2. United v Villa - Benteke's blunders, Is Moyes taking more risks in the premier league now?

3. United v Bayern - Kagawa's surprising omission. Playing Giggs as a winger in a 4-4-2. Bayern's domination in the first half. Rafael's thoughts on Bayern under Guardiola vs Heynckes (listener question). For Joshi - does Moyesy deserve credit for this?  The excellent defensive performance by Rio and Vidic. Listener question about Buttner. With Schweini, Martinez and injured Thiago out, can United fans dream of a positive result at the Allianz?
