ourselves and Barcelona are the main contenders. Real Madrid may have a good chance this year as they have a new, proven manager in Jose Mourinho. Personally, I'd rather see us win the league which would be a record 19th triumph, although I think we are much better equipped to win both the league and Champions League."Chris, East Yorkshire
"We shouldn’t fear anybody this season, they should fear us. Personally I'm not worried about who we'll get in the draw or the knock-out stages for that matter as I believe we can beat anyone. We can definitely go all the way this year; we won’t need to rely on one particular player as we have talent in abundance in the squad."Gary, Manchester
"I felt that the commitment wasn’t there at the end of last season which is what let us down in the latter stages. However, this season, with a few new additions and another year's experience under our belts we are much better equipped for the competition. I’m going to predict a United/Barcelona final and this time I’m confident we can beat them."Ryan, Manchester
"I see the biggest threat coming from the Bernabau and Jose Mourinho’s Real Madrid. You have to respect what Mourinho has achieved in football and with a formidable team at Madrid they must be one of the favourites. Nevertheless, should we get drawn with them I'm confident we would win. Despite the disappointment of being knocked out by Bayern last season that was my favourite Champions League match of 2009/10. The football in the first half was sensational and the atmosphere was electric. More performances like that will see us up there challenging for the top honours again."Neil, Manchester
"My favourite Champions League memory came in '99 when I was up at 5am in the morning to watch Teddy and Ole seal an incredible Treble, I’m hoping for something similar this year. Despite disappointment last year there were some great memories such as the comprehensive 4-0 victory over Milan. We are stronger this year and I think we have a terrific chance. Mark, Australia
