Burnley sat behind the ball and made life difficult. We played well first half. Other than Randolph''s save I don't remember them hitting target. Winning builds confidence. I saw signs of that in the way moved the ball at times. We move on to Hull and look for another 3 points.

Burnley showed no attacking intent until they went behind and that, added to the inevitable nerves factor and helped by some unbelievably weak refereeing, ensured that creativity would go out of the window. Plus of course Carroll was in from the start which inevitably means hoofball.
Still 3 points is 3 points. They count the same whatever the quality of the match. Hopefully the nerves will settle a bit and we see an improved performance on Saturday.
I think that until we get a "footballing" centre forward (or Sakho back) that's the way it's going to be so I think people had best start getting used to it .
And as promising as young Fletcher's future might seem , he is a junior version of AC .
I beg to differ good sir. From the little I've seen of Fletcher he is comfortable with the ball at his feet and a hell of a lot more mobile than Carroll. I've always considered Carroll a very good player in the air but extremely limited in other aspects of the game.
Completely agree with you re Sakho.
Have to agree, i thought Fletcher was very versatile against Arsenal. Andy looks like one of them Boxing Kangeroos you see on youtube that gets right up the nose of defenders and can dig a goal out from anywhere in that box. He will never beat a defender for speed 1 on 1. Would have been ideal for England in Euro's when they needed a kangeroo in that box kicking and jumping all over the opposition
Come On You Irons!!!!!!!!!!
