Big Sam's teams are always physical and athletic and I'm never sure that we can handle mixing it up with sides like that. That said we got a point against Stoke the other week and could easily have taken all three - whereas we were outplayed for big chunks of our weekend game against Fulham. So what do I know? Usually the LC or whatever its called now is a chance to play some fringe players but the Forest game away suggested that maybe Bobby is going to take the cups a bit more seriously. The fans would certainly appreciate a decent cup run. So I hope that we're able to go for something like a full strength side. Something like this would suit me - assuming all injuries have passed - Habsi Ramis Caldwell Alcaraz Boyce McArthur Fyvie Figueroa Miyachi Di Santo Boselli I'd like to see Fyvie getting a run out just because Watson and Gomez (I know Gomez plays further forward but he's awful wherever he plays) look just bloody awful and if we're going to have some competition for those central midfield positions I'd rather our young Jock was getting a chance. Plus if we can play the three heavies in the centre of defence they'll give the young lad a bit of protection as well as getting us a bit better equipped to deal with the Hammers undoubted aerial assualts. I'm assuming that Sam hasn't change his MO? LC impossible to predict, they might put out some second eleven and who know whether they would roll over or batter us.
