      As for tomorrow night I would expect to see Keita, Diaz, Bobby and Konate in the starting line up. Another tricky game because the crowd know we’re two goals to the good and are expecting in progress before a ball has been kicked.


      think the CL crowd seem to be far more vocal and knowledgeable we will have a great atmosphere knowing what is at stake

      Can’t make my mind up if I’m happy Bayern lost. At first glance it sa yes but I watched the first leg and thought to myself they looked wide open and could see our lads really opening them up. This Villarreal team are strong at the back and they break very quickly

      To make it this far they have to have something to them. No games will be easy from here on out. I think you may be right, Bayern would definitely play a style that suits us.

      Just seems like there are unexpected results in the circumstances. Hope that doesn’t include us tomorrow 😬

      Agree. Let's not count our chickens. Get past Benfica first - looked more than lively in the first leg.

      Athletico to knock them out 2-0 on the night and 2-1 on agg. Suarez at the double!

      Fingers crossed mate.  Right now it's probably even odds between us and City as CL favorites.  If Athletico knock them out then I'll really like our chances.

      We need to do our job first. Just do not lose haha. I prefer the yellow Submarine because on two legs and since Anfield is first, we have a better chance than against Bayern.

      I expect rotation too.

      Hope you're right, but don't think he even got off the bench in the first leg which was a stupid decision by Simeone.

      Yep massive game & a massive week ahead
      But I’m taking the one game at a time approach.
      Hope we come out the blocks sharpish from the off tonight  & just get the job done  then on to the semi final on Saturday 2-0 the reds.

      good solid performance will get us through I cant imagine Jürgen letting any of the lads give anything less than 100%.

      Right it was 3-1 away to Real in Europe last march

      We also lost 2 0 at home to Atalanta in the group stage. Circumstances allowing for the Madrid result, its rare enough we lose games by 2.

      Be stunned if we dont see this out, not only see it out but bag another 2 or 3 goal win

      No Rafa Silva for them who is one of their better players. Thiago not in training yesterday so with that and resting will go for 5 changes

      One game at a time :)

      Of course I prefer to play Villareal than  Bayern. But Emery is a master in European competitions. Not to be underestimated.





      Not so sure mate, Bayern aren’t what they were when we done them last time, I would have preferred playing them again, Villarreal are a more dangerous outfit imo, led by Unai Emery who’s experience in Europe is exemplary, he knows his way around European cup ties that’s for sure, for me they present a much tougher ask, however, over two legs I’d favour us against anyone, a caveat to all of that is we never do it the easy way, so perhaps having a tougher semi final is right up our street ?

      We’re so close now, I can smell the engravers apron !!

      He basically owns the EL, but his CL record is actually not impressive. This is the first time he's gotten past the Rd of 16 in his 7th try, and that's with having coached PSG for 2 seasons.

      Come on mate..... of course my primary concern is our match today, but I am also keeping an eye on the other matches and hoping for the best outcomes to give us the easiest path to another Big Ears.  It is possible to be interested in both ;)

      Well first thing is we have to start much better than we did V City. We have made a few slow starts this season. It's vital that we don't pour forward early on. 100% wired in from the kick off. Might rest Mo. Bobby should start and probably Konate but we have to be ready for them trying to catch us cold.
