Looks like Hall picked up an injury right before the break.

Edit - ok he's up and walking off so maybe not.

Us playing until penalties four days ago and them having a week and half off to rest has showed so far. So has us having no recognised centre backs playing.

I hope they recover quick because they play Chelsea in the semi on Sunday at WHL

Missed tonight’s game, but wonder what part fatigue played. No idea what Fulham’s schedule has been like, but it’s been punishing for our kids. Ten games since the beginning of April, with the last two before today going to extra time. And then they go again on Sunday.

Fulham played last Monday (6th May) and then Friday 26th April whereas Spurs have played 26th and 29th April, plus the 2nd 6th and 12th May.

Apologies if this has already been answered previously - does anyone know why Donley has dropped out of the first team matchday squads recently? From all the clips I've seen he seems to be performing even better than earlier in the season, but Moore and now Hall are now getting in over him. Moore I can understand because Werner's absence has left us needing another wide option, but Hall is a centre mid (I think?) and we have a ton of those, albeit with varying skill sets.

From what I've seen Donley seems the most obviously first-team ready of the kids that have come into the squad this season, so it's odd that he has dropped down the pecking order in favour of incredibly talented but younger and less developed players.

Our previous two games being 120 minutes as well. We also had no Dorrington, who was a big miss. It's no wonder they're knackered.

Hopefully they are okay for Sunday, anyone know if Dorrington misses that as well?

Does anyone knowledgeable in this thread know if there are any capable youth options to replace Ben Davies? Eg the modern style CB/FB hybrid like we see much more often nowadays with VDV, Kiwior, Gvardiol, Ake?

Ideally we need to clone Van de Ven to fill a couple of positions for us in multiple comps next season.
