    I very much enjoyed Scott Brown trying his usual noncery on the PSG midfielders and being made to look like the dog shit cunt he is over and over again.

    Looking forward to tonight, think it will be a good test of where we are in the grand scheme of things; Dortmund are probably at the top end of the level we're (roughly) on at the moment, not one of the elite sides but with tons of quality and more than capable of giving anyone a game. No Alli for us due to him being a dickhead in the CSKA game last year, but Dortmund are missing half their side so it's a good time to play them. Weirdly this feels like a huge game even though it's the first in the group - assuming Madrid are going to win it and Nicosia are going to finish bottom, the two games between us and Dortmund are going to be very important.

    No idea what to expect, really. Not seen too much of us yet this year. Was unimpressed with the performance at Newcastle, thought we did well against Chelsea for large parts of the match, just seen highlights or nothing of the other games.

    And I know nothing about Dortmund these days. But yeah, I hear they have 9 players out.

    Huge game, given what you've said, Si, but also because of how badly we started last year. A decent start this year would be very welcome.

    People were shitting their pants at the dropped points early on but it was just a little bit of bad luck really - we've dominated every game we've played so far this season and only uncharacteristically bad decision-making at the end of the Chelsea and Burnley games have left us with 7 points instead of 10. Today is the big test because last year it felt like we had a mental block regarding CL football, but we will be right up there again this season without a doubt.

    How we were 2-1 up at half-time I'll never know. Well, it was mostly down to shit keeping, but Dortmund were very good that first half. Second half I thought we were much better. Excellent start.

    Was surprised there were only 67,000 odd there though.

    Nice to see the BBC Sport starting a "Harry Kane must leave to win the Ballon D'Or" narrative already

    Yeah, saw that. To be honest, I do expect him to leave at some point. When will depend on how Spurs do, I feel. Say for example Spurs failed to qualify for the CL next season, and a Real or Barca came in, he could go that soon.

    I mean, he's 24. That isn't that young, really.
