Apart from Briggs I like this line up a lot. Hats off to Jol for dropping Schwarzer.

He must not have dropped him, he's not on the bench. Injured?

We never have the same team 2 times in a row. Its a different looking team ill give him that

Hopefully will give the former regulars a kick up the arse. Stockdales been due a start for a long time.

thats part of the problem with Jol. Our team is so unsettled in some cases. Frei for me is not a 90min player yet and should be coming on around 60-65 min to take on tired defences.

Its a potentially really exciting team, but also a potentially implode-able team. Should be a good game anyway!

I like the idea of Karagounis and Sidders.

I am absolutely delighted with the start-up. We needed changes. I would have kept JAR though...

I think it's right to rotate so long as the core of the team is there. Kacaniklic had a poor game so Frei keeps him on his toes, Hughes had struggled so Senderos came in, who in turn was poor so he drops out. Riise has been long due a demotion but I think Jol like me lacked faith in Briggs. Now I guess he's thought Riise's head isn't straight, so may as well play Briggs.

So if the midfield fails we can bring on, er, Richardson.  If I was Kasami I would be wanting out in Jan. He was starting in Serie A before he came to us.

VERY defensive bench. Rodallega and maybe Richardson the only attack minded players. Seems we are playing youngsters today to match up with Swansea's young and pacey side

Very happy with this line-up, seems that Jol has finally seen some sense and dropped positions where it was needed

Kasami should have been on the bench. There is no need to have both Senderos & Baird.

Lets see how the starting 11 do eh! I cant see it being any worse than the previous few games. W've been woeful and hopefully Jol is assessing all options before the window to see which positions we are in dire need of.

Baird is a different player when Ruiz is around, sometimes is the players you play with
