He was being sarcastic ffs.

RB for the vast majority of team set-ups isn't too important, it's only if you play with inverted wingers or a narrow diamond formation where they have to possess real attacking quality. Most of the time they're just needed for the overlap, and to put a decent ball into the box.

Wot, 17 points?

Quite jokes that Chelsea basically have been in title winning form since the turn of the year in this league and were relegation battlers earlier in the season.

Thats a bit like saying since Romero was playing very well for us we must start him and let DDG displace him...

If you have a better player then youre obviously not going to let an inexperienced teenager take his place completely will you?
Romero was playing well but not better than DDG. Besides, we've seen that DDG is very clearly one of the best goalkeepers in the world and that Romero clearly isn't.

Varela on the other hand has been performing better than Valencia at RB. We've seen that Valencia is a meh RB anyway whereas Varela is clearly performing better than Valencia usually does. Let's not forget that Valencia isn't even a natural RB unlike Varela.

Anyway thoughts on Kane getting his 20th this season in early March considering you were doubting him?

BT Sport is a terrible platform considering its parent company is a telecommunications giant. Its just embarrassing how they can't seem to get an App that works or a channel than can reliably broadcast.

If we can beat West Brom, that would firmly put is back in this top 4 race. Title race is too far away, but a maximum of 5 points on 3 different teams in the top 4, if we play like we deserve it, we''ll get it with this many games left. Hopefully get some luck with injuries because we'll need some strong teams with the Europa, FA and then our start of April time fixtures.

The players simply have to deliver tomorrow to keep us in the top 4 race. Win tomorrow and we'll put a lot of pressure on Arsenal and City (even though they have a game in hand).

there is a huge amount of difference between De Gea and Valencia mind you, one is our best player whilst one is a squad player, its a ridiculous comparison in my opinion

Varela is not a teenager, he's 22 and has taken his chance well and he should keep his spot in the team, and there's an argument that Varela > Valencia, without him I don't think we'd have beaten Arsenal.

My argument had nothing to do with beating teams though.

It's a bit of skewed logic. Sure he's been playing well but if our more experienced squad players return from injury fully fit then obviously they will be taken as a priority for that position. For example Luke Shaw coming back in place of Jackson (of courss he will have to build up fitness but yeah you get my point).

Even if our most experienced players are worse than the less experienced ones?
Experience is not more important than quality. It's a nice bonus but quality is what's more crucial. I'm sure you, like most people, think Varela > Valenica. But are you saying that you're going to put Valencia back into the team just because he has more experience whilst admitting he's not as good as Varela? Do you think experience is more important than quality?

With regards to Luke Shaw, I agree that he should be returning to first team football because we've seen how good he is. CBJ or any of the other competitors for the LB spot have not shown greater quality than Shaw has when he played. But I'm not saying this because he's got more experience, but that he's got more quality.

Was way more confident against Arsenal than I am today weirdly.. this is exactly the type of fixture we mess up in. But we seriously have to get all 3 points if we're to keep the bit of hope for top 4 alive.

I'd go with the same team but Smalling in for Blind who has played nearly every minute this season (which is mental) and looked shattered on Wednesday. Timothy deserves to start again. Varela is doing too good to be dropped.

Very interesting read. Pretty sure people wouldnt be that happy if Giggs took over.
