Going to rotate a few players in and keep the core of my team fresh for the league as it's my main focus, anything gained from the cups is a major bonus, can't see Chris giving the points up easy here and will be looking for revenge after we pipped them in Germany on week one in the league.
Milan derby is always exciting. as we have always done in the past we use cup games to reset fitness and give chance to our rotation players to prove that they belong in the starting 11. This game wont be any different. We will still setup to win but with our reserve and bench players. After a positive 1st round performance despite a loss to the Elite League team we were very happy with the effort our lads put in, we expect more of the same and hopefully we can take at least A point from this one.
Away to my old club who are flying high top of division two so this is a potential banana skin, this is the important round of games for most, defeat and the last game could mean nothing, win and its all to play for
like most its down to priority and we want to get back to the Elite league next season, but we never drop key players, not even for cup games, finances are too important and every penny helps during the transfer market
looking forward to some very interesting midweek action
ianmcnamara: Can't believe we're in this posision with two games to go. We just silently crept up on Everton and capitalized. If I end up taking up a new challange at the end of the season leaving Schalk with a title win would be the perfect way to end my time there.
