FA Cup team selection? 04:10 - Feb 11 with 3814 viewsJethroJack

If (no, when!) we beat Sheffield Wednesday, do you think Carlos will be tempted to select the Premier League team for the Quarter Final? It falls on the same weekend as the Southampton game (17 March) which would therefore have to be re-scheduled.

From today's Guardian:

"Burnley have a two-week break to be reinvigorated, including a warm-weather training camp in Portugal, before hosting Southampton on 24 February."

I imagine a lot of the other clubs at the bottom of the table will be doing the same thing*. It's not just the extra Cup games that's the problem for players, it's the way that it fills up the schedule, leaving no time to train properly.

But although I'm moaning, it's a nice problem to have, and I'm really loving this FA Cup run.

*UPDATE: "West Brom are off to Spain after this game, a trip they hope will refresh the squad and bond them together."

The worst thing that could happen to us at the moment is to have a break.
Much better to keep that pot boiling 😜

This.

The teams that go warm weather training, I bet they underperform in their first game back.

Clement didn't do one last year despite having a break and we turned out OK in the long haul.

Poll: Do you want the Irish to get through?
