Just the last few games, we’ve seemed vulnerable to a smart through ball, or balls over the top to runners from deep. Happened v Porto and Chavs.
We really need to sort that out, holding a high line and not being alert enough to spot the runs.
Probably need to hold the back line a bit deeper to counter that.
Porto have a few speedy players, need to be careful there.
As a Hendo critic, I have to say he’s been a revelation of late. Has to start tonight, and I think with Gini and Millie. We need to hold that midfield and possibly serve the strikers with slightly longer balls so we don’t get caught out too far upfield. Front three are on fire again and the back four and keeper is nailed on.
I’m sure we’ll go through but i don’t think it will be as easy as some are stating. I rekon we’ll get s 2:1 win but there’s gonna be some tough moments throughout. These ain’t gonna lay down and will be confident they can get through.
An early goal by us will take the pressure off and hopefully we can manage the game like we have recently.
If they get an early goal, we gonna really be under pressure and have to hope we can keep our nerve and don’t panic.
We have been good in that respect all season, but this is a passage into the C L semis !
Looking forward to it, but a bit nervous as well.
