Not nervous, excited.

Been at work since 7:30am so I can get away early for some grub and beers on the way to the ground with me old man.

COYS!

I’m stuck at home sick so can’t be there tonight. I have just had my first shit since Friday so thinking about this game has helped.

We're waiting for the too drunk post at around 6pm then...
I got distracted. Probably leave now.

What you said will still be correct but my belly will be lined by a full English and the falafel I'll grab at the station.

Wash it down with a latte, the milk will line your stomach.

Bonus today was better than expected (talking recession times, not Wall Street times), so I'm hammered...already.

Just remembering one of the best recent CL ties between Bayern and Juventus.

First leg finished 2-2 in Turin and Juventus had Chiellini, Marchisio and Dybala out injured for the second leg. They were 2-0 up within half an hour in Munich and only a late, late Mueller equaliser took it to extra time. Munich scored twice in ET to finally win the tie 6-4 on agg.

Different Juventus players tonight obviously but this team, even with key players out or not 100%, is also quite capable of getting the result they need. It didn't quite work out for them in Munich but it was very close.

Oh yeah, Juve are serious contenders. If we win, we will be seen as serious contenders ourselves. This match is the real deal.

Hoping for a performance tonight.

Don't mind exiting the competition to Juventus, as there's not really anything to be ashamed of there, providing we play well and don't make silly mistakes.

If they score a couple of worldies, then fair enough.

That said, if we play like I know we can, we'll dick them.

Should be interesting!

Arsenal generally depart the Champions League at this stage most years. Especially against Bayern Munich.

Sorry @WalkerboyUK almost could have had my spare. Hope you get one, always some going on twitter nearer to KO.

Sciatica pain in my back and down my legs, had to buy some crutches and will be dosed up on codeine and diazepam...probably won't be able to make out what's happening on the pitch, but at least I'll be there (y)

Sitting near the dugout so will be wearing a fake moustache and nose in case anyone from work sees me.

It struck me like a bucket of cold water this morning that I've been way underestimating the potential that Juve show up and are just really good. I've kinda gotten it into my head that we have their number.

But they were poor and missing players in the first leg. They are six times Serie A champs in a row, and twice CL finalists in the last 4 years. I keep forgetting just how remarkable that is.

Like most, I've been optimistic since the first leg, but I'm getting the serious jitters that they might rope-a-dope us.

They might, but there's only so much we can control in that respect.

All we can expect from our players is maximum effort and commitment, I don't think anyone would be angry if we were defeated giving it a good go. At the end of the day if they turn up and are the better side, then fair play to them. It won't be the end of the world, we're still in the FA cup and top 4 is to play for. Plus, there's a lot worse teams we could go out to.

A convincing victory for us.

I can foresee no other outcome given our home form in 2018.

Worry not ye nay-saying wankers among us.................

:happy:
