    In Europe we lack composure on conceding, and lose goals in batches.

    Be a closer match then although if we play the same way against Bayern at Parkhead we should get by smoothly enough

    I would love it if we hammered Anderlecht to bring our GD down to a respectable level.

    We just have to pick ourselves up and have a good home win in our final Group game then look forward to giving the Europa League a real good go.We will learn from our heavy defeats,and learn for the better.

    It’s even more frightening if you look at it over a 10 minute period...

    Never want to play Barcalona , PSG or Real Madrid in the champions league again, give us the easiest draw possible, * the glamour teams they can wait till the last 16

    Won 5 out of 7 drew 1, lost 1in league since we played them.

    Improved a lot. We didn't even have to play amazing to beat them 3-0 on their own patch. Just a good performance was enough to pump them.

    Tell you something - the game against Anderlecht is going to be a tense affair.

    When was the last time we done it the easy way in Europe?

    Think Astana, Beer Sheva etc.

    Both away from home to be fair. Hopefully both the players and the fans are motivated though and don’t see it as a simple task.

    Really hope we score first in the Anderlecht game to settle the team. The europa would gave been our fallback had we got a favourable draw but once the draw was made the europa was our aim. The scorelines against PSG werent what we wanted but the way we defended against them made it easier for them to score so many these scorelines have given our detractors something to be happy about but in domestic football we are a class above we just need to find a way to take that other step to be more competitive in the CL
