    I’m flying back from Spain so will be leaving the phones in airplane mode until I get home and turn it on. I’m pretty annoyed with myself as I had tickets. I imagine Wembley will be rocking tonight. Let’s make it hostile. And get the win. That will send out the most perfect of messages. I believe!!!

    I'm not too hopeful, actually. Going into the two matches vs. Madrid, I thought we might get one point from one of the matches. Now that's done. Seeing that the players have a dip in form, maybe caused by their confidence being overly reliant on Kane, and that I think Real Madrid will benefit from a different level of motivation tonight, I'm not too convinced. It doesn't really matter, I think we'll qualify for the next stage anyway,

    Early goals like against Dortmund and Liverpool would work wonders on the atmosphere.

    We can win this. We probably won't, but we can.

    Honestly, yeah. If we win we'll have proved we can beat anyone on our day and I'll start to believe we can go the whole way - as unlikely as it is.

    Kane not ripping his ass off is more important than the result in this single game to be honest.

    Would take a thouroughly corrupt 0-0 draw all day. Would mean that both teams can secure progression by winning their remaining game against APOEL.

    Yep. Sold out so quickly and I've always dreamt of us playing Madrid at home. Obviously would prefer it at the Lane but Wembley will still be buzzing tonight. The small chance of us getting a win against them was enough for me to part with the money to go tonight.

    Just enjoy it.

    We're playing Real Madrid, the best team on the planet, in the Champion's League and most fans hoping for a positive result.

    Pinch yourself.
