    I hope to see the team bounce back. Big character needed.

    Nah, they'll be involved IMO, think it's just to sharpen them up for Monday. AMN is playing LB tonight so he'll likely be backing up Saka. For more hilarity, Zech Medley is playing LW tonight :lol:. Nelson is on the bench and will probably replace AMN to move up to LW.

    Is it finally time to play the kids Mikel? Where the hell has Rob Holding been all this time anyway?


    AMN Sokratis Mari Tierney

    Willock Torreira Guendouzi

    Nelson Martinelli Saka

    He did not look very good though. I wouldn't say he's ready to play on Monday at all. Mari looked alright. I'd put Harry Clarke in there though, he looked better than both of them.

    Nelson and AMN were quite sharp when they were on the pitch though.

    Every time I see Steve McManaman mentioned I start wishing this on him :

    Ideally our boys finish the routine win against Olympiacos and most of them get a good break in this game.

    But like with car crash sometimes the best medicine is to start driving again right away and I think there is good chance many of them will play so they can pick up the spirit.

    ...a hattrick from Henry from back in 2005.

    ...beautiful bit of control from Paddy from the same game...straight from their keeper's clearance, kills the ball perfectly on the chest and then effortlessly flicks it over two players...an Arsenal central midfielder who could dribble, take me back!

    Strongest team maybe with 1 or 2 getting a rest.

    Theres players who want to leave who we need to make the most of now in every game to the end of the season.

    Also these players have earned the right to only play basically once a week now until the end of the season thanks to their terrible performance on Thursday so tiredness wont be a factor going forward.

    The best way to forget about the last match is the next match and go all out to beat Portsmouth 5/6/7-0. Get confidence up and be going into the west ham game thinking the same.

    Why people not bothered about this? It's last chance to win trophy this season and for a season what it has been disaster winning a trophy would be positive end.
