So there you have it;even though he was on the sauce and maybe slightly past his best when with us, i salute
Paul Merson as a pundit now for basically saying what every manager in the premiership has known since about the third game, double or triple up on jack, and hey presto, don't worry about leaving another player free, their not going to hurt you, when I heard that I was fuming for a split second and thinking Merso was just looking to be controversial, but in a split second my heart sank and I knew he was on the button;he then went on to talk about deano's signing of baston and how if he can't do it at Swansea what makes deano, think all of a sudden it's going to be like in a Walt Disney movie and baston channels all the greatest strikers' powers and becomes the bestest striker in the galaxy, and again I couldn't disagree with what he said, and finally the most obvious one, we play far too open and are there for the taking, so the talking heads are saying that up to 5 of the current first team could be axed for the final, and in a weird way I wouldn't be surprised if secretly they have a sigh of relief, I know it's not professional but if it was me I wouldn't want to be remembered as part of a team that has a more than 50% chance of loosing BIG, and also if deano does axe 5,and brings in squad or youth team players, nervousness mixed with the potential confidence draining disappointment of likely loosing is not what I'd want with a relegation battle raging around us, so even though there's a small part of me that feels sorry for deano, the rest of me thinks you reap what you sow, and bearing in mind our position in the table;I'd have sacrificed the cup to concentrate on premier league status; and maybe had the crazy notion of maybe taking a stab at finding a system of playing that suits the players abilities and CAPABILITES, and not be so blinkered as to have some obsessional belief that after 26 games of it not working, any day soon it will magically happen so not to worry boys and girls-thats called being deluded, but hey, if we all believe that we can win, then it can happen right?

82, everyone with an ounce of football nouse can see what Merse is saying, except Smith. When teams double or treble mark a threat most clever managers then use this to an advantage as it frees up others and should create more space, that's the theory unless you are Aston Villa, this is down to basic coaching, which we are completely devoid of.

It doesn’t say much for the rest of our Midfielders does it, cue John McGinn, his return can’t come quick enough.

82 you are highlighting another reason why we should not play the youth players, "Nervousness".
Young players need to be exposed to tense situations at some point, if you keep waiting, they will want out and leave or get snapped up by the so called big boys.
You have said yourself you would sacrifice the cup, and concentrate on the league, well we have the chance to do that on Sunday.
Play a mixed up side.

Experience and youth has more often than not been a successful blend.
I don’t think they’ll be nervous because expectations won’t be that high and if they do well against a team of Man City’s quality they will have the confidence to carry that through against weaker opposition.

I'd throw the kids in our players haven't been good enough simple apart from jck, mggin, Heaton, Reina, I'd play mungo bridge at RB, vasselev at left wing, barry at right wing, with sammata, archer upront, we have nothing too loose in cup final because let's be real is anyone expecting us too win,? We haven't got a chance city will carve us open, deano won't change his tactics he's too stubborn to see his methods are clearly not working, we shouldn't playing out from the back also we should be playing more longer balls quicker, and get more crossers in to the box, we are living in dangerous grounds now, I still think we have time too stay up only if we change manager thou but it doesn't look like that will happen, so we might aswell stick with him if we go down and get hit with ffp because he knows how to get out of the league.
