Right, I'll be in Vegas Wednesday.  I'm placing bets on every remaining home game of the season for a 0-1 loss - that ought to fix things. 

(I’d never really bet against my side) 

Well if you do bet against us, you know the saying "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas..." ūüėČ

We need to win, we also need some players to get games, and Silva to get a rest.

 

Petrovic

 

James

Disasi 

Badiashile 

Maatsen

 

Ugochukwu 

Enzo

 

Madueke 

Palmer

Mudryk

 

Broja

This seems reasonable. Rest a few players but still put out a pretty strong team.

Rovers a mid table team in the championship have let in an average of 1.5 goals per game.

I don't want to waste Reece on this one, so I'm  going with 

gusto disasi badiashile maatsen (although Colwill could play instead of Disasi)

 ugo conor

         palmer

madueke jackson mudryck

It is incredible how thin the attacking options are. Madueke will likely get injured soon anyway.

caicedo and enzo can sit out another game.

Rovers have some decent attacking players but also concede a fair amount of goals. I suspect they will probably go for an attacking approach in this game based on that, so hopefully we won't be facing another low block. But who knows?

Agree with the fielding a strong team argument. Only way we will qualify for a European spot this season is by winning this. 

Winners of EFL Cup go into Europa Conference League. The FA Cup winners go into Europa League. Winning either would be great, given our current outlook in the league. A few of the top 6 teams are already knocked out of EFL Cup, including City. But lets hope we can get past Blackburn and then worry about a potential QF.

I think this competition is our only hope this season.  Should have enough to turn Blackburn over . The luck of the draw will depend how far we go though, still some difficult teams left in the mix many of them struggling in the league will also see this an opportunity to get to Europe albeit in a tinpot cup....still if we win that we'd have won every European trophy I suppose.

Exactly! I am pining for the Conference League trophy! We can't say we've won it all until we've actually laid our hands on this one.

Oh the parties in the street come May 2025....
