bit of an echo in here, is it coming from under a bridge?

We will have to make do with the FA Cup. At least Andy Carroll is bound to be injured come Wednesday.

I doubt JM would agree to that, not sure I'd agree to it myself. Do you want to win or do you want to give youth a chance? How long a chance do you give them?


You cannot argue that we hasn't given the youngsters a chance. CBJ, Fosu-Mensah, Varella, Mcnair, Lingard, Rashford have all been given good match time. Its a bright light in respect of his tenure. There are lots more that he's given a chance to, but don't think will be good enough. But in CBJ, Fosu-Mensah and Rashford we have guys who can be in the first team squad for a decade.

You can't force Jose or any manager to have a focus on youth, how would you even administer such a contract/ clause?

Yeah but that runs out on wednesday night for the replay. So I look forward to how "bad the decisions went against your lot posts" blah blah.

I don't think my expectations have been lower for quite some time going into a cup match. We should get battered but...you never know!

...season could realistically end for us tonight

West Ham are no mugs, that's for sure. Should be a good game. Just watch out for Carroll.

I'm hoping he won't make it through the warm up.

Fosu-Mensa or however you spell it has been hung out to dry a bit down the right. He's doing well, but I think he needs more protection.

Agreed. Close between him and Rashford for MotM in my book.
