I am pretty certain no club would lend BFC a striker for two seasons that was capable of scoring 13 goals in just over half a season

We are not flushed with cash-do we need to be this charitable ??
And if Wells was capable of doing that in the Premier League then we wouldn’t have loaned him out.

Beating Arsenal is the one thing that Dyche hasn’t achieved; yet.
I was thinking that, but strictly speaking there’s one other Premier League team he’s never beaten. It’s Sheffield United, although we have only played them once under Dyche.

Re: Utd forum post

The first goal may be what they expected from us but it doesn’t detract from what a good goal it was. The Guardian live commentary described Westwood of ‘wellying the free kick forward’ but it’s a great precision free kick, exactly where he wanted it to go. Then header won and great finish.
