      I know we will create chances, it is who is going to put the ball in the back of the net!!

      Don't know about putting Trent in the side , thought he was really poor when he came on against Palace I'd also go for a front 4 Nunez, Jota , Diaz and Gakpo with Mo as a sub ,just feel we need a bit more physicality and Gakpo gives us that

      Maybe some changes in midfield and defence then? Because on the last 2 performances by God do we need it.

      There will be changes up front that's for sure

      Honestly, I would be happy with a great effort from the boys, from start to finish, then build on that effort to finish out the rest of the season. Thats all I want. Can we overcome this 3-goal deficit, yes, we have the players who are capable, we just need the effort from them.

      We need as many creative players on the pitch simultaneously that we can get away with, I think that means Trent Mac and Szobo all starting.

      Good point on the physical aspect, helps Gakpo's been having some real good cameos lately. Stick him on the left side and go Jota/Nunez up top. Maybe see if Jota has a spare pair of boots he can lend Nunez.

      Love to see a comeback but away from home with the current squad mentality…….

      Yea, I'm with you.

      We can turn it around but it's the current form that suggests we'll struggle

      Who knows though and we know Jürgen will have the boys fired up so have to hope for the best and yet another great European night

      an early goal and you bet your left one they get nervous

      Early goals are exactly what I fear because usually they're scored by our opponents.

      I saw the size of the pints they were drinking on Sunday evening.

      Fancy West Ham to get one over them on the basis of those title celebrations.

      I think I'd go:

      Allison

      Gomez     Konate     Virgil     Robertson

      MacAllister

      Trent         Szoboszlai

      Salah           Jota         Gakpo

      My only concern is Szoboszlai is better from the right side but then so is Trent. Jones not up to speed yet to fill that left sided 8 so I'd go with the experience of Dom.

                            Alisson

      Trent     Quansah     VVD     Robertson

                              Endo

                  Szoboszlai    MacAllister

             Salah          Jota          Diaz

      Unless injuries I'm not aware of. No messing around. Just a solid team.

      ts Atalanta not Madrid or Munich, this is well on if our forwards can remember why they get paid

      And our defenders realise if you play a high line, and those ahead of you aren’t pressing closely, you’re gonna be vulnerable to the counter.
      So F***ing think on your feet and do something about it 🤷‍♂️

      May be we should throw caution to the wind and go 3-4-3.

      Play Mo,Jota,Diaz,Nunez and Gakpo in the front 7 with Trent inverted and Mac. Joe,VVD and Robbo..3 at the back...Attack in numbers..defend in numbers.

      They will have the jitters early on as it's not easy to decide how to approach the game.They will definitely sit back and try to kill it so we have to go ALL OUT ATTACK.

      An early goal might panic them.

      It's a big if...but if we can get to within goal of drawing level,(with at least 30/40 minutes left) then we might see some jitters from them....otherwise they'll (as you say) just sit deep and try to nullify our constant attacks. That's what the vast majority of teams in their position would do. Our defence will need to be concentrated and alert, this can be challenging when for most of the game I suspect they won't be doing a lot of defending. We have to score 4 goals without reply to go through...or 3 to take it to pens...Not beyond us when playing well and firing on all cylinders...Anyway...we'll find out soon enough.

      Call me crazy but I feel we have a good chance of turning this around. We've show we can do it.

      We have to turn up though.
