Re: Ashley Barnes Is Not Good Enough For Us

He was signed in the January window to bolster our first promotion push and I bet even Dyche thought at the time it was simply a very cheap short term measure to try to ensure promotion and then we'd fairly quickly move one. But he's been absolutely brilliant and utterly embodies what SD has created...

Re: Charlie Austin

He's a more than decent PL striker when fit. But the "when fit" part is clearly the issue. If they were confident he'd get fit and stay fit, surely Southampton would no way be looking to let him go. And as said, he's not really an upgrade on the 2 we have starting. We need a really good ba...

Re: Norwich vs Sheff Weds

Worked out okay for us though, didn't it?

Re: Norwich vs Sheff Weds

Norwich will need to splash a shed load of cash on what is always the most important area for newly promoted teams. Defence.
