Smith missing, so Racic must be classed as u21

Good spot..... missed him as he wasn't in the squad list tonight!! 21 year olds do not count towards the totals so Racic removed and Smith in!!

Does mean that returning Racic alone does not allow us to take another player who is over 21 years old....

Pleased the Nuttall and Racic situation is sorted .
it will allow 2 better players to come in .
i think we need seasoned professionals in the door to show the way this season .
Lloyd Jones may not be the final answer but he is an improvement on any one of Horsfall , Bolger and Racic . Dyche shouldn’t be anywhere near the first team at the minute .

As I said above, we need to lose someone from the list to allow "seasoned professionals" in.... we've already accounted for Nuttall, thats what allowed us to bring Jones in. Racic doesnt make any difference to the total. Got to be looking at Lines and Martin to exit.....they'd look to be the top two, then Marshall and...Holmes? All guesswork I know, but the point is that SOMEONE HAS TO GO........

A much needed win and a much needed 3 points. Looks like the wall was at fault for the goal, not the keeper.
Looking at the Holmes situation,  I wouldn't be surprised if he moves on, not sure on his record this time around.Have the team actually won a League game he has started in since his return ?
It really might be time to let him go, with Marshall, Adams etc he might be a luxury we can't afford.

Marshall and Holmes are our two best players IF played in their correct positions, Lines and Martin, seriously who the hell is going to want that pair?
Fully expect Ricky Holmes to leave.

We could also just leave Lines & Martin out of the squad list (like we have for Nuttall) but we'd obviously still have to pay them, BUT that might prompt them/their agents to try to look for another club for regular first team football...

Only opinion but 'Marshall one of our 2 best players?' Please name ONE game he has started that he has played well. Good cameo's when coming on as sub BUT not when starting!

I want Ricky to be a success again but at the moment the jury is out for a 90 minute involvement.

My two best players, Sheehan and McWilliams trump your two!

vs Southampton Under 21s he was outstanding. His opportunities have been limited.

The play-off final he came on very early and pretty much played the whole game too.

I'd argue that, whilst not our "best" players (Sheehan is our best and it's not even close) I would say they're our two most creative - something we desperately need considering our misfiring strike-force.

Suppose it depends in what we are paying them and if someone was willing to match it at least...... if we paid them £1500 p/w to sit on their arse not on the squad list, do you think they'd up sticks and go somewhere else to have to "work" for £1000 a week? (illustrative figures only!)

Armand Gnanduillet has become a free agent, if we are looking for a big target man he could be the answer, did ok for Blackpool.

Give him a chance mate, he has been out for two years.
Definitely worth a 6 month extension.

That’s also your opinion, I agree Sheehan is our most influential player because of the lack of leaders at the back.
McWilliams is too inconsistent at the moment, he’s been playing well recently but is suspect to a rush of blood to the head, he could have been sent off again last night with a different ref.
Marshall is being asked to play out of position but to answer your question Burton, he was outstanding.
Next.

I think/hope he will be offered a contract until the end of the season at least. Game changer on his day.

Don't quite agree; about 60/70% in favour. He has to prove he can still be a game changer. From what I have seen that is still unproven and even appears unlikely. We also have to think of the future and reduce the squad numbers down required for much needed reinforcements.

McWilliams is too inconsistent at the moment


For me he’s been our best central midfielder this season and the most missed when not in the side, better than Sowerby, Watson & Missilou.

You say McWilliams is too inconsistent AT THE MOMENT and immediately say he's been playing well RECENTLY.

Is he inconsistent or playing well?

My opinion is he is one of best currently and more important for the future!
