In terms of the Lincoln game, if he plays Lossl, Holgate and Baines etc then he may aswell just stick a big sign on his head saying "we don't want trophies". The only none first teamers that should play are Sidibe and Davies, that's it. If he doesn't take the cups seriously again then well he's in a very bad position.

Why can't he play Kean, Gbamin if fit and Iwobi?

26 Aug 2019 16:26:49
They are first teamers, they have came on off the bench and look like they will be starting every league game soon.

Gbamin is out for a long time.

26 Aug 2019 16:27:29
So a 2-0 defeat to a rubbish side like Villa and the manor of it should be rewarded by keeping their place and never give the rest of the squad a chance.
Apologies in advance for criticising the manager as I know for some on here its a forbidden thing.

26 Aug 2019 17:13:30
Perfect game to give starts to Iwobi and Kean for me, Swan.
Spikey, we all have the right to criticise the manager or players, it's just some people go way overboard!

26 Aug 2019 17:30:51
Thank goodness you are not our manager Swan.

26 Aug 2019 18:26:13
So you think Baines etc should start?

Because playing our second string team has won us so many cups recently.

26 Aug 2019 18:36:26
How daft is that, Marco will put out whichever Team he feels is best for each game, he has far more knowledge than any of us on here, having watched them all in training, fitness levels, attitude, etc etc etc.

{Ed025's Note - your right GB..

26 Aug 2019 18:51:08
Roberto Martinez had more knowledge than any of us, didn't make him right.

We always play a weakened side in the cups

And last time I checked we haven't won a trophy in nearly 25 years.

But football isn't about winning so it's all good.

26 Aug 2019 18:52:45
Of cause I am Ed mate, Man U lost, Spurs lost Wolves only just about drew, were they all playing rubbish sides, of cause not all the teams in the Premiership can beat anyone, that is a ridiculous statement by Swan.

26 Aug 2019 19:11:47
Sorry I thought we were talking about Marco, goodness me.

26 Aug 2019 21:05:09
To get our season up and running, this is the ideal game to get them all to jelly. GBamin is out for weeks, but the rest and I suspect Delph as well should be fit so played in my view. Won't take GB to task as to Silvas knowledge being greater than all of us, I am still waiting for that evidence.

26 Aug 2019 21:13:59
Did I say Jelly, Whoops, slip of the tongue.

26 Aug 2019 22:09:00
It is a cup game early in the season so I would expect may be 1 or 2 changes.
Possibly Kean and Iwobi. The rest should remain.

26 Aug 2019 22:21:44
So why didn't Martinez know better? He was watching them train, same as Marco is. You can strip it down to the bare minimum and say "comparison doesn't matter because they are different human beings" but they were both Everton managers.

I prefer to look at the results, we haven't won a trophy in 24 years and we always play a weakened side in the cups and I would like us to take the league cup and fa cup seriously. What's wrong with that.

26 Aug 2019 22:58:46
Well hearing your take on what we should do DFS we can be sure he knows a damn site better than you.

Personally I wouldn't play Delph or at least only from the bench with Wolves at the weekend and him only just coming back from injury. There's no need to risk in an away game against lower opposition who will no doubt give a few kicks out.

As for players off the bench coming into the side. Of course they can come into the 1st 11. They're not there to keep the seats warm and not getting paid a shed load of money to do so either.

You can criticise the manager all you want. When you do it for no reason, like when he hasn't even picked the bloody side yet and you're having a go then you come across as a complete idiot and fool. Or when you've been waiting for 14 months for him to completely fail and he doesn't, again just put yourself in that category. However, if you want to criticise for not fixing a leaky defense, which he did last season, or not sorting out us in an attacking sense which, is his task early this season, then fine.

At least this manager is trying to fix his mistakes. People like Swan and DFS here keep making the same ones over and over again.

26 Aug 2019 23:32:41
if new signings don't start what's the point of having them, and DCL must be left out.

26 Aug 2019 23:41:55
Literally didn't criticise the manager once pal. I just said IF he plays a second string squad. But don't let facts get in the way of insults mate.

27 Aug 2019 00:29:24
After our f a cup tie last season, I am sure Silva knows what to expect and will not take Lincoln lightly, expect a strong starting 11.

27 Aug 2019 07:05:13
I sorry but I've forgot who coined the phrase originally but "Calm Down, Calm Down" everyone

We're at each others throats about team selection when there's been no team announced

After last season I'm sure Silva has learned the lesson to take the cup competitions seriously as I'm sure he now understands fully the passion of the fans and our frustration at being without a trophy for so many years.

He will put out a team on Wednesday that he feels can do the job. He also has to make sure we are ready for Wolves on the Saturday because, that too, is an important game for us. He will know more than I do (as I know nothing about it) if anyone is carrying a knock and needs to be rested with Saturday in mind.

It's getting ridiculous that we are posting, criticising him before he has even made any announcements about the side and then everyone getting on the posters and each others backs about it but
I suppose it shows how toxic this site is becoming.

Lets take a deep breath and do what we are meant to do as supporters and support the bloody team!

Very grown up comments on here.

27 Aug 2019 08:13:53
Not insults Swan - facts.

27 Aug 2019 11:18:45
Oh you've done me there mate, such witty banter, bless your cotton socks for that response.

27 Aug 2019 11:19:47
Rotation is key, along with rest and form, so for me there has to be changes to the 11. People just belittle the club and marco before the team sheets have been announced.
