I'm not filled with confidence by BR's comments today. He's playing down our chances due to the financial gap between us and other teams but that's rarely, if ever, not been the case and we've managed to do well. It seems a bit like he's getting his excuses in early. He needs a big performance tomorrow night just as much as the players do.

I see where he is coming from and although, inside he may be confident, he has to play his cards close to his chest and deflect the pressure onto the opponent.
Our European performances have been much better in qualification games (on the whole) under BR and the only highlights for me in group games have been the Man City 3-3 game, the draw in Gladbach and the fantastic away win at Anderlecht.
This is new territory for a lot of the squad and we are still inexperienced compared to many other European teams at this level.
Domestically we have not been at our best for much of the season and the defense/ goalkeeper positions have been particularly stretched and although we are leading the way domestically - as usual - we are still unconvincing in Europe at times and need to be at our very best all over the pitch to raise the bar for european knock-out football.
