Bloody hell only 2 yrs ago?! Totally different team/era to now. I forgot about Moireria- how many keepers have we bought  or loaned in in the last 2/3 yrs?

We could nearly field a starting XI of goalkeepers, probably missing one 

Moreira

Bunn

Johnstone

Heaton

Reina

Martinez 

Steer

Sarkic

Kalinic

Nyland

Gollini

I’d go full strength, treat it halfway between a warm up and a competitive match.

Could be a great opportunity for Watkins to get one or more goals and to boost the squad ahead of the first PL game.

I think we could mix it up and still field a strong enough team to win.

I think sky have been pretty clever in putting it on live, knowing it’s our first game of the season means people will make extra effort to watch it, plus some neutrals might keen to see how we look.

I just wish I hadn’t booked a table out for me and the missus on the assumption that it wouldn’t be on the TV oops.

 

Unlimited ribs and wings tho for £13, be rude not to!

I'd go

                                     Steer 

Cash              Konsa              Hause                Taylor 

                                   Nakamba

                    Lansbury                  Hourihane

Trezeguet                                                           El Ghazi 

                                    Samatta

I don't really like the idea of playing a weak team. We have six days between this and Sheffield, who will have played a match more. Yes some people played 90 on Sat but does that really come into it? They need games, not nine-day rests.

Would be disappointed if we don't go strong here. Seems counter-intuitive.

I think in most seasons you would stick out a second team for this one. But because we haven't played a match I'd be tempted to put out a few of the first teams but only if they haven't been away for internationals.

I'd go with:

Steer

Elmo Konsa Hause Taylor

Marv

El Ghazi Lansbury Luiz Trez

Samatta

I think the likes of Grealish, Mings, McGinn, Houruhane have been training hard and they should be up to speed for Monday next week. Would be nice to see Samatta, El Ghazi or Trez getting on the score sheet to boost some confidence.

in that case Burton haven't got a wing or a prayer. Ahem.

I'd love to see Ramsey get a start tomorrow. He looked head and shoulders above everyone in his short stint at Doncaster. He's gonna be ever further down the road now in his development. I hope we go with a mix of guys outside of contention for Sheffield United and ones we expect to start that game.

Gotta pick Lansbury surely, he looks forward to these games for a whole year.

 

Thats a big assumption.

I mean.

I'm sure he would be perfectly happy getting his pay cheque for doing nothing, licence has done for the last.....3-4 years?

Jota and henri will hopefully be nowhere near the first 11, so why play them at all?

Fred         engels         hause           taylor

                          Marv

                Connor        sjm (sub on ramsey)
