Team is: Gollini, Grimshaw, Love, Ioannou, Rowley, Pearson, Weir, Barmby, Daehli, Januzaj, Wilson
Very strong team, seems that Pereira isn't fit which is a shame but there's no doubt there's still a lot of talent in that line up and hopefully they can produce on the OT pitch and have another good run in the cup this year.
1-1 Weir on the stroke of HT, Januzaj with a little back heel into him and he skipped past the defender and then slotted it past the keeper, lovely goal.
Tentative first half from United, we kept the ball well but struggled to test their keeper, Barmby and Pearson probably had our two best chances, excluding the goal, with far post headers that they didn't connect with properly.
Burnley look very organised and disciplined with a bit of a threat on the break but it's gonna be hard for them the longer the game goes on I suspect.
Barmby and Januzaj have looked the most likely to create something for us, with Pearson having a tidy game knitting everything together in the middle, hopefully we can add a bit more purpose to our play in the second half and win this one.
We really should have won that in 90, we gifted them their three goals with sloppy defending but they took their chances well. Let's see who can cope with extra time better as there were already a couple of players suffering from cramp.
We really paid for some poor defensive lapses tonight, Burnley, to their credit, worked extremely hard and took their chances when they fell to them but we should really have put them away considering the talent in that team, really thought we'd have a shot at winning the whole thing this year as well, gutted.
edit: on a plus note I thought Pearson was very impressive tonight, he was the fulcrum that the rest of the team worked off of and I think he used the extra space of the pitch better than anyone else in terms of spreading the play and taking up intelligent positions, such a shame we won't get to see more of this team on pitches like OT.

cjjagzmoni: Pogba is a good lad minus the showboating..I think at Juventus he had Older players like Pirlo,Chiellini,Marchisio,Bonucci who shout and screams at him so he was more serious at Juve ,We dont have those type of leaders at United to caution him.
