    i'll add what i put in the team selection thread

    the best news overall is that ronaldo has been off all season, marcelo has been pretty poor and varane is injured , also no carvajal.They have a much weakened back line either because of injury and form so i think Son starting is a must for a quick counter.

    Am picking up my wife at the airport about 15 minutes before kick off followed by an hour or so drive home. No updates of any kind until I get back and watch the recording. Had to send out an message to my sons and buddies that might text during the match to not include me in any messages since I have to leave my phone on for work. Hope I can go without finding out the results until I watch the match.

    Anyone happen to know a good place to drink beforehand which isn't £5 a pint for a midweek game? Needn't be in Wembley as long as there's likely to be some Spurs fans around.

    We played so well without Alli. Why put him in now, especially when he's off-form?

    Wont happen though. Dele and Dier are Poch's undroppables.

    I Consider this game a free hit and hope the players are relaxed enough to play with freedom and confidence. Really looking forward to this and hope I can put this in my memory bank like other great European nights I have had the privilege to see in the past UEFA finals against Wolves and Anderlecht. Hope the place is rocking tonight I for one probably won't be able to talk afterwards

    If we get the Madrid who have started this season then we can certainly beat them. Madrid's biggest problem is the fact that they just aren't clicking and Zidane isn't a coach who can coach that into them, rather than that they may just find their way back into form when everything clicks back into place. My worry is that everything clicks into place for them tonight rather than in the coming weeks. Ronaldo and Benzema have been extremely wasteful, in Ronaldo's case that can't last for much longer - so please, let this wastefulness continue for one more game!

    Always been more worried about this game than the away tie. Think we should adopt the same tactics as the Bernabeu. Sit very deep and counter. Pressing high is asking for trouble -- don't let them counter on us.

    I'm not feeling this one today. I just have a feeling Real Madrid will want to "put things right" after the draw in Madrid and their recent set of results. We just might not be able to handle that.

    Obviously, I hope I'm completely out to lunch, but it wouldn't surprise me if this ended 2-0 to the Francoists.

    Can see what your saying Wembley is hardly a fortress for us and they don't normally get done twice by the same team.

    If you can’t get excited for Madrid at home with a chance to qualify and top our Champions League group. Then why do you even bother

    It's an absolute free-pass of a game.

    We're playing the best team in the world so nobody will criticise if we lose.

    If we do lose we still have two chances to complete qualification, including with a home game against a relatively poor side.

    Plus it's watching Spurs play in front of probably close to 85,000 people at the national stadium against the holders (twice) of the Champions League.

    If you can't enjoy this game, then you cannot have been there when we were huddled round the TV in the mid-nineties hoping that England would get an extra European place through the fair play league.

    COYS!!!!

    Luckily group wise the game is free parking. Though a 3rd straight defeat won't help but I feel we'll get taught a bit of a lesson tonight.

    Doesn't help that linekar has been taking the piss out of benzema , expect him to score a couple in reply

    Not sure I really understand all the negativity.

    They're a fantastic team yes, but we held them at the Bernabeu. And whilst they had some good chances, we very much held our own.

    Come on guys and gals. Show some balls.

    We're going to fucking smash 'em.

    Nah me neither, we showed more than enough last time we played them and unlucky not to win, they're haven't been playing well so they're under a bit of pressure as well.
