Ajax aren’t the team resembling the many glories of their past. But it won’t be easy. We should win over two legs but the first leg is crucial not to get off to a poor start. We’re in pretty decent form and should be confident of getting something out of the game in Amsterdam.

I’ll go for 2-1 Villa. Bailey and the on fire Watkins.

Think it'll be an away draw, and we win it at home.

We're all going to Athens!

Win or draw for me. Hopefully the former.

And so we welcome back Thursday football, my how I have missed it!

Of course, one shouldn't be so sniffy but my desire for the CL has doubled once somebody made the obvious point that we will play on Tues/Weds and Sat if we qualify.

It will be a great trip for the supporters, I'm missing out due to the proximity of the Cheltenham Festival but wish everyone a fine couple of days away and believe we will come back with positive result. Things are still a bit tight injuries wise but I think Emery will play a strong side even with one eye on Sunday.

1-1

Just dont hope complacency doesnt creep in like we have seen recently in games.  Ajax may not be the team of the past but if they are underestimated they can pose problems.

Hoping pau will get some minutes as a sub as we need him sunday. Id keep konsa and lenglet at cb and have digne start

Tempting to give gauci a debut.

A surprise start for Zaniolo leads to his redemption.

You've got the poll options in the wrong order. Guaranteed defeat now then. :(

Are you also predicting a 'worldie' from him?

I've dampened my expectations frmm 'worldie' to 'shot on target', past 'just stay on your feet for more than ten seconds' and have finally arrived at "don't get booked."

I'll be happy if he didn't fall over every time the ball comes near him.

It is imperative that we FTF.

So that's what I think will happen.

Villa by one goal.

Feel a bit bad that I gave-up on him quite early but he's looked so slow from the get-go. I'd settle for one more classic Cascarino header between now and May which wins us a point(s).
