We can probably get away with rotating some defensive options and not hurting the starting XI. In attack we are woefully short of any variations.

Thereís two games before City and injuries and suspensions could still occur. Right now iíd Plan to get Zaha, Loftus-Cheek, Townsend and Benteke onto the pitch in all 4 Christmas games.

Absolutely. Southampton benefited last season when the fixture pile up meant we lost against Spuds ( and Sakho ) and had nothing in the tank at St Mary's. Would like to see a plan to play our most vital players no more than an hour against Citeh and should they start running awau with the game, get off everybody we can.

And their weakened teams are normally not 'weak' at all because they have the ability to spend massively and remain outside of constraints placed on smaller clubs. It's all part of the F.I.F.A. program to ensure the same old brands don't win everything forever and ever, because that wouldn't be good for global media and all the corporate / advertising / merchandising cash that the incorruptible F.I.F.A. cares nothing about given their commitment to a level sporting playing field for all.

We get 5 days off before Arsenal so we can give the next 2 games a right good go then see how the squad feel after that. Itís all about momentum. Two decent results will put us in good shape (& spirit) to give MCFC a good go!

Arsenal aren’t a force anymore. Not since we done them last season. I want full strength teams against both. Especially City. We need all the points we can get.

The point some are making is that thereís more chance of points v Southampton than City.

This is v similar to the discussion we had last year about the match v Arsenal. Had we rested some for that, we would have had more energy against Swansea a few days later, when weíd looked knackered.

We've been screwed by the fixtures being so close together.

Southampton away is more important than Man City at home. We have a realistic chance of getting something from Southampton so that should be the priority. We should be looking to overtake Southampton.

The only concern would be our goal difference.

Hopefully we will beat Swansea and Arsenal beforehand!
If we beat both Iíd expect all the lads would be up for the city game.

It will be tough with the gaps between fixtures, but all the sides we play will be rotating as well so we can probably rotate to some extent. The big problem we have though is that we have very little quality in the squad outside the regular starting 11. Think this is where Roy having a system which works for the whole squad helps us (eg Sakho, Ward both out injured and yet we are still winning/hard to beat). Iím sure Hodgson will have a plan already in terms of who he might bring in for some of these games. I would be surprised if he makes a lot of changes though.

Swings and roundabouts . Players get a bigger break than they would if playing Boxing Day for Arsenal game.Would imagine that they get to have Christmas Day with the family. Always a funny result or two around this time. Letís hope itís us against City. Those of us who are somewhere else Boxing Day get to go to the game on the 28th. Just depends on your circumstances. Can never suit everyone.

Chance to give some players a run out against City and concentrate the 1st team on Arsenal and Southampton. Last year we were caught out with the scheduling I think this year we need to be more calculated. Also a good opportunity for a few to raise their game and make names for themselves.

Would play the following team v City :-

----------------Hennessey---------------------

TFM-------Kelly-----Delaney----Souare

CYL-----Puncheon---Riedwald---PVA

----------------Sako------Mutch---------------
