Why Steele? Verbruggen was outstanding in Athens and last week. There’s no need to keep changing keeper.
I can't understand it. Bart has been getting progressively better over the run of games he's had. Can't help the defence to have a different keeper behind them every other game either.

Totally agree. And in a game we are likely to be under the cosh with so many players missing, he controls his box much better than Steele, who’s only good quality is distribution

Both keepers know that they have two ‘on’ and two ‘off’. Vebruggen can now absolutely focus on Burnley in 6 days time and the following Europa group decider against Marseilles. That is the ‘need’.

Whether it’s justified, we’ll see how Steele does against West Londoners over the next 72hrs.

That team looks extremely weak. We do lack strength in depth at the club, which is a real problem with our European campaign. I fear that a seriously large defeat is on the cards today.

Currently managing the Albion in FM24, it's 2028 and we've just played Chelsea:

No, we don't lack strength in depth. We have LOADS of injuries.

Would have rather seen O’Mahony given a chance from the start than Buonanotte again
Ferguson and his clone? We don’t have room for more than one player of that ilk. At some point, Buonanotte is going to click. RDZ has very little options with such crippling injuries. He has to take the gamble and hope the young Argentinian matches his potential some time soon.
