Let's go ahead and stop this discussion where it is
:lol: 👍

I’d quite like to see us try to win this. We’ve got Venezia, Spezia, Roma, Madrid, Cagliari. There’s plenty of room for carefully resting key players while putting a very competitive team in Madrid and in Rome.

Multiple thoughts about this game -

One is to play reserves since we have a bad schedule (in terms of sheer number of matches, not difficulty). And our players are feeling the pinch, this is specifically for the midfield.

Two is the fact that we need to avoid Bayern, Chelsea, Liverpool, etc. But also have to check here who would be the 2nd place teams that we could face.

Three, and most importantly, I am sick of losing to Real and Barcelona. Fuck them. Winning matches like these is important psychologically. Imagine the confidence our players and coach would have in next phase.

Let's go for it. Same team as against Shakhtar, except for De Vrij coming in for Ranocchia.

Also it doesn't matter if we go out in R16. This is our 4th year in CL, and our biggest win was at home vs Tottenham. And that was a match we got dominated in.

A big scalp is what we need next to our name.

It's going to be interesting how we play WITHOUT PRESSURE against a big team, the times we played against Madrid and Barcelona in CL in recent years we were obligated to win, this time it's no obligation but would be much better to be 1# because of 1-Money 2-Pride 3-Possible rival on 1/8's.


We can actually discuss that on other thread, i remember there was one about covid19.

We are in regardless correct?

Why not play subs?

I don’t care if we get spanked we are in round 2. Get that additional transfer money.

I don’t follow La Liga so not sure what to expect from Real. Real at home is always an intimidating prospect regardless of their coach or whatever superstar line up they have - however, the first game against earlier this season showed we can get in about them and F S up. Let’s do it, no fear! F it!
