Re: Everyone needs to calm down

These last two games really could come back to bite us. If Fulham beat Sheff U tonight, they're 6 points behind us. They have Palace next week while we go to Spurs. Combine that with 18(?) goals all season and I can certainly see cause for concern at least I think Brighton and, especially, Newcastl...

Re: Dyche sending a message?

Good points. The only thing I would argue with is the assumption by many that if we got relegated we would by default enter into financial chaos. Yes we would have to sell players but that would be as much about some thinking they are too good for Championship football despite, as I have said for y...

Unfortunately that is the attitude that is ruining football. I don't blame anyone, just the Premier League which will, if left to its own devices, destroy football. I couldn’t agree more.

Until we have enough points to put us beyond any chance of relegation then I won’t be taking anything for granted. Personally I couldn’t give a dead ratsass about the cups, they are irrelevant to us. You have your opinion and I have mine, but I think mine is closer to the club’s philosophy than yours.
