Giving 3 of the younger players a chance should still be strong enough. I'd have put Balcombe in goal but his performance the other day against Huddersfield was not his finest

Same team as normal.

Bar Rico Henry. Having just come back from another long spell out, I'd like to see him rested. It would be mental to start him! Tom Field starting in his favoured position starting. No chance unfortunately.

Ollie Watkins has looked like he's 'getting through' games recently - I'd rest him. Sergi Canos or Benrahma out wide with Chiedozie Ogbene getting a chance from the start.

2 changes, 9 regulars. Should be more than enough to see us do the job.

Strongest team possible, as possibility of 250/500k if we win and get a good draw

We will make a couple of changes but.....................

IMO respect Barnet and put out our strongest team.

Regardless of the cup the one thing we dont want to happen is lose and kill off all the recent good work and confidence building.

We’ve been given a very winnable tie. Get through and we’re two games from Wembley. A very strong side please

With only 3 premiership sides through into the next round so far this is beginning to look even more exciting. COYB's.

Looking at the training pics, Balcombe, Mads Bech and Forss are all in the travelling squad..

Unchanged team please ! Look at what happened to Everton and especially West Ham ! Anyone who thinks this will be an easy game is complacent! Barnet apart from their last game when their keeper was sent off have been decent lately apparently. We have to expect a really tough game , we didn’t exactly blow a poor Oxford away in the last round with 4 changes , Maupay , Sawyers are integral to the way we play and they need to start. Let’s prioritise the FA Cup , we aren’t going down and we’ve left it too late to make the playoffs, it’s great national exposure and with some luck with the draw a semi final place is a bigger possibility than a play off place. Would make negotiating with an agent for a foreign player we want to sign just that bit easier !! .
Take this game lightly and we can be embarrassed!!

Completely agree both Maupay and Sawyers have to start

Everything to lose in this game. All neutrals and pundits will root for Barnet, so nothing less than our strongest XI will do. Rubbish argument for resting anybody given we haven't played for days and there will never be a better chance to get to round 5.

I would hope that any changes that are made, are based upon the likely physicality and determination of the opposition, rather than giving untested players a chance to prove themselves, which is what happened that disastrous evening a few years back against Oxford in the League Cup. Forget the supposed disappointment of Barnet fans drawing dull Brentford; for each and everyone of their players this game is massive, as a win takes them to the fifth round for the first time in the club’s history, and more positive exposure than they will get from any other game this season. We need the likes of both Sawyers and Maupay to start IMO, and we need to go out and impose our game on them, as the longer it remains nil nil, the more they will gain belief in the opportunity to cause an upset.

We don't exactly have a raft of ever-presents either this year.
If anything there's probably people who could do with MORE first team action to get back to, or reach, their best (whether following injury or not)!

Man City played an almost full strength side yesterday and look what they did! We should do the same.

Indeed. They are very confident they will beat us after their win against Sheffield United. Most of them carefully avoid the fact that they played a Sheffield team team with 10 changes. I’m fairly confident we won’t be doing a Sheffield.

Man City have got such a good squad they can make 6 or 7 changes and they still full strength.

TF implied in his Moose interview, available on the OS, that there wouldn't bee many, if any, changes. He reiterated that we want a good cup run this year!

This is getting more and more interesting as the cup progresses. Must win tomorrow, then a good home draw for the next round for the quarter finals and then who knows if we can avoid the two Manchester sides.

Said a few changes which I read as possibly three which I would take to be Moses for Henrik and Canos for either Benrahma or Ollie. Then a case of who is in goal and does McEachran play instead of one of the two guys in middle of park.

I would go with this to give Sawyers a break and also his yellow cards are mounting up but I think Neil Maupay will and should start up front

I'm with the "Put out the first team and take no chances" gang. If it wasn't a big enough game, especially for Barnet of course, but also for us, we will know who the winner will face in the 5th Round before the game starts as the draw is on the BBC One Show. Drawing one of the big boys will put even more wind in their sails!

I expect that’s what he’ll go with although JM in a two man midfield makes me very uneasy.
McEachran makes no sense alongside Kamo, 3 centre backs and two holding midfielders hands the initiative to the home side?

They are a non league side and I would expect us to try and quickly seize the initiative and not let them get into the game.

For that reason I hope Romaine starts alongside Kamo in a two man midfield.

God no! If TF plays that team and we lose then I could never forgive that madness, Josh is pap, Kamo wants to play there and who is going to provide any ammunition for anyone ahead?

Talking to Barnet supporters, they are scared stupid of our passing ability and speed. So, we must maximise on these fronts. And that means minimum of changes. We don't play again until Saturday and haven't played since last Saturday, no excuse for not playing full strength squad from the start - bring newbies on if we are cruising but don't risk starting them but hope a strong bench can salvage a mess.

A team to win the game please! No issue with Daniels in for Bentley (designated "cup keeper") plus Moses and Canos given they are genuine 1st teamers anyway and could probably do with the minutes. No kids/B teamers though!

This could be a really good chance for us to go deep in this competition, especially now promotion and relegation appear very remote possibilities. Let's not balls it up!

I think that's exactly right. Just two more wins after tonight and we're there, and save for probably Utd/City/Chelsea away, we'd have a decent shout whoever we get

I want to see a strong starting team too. I do wonder whether we might see Forss for the first hour, then Neal.

What total nonsense. We should win but need to respect them more. We’re not at home either.
