Have to say I don’t think I can recall looking forward to a mid season game so much. Its a privilege to watch our team at the moment. It’s also fair to say I had doubts last season about Peps style of play and a number of other issues mainly transfer related. Sure it’s still early days this season but the reality is when we are playing so well it’s very hard to find any negatives at the present. It doesn’t matter who he selects he appears to have got every player playing to his full potential. That said now watch us lose to Dyche’s Burnley. ?19th October 2017 at 11:39 pm #6366
Didn’t they beat us at home last year? Think we will rip them a new one though on Saturday. Or was that West Ham

Alan, can I ask are you still going through the mill emotionally every game these days?20th October 2017 at 6:41 pm #640020th October 2017 at 6:49 pm #6402
Sorry Adlab bloody autocorrect. Surely you must be a bit more relaxed these days. Aside from the pathalogical need to pass out from the back right through opposition players I am.20th October 2017 at 10:00 pm #6403

Watched the TV show Thursday with the two Burnley players From there comments they will try and rough us up….they need to remember we have a few who can also rough up, first they have to catch us. I think this game is heading for red cards21st October 2017 at 10:53 am #6408
I can’t see any other way of Burnley getting anything but a slapping unless they resort to the pushing kicking shoving, in yr face confrontations. Their manager knows 1 on 1 they stand zero chance so reduce our count on the field try to get us angry and for us to react. A kick here a bad challenge there, I do hope Pep knows what’s coming and has them on auto no reaction and go down if booted. I can see a 4-0 here, maybe more if we get into our swing early in the first half.

I hope you are right Goat, I just fear heavy challenges and confrontations to disrupt our game PLUS the risk of injuries. Early goals would take the pressure off and Burnley having to change tactics because they will come with one game plan DISRUPT, cannot blame them, all in the game but we must rise above it. Ina way I see this game being one of the toughest the team will encounter until we get on top…EARLY please, clean sheet as well. I still see red cards21st October 2017 at 11:27 am #6412
Weather might even things up a little?21st October 2017 at 1:09 pm #6416
Pep should be aware the way Burnley are likely to play. They know they are unlikely to outfootball us unless they catch us on a bad day. Their tactics are likely to be try and slow the game down and disrupt the flow, discipline in defence, share the fouls out to avoid yellow cards and get as many set pieces ax possible trying to muscle the ball in.
It may work but less chance if we score early.
Also we need to be patient if we dont score early..
