      Think Milner a cert and hopefully Keita and possibly shaq needs freshening and Thiago and Wijnaldum rested . Milner to skipper for me get some steel back in to this side we definately need him whilst Hendo out

      If we lose to these lot I don't know what I'll do.

      Thiago, Gini, Jones, Bobby and Mane need dropping

      Alison

      Trent
      Phillips
      Davies
      Tsimikas??

      Fabinho
      Thiago
      Keita

      Big Shaq
      Salah
      Jota

      A nice well balanced midfield and 2 actual centre backs. Robertson badly needs a rest as does Gini

      NB: Team no longer available

      I would drop Thiago, Wijnaldum and Firmino. And put Fabinho as cover to our back two.

      If we start the same boring team as the last month then we lose, if Jürgen has the ability and interest in changing things then we can win comfortably.

      I'd drop Robbo, Mane and Bobby, I'd play 2 CB's and Fab in midfield. I'd pack the midfield and have Curtis and Keita as attacking midfielders with license to join Jota and Salah up top.

      In defence I'd play Trent/Neco, Davies, Nat and Tzimikas and have them sit a bit deeper.

      In midfield Gini, Fab, Curtis and Keita.

      Ie 4-4-2

      Of course we won't though as we have a genius manager who believes we will magically improve at some point.

      It seems some you mad buggers are or have taken your eye off the ball, we are still in with a more than reasonable chance of a top four spot, so for me that is our No 1 priority, and as such I want to field as strong a side as possible albeit with I hint of a risk......


                          Alisson
            Trent Phillips Davies Robbo
                          Fabinho
                Thiago            Keita
                            Jota
              Salah                 Mane


      Yes, yet another new CB pairing that’s the risky but, but this time with the excellent Fabinho in front protecting, basically what we have is five defenders & five attackers, I don’t expect Fulham to come out and attack us too often but we have enough protection if they did, but I want them concentrating on us attacking them and trying to keep us out,

      Never mind the CL atm, we’re almost through anyway so emphasis is qualification for next season, just in case we don’t go all the way this year, anyhoo, Fulham will come full of their London pride and think they can replicate the losses we have suffered of late, they are a decent outfit under Scot Parker however the league table doesn’t lie and we SHOULD be too good for them , even in our shambolic state, this run of defeats has to end and they will, starting on Sunday.


      3-0 Champions

      Nothing wrong in  general with a bit of adversity. All part of the roller coaster of the game. This will be a tough match, Fulham was the game where I realised we weren't good enough to win the title this year.

      Anything less than a win will end our interests in the top 4. Jurgens comments this week suggest that we might need putting out of our misery where thats concerned sooner than later anyway.

      Get what your saying mate but at 2-0 up if we fu**ed that up we don’t deserve to proceed, I was less than impressed with RB first leg ,I thought we were in total control aside from the first ten, anyhoo, I can’t see them putting three past us without us scoring at least one,

       although our lads are tired they still should get ample rest between games this time of the season, I would doubt they have full blown training schedules each and every day as if it were early season, player’s will have enough in their tanks to play twice a week, three would be a struggle but two should be fine, also we don’t have the back up to drop or rest players without a drop in performance levels and we can hardly afford that right now can we ?

      No not at all but having 4 players who haven’t played in the same side before in a EPL game is dicing with death, there is no substitute for experience but you have none in your back 4, if Jürgen fielded that defence you would be the first to slate him, I’m all for trying different things but ffs we need players who know what’s expected and how to deal with it ?

      We have for some reason performed better in the CL this season as opposed to our league form, so no I can’t see us throwing a 2-0 lead away against a side who were inferior to us first leg.

      That looks like a decent starting 11 Billy.
      I don’t believe we are out of the top4 yet. Lots can happen from here on in. Should be enough for Fulham this.
      As for Leipzig. Two defensive blunders gave us two chances which were put away. We may have had one more decent chance, whereas they missed 3 sitters.
      It’s certainly not over yet. A win v Fulham would raise the confidence somewhat, but another loss, and we start v Leipzig under huge pressure.
      One other thing, if Keita is fit, drop Gini snd get him in.
      Gini is always reactive snd not proactive. He often looks like he doesn’t have a clue what to do with the ball.
      I agree ha has his good moments, but not often enough, snd as he doesn’t even want to be here, I think it’s time to bench him.

      Jota has to start !
      Put Trent in midfield coz he’s sh*t as a full back.
      Put Fabinho in midfield where he belongs just in front of Davies and Kabak.

      The current first 11 are obviously struggling with tiredness as well as form, so I would rotate heavily for this one (and then rotate back to the first 11 for Leipzig). And as well as adding physical freshness, it might change the psychological rut we've got into the last few weeks. And hopefully bring 2 or 3 players into the reckoning to be regular starters. So I'd go -

                        Alisson

      Neco   Nat    Davies     Tsimikas

             Ox    Milner  Keita

              Shaq   Origi   Jota


      Obviously it's a bit risky playing so many 2nd string guys, but the performance against Chelsea was so lacking in belief (and we've been stuck in this rut for so long now) that I think Jürgen needs to take more risks and give our back up guys a chance to change the dynamic. (And since heavy rotation makes sense anyway with only 2 days recovery from the last game, this is the perfect time to take that risk).
