Re: Pool vs The Clarets

Lets hope they've had the confidence boost/kick up the arse to getting them playing like we all know they can. This has to be their last chance before the other 2 get a crack. It must be so deflating for Vydra and Jrod

Re: Toothless

If Dyche doesn’t fancy Vydra and Jay isn’t fit then he needs to change the formation. Them two clowns up front aren’t up to it as a pairing at the moment. Just play one of them up top and put another body in midfield to allow the wingers a bit more freedom. They are scared to death to go forward in...
