    That's not enough. We will be blowing £150m+ in trying to get back to the promised land.

    The real question is what were the xgoals yesterday? This is what Javi will be judged on.
    Any more than 1.5 for Coventry and he needs to go asap.

    If we stick to 4-2-3-1 I would suggest that Janmaat is a definite for Femenia. I would have Kabasele in for either of the Craigs. I would say Cathcart as I think their performances have been quite similar but Dawson offers a goal threat. I would be tempted to drop Holebas but that maybe too much at once. Quina and Chalobah were decent but I would stick with Doucs (unless injured or not fit) and Capoue. I would probably stick with Gray up front. I would love to go for Delefeou, Pereyra and Sarr as the 3 attacking midfielders but I would be concerned about the defensive side of their jobs. I would also make them interchangeable.

    I can't imagine them being given the whole end again and it would be a very strict ticketing policy. When we played them in the League Cup, 3 Counties Radio interviewed the chief of police on the morning of the game who said he was well aware of the situation that could arise and that everything was sorted, there would be no trouble!
    I'm sure there would be issues, probably in the town but anything like this is avoidable. If it's at their hovel and you want to be safe, go by coach

    Isn’t it usually drawn in the Stafford branch of Lidl at 3am on a Tuesday morning?

    Is Wilmot going to be allowed to play? I’d assume not. Which is an extra shame given cup games are all he’s playing for them at the minute.

    Bewildering initials.

    AP is Partridge?

    Wilmot cannot play so will be left in Wales when the Swans squad travel to the Vic.

    He’s only playing cup games and didn’t have to break sweat tonite - great experience for our rising starlet.

    We didn’t play 4-2-2-2 on Saturday.

    Midfield diamond.

    V clear in first half.

    Heat map?

    Surely he’s allowed to travel.

    And look his tormentors in the eye.

    Jimmy Hill?

    So if he digs in, he could be the new Billy Punton?

    I wouldn’t bother emailing Gino specially.

    With an ostentatiously velvety bag.

    To show they’re not just ghastly cheap sh1t.

    I'm a dyslexic fool. So initials come in handy.
    It would be worth the entrance fee to see Partridge smash one in from outside the box.

    Swansea it is. All of a sudden painful memories are back of our last game with them under Slither. Such a painful result.

    But this is the cup after all. Be an interesting game. Astonishingly, we are only separated by two league positions.

    He can only travel by special authorisation and has to sit at the back of the bus and stay mum all day - no fraternising with the opposition.

    Glad I’m not the only one with ‘initials blindness’. They don’t register with me at all.

    The worst is GD.

    Deulofeu or our own Going Down?

    Can change the meaning significantly.

    Another favourable draw. Shame it's not away, has anyone ever had that Joe's icecream, a local speciality? The locals queue round the block for it, the weirdos.

    As the Forum Owner looks to build the forum's brand franchise, I wonder if he is considering a game show format.

    I would see Clive as our Bill Bailey & Moose as the stinging Jeremy Hardy type.

    Cley could play the Willy Rushton role.

    Reids slots in nicely as Jamie Rednapp, leaving only Corden & Jack Dee to cast.

    And, of course, Samantha.

    Good point.

    Negative GD almost certainly refers to Going Down but you can't be sure.
