Not easy, but glad we're in it. Hope it gives even more reasons, if any were needed, for Wenger to buy quality additions now!

If we can get any points from OT on Sunday, maybe a player or two we'll enter the International break in a much more relaxed atmosphere.

No group will be easy GV, but when you look at the teams we missed out on this was a very nice draw!

Just happy we're in it Rocky, but you're right, could have been worse. Dortmund spoilt it though. It's good though, this team needs to keep it's concentration up and needs to be tested.

Its a very difficult group and on the basis of average strength of each group member, probably the toughest group. No free points or free lunches out there!
