    Reckon Silva will go if we can fluke a win tomorrow?


    Not sure any away manager could survive the embarrassment of losing at St Marys.

    Our record there is ****e, but so is yours....

    Our away results have been gash, but some of the performances have warranted better, we were proper mugged off at Brighton the other week. We’re due a change of luck tbh, and hopefully it’ll be tomorrow.

    As for Silva, dunno, hope not, as I like him and there’s no way he’s lost that dressing room, and changing a manager purely due to a run of poor form is knee jerk nads imo. I want us to stick with him, as we’ve sacked enough managers in recent years.

    Ahhhhhhhhhh, I like him too. Glad the performances warranted better results as I feel sorry for him only having £119million to spend in the summer.

    I will have you know that the Beddytare School of Mathematics is a wonderful educational establishment, highly regarded in all five corners of the globe.
    And yes, strictly you are right. Which makes it even more likely.:)

    Yeah your record down here is almost as bad as ours at yours, though we've been ****e at home for about 3 years now. Score draw wouldn't surprise me at all.

    Interesting that you feel your owed some good luck as we're definitely due some bad luck with VAR.


    On Silva I agree that you can't keep sacking managers but he hasn't really improved you for the money spent. Better off getting Howe in and giving him time imo.

    No such thing as the wrong weather only the wrong clothes.

    If you can’t beat us you may aswell just accept you’re going down with us

    Howe? Nah not for me mate.

    We really got going towards the end of last season and we were upbeat in the summer. But we lost Gueye who was instrumental in our side and one of the most underrated players in the PL imo, his replacement Gbamin got injured after one game, and we’ve struggled for balance in the midfield all season as a result. He wanted Zouma on a permanent as he was brilliant for us last season, but that didn’t happen and we didn’t get a replacement and Jags moved on, so we’re short at CB, and we bought young Kean as our striker, but at 19 he’s nowhere near ready to lead the line as a solo striker in the PL yet.

    I've not really followed the build up to this, are we expecting Cedric at LB? or Hojbjerg in a back 5?

    I'm hoping we see

    McCarthy
    Valery Bednarek ????? Cedric
    Romeu JWP Hojbjerg
    Redmond Ings Djenepo


    Not sure who my choice at CB would be.....probably Yoshida (but it definitely won't be him!)

    Why would anyone want to drop any of the defensive trio after last week?

    I don't think Howe would go to you anyway but I think you'd be extremely lucky to get him. He is due a move to team a class above your lot - and ours too! He has already rejected us once I believe haha

    He’s been linked to us a number of times, partly because he’s an Evertonian.

    You think he’d turn us down? Right oh mate.

    Because I want us to play 4 at the back and an extra attacker


    Man City away we set up to defend.

    Everton at home I want us taking the game to them

    Agree wholly with the sentiment, but that tactic has not served us so well this season as it relies on a solid defence to build your attacking platform.

    I see this one where we hope to nick a goal on the break or from a dead ball situation and hang on for dear life! Score draw at best. Thankfully l have a wedding to attend this afternoon, so l will be spared watching this.

    Woke up this morning, searched for my red socks, then though, wtf for? They never work. Can’t find the hat that seagull shat on in Brighton what seems like eons ago. That hat is key; hope it’s at my mum’s.

    On that basis we should try something completely new as so far nothing has worked for us!
