    So we go into our 7th game of the season on the back of a 4-0 hammering and ONE goal all season. Missing our two main strikers of Vokes and Danny Ings and possibly without Jones and Marney again in central midfield . Can things get any worse :(:(:( i for one really am struggling to see where our first win of the season is coming from.

    Got to be honest i expected us to find life in the premier league tough and the opening games but i didn't imagine it to be such a poor start . No wins in six or just the single goal.
    Hopefully Dyche realizes he dropped a bollocker by signing Reid and never plays him again
    After this its West ham H
    Everton H
    Arsenal A

    I remain positive. Have to be I suppose, otherwise we might as well give up. We were a severely depleted side at the Baggies. It is a worry, but we soldier on. Looking at it from a positive side. We lost 4-0 with basically only five players playing in their preferred positions. Reid, Kightly and Wallace normally wouldn't get on the bench, let alone the field, Arfield and Boyd played out of position. Both our main strikers out injured. Everton conceded six at home to Chelsea, we played far better than the Toffees against Chelsea, yet that was Everton's first choice side. Man Utd lost 5-3 at Leicester. Subsequently, Leicester lost 2-0 at a ground, where we'd drawn and barring two world class saves we would have won. It was a disappointing result versus WBA, but those two games mentioned were far bigger shocks and they have spent many millions more on players than us. We've kept three clean sheets and arguably could have won all three. Certainly we more than matched Man Utd's multi hundreds of million pound men. Get that elusive goal and a clean sheet in our preferred 4-4-2 formation and confidence will rise. UTC!

    You are right in terms of players but even with our best starting 11 from the season so far we're not making chances at all and that for me is the biggest worry. All of a sudden i don't think the chances are going to come or free flowing football. For starters a lot of the good attacking play and crosses from Trippier isn't really happening yet and he supplied a lot of our goals last season. I hope we can somehow turn it around from the other day and get Jones and Marney back. I think slowly but surely the longer this run without a goal and win goes on confidence will start to drain away from the players . Even though we were shit defensively last time at in this premier league at least we made chances and opened sides up at times

    For me apart from Arfield we don't have a natural winger who's played this season before the game against Westbrom . come Jan and that's a very long way off now in terms of football we need to fetch one in , somebody with a lot of pace a trickery even if its on loan but i just feel the board wont back him again

    Very few decent free agents out there with those qualities unfortunately.

    Sean Dyche says David Jones, Dean Marney, Matt Taylor and Nathaniel Chalobah will all miss Saturday's match at Leicester City. WOW , not arsed about Taylor because hes absolute shit. Probably means Reid will start again , that prick shouldn't be near the first team at all. We should realize what a mistake we've made with him pay his wages up and fire him off . The balance of the side is gonna be totally wrong. Id rather see Steve Hewitt given a chance ahead of Reid at least he can pass the ball and get tackles in

    Oh and Burnley fans.I wouldnt take Pearson's comments too personally.
    My guess which will be spot on,is that it will be aimed towards your Chief Exec.The man who shoe horned Pearson out during his first spell with us,and Mandaric let him walk.
    Our local fone in was pointing towards what Sean Dyche had said after the 0-2 win for us at Turf Moor last season when he poked at us regarding pound notes on more than 5 occasions during interview.For me i'm sure we can take that and wouldn't get Pearson retaliating.

    I thought he come across as a bitter prick because they'd not managed to beat the bottom of the table side. For whatever reasons to give us zero or next to no credit for the way we performed is bullshit.

    He was wrong to come out with it no matter who its directed at Gatti.

    A few weeks ago the plastic headed c*nt at Man Utd talked us down to the level of a piece of dogshit on his shoe and it grates to hear such things.

    Its wrong to disrespect others in the way he and Pearson did.

    I taught both my kids growing up to acknowledge nobody else is any better than them and you are no better than anyone else.

    |He won't be the last manager to do it this season. In fact LVG spoke like they should of walked all over us before and after the game, although he did give us a bit more credit than your manager at the weekend. I like NP but he just made himself look a cock . Makes a change us grabbing a later point instead of letting somebody do it against us. I think your keeper should take a lot of the blame on the goal. Cant fault the strike from Wallace but the was too far over the other side. Id like my keeper to be on his toes and stand more central of the goal.
    At least Nugent didn't score his usual goal against us.

    I thought Ben Mee considering he got zero help was excellent. Shackell did well against Ulloa too and hardly let him win anything on the deck or in the air
