Remember seeing Carlton Morris in the youth cup for Norwich a good while back and he was a class above everyone else on the pitch, especially in terms of physicality. Surprised that he's nearly 24 and yet to really pull up any trees.
Has all the attributes you want from a striker, if he does...
So we can go as far in the competition as possible, I don't particularly give a shite who we play.
I'd rather get to the semis beating L2 sides, than get a payday against a top 4 side and go out in Rd 3.
Think there were about 1,000 left as of a couple of days ago.
With the way City fans are talking they're expecting more of a youth team than a 2nd string. I'm doubtful though, Pep doesn't seem to take anything for granted.
Personally I hope we're playing eleven teenagers and Aguero & Silva...
City fans seem to think they'll be playing the youth against us, especially in defence, i'd piss myself if all these bell ends that only come on games against the big clubs get to watch us beat an academy side.
That said, i'm sure the likes of Jesus, Mahrez & Foden will get a run out, who will...
Birmingham away, can't be any worse than last year, wouldn't be unhappy with a point.
Pearo should be back, i'd put Gallagher back in too so he can pick out Barkhuizen on the counter, don't think he had much to work with against Brentford.
Fisher, Bauer, Davies, Rafferty
Nah, he filled in on Saturday as Pearson was out with a virus. His only other two starts this season were in the cup, our central midfield is probably our strongest area in fairness to him.
Did himself no favours last season with a couple of reckless red cards.
The transitions in midfield are much quicker in the Championship to be fair, must be difficult for box-to-box players to step up, in order to do it in the second tier and still influence games you generally have to be very, very good.
Ryan Ledson has had similar problems for us but he's young...
I actually thought you'd do a Burnley, keep a core group of players together and add three or four quality players. Suppose all it takes is one dodgy managerial appointment and it's hard to put back on track.
