Absolutely nothing to lose here, and everything to gain. Massively looking forward to this, my first visit to their swanky stadium, and I genuinely think we have a chance of getting something here, and continue to nurture the feelgood feeling after our win on Friday night!

Not so sure Farke will tinker too much, back 5 picks itself as not sure if Zimmerman will be fit, and Hanley and Godfrey did well last time out anyway.

Possibly see Vrancic? Would not be surprised to see Drimic start, Pukki really just does not look on it right now.

I’m looking forward to this too. I’m trying to raise my ground count and White Hart Lane doesn’t count any more so will be good to see the new stadium. Agree on Drmic, I think Pukki needs a rest and we will probably see a few other changes with the main players on the bench.

Alex Tettey and Teemu Pukki are both doubts as they didn't train due to illness. Christoph Zimmermann is still not able to train. He's not available tomorrow. Onel Hernandez and Sam Byram are still out. Timm Klose is still working on his rehab.

DF confirms no Fahrmann available either for #thfc. Ditto for this weekend. 'Personal reasons' says the #ncfc chief

He goes on to say Zimmerman may need to see a specialist, so not sounding like he is going to be available any time soon.

think you're probably pretty close there, wouldn't be surprised to see Krul remain in goal at this stage though, also could see Steips playing

Tricky one for Farke to call, can be a bit wanky just discarding players that got you to where you are in a cup. I actually seem to remember McGovern playing okay, last time out. Apart from the defenders kept passing back to his left, obviously forgetting he is right footed!

I'd like to see Drmic start mostly because I'm curious to see what he can do with more than ten minutes off the bench. Our approach play is totally built around Pukki's movement and it would be interesting to see how we switch it up to bring Drmic into the game.

Anyone who hasn't got tickets can watch on the Beeb tonight. Red button.

unlike most people I don't think McGovern is even close to as bad as he's made out to be, just feel this is the stage in the competition where we might start to think about having a go at it

Yaaaaaaawn. That went well! Gamewise, not much to talk about apart from the bit at the end. Stiepermann and Vrancic both showed really why they aren't getting picked regularly, Cantwell and Emi superb, Drmic was a good shout over Pukki, who has looked off it in last few weeks.

But it all has to be about Timmy Krul, what a machine, what shithousery, and what a run the length of the pitch to celebrate with the fans! I hope the players get some good rest before Saturday as they were absolutely ballbagged by the end, Cantwell virtually carried off.

The stadium is fantastic, the stand at the opposite end to us is immense. Good facilities too, got served beers etc pretty quickly. Greater Anglia thankfully held the last train for us, and got back to the Fine City just after 2am!

Great pics Morty, that's one helluva stadium. Krul must be POS and not just for last night. What a great fighting performance. Hats off to Greater Anglia for you all. Hope there were no injuries just cramp! OTBC.

I had one of those” if it can happen, it will “ nights. Decided to go cabbage for the first time in a number of years thinking it would be best for convenience. Arrived in north London at 4.15 ! After the match walked straight into a few people trading punches, then the M11 was blocked, then the coach broke down followed by the A11 being closed at Thetford. Back at Carra Rud at 3.26 :D
For a modern stadium i thought it is pretty good, going somewhere like Tottenham makes you realise how lucky we are to live in Norfolk doesn’t it ?

Bloody hell! Haha I remember saying that to my kids as we were on the coach driving to Crystal Palace, "Kids, this is why we live where we live".

London is a shit hole.
