      Not sure the boss will be that arsed, you seen when the next round is? 😬

      Larrouci possibly, still here, played against united u23s last week
      Cant see him playing Robbo in this and asking Milner to go again at LB seems a bit much. Could do like but seems a bit arl arse

      I think the boss is arsed, but wont risk any of the superstars if he can help it.

      Not sure but I think larrouci played for u21s v tranmere in the EFL cup on tuesday.

      It'll be nice to see what the fringe, and younger players can do against more meaningful opposition than (no disrespect intended) Lincoln.

      Larouci did not play on Tuesday. I thought about him there possibly as well so Milner could play in midfield. Supposedly Yasser wouldn't sign a new contract in the close season and the club were looking to move him on. He hasn't been training with the first team unless he did so Wednesday. That game he played with the U23s was his first back from injury.

      So it's probably Milner at left back, but I'm a lot less certain of our lineup tonight than I was last week.

      Lets hope that most posters realise these games are part of the development of younger players. Neco has taken some stick, totally unjustified. He's coming along fantastically but like any player will make mistakes.

      As to the game Arteta might play a strong team so we need a strong bench.

      I liked what Pep Ljinders said yesterday about Neco, that as a young player he is "a doer" and doers will make mistakes because they are trying to make things happen on the pitch.  He also said you are only a supporter "if you support."

      I think the particulars of that can be fleshed out a little, and for me if I was on social media I would just ignore my mentions, but agree the criticism of Neco has been over the top.

      Yes I noticed that about Neco.He tries stuff as if he's playing wing back.That is encouraged here I think.We saw it with Trent when he came in. One of the reasons we went for Robbo was that although Hull were relagated Robbo still wanted to get forward to try stuff.

      The slight downside is that it occasionally can see us lose possession or get to high on the flanks giving teams the chance to exploit the space in behind. But it's a risk reward strategy in a sense but high support from the full backs is in our DNA so it will carry on being part of our game plan. Neco is an exciting prospect and he should not be put off from playing his game by the odd error.

      Neco no will already have learnt from his experience against Aubameyang, and have had a bit of coaching on it, as well as a huge hug, and encouragement to keep on doing what you’re doing, just remember to iron out the little blips  as you go along.

      He’ll get better, or he’ll hide.
      Think he’ll do the former myself. 😊

      Probably wrong of me to say this, but I'd really prefer to concentrate on the league and champions league

      To be blunt, really don't give a sh*t about this cup.

      Squad is better now, I think we can cope with giving this a go. Unlike FA Cup whose later stages screw us for the CL.

      Quarter finals of this are in the week run up to Christmas. Semis in new year

      Already hectic time of year. I think Klopp won't shed any tears if we go out

      Oh conflicting reports here it seems.

      I’ve heard Sebastian Coates is lining up beside Kolo Toure.

      Id say more likely to be Gomez and Koumetio though

      Well according to WAHS it’s Virgil and Rhys Williams so we’ll soon see who has the inside information.
