    It will be Jota for me.

    I went to that FA Cup win in 02/03. Think Ndah became my favourite player at that point

    I would expect it to be Jota too, depends how Podence has looked in training I guess and Neto hasnít done a lot wrong either. Nice to have options though!

    Iíd love Diogo to find his shooting boots on Friday though.

    Slipped to 9th as it stands & only 1 win in our last 6 league matches. We need a big performance and a big win here or we risk falling further back.

    I know Nuno says he doesn’t pay attention to the table, but I don’t believe him!

    Fully expect Jota to start, even though Neto deserves to. As Carrot says above, it’s nice to have options.

    Echo that - we need to start winning games. And yes, Neto deserves to start, I'd want Podence to start, Jota will start
    Prediction 24th January: 14 games to go: 6 wins, 5 draws, 3 defeats - final points 57 when the league finishes in May 2023...

    Jota, Neto, Podence, Traore - really don't mind who we start which shows that at least there we have depth in the squad even if we don't elsewhere.
    This year we are going to break up the big 6 clubs (instead of just Arsenal)

    Just thinking exactly the same, although Traore probably has to start if fit I guess

    Nuno says Traoreís shoulder is fine, I donít know much about these things but popping out twice fairly recently canít be a great sign - I wonder if itís something that will need surgery in the off season?

    Could help if players weren't actively to tackle and push him into oblivion, probably.

    Probably one of the most fouled players in the PL this season as it's the only way most can deal with him before he goes past them & is away.

    Referees need to give some protection, but they mostly don't.

    Probably. IIRC Captain Marvel has to leave the World Cup in 1986 with a similar problem. Big Ron decided that Man Utd were more important than England and put off the operation earlier in the season. Is Adama risking the chance of a summer tournament with Spain?

    Like McGuire grabbing Traore's arm with both hands and trying to wrestle him to the ground and no action taken by any of the officials.

    Hope we don't concede first, doing so will allow Leicester to sit back and hit us on the break.
    Conversely if we score first we can do the same.
    I don't think James Madison is all he's cracked up to be anyway, no better than Grealish.
    Harvey Barnes will be a better player long term imo.

    My Dad's shoulder used to do the same and he popped it back himself. These days it would almost certainly have had surgery & I suspect Adama is going the same way. Might actually work in our favour if he's being operated on in the summer - although it'll be tough on him if he misses the Euros

    He hasn't even got a cap for Spain yet, he ain't waltzing into their team.

    Look at Jota's first time hit for the first and third here and quick take for the second. This is the guy we need back

    Really looking forward to tomorrow. Not been myself for a while but I'm getting better, this is a chance to put it all back on the road.

    It feels like an epoch since the last game. Can't wait. Trying to get out of work early, but I won't know until I see how morning schizzle goes.

    We do need the goalscoring Jota back but the 1st and 3rd are pretty much the only way youíll ever finish those. Same pretty much applies for the second, after his touch leaves it nicely in his path on his left side.

    He's not finishing the 2nd or 3rd the way he's played recently though. He'd take too much time and not get his shot off.

    Ndidi out is good news indeed. Guess we might see Choudhury? Then again Rogers can be a bit gung-ho from time to time so maybe he'll play Praet *shrug*

    Think/hope we can get Traore at Chilwell as he seems to be one of those FBs who vastly prefers going forwards...we should be able to pin him back, and (IMO) he's not too hot defensively anyway.

    Pereira might be more of a problem. Great player.

    The second itís not a huge amount difference to the brighton chance. He did the right thing against brighton just executed it badly. Against Leicester itís a trademark leg swinger straight at the keeper, it just sits perfectly for the leg swinger. Most of his other chances off the top of my head have been bundling runs with the ball under is feet where he loses balance when he needs to shoot, Arsenal and Utd spring to mind.

    agree with much of this. Traore could have a lot of fun vs chilwell. Jonny needs to be on top of his game. Believe he's capable of winning the battle v Preira, but it'll be the key duel for me.
    On matchdays, I reckon it'll be a long time before my name is darlowolf...
