Dugout Discussion

Tuesday Dugout Discussion

Tonight we have four of the eight double Gameweek teams on show, and the Dugout Discussion opens to follow all the action as it unfolds. There may be little real-life significance in the two fixtures, but with our Fantasy campaigns on-the-line, here is the all-important team news…

Liverpool XI: Doni, Kelly, Coates, Skrtel, Aurelio, Henderson, Shelvey, Spearing, Maxi, Carroll, Kuyt.

Fulham XI: Schwarzer, Kelly, Hangeland, Hughes, John Arne Riise, Duff, Murphy, Dembele, Kacaniklic, Dempsey, Pogrebnyak.

Kenny Dalglish shuffles his pack with this weekend’s FA Cup final in mind, and Martin Jol makes three changes to his side, as Danny Murphy, Stephen Kelly and Alex Kacaniklic are all handed starting berths.

Stoke XI: Begovic, Huth, Upson, Shawcross, Wilson, Walters, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington, Jones, Crouch.

Everton XI: Howard, Hibbert, Heitinga, Jagielka, Distin, Anichebe, Osman, Fellaini, Pienaar, Cahill, Jelavic.

Matthew Upson, Rory Delap and Kenwyne Jones all earn starts for the home side this evening, with Tim Cahill and Victor Anichebe coming in for the visitors.

The Dugout Discussion chatroom is open and can be accessed right here.

    Hangeland deserves the 3. Won every header and made many clearances and tackles. When will a big team take a punt on him?!

      Terry and Mata rested. Tottenham concede 2 and Freidel gets no saves. Petrov gets two. Simpson is either out or going to get 1 point. So you'll get 99.

          the bitching and moaning this DGW has been of the charts..managers rotate, players are rested.get over it people! mata has two cup finals on the way, what did you expect?? i had suarez, i knew he wouldn play tonight but still felt it was worth palying him for that one game becasue norwich leak goals for fun. i think its been one of the best GW's yet because its been so unpredictable and teams have been so varied.everyone thought Jelavic would hit the forties after scoring a double against fulha, but he didnt now bale/vdv captainers have a chance to catch up.fantasy is a beautiful game!enjoy it.

But maybe you should go to that proud Englishman owner of your club Chelsea and tell him you dont want any club shirts or the like sold outside of England to none english fans that maybe cant afford to fly to another country to watch the match live. And while your at it tell him you want the players who are not english sold or sent back to the country your club bought them from. You Dip Stick

      A train is travelling westward at 89kph at 4pm. At the same time, a 10yo child on a bike (4 gears only) is travelling angle of 23 degrees South Eastwards to the train tracks, starting his journey 10miles away 58mins and 21 seconds later. He stops for ice cream, which takes 8mins to queue for and 9mins 12seconds to eat (during this time he only pedals at 34% of his average speed). My questions is: What was the ice cream flavour he chose and why?

      Rooney was pretty dire last night, RVP at home against an out of form Norwich...

        dunno if the fixture came 2 months ago i'd be all over rvp but i prefer rooney this week! either way i'm not captaining either because im chasing a 30 point gap in my ML so ill do something more dangerous! nani or adebayor perhaps

    England

    All the negativity surrounding Hodgsons appointment is really pissing me off. It's done, accept it and get behind him and the team.
    'Arry is a wideboy just waiting for the next skeleton to escape from his cupboard and hardly has a great track record.
    It's a tough job and feeding the media with anti Roy shit will make it harder. Give the guy a chance....

      agreed, but just think they've missed a trick. England would have gone into the Euros with a feelgood factor under Harry, now they'll be nervous as hell as usual

        + 1 the players wanted to play for Harry also, can Woy motivate them?

      Totally agree. The fact that people even have to say 'let's give him a chance' says alot about the red top reading mouth breathers that buy the tabloid crap that perpetuates the wild media fervour surrounding the squad. I feel sorry for Roy already. It's like Liverpool all over again.

      I think ye got a good one there, Hoy Rodgson is totally suited to international management and should be given a chance, Only problem is the English media-theyll hound the poor guy.

      I will admit to it. Didn't think Cahill touched it at the time, and not really sure even after seeing the replay a few times. I would be surprised if Hibbert loses the assist - but I have been surprised on more than one occasion this season. Depends if the guy from the PA has Cahill in his team, I think.

          disagree, all the hope is on newcastle now.

          it will need two 5-0 match from united and city only win both games by 1 goal. not realistic, and i think fergie knows that

            Am not saying Utd will do it but they have to try. And if wolves can get 4 past them surely Utd will feel they can get a few past them. Again am not saying it will happen just that they have to try
