Lack of clean sheets in the home games is a problem.

Todays result makes last weeks draw against a poor southampton look a bad result.

Dyche will get back to basics again, solidifying the team.. Expect to roll out a few ugly 1-0 wins.. Boring.. But I bet you don't care.

I think Fortress Turf Moor is a bit of a fallacy recently, we got more points away last season. Not that it matters where the points come from although I didn't like being the joke away team the season before last. Personally I think our style is more suited to playing away just now. I'm not sure why we play like an away team at home but I'm sure Dyche has his reasons.

Think we seem to want to play with a bit more possession of the ball, but we don't necessarily have the cutting edge? First half we looked threatening going forward but never capitalised on it, and were made to pay for it in a very poor second half. We had a similar situation last season after Christmas. We need our strikers to start bagging some goals, get the confidence up

Not won our opening home fixture since we beat Bolton 2-0 in 2012. Very surprised by that.

I think the disappointing start will focus the minds of our players. Possibly better to start this way rather than a couple of wins and get all cocky and over confident.

It’s also reduced the fan’s expectations to a realistic level.
