    Well there's a couple of things to be concerned about for this one:

    1. Dzenko scored twice in a 4-0 beatdown of Hoffenheim on Sunday.

    2. Bobby Zamora missed the Wigan match with "a sore achilles."

    In the first instance, however, woeful Hoffenheim actually got off more shots AND shots on goal than did Wolfsburg. These guys have a Swiss cheese defense, and we can convert better than a bottom half of the table Hoffenheim.

    In the second instance, ... well, we have to hope that The Incredible Bobby Z is fit enough to start. Elm left the Wigan match at halftime and went straight onto an i.v.

    I'm hoping to, once again, watch this in the pub with FulhamAg lubricated by a Fullers ESB or three.

    I think it'll be 2-2 and we go through.

    I can't believe I have to bump this before it disappears entirely.

    Not even ONE post about the second match of this cricial tie?

    I just don't know.

    Relax Don I am still trying to digest what I saw on Sunday and what it means for Thursday.

    The away goal hurt, but I still like that we came back to win as far as momentum. The VWs won at home against TSG Hoffenheim 4-0, but that doesn't worry me much -- I think that with Woy's favored XI, a 1-1 draw is in the offering. Zamora just needed a rest -- imagine, the season is 55 games long now, people are getting tired, like Murphy, who is showing his age.

    I get to watch this one! I'm on spring break this week! Come on Fulham!

    If 4-0 doesn't provide a team momentum, then I don't know what will.

    Squeaky bum time until the final whistle, starting now, my friends.

    Hey, we have some Mo too! I'm nervous, but I like our chances.

    Mmmmm let's just say I'd rather my home team came off a win putting it on an upslope, rather than having just shellacked the opponent in my last game.

    I have little fear that we won't score there. I am very concerned about their firepower, especially since they got back on track and are at home.

    The first 20 minutes should tell the tale. We'll need to maintain shape and focus for the 90. If we come out bumbling around, we're probably gonna pay. But we are capable of winning the aggregate.

    Doom and gloom predictions have worked so far, so 3-1 Wolfsburg, but I'll be at the pub hoping for better.

    I really wasn't too impressed with Wolfsburg. That said, all bets are off at this point.

    We just need to nick a goal, something I think we're more than capable of doing.

    COYW!!!

    PS -- Is the game really delayed on FS+? I can't seem to find it.

    Sorry, It's listed on livesoccer tv 'as Fox Sports Plus.. so I assumed they still were affected by the name confusion when Fox announced it. However, I stuck out the interminable wait for the ad trackers to load when I refuse them, and I found it is NOT LISTED on Fox Soccer Plus

    So I will take it off.

    FSC's website lists ManU v. Bayern replay for that slot on Thursday.

    Gonna have to go to the pub to watch it live.

    I will have to say that Wolfsburg at home could be a tough one, but as long as we showed what we did last Thursday in the second half we get through.

    With no Dempsey or Bobby, we'd better play for 0-0 'cause we won't score.

    I think Zamora is still listed as 50-50, but I suspect Roy's being cheeky
