Re: Atmosphere tonight

Definitely down to the brand of football IMO, which is pretty dull most of the time (but clearly extremely effective). Fans need excitement in the game which in turn can really turn up the volume. Dyche doesn't produce an attacking team as Coyle did in that great season. The likes of Blake, Elliot a...

Re: Time to drop Brady?

Can't really see how we can drop him as we simply don't have a replacement. I thought he was poor tonight. His passing and crossing was very very poor when in very good positions in the final third, I thought this was particularly the case in the first half. I just wish he would drill it low and har...

Re: Wood maybe for Monday. Hope for Vokes.

Hopefully Wood will be fit and ready to play against Newcastle. A definite plus if so. I get the impression that Barnes is told to go down under a challenge in order to win a set piece for Brady. This reminds me of when Shearer played for England. He went down on every occasion when a ball was play...
