    It has to be Holgate at right back. He's bigger, stronger, more defensively aware and less likely to fuck up. He doesn't really provide much attacking impetus but that's the least of our problems. We are conceding far too many soft soft goals and we need to tighten up. When we have played Holgate at right back before we have looked much more solid than we do currently.

    Kenny turned inside out AGAIN. Sorry but that lad needs to learn his craft somewhere else like Baines did. We are gonna concede so many goals down his side as good players exploit his inexperience. That's not to excuse the failure of other players to break the play down earlier

    I don't know how it works here completely and "censorship" is not my primary concern. I'll be open and honest with you all. It is me that has triggered this discussion because I got agitated by a couple of downvotes on different posts by the same user. I've never had problems with any users and generally never get bothered by anything online. Previously I've made no consideration towards others personal wellbeing and am guilty of being ignorant of others feelings. But right now things aren't great for me. I'm struggling for work and am exhausted caring for my wife who is in bad health, we are only in our mid 30s and have 2 young children to look after as well. I come here just to catch a break and I just got annoyed with some stupid downvotes. I shouldn't have gotten annoyed but the truth is that I did. I guess what I'm saying is that there could be people in worse situations than me and that a function on a website that has no real value can have detrimental effects. I'll finish by saying that I'm not looking for sympathy from anyone on here or to be treated differently for any reason. I don't know a single user personally and bare no feelings at all to any of them.

    It's not water off a ducks back for everyone. You don't know what frame of mind people are in when they post.

    The daft thing is that we have one more game before an international break and, as many have said, we are a mid table team with many of our players getting a rest anyway. Pickford will likely play for England, Gylfi for Iceland, Richarlison for Brazil, Gueye is another international regular. Beyond that there aren't many more I can think of, so why rest so many? Walcott could have easily started this game AND the Leicester game, then had a rest. Morgan and Digne have lost their places in the French side. We could have put a much stronger team out from the start and brought players off early if needed.

    Again, I'll put another point forward. As much as many of you say what you see and read doesn't bother you. That doesn't mean that it doesn't bother someone else. You don't know another person's frame of mind when they come here. You might have a bad day at work, come to your favourite website and find you've got bad rep. Doesn't help anyone. It's just a function that has no positives and the potential for serious negatives. Ultimately my point being is that visiting this website should be a positive experience for all. Disagreeing with someone, even strongly should be permitted. Anyone who is abusive should be moderated appropriate. But there should be no facility to give a negative experience to users. I just think reputation voting has no value on a forum. If it went the way of the dodo then nobody would miss it.

    No, downvoting is a lazy man's way of moderating a board. Get a couple of downvote and then a post gets censored. Don't know if that's how it works here but that's how it works on a great many boards. It's also open to abuse by less well intentioned people. You scrap downvoting and it will have no effect on those people who aren't bothered by it. You keep it and it does have an effect on those bothered by it. It's unnecessary. There's a reason Facebook doesn't use a thumbs down button, as much as people ask for it. There are more negative connotations than there are positive.

    Downvoting needs to be fucked off. Worst part of a forum that, especially when it gets people censored (on other boards).

    Our problem is that we are forced to use Jonjo Kenny and Tom Davies every week and they need to be chaperoned through every game until they stop making mistakes. Kenny is good going forward but defensively he is a mess and a player like Gana is required to be on red alert for when he switches off. We don't have a striker who can get us a goal when we really need it. Tosun isn'tt going to cut it, Niasse is all huff and puff but won't blow the house down, the less said about DCL the better. Pickford Kenny (🙄), Keane, Zouma, Digne Morgan Gana, Bernard Sigurdsson Walcott, Richarlison Gana's job is to cover for Kenny when he gets forward and forgets his defensive duties. Morgan is no worse than Davies in midfield and I don't see any point in persisting with Davies when he isn'tt improving. The rest of the midfield is the most mature and experienced that we can put out. Sigurdsson to play as a false 9. Walcott and Richarlison to fall into wide positions when off the ball but surge ahead of Sigurdsson when on the attack. We have seen enough of Tosun to k ow he is not going to be enough of a goal threat. The goals are coming from Walcott and Richarlison so prioritise them in your build up play.

    The league cup hasn't got much life left in it. Struggling to find sponsors due to many clubs seeing it as a distraction. All the big clubs in European campaigns are completely disinterested in it unless they somehow manage to get their reserve team through to the later rounds. Perhaps European qualification should disqualify clubs from the tournament. But then that would make it even less attractive to sponsors. Such is the nature of the beast when football has become so commercialised

    They're gonna come out of the blocks flying. After a poor performance last weekend they will want to get an early foothold in the game. I expect it to be a dirty first half and we will need to keep our heads. We should put out a strong team in the first half to get this game won early. I would like to see Walcott and Richarlison upfront either side of Tosun. Perhaps Bernard will play and Richarlison will play as striker, but it's best that we have this game won in the first half. Once we are 2 goals up and they have capitulated we can withdraw players for the weekend
