Right, there's only so long we can all hang around waiting for Louis van Gaal. So we are closing this page down now. Stay tuned to the site for his reaction once we have it. Adios!

Talking #CFC #AVFC #MUFC #BORO #MCFC and all that jazz on Team Talk with @PhilWilliams & @alibendertv at 23:30 on @bbc5live. #bbcfootball

Not making excuses (United were dire) but that refereeing performance was dreadful. Everyone in the stadium could see it. Rooney needs a spell on the bench. We cannot progress with him as the first name on the team sheet.


Rooney hasn't played well for three years now. Sir Alex was absolutely right to try and ease Rooney out of the club when Sir Alex himself left, Rooney was already half the player he was. The worst thing Moyes did to United was to ignore Sir Alex and offer Rooney that insanely enormous contract.

Tim, Devon.

An admirable effort from Chris there to find some positives...

Middlesbrough will fancy their chances at home to Everton too. Looks pretty wide open...

Chris Bailey: Last year we lost 4-0 to MK Dons in 2nd Round. If a penalty shoot-out defeat in 4th Round doesn't demonstrate progress...

Daniel Powell: If Rooney is playing behind Carrick then you've got a problem with your system. LVG needs to find where the hole is

Maggi Davis: So proud of Middlesbrough, the team did it for Teesside   

The draw

BBC Sport


Rooney is not useless but he hasn't played well all season. LVG needs to drop him NOW! And boring possession with no threat, LVG needs to change his philosophy or United need to change him!

There's no excuse for Rooney. He held the club to ransom to get his new contract and he needs to deliver.

What a fantastic effort from Boro tonight, on and off the pitch. Heaps of defiance and resilience from a town that is having it tough.

Those League Cup quarter-finals will be played in the week commencing 30 November. 

Manchester United knocked out

Man Utd 0-0 Middlesbrough - Boro win 3-1 on pens

Danny Mills

BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

"You can't say Manchester United did enough to win the game. And when it went to penalties, the Boro keeper was excellent. When Manchester United became desperate, throwing bodies forward, they created chances. But it was too little too late.

"But well done Aitor Karanka and well done Middlesbrough. Their priority is getting into the Premier League but they won't mind a good cup run too."

So Middlesbrough get a home draw. How far can they go now?

Quarter-final draw

Huge celebrations from the men in yellow and that huge away following. Goalkeeper Tomas Mejias is the hero of the hour!

Marouane Fellaini! Heads over! 

Free header, six yards out. That's what you're in the team for son...

How's he missed that! Anthony Martial has a free header six yards out, awkward height, and he slices it wide!

Into the 120th minute...

Into the last five minutes or so. Looks like penalties.

Tim's not happy.

Wayne Rooney reacts

How incredibly bad does Rooney have to be before his media sycophants see it? He's paid £300,000 a week, the fifth highest paid player IN THE WORLD and he can't reliably pass, control a ball or hold the position he's supposed to for the benefit of the team. He's already shot physically, and he's got four more years on his contract. Good luck with THAT, United fans. Danny Mills and the rest of his vintage of England players who have this blind spot for Rooney as an ex colleague and friend need to stop making excuses for him.. be experts, not mates.

Tim, Devon

Man Utd 0-0 Middlesbrough

Ashley Young gives away a free-kick, looked like he was pushed by Emilio Nsue first though. United defend the free-kick well.

Under 10 minutes remaining. 

Man Utd 0-0 Middlesbrough

A wag on twitter has suggested that 'sideways penalties' will be fun anyway...

Manager reaction - Howe

Liverpool 1-0 Bournemouth

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "I think we should have got something from the game. We created some good chances in both halves, but especially in the first half we had that cutting edge and their keeper made some good saves. 

"Some of our passing and build-up play was very good - the only thing missing was the goals. We grew into the game, even in the second half when we didn't create chances, we played well. We don't want to get used to losing, but it was a positive day for us."

Man Utd 0-0 Middlesbrough

Back up and running. Do you want penalties now? Danny Mills does, Alan Green wants a 'clean kill.'

His words. 

Man Utd 0-0 Middlesbrough

Danny Mills

BBC Radio 5 live at Old Trafford

"Middlesbrough were clearly happy to sit back and contain. I would have liked to see Manchester United put them under pressure earlier and see if they would crack."
