    v Rotherham United (A) Pre-Match Thread

    Carson Wisdom Keogh Tomori Forsyth Huddlestone Johnson Mount Jozefzoon Lawrence Waghorn I hope we go for a balanced midfield in this one. I have a feeling that if we get these three out there they will establish themselves for a while. I love Bryson, but he should be an alternative to Mount for me.

    With the Lords of Midnight reference, I'm assuming you're thinking of a point and click adventure game? If that is the case, try Broken Sword. It came out in the early 90s but the animation is hand-drawn 2D and looks great to this day. It's been remastered for smart phones, so you can grab it pretty cheap from an app store. It's the best point and click game I've ever played - the second one is excellent too.

    Jack Marriott

    That is a paper-thin analogy. By the time I got to the end I forgot the point you were trying to make and starting thinking of Max Bird as Tim from The Office and Jack Marriott as Gareth.

    Where are you watching the game?

    v Hull City (A) Match Thread

    I think we'll see Huddlestone early in the second half if the team looks out of sorts in the midfield. So happy to see FloJo and Waghorn starting. I think Waghorn - Marriott - FloJo will be the front three to establish themselves as the season progresses. I can't recall a time when we had so many options in attack. It's delightful.

    Mason Mount

    That's step 2 of my plan. Step 1 is become a billionaire.

    Mason Mount

    Yeah, the dream scenario would be for him to help us get promotion this season. Then get loaned back to us for our first season in the Prem. Then Chelski decide to flog him to us after that. The chances are slim, but it wouldn't be the first time Chelsea have let talent go without properly recognising their potential. See Keven De Bruyne. See Mo Salah. See Romelu Lukaku. See Arjen Robben. The list goes on.

    The loan thread

    Does anyone else find it odd that clubs wait until the last day of the window to do all their business. I don't know about everyone else, but I would get canned in my line of work if I did everything at the last second.

    Timi Elsnik - joined Mansfield season-long loan

    Good move for him. You wouldn't expect a player like him to come into their own until their mid twenties, really. You get the odd prodigy - we let one go in Hughes and we have an even better one in Mason Mount right now. Hopefully he can get a full season under his belt and rip the league up, then come back and properly compete for a place in the team next year. Prem or Champ.

    What's happening with George Thorne?

    I'm really hoping that the lack of activity is an indication that Lampard sees something in him, but thinks he needs a few more 90s in the U23s before throwing him on the bench. For the way we want to play, he is the ideal anchor if we can get him back to his best. Him and Tom competing for the position at the base of our three is the stuff of dreams.

    Chris Martin - Signed for Hull City on a season long loan

    I'll always love him. My favourite ever Derby striker - I was too young to properly appreciate Wanchope and Sturridge. All the best, Chrissie!

    Max Lowe - joined Aberdeen on loan until Jan

    Absolutely. Hopefully they will recognise his attacking potential and play him on the wing up there. He has a great first touch, beats his man well, has bags of pace and can put in a wicked cross. From what I have seen, his marking and positional sense isn't great, and he's weak in the tackle. We have a resurgent Forsyth and Malone here battling out for that spot, with Olsson still to get fit and the possibility of Tomori covering there if there is a real crisis. First team football would do him good.

    last night's highlights

    I think so. I have a feeling Bryson and Mount want to play the same game and could be a good combo for when we feel like teams are going to sit off us at home. Johnson just adds some steal to the midfield and wins his headers. Huddlestone is the player we need to get us playing in the right area of the pitch. This formation needs a calm, reliable option for the defenders to pass to. That's him all over. I would actually like to see these as the main options for the midfield positions: Huddlestone/Thorne Johnson/Evans Mount/Bryson The metronome sat deep, and the physical presence sat alongside the guy who will playing most of the game in and around the area. I'm not sure where Ledley would fit in. He's a good player with bags of experience, but I don't think he's mobile enough to play either of the front two roles and he's too sloppy positionally to play as the anchor. We're bound to have injuries, so having him as a backup will be useful. Maybe in the Johnson role.

    What's happening with George Thorne?

    I will be so excited if I see that George is starting tonight. I just feel like he's exactly what we need. And...I miss him 😂

    Hull (A) Carabao Cup Match Thread

    Carson Wisdom Keogh Pearce Lowe Thorne Johnson Holmes Jozefzoon Waghorn Marriott Not ideal playing Waggy on the wing, but him and Marriott both need minutes and he's played there before. I'd love to see Thorne given a chance here too. We all know what he can do in that DM role - if he can recapture any of that form then he would be a nailed on starter in this team.
