Re: Chris Wood - Offside

Yes offside a lot. Dyche obviously tells him to play on the shoulder of the last man and put doubt in the defenders mind. Used the same tactic with Gray who was also always offside. Some of them are totally unnecessary though and it is extremely frustrating.

Re: This football

Football was awful to watch today. Gave the ball away so many times. Basic silly errors and just could not keep the ball.

Re: ARTICLE: The first five minutes of that second half was unacceptable

Don't blame Dyche for the starting line up. We were playing well and should have put the game to bed. What frustrates me about Dyche is his inability to effectively change things when things go wrong. His team's never seem to know how to break teams down when we go behind.
