I'd play Morata, he looks ridiculously rusty since coming back from his injury.

I'd also play Bakayoko, he also looks unfit to me, some may argue he needs a rest but I think he needs the opposite and more game time to get him up to speed and fully fit.

Also I'd like us to play a back four, maybe with a diamond in midfield, we seem to have lost any sort of plan B and I think it should be considered more in the future.

Some seem to be writing this off, personally with morale as low as it is and the obvious lack of confidence I'd like to see us go at them and give it a real go.

Cabellero

Zappacosta -Rudiger-Christensen-Azpi

Ampadu

Bakayoko-Willian

Musonda

Bastshuayi-Morata

I will add, I would play more youth if we had any left. None of what we have is anywhere near the required level.

I'm not disagreeing with you, but I wonder how we find out who's 'near the required level' if we never play them, even in games like this?

Suppose this one is slightly better?

Caballero

Rudiger Cahill Clarke-Salter

Zappacosta Ampadu Christensen Kenedy

Willian Batshuayi Musonda

Quite a lot better.  I do think Clarke-Salter is probably nearer to being Championship ready than most of the others, so I'd be happy to pick him so long as zappa, Rudiger and Christensen all get starts.  And Kenedy is also at that level (and unlikely to exceed it), but makes enough effort to hold his end up in a make-shift team.

Yes.  All the youth likely to make the grade has been sent away to prove themselves.    There is over a dozen players that would be useful, including 5 PL starters. 
The most exciting ones still here (IMO) are Ampadu and Sterling. Both are seventeen (Ampadu's birthday was a month  ago, Sterling turns 18 tomorrow - party postponed one hopes).

Both got minute against Forest, but we had the game well and truly won by then.  Both though are for the future, not this season.

Send  the best ones on loan?  Just an idea.

Not much of one judging by our success in that department so far.

Based on your assessment, or Juni's?

Actually a great one - particularly with those players we have let go because they didn't perform, but also a lot who did perform - Courtois, Christensen.
The comparison would be with those players we actually did try out in the first team - RLC, McEachran, Lukaku, Matic Mk1, Romeu, KdB, Salah.  Were they more successful.

Yeah sure. Whatever. Say it often enough and you'll probably end up convincing yourself at least.

I think you are confusing judging players with making them a success. Or just disagreeing on principle.
