    If we don't win convincingly tonight, lets hope the welsh FA show some balls, and get rid of Giggs!

    SLOVAKIA v WALES - Match Thread

    Kick of: 19:45
    Location: Stadión Antona Malatinského / Slovakia
    TV coverage: Sky Sports and S4C

    Pre-match news:

    BBC -
    Wales boss Ryan Giggs does not believe the visit to Slovakia is a must-win match for his side as they look to play catch-up in Euro 2020 qualifying. Wales are in fourth place in Group E, trailing leaders Croatia, Slovakia and Hungary with four qualifiers left.

    Wales have suffered a blow with the news that Juventus midfielder Aaron Ramsey again misses out through injury. Derby County midfielder Tom Lawrence, who is in court to face drink-driving charges two days after Wales play Croatia on Sunday, has also been nursing an injury and he missed training on Monday.

    Wales are definitely without defender Chris Mepham, but in-form captain Ashley Williams looks set for a recall after impressing since joining Bristol City on a free transfer.

    I would have played Ashley Williams tonight. That’s a very inexperienced centre back pairing. Also surprised Moore starts ahead of Wilson. I would take a draw tonight.

    I can see the logic in starting Moore for his presence up front, although Roberts could have been another option. It's always a dilemma about where to play Bale, and he is most effective cutting in from the right.

    It doesn’t make sense when Wilson is scoring goals at a higher level. Lose tonight and we are done.

    That centre back pairing is very inexperienced- I would have played Davies in the centre. Does Moore offer anything more than Vokes?

    Playing Bale, James & Wilson together up top lacks cohesion. I'd rather go for Matondo in that situation and blitz them with pace.

    Bale as striker and Wilson and James down the flanks....it didn’t work in our last match admittedly but if we are going to play a traditional centre forward I would have preferred Vokes to Moore.

    I can also see the logic in a big man with 3 behind, Wilson's not a bad option to bring on I suppose. Harsh on Vokes though

    Re: SLOVAKIA v WALES - Match Thread

    Moore or Vokes is a gamble. Both have little form so why play either?

    I've not got a good feeling about tonight, happy to be proved wrong but I don't think it'll be easy watching either way.

    Ampadu's earlier world class block is looking even more important now.

    Why does Jonnie Williams wanna do everything at 200 mph (kilometres for our younger viewers)

    Absolutely. 2 tackles, 2 yellow cards, and hasn't put one of their players in yet. Ampadu was fouled before he made that tackle but the ref let it go...

    Anyway, much better than recent performances, but we don't have a left back it seems. They are ripping us to pieces down our left, and they will take advantage at some point surely
