    I’m getting a bit excited… but worried with our walking dead syndrome at the moment.

    Reckon we’ll line-up in a 3-4-1-2 (or 3-4-3)

    GK Hugo
    CB’s Toby, Sanchez, Vertongen
    Midfield Trippier, Disco, Dier, Rose
    Up top, Erik, Dele, Lucas

    The bench is going to be interesting… 🙂

    Spurs v Ajax should be a great game. Can’t see it being a nil nil either same for the Barca v Liverpool game.

    Nothing compares to European nights in the later rounds. I felt a little cheated by the Porto tie as they were no match for Liverpool. Look, we want our teams to progress first and foremost but you also want to see them play the best that Europe has to offer.

    Ajax are a true dark horse for this tournament. You don’t knock out real and Juve if you’re not the real deal. I know Spurs fans won’t take them lightly but sections of the media still do, which is just weird.

    As for Liverpool, we finally get to see Messi play against us. Our defence could have been better against Huddersfield. They will have to be at the peak of their abilities to keep Barca out. Fabinho is going to be very important here too but I’ve got a lot of confidence in this Liverpool side. We’ve got a very solid chance against this on form Barca, who just recently nailed down La Liga.

    If we can hold our heads, this first tie could play right into our hands. Barca will be very confident in coming forward, leaving them open to be hit on the break. If their defence is as iffy as you hear, we could cause them problems.

    Of course there is the chance that they will give our defence a challenge of the level that it hasn’t had to deal with yet and we might find ourselves in deep trouble. Ya, so i can really see Liverpool scoring 1 or 2 but the question is more on how many Barca score.

    Taking nothing was from Ajax who have been fabulous in the CL but Real are currently in a complete mess losing consistently even to the bottom team at the weekend.

    I expect Real to ship out players to create funds and I wouldn’t be surprised to see their gross spend approach half a billion £’s in the Summer as ZZ starts to rebuild them.

    I was going to use the phrase ‘prepare for the worse and hope for the best’ but that would feel as through we’re fighting relegation, which we’re not.

    I think first of all, a big pat on the back to both sets of teams in Spurs and Pool reaching this far. It prove, they are here on merit and their quality and efforts have so far paid off.

    I’m with Mak on the point of having to be at our ultra best against Barca and I don’t really see despite this stage of the season, any signs of tiredness or any feel of ‘resignation’ from the players to head for the sunny beach.

    We have to stand up and be counted for and play without any fear by asserting ourselves. I’d say 1-1 would be more than a decent result for us on the night.

    Liverpool will be Barca’s biggest test of the season and with due respect to both Spurs and Ajax I expect the winner of the CL to probably come from this tie.

    Poch says he is “living his dream” in the press conference. That really the best message to convey before their biggest game in a long time?

    Can’t see a problem Mikus it is a massive game for Spurs their first Semi Final since 1962 and and a real chance of getting to the Final and if succesful in a one off game v Barca/Liverpool who knows?

    Sometimes it’s written in the stars as Garry Neville famously said.

    Nine, I don’t doubt that from the perspective of the fans, they are in a dream. But I don’t think the manager should be in a dream, particularly when’s he not yet won anything. Would a winner like Fergie/Mourinho/Conte etc be coming out with things like this? It’s too nicey nicey for me.

    Lads @ ESPN are predicting an easy tie for Liverpool,and they believe Barca will struggle to score and I agree completely.

    The mighty cocks/chickens from norff Landan should have to much for the weed-smoking,bicycle-riding,prostitution-loving chaps from Amsterdam

    Mikus, I get where you’re coming from but Spurs were all but out at the Group stages and they wouldn’t have been expecting to go this far or to eliminate City and to play Ajax in a CL Semi Final in their new ground is probably a bit if a dream for all those connected with Spurs.

    You wouldn’t rule out them getting to the Final either.
