How many players do we lose in the international window? Put the full team out and give it a go we have nothing to lose.

Other than (possibly) some of our better players to injury which, in turn, may scupper our chances of promotion which, in turn, will financially ruin the club which, in turn, could bankrupt us and send us out of existence for ever and ever.
The End.

Yes, but other than that?
 
We should try to win things.

It's funny isn't it? How entitled we all became playing the stiffs in competitions that used to be associated with glory. And how hypocritical are we when we moan about Man Utd pulling out of the FA Cup that year. In a way, that's now respectful than playing the reserves.

That is the spirit.
 
Imagine the scenes when we do the double!
 
No Vardy and the other injured players are still out.

Apart from that, EM says there is no reason to rotate side.

Pleased to hear it. As long as he's true to his word.
