    Looked like it would be a tough group, but then Eriksen totally breaks that down against Dortmund. Great run of results recently.

    Winning at Dortmund was big. As long as we don't drop points to PSV we will be in good position.

    A very tough group but the team did brilliant winning away from home against one of the tough opponents the team have started excellently and this is looking the an opportunity for Poch to win his first trophies

    The win was big since PSG are group favorites. Head to head against Dortmund might determine who finishes second and advances.

    What a fantastic volley for yet another victory, this time in one of the most important stadiums of Europe. I must say I'm amazed and surprised by this brilliant start of the season.

    The team responded well to the draw and elimination from the cup with a comfortable win against Huddersfield. The team are in superb form despite this slip the Carabao cup wasn't a priority

    I didn't expect the Liverpool game to be as easy as it was. Dortmund was very tough and outside of Eriksen's goal, they were probably better if I'm being honest. The main issue will be when the fixture list is busy. I already am having rotation issues with 2 games in a week and players starting games with 3/4 fatigue levels.

    You are right, Carabao cup was not important. Winning it would be nice but we do not have the squad depth for 4 cups.

    Close loss. Seems like the boys put up fight though, so not the worst way to take it.

    What a show!

    PSG have a lot of attacking power... sadly for Spurs, the rival always was in advantage and the only thing Poch's team could do was to respond to their goals... until it was not possible anymore.

    Not a drama after the important victory against Dortmund, but it's evident this is a very tough group.


    I really love the other league's review. It helps to put the story into a context.

    Agreed, the way the match started I thought it would be a big loss. I'm not discouraged with this result though.

    PSG attack is brutal, if you focus on Neymar someone else would beat you. I think next time I'm going to try 3 CBs and see if that helps limit the options in the middle.

    Dortmund also lost to PSV which is big. Now I just need to not drop points against PSV and earn a draw against Dortmund and I should be through.

    Thanks! Doing the league round ups only take a few minutes now that the template is complete. Unfortunately FIFA does not provide much information on the other leagues so it is usually only standings, transfers or European competition.

    Spurs are definitely flying. The run of positive results is impressive and, in the few matches, the image was still good. Soon in the season yet, but it is not fantasy to think in important things this season.

    The best sign is seeing league favorites such as Liverpool and Man City dropping points this early in the season. Spurs are playing well but still have not won a big match outside of the Liverpool victory.

    Two early goals conditioned the whole game. According to the article, it seems it was a memorable lesson by Pep's City.

    Kane reacted to criticism as big players do. Spurs are solving games in the last minutes, but show a great consistency.

    It seems like every other match is coming down to the final minutes. Makes it exciting but also concerning we can't top the lower teams with ease.

    Spurs wasted a good chance to secure the ticket to the R16 and jump to top of the group. It is evident that it is not a dramatic result, but Spurs must be careful now because the other two rivals of the group are powerful.

    Yes, we really blew a great chance. Especially since we dominated most of the match and it felt like a simple win coming. BvB are next, if PSG can beat PSV and I get s point against BvB then my last PSG match will not matter.

    Win-draw-loss info below team name are still Champions League, but I take it you've retained 1st spot.
