The underachievers have been warned.  Get to work, or get kicked to the curb.  Win or lose, if we don't see a 100% performance from all the players chose to play, I think we'll see some changes going on.

Not sure this is the game for last chances, reckon its more a game for first chances. Want people in there who have been consistent and we know will work hard. Shelvey and Spearing have real chances to grab 1st team place here. They'll want it, they'll fight. They wont stop

Out of favour Kuyt the same up top

I really hope Spearing is okay for this, he could just be the key to us scoring a couple of goals and staying strong at the back. Never thought I'd say that a few years ago.

Think we'll see this

GK - Reina

RB - Glen
CB - Skrtel
CB - Carra
LB - Enrique

DM - Agger
RCM - Henderson
LCM - Gerrard

LW -  Maxi
CF - Kuyt
RW - Downing

Keep Bellamy fresh for United, bring him on late vs City if we need him.
If spearing is fit, put him in for Agger in DM and take our Carra for Agger at CB.

City could be without both Balotelli and Lescott.  Think Balotelli will surely get banned for his stamp but Lescott could be as well for his forearm smash in that game today.

Based on the way we finished the game at City and the feckless display at Bolton, my best guess is that we'll buy the 10 fattest guys we can find and then use them to completely plug up the goal (2 rows x 5 columns of fat guys).  Thus, my predicted team is (imagine you're looking straight at the goal):

One of those difficult decisions for Kenny eh?  Play some of the fringe players and lose, creates more pressure.  Play the usual suspects and lose, creates more pressure.  Win and it doesn't matter who is picked, we're going to Wembley.  Almost as important as how the team reacts, is who Kenny will pick to go out there and get the job done.  I have a feeling he's as serious as a heart attack after Bolton.

problem is trying to stack the fat guys on top of other fat guys!! they will crumble by the weight! so I suggest 5 fat guys on the bottom row and 5 flashy guys who can jump around if needed and block out shots with their bodies without the use of their hands!! Reina can play the sole Keeper who will have pops at their goal with the long punts!

I say we play 10 extremely extremely small men and hide them in various positions around the pitch. 4 Corner flags, 4 posts and 2 of Reina's legs, where the most agile of the little men will have to run back and forth at different angles attempting to hide themselves.

City will then assume the match has been postponed and simply wait past the 90 minutes or forfeit players inadvertently by leaving the pitch.

If they play Barry, his hawk like vision may prove a threat, in which case the only reliable course of action is to sacrifice the said little men by forcing fouls. Namely, positioning themselves between the Manchester City players shoes and trying to fit between the studs and/or blades. Some casualties may be incurred but I believe Wembley justifies the loss.

Didn't Stoke show everyone Kuyt can't play alone up top?

I'd go
Reina
Kelly Skrtel Agger Enrique
Henderson Spearing
Johnson Gerrard Downing
Carroll

if Spearing still can't play I'd either put Carra or Fabio there, or even Kuyt.

What I fear more is that we will scrape through Manchester City and get to the finals and then get hammered by championship team coz lack of effort like bolton game. City to win at Anfield 2.6to 1 looks really good bet though, while Scums 2.7 to 1 looks good also. Even though we are 1.5 to 1 to win the damn thing ccup.

but we dont need to attack. that is why kuyt will be effective then Carroll, he will defend from the front and we will have 8 others behind the goal just like second half at city. no need for Gerrard as well.  Reina,  Kelly, Johnson, Carra, Coates, Skrtel, Agger, Aurelio, Enrique, Spearing, Kuyt.

lol if you're serious then that is where we disagree. I think if we try to defend for 90 minutes we will lose. what happens if they sneak a goal in? then we're completely fucked as we have no way to get back in the game. we need to look for a 2nd goal before we lock it down.

Both incidents should be looked at, but it's unlikely they'll miss our games if they are banned as City will be given time to consider appealing, no?

Get Gerrard working off Carroll Ala how Nolan did for the toon. Gerrard is a complete waste in midifeld plus he is not that good there. Play Henderson and Spearing behind, and tell Adam to sort himself out or look for another club.

Decent shout that, he’s normally good at picking up/reading flicks and knock downs. He worked pretty well with Crouch. The only worry is we need a very solid midfield base to get the best out of Gerrard higher up otherwise he drops deep and goes looking to make things happen. Really hope Jay is back for this one but even if he is, will he also be able to play 2.5 days later against United?

Going to take some juggling to get the best out of us for both games.

when ever they get near the ball just boo their every touch and make sure we never give them a split second on the ball. we might not have lucas or suarez but they wont have kompany at the back which is a big big loss for them. can remember people telling me we would bottle it against real madrid with a similar headstart

i knew we would attack madrid but i was shocked just how good we were. theyll leave gaps at the back and we can exploit them.

That was the opening day of the season and we played them the following week. So he was suspended for the next available game although obviously there was a full week between them.

was thinking the same thing. maybe later on today or tomorrow well hear. the appeal for kompanys red was dealt with quickly enough. its not a major issue really. i havent seen this alleged forearm smash by lescott. Balotelli should be suspended. the referee doesnt seem to have taken action. i dont know whether his match report could influence anything. if he decided to take no action then balotelli will probably get away with it

even still they can just play aguero and dzeko, id rather it was one of them missing

Yeah, he has come on really well. This game is so suited to him.

However, I did see the idea of having Dan Agger in midfield if Jay is not available. Good idea imho. Also would give us the experience of Carra. Nobody better than Carra when backs are agaisnt the wall.
