Watched Munich - Madrid and Juventus - Barca. Fun games.

Looking at these elite clubs play, you really notice that we're a few players short of jumping up into that group. Every player seems skilled, fit, and athletic. And the way these teams organize and play together. I don't think we're THAT far off. But we have work to do catching up to teams like these. Hope we have a good Summer bringing in talent.

Some bullshit what happened to the Dortmund bus. Bunch of 20 against 1 "tough guys". Punks.

I will be watching the Man Utd game today.

True, James, at the very top. Leicester - Atletico wasn't too special though.

I've noticed your point also when we've played Tottenham away and Chelsea this season. Much of it has to do with a level of athleticism, as you say, but some of that perhaps comes with confidence.

Fair play to those Leicester fans standing up to the Spanish over Gibraltar.

That'll show 'em.

Anyone getting a bit twitchy about the possibility of Leicester winning the Champions League? Highly unlikely, I know, but should they win it, and Man Utd win the Europa League, we lose our place in Europe next season.

Atletico 1-0 up on the night, 2-0 up on aggregate now. Get your passports in order for a few trips to Europe next year, fellow blues!

Me too, Ian.

Why is Woody Allen doing the half-time analysis with Rio and Gerrard

With Leicester losing, does that mean we are guaranteed European football next season now?

Unless Southampton or West Brom win every single game and we lose every one, then yes, Rob.

Cheers, Brian. There was an article in the Echo online last night confirming this.

Rashford puts Man Utd ahead early in the second half of extra time, he has been man of the match tonight.

World class tonight according to.... forget that, it was Robbie Savage saying that.
