    Lamela is literary unfit, that's why he wasn't even on the bench on Sunday. And Sissoko is someone we normally play in these games.

    If I'm driving up is it best to take my hubcaps off the car just to be on the safe side?

    I know these are the games we all prefer - either home or away at a shit team but I dread these fixtures. Awful pitches, players who aren't really technically good just wanting to go out there and bash our players up. I absolutely hated those games last season with Rochdale and Newport (Rochdale replay at Wembley wasn't too bad).

    Especially when we tend to rotate heavily and it looks like we have 11 strangers on the pitch. Just hope we can get in there, get it over and done with and nobody gets injured. Hopefully get in the hat for the fourth round and move on.

    Better than getting a top team and Knackering the best players, dropping points in subsequent games or even worse getting knocked out. Think we have moved on from 11 strangers and just rotate from the squad.

    The games are played on a weekend the Premier League is suspended so I couldn't care less about knackering players. They get a weeks rest. Am I meant to be empathetic towards millionaire footballers who can't play 1 game in 7 days?

    If I was manager, I'd play this line up against Tranmere/Southport

    Gazzaniga
    KWP - Alderweireld - Foyth - Rose
    Eriksen - Winks - Sissoko
    Lucas - Kane - Son
    But we know Poch won't - it'll be a team involving the likes of N'Koudou, Llorente, Wanyama etc. players who won't be here in the summer, playing like they've never played with eachother before despite training 2 years together, instead of just going full strength and destroying them.

    The other guys do need game time, and while there's a chance they get caught out like last season, poch needs to fix this since other teams manage just fine playing their second line team e.g. woolwich in Europa League

    They do - we have the League Cup for that though. This trophy tends to come in midweek where we can afford to rest players. We do a pretty good job of switching our team up in that tournament too.

    As we are also likely to be knocked out of the Champions League, the Europa League will also provide a good opportunity too.

    Football is all about the culture and experience. Being at games. Seeing other clubs. Having a laugh with them and at them. Rochdale last season was an awful game but it was fun going. Personally, I love matches like that. Generally, I love away games.

    Brilliant.

    So we play Cardiff AWAY on the Tuesday and then have to play in an FA Cup away game just 3 days later which will make it 3 games in 6 days. Though I imagine our players would just stay in Wales.

    I mean, both Tranmere and Southport also play on the Tuesday (both are away) but damn the fixture dates haven't been kind to us at all this year have they!?

    Yep, appears so. Ridiculous to make fans make that journey on a Friday.

    Woking v Watford also picked for TV, a local-ish fixture that they could have put into the Friday night slot without much fuss... but no, they put it as 2 pm Sunday instead.

    Cue some BT Sport has been ex-player who couldnt hit a barn door with a banjo slagging off our support for not attending.

    Fuck BT and fuck Sky.
