I’m not normally one for wholesale changes for Cup matches, but with the efforts the squad has put in over the last 2 weeks and the quality of the opposition who will probably do the same to concentrate on saying up, it will be totally justified.
But still keep a level of experience to ensure continuity and help any youngsters through the game. Unlike that cunt Redkrap who went completely the other way and got fed up with people saying he should be giving some of our upcoming youngsters a game or two instead of some of the underperforming plodders week in week out. Mansfield away … bottom of the four divisions, he named virtually a youth team and one out of favour 1st XI player (cant remember who buthe was out of confidence and favour) … of course we get knocked out. What was shocking was Redcunts reaction … this is what you get when you play younsters too soon!! WAC … it was his choice of team playing to his tactics … yet of course it was our fault for demanding he give youth a chance!!
I still hold a huge grudge against Puell for resting players in the Europa Cup … what is the point of striving to reach Europe and then do that? All we had to do was get a few points on the board and then rest players if necessary later in the group. The other one that shocked me to the core was The Poch, especially the away game at Sunderland. We had a squad good enough to win The Cup, totally safe from any relegation fears and so far adrift from the next teams above us we could have virtually either won or lost most games for the rest of the season and not changed position!!
Sorry rant over … expect lots of changes but keep a strong core of experince. #wembleybeckons
