If we are negative and sit back tonight we are losing this. This mob are nowhere near as good as some are hyping them up on here , we are well capable of getting a result here........

Can't see us getting much from this tonight. A draw would be a superb result, hopefully Tavernier can keep his brain farts to a minimum

Today's match ought to suit us better as Porto will be looking for a game of football.

To date the toughest game of the season but I fancy us to take something from it.

This type of game should suit us as others have alluded to. Will be disapointed if we sit in too much as that is just inviting trouble.

Play our high press game and we'll cause them problems. They are a decent side but not as good as being made out.

Should be played as a free hit for us as they are under a bit of pressure as I'm sure they expected to be sitting top at this stage.

That wad my opinion. They only managed a 2 1 home win against YBs and although we managed to lose to them I didn't think they were very good and we blew it. Definitely think we can get something from tonight if we play well.

I would imagine Ribeira Square will be filling up already. What a fantastic event that turned out to be the last time we were there, and I cannot begin to describe how envious I am of those making the trip this time. On the slightly negative side, be careful with your wallet, Porto is nowhere near as bad a Lisbon, but there are many a pickpocket and opportunist thief around, do not leave your phone on the bar or a table.

Just realised Ze Luis who started for Spartak against us at Ibrox and came on as a sub over in Russia now plays for Porto. Can't remember him troubling us much in they games.

we should have nothing to fear, there isnt the same amount of pressure on the team to deliver as there is in the league because we aren't expected to qualify. Hopefully that plays to our favour psychologically, a pressure off allows us to play better.

Totally mate, we have to fight for everything from the very start to the end and not just sit back and invite pressure. This is a game we are more likely to lose than draw or win, so I would hope the players feel the pressure is off and try to express themselves and try to prove people wrong.

What have we got to lose?

Agree mate. Think it'll be a good game tonight. Think it'll be quite open and should get a little more time and space to impose our style on the game. Regardless of opposition we have shown in the past when teams play open we can compete.

Morelos is on bench.

I would not have thought so for this game as we will be sitting in more with Morelos fighting for every ball. I think even in the league we are going to have to find a way of getting both playing now but Gerrard doesn't seem up for that.
