Bits n Pieces!

* The Man City cup game is on ESPN this Tuesday morning 6am Brisbane time. Gotta love all this coverage we've had lately.

* We appear to have a massive fixture pile up. Portsmouth tomorrow coupled with the cup tie means we have 2 games in 3 days straight after going 120 mins against Bolton this week. This suggests to me Pardew will again ring the changes for the visit of Portsmouth at Upton Park this weekend and rest a few legs before the cup game.

I would give Pardew one message - do NOT mess with the defence. Our biggest downfall vs Bolton in the league last week was not keeping the defensive partnership of Gabbidon and Ferdinand that has been so successful this season. Of course playing Ferdinand out of position did nothing but hinder our midfield also. So FFS Pardew - leave the defence alone! In fact I would just leave out Harewood, Ashton & Yossi and bring all 3 on at half time or shortly after.
