We’ve just got to come out of the traps awake & not gift them anything they can then hang on to. We were incredible last night. I wouldn’t want to give them another head start in the reverse & have to rely on another “other world” performance to edge through. As you say, the tie is in our favour with 2 away goals. Let them huff & puff & blow themselves out. If we do that, we will destroy them over 90 mins.
Exactly. Even if they score they will know that one goal will win it for us, so they’re stuck with the choice of sitting back and defending (if they score first) or pushing on for the true leveller.

Personally I would go on the counter. Absorb their attack and hit them when they’re vulnerable. As you said, play them at their own game. It’s not as if they have any choice in the matter after yesterday!

Errr we’ve got two games before this one - two cracking away matches too. This thread shouldn’t even be up yet.

That's a good point honestly, we shouldn't take our eyes off the league, that is still the main objective, we have a massive dogfight on our hands for top 4. All this CL fun is good and gravy but actually winning it is still rather unlikely, and the more likely route of continued progress for us is qualifying for next season's CL.

Anyone know what would happen if we did win it and Woolwich won the europa and we both finished out the top 4? Would there be 6 English teams or could we finally get some revenge on Chelsea?

Edit: Yeah it's a max of five so 4th would drop out. Apart from those cunts winning something that would be amazing. Not sure what would be better, getting revenge on Chelsea or the scousers missing out on 3rd by the 2 points we 'cheated' them out of.
