RuffRob Posted August 22, 2005 Report Share Posted August 22, 2005 Financilly, it has to be yes - £10M at least possibly more. We have never had so much money riding on 90 minutes of football. I thought I was nervouse before the Goodison game - but this is going to be worse. Can we win - On paper we must be seriouse underdogs having to go away in europe and get a result. Can we do it? Against - Villarreal are a goal up, with two away goals - Villarreal are in their own backyard - Villarreal are a very high quality team - We have no competative experience playing away in Europe - We have a fair few injuried player For - Villarreal have a lead to defend - can sometimes put a team on the backfoot, and sometime this can be a teams downfall. How do they approach this game? - Villarreal have only played the one competative game this season and that was us, our match fitness should be well ahead of them now, - We know exactely how to approach the game, - Our players are really fighters and physical - There keeper looked suspect and we have the man to take advantage of this and - Collina is refing, and he won't take no continental 'bullsh!t' I think we need to really get at Villarreal from the kick off - We need at least 2 goals, but in reality I don't think that will be enough. Thing is if we score 3 - we can afford to let 2 in. I would approach this game based on the fact we need 3, but can let in 2. We have to play 4-4-2 and really go for it like we where playing at home. I saw enough in the first game to think we where unlucky to be 2:1 behind, and that we can compeate with this spanish team. To be honest, I actually think we have a better chance qualifying by going there a goal down, than a goal up. I really think if we went there to defend a single goal lead and they have to come out attacking, I think we could end up losing by a fair few goals. COME ON YOU BLUES P.S anyone going?
