Re: Harry Wilson

My money is on Pieters starting tomorrow ahead of Stephens. Dyche very rarely puts new players straight into a team, which I agree with. We base our defence on being organised and working as a team and it must take a few training sessions to pick that up.

The refs just need to grow some balls! The premier league refs are so soft and just let the players do anything. The best ref of the season was the at home to Olypiakos. He stood for no sh*t! Even giving a foul throw for pinching too many yards. Has a premier league ref ever done that?
