    :laugh::( Where is the first win gonna come from boys. Can we not bail out like CL sides and drop down into an easier competition and let somebody else take our place and trot off back to the championship.

    its no fun anymore up here. Hull , Villa Newcastle next 3 home games . With Stoke away after Hull.

    Yeah and i might fly to the moon, tbh i think there is more chance of me doing that in fairness before our first win

    Yep pretty much nailed on already.

    Burnley, sadly, are already done, imo. It's going to be a long dull slog for them. They just look wholly inadequate for the PL. Sometimes we get teams that just aren't ready - and this is such a case.

    Well they are the sort of games we need to be winning , if you look at the games already played though people were saying the same thing in some of them. Especially Sunderland who for me are complete shit and we couldn't manage it.

    Should of won the game in fairness and missed a penalty away to Palace that would of given us our first win. . For me the longer you go without a win the harder it is to get one. Players confidence doesn't look gone but i think its dropped a fair bit which is understandable . Id still back Dyche all day long regardless of what happens. I hope the board don't panic and sack him.

    Yeah, the manager as good as accepted that on winning promotion without decent backing.

    Just a question for you Gatti,do you reckon Coyle had a better team than Dyche has now,or has the league just stepped up about ten notches.its a tough question,the likes of Alexander and Fletcher and Nugent had the edge over players we have now

    you know something i was thinking about that only the other day. at the start of the season i was pretty sure this current side would fair better than we did back then but it seems i was wrong. Fletcher was quality and lead the line really well. i think Dyche might need to alter going with TWO strikers and go to a 5 in midfield . not many go with two out and out strikers especially struggling teams.

    Coyle side just has the edge for me, it was a lot more experienced than the one we have now, if we don't get a win or two from our next four games I think are times up, can't say I'm enjoying it much are you?

    ive got to say i think this team is better not in every position but overall. Fletcher was the stand out player last time around and i would have blake in any team. the back 5 is better this time around.

    To be honest probably not alot in it

    Would love you to stay up, sadly can't see it happening, impressed with Scott Arfield though, looks a tidy player.

    Not much in it. But this time. Better keeper, far better right back, Shacks is better than what we had then. Think Jones and Marney are a stronger midfield (well Marney was until he got injured) Ings far better than any of our strikers then, albeit Fletcher was a clever holding striker. I'd only really have Blake from that team. On his day he was unplayable. Something we have missed too often this season, a player with guile and natural creative instincts. Just been on the Shed End Chelsea forum btw and some pleasantly favourable comments about us from their fans.
