Harry on a roll, Dele back, Victor still out. Join us at Flannery's as we pluck the Swans at Wembley.
Come on the yids!

Had to work, couldn't watch.
Thought we'd bully Swans.
What happened?

Dominated without bullying. 75/25 possession, 26 shots with 8 on target to their 0 shots on target. Three center backs was probably overkill. Hit the bar and fizzed a couple just past the post but only one real good save from Fabianski. They parked the bus and we were disapointingly impotent.

sissoko started (d.o.a., collectively). dier quite poor, expected much more from him with a chance to cement a spot in central midfield. 

still lacking creativity in the middle of the pitch, what does dier offer as a midfielder v. a team that parks it? i'd have preferred winks.

Conversation is a lot different if a penalty is given for the flagrantly intentional handball. But it shouldn't have come to that. It reminded me a little of the first 87 minutes of our match away to Swansea last season. Too wasteful. Maybe a bit of a hangover from Dortmund, as well. I didn't think I'd find myself saying this, but it really hurt not being able to start Davies, and I wasn't a fan of switching Trippier to the left, where the most dangerous part of his game seemed neutralized. ("Kieran Trippier, he plays on the right"...?) And I thought taking Son off, instead of Dier, Sanchez, or even Dele, was a head scratcher.

Wondering what we do for FB/WB on Tuesday...Davies/KWP or KWP on left? Llorente with a start up top, I hope.

So many little things didn't go right on Sunday, but at the end of the day teams know how to place us at Wembley - cede possession and defend with discipline. Bar the better teams who will come to play, no matter what personnel or formation we play, we should expect a tougher time breaking down defenses and winning at home this year - a price we must pay to make the biggest move in club history in a long time.

Top 4 will be very diff this year with the home disadvantage. we really do need to focus on winning one of the bigger cups if we stand any chance of retaining this squad next year.
