I’m really trying to come up with a team that doesn’t need to play Townsend and struggling.
He needs a break, has far less time off than Wilf.

Ayew must play as must Benteke to get fitness and if Bats can play he’ll need some game time.

yeah, he certainly is a key cog to most formations. Some players are better off simply continuing to play maybe?

Go 433
Luca central, Meyer right and Sch left.
Front 3 of Ayew left, Bat right, Ben up top.

Any disrespect will result in us getting turned over on Sunday. Donny have lost two games in their last 16. Winning very 3-0 last night again at home where they haven't lost since October.

They will fancy their chances and quite rightly. Which is probably the way we are hoping they'll play.

Yeah I was thinking that but Bat does nothing outside of the box, and Benteke is not Lukaku who can put a shift in at a wider position.
He’s played so much, would be good to give him a break. Kind of makes me more angry that Wilf being selfish doesn’t really allow us to do it.

This is a nutshell.

One good thing about Roy's pragmatic style is I can't see him allowing any room for complacency.

Ayew did well against Fulham and didn't get a look in against West Ham. Think he deserves a crack on the left of an old fashioned 442.

Guaita

Ward - Kelly - Dann - PVA

Meyer - Milivojevic - Schlupp - Ayew

Benteke - Batshuayi

As i mentioned earlier in my selection this is a wonderful opportunity to progress without underestimating Donny, but the reality is they are no more than an average Div1 team and surely we should be able to overcome them even by resting a few important regulars (see my selection) as staying in the premiership is far more financially important.
I respect that is your opinion and feel it is the way we should go, but my opinion is it is a very risky policy that could have serious consequences if say Zaha and Luka were to get injured.
Grimsby are mid table div 2 and let’s be honest that was hardly a romp

Why is the squad restricted? If anything it's actually a wee bit stronger than it was at the end of December. We might have one less player but Roy is more likely to pick these ones.

If we had three matches in a week I'd agree but there's essentially a two week period with two matches so i'd maintain the form of the team and take advantage of what looks like a potentially very favourable draw that could see us get to another semi-final something that might help us retain some of our more valuable players.

Interesting thoughts looking at their forum. They seem very level headed on the whole. If we go into this game underestimating them and get knocked out due to disrespecting them, I'll be furious. Not that I think we will.

This is the OP from their pre match thoughts thread....

To view the link you have to Register or Login

A big test in front of a sell out crowd, and a large national TV audience, and against the ultimate test a Premiership team led by an ex England manager. Only playing a top six side away would be seen as a bigger test by the football media, most of whom will give us little chance of progressing, and really will not want us to do anyway, wanting the competition to revert to norm being the property of the top teams in the country in their eyes.
Can we pass the test and progress? a big question,but after the way we destroyed Southend last night, in my mind not impossible if Crystal Palace take us lightly.
They have big name players, international players who's names are known all over the world, and to be fair not a bad player on their books being a premiership team. If they play well they should win, But will they? even the best teams can only play as well as the opposition let them.
If we play as well as last night, they will have to play well to beat us, Our clever players in midfield all being on it together, and the rest of the team responding to their promptings.
It is a chance for all our players to showcase their ability to a wide audience, in a game that nationally is the biggest in our clubs history. John, Ben, Herbie, and all the other players having a chance to advertise to the football world how good a player they are, and old man Coppinger show just how good a player he has been, overlooked by many big sides who would have benefited from his undoubted ability.
Do you think like me we have a fighters chance?
Will Palace play their strongest side ?
Will Roy let his precious premiership players change in our changing rooms? apparently he didn't at Notts County some years back when taking Fulham, whose own facilities were worse than Notts Counties, and like Barnsley got changed on the bus.
Who are the players you fear that you think can take us to the cleaners?
If you are a Palace fan reading this, are you confident you will be too good for us?
These and many more questions to be answered about this game, a game we the supporters of the Rovers can relax and enjoy, and where all the pressure is on the Palace to win. Please discuss and have your say.
