All I'm hoping for is that we do not lose.

And also...

Here's my starting line up:

Steele
Veltman, Igor, Dunk, Milner
Dahoud, Gross
Mitoma, Lallana, Adingra
Ferguson

Subs: Verbruggen, Hinshelwood, Gilmour, Baleba, Buonanotte, Pedro, Chouchane, Jackson, Duffus

I've gone for the most experienced heads available, with the expectation that Pedro, Gilmour, Baleba, Hinsh and Buonanotte will play a part in the second half. Here's hoping :cool::bloom:

I get experience, but I worry about defending against pace - bar Mitoma and Adringra that is a slow side.

Hoping for a Dunk-Igor masterclass in smashing their attacks to pieces and building a wave of devastating attacks from the back, linking up with Gross and Dahoud to release Mitoma and Adingra to lay a hatfull of tap-ins on a plate for Ferguson.
0-4, hattrick for Ferguson and a colossal, thumping header from Anthony Taylor's nemesis.

I don't disagree but to my mind it would be a big risk chucking in, say, Hinshelwood at left back. Dahoud's definitely playing, given the Premier League ban coming up, and we HAVE to play Pascal for so many reasons, so not sure there's room for Baleba in the midfield. I guess switching Lallana for Pedro would bring more pace up front, but we need some game-changing options on the bench and he's pretty much it.

The Google Translate tool makes that forum appear mildly insane.

Our eyes will see the best team that has stepped on the Temple. Modestly and humbly.. Brighton were AMAZING inside Nottingham, the depth of their squad is proving capable of erasing the smudges of absences.

They are one of the best teams in the world, as we saw clearly in the first leg.
