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.
I normally take a pretty positive view on things, but it's a gut feeling I have on this one. I'm excited as hell, but I can't help but feel we're in for a slightly rough time.

I agree with everyone who says this is pretty much a free game, so we don't have to worry too much about things if we don't get a positive result. But you just know we're going to be panned if we don't have a good showing, particularly after our last two results!

Anyone who has my mobile number - i'm going to see Thor Ragnarok tonight, so if we score just text me something obscene. If they score, text me something even more obscene.

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.
I assume you saw 'The likely Lads' episode on this theme.
I won't spoil the ending for you
but is heavy rain forecast for this evening in the Wembley area?

Son needs to play if we are going to disrupt Real. Their young right back had an absolute mare against Girona when they put a lot of pressure of him - it was mistake after mistake and he got taken off after 60 mins. I'm also thinking considering Madrid play so narrow Aurier and Davies/Rose are going to be so important if we intend to retain possession up the field.

This one is going to be a battle

I’m like a kid at Xmas for this one, expecting best atmosphere at Wembley yet fingers crossed

Try to get there early as possible everyone, queues and security is going to be murder. Gates open 6:30.

Whatever happens, tonight is the sort of game we used to dream about in the 90s, when I used to have only David Ginola to use in footy arguements with my Man Utd and Liverpool supporting mates. Real Madrid, with full Galactico squad, at home, at Wembley.

The "we haven't won anything yet" crowd be damned, we have made it, and we need to enjoy it to the max.
