Looking forward to our first competitive match of the new season. Predicting a comfortable 3-0 victory. Taylor with a hat trick.
Yes I would agree this will be the approach. Same team as QPR game minus Cooper and Clare.They've already said that they will be putting out two separate teams for both cup games, given the game after this is the stupid trophy plus it will be then be a league game a few days after, I assume today's team will be a first team, and then a second team on Tuesday? Or will both teams be a mix? (Obviously no Clare or Cooper today, both of whom might be considered first XI players)
It looks like the first 4 rounds of this competition are all in September. So the first 4 rounds will not have any crowds, then the 5th round is 22nd/23rd of December. The 5th round has 4 games, semis 2 games then there is the final. So a total of only 7 games in whole competition will have spectators (of which 4 games are only 2 or 3 days before Christmas). So what is the point? Also to put a game on will cost money.
I normally like the idea of putting out best team for the cup games and progress as far as possible even at the expense of some league points, but this time, no, league needs to take priority.
