Re: If we have to sell...

None of Pope,Tarks or McNeil are easily replaced as each bring something integral to the team. But if someone comes and offers big money or enough to make us feel we can't turn it down then I would presume it would more than likely be McNeil. Dyche has already said that McNeil will move on/up.

Re: Wood Must Start V Liverpool

Think Dyche will start with the same 11 as against West Ham. And probably bring Wood on in the second half, possibly also JBG. Whatever, we're unlikely to get much from the game albeit a point would set us nicely for the Wolves game at home. A point at Anfield and a win against Wolves would put us i...
