Has this been asked?

FA Cup - is it any 3 from 7 subs, not 5 subs,  named in this competition?

If so, choices available if things don't go to plan for any changes in team selection.


3 from 7

This is not beyond the bounds of possibility - it makes you realise what a strong squad PH & Deputy Dawg have put together.


It's certainly the most capable looking squad we've had for some time, with no obvious weak spots, however they're only a couple of divisions below us, it will be both their biggest game and biggest crowd in many years and ultimately I expect Hurst to show them more respect than to put a completely new side out.

I would expect those players who have been consistently on the bench in recent weeks, plus the returning Efete to come in. That would mean starts for Efete, Pearson, Coke, LJL and Wright, with Sears, Waterfall, any of the three midfielders, Taylor and Sousa sitting out.

The biggest headscratcher of this squad for me is what you do if McAtee doesn't start; we've tried it once and it didn't really work. The likes of Taylor and LJL, and then Sousa, Bapaga and Wright are relatively interchangeable, but there's no like-for-like replacement for McAtee as he's such a wildcard. That's more a strength of the squad than a weakness as we're lucky to have him in the first place, but it's something we need to find an answer to nonetheless.

I mentally chose the same starters as you, but I wanted to give McAtee (& Taylor and Waterfall) a bench seat from which they would hopefully not be needed.
Also assumed the loanees will be unavailable.

So I had the same dilemma, and could see Ben Fox filling in. Aggressive, covers the pitch well, can spot a pass, fancies a shot...so there are some similarities imo.

I'm happy with whatever PH goes with, though. He's earned that respect for me.

I want to see a fairly strong side and leave big changes for the FA Trophy. It's a chance to progress in the competition and draw bigger sides down the line, with the revenue that brings. We haven't got any midweek games, so I can't see the point of wholesale changes.

Given the buzz around BP, and the ability of the players who aren't in the first XI, there must be players thirsting for a game.

PH has to manage this...and I trust him to do so.
