So its the FA Cup this weekend
Hopefully we will go with a strong team and take this seriously, a good cup run could well breed more confidence

Joel
Coleman Williams Mori Baines
Barry
Lennon Barkley Davies Mirallas
Lukaku

Id have been tempted to play Deulofeu but looks like he is gone
Simply simply lovely

When is Stek back? He gets injured a lot for a goalkeeper. Still feel more secure with him than Joel in goal.

I doubt Leicester will put a strong team out, the champions league and survival is more of a priority to them.

I'd say give Lukaku a rest but they is nobody else to play up top is there, he won't bring Niasse in so i'd go

Joel
Coleman
Holgate
Funes-Mori
Baines

Valencia
Barry
Davies
Mirallas

Barkley
Lukaku


Or maybe start Valencia up front, I don't fucking know

Interesting to see what the crowd is.

It's popular to demand that managers take this seriously but crowds are always lower than for PL games (even taking into account that tickets are on top of season tickets).

I'd like to see a cup run but it's more important to me to see the team and club develop so I won't be distraught if we exit. Disappointed yes but not distraught.

Tickets are fairly cheap as they normally are for cup matches so hopefully should be 30,000 plus

I don't like going out of any of the cups early, especially the FA cup. The only thing that would appease me is a run in the champions league. As we are atm we've got to go for this. Maybe new players will shoot us up the league, but this is a must to have a proper go at.

Especially like this because I want to see the youngsters paired up in central defence.

No way

sake

what's the point in all this money if we can't just break the rules whenever we feel like it?

if only we played in red, we'd be allowed then
