Man Utd in control of their group.....Not bad going seen as we still haven't gotten out of first gear as yet.

Can only beat who is in front of you mate.

End of the day he saved our skin and the two goals should give him a lot of confidence.
What do you think of Tierney so far? I counted 4 different times he was beaten for the first goal against Vitoria. But going forward he was excellent. I wonder if left back/wing back is not his best position and he may be more suited to left midfield. Emery likes to play with wing backs so it will be interesting whether Tierney or Kolasinac gets the nod.

Haven't watched enough of him to give a proper answer.

Latro might have a better idea.

I am too old to get up and watch cup games.
With the Optus app you can watch whole games live or delayed, mini matches (best 20 minutes), or a couple of minutes of highlights. EPL, Champs League and Europa for $15 per month.

On Tierney, I've got a mate who's a Celtic supporter and raves about him. He seems like a good lad. I hope he does well.

Good player with a bright future. He is 22 years old so will make mistakes. Important that he gets good coaching to achieve his potential though.

Wow. What a goal by Bruno Duarte. Vitoria/Arsenal 1-1.

And almost an Arsenal own goal now from Mustafa. Off the post. They almost scored from the corner, too.

Damn, what a last few minutes of that match. Vitoria had two solid chances after their goal and one if their players failed to pick out at least 4 teammates in the penalty area in the last few seconds.

1 shot on target from a set piece vs the 5th best side in Portugal, Unai Emery the joke that just keeps on giving.

What was the rationale behind playing a EL game on a Wed night? Has that ever happened before?

Something to do with Braga hosting a game also and they didn't want to matches in the same proximity at the same time.

Lol, UEFA are so dumb. Have a look at the penalty that PSV just received against LASK to make it 1-0. Cross into the box and a defender had his arm up and it was given as a penalty. Except contact with the elbow was clearly outside the box.

No VAR at this stage of the competition. 🙄

Celtic win away at Lazio. Huge result against the fascists. Already qualified for next stage.

Real concern in the Wolves game at the moment. Raul Jimenez attempted an overhead kick in the box and he caught a defender flush in the face. He’s been out cold for the last 3-4 minutes.

Raul Jimenez tries another overhead kick and this time injures himself. Strange.
