    Reasons to have England friendly: it's easy to organise, it reduces travel when we already have two away games it's a test for our players and gives a chance for closer look at how Southgate operates.

    Reasons not to have England friendly: there are only three positives to this decision and countless potential negatives... every negative that could have happened has in fact happened.

    What is it with Wales and feckin' themselves over with too many England friendlies? Rugby and now football. Giggs picking such a small squad and leaving out Doidge and Chester suddenly looks a poor decision. Let's hope the international window ends finally produces a positive note.

    Brooks also out. Moore suspended. Going to be a slog tomorrow night.

    Sounds like another bore draw. This could benefit Finland the most.

    Think that was always going to be the deal, no way he was going to play 2 games back to back. Maybe Giggs thought Ireland was the best chance.

    I hope we play in Red shirts, that mishmash they wore in Ireland was horrible

    Apparently to do with colour blindness! Agree was an awful combination of kits.

    Can see it being a hostile atmosphere even with that meagre crowd.
    Not holding out much hope for this one tbh and I will be surprised if our recent shots on target average will alter significantly.

    At least Hennessy is on form.

    I was implying that Giggs will almost certainly set up camp on our own 18 yard box.
    Hennessy may well get MOM even if we lose!
    Hop I'm wrong though eh

    Best form of defence, is, ATTACK

    Go for the jugular

    I think injuries dictate a change of tack here.
    Get men behind the ball and break quickly, don't press too high up the pitch to draw them out a bit and play more directly.

    Not how we want to play in the longer term, but needs must.

    Hard to think of a worse situation for Wales than missing almost the entire frontline, playing away and coming off the back of 3 pretty awful performances (the goal against Bulgaria aside).
    Guess it's a chance for the younger team members and some support players to step up but it's going to be a massive ask to make anything tonight.

    Anybody have an idea on how we are going to line up for this one?

    Same back 5, maybe Morrell and Vaulkes/Levitt/Smith in midfield. Roberts up front with Williams, Wilson and James/Matondo supporting the striker.

    Other option is Ampadu in midfield with Morrell, and Cabango in defence.

    Mepham's back so it could be him & Rodon with Ampadu in midfield

    Ah, I didn't know he was fit again. I'd like to see a back three with Williams and Davies as wingbacks, but I doubt it. Probably be Ampadu in midfield which would be the sensible decision.

    Re: BULGARIA v WALES. Match thread

    My team for tonight;-

    Hennessey

    Mepham (if fit, if not Cabango)
    Rodon
    Davies

    C Roberts
    Williams

    Ampadu
    Vaulks

    Wilson
    James

    T Roberts

    Can't see Giggs going for three at the back though and I reckon Smith will start in front of Vaulks, with Jonny Williams in for Wilson.

    What is this competition about? Given that Wales have made it to the Euro finals next summer, can someone please clarify what success in this tournament brings to Wales.

    A chance to enter the 2022 world cup playoffs if we finish 3rd in our world cup qualification group and miss out on automatic playoff qualification. So winning the group would be advantageous to giving ourselves every chance of qualifying for the world cup.
