Re: Sport.cz - Vydra frustrated at strange excuses from Dyche

I think Dyche may well be forced into giving Vydra a start or certainly much more time on the pitch. Especially if both Barnes and Wood don't do much against Wolves. If one of them scores and/or both play reasonably well and we get the three points then Dyche will start with them against Bournemouth...

Re: Robbie brady

Brady hasn't really been able to do much since returning from his injury and has looked tentative at best. Almost frightened at times. He can play (as he has shown in the past) but he's lacking confidence and certainly not ready to start ahead of McNeil or JBG. He needs game time but at present the ...
