Re: Dyche and Subs

Cork and Vydra were superb. They both changed the game. Cork was the difference we have missed in midfield. Hopefully Dyche has seen that making subs before the 87th minute can work and can win a a game.

Re: Predictions vs Villa

If we give grealish the freedom we have him last season then I struggle to see us getting anything. If we can play like we know we can then we can get something. It isn’t often we have 3 good games on the bouns though so I am going for a loss. 3-1 maybe. Hope I am wrong.
