Re: ARTICLE: Guðmundsson ruled out as Wood returns

I think Vydra will start but the pressure is on now for him and JR. Wood is not a bench warmer and any weakness in either's game may see them off for Wood. It is a rather pleasant problem to have. To have a 10 goal PL striker sat on your bench because we have 'other options' is a pretty wonderful p...

Dyche is an outstanding manager, and whilst we were putting in some turgid displays it was crazy to see threads calling for him to go (and they did happen, and have done every other time we have had a poor run).
