Heading the end of match day 2016 who wants to reflect on a Champions League with no Chelsea, Man United or Liverpool?

Doesn't really matter to me, but I believe we are seeing a rejiggering of the "natural order" of the EPL, so I expect a change in representation in the CL groups.  After viewing Spurs dismantle my club yesterday, I have to believe that they have the discipline and desire to make a splash in the CL this season.  Poch is one heck of a manager!

No, but I did not expect it would be after 14 fixtures.  I thought that City, despite the early goal conceded (slip and fall by Fernandinho), played well in the first half, but Bravo the Clown had a brainf@rt and left us playing a man down for 40 minutes at the Camp Nou.  He has been relatively poor since joining and after such a difficult beginning, Pep may instruct Begiristain to go back for a suitable keeper in the January window.  Unfortunately, this ball-playing type of keeper is a very uncommon breed, and attempting to nick a good one in the winter window could prove to be nigh on impossible.

I know this much - there's an English bloke in Torino who is having a laugh!

Good catch, Koz.  It's not possible that "The Old Lady" could be a juvenile, correct?!

Kroos & Modric = the two best central midfielders in the world ??

I think so.

They have been absolutely phenomenal for Real Madrid. Give the team such a solid base to build their attacks around. Give Marcelo & Carvajal the freedom to get forward. Retain and use possession brilliantly. Modric's dribbling from CM is exceptional.

No sympathy for Juve, a detested rival.  I do feel a little bit bad for Buffon, though.

Ronaldo is in top form.  What a legendary player.

That 2nd half was a bummer. I wanted Juve to win.

Real Madrid deserved it though. Best team in Europe this season. That Kroos-Modric partnership in midfield is phenomenal. And praise for Ronaldo too. His movement without the ball and finishing are exemplary.

Juve a bit of a no-show in the 2nd half. Couldn't get into the game after the break.

Great performance by RM and congrats to them.  Still, Juventus are a great side, just not today against the world's best.
