Rotherham prediction

Post by Danish Ranger » Fri Jan 07, 2022 9:53 am

Basically impossible to predict any of the 3rd round FA cup games !

I expect MW will rest most of our key players and give 2nd string game time

1-2

I'll go for a boring 0-0. No doubt be lots of goals now.!!!!!!

MW seemed to put out pretty strong teams in the Carabao Cup, so I imagine he will do here too. That said, he may rest one or two and we're already weakened by the loss of Chair and Dieng. We've struggled against their style of play in the past, although we are a more resilient team these days.

I still wouldn't be surprised if we lose though. 1-2 seems about right.

I think an easy 3-1 victory.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.

Some tough fixtures ahead this month so we could do with a straightforward win to encourage the players who are going to be used a lot more than they normally would due to injuries illness and African Cup , so fingers crossed for a 3-0

I would expect a fairly strong lineup so am expecting a win, although hard fought.
Let's say 2-1.

My view is that in a year when being in the promotion hunt is viable, then cup matches don't count for much. Let's face it, we're unlikely to win the FA Cup.

Accordingly, select the 'reserve' players, don't worry about the result and keep our main players fit for the league. It also gives MW another chance to decide if he wants to keep fringe players during this transfer window.

It's all about the money now. Cup runs can mean some nice extra revenue, even more if we get a live game. It looks like we've put out a pretty strong team too

They're making us look like monkeys. Wouldn't be surprised if we lost this one.

That's the worst 90 minutes of football I've seen at Loftus Road in years!!

Hmm…extra time we could do without. However, on the bright side, next week's oppo WBA doing extra time with 10 men. And…..Covid permitting, at last a run of sky-less Saturday games.

Nice bit of penalty taking practice. Not that we get awarded many….

Happy days. Any update on Archer ?. It looked like he done his shoulder in.

Taken to hospital, hopefully only as a precaution. If he's unable to play next week we may have to borrow a keeper for the bench.
