This game will be like watching grass grow. In fact I might do that instead.

Given the fact that Randolph nearly punched one in his own net against Stockport - we have zero chance of keeping a clean sheet against these 1980's throwbacks.

With Burnley at better than 3/1 with the bookies that's where the value is in this one.

Hope to be wrong and have lost a fortune this season already with my pessimistic expectations!!!

I think pessimism comes with the territory. I have been pleasantly surprised with our return in a few games this season and, like you, am expecting a war of attrition on Saturday. With the promise of more of the same against West Brom tbh.

If I was offered 0-0 against Burnley I would take it.

If we go 4 at back they will target him for sure.

532 defending, 352 attacking.

Fab

Balbuena
Ogbonna
Cresswell

Coufal
Soucek
Rice
Fornals
Johnson

Bowen
Antonio
We just don't have enough creativity, or pace, in the side to trouble the bus parkers.
This I believe is our biggest issue, along with not having the striker and left back or left sided midfielder Moyes needs for us to be a good challenge on a Europa spot.
COYI!!!

0-0 it's the whisky talking
1-0 it's industrial drain cleaner
2-0 it's probably the voices in his head telling him what to say. ;)

Nothing wrong with drain cleaner, although I prefer turpentine with a dash of soda.
Love a cup of Rosey I do.

Caustic Soda?

You really should try distilled shoe polish , it will take all your problems away and more than likely your life .
