I am not quibbling about Doctor Evil naming an unchanged team but the substitutes bench makes odd reading. Yes it is good to see Carew there. Yes it is promising to see Barrera there. Yes it is interesting to see Faubert there as an attacking option. But where is the cover for Tomkins? He limped off against Watford and has had to battle to be fit for this game. Surely Sam is taking a big chance by not having either Faye or Linda on the bench?
I hope that decision doesn't return to haunt him but we know that if it can go wrong, it will go wrong; so expect Tomkins to pull up after eight minutes! What then? O'Brien at centre back and Faubert at right back? Frightening thought!
