    Don’t wanna hear about injuries as an excuse. BVB without Reus, Alacer, Weigl, Akanji, Diallo, Piszczek all out

    I can’t wait. Should be electric.
    Hope we go for them. Forget about Kane and Alli tomorrow. Hope we get a good win to take into the second leg

    Note BVB play some weird slow slow slow quick slow style.

    Like AVB Spurs but with more patience.

    Waiting for us to make a mistake e.g. forcing a pass that isn’t really on. Then they pounce

    Clever.

    Can bring Sissoko on for Sissoko when he tires late on.

    It's an important game,"they don't come much bigger than this Brian," hence the return of the "Custard Lesbians". 2-0 Spurs Son and Sissoko

    Dortmund have been on a bit of a wobble of late and with Reus and Alcacer out I think we have a real chance of building a clear advantage tomorrow night.

    2-0

    COYS!

    Gotta be a back three here, considering all their wing talent.

    ---------Lloris---------
    ---Toby--Dave----Dier
    Trips--Sissoko--Winks--Jan
    ---Eriksen-Son--Lucas--

    They look very exciting going forward, but not so much at the back.

    They may be top of the BL but this is CL (see what I did there?) - if you don't play your best, teams will pick you off ... over to Poch and the lads and give pulisic a forewarning of the lovely times to be had in london

    Really wish we can win the league title first before even thinking about winning the CL. After not winning the league title since 1961, it will look really strange if we win the CL first. Remember, in the old European Cup format, only the league champions would be playing in it. Despite that, won't mind us trying to win the CL since we badly need to win our first trophy since 2008. This match will be all about our mental strength rather than our quality. Just like against Juventus in the CL Round of 16 last season, we are more than capable of beating Dortmund. It was disappointing the way we lost out to Juventus in the 2nd leg at home after doing so well to draw in the first leg away. We got complacent against Juventus at home. We should not make the same mistake this time. Since we are playing at home against Dortmund in the first leg, we should make sure we get a positive result to bring to the second leg away.

    We need all our key players to lift their game. Too bad Kane and Alli are out injured. Without them, we need the likes of Llorente, Son, Eriksen, Lamela and Moura to play to their full potential and help us get the goals. Somehow think Llorente can play a key role for us since he has experience playing in the CL for Juventus. Son has scored 8 goals against Dortmund for Hamburg, Bayer Leverkusen and us. Hope he can continue his goal scoring run against them. It will help us greatly if Lamela is fit to start this match. His work rate and creativity will be a huge asset for us. Want to see Eriksen try those long range shots which he seems to be good at. Moura has scored some important for us this season but he is too inconsistent. Hope Moura will have his goal scoring boot on if he does gets to play in this match.

    I think this match will be won or lost in midfield. A bit worried about our midfield after the way we got outplayed against Leicester. We need experience more than talent against Dortmund. Will prefer if we start Sissoko and Wanyama in this match. It might make us lacking in creativity in midfield but that will help us stop Dortmund. Winks or Dier can come in later in the match as needed.

    We need a big performance from our defence. We must do all we can to stop Dortmund scoring. We will need error-free performance from Lloris, Alderweireld, Vertonghen and Sanchez. Sanchez tends to make mistakes under pressure. Hope he can avoid these mistakes against Dortmund. We must look out for any long range shots and avoid giving away freekicks near our goal.

    It is going to be another tense match. As usual, we need to get an early goal to help us settle down and then go for more goals to kill the game off. More importantly, we need to stop Dortmund scoring to avoid giving them any advantage in the return leg away. Let's hope we will turn up with the right team and meteorology to get a comfortable win over Dortmund to improve our chances to progress to the CL Quarter finals.

    I used to play with identical twins and we used to swap them at half-time as a bonus sub

    We need to be smart. I think we will be. I think we will surprise everyone.

    Huge game, I'm so psyched! Hope the players are too. As I said in another thread, they're coming off a cup loss on pens and a shaky looking 3-3 draw. There for the taking?

    A big win here could be the catalyst for a really strong end to our season, could largely dictate how far we go in the competition too. Would love us to go deep.

    I'm backing a 3-1 win and I'd go with:

    Lloris
    Aurier Toby Sanchez Verts
    Dier Winks
    Sissoko Eriksen Moura
    Son

    Lamela off the bench could be vital, Llorente too.

    COYS!

    Why watch it then? Odd comment.. I found the talk on Lloris' training very interesting and his quips about going for a walk during the session quite funny.

    I typically find his press conferences engaging and strong. He's a man of principle, it's a refreshing change from some of the rent-a-quote loud mouths in charge of other teams.

    Can't remember the last Poch presser I've missed, possibly makes me a bit of a saddo but it cetainly reenforces my love for the club.
