7 years ago since we played a semi. But for some reason it's a ghost town in here? 

Bloody delighted, mate - we ain’t ‘fraid of no spooks!

yay no one did mate I wouldnt believe them anyway. If we manage to win this trophy some people will say it was Franks team wot done it. I want Real please.

Robbie Savage has already started tonight.

Pulisic really was a fighter today.  I wouldn't be too harsh on Porto or the ref, because I think he got away with making a fair few bumps look like legbreakers (doing what Porto did to us).  
Comparisons with  Hazard are only not fair in the sense that Pulisic is really his own man.

Not going to complain about the 2nd leg score, we were so much better than them over 180 mins,  as we should be against whoever we play in the Semis.  A 90 min final might be less suited to us though.

The ref really looked like he wanted to avoid suspensions for the semi or final by keeping his yellow card locked.  Porto forced the issue with some fouls, and of course by then it was clear they weren't going to be in the semi anyway.
Porto committed 20 fouls and got 5 yellows.  We committed 14 and got zero cards.  Yes a lot of theirs were for stopping breakaways, and we rarely needed to do that, but it still sets us up well for the semi.  We got no yellows in the first leg despite committing 17 fouls.

Thought it was a German master class in defending. Not a great watch but we’re through.

WELL DONE TO THE BOYS- didn’t think it was possible earlier in the season

We're well ahead of schedule, given the age of this squad. The future is bright.

Well done to TT and the team, thought they would do it though you never know.

Tried to watch though my stream was just too busy so followed snail text on the BBC.

Don't think we will get through the next leg though great to go this far.

Didn’t like this.

Thought that we were too sloppy in final third and too cautious in general approach.

We just didn’t play like a CL winning side.

We did lose this game in the end. 
highly doubt we will get to the final past Madrid.

I am Happy with semi final though. Just not this performance.

But how we played was based on being 2 up from the first leg.

European glory nights are always based on overturning first leg deficits.

Yeah that would be admirable  If we did pull that type of tactical loss agaisnt the likes of Bayern, City, Madrid...

But I suppose losing to Porto just doesn’t sit right with me.

reminds me how toothless our attack can be.
