That's so weird I just saw this last night too! The fans are so far back! I guess it was a cricket pitch with some temporary seating closer to the football pitch. Who would attend a match like that back then? That surely isn't 70 thousand northerners? Burnley took in excess of 20,000 supporters.

Creativity is a problem to an extent, although it’s been better recently.

Bit of an overreaction re Wood. Once he gets a couple he...

Phil Jones is a tough on as it depends what sort of player he is now. I get the feeling that if we do sign him, there will be a lot of upset Clarets, who then change their mind after he's played a few games.
