Given the views and proximity to the dugout I was thinking of getting a ticket near the half way line in the Halfords for this one.

Always feel a tad claustrophobic and hemmed in there though so the (currently) wide open spaces of the Smethwick it is.

Its quite a hazardous area as well, flasks / blankets / sandwich bags all sorts of paraphenalia, you'll be a lot safer in the Smethwick mate !

I know chap, my wife used to have a season ticket in the Halfords.

She told me all about the 'Werther's Original Wars' and feels much better now she's moved to the Smeth'.

Smoke bombs and flying coins she can handle, but those boilies are a bugger.

Well in advance I know but planning ahead I think we'll see a number of changes for this game. I'm sure Holgate will be given his debut. If Burke hasn't gone on loan by then I can see him lining up up front. Harper may get a start as we rest our first eleven.

Anyone agree or do you think we'll play a full strength team?

You have had a bit too much to drink mate - imo, he will play his strongest side whatever that may be. Will he play Holgate without any drills?

Play the weakest team possible, hopefully we go out. Can't afford another fixture pile-up with captain clueless' shocking attempts at 'rotation'.

I will never be able to get my head round so called fans wanting the Albion to ever lose! I hope we smash them and then go on a good cup run and I don't get people who don't want that?

Need to win this to give us some confidence and momentum pre Norwich game. Also some of our youth players need game time.

Don't think your team is far off... a lot of "first teamers" will be rested.

                      Myhill
Holgate adribayo Bartley Townsend
            Morrison Barry Harper
              Sako HRK Rodriguez

That's what I think we will do.
Would like to see sam field get a game. I want to see Harper play to see if he offers any more in midfield then some of the old boys

I think we need to be looking to rest a few of the first team players for this one, we're only using the same 14/15 faces so it's always good to try and rest a few of these.

I would go with something like:

Myhill

Mears
Holgate (if the plan is to play Holgate at RB, then slot him there replacing Mears and pop Tosin in CB)
Bartley
Townsend

Field (Hoolahan if Field isn't fit/trusted)
Brunt
Harper

Burke
HRK
Sako

I don't want to see Dawson, Hegazi, Gibbs, Barry, Morrison, Brunt, Phillips, Barnes, Gayle or Rodriguez anywhere near the squad for Saturday, they must be protected for Norwich.

Looking forward to seeing what a few of the younger squad members can do but I don't want this to be an exercise in fixture fulfillment. Hoping to see a blend of youth and experience with an eye to winning and being in the hat for the next round, as opposed to simply getting minutes into legs and putting a team out because we have to. I want to see a plan, a team selection which reflects that plan, a good team effort and good use of subs if and when required.

I dread to think what fans of other teams make of this sort of comment !  Smacks of the sort of thing our cousins neighbours in Witton would say !

There's really no need to afflict young Holgate with 'Bartley Syndrome' at this stage of his fledgling career.

Collywobbles can be highly contagious and I wouldn't want them to affect him going forward.

Bond

Mears   Holgate   Bartley   Townsend

Harper   Field

Edwards   Sako   Brunt

Burke

Doesn't really put Sako in his best position, but I'll live with it. Give Brunt a run out in the only position he can actually play.

Myhill
Holgate - Adarbioyo - Bartley - Townsend
Harper - Field
Edwards - Hoolahan - Sako
Burke

Bond, Mears, Howkins, Brunt, Rogers/Tulloch, Leko, HRK

With a view to Holgate coming straight in at RB against Norwich. Although I fully expect him to exclude as many of the young players as he can.

I don't like changes for the cup but appreciate as a Championship club with promotion aspirations, it is advisable to give some a rest after the busy Christmas period. Anyone with a knock like Hegazi and Gayle shouldn't be risked and players with histories of muscular injuries such as Gibbs and Phillips should also be given a break. I would also give Barry a rest due to age and the fact that Livermore is out for 3 games after this one.

Johnstone

Holgate
Dawson
Bartley
Brunt

Harper
Field
Morrison

Sako
Rodriguez
Barnes

Myhill, Adarabioyo, Townsend, Hoolahan, Edwards, Burke, Robson-Kanu

Debatable. From what I’ve seen this season he’s offered absolute nothing to the side - even his set pieces don’t deliver any goals anymore. Take Rotherham away, for example, we’re 4-0 up looking well balanced, on comes Brunt and almost instantly the shape of the midfield has gone because he can’t be arsed to press the ball or position himself correctly when out of possession. I would say play him against Wigan in the cup, but he’ll only wrongly reclaim the captain’s armband which will enable him to whinge at the ref and his other ten teammates for the duration of the 90 minutes.
