    Updated team based on yesterday's team:

    Masina Cathcart Kabasele Ngakia
    Etebo Tufan Louza
    Cucho Fletcher Baah (We'll probably see Sema though on the left and no Baah)

    Considering what we were putting out previously (one of the goalscorers, Kaylen Hinds, now on the bench for NLS side Welling), we've got a good chance of some progress in the cup without jeopardising the first team.

    Looking forward to Tuesday. Also a good opportunity to get a pie and a pint.

    Will Pedro be fit for this?
  6. Must win game. Can’t afford to lose this one if we want to win the cup.

    These Carabao Cup games are quite useful. Not used to having them, so it's good to use them in a positive way.

    It's a very handy match to give Tufan his debut. Louza needs to get game time too. Fletcher will be given minutes, and I hope we get to see Pedro.

    So my team, providing everyone is available, would be:-

    Ngakia, Kabs, Sierralta, Masina
    Tufan, Louza, Gosling/Etebo
    Pedro, Fletcher, Cucho

    I agree with that lineup if JP & Tufan are fit enough, although I expect Sema will start, either in the front 3 or midfield. He might play Cathcart if Sierralta or Kabs are earmarked for the Toon game (I'd like to think this is the case).

    A good line up for a B team.

    My guess is that Tufan will still not be ready to start, but maybe a sub.

    Fletcher, IMO, is just squad no.25, and employed as an "English" player
    and very, very unlikely to get any Premier division minutes.

  11. Disappointing if he’s still not fit enough to start. We’ve signed a tubby waster haven’t we ?

    One in, one out. We're like an exclusive nightclub.

    I'm actually very excited to see Tufan play for us, but I won't be there on Tuesday as I'm working so it's of no consequence whatsoever.

    As they're in a proper league, they had a midweek game last week and have another one next week. I think they changed every player last round so would expect the same. Watford Reserves vs Stoke Reserves it is.

    Crap player who always scores against us klaxon... Tom Ince now plays for them.

    Forgot about JP, if fit, I'd have him ahead of Baah (sorry Kwadwo!)

    Booked annual leave according to Leventhal. Nothing remotely out of the ordinary.

    While I am a bit disappointed we won't see him, I don't suppose we massively objected to Etebo's ineligibility!

    Genuinely am disappointed to hear that JP probably won't play, would have been a good game to get back up to speed in since you'd think it might be difficult for him to get into the league team

    Xisco confirms rather sensibly that Tufan will play, will be an important player for us I'm sure, and a nice little ploy to drive up the social media coverage! ;)

    GK selection will be interesting. If Foster is #1 again then will DB play tomorrow, destroying his ego-saving ‘injured’ narrative? Or will Elliot get a chance?

    Ngakia and Masina should start full-back. Louza and Tufan as 2 of the midfield 3. Disappointing there’ll be no JP but I’d like to see what Baah has.

    Are you suggesting he has got to where he is, without giving 100%?

    Xisco said in the aftermath of the game that Bachmann was dropped. Does seem there was an injury as he had something on his leg, but it begs the question why he was on the bench

    Encouraging words about Ozan and what kind of player he is/what he can offer us...

  30. 100% maybe but I’d expect more from an experienced international, at least 110%. If he can give 110% of the 90.9% I’m sure he’s capable of, that would mean he was delivering 100%, the bare minimum I’d consider acceptable.
    Not a hard worker though.
    Hope that helps?

    I think he’s given 100% about 32% of the time. He’s given over 80% 36% of the time, less than 50% 27% of the time and 5% of the time he’s given eff all percent squared.

    Roughly 85% of these stats are only 40% true if that helps and the other 15% are completely made up.

    Why do footballers' wear these "training bra" things? Is it to endorse the sponsorship, or do they wear them for protection of sensitive areas?

    To measure their fitness and general condition in games and training .

    Even cricketers have them !

    On rugby players you can see where it does up as they bend over in the scrum.

    They have sensors/trackers in them to feed data back to the fitness teams for monitoring.
