We will win and advance just to suck us all back in again

Scoring a goal would be a good start. Not convinced we'll even do that.

Hoping for an early goal to settle the team, but it'll do nothing for my shredded nerves. NLD aside, this is the biggest match of the season.

I think Milan lost again last weekend so their form hasn't gotten any better but ours has gotten worse.

They showed how easy it is to play against us in the first leg so I suspect not much will change. Sonny will still start, as will Kulusevski despite his own run of poor form sliding under the radar.

I have no idea what's going to happen.

This is a match that screams out for Richarlison. There won't be any room for Sonny to run, except back towards our goal to receive square passes from the wingbacks. We need Richie, Harry and Deki banging into them around the perimeter of the box. Theirs, not ours, mind. A bit of magic from any of those three and it's all to play for. Ten-yard passes bouncing off Sonny into the space between their runners and our CB pylons, and we'll need a miracle like we got in Amsterdam.

I know the gossip seems to suggest that not going through tonight will hasten his exit and possibly lead to him not even seeing out the season but I imagine he’s got pretty strong professional principles which will mean he won’t walk away.

Not surprised? I am. WTF use is Son when they're gonna pack the box?

I think Dier's absence - which I had totally forgotteb about - might be a blessing in disguise. Lenglet wouldn't be my forst choice in the middle, but he may deal with Olivier fucking Giroud.

Would have preferred to start Richarlison and sub on Son, but no such luck. Hopefully today is the day he get's back on track. And we need 2 goals. Please don't sit deep!

And I was just freaking over the Bayern/PSG match on the Spurs feed, but then realized there was a delay. Phone almost got smashed! No anger issues here.

I'm not surprised because Sonny appears to be undroppable, despite his poor form. It would have been more surprising if Richarlison had started.

So Romero and Lenglet now both out if we get through, and walking a tightrope for the rest of the game.

Lenglet yellow was bogus. Need to score to take some pressure off soon.

We still haven’t really worked the keeper.

It’s actually a joke the way we play.

Son is a mere shell of what he was.

There is something wrong there.
It baffles me why he’s rarely dropped. We’ve carried him again this half and effectively been a player down because he’s been anonymous. Again.

We’ve shown flashes in that half but it feels like one of those games where we could play until midnight and still not score.

As bad as Son is, he is the only one putting them under threat. We look really slow out there, especially Peresic and Royal. It won't happen, but I'd switch to a back, 4 put Kane at 10, and Richie up top. Formation isn't working.

There's no consistent intensity is there ? It's just a bit here and a bit there. Huffing and puffing but nothing to see...all a bit meh.

Our only avenue is on the right and frankly, Emerson is carrying Kulusevski at the moment. We have no creativity in central areas given Kane has been shut out of this match the way he was in the last and our left side is laughable. Perisic is actually a waste of time and Sonny is cooked.

I’d drop Kane into an AM role, hook Son and put Richarlison up front.

We cannot go on like this.

We might be watching different games mate. Son has been woeful. Royal has been our best player, to my eyes anyway.

We agree on what needs changing though.😉

Also, can someone please explain to me why it is that Perisic is such a great player at international level but so goddamn awful when he plays for Spurs?
