Re: When will we know about going back on the turf?

Worrying times for football I think, even at our level. The longer it goes on behind closed doors I think more and more people will get out of the habit of going, or realise they don't actually miss it that much, or start going to watch their local non league team instead.

Hard to see how Delofeu would fit in under Dyche. I may be wrong but he's always come across as a bit of a fancy Dan who plays when he feels like it. The Deeney link is a bit more realistic unfortunately.

Trouble is, Guardiola can't spot a good defender.

Defending is a lot easier though if you sit deep with 8 men behind the ball. I'd wager if you put Tarkowski into Citys defence he wouldn't look the same commanding figure he does playing for us.
