3-4-3 that by the looks. Does the B team play that formation?

Agree it looks 3-4-3

I reckon that's a record for the most changes from one league game to a FA cup game. 10 in the starting line up?

Stoke playing a very strong team by looks of things... We change to 5 at the back for some reason. Good test for boys coming in

Hideous and so sad to see what has become of the FA Cup. I'm not even going to follow this. See you next week. :sad:

Do you think we should be playing our 1st choice 11 then?

Looking at Stokes team I do predict it’ll be a tough game.

As long as it’s fun and we score a few. Then Stoke shouldn’t take it too hard when we’re in the hat

In all seriousness Stoke are playing 5 in midfield. We are playing 2. Yes. 2.

Wing backs quickly become midfielders when we have the ball.

I’m quite excited by this side. Will be fun to see what they can do.

If the competition had an ounce of credibility left then yes, we should. But sadly it hasn't. So I'm struggling to find a single reason for it still to exist. :shrug:

I know what you mean and agree to a certain extent. But it’s been this way for many to years now. Money has caused this.

No complaints from me, but in all honesty I can't see us progressing and this looks like the last FA Cup tie at Griffin Park. Stoke look a stronger team with much more experience. However, it's never over until it's over, so we will see. I suppose a draw would be the worse nightmare in terms of fixture congestion.

Only one surprise Pinnock is playing. Rest will be worth it if we win next Saturday.

Glass half full or half empty? I suspect the latter in your case!

Why are the official start times one minute after the hour. Strange.

How many more times does this have to be explained? A 'reflection' on Mental Health Issues. All clubs that have a big screen have got a brief video to play highlighting that anyone suffering in this way should get help rather than just suffer.

Both youngsters reading out the teams are struggling with the names. Either they're not regulars (which I suspect is quite normal) or reflects the number of changes from regular starting line ups.

What about those with no big screen? Can GP's p.a system handle the audio?

Looks like a formation to ease as many b-teamers into the team without tipping the tie too far into Stoke's hands, from the look of the bench it can easily be tweaked to a 4-3-3 with the addition of Josh/Mathias.....I am a wee bit worried that that midfield is a bit light, need our wingbacks to properly engage further up the pitch to hit the notes.

Probably Jeanvier was ommitted as it would've left the bench light for a formation switch?

PG just announced there will be an audio. Also mentioned earlier that there will be a minutes applause at 25 minutes for the BA Steward Bees fan who got killed in that horrible car crash a few days ago.

Let’s hope Stoke’s misfits haven’t been properly introduced to each other.

Neither really, just trying to be realistic. I'm more sad at the thought of this possibly being the last being the last FA cup match at Griffin Park

Much as we will all miss the old girl, not really fit for purpose now. Got to move on.

It is a shame that the competition has become so lowly regarded that 2nd tier teams field their reserves.
Maybe the League Cup should be scrapped, leaving a single ( hopefully more significant )
FA Cup as the yearly knock out competition ?
I must sdmit that I have come to share the general malaise with the competition and really not that bothered about today's result.
Just hope there aren't any serious injuries....

The 3 centre backs IMO is pointless. It’s just Gregory. Could do with that man in midfield.
