You never know.... Real Madrid all but gave me a heart attack with their game today! If there is such a thing as willing your team to win through the TV, I think I did it. LOL

Ajax is good but not on the level as the English, German, and Spanish Champions.

Never, never....

It was just done by the same people who ranked England 3rd in the world after their dismal WC and then Euro performance.

Ok, while I can't disagree at all with your champion guess (Go Real!), I'm not sure what you mean by "now that the poor teams have been knocked out". They play 6 games in round 1 (each team plays all the other teams in its group twice), and since they are only on the second game in this round, no teams have been knocked out yet.

Ashii - your boys have to make their toughest road trip in the Champions League out to Dortmund. Big stadium, fans who spend 90 minutes cheering for their team. I'm thinking Dortmund claims a 2-1 win.

Fortunately, my boys have been playing their best soccer in their CL games. I'm keeping a positive outlook. (Plus, I'm not entirely sure that an away game at Dortmund could be considered tougher than an away game at Man City...)

I'd rather play in front of the German fans too.

(I know that's not what you meant though.)

Good job for Ajax!

I warned you Dortmund isn't a fun place for the visiting team.

I am very happy with Ajax's display and even happier than Man City and their money are currently last in the group.
