The idea of Manchester United winning the Champions League is totally laughable, which is exactly why Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher reacted that way at the suggestion, live on television.
Even the most biased of United fans would have to admit that the thought of Harry Maguire lifting the Champions League trophy seems a bit of a stretch.
Oh sure, it's a cup competition so the best team doesn't always win, but even in their 2-0 victory over Brighton on Tuesday night Ralf Rangnick's side hardly looked like world beaters, and that's following draws with Burnley and Southampton and a penalty shoot-out loss to Middlesbrough.
Richards asked Peter Schmeichel on CBS last night whether the club's former goalkeeper thought United could win it and his positive answer was met with howls of laughter from the former City man and snorts of derision from Carragher.
Of course Carragher will know all about winning the Champions League when his team's form in the league isn't up to much, having won it with Liverpool in 2005.
The Reds finished fifth that season in the league, and lost 14 times, finishing 37 points behind champions Chelsea and only finished above Bolton Wanderers on goal difference.
Rafa Benitez's team even needed to be handed special dispensation to qualify for the following season's Champions League and had to go through the qualifying stages, despite being champions.
They also weren't allowed 'association protection' so ended up being in the same group as Chelsea, actually beating their rivals to top spot in the group.
Despite all that, it's no surprise that Richards and Carragher find it laughable that United could become European champions this year.
Every day there seems to be some sort of new crisis coming out of Old Trafford, with the recent leaks being criticised by Gary Neville, who claimed he knew exactly which players they're coming from.
There has been lots of talk of players falling out with Rangnick, and Cristiano Ronaldo's relationship with the interim boss is said to be non existent.
The 37-year-old did at least end his six game goal drought on Tuesday night, as United's win over Brighton put them back in fourth place in the leauge.
