How many subs allowed in the Carabao, is it three like PL or five? Either way a strong line up that can go up to near our first choice XI.

5 subs allowed. Rule was amended back in October.

Do we assume Roerslev and Goode have Covid then?

I don't know the first thing about other team's squads. I'm only interested in Brentford. Couldn't even name a Chelsea player. Does that look a strong line up? How many are first teamers?
A few first teamers but not many

Not a clue mate I'm just the same. Ignorance is bliss!

Happy enough with our line up with the exception of leaving Ivan on the bench. I don't get that at all.

I don’t think any are first choice starters when the squad is all fit but an interesting mix of their best kids and their most experienced reserves who used to be first choice players. James, Rudiger, Kante, Mount and Jorginho are all first choice starters waiting on the bench.

No I’m not sure about that either. Maybe it’s to give Mbeumo and Wissa more experience playing as a front 2 together. We know Toney could play with either of them. Pretty sure if it was a league game Toney would start. Apart from that happy to see most of the squad fit and well

i don’t think they are English. See how they behave first, no point being petty if they are going to be half and half scarfers,
Yeah. The shirts have probably got red and white stripes on the back. 😂

Silly buggers just realised they are not with Chelsea fans and are talking to the steward and gesturing towards the away section,

Clearly never been to a game before, just leave them alone. 😂😂

Starting to get a bit anxious that the game isn't listed yet on a website I know. I didn't buy all this beer to drink watching poxy Spurs on Sky. :(

Really. The question needs to be asked how/where they bought their ticket in one of home areas then.

Point them in the direction of a prawn sandwich. :)

They’ve sold me a seat in the red zone tonight. Asked the steward if I should sit in there and he said “yes!”

Can you get their seat number and report formally ?

Sounds like they’re naive so perhaps they should be moved to the away end if there is a seat? Probably not their fault

Easily done if you are from abroad (do some countries have unsegregated seating still?) or have never been to a game like that Liverpool fan from Brighton who was in the papers with his crying son after they were refused entry to West Ham.

@mheadbee - v decent approach from you and more evidence of Bees fans being nice folks even though we don’t like away fans taking tickets off Bees.

Loving that lineup, even stronger than I thought it would be.

Let's get it done Bees!

The betting markets have moved significantly Brentford's way in view of the line ups. Chelsea still favourites but it's much tighter.
Yeah I saw that. We were 5.5 about 48 hours ago, now about 3.0 ish. Tbh I'm actually surprised we're not favourites now; maybe Chelsea's bench is tilting it their direction as no doubt they'll bring on the big guns if we're leading in the 2nd half.

Still.....I fancy us!

Three games in a week.
We didn’t start him in last year’s QF either. And Newcastle played a more first team line up.

They’re back now, all wearing new Brentford scarves. 😂
Another half and half just sat to my left.
Please let us know how their rendition of Hey Jude goes....
