Morning, Martinez has only just returned from his loan spell in Spain,
I can see many going the same way as Burke and even less making the bench unless there is a major injury crisis, I don't believe it`s because they don't have the ability, it`s about the Old Bloke wanting his own brought in as we have already seen.
Rice ? Bench at best.

Afternoon, only a fool would try to second guess the Old Bloke,
but will Sanchez survive his wrath, Balbuena`s tackle v Bournemouth ( term used very loosely) aside, those whom have not performed have mostly been scapegoated and banished, Rice, Fredericks, Zabaleta, Noble, Ogbonna, Antonio.
You cannot tell me this cutthroat attitude is good for confidence or moral, he clearly doesn't know his best starting 11 because no one has got to grips with the system he is trying to play, and neither do I.
I certainly am not confident going into our next 3 fixtures, perhaps I should go on a break for a few days to properly assess our situation

Are we getting into Alladyce country, defend properly and counter attack, respect the point ?
Is that such a bad option against a bogey team ?
Granted its not what anyone of us wants to see, but I fear the Old Bloke may have overestimated us, tried to get us running when we were barely walking as a squad, poor poor pre season also another factor.

Morning, why is everyone getting alarmed, why hasn't anyone seen this coming ?
There is no way on earth the Old Bloke is going to risk playing Academy graduates, he has brought in who he wants, a couple totally unknown to us, success is expected, and I`m not talking winning anything, I`m pretty damn sure our board expects nothing less than Europa League next season for their outlay of cash, so, we will are now in a position where our graduates are now beginning to access their position within our set up regardless of their talent, Burke didnt want to go, but to further his own career and the expected book balancing act left him with little choice.
Forward thinking ambitious clubs will be watching our situation with interest.
