Might aswell get this started, and thankfully that's the last international break until March.

Couple of injury doubts over Lookman & Sigurdsson? Heard Lookman got sent back a couple of days ago with a knock, Gomes also sent back, but just think he was tired, no injury mentioned

Cardiff have won their last couple - which im thankful for, as I hate playing teams due a win - wont be as easy as some would suggest - they're gonna sit deep with 11 behind the ball, and look to catch us with set pieces or on a break

What CBs do we go with? Selection headache for a change

-----------Pickford

Coleman Mina Keane Digne

---------Gana Gomes

Lookman? Sigurdsson? Bernard

----------Richarlison

2-0 Richarlison (2)

I hope to see Walcott dropped and Lookman start if he's fit.

I'd also stick with Mina and Keane at the back.

Should win this easily, but we may have to be patient on breaking them down.

Be the perfect game for Lookman to get a start in really wouldn't it, hope he's fit

I think this'll be the game where he goes to 3 at the back:

                               Pickford

                      Mina   Keane  Zouma       
Coleman                                                  Digne
                                 Gomes

          Walcott               Sig               Bernard

                                Richarlison

I hope not. I hate managers who try to cram in players and change a system that is working well. Weve played 3 cbs in the past and been battered, it's never worked for us.

I'd just have zouma on the bench, basically just because Keane & Mina are our players and likely to be here longer term

And dropping Gana is absolute suicide btw.

Going three at the back at home to Cardiff after only losing 1 in 6 in the league playing 2 CBs. I doubt it.

Will be a tough match I reckon.

They lack quality but they're fairly resolute.

One goal would probably do it but definitely not a walk over this.

People still wanting to see Gana dropped.

I find this mad.

                                   Pickford

Coleman        Keane               Mina     Digne

                       Gana           Gomes     

                            Siggurdson 

Lookman/ Walcott      DCL        Richarlison

I think Bernard is struggling a bit, and a defensive set up by Cardiff won't help him.
Walcott hasn't impressed me much of late, time to give Lookman a chance if fit.
Opinions are like arseholes, everyone has one!

I personally think we should stay with 2 at the back, but he's admitted he likes 3 and I think he's been waiting to get them up to speed to give it a go. I don't think Gueye should be dropped, however, if he did go with 3 I'd rather drop him over Gomes especially at home to Cardiff where we should dominate and it'll be more about opening them up over us defending

@Bally I can drop my season ticket off to you at some point if you want?

Gomes/Gana have formed a really good partnership, without Gana we wouldn't have that energy in midfield or the ability to win the ball back quickly or high up the pitch.

I think he'll stick with the 4 at the back, and rightly so - having 1 on the bench keeps the 2 starting on their toes too.

Bernards playing really well imo - he just bottles it a bit in the 6 yard box, been impressed with him overall though - he may well play as the 10 on Saturday if Sigurdsson doesn't make it
