    v Manchester United (a) Match tHread

    Can’t speak for everyone but I was just giving him a rest, had no issues with him recently.

    No foreign players please, we're British.

    Always feel that we should be opening up to the foreign market more tbh, often British players are overpriced and aren’t as consistent. Seems to me our scouting net isn’t very wide... that said all I care about is how they play on the pitch not where they’re from so I’m more than happy to have a whole team of brits if they keep winning!

    Yeah it’s certainly a problem but I’m struggling to think of who else to play there... ideally we’d have Evans fit but that’s not the case and I doubt Thorne will play. If it was up to me I’d play him next to the hudd mind

    Ben Davies

    Thought this was the spurs defender for a second, was gonna say! Can’t say I know much about this bloke, but I can’t see the need for another centre back unless Pearce leaves. I suppose that’s pretty likely, in which case Davies would be a significantly lower wage alternative and younger too. Quick google suggests he can play left back if needed to so decent versatility to have on the bench.

    Uni freshers week so I wont be at this one, but I’ll have the tele on hoping we can make a miserable night for Jose! I’m gonna be controversial here however and say we approach this game a bit differently. As much as we love to see the sort of attacking football on the front foot as we did on Saturday, we’re going to get cut open if we deploy that in this game imo. Man united have quality many classes above us no matter what you think of Mourinho so I believe we don’t approach this like any other game. Doesn’t mean we play hoof ball mind, just be a bit more cautious defensively and play more on the counter. As such I’d look at going with a 4231 like so... Roos Wisdom Keogh Tomori Malone Huddlestone Ledley Josefzoon Mount Wilson Waghorn Rotate the team and give players chances who’ve featured in earlier rounds imo.. it’s only fair, and it’s not like that team is devoid of quality by any stretch.

    v Brentford (H) Match Thread

    I’ll do a full write up of what I saw at some point, as a disclaimer it’s pretty much all positive! But I must say I was actually quite disappointed in Bennett today, particulary second half. He tired a bit but he was making quite a few poor decisions, I can see why Nugent was getting frustrated.

    Bradley Johnson

    Was excellent today as he has been in previous games. Still makes me a little nervous having him in the defensive mid role because his odd mistake makes him not quite suited but he’s certainly better than ledley in there for winning the ball back and distributing. One of the main reasons for the win today and long may that continue. I agree with others on the thread that I’ve always thought when he’s got a bit of confidence Johnson actually has more intelligence and awareness than we give him credit for, it’s just sometimes his technical ability that lets him down. He’s a real confidence player as well, when he’s been stuck in a rut he’s misplaced passes all over the show, but when he’s on form like he was today he’s a real midfield enforcer. Most touches of anyone in a derby shirt today including the centre backs, that shows his impact.

    He was good but mount was robbed of that award, best individual performance by any player this season imo against such tough opponents. Praise due to the whole midfield mind, Johnson was excellent as well.

    Mount is a ducking wonderful player, all round play is fantastic

    Give it a rest mate Jesus, is Chris Martin your son or something?! Hes gone, move on from it...

    As expected really, tho I was half expecting Waghorn to start as well. Main concern for me is whether the team can performed two games on the spin in a short time, but fitness coaches should hopefully know more about that than us!

    v Brentford (H) Match Thread

    Dunno bout you but I’m going for a good booing sesh, been doing some practice today to make sure I’m heard at half time. I’ll make sure to show my disgust by leaving 60 mins in and blaming Keogh for everything. Might even take my seat home with me

    Daddy Frankie!

    Should’ve been out giving away that useless tom Lawrence more like!

    v Brentford (H) Match Thread

    I’d make more changes than perhaps you’d think, not because of poor performances really but I think that game will have taken a lot out of certain players. I’d go with: Carson Bogle Keogh Tomori Forsyth Huddlestone Bryson Mount Wilson Nugent Waghorn Nothing wrong with Johnson on Tuesday but can’t help but feel we need more control in this game, we know that Brentford are a possession based team so we need to counter that ourselves. Nugent was too effective to leave out of this imo tho I’d take him off after 60 mins regardless, josefzoon wasn’t really on it so I’d switch him out and it looked to me that Bennett took a bit of a knock so a rest here and come off the bench might be better for him, Waghorn will suit this game as well as he’ll drop in to support the midfield.

    Mason Bennett

    Entirely different imo, Russell ran around like a headless chicken without actually having much quality on the ball, whereas Bennett has fewer touches but has more quality.
