Amazing win for Celtic. To win with 11% possession and close to a ninth of the number of passes is incredible. Barca struggle too much against terrific defensive performances because they've got no plan B. Plus with their defence they're always likely to concede at least once if you've got a competent finisher.

Chelsea. Ruddy little buggers. Getting something away to Juve is still a major ask. Especially the way they're playing right now. Juve will cut them open and they cant rely on outscoring Juve away. I still think Juve and Shakhtar are favourites to go through. Juve should get at least a point vs Chelsea and then there's a good chance they can get 3 points against Shakhtar on the last game as Shakhtar should already be through by then. Tempted to put a bet on Donetsk at 33/1. Chelsea and City both ending up with Thursday Night Football? Oh god

Stale Utd performance. Got the result though, that's all that counts. Or rather they gifted us the result. Top confirmed with 2 games left is neat. Just the League to concentrate on now until the end of the year

and Souness' analysis of zonal marking on Sky the other was quite something too.

Well done to Celtic on a great win against Barcelona. They defended brilliantly and got the result they needed through some clever counter attacking, which was well deserved. Barcelona just didn't look like they had a Plan B.

As for the Braga/United match last night, we looked absolutely dire until the final 10 minutes, where we actually started to play some decent football and move the ball around better. The team selection was rather odd with Giggs/Anderson playing centre midfield together and Welbeck playing on the left wing, when he's not looked comfortable there in the last few games. Our passing was sloppy and sluggish and we kept resorting in long balls to Chicharito, who didn't get many opportunities for 80 minutes.

The penalty we conceded wasn't a penalty, what was Evans supposed to do? Rooney also dived for his penalty.

We look much more settled once Van Persie came on. Once the Braga keeper made that dreadful error and Van Persie capitalised on it with the goal, we started to look more comfortable and retain the ball better. Rooney scored a penalty through pure luck and then Hernandez scored a comedy goal. That and the floodlights going out for 10 minutes, it was a very odd second half.

Valencia played much better when he was moved higher up the pitch, Smalling looked decent and had a better game than Evans, Evra had another solid game, Anderson did alright but gave the ball away a lot in the first half, Giggs did better towards the end of the match and Rooney looked good second half also. Van Persie was fantastic when he came on. Nani not so much, yet again he starts a game where he looks poor throughout. We looked better when he came off injured as he did nothing on the wing.

I'm pleased we've now won the group and can rest players for two games.

Juve have to beat us if they want to get through. We're a point ahead of them and our last game is at home against NordsjŠlland. So a draw is not good enough for them.

It suits us, because they can't just counter attack us now. They have to come out looking for the win.

Gonna be hard, but I honeslty think the hardest match is out of the way (Shakhtar) and we can get a draw in Turin.

Never take 3 points in the Champions League for granted. I learned that last season. But yeah you're right, a point will do you 99 times out of 100. I still don't think you'll get that though unless you really step up defensively.

Yeah and Juve will not give goals away like Shakhtar did yesterday . I wouldn't trust to take that key chance in a big game , he isn't that kind of player anymore.
