Picking a team that could cause serious damage to one of Europe’s established footballing royalties should be a tough task, however even with only Toby out those that are available are more than capable of getting the job done.

As mentioned previously, I believe we’ll win. It’s bound to be less than straightforward these things invariably are, but our players know that they can compete at this level and win. In stark contrast to some of the undiluted cobblers that infests our public relations spin, this is a competition that we’ve graced with a fair degree of swagger.

Not only have the results been good, the performances have more than matched them.

There’s a question mark over Mousa but I cannot bring myself to contemplate Sissoko starting. In fact, at the risk of reverting to type, if this lot can’t unpick Juve’s locks then I’m unconvinced that any better ย answers will be found on the bench.

The Italians may well fly out the traps. In their last 20 away European games, Juventus have scored the first goal 8 times and conceded the first goal 10 times. Add to this form the away goal lurking above their bonces, Pochettino would do well to send our lot out with an extra splurge of menthol rubbed in the centre of their shirts. An early goal from the visitors would take self inflicted fiascos to hitherto unprecedented depths.

Some betting and some additional prattle to follow. You lucky people.

    I think we could see the extreme version of the dark arts, Italian style, no retaliation Delle, let the referee do his work.
    We can do this. COYS

    Juventus often sit close to their own penalty area, conceding possession in order to draw the opposition out of their own defensive shape and create counter-attacking opportunities.Although we didn’t really fall for this trap in the first leg, it was on show throughout and this is what we must be aware of, even if it seems like the opportunity to attack is too great to ignore.

    Another to pay close attention to is Douglas Costa, who terrorised Serge Aurier in the first leg. hopefully Kieran Trippier has done his homework on this one and has the pace and positional awareness to keep up.

    Any slight lack of concentration tonight will be punished as they would any other team in the world TBH.

      Trippier vs Costa is not a good idea

      • Randy Lee March 7, 2018 at 4:48 pm

        Serge is suspended right?

  • Accy March 7, 2018 at 4:14 pm

    I think Rose and Lam-lamb will start

    If we score an early goal they have less chance of catching us than a chocolate dog chasing an asbestos cat in hell. COYS dammit.

    If Son starts, we need his A game.

    If you hum the tune to soul to souls back to life it suspiciously sounds like the bassline to smoke on the water.

      Oasis Don’t Look Back in Anger is the same chords as Greenday’s Basketcase, just slower.

        Oasis Don’t Look Back In Anger is the same chords as every other Oasis song, just in a different order.
