LRRR i like the look of your team. the only worry i have if we get a injury to a defender then we will be struggling going forward. 

We will be struggling going backward if we lose another defender.

This is not a personal attack Hampshire but where has this phrase ‘ going forward ‘ come from ?

It sounds like management jargon.

What’s wrong with ‘ in the future’ or ‘ could be ... struggling ‘ ?

That bugs me as well Major, so does the use of "decade or 2 decades or whatever", what's wrong with 10 or 20yrs ffs.

Towler - I have seen this young mans' name mentioned a few times. has anyone seen him play if so is he ready to play for example against Aston Villa on thurs evening. 

I have invented a rumour that he’s going out on loan to Burnham United, just a Towler on the sea.

Mawson is doing the press conference so is clearly playing. My updated team is:

 

O'Leary 

Vyner Moore Mawson

Sessegnon Nagy Massengo Eliasson

Palmer

Semenyo Diedhiou 

I think this what I'd like to see. Maybe only change I'd make is Bakinson for Nagy. Would allow Massengo to be slightly more offensive. Harsh on Nagy perhaps and obviously he needs minutes to get match fit so wouldn't begrudge him playing.

I agree the 3 CBs need as much time playing as a group as possible so would keep it like that.

I’ve seen the player doing the presser not get selected in the past, but I don’t think that’s the case this time.

We'll just have to play 1 or 2 out of position. Just can't afford to lose any of those 3. The cup isn't the priority.

The only one who I could see dropping back into the 3 would be Bakinson but he is arguably just as important at the moment and would also be due a rest. I think we will go with the Maswon, Moore and Vyner combo for Thursday and Sunday and if we progress then hopeully Kalas or Dasilva could be back for the 4th round or maybe some of the midfielderswhich may allow Rowe to drop into defence temporarily.

Brunt.

we'll rest a few as well as play one or two to get them into the shop window. Plus after Grealish and Mings there's no stand-out captain so wouldn't be surprised if one or both start. But

                      Nyland (but prefer Steer)

Elmohamady   Hause   Mings   Taylor  

      Lansbury   Ramsey   Hourihane 

      Traore   Davis El Ghazi

 

subs:

Steer (Martinez for pens)

Konsa

Targett

Grealish

McGinn

Jota

Watkins

O’Leary

Vyner Moore Mawson

Sessegnon Nagy Brunt Palmer Eliasson

Semenyo Diedhiou

 

Bentley Rowe Towler Bakinson Massengo Wells Martin

This was the team in the latest Failand Uncut video training, so think this is the likeliest line up!

I'll answer my own question...

"The guys who played in the last round against Northampton Town played really well so will get another opportunity"

The team that started was;

..............................O'Leary

..................Vyner Kalas Mawson

...... Sessegnon Bakinson Palmer Nagy Eliasson 

.....................Semenyo, Martin

Kalas is out and will he play Martin and Bakinson ?

Maybe - looks strong enough.

I think the main question for me is do we play Bakinson or not. He's been amazing but surely needs some recovery time. I wouldn't be surprised to see Nagy/Brunt paired with HNM in the middle; which I think would be great for Massengo; give him a little more freedom.

Big opportunity for Kasey tonight.

Its great seeing him play so well last week. But to do it against Villa will be far more impressive and may give Holden something to think about with who to start in league games.

Forgetting the league for a mo’, gonna be an interesting team selection.

I think there are some “sure things”, (at least in our heads 😀) like Sessegnon for Hunt, Diedhiou and Semenyo for Martin and Wells, but for me Massengo and Nagy got rested but still travelled on Sunday, suggesting they will play.  That probably means Brunt won’t start in DM.  If Holden wants to start him to get minutes then a compromise is needed elsewhere.  Either he leaves out Nagy or Massengo, or someone like Eliasson at LWB.

Probably as tough a team choice as a league game.  Good problems, and I’m looking forward to seeing the starting eleven later.

I like that 👍

I think Eliasson, Palmer and Diedhiou will also have a question mark hovering over their heads until the window closes or contracts signed. Any gameweek could be the one where they disappear ahead of a transfer.
