Re: Barnes

Hopefully last night can be the catalyst for Barnes to go on one of his runs. He has tended to be quite a streaky striker for us historically, so it wouldn't surprise me.

I thought he was excellent last night against Matip and Fabinho, they really struggled with his 'tricks'.

Re: Table

In the next round of fixtures WBA play City, so you'd expect a City win, and Sheff Utd play away at Man Utd, so you'd expect a Man Utd win, leaving Fulham v Brighton as the most interesting fixture. So, do we want a fulham win, to keep Brighton down there and interested, or do we want a Brighton wi...

Nick Pope, Ben Mee, James Tarkowski

Firstly not taking anything away from our full backs who were also outstanding to a man, but, I think what we have all thought for a while needs saying once more.

The best unit of goalkeeper and two centre backs in the entire Premier League.

Re: January Transfer Window Discussion - Rumours and Links welcome

We need a new option up front - and someone proven yet affordable. You would struggle to find a better fit than Josh King, who is also rapid which is something we hugely lack. I think that would be a top signing. If we were able to flog Vydra this month and bring in King, that’s a significant upgrad...

Re: January Transfer Window Discussion - Rumours and Links welcome

Lingard gets stick for his assists/goals over the last two seasons but I would say it's probably inarguable that he would be a vast improvement on the options we have in the attacking midfield/right wing areas. If the player is willing to go on loan to a club such as Sheffield United or Burnley, tha...

Re: A thought for Sunday...dropping Barnes

The forward line have been poor to a man this season. Rodriguez and Vydra haven’t scored in the league for months, and have been totally ineffective in most of their appearances as well. I fully agree that Barnes and Wood have been poor, particularly of late. The reality is Dyche is probably looking...

Re: Vydra

If Dyche doesn’t rate him (and I think it’s fairly clear he doesn’t), then it’s best for all parties he goes this window.

We absolutely need a centre forward in to replace him, and not some Nahki Wells style clear backup/pointless signing but someone to really put pressure on Wood and Barnes.

So from what I have gleaned, Quaison is generally deployed in either a number 10 role or off either flank as opposed to up front.
