Sometimes you need a bit of luck - today we had more than our fair share.

Oh wow!!!! I'm glad that's over.What is it they say "if you win when you play c##p it's the sign of a good side",well we must be world beaters then!!.There seemed to be no urgency in anything we did everyone seemed to be stuck in second gear.Agbonlahor was a total joke he has to be the laziest player on this planet.Apart from the mix up for their goal thought Cuellar was solid as was Laursen.Hokey-cokey was our best player by some distance.On the plus side the tie is as good as dead so we can look forward to the group stages and hopefully much better performances.

They couldn't handle Gabby and it was him who got the first guy sent off which I thought changed the game. It was a proper game on a proper field with no groundsmen in sight. Nige scores 2 in 2 whereas Marlon has now missed 2 of the easiest sitters in 2 games. The Fonz should have had a run out especially against 9 men but it looked like MON wanted to rest GB and Nige towards the end.

Was it just my eyes deceiving me or was the pitch playing extremely slow? The ball didn't seem to run and I think that was the reason so many passes went astray. There was one particular pass that Barry tried to play square and it only got about half way to its intended target. Not a vintage performance by any means, but as they say in golf, you don't draw pictures on the scorecard you only record the score!

will take that, think the obvious missing link is a top striker, but 3-1 away from home in Europe with a young team still learning, that'll do nicely! Job done.

I thought the pitch played a massive part. Very relieved that we got through a tough tie. Should batter them out of sight at home on a good playing suface. The future's bright, and so is the present!

Nigel I will settle for a home win I think the days of battering teams is long and truely over. Even poor teams play out of their skin when the money from Europe is available.

Well we won, and that makes two important away victories in the space of four days, so what do we really have to complain too long and loud about? A 3-1 away victory in competitive european club competition is not to be sniffed at nowadays, so congrats to MON and the lads on a job well done.

'Valid points' is Col's middle names Nigel-not-Reo. So very often the voice of sense and reason. Gabby seems to be coming in for some flak, undeservedly so in my opinion. Admittedly, like most of us, I am only going by what I witnessed on tv, but as Villan444 says, they simply couldn't handle Gabby, and he was fouled, hauled to the ground, at every opportunity. I thought he played a very important part in our victory.
