8pm KO, Macca. Assume the ITV programme will start around 7.30pm.

Looks like there will be quite a few changes.

Certainly doesn't look the most enticing team.

When is it ever?
I'm not enthused at all with this manager, his selection or his approach.

I'll be watching purely to check on Pope and any other former or future clarets that may play.

Probably the only thing more painful than watching Burnley at the moment. :lol:

I'll watch the first 10, is Bale playing?

Bale is injured. Not sure he's even training for Spurs yet.

Will be watching the Irish game in Slovakia .
Not sure how this will pan out but when it comes to making a balls of it nobody does it better than we do .

0-0 go's to pens both side miss 11 each and the Irish win it on the toss of a coin .

I’ve only just come out of the England induced coma, caused by their last 2 games, but if Nick Pope starts I’ll have to watch!

Great if he does but I think I'd rather be on the bench than in goal behind Maguire and Gomez. A real hiding to nothing.

Could be a chance to throw a few world class saves into his performance due to their defending.

Listening to Southgate last night, I would think Pope will start and Henderson will come on for the second half. He's still in the Pickford supporters camp!

Having given up watching both the Iceland and Denmark games. Half time and 20 minutes accordingly. We were that bad. I can't see myself tuning in.

Four current or ex clarets in that lineup ... I never thought I’d see that.

Lots of Burnley connections in tonights starting line up, and dont forget Harvey Barnes who was born in Burnley General Hospital is on the bench.

Got to love his honesty though. He certainly makes for good TV and it's not just totally predictable stuff from the pundits.

I think was the game starts we'll see Keane at the back with Gomez and Coady pushed further forward in a DM position behind Philips and Winks.

The game is on in the other room and every time I'm about to go through and sit down, it's bloody adverts.

10 minutes until KO... time for another 3 lots of the buggers yet.

If we play like we did in the last two games we'll be lucky to get nil.

From that squad choice you criticise the singing as embarrassing?
