Who the fuck schedules an FA Cup game for 8pm on a Saturday night? I know it's TV, money and modern football and everyone has signed up to it, except they haven't apparently when the 'top' managers all start moaning... Any way I'm old school and I used to like my football, especially the FA Cup on a Saturday at 3pm.

It will be an interesting game this, what team will Don Tony pick? Is he focussing on top 4 and wants to rest a few, although they've just had 10 days off. Will Mr Kulusevski get a run down the wing?Romero and Son back?

Brighton are a decent side this year, should be a good game but well win 2-1 I expect.

Certainly need to throw everything at this tournament I think. I'd like to see Kulusevski playing as a number 10 behind the strikers which is apparently his preferred position.

Romero is indeed back in full training and we've definitely missed him.

We are not playing on a Sunday for once fucking hell.

Good team this lot but we should be winning this.

Time to bounce back from the Chelsea debacles and will be great to see the two new signings. Will more then likely be coming off the bench imo.

Not sure Bentancur is in the country yet?

Ah yes internationals forgot about that.
Will he be back for the game next Wednesday?

Really can’t wait to see him play for us I have a good feeling about it.

Looking forward to this one, though I'd not have complained if we'd gotten a League 2 side at this stage of the competition. Reading in a couple of places that Sonny might be at least on the bench for this one. That would be a big boost. I expect Tony to put out the strongest possible side for this one.

We have missed Romero... I'd love to think he'll drop back in like nothing has happened... yeah, I'll keep thinking that...!

Trossard will tie Emerson/Doherty/Tanganga in knots, so I hope Romero is ready. Looking forward to seeing what he and Dier do with that nasty little Maupay person though.

Put the new guys in asap. Let's see what they can do. They both arrived and trained yesterday so 🤷‍♂️

I think everyone is fit? At least Romero and Sonny are back. Maybe sub them back on to ease them in a bit

Two training sessions to understand a new team and new systems is very early. I think we might get an introduction and a wave to the crowd before they get their first run, maybe against Saints on Wednesday night.....

You're probably right. I'm just eager to see them get after it.

I think we've learned that under the Don, it's the system, not the players, so I think it's a risk to introduce new cogs that haven't been filed down yet.

I see the usual 3-5-2 with Romero picking the passes instead of Sanchez, each of Winks, Hojbjerg and Skipp given freedom to roam (one at a time, natch),and the wingbacks on a short leash. Sonny on for Lucas at the hour rather than the other way around.

Brighton can present a real threat, but I think I see a tight, nerve-wracking wrestle to the whistle coming that nevertheless ends up a comfortable 2-0.

So play a different formation, until we tactically don't have to.

Impose our game on them and don't alow them to dictate what we do... force them to adapt to our game...!!!

This one has been rock solid for me


Used to be properly on Reddit before it was banned.

But then I managed to subscribe to S Sports Plus in Turkey on Christmas Eve last year for £12 quid for the year and that gives you all the Premier League games in HD (including 3pm kickoffs) with English Commentary as well.

Annoyingly, they went and lost the Premier League rights for next season not long after ..
