Quite looking forward to tonight for some reason. I'm interested to see what our team will be.

I'm the scumbag outlaw. You're the pillar of justice. Neither of us like looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do we have a deal?

Good to see Gillespie, Barlaser and S Longstaff in.

Personally I'd have preferred 4 RBs but im happy to settle for just the 3.

Shame we only have Krafth to fill in the other CB slot. Other than that I'm happy.

Does anyone look at Gillespie on the team sheet and immediately think of the good ol' times or is just me?

Not the full back at centre back nonsense.

A very young cm there. Hope their lack of experience doesnt hurt us

Surprised Armstrong isn't starting for Blackburn. Even more surprising is that Lewis Holtby is starting for them. Still only 29, just about. He seemed to be quite highly rated not even that long ago.

That's surely the second most right backs we've started in one game?

Probably. I think we had four against Norwich a few years ago. Santon, Perch, Simpson, RTaylor as a back four? Memory is a bit foggy on that one.

I'm sure he was supposed to be a right back as his priority position? Played all across the midfield and defence though. Could argue Santon was a CDM as well <run>

Yeah that was the horror I was remembering, I'm sure it was 4-2 and we were bullied in the air...

Oh, man. No TV streams and NO radio coverage for overseas fans (BBC). Blackout game. <erk>

I think we need more RBs, for sure.

That sounds right, we had a very short back line. I think Ba was pulling trees out of his arse trying to get us into the game, did he score both?

I can't get over them wanting a tenner to stream it. As someone else mentioned, even if they halved that they'd easily get more than double the uptake.
