win 3-1 and feel like the score line doesn't do us credit.just got to win 1 more game to win the group.did not see that coming when the draw was made.

youre not suppose to be but history did seem to say you had been poor there and of course that was never gonna last or you would be up for relegation

congrats of being as good as Girona

i think the real shock of the group is how poor Dortmund have been.

Dortmund are having the Spurs 2016 champions league nightmare.also Monaco and A Madrid seems to be struggling.

still think by the knock out rounds Real Madrid will be back playing well and a tough draw for any group winner.

Spurs were good, but what a Coach Pochettino is becoming. He changed the Spurs system to counter act Real's resulting in exploiting the opposition full backs. Trippier is a more than able replacement for Walker and even losing a presence in Alderweireld had no detrimental effect

The positive thing is a large core of this team are good young English players. Means nothing in terms of the International side, because England will always play like England, but good to see nonetheless to see players from here excelling on the top club stage

This season the German teams are 11th in the co-efficency standings - thats how bad German sides are doing

Just wonder if the Spanish teams have lost their edge. Real look lazy, Barcelona are too reliant on Messi and clearly miss Neymar and Atletico are not the defensive masters as before.

Juventus are slowly clicking into gear, but I reserve judgement on the english clubs until March. Getting out of the group is one thing. The knock outs are another particularly with the names who may be group runners up

bit worried about the Alderweireld injury but unlike last year we have Sanchez now who can play instead of last year when Wimmer played but struggled.

think England are starting to favour the 3 at the back plus wingbacks so maybe we will actually have players playing the best positions.southgate is definetly pushing the young players in but wonder if that's because they are ready or we are lacking other options.

Was at Wembley last night. What an atmosphere! A night to remember for sure. Tying in with the conversations on the London games threads, I think last night hammered it home for me how much better live sport is when you have a real rooting interest. I prefer NFL to football, definitely, but I got far more of a buzz from last night's game than any of the London NFL games I've been to in the last few years, whether close games or not. You just get more out of it when it's your own team.

Those England jerseys just seem to weigh a tonne, nobody looks themselves wearing the England shirt. They need to shift that mentality as much as anything else. It's like the penalties. Liverpool had a run where they won something like 12 penalty shootouts in a row. When Gerrard took a spot kick in a shootout for Liverpool he probably knew he was going to score. And when he was in an England shirt he probably knew he was going to miss.
