I suppose on the brightside at least Pauno has no selection dilemmas apart from at keeper. If you are fit you are in the 11!

With Moore and Dann both fit, the big question is what do you do with Laurent.

Play him alongside Drinkwater and push TDB up the pitch.

Southwood
Yids if fit
Moore
Dann
Baba
Drinkwater
Laurent
Dele Bashiru
Swift
Ejaria
Puscas

Hopefully have Rino on the bench with Rafael being the only other senior player fit.

We're basically down the a first XI and a sub keeper, this is pretty insane.

Subs: Rafael, Holzman, Bristow, Osorio, Sackey, Camara, Clarke

Yikes.

Rino fit would make a big difference.

Absolutely spot on. Unfortunately, a few work colleagues of mine are not going on Saturday (they would normally go) because
they are saying "what is the point of paying full price to watch half a reserve team ?"

I don't agree with them, but in a way I can see their point.

Our injury list is the worst I have ever known.

It’s nonsense to say it’s half a reserve team and now is when the team need our support. Southwood is number one on merit. If Yids is fit both our first choice full backs are starting.
You could argue Moore and Dann are our first choice centre backs. Drinkwater, Laurent, Swift and Ejaria are starters. Dele Bashiru and Puscas decent back ups.

We still have a very competitive starting line up. If Rino is fit he will be excellent back up.
We seriously cannot afford any more injuries for a few games though.

If everyone was fit, Moore and Morrison and Meite and Joao and Rino would start. Excluding keeper, that is half of our team. What did i say that was nonsense ?

I doubt very much Rino would start. Ahead of who? Morrison ahead of a fit Dann??
Meite probably starts but it’s not guaranteed. Joao agreed. I have said it’s nonsense not you! It’s not aimed at you btw.
Even if I agreed with the four you mention that still leaves seven first team starters in the side.

The only "reserve" on Saturday will be Puscas. Even with a fully fit squad you could make a case for the rest of them starting.

I understand not going for a league Cup game knowing fit players are being rested but this is a league game with the best available XI, who have mostly been playing well.

Some who may have been reserves have played themselves into a position of not being.

Its a decent starting 11 certainly. Rino on the bench will help. Lack of depth and bench options is pretty scary though

Suppose the big concern, hopefully alleviated a bit by having the international break - is overloading those same players - the likes of Baba, Dann, DD aren't used to playing so regularly.

I’ll give you Meite and Joao. Don’t think there’s much to choose between Laurent and Rinomhota, or Dann and Morrison. Moore will start.

Decent case to argue that Laurent looks a pretty decent starter at centre back. Makes us much more comfortable playing the ball around at the back.

Agreed, but he's also one bad game away from "GET HIM BACK IN MIDFIELD ASAP".
