Somebody has got a hardon for Tonev. If we'd keep Paulinho quiet and they didn't use key subs too early, we'd have a chance...that's if Weimann was starting and not Tonedev ("Don't shoot!")

Interesting to see how Albrighton gets on tonight. And I really hope Tonev scores a screamer.
Stephen Jay Hawkings
Tonev is shocking. fact. Pub team against a top team, we are totally being out played. You can clearly see the difference between cheap imports and expensive class players. KEA offers nothing in midfield.
ShaneBlack
Somehow I think Weimann, Helenius, Albrighton up front will be more effective....ie take Tonedev and Kojak off, and save the other sub for any potential knocks or extra time. Why can't we ever mark runners through the middle btw?
malacaxeta
I agree the marking is terrible!
ShaneBlack
Hands down that was a penalty.
malacaxeta
question would you rather have Darren Bent to bring on or Bowery?
ShaneBlack
Without Gabby, Benteke, Weimann and Delph, we are no better than a League 1 team. Lambert must have told the players to lose the game so we can concentrate on not getting relegated. That's the only way I can explain that performance.
Stephen Jay Hawkings
I like having Bowery there, great to think there's someone in our first team worse than me (46 and a few stone overweight).
onlyteaminthemids
Don't get me started. Anyone who thinks weve come far since 12 months ago is drinking the kool aid. We have no apparent strength in depth whatsoever. Once IKEA came off with the bizarre half subs it was game over, so if you're going to scratch a League Cup game then do it properly and send the Nextgen team out (who incidentally would have done better) and pay the meagre League fine - cheaper than picking up yet another knock.
