Not bothered about this, should keep the players fresh and free from injury. 

Tachidis, Watson, Appiah, Janko, Steele, Dias, Concalves, Bridcutt ... is play that lot. 

Obviously need to wrap the CBs in cotton wool as I think we only have Fox. Hefele has got an Achilles so I’m assuming he’s out for a while.

There is always a big shock in the cup, why can't it be us again. 

Hazard, Pedro, Willian and Giroud probably won't start. It will probably be a second string defence. It could leave us with an outside chance of winning. 

I know the temptation would be to rest players but we have no midweek games for a while. We can manage.

I agree, play our best team, no midweek games for the rest of the month so nothing to lose 👍

I like your thinking, til I remember Arsenal U18's smashing four goals past us. 

I just hope we don't embarass ourselves like when we went 3-0 down against them a few years ago and it would have been ten if they didn't decide we were too pathetic to keep trying against.

Cracking day out irrespective of the result . .. Meet up at the Sloaney Pony for a noggin or 5 before the game , then back again afterwards for a few more followed by a rather tasty Italian at a small bistro near here .. Whats not to like ????.  ( maybe the score )

Stranger things have happened Chaz.

The good thing about today is that we are expected to lose...........so any kind of result, even a draw, is a big bonus.

Still, as you say mate, it's all about not embarrassing ourselves on the pitch.

Well that's my tenner on, can't help thinking it would have been more enjoyable to chuck it in the middle of a street and see people go to pick it up

Can’t believe folk are suggesting playing anything other than our best side. What’s the point otherwise?

I don't think any defence we could put together would be able to deal with the Chelsea attacking force arguably though darikwa and janko are 2 of the fastest footballers at our club....? Just got to hope for an f.a cup miracle

Feels like a team selection that he feels deserves to take part in the occasion, with a full week before our next match. 

 

Early doors in the game but we're chasing shadows.
