Going to need a bigger Rob Rowan honours board. Hope Halil and Saman show us what they can do.

Looks like we're taking no chances at all with most of the first team.

I assume Stevens will be playing holding midfield like at Maidenhead.

It will be interesting to see how the debutants do - Gilbert's style reminds me a bit of Robert Pires.

Only 5 subs, thought Goode might of got a start and given Pinnock or Sorensen a rest, must not be fit enough.

Whats the midfied do we think...3 or 5 ?
well we’ve only got 2 midfielders in the squad!! Guessing stevens or Roerslev DM. A bit more rotation than expected! Obviously taking no chances with our remaining 3 first team midfielders.. hope they’re not basing dervisoglus future solely on this game. Could be a bit of a lottery

Probably why Stevens was playing DM for the B team earlier this week then. Not just to get Mads some game time but probably with an eye on this game

Intrigued to see Gordon, we don't exactly have a lot of options at left back at the moment.

Could be a complete lottery as you say. Then again the whole 3rd round has been the same. I steered clear of the fixed odds today

Gutted that can't be sitting freezing my arse off having forked out a tenner to watch our B team against a Warnock-inspired Boro squad remnants XI

Bees and Ipswich are last legs on a bet with 3 teams that have already won. Done 5 teams in any 4 from 5 and all 5 . To be honest wouldn’t of included Bees at 4/9 but still expect us to win.

'Boro fans think that's an attacking line-up for them.

Liverpool at present
That should be strong enough. We could do with another little run to give the boys a run-out and in the event of postponements. Then take it from there.

Just read on Bees app that the FA have said we can name 9 subs, surprised we've only named 5.

Danny Murphy , first mention for Brentford being a good team in the commentary of arsenal v newcastle 3 minutes 45 seconds.

Going to be a tough game with that midfield. We really are down to the bare bones for this, just hope we can get the ball to the front 3/4 so they can show us what they can do. Guessing hammar must be injured too? He’d have slotted in to the DM slot nicely..
