      As much as we can hurt them going forward, I do have one big worry.

      Ronaldo is guaranteed to try and position himself between the right side of our defense between Trent and Lovren.

      Trent especially has been very suspect in dealing with long diagonal balls over his shoulder and Lovren as we all know is erratic at the best of times. We really need the two lads to be comfortable and know what they are doing because he will only need one lapse and he will score.

      Besides im buzzing i am for the first time worried about a match this season. Never felt like this recently, i guess that's because this is a first do or die match after some time. Step a side from the fan perspective and take an objective look: Real is reeally experienced in CL and i dont think that we have a chance in not conceding so as i see our chance is in counter attack, what do you think?

      Btw i can't stop singing this song since sunday: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytg4JuS_ZR4

      Fair point on both. Suspect it will be a point of emphasis during the build-up.

      Saying that, when I've seen Real this year, they have not looked as impressive as in years past, not as dynamic - and that includes Ronaldo. They will be favourites of course, and hey, it's Real Madrid - but I have been much more impressed with our displays going forward. If we can deal with the kind of thing you mention, I really like our chances.

      Robertson or Thor (before he lost his eye and his hammer) - either of those would be pretty cool.

      Luckily Zidane doesn't rate him so I doubt he'll start.

      I think he will. Zidane will probably start Ronaldo up front and Asensio/Bale on either side to peg back our full backs. And pretty sure, we'll go in with those same intentions.

      Zidane favours a 4-3-3 and I expect him to start those 3 with this regular midfield custodians .. Kroos-Casemiro-Modric

      Watched the semi finals betw Juve and RM and RM is certainly beatable. Don;t let them play flowing football and we should be ok while we will punish their weak defence. Weak link in Modric and we need to play a very physical game to knock them off their stride. We must perform like a dirty dozens. Lets gate crash their party.

      Agree we need to play physical. But is anyone else worried RM making a meal out of every challenge and getting away with it? I fully expect Hendo and Milner to get whistled every time they breathe on a RM player and it throwing us off. Hope I'm wrong!

      Yes, that's what I fear as well, strange penalties gets awarded and final seconds of the game will also see strange decisions by the referee.

      I heard that said as well.
      Half of Spain supporting us ... and indeed with Mo ... the Arab World.

      I think you would be surprised how many English fans have us as their "second club".
