The League Cup game vs United is the least of the next three games. So we need to go hard in the game tonight and the game on Sunday.
Moses Mata Marin
I would go with that tonight. Try to use the wings to stretch the game and get some crosses in for Torres who is not bad in the air. If it's not going well, then bring on Hazard. Would keep Oscar out of the game tonight.
I think you are probably right if we don't play Moazascar then I think we will line up in a more conventional 4-3-3 with Moses and either Marin/Bertrand playing more like wingers than usual. Would really like to see Sturridge start either tonight or in the League Cup though. If he goes in Janurary I can forsee us paying over the odds for a striker in January (again) and simultaniously pissing off Torres if we get one who is actually any good.
Sturridge will definitely play in the League Cup game. Wouldn't mind seeing him tonight either. All Sturridge has to do is buy into the philosophy of linking up with MAZACAR and not look for goal at every opportunity and he'll knock Torres out of the first team, because ability wise he is a lot better than this Torres we have.
The only way We can get anything out of the Barca game is if we just have a go at them, if we just stick 10 behind the ball then it will be a cricket score
We're dangerous from set-peices so if we press them and get some corners and free-kicks then we've got chances for some goals with our height advantage in the area and we got somebody who can get goal's from free-kicks in Charlie Mulgrew
