Re: Dyche and Subs

Been saying it all season. We play much better football with cork on the pitch, his positioning and passing is such high quality. The team literally shifted 15 yards further up pitch just because of his inclusion. He is levels above Brownhill.

I don’t know how people are comparing Jimmy Dunne to Collins in terms of transfer fee.

At 19 Dunne was playing national league football. Plus Dunne only has 6 months on his contract.

Collins has played his full career at championship level and has five years left on his contract.
