    I'm glad they won. I still hold hope we'll take the competition seriously at some point and the more shit in the draw the better. Plus it's Arsenal, I've always disliked them more than nearly any other team. Their fans will be in meltdown, fam. You get me, blud? Etc etc

    How did they manage to lose when they had 8 internationals in the team?

    I'm sure Wenger will be asking said players the very same thing. Oh, and blaming the referee for the penalty decisions.

    I'll be happy if we get through and get these miserable, deluded has beens.

    As long as we don't pick 8 random internationals that is.

    Every football fan in the world should have this on their wall at home. Until it's yellow & faded. Just so they can show it to their children & grandchildren:

    "Who were they Dad? & what did they win?"

    "Arsenal my son...& **** all"

    Then when the child's expression of bewilderment appears:

    "There's a life lesson there son...work out what it is, then remember it"

    If your child is a touch on the thick side you could help out a little by giving them a clue:

    " It includes the following words: be, don't, embarrassing, laughable, deluded, fucking & bellend "

    Maybe we played for a clean sheet, working on defensive frailties.
    Maybe we (dare I say it) agreed a replay as a belated bonus for Jamie.
    Maybe CP wanted to see various players in specific roles.
    It was a FA cup tie and these things happen.
    I'm glad we are still in and not worried about our darlings getting tired because of the replay.
    Role on the next round draw.

    Completely agree with the entire post however, what do you do with the likes of Inneachio? Thomas should have started imo it was the perfect environment for him Benny is completely mental and played like an old fashioned div 4 defender in the 80's i.e. just hoofed it. Trying to look at it objectively the pitch was shabby and it was evident there was a complete lack of understanding through out the team, we should steam roller them in the replay.

    The midfield was virtually bypassed all game so James and Silva struggled through out, I just don't understand the mentality of the squad players perhaps they feel they do not stand a chance of holding down a first team spot, either way I agree we really do need to streamline all of our squads. As for all of the other teams that field a weakened side and are rolled over deserve everything they get, tbh I did not think Fleetwood were capable of creating a clear scoring chance even at the end the shot that hit the post was a deflection.

    Alot for Claude to mull over

    This has to be a wind-up.

    Agree with most of what you say. However I differ on one crucial point about squad rotation.

    I am quite certain that our Champions XI was just that. I am certain we had the fewest numbers of players used in matches.

    Part of what made us champions was the fact that it was nearly the same XI every match.

    I remember being genuinely scared that when Vardy was injured for 2 or 3 matches, the sky was going to fall in, and we would get tonked.

    It did not happen. We kept on winning.

    It’s just outright fucking disrespect to repeatedly get someone’s name that wrong. It’s not even a complicated sequence of letters.

    No it's not. There are a number of other reasons that might explain it.

    Would we have won the title if we had also been playing in a European competition or going the distance in a domestic cup? I don;t think so. After all, the debate on here is about rotating the squad for a cup tie. Also, name any team and manager that has successfully managed a group to league and cup success without rotating players in the modern era?

    We were also really fortunate in our title winning season to pick up so few injuries. Our record was so unusual it drew claims that our players were on drugs such was the incredulity from our rivals. We cannot expect a season like that again and to hope for one would be folly. Just like this season and last season, we'll suffer multiple injuries and need a squad that can cope with them. Rotation of a squad helps this because players can slot in seamlessly. It's much easier to do this when the player is regularly involved. Dragging someone in from nowhere - Dragovic or Amartey for example - just leads to us needing to make allowances or give them several matches to get up to speed. And that is more likely to cost us points than making small changes each match to keep a pool of 20 players routinely involved.

    Arrogance, not caring enough, terrible individual performances of their centre backs.... lots of other factors. What has confused you?
