Watched Cluj at home to Slavia Prague last night, how the f¿¢K did they beat Celtic, I mean there was pandemonium in the cluj defence everytime Slavia were awarded a corner kick. Anyway I hope Slavia progress as I'd have a soft spot for them as had a great trip in the europa league in 2005 with City. Cork have actually drawn Slavia twice in European competition in the past.

I thought Cluj played very well on the break against Celtic.

They looked a half decent side at home, I think they'll do well in the EL.

Club Brugge fans singing that nonsense Welsh "don't take me home, please don't me home" chant, in English, as they are about to go into the CL group stages. Utter nonsense:

1) they are literally already playing at home and will presumably almost all go home and sleep in their own beds tonight;
2) they were guaranteed six more European matches regardless of the result tonight so weren't going out of Europe no matter;
3) they are a f**king Belgian club - there is no reason for the singing in English.

Utter, utter sh*t chanting.

One of the worst chants of all time. I know all humour and originality has been sucked out of the game, but even in these times that chant is appalling. It makes me want to buy Will Grigg a pint. 

The only time it was acceptable was after McClean scored the winner in Cardiff. That was funny.

"Don't take me home"....

Napoli v Liverpool

Shakhtar v City
 
A few repeat ties from last year's group stages in the opening week this year.
 
Will be interesting to see how Salzburg and Leipzig get on tonight, two teams that were in Celtic's EL group last year.

Some good ties over the next two nights. The group stages are a lot better than they're given credit for. Both finalists scraped through the groups last season. Barca, Dortmund, Inter & Slavia as a brilliant group. Chelsea's should be interesting as well, Ajax and Valencia will be tough.

Chelseas group will be very interesting. Ajax are a different outfit minus De Jong and De Ligt. Have Valencia appointed a new manager yet?

Would agree the group stages are actually very interesting the last few years. The repeat ties is a bit of a nuisance but in general a lot of the groups go to the wire.

If Dortmund beat Barca tonight that group will be blown wide open. 3 teams with aspirations to go along way this season.

You could have 50,000 in there and the lower tier would still be empty

Ter Stegen was excellent tonight, but Dortmund really should have won that game. I don't know what the ref was looking at when that penalty was taken though, keeper well off his line and 3 players encroaching, doesn't bother his arse ordering a re-take despite that....

Bale and Hazard should start.

Can't say I'm surprised about that ref, Ovidiu Hategan from Romania - he was the muppet who refused to give Ireland a nailed-on penalty shortly before half-time in the Euro 2016 match v Italy in Lille. Clown

Women analysts all over the sports broadcasts these days, whether it be soccer, rugby or what have you.
With women officials in the men’s game also, I think it’s a great thing the world is progressing in it’s inclusion of women into what was previously a male dominated area. 

I’m really forward to the day when each men’s soccer team needs to play with a minimum quota of female players in the starting XI.

In my opinion Bayern Munich are the strongest side in Europe, they have the best number 9 in the world in Lewandowski, the best CM in the world in Thiago and the best right back in the world in Kimmich.
 
Coutinho will be a great signing for them and Neuer looks back to his best.

They look very good but stronger than Liverpool, the team who knocked them out last year? Stronger than City with the players they have? Not sure. Can't stand Lewandowski, biggest diving coont around

They were brilliant last night, loved the second Gnabry goal where he took the long pass while running at high speed.
Some of Spurs' defending was shocking mind. Thought Lloris could have got to a few of the goals as well

It was Spurs. 

I will certainly make no judegements on how good Bayern are this season based on watching that game. Some cracking goals by Gnabry, for a player never to have scored in the Champions League before

The mad thing is, Spurs were the better side for the first half hour. Son missed a scoreable (word?) chance early on and attempted another while Kane was waiting for a tap-in, even before he got his goal.

Kimmich's equaliser was a fabulous break - it happens - and Bayern came back strongly for the last 15 mins of the half. Of course, Spurs should have just held on to go in level at H-T, but a calamitous bit of defending at a corner presented BM with, well, a present.

Second half started, Aurier made a horrible mistake, bang, goal.

Then Winks made another, bang, goal.

BM then made a mistake of their own, a penalty conceded on the hour, Kane scores (obv) and even at 4-2 you thought Spurs might still claw something back somehow, a la Ajax away.

Then another feckin mistake (Toby?), and another, and another (probably, I was watching through my fingers) and it was one almighty WTF! Ouch

After the Soton game, I had thought things were getting back on track, but last night reflected Wenger's observation that while it can take months to build confidence, you can lose it in an evening (or somesuch).

So minor changes won't be enough, there needs to be a big clear-out in January - Eriksen, Aurier, Wanyama, maybe Rose - and some quality replacements signed, esp a RB.

Then get Lo Celso, Sessegnon and Ndembele (esp) properly fit and integrated into the team, and concentrate on finishing Top Four at all costs.

Of course this is now a huge ask, but I believe as much as ever that's there's no better man for the job than Poch, meaning Levy's first priority must be giving him whatever he wants to keep him.

Wouldn't like to judge BM on the evidence of one game, but what most impressed me about last night was the way they demonstrated perfectly all the old cliches about German football: ruthless, efficient, professional, battle-hardened etc.

Of course, the first half hour showed how a top team might still get amongst them if they press them hard up front from the very beginning, Which should offer hope to Liverpool (esp) and City.

But for me, the key to them is not Lewandowski, fine player though he obviously is, but Gnabry, who was absolutely unstoppable on the break last night (same for the NT in Belfast last month Ouch)

Either way, they should be strong contenders for the CL again this season, possibly more so than recent seasons.

I would say Thiago is their main man. Spurs had success in the first half when he wasn't on the pitch, the second half he dictated the game and like most games rarely lost the ball! His assist for Gnabry was unreal, the complete midfielder Clap

Great player. Still can't beleive Barca let him go.

If the draw is favourable, Bayern should get to the Semis. I'd fancy them to beat most teams.

Fair point - I guess you always need someone to load the gun, as well as someone to fire it.

They were brilliant, as I've already said if you cared to read. I praised them myself already this morning. Why would I have been on for Tottenham?
 
Only saw the highlights but they seemed a joy to watch. On the week that some on here were bemoaning the demise of many big clubs around Europe, Bayern put in that performance. Absolutely clinical.

Was fuming when Wenger let Gnabry leave. Everyone could see how talented he was, and he wasn't getting enough time on the pitch to show it. Now it's possible that he wanted to return to Germany anyway, but can't help feel more should have been done to keep him.

Would agree with Terri about Spurs being the better side in the first half. Absolute capitulation in the 2nd half though.

I thought he would turn up with Tommy Robinson! Where is he these days? Apart from Barcelona in 1999...

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.
