Re: Formation change needed

I think we're missing Taylor and hopefully he'll be back soon but do agree that a formation change might also help. Especially against Liverpool and possibly also against Villa and Chelsea. We've nothing to lose trying a formation change and we can always revert back to 442 if need be. ____________...

Re: January Transfer Window Discussion - Rumours and Links welcome

Dyche seems happy with our current (near fully fit) squad. The crunch time comes when Pace asks Dyche what is needed for us to keep our PL status but evolve into a more attacking/creative/entertaining team (i.e. a more ‘marketable’ product). Dyche might say to Pace ‘It can be done but it’s a high ri...

Re: Saturday afternoon local football league. Who did you play for?

Anyone remember playing Whitewell Bottom? They had one player who played with his glasses on (and a chunky elasticated band to hold them on 🙂) and another player with only one arm. Both were very good players by the way.
