Anyone know if Fornals is injured? Rumours something is up after he missed the Spain match the other night.

Will also be amazed if Antonio plays given he's starring for Jamaica in Jamaica tonight.

Also, not to freak people out, Soucek didn't start tonight and not one of the five subs used.

Well earned rest I suspect. I hope...

Time for Kral to step up then.

If he was injured I doubt he would be in the squad? Maybe just rested.
Czech are already in the playoffs so does this game matter to them?

Edit. Just heard you get seeded by finishing second so was important

A point wouldn’t be a bad result, they’re a very decent side this year.

Soucek isn’t playing tonight because if he picks up a yellow he would miss the next game which would be a play off decider.

Why is that? Today is Tuesday, and he'll be flying first class back to London on Wednesday.

Because the club/Moyes seem to manage his fitness carefully given his age and chronic fitness woes, and he already made a cameo vs El Salvador a few evenings ago. I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets very anxious about him breaking down when he plays a lot of games. I just think the club tread extra cautiously with him.

Does that explain why he was left out of the squad on Sunday vs Sweden? He was still in the stadium for the match.

F*ck me, Antonio flying back in a Sopwith Camel, Soucek's leg fallen off, Fornals having triplets....I can't take it, can we just forfeit? It would be easier on my nerves.

That’s good news.

Of all our players he’s played the most minutes as he’s never normally rested when on international duty unlike Rice.

Antonio does worry me, playing him twice a week is asking for trouble. That being said, I would start him but I wouldn’t play him the full 90 though. We really do need another option to manage him better.

It was early on, but it was one of our finest results, given that it ended a run of total disaster against this lot, since their promotion.

I don't really know what to make of them, now they have the new coach. They certainly seem set to stay in the top flight, but I don't know what difference he has brought about since Big Beard took that short holiday in N17.

We should have enough to match this team, in my view, given that Fabianski, Johnson, Cresswell, Declan and Bowen have had a decent rest.

Obviously, through C&B specs, it might have been better for Antonio to get a similar rest, but, on the whole, we're in decent shape.

Just as with Villa Park, I am not going to be outraged if we get only one point.
