I think Saturday. Ramsey deserves to keep his place then take him out for the Wolves game.

Shouldn't we wait to see how he does first?

Yeah, after his 4 goal first half salvo on Wednesday, Dean can bring him off on the hour. He'll be fine for Saturday too.

You're right, I'd be reluctant to drop him if he puts in a close to MOTM performance, BUT he's still only 19, playing in possibly the most physical position on the pitch, and Wolves would potentially be his third start in 7 days.  That feels like a lot to put on a player who has just broken through, especially when we actually have a bit of competition in that position for a change.  I'm happy to see a bit of rotation in midfield, as long as the effort stays the same.

I bet you it would still be Trez for Bert on 70 minutes! ;)

Why the heck did Ramsey play for the U23s today if we have a game on Wednesday?  I don't understand that at all.

The England team just posted a summary of the qualifying campaign for the Euros, and it's quite interesting how involved Barkley was just 2 or 3 years ago.  Starts, assists, goals. It would be great if he could get some international form going for the remainder of the season, esp as it's unlikely we'll see Jack for another couple of weeks.

He continues to be poor. Might as well send him back to Chelsea, and use the time developing the players who we're going to have next season.

Not his fault tonight, but was not the player to solve the problems in attack.

No criticism of him tonight at all. Tried to find some lines to pick in-between the team competition of who could pump the worst ball into the box.

We had more urgency with him and Davis on the pitch.
