Maybe the best thing about yesterday was just after Dortmund's 10 minute mini onslaught.

Like we have seen done against us, notably at Wembley last year in our cup semi-final and in other games, you saw the home team wilt. You saw belief etch away from them and our players start to take control.

It's how I felt and once the goal went in and if I'm honest a few mins before, there was an air of inevitably about it.

We just got to be able to do that a bit more in the biggest games which for me is why I would mostly rather add to our current squad than seeing 4 or 5 replaced.

Verts brilliant tackle maybe a turning point in the game.

No double entendre meant !!

And yes but that's why he is there.

We know we have excellent defenders so we should expect such exhibitions of quality.

We cannot go on about how good we can be and then not be.

Wonderful night but now to Saturday. Mark of a top side is to wallow in praise for a day and then turn body and mind to the next challenge.

Wouldn’t be surprised if they turn PSG over which might be good for us next round
 
BC where is the Dortmund ratings thread ?
I thought the First 35 minutes were pretty poor to be honest. There were some great individual pieces of defending (Vertonghen, Davies, Lloris) but way too much last ditch stuff to call it “tactically excellent” if Dortmund had got an early goal it would have got a bit squeaky.

But then Poch effectively pulled up another bus, by moving Son back to LM, Eriksen RM, went 541 and that pretty much quelled the storm.

The early goal second just knocked the bollocks out of Dortmund and the rest of the second half was a cruise.

Credit to Sissoko for spotting and playing the through ball and an excellent finish by Kane.

Amen.
