Negative again. Lots for the opposition to think about ? Try and contain them hope for nil nil at half time and if we concede game over. One dimensional.

Re: ARTICLE: FA provide written reasons for Joey Barton’s ban

I wonder if Grosicki is still gambling ? Hard to beat an addiction. I wonder if an opposing fan might grass him up similar to what has happened in this case and the Gray case. This really could open up a can of worms for other players.

Quite like the spice's team. Not sure about Westwood over Barton though. Think we need Defour to start. It also gives us options off the bench if we are chasing the game. Vokes is only good off the bench if we are trying to hold on to a lead or shore things up.
