At the moment the club is a shambles, we would struggle to recruit anyone with any pedigree. The current squad are Dyche men with many ooc at the end of the season, they won't bust a gut for a rookie
Are they busting a gut for SD, then?

Re: Does anyone actually enjoy watching us play?

So many factors which make watching us, or the PL in general, less attractive.
VAR,

empty stadia,

Even though it's Wood's best feature, I wouldn't go as far as saying reliable. He has missed some right sitters for us.

I think he did quite well in a sort of "10" role, but that was in the championship.
In reality he's the 4th best finisher we have. Also our style probably suits him less than the 3 ahead of him
