I mean, if we do rates Parrott, we shouldnt let him play without giving him platform to perform right?
Dele, Eriksen, Son, GLC, Ndombele, 2 out of them have to play. Or else Parrott would only facing our goalpost all game.

Must admit I've spent a lot of money to go and see a reserve game!
Seriously, always wanted to go to Munich and really looking forward to it.
I was offered a ticket but I knew it was going to be a reserve game and decided against it. Went for the Audi Cup. Its a fantastic stadium but you have to climb the stairs to the top. Make sure you take a picture of it illuminated from the outside after the game.

thanks for that tip, used to climbing stairs, we're on Level 5 in the new stadium, one way to get my steps in!! When I went to get my Euros, the cashier asked where I was going, she assumed I was going for the Christmas market, couldn't comprehend that I was going for the football:)

Mourinho changes the starting line up at the last second and starts our strongest team, while Bayern Munich still field their youngsters and we win 14-0

Gazzaniga
KWP - Foyth - Tanganga - Rose
Skipp
Lo Celso - Winks
Lucas - Parrott - Sessegnon
3-1 loss.

Great experience for some of these players.
Yes. As we're already through, might as well mix it up a bit and "audition " some of the youngsters. Also give GLC and Sess a good long run. Ndombele too if he is fit. Nothing to lose so an excellent opportunity to try something new.

Bayern Munich lost again yesterday to Bundesliga leaders Borussia Monchengladbach - and now sit in 7th position 7 points behind Monchengladbach. To put their current position into perspective, Bayern have won the title for the last 7 seasons !

They must win their next league games and will probably want to rest a number of players and not risk playing key players like Lewandowski. So Mourhino announcing he'll start with Parrott, Sessegnon, Walker-Peters and Skipp is probably more than welcomed by Bayern, and make it an easy decision to rest their players..

Our next weekend's game is a tricky one at Wolves who play today, but already equal on points with us. So resting most of our team that started v Burnley will certainly help - with Wolves at home to Besiktas on Thursday but having already qualified for the group stages they may also rest players.
Have they appointed anyone yet? Be a laugh if we win 2-7 !

I just realised since mourinho became our manager we have become the most dangerous attacking PL team, scoring most goals over the last 5 games under him.

1. Spurs 16 goals in 5 games.
2. Liverpool 13 goals in 5 games.
3. Leicester 12 goals in 5 games.
4. Man City 10 goals in 5 games.
5. Man United 10 goals in 5 games.
6. Wolverhampton 10 goals in 5 games.
7. Chelsea 6 goals in 5 games.

Yep, I really like this line-up.
I understand concerns of some posters here regarding what impact might the loss have on our youngsters, but at the same time we have to consider that Bayern does not have anything to play for either, and it is very unlikely they will play with their full squad. As mentioned - their situation in Bundesliga is not quite good right now.

Seeing Parrott, Skipp and Sessegnon (17, 19, 19) coming on in Burnley game was bit of an indication for me as well, that they will play in Munich.

But I would most certainly leave out Wanyama (who someone suggested to use), as he is our past. Unfortunately he will not have any further contribution to our senior side starting XI. So in game where result does not matter, I'd rather use someone from academy side. I also would not use Eriksen. If his head is not in the game and he is not giving 110% of himself, he will not be "useful help to youngsters" as some suggested - quite opposite - he would be a role model of wrong attitude.

Exited for the game for the reason of seeing some of our younger lads having a chance at highest level of club football :) !

what impact might the loss have on our youngsters
The impact on our first XI may not be so good either if on the end of another thumping.
Play the youth. It’s an enormous learning curve for them and allows an opportunity for Jose to see what he has to work with in the coming months, if there isn’t much of a transfer budget.
As long as we don’t expect the world from them and blast them if they lose they can gain valuable experience on Wednesday night.

Foyth should start in place of Davinson
Think we need a mix of experience next to inexperienced both to help the youngster and to ensure we are competitive - hence Sanchez being paired with Tanganga to start.

Am expecting both youth/inexperience and experienced on bench to come on as subs - which might include Foyth (who seems to be playing RB rather than CB recently)
