Anyone expecting much of a run this season? We're surprisingly favourites in our game with Swansea, even though we're expecting to play a much rotated team. Sad as I love the FA Cup, but I'd rather all of our focus go on the league this year.

Norris
Bennett - Hause - Miranda
Marshall -------------------- Vinagre
Gibbs-White - N'Diaye
Costa - Enobakhare
Mir
Wolves 1-2 Swansea (N'Diaye)

Already beaten watford at vicarage road this year in the league cup. But if we are to fulfil our aspirations on winning the league cup, and FA cup double.. we will just have to beat them again!

Not expecting us to get too far - we’ve got Notts County at home so a decent chance of getting to the next round.

We’re using the game to give starts to Macleod and Judge, will be great to see Judge back on the pitch after nearly 2 years out injured. Marcondes will also get his debut so plenty for us to be excited about.

We really should be Fielding our strongest side as other than getting dragged into a relegation battle our season is over.
Sadly I can easily see us losing at Carlisle.

Will be plenty of changes , maybe a full 11 although im not even sure we have a different full 11 to do its something I really don't agree with at all but the match next Friday ain't just any other match and that's the only one that matters at the minute.

Blackman
Ccv
Jake Wright
Dan lafferty
Heneghan
Thomas
Carruthers
Sharp
Laovery

Think those 9 will all play , no idea who else in midfield unless it's a couple of youngsters either way I don't think we will win with that sort of team.

Think we will only end up resting 5 or 6.

Hugill needs one but Moult isn't training fully yet so I don't think we have any choice but to play him. I don't think Bodin is cup-tied.

At a guess:

Rudd
Woods, Huntington, Davies, O'Connor
Gallagher, Welsh
Bodin, Browne, Horgan
Hugill​

We'll be making at least seven or eight changes from the team that got battered at Villa, maybe even a complete second XI if we can get away with it. An FA Cup run is the last thing we need, but I still can't bring myself to hope that we lose. It would mean three straight losses which will almost certainly become four at Man City... and as we saw last year, losing runs can spiral out of control with our lot.

We'll get tonked tneet.
Martin Samuel was complaining that your game should have been on TV ahead of Brighton v Palace but wasn't because people had moaned so much that Man U always got picked (true they did!)

Think he was expecting you to field a fully strength side against an under par Man U team but guess it will be your reserves as well?

Rowett has said he'll make a few changes, but nothing drastic.

Feeling confident for our game against Hull tomorrow, as long as Mowbray fields a strong team I think we'll go through.

How are we behind shit like Derby, they can't even beat Man Utd.

Still hope we win tomorrow, as much as anything it will mean we won't have to play a league game the Saturday after the Man C 2nd leg. Another game for the youngsters, shame Walsh can't get a run out

2-1 up at Wycombe.

Sounds comfortable but we conceded an own goal just before half time.

Harrop scored a quality free kick, then Browne bagged. Bodin making his debut.

Surprised it wasn't more than three, haven't seen anything of the game but the lads out there must've been absolutely fucked after 60 odd minutes playing against Premier League regulars.

Sounds as though there were a few promising performances, Evans and Edwards apparently.

5-1. Harrop (2), Browne (2) and Horgan.

Biggest scoreline of the round.

Another clean sheet which is good news, just 2 goals conceded in the last 4 games which is on a par with our best form earlier on, keep it up blades on to the big one next week
