After the extravagance of weds` champions league match at Wembley infront of 85,000,we return to cup action in the much maligned but rebranded EFL cup at home to gillingham,currently sitting 10th in league one.
Should be interesting to see quite a few making their first starts this season,yes we will rotate and equally yes we should have more than enough quality to progress,though lower league sides love their days out at stadiums they probably will never play in again.So some thought has to go into making sure we progress,it isnt a friendly or a youth team try out and we have to take advantage of a favourable draw and progress to the round of 16 at the end of october..

I am loathe to second guess managers and do line ups,especially with a home match against sunderland tomorrow,so I will merely suggest a 17 man squad to be juggled with.
Vorm,Lopez,davies,trippier,CCV,walker-peters,toby,wimmer,winks,onomah,eriksen,wanyama,dembele,GKN,Son,carroll,sissoko,janssen,Harrison. maybe edwards too??

Looks pretty sound to do a job and time off for most!!.

Team news v Gillingham: Marcus Edwards could play, Shayon Harrison out. Kane out, Dier/Dembele to be assessed. Poch expects to rotate.
And Rose also out tomorrow but could return against 'Boro or the following week.
Pochettino said Harrison is injured but would have been in the squad if fit.

Chance to rest those with muscle issues from the weekend, chance for some of the prospects we hear so much about to get a run out and a chance to win something shiny. COYS

That looks pretty sorted then, it's been a while since we had a smaller team in the cups, miss these few where we can see a bit more of the squad.
I`m looking forward to watching it after my gig,I dont care its only the league cup,its another game and another game closer to a cup final hopefully.Yes it is lowest on the priorites but to dismiss it as a naff cup or lets lose and avoid extra games,unbelievable.For all the advantages of a year off from europe how do liverpool chelsea use a 25 man squad if not the cups?same for us and thats with europe for a good part of the squad.
We are so much stronger as a squad than last year,so go as far as we can in this cup,i am sure trippier,vorm,winks,carroll and few others do not want us to exit this,besides wins are wins and build momentum regardless of which competition.Glad to see people saying its sold out or just about,i am up for watching any game we play in,just glad its gonna be shown,think coventry 2 years ago was last game not shown or that cypriot team in the EL qualifiers where the one stream was lagging about an hour behind :D if you remember that.

That's what I liked about the Europa Cup, more games to watch. Some of the streams I used to get were pretty poor though. Always cut out when we are about to shoot.

I think the last one not shown was Leicester 2014/15 FA Cup.

The inside track on Gillingham
Posted on 21 September 2016 - 08:30

Our 'inside track' feature continues as we turn the spotlight on our EFL Cup opponents Gillingham with Luke Cawdell, Gills reporter for KM Media.

What has been the reaction of the club and fans to this draw?
Luke: "It’s the kind of draw most people were hoping for. Justin Edinburgh admitted his house was rocking as the two teams were pulled out together in the draw and I’m sure the majority of fans felt the same. Gillingham supporters have to endure plenty of long away trips (they face a midweek trek to Chesterfield next Tuesday night) and so the chance to play a fairly local Premier League team was a welcome change from some of the places we get to visit on a regular basis. Fans quickly snapped up the 3,000 odd tickets available, these were sold out a week before the game. It’s certainly a game that has got everyone excited."

How is our old friend Justin Edinburgh approaching this game? What has he said to the local media in Kent?
Luke: "He is certainly looking forward to it and spoke to me about the pride he will be feeling when he takes his Gillingham team to White Hart Lane. Tottenham obviously holds a special place in his heart and it had always been an ambition of his, once he got into management, to take a team back to the place where he enjoyed 10 years of his footballing career. He knows getting a result will be a tough ask but it won’t stop him and the team from trying. Few would have given the Gills much hope of beating Watford in the last round, trailing 1-0 and missing a penalty, but they did it."

Our fans will remember Jamie O’Hara and Paul Konchesky, but who should we keep an eye out for in the Gillingham squad?
Luke: "Jamie might not make it, unfortunately, due to injury but Konch has been an ever-present at left-back. Gillingham’s in-demand player has been Bradley Dack - last season’s League One Player of the Year. He’s got an Italian-look about him with the long hair but he’s been compared to Dele Alli. He’s a goalscoring midfielder and is just getting back to full fitness following an injury. He popped up with the winner at Watford and always seems to get himself in the right place at the right time. QPR loan striker Jay-Emmanuel Thomas is a former Arsenal player and would love nothing more than showing what he can do on a big stage. Another one worth keeping an eye on is energetic midfielder Emmanuel Osadebe. A former Tottenham foundation college pupil and a player who will just keep running and running, described by the Gills manager as the fittest player he has known."
What is Gillingham’s form like going into this tie?
Luke: "It’s not been great to be honest. Since beating Watford in the last round they have won just one of their last five. They came back from 2-0 down to beat Shrewsbury 3-2 but since then they have lost to League Two Luton in the EFL Trophy and taken just a point from their last three league games, despite taking the lead in all of them. Keeping hold of an advantage is something they need to work on but in contrast to that they have done pretty well when coming from behind. League form will be irrelevant on Wednesday night, however. Gillingham haven’t really got anything to lose."
How do you think Gillingham will line-up on Wednesday night? Any players missing?
Luke: "As mentioned, O’Hara is likely to be absent. Gillingham have had an awful time of it with injuries. Versatile player Aaron Morris suffered an ACL injury soon after signing a new deal and summer signing Lee Martin suffered a broken and dislocated ankle in a pre-season game at Leyton Orient. Both are likely to miss the entire season. Another new signing Scott Wagstaff has only just returned after suffering an Achilles injury eight minutes into his first showing in a game at Billericay. Bournemouth loan striker Joe Quigley lasted just three games before being sent back after suffering a potential season-ending injury and we’re yet to see left-back Bradley Garmston after dislocating a kneecap before the season started. Justin has been tinkering of late, playing 4-3-2-1 at the weekend, but what he’s got up his sleeve for Wednesday night is anyone’s guess. He isn’t blessed with a massive squad so don’t expect many changes. Gillingham are still awaiting a first clean sheet this season - what a time to do it!"

That's a good line up, a nice mix of academy and first team players.

And Wimmer is back!

I'm glad that Lamela and Eriksen are playing to support Janssen too.

Clearly Paul has fallen out of favour and Poch hates him and he is about to leave.

Perfect performance, zero negatives to take away from that.

Great to see the young players playing a similar way to the first team

I couldn't get the stream to work properly so didn't really see much of the game. Saw Edwards make a nice little and shoot fromoutside the box. That's about it. Good to see we made easy work of the game though and Jansen getting himself on the score sheet.
