    I'm going to slate all our forwards now...

    Good question however, if we win at Pompy this Sunday, it would mean back to back wins, 5 points and restored confidence. Would you then give up the two cups for six points? I wouldn't.

    • Depends how ambitious you are. The big teams regard the league cup as a minor trophy. The six points would mean you wouldn't be bottom of the table. Surely you'd like to be in Europe next season? Safest way is to finish near the top of the league. Cups are very unpredictable.

      • I'd maybe swap the UEFA win, we could still pull that back in the second leg and Ramos is supposed to be a 'cup specialist' so that,s a fun route to go down. I also think being knocked out of 2 cups by the end of Sept would be more of a confidence knock than being low in the table after 4 games - a team will always have highs & lows in a league, that's why it's played over a year. Hopefully soon we'll have our bad patch over, and playing back-to-back Newcastle and Portsmouth can't hurt. They've got the worst goal difference in the league right now, and we know a lot of their players have something to prove to us, so hopefully that should be enough to spur the team on.

        If we get the right combination of players and sensible formation Seaside Spurs won't know what's hit them!
