Re: REPORT: Lousy day at the London Stadium

But it might help your case if he was ripping things up elsewhere, yet currently he is a dead loss for both Newcastle (who look like relegation candidates) and ROI.

You are missing the real answer which is in actual fact, we require better players than we already have and Hendrick.

I do think of late we are having problems in the midfield areas too. The quality of delivery in to the box hasn't been good enough. Compounded by the fact that when good chances do arrive, they are being missed. The cup game of course being an eye opener as to how out of form our current strikers ar...

Re: Burnley v Manchester United - Match Thread

Wood, and to a lesser extent Barnes, are becoming a big problem for Dyche. There was absolutely no outlet second half with those two on the field and we desperately need more pace and invention in that area.

Is it terminal for Wood? No, I don't think so, but he's a player desperately out of form.
