AND SO it begins!
The night we've all been waiting for it just around the corner as we step into the group stages of the Champions League.
The ball, the badge on the kit, the CL 'anthem' - we've all had a taste, now it's time for the main course!
Anyway, back to Monday evening and training at Werder Bremen's Weserstadion.
The team trained for an hour from 6pm-7pm UK time, warming-up with the usual 'piggy-in-the-middle' exercise before stretches and then into a game over about three-quarters of the pitch.
