    We might have the players to keep the ball if they were ever given the chance to do it over a period of a couple of games.. They might just surprise everyone...

    I'd have played our best player and then taken him off if it was going well.

    Not rely on him to save it if it was going to shit.

    4-4-2. I think part of the problem is the defenders get complacent with holding men in front. But I fancy three of those midfield four to make themselves available for the pass, from a flattish middle.

    Doesn't really matter who you play if they have made their minds up that they cant be bothered.

    4 defenders around the guy with the ball for their 1st goal last night. Not a single one even attempted to but a block in.

    I don't know if the people who have posted squads on this thread are the same people who are complaining about Mancienne in midfield, but I notice that several people have put Lichaj at left back and either Riera or Mancienne at right back. This isn't an attack on anyone's suggestions, but it's worth noting that people on this thread are doing the same "square peg in a round hole" that Dougie gets complaints about.

    I think the reason being we have no other LB , Also Lichaj plays well at LB and Mance or Reira can cover RB.

    Oh I realise the reason for it alright. The fact is that the reason why Dougie is picking the teams that he is, has an awful lot to do with how little cover he has in certain positions. It's made worse by the failure of the admins to get Pinillos' International clearance, and the injuries to Tesche, Osborn, and Gardner, who I believe Dougie has publicly stated he wants to bring back.

    I understand why he plays Mancienne at DM, as he played there for Chelsea youth, England U21s, and Wolves in the Premier League. It clearly isn't working, but since we only have 2 fit central midfield players (Lansbury and Vaughan), one of whom has displayed less fitness levels than most of the fans, he's a bit hamstrung.

    Don't think he did a lot wrong lineup wise. Lichaj hasn't started well and that left side of defence with Wilson and Fox is horrific.

    Who ever he picks he should just tell them to look for a player in a red shirt no more than 20 feet away and if hes in space, pass him the ball..... Then move into space incase he needs to give it you back. Its really not that hard.

    Fine. Iacoviti on at LB and bench one of Mance or Lichaj.

    I'd have got them all to wear Antonio masks.

    Including Antonio. Just for fun.

    It's only the tournament we've had the most success in in our history. It's only the tournament we're one of the most successful clubs in the country in.

    The moment you take a ''it's only a...'' mentality is the moment you lose. Winners fight for every single game, every single point, every single goal. Nothing less.

    Can anyone imagine Mr. Clough showing such disdain for the League Cup?

    I can't.
