    Nip and tuck 1st half a battle is on the cards here at Oakwell some more goals to come in this game as the 2nd half approaches. All in all things running smoothly so far.

    Barnsley are heading to Wembley and they have Hammill to thank who was their major driving force to turn the game around for them.

    Back to the drawing board for Derby and celebrations for Barnsley as they booked themselves another trip to Wembley.

    It finishes Barnsley 3 Derby 2 at Oakwell.

    Not the end of the world. Key players rested. Thorne survives, kid makes his debut we had plenty of shots and most of them on target.

    Would have been nice to win but would not imagine that Rowett is throwing hot tea around the dressing room.

    Anyway Wembley might be now out of the equation but got Las Palmas to look forward to next week so that eases things a little.

    Onwards and upwards.....

    Disagree, it was a winnable game, wtf is the point of cup competitions if teams like us treat them with contempt? Yes we need to give players game time but wholesale changes like that? Surely forming a winning habit is worth it?

    Rowett could of used the side we played on Friday night but instead he opted to experiment with his squad and excess the strengths of other players within the squad but unfortunately they got found out on this occasion and has cost us a trip to Wembley but on the other hand he now knows which is his best side and which side needs strengthening more to compete with the 1st team.

    This game also has shown that we definitely can't keep consistent and that is something that Rowett needs to go and work on in the drawing board to get both of his 1st team and 2nd team working to drag out results on a more consistent basis.

    It's a debate/argument that raises its head whenever we play or moreover lose a cup game when fielding a weakened side.

    Agree that a winning mentality is a good thing, few would argue with that.

    At the beginning of the season I expect us to be challenging for promotion but don't really give two ****s about a second rate cup competition sponsored by a Thai energy drink.

    A win would have seen us at Wembley granted, but against a second string Spurs side also not bothered about the competition. Nobody really takes this cup seriously anymore and most see it as a chance to field fringe players and those coming back from injury.

    With the comings (or not so) and (late) goings in the transfer window our squad, particularly midfield is left looking a little thin in experienced quality.

    It might not be to every ones preference but I won't wake bitter about defeat tonight, well certainly not like I would had we lost there in the league.

    So we're off to Wember-lee, again!.
    I agree actually that whether we as fans all look at the Champship as being more important than the Lg cup, surely you want the manager/coach to play the best side everytime, if its possible.
    Anyway heres the highlights, enjoy them and we have them on Vhs and betamax lol.

    Thats what happens when you play toilet defenders like shackrack and unfit injury players like thorne

    Not bothered about the cup anyway,, we created a lot of chances with our rabble 2nd string which is pleasing though.

    What exactly is a toilet defender DC, is it a player who stands outside the bogs and refuses to let anybody in who looked dodgy ?.

    Totally agree with Manx and let's face it, a trip to Wembley in such circumstances - when it's just Spurs' temporary home - doesn't really count.
    Rowett could hardly win last night. He'd have been crucified if the likes of Huddleston and Vydra had played last night and subsequently not been available on Saturday and now he's criticised for having a look at the 'seconds'.
    The only teams who really take this Cup seriously are those who think they can win it and use it as a route into Europe. We aren't one of those and while it would have been nice to win, we didn't and there's more important things to come, so let's move on.

    P.S. In a way it actually reminds me of the importance of having 'reserves' and being able to provide games against 'meaningful' opposition. Used to like hearing about prospects coming through the reserves and 'stars' returning via that route after injury. It acted as an 'in between' stage that doesn't really seem to exist anymore.

    I hope the petals that were rested last night put in a good performance on Saturday. We need them to be all-firing to secure our mid-table finish that we must concentrate on.

    I actually see it more as giving some others a chance rather than resting players, it's not like we've got a Champions League programme to squeeze in. Good chance for Rowett to get a look at the likes of Bennett, Thorne, Anya and give them the chance to prove themselves. Also to assess the fitness of those coming back. Sadly, I think none of them gave cause to worry the current starting XI.

    Rowett made a huge risk in making 11 changes on the night in a game where Wembley was at stake and a treat for the fans to look forward to but it's these kind of drastic risk taking moves, that can either cost you or win you championships and on this occasion it cost us and Rowett will have to be more aware in his decision makings in the future if we are to keep consistency and pull out good results.

    It's probably better to change the whole team, as it doesn't affect the flow of the first team as much as bringing in 4 or 5 players.

    As far as the first team are concerned, they've had a midweek off rather than some of them playing with some other players, which would have been more disruptive.

    I agree with this assessment. On paper it was a pretty decent team we put out. Only thing worrying was our weakness down the left side of our defence. Listening to the commentary it seems we had our chances to have put the game to bed before they scored out of the blue.

    The starting 11 last night could easily have won last night against Barnsley but unfortunately due to poor decision making and lapse of defending we lost the lead twice and let Barnsley into the game too easily and let them control the game.

    Rowett may of wanted to rest his big players for this game has we haven't got many midfielders to cover the squad so he wanted to take extra precaution in case there was any injuries and have a potential crisis on our hands. But you can say why we have not managed to sort in bringing in more midfield cover to avoid this potential situation from happening and that is the million pound question that needs to be addressed that we have been seeking all summer long for.
