      NB: Team no longer available

      I would rest Mac Allister and Szobozslai in midfield. If needed only I would use them. I would rest Salah and Darwin and VVD. I would rotate Robertson too.

      A mixture of young and experience just to advance.

      Kelleher Bradley Quansah Nallo Kostas Endo Szobo Clark Salah Danns Gakpo

      Mcconnell and Gordon for Szobo and Salah at HT.

      Get out with a comfortable 1-0 playing at 50-60%, keep the momentum going.

      Fringe players with a 4/5 seniors onboard to start with heavyweight back up on the bench if needed. They need 4 unanswered goals to get to extra time....they showed they have enough about them to score 4 ( You could argue they should have scored 4 last week!)....
      ..too light a team would be inviting trouble. IMO

      Frankly, I'd play U21 + Adrian + Salah + Szobo, maybe Bajcetic if he's fit, so anyone who needs match practice and then bring guys like Nunez or Diaz for the last 20 min.

      We got this already it has to be said, might be up to 7 changes for this, anyone’s guess obviously who starts so fwiw….here’s mine……

                                  …Adrian
                 Bradley Quansah  Gomez(c) Kostas
                                  McConnell
                  Szlobos.                    Koumas
                  Gordon.   Danns   Musialowski

      Bench ; Kelleher, Robbo, Endo, Macca, Gakpo, Nunez, Elliot, Salah, Diaz


      Give the bairns a run out, see what their made of, great experience for them and will have no fear, ably backed by a strong bench this is no more than a training excercise, if it gets sticky just send in some big guns to see it thru !!


      2-0 Young Reds

      We don't wanna go too weak. Don't forget the chances they created but didn't finish. And their keeper didn't do himself justice on the night either.
      I'm not saying they're gonna turn it around. Just don't give them an opportunity to get a foothold in the game. Always go strong enough to win it first.
      If we are 2 up at half time, then rest the players who need it.

      A lot of talk of rhythm from Jürgen recently so can see some of the returning players getting a start.

      Kelleher; Bradley, Gomez, Quansah, Tsimikas; Endo, Clark, Szobo; Salah, Gakpo, Koumas.

      Wasn't sure if Danns was fit?

      I mean it's dead as a dodo, but their a decent crew. Wasn't really a 5-1 scoreline. Kelleher made some great saves, when it was close, so they might want to prove something, show that they can play.

      I know they can, and so does the Boss, and he's not going to take it for granted. Not going to go 100% full strength, but he won't be throwing a vastly inexperienced team out there. Some of the usual suspects will be on the bench, namely Diaz and Nunez.

      One or two others but it'll be a competitive line up. 3ish...nil.

      Don't see any point in risking the main guys unless we go 2 or 3 down.

      A do with Alonso could well be on the cards. A semi final for us at the least.I would say the same for Leverkusen. Still a few decent teams in it. Roma, West Ham and our old foes AC Milan. Few others. Should warm up a bit once we get SP out of the way.

      I would like to see a few seniors players, in the starting lineup. Sparta Prague not a bad side, despite the scoreline, otherwise a win for the Reds by a couple of goals.

      Will just be a case of managing the game, putting  enough quality out there to do the job, absolutely avoiding injuries and disciplinary issues. I would expect a few senior guys out there to guide the young ones and keep rhythm even if it's only 20-30 minutes here or there.

      They could have scored 3 in the first half first leg. They've got nothing to lose being 4 goals down, so I expect them to come out blazing. They done us for pace, and will do again. If they've got their shooting boots on it could be quite tough. We don't need to take this for granted as being a stroll in the park.
       Start as strong as we dare. Get two goals or so up, then make changes if necessary.
      Clearly not full strength, but don't over do the kids. Put too much expectation on them, and it goes pear shaped, it won't do their confidence any good.

      Has he actually played a game since the Community Shield match in 2022?
      I know we are 4 goals to the good but it just seems a daft idea!
      Why would we not stick with Kelleher (unless he's another one injured - is he?)

      Feel like we will strong lineup first half and if things are going well then sub some players at halftime. Do think Salah and Dom need some minutes so I would not be surprised to see them start and things go well take them off at halftime. Something like this we might see.

      Bradley-Quansah----Gomez-----Tsimikas

      The tie won't be decided by what keeper plays tonight. Kelleher will almost definitely start...why wouldn't he...they don't get tired like outfield players...and the chance of injury is staggering low.
      Even if Adrian was to play...do you suspect he's forgotten how to keep goal?...He an experienced keeper who trains every day.

      It wasn't me who suggested that Adrian would start tonight - that was done by others on the thread!
      And no I don't think he has forgotten how to keep goal and I know he is experienced but he hasn't started a match for eons and so I don't want him between the sticks tonight!

      It wasn't me who suggested that Adrian would start tonight - that was done by others on the thread!
      And no I don't think he has forgotten how to keep goal and I know he is experienced but he hasn't started a match for eons and so I don't want him between the sticks tonight!
      Don't worry about it everything is going to be just fine!...As I say your preferred keeper Kelleher will be in goal anyway!

      Have a good evening mate, hope you enjoy the game.

      Play the kids plus about 3 seniors - Gakpo, Kostas, Gomez. Maybe give Endo n Mac a half each. Mo to come on.

      Looks like Adrian getting a start which feels appropriate

      I don’t see the problem, which some apparently do with Adrian starting, I don’t think he’ll let us down, which as you say just seems appropriate!

      Liverpool v anyone else please. Rangers fans in Dublin would be a security nightmare.

      Rangers fans anywhere that they are in a Euro final is a security risk just ask the folk in Barcelona and Manchester.

      That uefa cup final in Manchester in 2008 was a disgrace.
