Manchester United 0 Lille 0

I was unable to see this game due to real life stuff but by all accounts I didn't miss much as Manchester United were pretty uninspired and uninspiring in this Group Stage match against Lille in the UEFA Champions League.

Paul Scholes is facing a ban after harshly being sent off for two debatable yellow cards and, adding injury to insult, Ryan Giggs will be out for a couple of months after one of the French team broke his cheekbone in three places, deepening the already grave injury crisis at Old Trafford.

The only good news is that Villarreal and Benfica also drew, maintaining United's narrow lead at the head of the group.

In case you're interested, here's some info about France, the city of Lille and, for our American readers, Football. These are links to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit.
